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

It's time for the Hodgepodge. It happens every Wednesday. Click the button to the left and play along if you'd like. It really is a good way to meet new people. 

1. Do you manage your own money or do you have a financial planner who helps in some way? Do those kinds of conversations stress you out? A lot or a little?
We manage our own and it definitely stresses me out.

2. The second week of October is Pet Peeve Week. Off the top of your head, share TWO of your current pet peeves.
Pet Peeve #1:  We're having trouble with our router at home for the internet and that really bugs me. I hate not being able to get online when I want to.  New router coming today and hopefully that issue will be taken care of. 
Pet Peeve #2:  We can't seem to get anywhere in our town with having to drive around a construction zone.  Seems they are all over the place.  Wish they could do one at a time.  lol

3. What is one thing you'd like to learn right now, this very week if you could?
How to play the piano by ear.  I play by music, but would love to be able to just hear the music and play it.  My mother-in-law is awesome with that and hubby's pretty good too.

4. How concerned are you about the recent health related news concerning Ebola? How about Enterovirus D68?
I'm concerned, but not panicked.  

5. Garfield, Nemo, or Tigger-your favorite orange cartoon character?
Nemo because he's friend's with Dory and she's my favorite!!

Picture of Nemo, Marlin and Dory from internet
 6. I'm going to see Gone Girl with my neighborhood book club this week. So often books made into film are disappointing. What's a book turned film you thought was well done, in that the casting was 'like you pictured' when you read the book, and the film plot remained mostly true to the book plot?
The second of the "Hunger Games" series, "Catching Fire."

7. What is one story your family always tells about you?
They always tell about me "running away."  I was probably around 2 years old and my brother and sister were supposed to be watching me. We lived on a farm in the country and I guess I just took off down the road. I ended up at a friend's house down the road and I believe my brother and sister ended up in a lot of trouble.  haha 

8. Insert your own random thought here.
The sky was rather cool last night.  Here are a few pictures I took with my iPhone while out with the dog.

I understand it was supposed to be even cooler this morning.  This morning was a "blood moon".  I tried to see it, but it was too overcast, so I missed it. 


  1. I was too pooped last night to attempt to take photos of the lunar eclipse. Just couldn't hang in there long enough. Great shots that you got of the sky!

  2. I didn't realize there was a lunar eclipse, so I'm glad you shared your photos!
    I'm always amazed by people who can 'play by ear'. How neat it would be, to be able to recreate a song like that!

    1. I removed this comment because poster said she hit the notify me button and was getting emails anytime anyone commented and asked me to turn it off. I didn't know how to do that. Hope this helps.

  4. I could have definitely used your pet peeves as well. Goodness soo frustrating! You got some great shots of the moon last night! Enjoy your day!

  5. We had the same movie answer :)
    The clouds were amazing around here last night too... that storm has been giving us a punch though. Tornados & hail... crazy stuff.

  6. I love the moon this time of year especially. I forgot about the time my sister and I set the kitchen on fire while my brother was babysitting. He got in a little trouble too once my parents got the whole story. We did a fair job of covering it up for a while : )

  7. Beautiful photos of the moon. Really nice. Love the story of you running away and you brother and sister get into trouble.

  8. I'm with you. I would looooove to be able to play the piano!

  9. I don't think the construction on the roads ever stops here in CA. I picked Nemo too! Very interesting sky. I missed the blood moon :( but the moon was very pretty this morning.


Thanks for visiting and commenting. Have a wonderful Day!
