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

Hey it's Wednesday and that means it's time for the Hodgepodge.  I know I'm rather late, but better late than never, right?  Click the button above to join in with Joyce and the gain.  You won't regret it.  They are a real fun group of people.

1. Growing up, were you close to your grandparents? Tell us one or two specific things you remember about them.
We were closer to my mom's parents than my dad's, simply because we went to church with mom's parents all the time (so we saw them at the very least 3 times a week).  My dad's parents went to church with us in the summer, but they went to Florida in the winter, so we'd go all those months without seeing them, so I didn't feel as close.  Some years on Christmas break we'd get to go to Florida and visit with them and that was fun.

This is dad's mom and dad with his youngest sister

2. What's an item you were attached to as a child? What happened to it?
The family piano and my sister has that piano today in her home.

3. When you look out your window, do you see the forest or the trees (literally and figuratively)? Explain.
Literally I see the trees.  We have a little strip of  trees at the back of our property that is probably about 6-7 feet deep.  We have always called that our "woods".  The girls loved to play back there.

4. Do you like sour candies? I'm not real fond of sour candies.  Sweet Tarts would be my favorite, I guess.Which of the 'sour' foods listed below would you say is your favorite? grapefruit, Greek yogurt, tart cherries, lemons, limes, sauerkraut, buttermilk, or kumquats I really don't care that much for any of those listed.  However, I guess I would say lemons, because I love lemonade. Have you ever eaten a kumquat?I don't think so. What's your favorite dish containing one of the sour foods on the list? Already answered that above...lemonade, but also lemon cookies.
5. July 1st marked the mid point of 2017. In fifteen words or less, tell us how it's going so far.
So far it has been a pretty good year, not perfect, but good.

6. Insert your own random thought here.
On Monday we took Tracy's parents and we all went to visit Colton and Kerri.  We had such a great time together.  Here are a few pictures from my phone from that day. 

Colton and his great grandpa

That boy can flat move!!

Just like his mama.  He loves a microphone

Heading out for some fun

Hated to say goodbye 😭


  1. Gee, I should have thought outside the box on that one question. I would love to have the old piano of my mother's, but it just wasn't possible at the time she had to let it go. Little Colton is cute. I know you enjoyed that time with him.

  2. I'm so glad you got to visit Colton! He's just the cutest little thing. And growing so fast. That look on his face looks like he wasn't fond of saying goodbye either. I'm making lemonade today. You should head down here and have some. :)

  3. I'm not much on 'sour' either but I do like lemonade and lemons in my iced tea. Colton is a cutie, it was nice that you enjoyed some time with him.

  4. It was good to catch up with you through the Hodgepodge, today. I used to love Sweet Tarts, but I'm not sure I would like them now. Colton is growing like a weed! He's so cute, too.

  5. Looks like you had a great visit. I'm just discovering the joy of being a grandparent.

  6. So special to have pictures with the great grandparents. My girls knew my grandmother into their early teen years and what a treasure that is. I'm so glad you were able to visit and spend time with your little guy. He's a cutie!

  7. Don't you just love the metallic tree!! That is nice the piano is still around. Sweet Tarts are a favorite of mine too. A good year so far is pretty wonderful. So glad you got to visit with Colton.


Thanks for visiting and commenting. Have a wonderful Day!
