Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Are you currently making plans of any kind? What kind? What emotions are associated with the planning process? Tell us about one plan you had to cancel due to the current situation which shall remain nameless. Ha!

Plans lately revolve around the swiftly approaching wedding. The emotions associated with it are a mix of excitement, anticipation, and how in the world do we have a child old enough to get married?!

We had to cancel some travel plans, but we are hopeful they will be able to be rescheduled for a later date when things are hopefully back to normal.

2. Last time you saw stars, either literally or figuratively?

I'm not sure when the last time was I saw actual stars. We've had a lot of cloudy weather, and on the nights when the weather was favorable to see stars it was still light out late enough that we went to bed before the stars came out.

3. Blueberries yay or nay? Blueberry pie, blueberry muffins, blueberry yogurt, blueberries by the handful...what's your pleasure?

I love blueberries. My favorites would be by the handful, then in pie and muffins. I don't care for them in yogurt. Actually it's the yogurt part that gets me. I ate an astounding amount of yogurt when I was pregnant with Kenneth, and ever since that when ever yogurt is presented to me my stomach twists and churns and is all "Don't go feeding me that stuff, girl!"

4. Swim against the tide, swimming upstream, in the swim, sink or swim, makes your head swim...choose one of the 'swim' idioms listed and tell us how/why you relate?

Makes my head swim ... I am feeling pulled in so many different directions with things that I should be, or could be doing that it's making my head feel all wonky.

5. Sum up your June in a single sentence.

June was a mix of major highs, and low lows, and everything in-between.

6.  Insert your own random thought here.

Exactly five weeks after being told she has cancer, my sweet mother-in-law passed away. Her funeral though sad - of-course, was also such a celebration of her life. She had touched the lives and hearts of many, and hearing all the memories was more joyful than sad.


  1. I have had a lot of starless nights due to the weather in my neck of the woods.
    So sorry to hear about your mother-in-law. Cancer is a hub passed away in 2018 with colon cancer. Prayers.

  2. I’m so sorry for your loss. Hope everything goes just how you want for the weddIng. We have one for our daughter next March.

  3. We are making wedding plans for my son and his fiancee too right now. I'm so sorry about the loss of your mother-in-law. Prayers on the way.

  4. Condolences on the loss of your Mother in Law.

  5. Sorry to hear of the loss. Wishing you all the best.

  6. 1) My plans evolve around home....getting to sleep in on Saturday & things I hope to get accomplished. I try not to think about the things I've had to cancel.

    2)I think it was last week, the last time I saw stars? I have to get up at 4:30AM three days a week & drive to my son's house by 5 to baby sit so I see the stars pretty often.

    3) I'll take blueberries any way I can get them in yogurt, eat lots by the handful with my grandson & love snacking on them with mixed nuts.

    4)Sink or's getting harder & harder to keep my head above water the longer this craziness goes on. I went from a leisurely empty-nester lifestyle to full time daycare giver to my grandson.

    5) It's June already?...wait! It's July?!

    6) So sorry for your loss.

  7. That's comforting that you could celebrate your mother in law's life during this weird season we are in. May God comfort all who will be missing her on this earth. A wedding coming soon, too. Seems we always have a good mix of joy and sorrow. Happy hodgepodge!

  8. I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your dear mother-in-law. She must have been such a blessing to so many. What a blessing that she didn't have to suffer. Planning a wedding is no small task.

  9. Sorry for your loss, but glad you could celebrate her life like that.

    Hope all goes to plan for the wedding.


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