It is time for Wednesday Hodgepodge again… and as you can tell, I have been slacking off the last couple of days. Friday we took the kids to Great Wolf Lodge for the weekend and then I just never found the time to get a couple of posts out for Monday and Tuesday. Such is life. It’s Wednesday though, so I have to do the Wednesday Hodgepodge, right? Here we go…
1. Can you believe we’re rolling in to the Labor Day weekend? What’s a project you’ll labor over this fall?
I cannot believe the summer is almost over. Over a year ago I found out they were closing the plant I worked at and I quit and started at Honda. Yikes. I swear, Christmas is just around the corner again! One project I hope to tackle this fall is refinishing my dining room table to match my new dining chairs.
2. Tell us about the best perks you ever had in a job?
When I worked at the car dealership, I was able to drive all the new cars and even take them for the weekend. The coolest car I ever borrowed was a brand new Porsche Turbo S.
3. August 31st is National South Carolina Day. Have you ever been to SC? Any desire to go? According to Southern Living, these are the top ten things to do in South Carolina…
Explore Charleston, bike, golf or relax on Hilton Head Island, see the beach and the boardwalk at Myrtle Beach, visit the state museum in the capital city Columbia, observe the wildlife and natural beauty of the Ace Basin, take a walk or hop on a trolley and check out Greenville’s charming main street, visit Fort Sumter where the Civil War began, stroll through Pearl Fryar’s Topiary Garden in Bishopville leaving time to check out The Button Museum, also in Bishopville, see Morgan Island (also known as Monkey Island)-home to nearly 4000 Rhesus monkeys.
Which is most appealing to you today? If you’re a SC native, resident, or frequent visitor what would you add to the list?
I have been to South Carolina. I have been to the beach and boardwalk at Myrtle Beach, and while I would love to go back – today, I would like to relax on Hilton Head Island or explore Charleston.
4. Beef, pork, country-style, barbecued, baby back, spare or short…your favorite kind of rib? What’s a dish you enjoy that really ‘sticks to your ribs‘?
I love me some country-style pork ribs with a tangy barbecue sauce. Usually, when we have ribs, we also have Cowboy Casserole – an au graten potato dish with bacon, corn and lots of cheese. That is one of those dishes that can fill you up, if you eat too much.
5. What’s one important skill you think every person should have? Why?
How to make change and count money without using a calculator or cash register. It drives me nuts when you hand someone money that requires change to be returned and they look at you like you are crazy. Kids (and some adults) just don’t know how to make change.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Have you gotten into the bullet journal craze? I am looking at it and playing around with it. What do you keep your journal in? A notebook? Planner?
