The Hodgepodge Where I Can't Get the Picture to Show

For some stupid reason I can't get the Hodgepodge picture to show correctly on my post. And I can't get my signature to show correctly either. After messing with it for quite a while, I decided those two items aren't the most important part of this anyway. You know what to do with the Hodgepodge. So read along and then go to Joyce's blog to play for yourself. But leave a comment first. I'm demanding that way.
1. What do you do at the first sign of a cold? Will you get a flu shot this year?
Wipe someone's nose. I'm not usually the first in the family to get a cold, but my kids have always been generous with their germs.

2. What advice can you give about how to conquer fear?
This is not a good question for me. I'm perfectly content to cower in a closet with a blanket over my head.

3. Share two good things about your life right now.
My daughter is back home! And, my daughter is back home! That's worth two of any other good thing there is!

4. A hot fall fashion trend in 2011 is a return to sixties style...tunics with pants, shift dresses, pencil skirts, cinched waists, bold prints, high necklines and short lengths to name a few. How does this fashion trend fit with your wardrobe and personal sense of style?
When it comes to matching up these trends and my own style (or shape) I have four little words:  I don't think so!

5. Were you involved in scouting as a kid? How about as an adult?
I always try to be prepared. Does that count?

6. Apple, pear, plum, pumpkin...your favorite fall flavor?
I think if we added one more flavor, we could have a substitute that we could sing to the spice song:  "Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme...". I like apple cinnamon, by the way.

7. What characteristics do you think are essential in a good teacher?
Knowing something about your subject. I'm always amazed by people who try to teach what they don't know. But we don't usually call them teachers. We call them know-it-alls.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Did I mention that my daughter is back home? Can you tell I'm a little excited about that? She left over three years ago, and we've had precious little contact with her since then. But Saturday night she called and said she wanted to come home if we would come get her. We left within the hour and, about 26 hours of driving later, Stephanie is HOME! : )


  1. I'm so happy for you Jill! That is such wonderful news...I don't know the backstory but I will keep you all in my prayers as you reconnect. Take care!

  2. I'm with you on #4 and i pray that your reunion is happy and blessed in the best possible way.

  3. "Always be prepared", that's a good one. LOL Enjoy reconnecting with your daughter, I'm very happy for both of you.

  4. We have prayed and prayed...Praise the Lord she's home!! Love y'all!!

  5. I agree with #4 and #7. Praying for you and your family!

  6. So, Jill: Is your daughter home? :D


Well don't just stand there! Say something! : )
