Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Summertime is a season of reunions, weddings, and other family celebrations and gatherings...are any of the above on your calendar in the next two months?

There are no reunions, weddings, gatherings, or other family celebrations on our calendar. But we do have a trip planned to go visit LV's parents later this summer.

2. June is National Iced Tea Month...are you an iced tea drinker? If so, how do you like yours (sweet, flavored, etc)?

I enjoy making and serving iced tea. Flavored, sweet, plain, and what ever else I decide to try. However, I don't drink it, ever. I simply don't enjoy it. LV and the children love it so we have it in our house often.

3. When were you last nervous?  Looking back, was the 'event' actually nerve-worthy?

The last time I was nervous was when I did my first talk at a book signing. After the first few minutes I started feeling better and enjoyed the rest of the event.
4. The bristle toothbrush was invented in China on June 26, 1498...not sure how that date was pinned down so precisely but, on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being sick to your stomach and 1 being not at all, how nervous do you feel when you're headed to the dentist?  Do you see your dentist twice a year?

Probably an eight. I don't enjoy visiting the dentist for any reason. Having my teeth cleaned is creepy, but have a filling done is so much worse.
5. What's making news in your town this week?

I don't pay too much attention to the news, and I honestly don't know anything newsworthy that has been happening in our town this week.

6. Curtains, drapes, blinds...your window treatment of choice? Are there any bare windows in your house? Is that by choice or because you haven't gotten around to covering them

I like curtains, but most of our windows have blinds. I have been meaning to get curtains for several rooms for close to three years already but somehow it isn't happening. We have several windows that don't have a covering that I want to get blinds for soon.
7. Summertime is officially here (in the Northern hemisphere anyway)...what one song is a must-have on your summer playlist?


8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Buddy is loving his new sandbox.


  1. What a precious picture! I miss the sandbox days : )

  2. Yanno, I really can’t imagine what drives someone to peruse “dentist” as a profession now that you mention the creepiness. Why would you want to dig in someone else’s mouth?

  3. Love Buddy in his sandbox. Oh for the innocence of a child.

  4. Selah came to our small hometown celebration 2 years in a row and gave outdoor concerts. What a message they shared! Love them.

  5. Love the message of this song. I have the Steve Petit Evangelistic Team version and I had to break it out and put it on the CD player. The verse "It was my sin that held Him there" gets me every time.

  6. Love your choice of a song,and Buddy's sandbox is wonderful. I am sure he will have many hours of fun playing in it. What a nice thing for big brother to little brother a sandbox :) Blessings
