Remember Me, Wednesday Hodgepodge?

I’m back!  It’s been a while, and I’ve missed being here.  I’m so thankful to our hostess, Joyce, for keeping The Hodgepodge going, and I’m thankful for the friends I’ve made here.  I’m also looking forward to visiting everyone today!

1. I feel most energized when I …have a restful night’s sleep, which doesn’t happen often.

2. Where were you ten years ago?

Ten years ago, I was living in this same house, but had only been living here about 8 months.  Back then, things were still relatively new and uncluttered.  These days, not so much.

3. July 17th is World Emoji Day. Do you use emojis? Which one’s your favorite? Your most used?

Yes, I use emojis occasionally.  The plain ole’ smiley face is my favorite, and it’s also my most used.

4. What song would you put on a wedding DO NOT PLAY list?

At first I had no idea of what to answer, then I ‘googled’ this question and had a good laugh at some of the titles.  I chose this one, for obvious reasons:

Some of my other favorites were “All My Exes Live in Texas, Suspicious Minds, Lyin’ Eyes,  and D-I-V-O-R-C-E.

5. What deserves less of your attention? More of your attention?

Although I only watch about two hours of television per day, it’s really a useless activity when I think about it, so I’ll say television deserves less of my attention.  As for what deserves more of my attention?  That would be my family.

Random:

I am still alive and doing okay!  I apologize for my absence in The Hodgepodge, but it’s been a busy summer!  My time has been consumed by our garden, and traveling to and from [out-of-town] doctor’s appointments with our daughter.  Then our oldest son and his family decided to buy a new home.  There’s been a lot going on around here!

Believe it or not,  Ed and I haven’t even had a chance to visit St. Simon’s Island yet, but we did manage to celebrate 46 years of marriage on June 18th.  However, I wasn’t feeling well on our anniversary, so we postponed our yearly anniversary trip to KFC until the day after our anniversary.  Our daughter invited us over [next door] to her house for supper on our actual anniversary, and it was delicious.

Our garden is now history, and we’ve had another bountiful season!  All vegetables are now tucked away in the freezer or in jars.  Our daughter’s doctor’s appointments are now less frequent.  We are thankful that our daughter finally has a diagnosis, after several years of suffering, (psoriatic arthritis) plus a treatment (regular injections) that seems to be helping her.  Our son and his family are still in the process of getting moved into their new home, but the worst of that is over (for us, not for them).  Life is slowing down and all is well, once again.  I think I can hear St. Simon’s Island calling my name!

  1. I’m glad your daughter is doing well. I hope you get that trip to St. Simons soon! Enjoy your day and your family!

  2. WELCOME BACK. My garden is just getting started. Loads of cucumbers so far. Nothing on the 4 tomato plants except one flower, and a few flours on my (yikes!) 24 dragon tongue bean plants.

  3. Wow, it sounds like you splurge on your anniversary like we do. LOL And I can totally relate to the ‘not so much’ of new and not cluttered. We’ve been in this house 29 years, so you can imagine.

  4. Good to catch up with you here! Our last Hodgepodge until September. Sad about that but was happy to find you here!! Hugs!

  5. I enjoyed your answers to today’s hodgepodge. I’m sad that Hodgepodge is going on break, just when I’m joining again… Let me know if you participate in any other blog surveys like this one.
    Cheers!

  6. Welcome back! You are right, a restful sleep is important. I miss the days of new and uncluttered. Good answer on television. I waste a lot of time watching TV. Thank you for the update and so glad your daughter is doing better.
