Welcome to this week's edition of the Wednesday Hodgepodge. We're still digging out here, thankful the forecasters were overly enthusiastic in their prediction of 2-3 feet. We still have plenty of snow so they weren't completely wrong, but in this instance wrong feels right.
Okay, here we go...answer the questions on your own blog, then add your link at the end of my post. Be sure to say hi to the blogger who linked before you, because this is one place where traffic is fun! Here are my answers-
I had a doctor's appointment last week that had me a little agitated. Pretty sure I told myself to chill out as I sat waiting. My husband doesn't appreciate me telling him to chill out. I don't know why-ha!
2. What most recently caused your heart to melt?
A much easier question...my daughter's wedding.
3. "An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered." G.K. Chesterton
Your thoughts? When did you last experience either an adventure or an inconvenience? How did you see it at first, as an adventure or an inconvenience? Does it feel the same in hindsight?
The weather has caused some inconvenience around here the past few days. Hubs and I had an appointment scheduled for Monday afternoon about an hour from home that had to be rescheduled. My Women's Bible Study was cancelled today. We're housebound, and I guess in a way, a snow day feels like an adventure...a very mini adventure.
When an inconvenience cannot be avoided (like bad weather), then might as well embrace it. I think this is something I get better at with age. When I'm delayed, plans are cancelled or changed, or I'm forced to wait unexpectedly, etc I try to see that 'extra' time or new plan as a gift instead of a nuisance.
4. A Wendy's Frosty, root beer in a frosty mug, or a frosted chocolate cupcake...of these three, which one is your favorite 'frosty' treat?
A cupcake. I haven't had a Frosty in years, and other than a diet coke once in a blue moon, I'm not a soda drinker.
5. Would you say your life so far this year has been more like a circus or a symphony? Explain why.
I think of a symphony as all the many parts working together to make something beautiful. A circus on the other hand, is more like several acts happening all at once, each one clamoring for my attention.
I'm a little more circus than symphony at the moment.
6. Since it's a 'snow day' here, what's your favorite song containing the word 'white'?
White Dress by Ben Rector. I love this song, and I'm hoping our videographers incorporate it into my daughter's wedding film. She loves it too, so was a title she mentioned when they asked her to submit songs. They asked for six, so I'm sure they won't use all of them, but I do hope this one is in there.
7. If you had to leave the city you currently live in, what would you find hardest to leave behind?
The natural beauty, most especially autumn in my own backyard.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Is anyone planning to participate in the April A-Z Blog Challenge this year? If you're not familiar with the challenge, here's the 411-you blog every day (except Sundays) during the month of April. Conveniently that works out to 26 posts, and since there are 26 letters in the alphabet, you blog from A-Z. April 1st the letter A, April 2nd the letter B, and so on.
I enjoy the discipline of writing every day, and also getting creative with my chosen topic. Plus, I feel like my writing gets a little sluggish this time of year, and the challenge gives it a much needed kick in the pants. If you're new to the challenge I will tell you that it helps me tremendously to get a head start on the posts. I like to work about three or four days ahead of each letter, and set them to auto post. That way, when life get's busy (and it always does!) I don't stress out about missing a letter or falling behind.
Yes, missing a letter would stress me out.
Sign ups are open now, so if you want to participate click here to join the party. Let me know if you're playing along, so I can follow you through the alphabet.
