Hodge Podge Wednesday

It's Wednesday so it's time for another hodgepodge.  Link up to Joyce and the gang and learn more about your blogging buddies.

1. What do you do at the first sign of a cold? Will you get a flu shot this year?
Fortunately, I don't get a cold often, and most of the time I just grin and bear it.  Unless it gets really bad then it's dayquil, and nyquil.  I've never had a fly shot and not really sure when and if I ever will.

2. What advice can you give about how to conquer fear?
That's a hard one for me because my biggest fear is heights.  In which seems to get worse with age, and I hate it because I would love to be able to drive through the mountains when the leaves are changing colors.

3. Share two good things about your life right now.
My house is clean for a change.  hehehe
I've already started Christmas shopping, and if nothing else I've got the hardest one out of the way.

4. A hot fall fashion trend in 2011 is a return to sixties style...tunics with pants, shift dresses, pencil skirts, cinched waists, bold prints, high necklines and short lengths to name a few. How does this fashion trend fit with your wardrobe and personal sense of style?
Nothing like that in my personal wardrobe.  I don't really stay to to date on styles, if I like it, it looks good on me, and I can afford it then it's my style.

5. Were you involved in scouting as a kid? How about as an adult?
I was never in scouting as a kid.  But as an adult I have been Co-Leader when Makayla was a Daisy and a Brownie.

6. Apple, pear, plum, pumpkin...your favorite fall flavor?
Hopefully we don't have to choose from just those four.  My favorite is pecan, don't really care for fruit.

7. What characteristics do you think are essential in a good teacher?
One that realizes the students potential and encourages them to do all they can do, and not let them by with just enough to get by.   One that is kind but firm enough to keep control of a classroom.   A love for children and not money.  Because as we know teaching is not a high paying job, it's more of a calling. 

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Another giveaway coming up this week sponsored by Blog sparks, and Yo plait.


  1. Hi!
    I agree with your fashion. I wear what's comfy. Have a great day!

    Food for Thought

  2. Deathly afraid of heights - just looking at someone else somewhere high makes me queasy. I can't look out of the window when we fly - unless the clouds are right under the plane and then I tell myself that we are just sitting on top of the clouds.....I know it's silly but it works for me ;-)

  3. I have a couple of stocking stuffers set aside...other than that, nada. I would like to knock out a few things but I say that every year and usually end up doing most of my shopping in December. I think I'll at least get a list made now that I've read your post : )

  4. I'm with you on the fashion thing too. I love comfy, no matter the style.

    Wish my house was clean. hahaha

    Enjoyed your answers. Have a great day.

  5. A fear of heights is my biggest fear, too. I get all weak in the knees. I get nervous watching anyone on a ladder...

    Christmas shopping already! Aren't you on the ball?! My daughter has already picked up a few things as well. She loves to shop the sales.

    I appreciate your prayers. Thanks.

  6. Oh, yes, good old Nyquil. We're never without it.

  7. I have my own personal wardrobe as well.
    Either my mom sewed them or they were given to me.
    I like slacks or long dresses.
    I really never know what the fashion is suppose to be.
    I just wear what I like.

  8. I was thinking about starting my Christmas shopping today... I love shopping for gifts for people and love seeing their face when they open their presents. :)

  9. I'm afraid of heights, too. I can't even get on a standard-sized step ladder!

    My house is clean, too ... because I'm OCD about having the house spic n span clean when we leave on our trips. ;-)

  10. I love the apples out now - it is apple festival time here in Georgia! sandie

  11. Ohhh...can I just say that I'm really jealous of your #3 answers? You're making the rest of us look bad! LOL

  12. I can't even make myself think about Christmas shopping until after Thanksgiving. I know I should, but I just can't. Too many birthdays that have to be covered first before then!

    I do love pecan pie. YUM!

  13. I have started my Christmas shopping as well because I hate to shop in the snow and we have 2 birthdays in December! I gave you an award today so come on over to my blog to pick it up.

  14. Way to go on the shopping for Christmas!
    Looks like a good giveaway.

  15. I have ideas of what to get a couple of people for Christmas; hopefully I'll have the sense to not wait until the last minute to order them!


I love reading your comments, and especially responding back to them. So please leave your email address instead of a no-reply format.
