HodgePodge Time

1. What's surprised you most about your life or life in general?
 The unexpected twists and turns it can take. Just when you think you've got it all figured out, things go sideways and you have to figure it out all over again.

2.  Sweet potato fries, sweet potato casserole, a baked sweet potato, a bowl of butternut squash soup, a caramel apple or a slice of pumpkin have to order one thing on this list right now. Which one do you go for?
A baked sweet potato with butter and salt.  Although the sweet potato fries are good with ranch.

3. What's a famous book set in your home state? Have you read it? On a scale of 1-5 (5 is fantastic) how many stars does it rate?
There are several westerns set in Wyoming, the most famous one would have to be  The Virginian by Owen Wister.  The small town of Medicine Bow is just 60 miles west of Laramie where I currently live.  We drive past The Virginian Hotel every time we pass through Medicine Bow.  I have never read The Virginian, but my mother did and she quite liked it.

4. There are 60 days until Christmas...have you started your shopping? How do you stay organized for the holidays? 
I have done some shopping, but will save most for after Thanksgiving.  Nick, of course, will wait until the last minute. Lists are my friend for keeping track of holiday to do stuff.

5. October 26th is National Tennessee Day. Have you ever lived or spent any time in Tennessee? Is this a state you'd like to visit one day? The top rated tourist attractions in Tennessee are-

The Great Smoky Mountain National Park (Gatlinburg area), Elvis's Graceland (Memphis), Birth of the Music Biz (Memphis and Nashville), Dollywood (Pigeon Forge), Tennessee's Military Heritage (many battlefields), The Hermitage (Andrew Jackson's home), The Parthenon (Nashville), Oak Ridge American Museum of Science and Energy, Chattanooga and the Tennessee Valley Railroad, Downtown Knoxville, Lookout Mountain, The Titanic Museum (Pigeon Forge), The Museum of Appalachia (Clinton), and The Lost Sea Adventure (Sweetwater)

How many on this list have you seen? Which one on the list would you most like to see?
I have not been to Tennessee, but I have a friend who wants to go to the Grand Ol' Opry so I might get there some day soon.

6.  Insert your own random thought here.
 Sometimes it feels as if we are taking two steps forward and then four steps back.  Nick has bronchitis and last night took a tumble down the stairs.  He's really not feeling well.  My old friend insomnia came to visit last night as well. This afternoon is the beginning of parent teacher conferences, they finish up tomorrow morning. Have I mentioned I hate parent teacher conferences. Yeah, not really feeling the mojo today, but I am trying.
On a lighter note, I got kitty snuggles this morning, right up in my face kitty snuggles, but still, kitty snuggles.

  1. Oh so sorry about Nick's tumble down the stairs and his bronchitis. I was so NOT a fan of parent teacher conferences either on both sides of the desk! Hope things start looking up at your place soon!
