Wednesday Hodgepodge Vol. 325
Happy Wednesday! I am so glad this week is half over, it has been a doozy. Since it is Wednesday, that means it is time for Wednesday Hodgepodge! Hop over to visit Joyce and grab the questions, answer them on your blog and link up!
1. On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate your sense of direction? 1=can’t find my way out of a paper bag and 10=if I’ve been somewhere once I can find it blindfolded ten years later.
When was the last time you looked at/used a map you could hold in your hand? (phones don’t count!)
Choose one of these directional expressions and tell us why you chose it.
I would say my sense of direction is an 8 or 9. I am usually pretty good and getting around and can find someplace, without directions, a long time later. I am one of those weird people who don’t really like cell phone/GPS maps. So, I do still sometimes use a paper map. The last time was on our trip to Gatlinburg.
2. Did you do more talking or listening yesterday? Is that typical? Describe your yesterday in one word.
I think I did more listening yesterday. I was super busy and I work in an open environment office, so there is always a lot of noise I am listening to all day. Typically, I do listen more than I talk. Yesterday was BUSY.
3. Time, money, water-power-resources, opportunity…which one on the list are you most guilty of wasting? What might you do to change that?
I am most guilty about wasting power – I am always leaving the lights on in the house and forgetting to turn them off when I leave a room.
4. Did your family take regular vacations when you were a kid? Tell us something you remember about a family roadtrip from your own childhood.
We did take regular vacations, but it was mostly camping trips. Sometimes, we did go to hotels and visit museums and places like that. The one roadtrip I remember is going to a state camping meet in Chillicothe, Ohio. On the way down, we saw some “foothills” and it was my first time seeing – what I thought were – mountains. I got all excited. I remember sitting in the front seat of my grandpa’s truck, between my dad and grandpa and my grandpa saying “She’s going to love it when she sees real mountains for the first time.” You know what? He was right. I love the mountains.
5. If you could grow anything you wanted, what would you grow? Why?
I would have an entire yard of wildflowers. I think they are so pretty and I love looking at them. How cool would it be to look out all your windows and see nothing but flowers blowing in the breeze?
6. Insert your own random thought here.
If you haven’t noticed, I was very efficient on Monday and managed to schedule and post not one, but two, blog posts. I am not sure why… or what I was thinking. I guess maybe I should use my blog editorial calendar, huh?
