Hodgepodge, the Leftovers


1.  What's something blogging has taught you about yourself?
I am a better person if I have an outlet for the thoughts and ideas and such that float around in my brain.  Also, it's nice to know I'm not isolated in my bubble here, there are others who feel the same way I do about family, friends, and life.

2.  Leftovers...are you in the 'reheat and eat' camp or the 'put them in the fridge until they spoil and then toss them' camp? What's your favorite thing to have leftover? What can you not abide as a leftover?
We do eat our leftovers, but we also don't drag them out too far.  I love to make what I call leftover casserole: layer stuffing, turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy in a casserole dish and then bake til heated through.  It's really good, like a bowl of thanksgiving dinner all together.

3. 'Me time'...your thoughts?
'Me Time' for me consists of reading, taking a long hot soaking bath, a night out with the girls, a solo trip to the thrift stores, but mostly reading.  Time for me to just recharge and be a girl without all the guy stuff I'm constantly surrounded by.

4. When people come to you for help, what do they usually want help with?
They usually want someone to listen, not judge, be a sounding board.  I listen really well.

5. If your childhood had a smell what would it be? Tell us why.
The dusty smell of a windy, hot summer day.  We had a house outside of town and my parents planted lots of trees and I and my brother got the dubious pleasure of water those trees in the summer.  It was not a quick process.  I spent lots of time outside watering...

6. Insert your own random thought here.
This weekend we are hoping to get up to the mountains to go Christmas tree hunting.  It's one tag we are sure to fill. With the move next spring, we probably won't be able to do a tree hunt next year.  hunting on a lot is not early as challenging, or fun. But we will have hot chocolate, a tramp in the snow and end up with a lovely tree after our excursion this weekend.


  1. You know, sometimes browsing a store is good for me, because I'm normally the "get in and get out" type of person.

  2. Sounds like several of us help in the area of listening. I love your recollection of the smell of a hot summer day. Thanks for that memory!!

  3. Enjoyed your answers and what a blessing you are with your listening ear!
