Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. I read here four creative activities to try this month. They were-calligraphy, make your own cookbook, dance or learn a new type of dance, and letter writing. Which activity on the list appeals to you most? Will you add it to your August?

Letter writing, calligraphy, and the making of a cookbook ..... all things that will be worked on during the month of August here in our house. Learning a new dance ... not so much.
2. Bertrand Russell is quoted as saying, 'To be without some of the things you want is an indispensable part of happiness.' Agree or disagree? Explain. 

I've never had everything I wanted. Though I am happy and content with what I have.

Without having experienced both options, I'll refrain from giving my opinion on the matter.
3. August 17th is National Thriftshop Day...are you a 'thrifter'? If so, tell us about one of your best or favorite finds. 

I visit thrift stores several times a year. Mostly with a certain item in mind that I need, and I pretty much stick to looking only for it instead of other things that might catch my eye.
4.  On a scale of 1-10 (with 1= almost none and 10=loads) how would you rate your sense of wanderlust? What kicks your wanderlust into high gear? 

Every fall my wanderlust kicks into a full blown ten. There's so much I would like to do, so many places I'd like to see, and things I would like to experience.
5. Has life felt more like a marathon or sprint so far this month? How so?

It's been feeling a tad more on the side of a marathon. We started back to school, which somehow always feels a bit marathon-ish to me.
6. What do you need to get a jump on before fall officially arrives? 

I can't think of anything. I do have apples here waiting to be turned into applesauce, but that's more along the lines of needing to be done before they turn bad, instead of before fall officially arrives.
7. What's the last thing you did with friends or family where you lost track of time? 

Interesting conversation with friends tends to make me lose track of time.
8. Insert your own random thought here.

There's still time to enter the giveaway shared in my previous post.


  1. Happy and content with what you have...too many don't have that these days.

  2. My parents always taught me to be grateful for what I have and I think that's a wonderful life lesson that I hold onto even today.

  3. I'm wondering what it is about fall that brings on the wanderlust. Is it because winter is just around the corner? Anyway, nice to hear that you're content with what you have. So many are never satisfied and always hoping one more thing will provide the happiness they long for.

  4. Learning calligraphy sounds like fun!

  5. We love applesauce, but have never had any that was homemade. I can only imagine how good it would taste.

  6. We're still in full on summer mode here, but I do love apple picking, pie baking and sauce making once fall arrives. Enjoy your day!

  7. I so enjoy traveling but haven't done much of that lately due to health restraints. Fall always makes me want to huddle in my home though.

  8. I like that, "happy and content with what I have." :-)


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