Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Tell us about one fun thing on your June calendar.

Working on the list of June goals the girls and I created at the beginning of the year.
2. How careful are you in the sun? Do you tan or burn? Do you make it a point to see the dermatologist every year? 

Tan or burn? I do both. I try to be careful how much time I spend in the sun, until I received a nice tan, otherwise I'll get burned really fast

No, I don't visit a dermatologist every year.
3. Describe a time when you wanted to 'throw in the towel'? 

Yesterday I couldn't get online with our desktop computer. Having a wireless printer, that also meant I couldn't print anything that was stored on there, and with an important meeting coming up today it was important that I get certain things printed.

Everything indicated I was connected, and my laptop and other devices had no problem. I was about ready to throw in the towel, but as a last ditch effort and did a full system restore, taking everything back to how it had been before the latest automatic update. It worked.

Sad, really, how stressed and frustrated we can get due to uncooperative technology. Sometimes the days before all this became a part of our life .... well ... I can see why some people view the Amish life rather wistfully.
4. What's a song you love that has a day of the week in the title or lyrics? 

I can't think of any.
5. Are you a fan of berries? Which one's your favorite? What's the most recent berry dish you've eaten? Which blueberry breakfast food appeals to you most-blueberry pancakes, blueberry yogurt, or a blueberry muffin? 

I do like berries. Strawberries and blueberries are probably my favorite. The most recent thing I ate that involved berries was a bite of lemon blueberry cupcake that Rosebud made. Delicious!

The blueberry breakfast food that appeals the most to me is the blueberry yogurt, but only if it started off as fresh vanilla yogurt with fresh blueberries sprinkles over it. I don't like the premade stuff.
6. What's something you want to do before your next birthday? 

Nothing all that big or monumental. Just a whole lot of little goals I have sprinkled across these next few months. Things such a trying certain new recipes, doing specific crafts, completing some writing projects, and refinishing some furniture.
7. June 1st is National Say Something Nice Day, so let's all say something nice here. 

So thankful for good friends! They make the world a sweeter place.
8. Insert your own random thought here.

Yesterday a very persuasive college student stopped in trying to sell some educational books. He was nice, but that in turn made me feel almost guilty for not buying anything from him.

I would think that would be a miserable way to spend a summer, and am glad my summer doesn't include going from door to door trying to convince the people inside that their life would be so much better if only they bought the overpriced book I was trying to sell.


  1. I agree that technology can be very frustrating! Seeing people walk around with a screen of some sort always in their faces is frustrating, too. For all of the "connectedness" out there, people are farther apart than ever.

    Have a blessed day!

  2. Yep ICT challenges can be a pain. Our wireless printer goes offline every so often and the only way I've found to get it to work is to uninstall/reinstall it! Hopefully some bright spark might tell me a quicker way but that works ok for now. Have a good June.

  3. I'm kind of surprised people still try to sell things door to door. I never answer mine unless I know who it is : ) Technology is a blessing and a curse! I'm glad you were able to sort out the issue. I'd still be wringing my hands I'm sure. Enjoy your day!

  4. Technology is great when it's working...not so great when it's not. :(
    I always feel badly for those kids spending their summers like that. We usually invite them in (my husband does, anyway) and give them some cold water before we send them on their way.

  5. Oh computers! Sometimes they make me want to s.c.r.e.a.m. really loud! That's interesting that people are still selling books door to door when you can find most everything online. I have a list of summer goals, too.

  6. i know what you mean about computers! ugh sometimes i feel like tossing mine out the window. lol

  7. I used to work in an Information Technology department. Some days it was WAY more headaches than it was worth.

    those lemon blueberry cupcakes sound fantastic!

  8. Right out of high school I worked selling encyclopediae door-to-door. Not much fun. Alo of walking for not much money.

  9. I am glad you resolved the computer issue. The cupcake sounds good.


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