Wednesday Hodgepodge

Joyce From This Side of the Pond hosts a weekly Wednesday Hodgepodge of questions for fun and for getting to know each other.

1. Would you rather be seen as a person who did their duty or forged their own path?

Well…both are valuable. But I have known people who liked to forge their own path who perhaps were not going on the best path who would not listen to anyone, accept any counsel, etc. The “I did it my way” attitude is not that of a Christian in submission to God. Yet He does use brave people who aren’t afraid to step out for Him — which in a sense goes back to obedience and duty. So I think I’d have to say I’d rather be known as one who did her duty.

2. This week’s Wednesday Hodgepodge happens to fall on Groundhog’s Day. In keeping with that theme, if you could have a do-over of any one day out of the last seven, which day would it be and why. If you haven’t seen the movie Groundhog Day this question will make absolutely no sense but that’s okay….you can answer anyway.

It’s terrible that I can only remember details of the last four. I guess yesterday. I had given myself permission to have a pretty light day Monday after several days of being pretty solidly busy. Jesse was on a skiing trip Tuesday with his youth group, so I didn’t have to take him to school or pick him up — not that I mind doing so, but I was thinking without having to work around those usual events of the day, I’d be able to get a lot of errands run without having to watch the clock. But I didn’t.

3. Hot cocoa…yay or nay on the marshmallows?

Definitely yay!

4. Do you wear makeup every day? What are the top two must haves in your daily makeup routine?

I only wear a little mascara and do use it every day unless I’m sick.

5. Is it more important to you in a relationship to be loved or understood?

I don’t know how you can separate the two. It would be hard to feel loved if someone didn’t take the time to try understand you. On the other hand, probably no two people ever understand each other fully.

6. Parsley sage rosemary or thyme… your favorite?

Of those, I’m only familiar with parsley and thyme. I may have had the other two in some dishes but not enough to connect a taste to them in my mind. And those aren’t my favorites of all the spices…but I guess I’d choose parsley.

7. What do you do when you feel angry?

Seethe inwardly until I can gain the right perspective. Not healthy, I know.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Recently I posted a video of various clips of our family sledding compiled by my son to the tune of “Winter Wonderland” by Bing Crosby. I would have thought that song was in the public domain years ago. Yet YouTube is not letting it be shown in the US due to copyright violations. How come my little video only seen by a handful of people gets blocked but there are multitudes of videos of TV shows, various performances, songs, etc. with thousands and millions of hits that aren’t blocked?

And here is a cheerier thought: 46 days until spring!

  1. I love your cheerier thought!! Have you ever used smilebox? They allow you to make video with pics but if the song isn’t public you have to purchase the music. You can use music from your library but if it wasn’t purchased thru itunes they make you repurchase to be sure its legit. I love the Smilebox program and there are zillions of options.

  2. Hey, Barbara……yes, spring IS just around the corner adn yet it feels soooo far away. *sigh* Thankfully, the sun is shining in Ohio today!
