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

1. Every January 1st since 1976 Lake Superior University has published a list of words they'd like to see banished from the Queen's English. Words may be banished due to misuse, overuse or just general uselessness (go here to read more about how the words were chosen). Here are the words/phrases they'd like to see banished in 2014-

selfie, twerk/twerking, hashtag, Twittersphere, Mr. Mom, T-bone, ____on steroids, the suffixes-ageddon, and -pocalypse added to anything and everything, from the world of politics the words-intellectually/morally bankrupt and Obamacare, and from the world of sports the words-adversity and fan base

Which of these words/phrases would you most like to see banished from everyday speech and why? Is there a word not on the list you'd like to add?

Twerk/twerking.  Hate the word and the action.  Wish neither had ever been done and I wish I could get the video of Miley doing it out of it out of my mind.

2. What one unfinished project nags at you begging to be completed in this new year?
Painting the bathroom

3. When did you last have a bowl of soup? What kind? Homemade or from a can? What's your favorite soup?
Saturday I had Zuppa Tuscana from Olive Garden...Awesome!! Currently that is probably my favorite.  But I also love potato soup (my homemade) and Clam Chowder (Progresso). I think I'll be having that Wednesday for lunch.

4. Snowed in, snowed under, snow job...which one most applies to your life in recent days, figuratively speaking.
Snowed in...but really it's not so much snow, but freezing temps.

5. What's the funniest movie you've ever seen, or at least one of the funniest?
"RV" with Robin Williams is pretty funny!  Don't know if it's the funniest, but I do pretty much laugh through the whole thing.  Another is "Down Periscope" with Kelsey Grammar.

6. In general, would you say you're clumsy?
No, I don't think I'm particularly clumsy.

7. Elvis Presley was born on Hodgepodge Day (January 8th) back in 1935. Are you an Elvis fan? What's your favorite Elvis tune? If that's too hard, which Elvis tune do you dislike the least? Click here for a list of his songs.
Yes, I'm an Elvis fan, but not a fanatic.  I don't know about favorite, but "All Shook Up" is a fun one. "Are You Lonesome Tonight" is a good one too.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Have you seen "Saving Mr. Banks" yet?  Is it as good as I think it's going to be?  I can't wait to see it.  If you have, tell me why I should or should not go to see it this weekend, please.

I leave you with a picture of Lucy that Kelli took with her new camera.

That's Lucy's basket of toys.  Think she might be spoiled much!  haha


  1. That Lucy is so stinkin' cute! RV is a pretty funny movie!

  2. That image of Miley is one I could have lived without, too :(
    Lucy is precious, and I can see that she's one blessed puppy. There's nothing wrong with a little spoiling :)

  3. I love my homemade potato soup and my homemade cream of broccoli. We've eaten a lot of both recently! : ) Lucy is adorable, and one basket of toys is not too much. Now if she had two ...

  4. What a sweet pup. I also want to see Saving Mr. Banks, but have not yet. Happy Wednesday, and stay warm!

  5. I agree with your word and I'm so done with Miley too! I know that Joyce mention Saving Mr. Banks on her blog today.....I loved it. It was joyful and very entertaining. Of course I just love Tom Hanks!

  6. Lucy looks so cute with her basket of toys....forgot to mention that!

  7. Adorable picture!
    I've seen more then a few times today that Saving mr. banks is fantastic :)

  8. I don't go to Olive Garden often, but when I do I always get their soup and salad. I like all of their soups. We all loved Saving Mr. Banks. You'll like Mr. Disney even more after the movie I think : ) It wasn't the story I was expecting, but it's wonderful. I recommend!

  9. I am so glad I didn't see that Miley escapade- no wonder I didn't know what twerking meant! Olive Garden has the best salad and breadsticks but I haven't been there in a long time. Good to know the soups are good too.

  10. Oh my goodness ... what a wonderful photo of Lucy! She. Is. Adorable!!!

  11. Love the photo os Lucy - she is so cute! I forgot about Down Periscope that is a fun movie as well.

  12. Totally agree with the word to banish! We said practically the same thing. Lucy is adorable, I can see why she is spoiled! Great picture.

  13. I listed Zuppa Toscana too, that stuff is good! Lucy is adorable.
