On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Wednesday Hodgepodge - Volume 199

Here are my answers to the questions to Joyce's Wednesday Hodgepodge. Answer on your own blog, then hop back over here tomorrow to share answers with your friends and neighbors.

1. Besides U.S. Thanksgiving, it's also National Game and Puzzle Week...what game have you played most recently, and who were you with? Have you worked a puzzle of any kind in the past week?

The grandkids and I played Candyland and Hungry Hippo. I also play Candyland with the preschoolers at church. The kids all love it. No puzzles.

2. What is one place you were thankful for this year?

I was very thankful for the hospital the two weeks I was there and even MORE thankful for my own bed when I got home. It was a great place to be!

3. Take a nap, watch football, go for an after dinner walk, or hit the stores...which ONE is on your must-do list for Thanksgiving day? For those of you playing along who aren't in the US, answer as it relates to any big holiday meal.

I will just take it easy and relax in the comfy chair while husband watches the Cowboys play.

4. Besides Thanksgiving, what's your favorite home cooked meal?

Pot roast with potatoes, carrots, green beans, rolls and gravy. Oh yummy, I could eat the whole thing myself.

5. What product from an infomercial would you most like to own?

I haven't seen any infomercials to be able to name a product, but I'm sure it would have to be something to do with hair or make-up!! I learned my lesson about 25 years ago and that is I am too gullible for those infomercials so I stay away from them.
In looking for some image to place here, I ran across this! Really? It doesn't tempt me at all. It's just funny.

6. Christmas shopping? Have you begun? Finished? Will you shop on Black Friday? How do you feel about stores opening on Thanksgiving Day? What percentage of your Christmas shopping is done online?

I haven't bought a thing although I have been looking online for ideas!! It's so much easier to buy for little ones. Everybody I know has more than enough. The Angel Tree at church and other charitable organizations make it much easier by telling you EXACTLY what is wanted/needed and truthfully, that is where I would rather give (aside from the grandkids, of course.) But give me a list and I will hop to it! Percentage? Maybbe 75%.

I won't shop on Black Friday. I'm sorry for the people who have to work in department stores and places like Walmart.

7. What are you most grateful for that adds beauty to your everyday life?

My family and friends add beauty to my life. It would be a desolate place without them. 

And sights such as this morning and evening:

8. Insert your own random thought here.

It really isn't random because I think everybody is just plain sad today. My heart hurts for the people of Ferguson and the police officers and their families everywhere.

Nonnie, I share many of your thoughts on this. I'm all for that pot roast. I had 8 for dinner the other night and fixed an old fashioned pot roast with all the veggies. They were all very happy! Also sad about the Ferguson events, for everyone anywhere near the issue.

I am a pot roast lover as well. Love your pictures. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Those are some fun games that I haven't played in years! That brush with hair color apparently didn't make it......
Happy Thanksgiving

Joyce said...

Candyland-the game that could potentially never end. Sometimes I might have stacked the deck : ) I too hurt for the families of police officers everywhere. A thankless job, but one every civil society needs. I'm afraid we're inching away from civility here. Galloping actually. Have a happy Thanksgiving day and enjoy your family. Go Eagles!

My kids at church like Candyland too!.. Best wishes to you for a blessed and very Happy Thanksgiving! ~tina (aka Beansie)

Interesting that we had the same answers for a couple of questions :)
I still love to play Candyland!
Wishing you and yours a Happy and blessed Thanksgiving,
Kathy (from Reflections by Kathy)

Terri D said...

You are right! We had several answers that are about the same! Hodgepodge is so fun! I wish you and yours a blessed Thanksgiving!

Chatty Crone said...

I remember Hungry Hungry Hippos and Candyland.
Happy Thanksgiving.

Nonnie, I've enjoyed getting to "know" you via a few of the "Retired not Tired" posts you've done. I took advantage of a little "down" time today to browse. :) I look forward to checking in more frequently in the future.

We're great game players in our family! At least once a week, my husband and I take our dominoes game to the Memory Unit where my mother resides and play with her and Dad. (She and I "partner" up.....)
