Well, I almost failed to accomplish this Hodgepodge today, but here I am. It's not too late to join Joyce and the others for this last May Hodgepodge of 2017!
1. What makes you feel accomplished? Explain.
Finishing whatever I started. No matter how big or how small the size of the job. Cooking, making bread, planting flowers, handling the finances these days, keeping up with maintenance of the house or our cars. Each day I feel accomplished if I have actually accomplished something. Now, as far as being accomplished at a particular thing, I can't play a musical instrument, nor do I sew, crochet, etc. I felt accomplished in my job when I worked full time.
2. If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? Tell us why.
My pastor's wife, Geni. Because of the size of our church and the demands on her both as pastor's wife and children's pastor, there isn't time to just sit down and visit and get to know her. Everything about her exudes such love, enthusiasm, encouragement, innocence and fun. She is almost too good to be true.
Corrie ten Boom - another of my heroes.
Our president's daughter, Ivanka. I would want to know how she maintains her calm composure in spite of all the ugliness and criticism of her and her family. It has to be extremely painful.
3. Do you have a great burger recipe? Not really.
What's in it? When I do make burgers, the seasoning is simple. A little salt, pepper, Montreal steak season, a little seasoned salt, garlic.
What do you like on a hamburger and where is your favorite spot to order one out?
Lettuce, tomatoes, red onion, mustard. JC Burgers a local burger chain which began as a hole in the wall burger place in Plano, Texas. The owner was a neighbor of ours for years!
Need I say more?
4. What's the biggest anxiety producing thing you do on a regular basis?
These days it might be leaving home for more than a weekend. Or handling the finances on my own, keeping up with maintenance of the house and our cars or whatever else pops up. Maybe trying to plan a family vacation produces a lot of anxiety. See random question.
5. This is the last Hodgepodge of May. Tell us about your summer plans.
Nothing planned so far except to go boating with our son's family, take the kids swimming, have company, hang out with friends, maybe take a weekend trip or two, work on a Bible study.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
I really need to plan a family vacation, but every idea I can think of is either too far, too expensive, or has now been booked up. Any suggestions would be helpful.
