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

Click the button to join up for the Hodgepodge at Joyce's blog.

1. American Idol is back for a 14th season. Are you watching? Have you ever watched? If you were to audition for the show (or were made to audition), what song would you sing?
No, I'm not watching.  At least not yet. Yes, I have watched...the season Scotty McCreery won.  Oh my goodness, I have no idea what I'd choose.  Maybe a country ballad of some kind.  Hopefully uplifting...not a bar song.  

2. Mark Twain is quoted as saying, "If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first."

So when did you last have to 'eat a frog'? Or two? How'd that work out?
Typically, I put things off as long as I can, but really it is better to do it right away and get it over with.  However, that can backfire.  I remember my senior year in Spanish 3 we had to write a story all in Spanish and then share it in front of the class.  My friend and I decided to do ours first and get them over with.  Well, we did it!!  And then the teacher never followed through and not another student had to do it.

3. If you were going on safari, what is the number one animal you'd want to see?
A lion

4. January 21st is National Granola Bar Day. I know. Do you like granola bars? Chewy or crunchy? Your favorite flavor? How about regular granola? Let's exhaust this topic in honor of the holiday okay?
Yes, I like some of them.  Chewy.  One with chocolate in it.  Regular granola is okay.

5. If only__________________________________________.
I could lose 50 lbs before my daughter's wedding...realistically I'll be happy with 20 and I think I can do that.

6. You can add one item to your bedroom. What will it be? Keep it family friendly please.
A gas fireplace

7. What is one thing you've enjoyed about winter thus far? If it's not winter in your corner of the globe, what season is it, and what is something you've enjoyed about whatever season it happens to be?
That the temperature has gone up and down enough that I don't feel like I live in the arctic circle. Last year it seemed to stay cold for weeks at a time.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
 My retirement plan....ssssshhhh don't tell my girls!


  1. We've had cold weather, but no real snow since Thanksgiving. I think we may get some this weekend, and I wouldn't mind. I like your retirement plan : ) Good luck with the weight loss plan.

  2. I'm with you on the chewy granola with chocolate :) And I love your retirement plan!


  3. I'll have to admit, a gas fireplace in the bedroom sounds nice...
    That's an interesting retirement plan you have there :)

  4. Oh I have ALWAYS wanted a fireplace in our bedroom. And now watching and listening to the fireplaces in the bedrooms on Downton Abby that desire has been greatly increased, lol. That retirement plan is hilarious and I think I am going to join the plan too, haha. Enjoy your day!

  5. A fireplace in the bedroom would be great!
    I am also working on losing a few pounds for our son's wedding in March, but that's coming right up! When is your daughter's wedding? Good luck!

  6. You can totally loose that weight before the wedding! :)
    I think PB & chocolate always makes granola better.

  7. Ah, a gas fireplace in the bedroom sounds wonderful! Good luck with the 20 pounds. Why is it so much easier to gain weight!

  8. Cathy...I have no doubt that you will reach your weight loss goal. Cheering you on every step of the way!

  9. The season with Scotty was a great one! I think he is such a nice boy :)
    How exciting that you have your daughter's wedding coming up.

  10. I remember Scotty McCreery, i didn't think he was actually gonna win. Its hard to really know because all the years i've watched idol my favorite didn't win. Enjoy your day!!

  11. I LOVE the Retirement Plan! And a fireplace in the bedroom would be ideal!

  12. You can sooo do 20 pounds! When is the wedding?

  13. Good luck on the weight loss and yes, you can do 20#! And, a gas fireplace in the bedroom would be nice and perhaps I should see about adding that to ours at our new house. It's probably too late but a nice thought! :o))
