Is it Wednesday Again Already Hodgepodge?

Time for another installment of Wednesday Hodgepodge brought to you by From This Side of the Pond. Let's see what questions Joyce has come up with this week.

1. What was your biggest worry five years ago?  Is it still a worry? 

Who can remember? There is a moral in that, isn't there?

2. Yesterday (October 15th) was National Grouch Day...what makes you grouchy? What cheers you up when you're feeling grouchy?

Being too busy, hungry, or tired makes me grouchy. I'm cheered by a good book, a good meal, rest, or something to laugh at.

3.  In one word, how does it feel to be photographed?     Yuck.

4. Besides your parents, who would you say had the greatest influence on you in choosing your life path?  Explain. 

I really can't think of anyone who influenced my life plan.

5. The crisp days of autumn are here ...what's something you like to eat, but only if it's crisp?


6. What's the most useless object you own?

The object I'm thinking of is quite useful, except I've never used it. It is the food dehydrator given to us as a gift 15 or 20 years ago that hibernates in the back of a corner cupboard, brand new and never been used.  I can't part with it because I am going to use it someday. Truly.

7.  Share a favorite fall memory. 

I can't pin this down to one specific time, but a favorite memory I have is walking through piles of leaves shuffling my feet and kicking the colorful leaves up in the air

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Two of my kids seemed to have had food poisoning this week on two different continents. Poor sweeties. Wish I could have been there to comfort them and offer ginger ale.

  1. Oh my gosh any time my kids are sick - I gave them ginger ale! Still do to the close ones. LOL That is so funny. It works too.

  2. I also hate having my pic taken!

  3. Oh food poisoning is the worst! Hope everyone has recovered! Ginger ale helps me too, and makes me think of my childhood : )

  4. Hi Elizabeth! Your answer to having your photo taken is mine too! Yuk!
    And I am so grouchy when people keep asking me questions when I'm trying to get things done. I start out patient, but then? Not good!

    I am so sorry to hear about your children. I have had food poisoning, and it is AWFUL. And to have two at the same time? Wow. That's weird, huh?
    Have a wonderful weekend :)

  5. Stopping by your blog today. I really like the fall. The leaves changing colors is very beautiful, and makes for a nice car ride in the country and it's not too hot or too cold. Enjoyed reading your posting today
