Wednesday Hodgepodge

From this Side of the Pond
1. What has been the highlight of your summer so far? (It's still summer people!)

Our summer was a full one. The highlight though that will always stand out as something to remember from Summer 2018 is that Kenneth got engaged to a sweet young lady.

Other fun, but less memorable things from this summer are the days we spent at the County Fair, the hiking and exploring we did, and how extremely wet it was.

2. What do you wish you'd done more of this summer? Less of?

I wish we could have done even more hiking. Less of ... definitely could have done without the ugly virus we managed to pick up and fought with for weeks.

3. Something you're looking forward to on your September calendar?

My September calendar is looking more relaxing and I'm really looking forward to that. We do have plans for some fun projects, and it's the time of year to start thinking of fall housecleaning which is all of a sudden making my unscheduled September look a whole lot less relaxing.

4. Best/favorite book you've read this summer?

The best book I read this summer, and yes I'm repeating my last post, but the book is good enough that I don't feel bad about mentioning it in back to back posts. How to Live Like a King's Kid by Harold Hill.  It's so encouraging, convicting, and inspirational. Our family already has testimonies we could share of the things God has been doing, since we've read it.

A close second is a book I'm reading right now by the same author ... How to Live in High Victory.

5. Share something positive, encouraging, or uplifting here.

It's so encouraging to this Mama's heart to hear the thoughts and questions this little guy has about all things and how they relate to God and life.

6. Insert your own random thought here.

The summer break for the Wednesday Hodgepodge is over. However it looks like this might be the last one that its creator, Joyce, from The Far Side of the Pond will be doing. I'll miss it. In its absence I'll be continuing answering weekly reader questions, as I was doing during the break.


  1. Wait! What! Kenneth is engaged? I missed that somehow. It seems that when I started following you he was just a young boy. Congratulations to the whole family.
    I’m finding it hard to believe that summer is almost over. It went by so quickly.
    I hope you have a wonderful day MayAnn and enjoy every moment.

  2. An engagement is always so memorable. Congratulations. Sad to see the hodgepodge end but understandable. Blessings!

  3. So what are somethings you are looking forward to as fall nears?

  4. Hello, nice to visit you today on the Hodgepodge. An engagement is a special occasion! God bless you and your family.

  5. Congratulations to Kenneth and his special lady! I hope that their lives will always be filled with the love and joy that they feel now!
    PS I've really enjoyed your summer HodgePodge and am happy that you will continue it!

  6. Mary Ann, I enjoy the question that people ask much more than these so I am looking forward to those returning. Just giving a little feedback.

  7. I also missed the post where you mentioned that Kenneth was engaged. Congratulations to him and his fiancee.

  8. Congratulations to Kenneth and his fiancée!

    Thank you for continuing with reader questions. I so enjoy reading your answers.


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