If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Wednesday Hodgepodge

After reading my answers, click the button above and join in on the first official Hodgepodge of Summer 2012.

1. Summer officially rolls in with the Hodgepodge this week, for those of us in the Northern hemisphere anyway. What song says summer 2012 to you?
I don't really have one, unless its any Disney song, since we get to go to Disney world at the end of summer and I've been listening to a lot of Disney music lately.

2. What's your favorite quintessential summer food?
Fresh Tomato and Cheese (American cheese or my favorite Velveeta Cheese) Sandwiches. Watermelon is another one.

3. I've spent a lot of time traipsing up and down the NJ Turnpike in recent weeks. Did you know the rest areas on the turnpike are named after people who lived or worked in NJ? Clara Barton, Walt Whitman, J. Fennimore Cooper, Molly Pitcher, Joyce Kilmer, Thomas Edison, and Gover Clevland just to name a few. Of those I listed, who would you most like to have known and why?
Thomas Edison because he made so many things.  Lots of really good quotes attributed to him too.  Here's one I like,  “Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

4. At what age did you move out of your parent's house and what prompted the move?
I was around 26 or so and I moved into an apartment with my sister.  My parents had a used furniture store at the time and it was just around the corner from where we moved.  We were always going there and getting new furniture.  It was so fun!

5. What's more satisfying to you-saving time or saving money?
Probably saving money.

6. Name something you think brings out the good in people.
What else but love of God and love by God.

7. This last question comes to you courtesy of Kathy over at Reflections...will you be taking a vacation or a staycation this summer? If so where will you go? If a staycation is on the calendar have you made any special plans to fill the time?
We'll be taking a vacation and we'll be going to Disney World as I said earlier.  

One of my most favorite signs to see.  It means we're almost there.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Lily did well with her surgery and got to come home tonight.  She had 3 tumors removed and her teeth cleaned too.  She's sleeping now.  She looks so cute because she can't stay awake.  I love this dog and am so thankful she's okay now.


  1. I'm glad that you cute dog is doing OK. Love the quote! So true. And your answer to #6 was perfect!

  2. I am glad your Lily is ok. We have an old dog that may be making us make some tough decisions soon. Her name is Tia, she is a Chesapeake bay retriever and she is 13 this year. Her back legs don't work so good anymore.

  3. I'm glad all went well with your pup! Wish we were going to Disney this year!

  4. So glad that your Lily is doing well after her surgery.

    It's about time to start planning our trip to Disney for next May. We'll be taking DD and her family ... and I can't wait to see the Ts' reaction to Disney!

  5. Glad your dog is doing better! Have a blast on your trip!

  6. Disney songs are under-rated. They are great. and I love Disneyworld! I know you'll have a blast!

  7. I'm so glad your fur-baby is doing OK too!!!!

    Another trip to Disney? I'm so dang jealous!!!

  8. Would you believe that I've never had a tomato and cheese sandwich? I need to get with the program, huh? Have tons of fun at Disney...love that place! Feels so good to just be a kid, again...if only for a little while!

  9. Glad your puppy is good! They are like our other kids. I used to love a slice of fresh tomato and Miracle Whip Sandwiches, unfortunately I cannot do that anymore. Too much acid, when I eat tomatoes or tomato product, the whole inside of my mouth gets little bumps and blisters. I miss them!
    until next time... nel

  10. I find your summer food answer so different from the others I have read today yet a fresh tomato and cheese sandwich sounds very good!
    Have fun at Disneyland. Maybe if I get to Florida to see my dad I will check in to see when your actually going to be there. I haven't been to Disney World since my children were very little. So glad that Lily is doing okay. I love when they have a buzz :)

  11. I just realized that #1 said "summer 2012"! LOL! I completely missed that it had the year in it! :)
    I remember seeing that sign 13 years ago when we took the boys...I just couldn't believe that we were there!
    Glad Lily is doing well.
