Another Wednesday Hodgepodge…

From this Side of the Pond

It’s Wednesday, and, for now, that means joining Joyce for another edition of The Wednesday Hodgepodge.  If you’d like to join, too, simply click on Joyce’s button at the top of this post, copy, paste, answer the questions, and link up!

1. What’s something you resolved to do this year? Have you done it?

2019 was a horrible year for me.  I was plagued by various health issues the entire year.  Dental woes (including two surgical extractions and dry socket, twice),  a thyroid imbalance issue, TMJ (caused by those dental procedures) another nasal skin cancer & plastic surgery, and more neck/ back issues occurred consecutively, and sometimes simultaneously!  I literally spent the majority of the year sprawled out in a zero gravity chair in the middle of our living room floor!  I often felt as if life was passing me by, and it was.  Finally, toward the end of 2019, my health began to slowly improve.

I was resolved to have a better year in 2020, and so far, I have been able to do that, praise the Lord!  My back still causes pain, at times, but nothing I can’t handle, so far.  There’s another back surgery looming somewhere in my future, but other than that, the other health issues have been resolved.

2. Where do you go to find quietude?

The best place for me to find “quietude” is in the bathroom, soaking in a bathtub full of hot water.  It’s my favorite time of the day.

3. A friend asked this question on her Facebook page and said I could borrow it for the Hodgepodge…you’re only allowed to buy 5 things at the grocery store, and all must start with the first letter of your first name. Whatcha’ buying?

Since my first name begins with a “K”, I wouldn’t be buying much!  Perhaps I could buy some “ketchup”, or some “Kellogg’s” cereal.  Oh, and maybe some kettle corn!

4. The television show Survivor, the Gloria Gaynor song ‘I Will Survive’, survival mode, survival of the fittest…pick one and discuss.

Ed and I have been fans of the show “Survivor” since its beginning.  We don’t enjoy the show as much as we used to, but still feel compelled to watch.  The earlier shows were much more interesting, and so were the competitors.  I guess we’re not alone in this opinion, since this season’s show has brought back some of the best competitors, from past seasons, to compete against each other.

5. Share a favorite quote or saying about strength.

Here’s one of my favorites:  “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”  Phillipians 4:13 KJV     I’ve relied heavily on this bible verse to help me when I was forced to do things out of my comfort zone.

6. Random:

Our governor has decided to allow our salons, nail parlors, tattoo parlors, gyms, and bowling alleys to reopen this Friday, followed by movies, restaurants, churches, etc., on Monday.  Really?  Our cases of covid 19 are still on the rise, so it will be interesting to see how this decision works out.  As of last night, Georgia has 20,166 cases, with 818 deaths–and rising.

  1. So glad 2020 is better for you, hope all goes well with the back surgery.
    You have shared one of my favorite verses, I too quote it so often.
    Enjoyed your post, have a blessed day.

  2. SC is also slowly reopening, although I don’t think salons or bowling alleys are on the list. And schools are out for the year now, just announced today, so that’s a bit of a relief as my daughter is a teacher. Hubs and I have already said when things open up we will not be first in line. We will stick to just the grocery store for a while longer. And we plan to take the boat out for the first ride of the season, which will feel like we’re doing something. Honestly I am liking being at home a little too much : )

  3. I’m happy to hear that 2020 has been better for you health wise. Good answer, I need to try a soak in the tub. Excellent quote. I know that the economy will not survive unless things are open but you won’t see me going to any of those places in the near future!! People have to do social distancing and wear masks along with washing their hands!!!!
