Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Something on your October calendar that makes you smile?

Starting our traditional 45 Day fruitcake is always a fun thing to do towards the end of October.

2. Food for the soul or music for the soul...which camp are you in? Tell us why.

Though I really enjoy cooking and baking I have to go with music on this one. Apart from a good book, music is the next best thing to get lost in. I love music that speaks to me.
3. What are two or three things you've learned recently as the result of an online search?

My most recent online searches were for a sauce to go with mushroom ravioli, and how to do some computer coding. I found the answers to both queries and was able to accomplish what I had wanted.
4. Share your favorite game day recipe. You can describe it, post the how-to, or add a link to the actual recipe.

One of our favorites is Bacon Wrapped Jalapenos.
5. What are your five essential steps for creating the perfect morning routine?

I don't know that this would qualify as the perfect morning routine, but here are the first five steps to my mornings.

1. Shut the alarm clock off at 4:20
2. Get dressed.
3. Stumble down the stairs.
4. Turn on the kitchen light.
5. Start the coffee and oatmeal for LV.

6. What small thing have you taken note of today?

My day is only beginning and for the most part I haven't been awake enough to take note of any small things.

7. Sum up your September in seven words or less.

Enjoyed learning some new things everyday.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

You know the saying ..... don't cry over spilled milk.  I'm wondering if it is okay to at least whimper a little, especially since I literally have to clean up a huge mess as soon as I hit the publish button for this post.


  1. Oh my 4.20 am! That's the middle of the night! lol Hope you got cleared up quickly.

  2. Yikes! 4:20AM??? I agree.... along with music I love to get lost in a great book! Have a great week!

  3. Goodness your day begins early! Yes it is permissible to shed a few tears over spilled milk : )

  4. 4:20???? How can you function? I thought I was an early riser at 6 AM. Good grief, I feel like a total sloth now. :-) Thanks for giving me an idea of what to do with all my extra jalapenos I pulled off the two amazing plants last night before the frost hit. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  5. We get up at 5:30 and I thought that was early! I hope your day gets better after cleaning up your mess. And I have to agree with music, although I love to read too.

  6. I haven't seen 4:00 AM since I stopped nursing my kids, but if you are still farming - well, cows won't wait. I also enjoy good music; we have a marvellous all-classical station here, which is nice. I enjoy a really good book, too, but don't always have time to sit and read. I enjoy getting books on tape from the library and listening to them while I do other things.

    Crying over spilled milk - or anything else - doesn't clean up the mess, but it does relieve the frustration, and you hit the job with a clear head. Tears wipe away cobwebs.

  7. What a nice seven words to describe September!

  8. That fruitcake traditions sounds interesting. What do you do for 45 days? Those bacon wrapped jalapenos sound yummy.

  9. I am thinking you get up at that time to get your husband's breakfast, which is wonderful. I would think it would be a nice little time to yourselves, also. My husband and I get up very early on Sunday morning so we can have some time alone.


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