Wednesday Hodgepodge: Fall into Playing

Welcome to the Fall edition of the Wednesday Hodgepodge and I hope you join in on the fun.

1. The Wednesday Hodgepodge this week falls on John Chapman's birth date.  He's more famously known as Johnny Appleseed...what's your favorite variety of apple? 
I really like Gala and Pink Lady apples.

2.   When did you last say 'ick'? 
I was reading a story about a 2 headed snake! I thought "ick" real fast as this snake has a head at both ends!  Talk about Push Me-Pull Me!

3.   Do you think there's a generation gap?  Explain. 

I often think that there is a time when parents and kids don't see eye to eye and time has to pass before both can fully see the point of view of the other. Grandparents and grandchildren often see eye to eye and enjoy each other's company. Not sure if that is a generation gap or if generations needs space.

4.  What's on your computer screen saver?  Do you leave it alone or change it often? 
At work I have a picture of our little dog August playing out in the day care yard. At home there is a picture of me and my friend Anu with our little dogs when we were down south last November. I don't change  it very often because I love the pictures and makes me smile each time I see them.

5.  If you had the attention of the entire world for two minutes, what would you say? 

"STOP" Stop trying to get someplace and look where you are. Stop fighting and enjoy what you have.  Stop blaming the world for your troubles and do something about it. Stop hurting our children and start protecting them. Stop letting criminals out and keep them in jail away from everyone. Stop watching all those "Reality " shows, you must know that they are not "Reality". Stop chasing sin and chase truth, faith and God.

6.  Four fashion trends to try this fall are-brocade/jacquard (fancy printed fabrics), peplum, lace, and printed pants...which of these four would you be most likely to wear? 

OK well, I'm not a slave to fashion. My clothes consist of jeans, warm tops, warm sock, sneakers and a few heels. I dress for warmth not fashion. So I will continue to wear what I wear.

7.  What can make your bad day better?
Coming HOME to Gerry and the dogs. Having cuddle time on the couch or out on the deck with those I love. Quiet prayer time with my Lord.

8.  Insert your own random thought here. 
The new season of our favorite shows start this week. Have you been watching? I really like The Big Bang Theory and it started this week.  How about you? Enjoying the new season. I'm wondering how long it will be before the shows that I've not seen are already canceled!


  1. I like your answer to #5. Yes, yes, yes!

  2. The only show that I faithfully watch is NCIS. DH likes to watch baseball in the evenings, so that's usually what the TV is on ... and I enjoy baseball, so I don't complain ... besides, by eveningtime, I'm usually either quilting or reading, so I'm not really watching all that closely ... the TV is more background noise for me than anything.

  3. Yes, I'm enjoying the new shows too, however most of them I have to watch "on demand" as we haven't been home much this week. I should be able to catch on Thursday and Friday night...maybe.

    Good answer to #5. I think I'd have a hard time reading about a 2 headed snake. ick!

    Have a great day!

  4. I had to laugh about your fashion answer, that describes my wardrobe as well. I happiest wearing a comfy pair of jeans.

    Loved the answer to #7 as well, nothing like coming home to loved ones (human or animal) to brighten a bad day.

  5. We don't watch a lot of regular programming but I am looking forward to Nashville with Connie Britton.

    Have a great day!

  6. Love your answer to #5 for sure and couldn't agree more! It's always fun to read everyone's different take on the Hodgepodge. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  7. You're answer to #5 is Spot On. I keep telling people to stop and smell the roses however I am retired and have the time to stop. We are caught up in watching DWTS because we like to critique the dances.

  8. I loved your answers this week. You are right on the money on number 5! A two headed snake? Ewww

  9. Pink Lady apples...not familiar with those, I will have to check them out. The name sounds interesting.
    Like you I am not a fashionista, I want comfort and clothes that I can wear out before replacing. I especially love sweaters.
    I very much like your answer to number five!!

  10. I think you nailed it on the generation gap; grandparents are like the ultimate referees!

  11. I don't think I've seen a pink lady apple. I always say eww. Great words to say to the entire world! Yes I love when the season starts and Big Bang Theory is one of my favorites too.

  12. I missed Big Bang on Thursday! Hope it's on the internet!


Thank you for stopping by today and if you left me a comment, thank you twice!
