Wednesday Hodgepodge #167


I'm linking up with Joyce for her weekly "Wednesday Hodgepodge" link up.  This is my first time and I thought she had some great questions.  So, here we go!

1. Thursday marks the first day of celebrate would you rather plant a garden or go for a walk in the woods? Would either of those activities be possible on Thursday where you live?
I would definitely rather go for a walk! Yes, our weather is supposed to be sunny and warm here on Thursday.

2. When did someone last spring something on you? (or when did you last spring something on someone?)
We are in the middle of building a house so my hubby is always springing things on me...telling me to decide on countertops, flooring, paint colors, etc.

3. We often thing of spring as a time for new beginnings. What's something you'd like to start doing this spring?
I really want to start some of my craft projects that I've put off for a long time.  I've saved a bunch of pallets from our house building project and I'd really like to remake them into something useful and cute!

4. Where do you like to sit in a movie theatre? When did you last sit there, and what were you watching?
I ALWAYS try to sit in or near the back of a movie theater.  I just get kind of sick if I'm too close.  We just went to see "The Son of God" with our friends in our Bible class just a few weeks ago.

5. When you meet someone for the first time, what do you want them to think about you?
I hope people see that I'm just a genuinely nice person.  

6. March is frozen food month (yes, really!). Besides ice cream (gotta make you think a little) what's your most often purchased frozen food item?
Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits! I love that I can only pull out as many as we need since it's just the hubby and I here now.

7. What's something you avoid?
I avoid confrontation at almost any cost!  I just want everyone to get along and have World Peace! haha  

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Down the road a few miles from our house is this-
It's always a good little reminder that JESUS is always near and watching over us. This has been on the mountain side for as long as I can remember. It's made from rocks and someone has taken it upon themselves to keep it up and in order. When my kids were small and we traveled this stretch of road, they Would have their eyes up ahead trying to be the first one to see "Jesus on the mountain".

Have a great Wednesday!


  1. Was The Son of God a good movie? I want to go see it. I had the same answer for number 7. I enjoyed reading your answers and visiting your blog. I have put it in my blog list.
    Have a wonderful day.

  2. What did you think of The Son of God? I've heard good things about it and I love Roma Downey!

  3. Building a new house certainly has lots of surprises and decisions to be made! I hope you love it when it's completed! I am like you in trying to avoid confrontation at all costs - AND wanting world peace!! ( :

  4. Love the picture in your random thought!

  5. Welcome to the Hodgepodge! So glad you joined in today. I saw a cute project on Pinterest I'd like to try. It was a pallet painted like an American flag, and the owner propped it up on their front porch. I'd love to do something similar, but first it has to thaw out here! Enjoy your day : )

  6. Building a new house sounds very ambitious. It must nice though to make it completely yours.

  7. Thank you so much for visiting my blog today! It's nice to 'meet' you :) I enjoyed your answers, and, especially, your random thought.

  8. This is a fun linkup! Is love to see your pallet projects when you finish them!

    Thanks for all your support you give me on my blog! The encouragement is just what I need sometimes, especially from someone who has been there!

  9. Welcome to the Hodgepodge! When DH and I decided to downsize, we contemplated building but I had a hard enough time choosing fixtures and such when we remodeled our kitchen ... I knew building would just be too stressful for me ... I'm so indecisive. ;-)

  10. I love how you talk about Spring. Its so wonderful. Hope you have a wonderful day :)

  11. Hi, It's nice to meet you through the Hodgepodge. Thanks for visiting my blog too. Love your Jesus on the mountain and how your kids always tried to be the first to see it. If only as adults we were that eager to "see" Jesus everyday.

  12. Cheryl, I enjoyed your Hodge Podge. I'm sure I've seen projects made of pallets on the DIY network, but of course, I can't remember what they are right now!
    Happy first day of Spring.

  13. Thank you, Cheryl, for the nice comment you left on my page. I enjoyed reading your Hodgepodge and I'm glad you've joined int. I love the Jesus on the mountain. I hope that can stay there for many years to come.
    I've wanted to see that movie. Did you like it?

  14. Ok, so I'm finally getting around to visiting the sweet people who stopped by my blog on Hodgepodge day! I love your Jesus Mountain - in my hometown (a suburb of LA nonetheless) every Christmas someone put a giant lit cross on the San Gabriel mountains above my house - it just didn't feel like Christmas without it when we moved away!
