While the creator of the Wednesday Hodgepodge is on a summer break, I have turned to my readers for questions to do our own little hodgepodge. Thanks so much to everyone who has provided questions for me to answer.
If you had one day to yourself what would you do?
It's been years and years since I had a day to myself. What would I do other than miss my family? The idea of having hours to do nothing but read, or craft, or do any fun little thing I like sounds nice, but I'm guessing if that actually happened I'd probably clean, prepare some type of special food for everyone to enjoy at the end of this "me" day, watch the clock to count down the hours, and try to get some writing done.
Do you prefer dresses, skirts, jeans, or leggings?
I wear mostly skirts, they're my favorite. I have several dresses I wear occasionally. I do wear jeans when out and about hiking etc. I have never, nor do I hope to ever wear leggings. I won't go into my opinion of them, suffice it to say they're definitely not a part of my or my daughters' wardrobe.
Would you ever return to the Amish?
Never say never ... right? But no, I don't see us ever returning to the Amish. We would have to renounce our believer's baptism as well as other parts of our faith and we can't do that. The lifestyle itself I could live with, but being Amish is much more than the lifestyle.
Another question-- do you watch TV now?
Yes, we watch some TV. We record almost everything we watch so we don't have to see commercials. We watch a lot of cooking shows and competitions. Our favorite being, The Great British Baking Show. Another favorite is How it's Made among a variety of others. The Hallmark channel is supposed to be a good one, but I find I really don't like it. I don't care for the way they portray love, commitment, and relationships. In almost every movie I've watched the main character is in a serious relationship, often even engaged until they meet someone so much better, fall in love, then break it off with the original person they were with to go live their happily ever after. I don't think that's sweet and innocent.
Any picky eaters in your family?
Steven is our pickiest eater, though he will eat everything. He simply doesn't care for vegetables and fruit. He'll eat them first and fast and then settle in to enjoy the rest of his meal. We all have some things we would rather not eat. For me that's steak. Beef in general I don't really care for, but steak is the worst. Oh, and oatmeal I just can't!
Random bit ...
The birds all seem extra happy this morning. The trees around the house seem alive with their sweet songs. I think they're happy to have a sunny morning once again.
