Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Are we always responsible for our actions? Are there any exceptions?

I do think we are responsible for our actions, I can't think of any exceptions. We always have a choice how we act and react to anything and everything.

2.  Has anyone from your home town become famous?

Over the past several years the town I was born in watched one of their own become very famous. The town I grew up in doesn't have any famous people.

3. January was National Slow Cooker month. Do you own a slow cooker/crock pot? Did you use it last month? What's a favorite dish you make using a slow cooker or crock pot?

I own a slow cooker and use it frequently. It was used last month to make Spicy Cranberry Wings. One of our favorite dishes to make in the slow cooker is a pork roast.

4. How do you feel about private companies collecting data about you?

It doesn't bother me too much as long as I have dealings with them and they don't share or sell any of it to others.

5. The Games of the 2014 Winter Olympics kick off with their opening ceremony this coming Friday....will you be watching? Which Winter Olympic event would you most like to see in person? Have you ever been to Russia? Any desire to go, Olympics or otherwise?

I have zero desire to go to Russia. I'm not that into the Olympics so I really don't have any of the events that I'd want to see in person. I'm not planning to watch the opening ceremony.

6. Share a good or bad sports related memory from your childhood or teen years.

I was a book worm and a student that loved studying. Any sports, no matter how simple was basically torture to me and therefore not a good memory.

7. What's a must have song for you on a work out play list? If you don't work out, run, swim, bike, walk, or anything else that could be construed as 'exercise', then what's a song that motivates you to at least get up off the couch?

Music that always makes me feel like moving is an instrumental piece titled by the puzzling name, Joy of Life/ Trout in a Bath 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I'm not doing much moving at all since snapping something in my right leg. I don't have time for this, but sometimes being forced to slow down isn't all bad. Buddy seems to enjoy extra story times. Spending more one on one time with him is the silver lining to this particular cloud.


  1. Sports were torture for me, as a child, too :(
    I hope your leg heals soon, but you're right, sometimes it's good to slow down a bit. Enjoy those story times, they'll be gone before you know it.

  2. I hope your leg heals and you're back feeling better soon. It's hard to be down with little ones moving around : )

  3. Feel better soon. Here in NH SWMBO and I are enjoying being snowbound at home together.

  4. Each time I read one of your hodgepodge posts I'm struck by how similar our tastes and likes and dislikes are. I almost believe we could be long lost siblings! :-) my prayers will be with you as your leg heals but meantime I know you're enjoying your slower times with your children.

  5. Sending up prayers that your leg heals real soon!

  6. Hi! Thanks for visiting me. Your blog is feminine! Sorry you hurt your leg...hope it is much better soon. Take care, rest and try to enjoy this "bump" in the road! :-)

  7. Joyce gave us another good Hodgepodge. I always enjoy seeing how many answer the same way, and so far, everyone has answered #1 the same. Interesting!!

  8. I wasn't all that good at sports even though I liked playing and being with friends other than at school. As I got into my teens I stopped playing because I didn't think I was good and wasn't getting better at softball or soccer. I do like to run and of course that is a sport. I wish I had joined the track team at my high school but I didn't make the team. I know some sports can be torture especially those awkward jr high PE days! :0

  9. You certainly have my curiosity… who is the famous person from your hometown? Heel quickly!

  10. Prayers for a speedy recovery!

    Now I'm going to have to see if I can find that song - I'm intrigued by the name too!


  11. Spice cranberry that sounds mouthwatering good!!!!

  12. I see how that song makes you get up and move. Playing it right now and it's very cheerful.

  13. Oh geez - here it is almost time for another Hodgepodge and I'm just now sitting down to visit all of my "friends" who stopped by my page last week! I do so enjoy hearing from you each week! :-) What an interesting song title... may have to go see if I can find it! That's definitely one you'd like to ask the composer about! I hope your leg heals quickly - sometimes the Lord really does "make us" lie down in green pastures to get rest, doesn't He? Be patient with the healing process! See you in a few days for the next Hodgepodge!


Thank you so much for taking time to comment. I love hearing your thoughts.
