Who loves the Hodgepodge?

Extremely trying day yesterday dealing with airports, canceled flights, weird unexplained power outages in the Newark terminals, overworked crew, blah blah blah. My daughter1, who was supposed to arrive home at 11:15 am yesterday morning, finally made it to the Garden State a little after 9 PM last night. Has this been a winter or what? Not that this had anything to do with winter but winter is wearing me out. It is so much easier to cope with life's little aggravations when the sun is shining, don't you think?

Between fretting and checking the flight updates and watching the weather and fretting some more and re-checking the flight updates I managed to write questions for this week's Hodgepodge. Everyone is welcome to play along~answer the questions on your own blog (or facebook page if you don't have a blog) then hop back here tomorrow (Wednesday) to link up your answers with all the other internets. See you there...

1. What is more important-doing what you love or loving what you do?

2. Do you like bleu cheese?

3. What is the most difficult emotion for you to handle?

4. Fresh flowers or a box of chocolate?

5. What's a song you love that has the word 'love' in its title? It doesn't have to be a 'love song'.

6. Are you the person you wanted to be when you grew up?

7. Any special Valentines Day plans?

8. Insert your own random thought here.


  1. Glad daughter1 made it home . . . finally. I hope you have a lovely visit!

  2. airport woes...so happy she's inm and safe

    enjoy your time 2gether

  3. Glad to hear that she made it home in spite of the delay(s). How long will you have her with you? Enjoy your time together!

  4. I know how hard it must have been to watch the flights and wait for your daughter- glad she made it home safe. Good questions today.

  5. Hi Joyce, just stopping by to "catch up" and thank you for your prayers for us over the past few days. Brad is home, and slowly improving. He's staying with me, so I can "mother" him a few days :)

    I'll be back tomorrow to join in Hodgepodge. Thanks again for another great set of questions. Enjoy your daughter's visit :)

  6. Thank you Joyce!! It must have been difficult for you and I just wanted you to know I appreciate the effort you put into your hodgepodge each week.

  7. Joyce,
    Clever questions. The bleu cheese one was very Hodge Podgish of you!

    Happy Valentine's Day...can't wait to hear how a real wife of NJ celebrates that day...which leads me to...
    I wanted to be you when I grew up!

  8. 1. Loving what you do--gets at making the most of a situation
    2. Yes
    3. Resentment
    4. Fresh flowers (dieting now)
    5. "All You Need Is Love"
    6. Yes, but sometimes I want a re-do on youthful choices or at least to peek down the road not taken
    7. Ballet and dinner with friends, Giselle-- a love story, naturally.
    8. Love the sea of red and pink that is Valentine's Day--takes away Feb grays!
    8. Love the sea of red and pink that is Valentine's Day!
