Wednesday Hodgepodge

Good morning everyone.  Today we are back with another edition of Wednesday Hodgepodge.  Joyce over at From This Side of the Pond is back from Spring Break and ready for another link up.  So be sure to visit her page, copy the questions and join in on the fun.  We love meeting new people so lets spread the word, visit at least 3 people and let them know you were here.   There is no right or wrong answer, just getting to know you answers.

1. April 22nd is Earth Day. Are you inspired by nature? In what way?
----- Nature is always inspiring.  It reminds me that everyday is a fresh new start, nothing is impossible and all things will grow if given time.

2. Down to earth, four corners of the earth, move heaven and earth, not have an earthly chance, or salt of the earth...which earthly idiom have you most recently encountered? Explain.
----- Ok this is a tough one because I have been the majority of them recently.  I am always down to earth because of a tragic loss I can't afford not to be.  I would certainly go to the four corners of the earth to find what my family needs.  I have moved Heaven and Earth for my children several times when they were in trouble, depressed or just need help.  I know that I am and have been the salt of the earth to several people.  I will have to say that the "Not have an earthly chance" would go for me stop smoking and lose weight at the same time.  Nope it ain't gonna happen no matter how hard I wish, want or desire.  I just don't have that strength.

3. Share one piece of advice you might give a newly engaged couple.
----- My best advise would be to focus on each other and take into consideration people's advise but only act if it is in the best interest of your relationship.

4. When did you last engage someone to perform a job, task, service, home repair, or improvement? On a scale of 1-10 (ten being the best) how would you rate their work and/or your satisfaction with the job or service provided?
---- I would say a new girl at work.  I have given her the task of contacting all customers and getting Tax Exemption forms.  She made the comment that "I don't know why I am doing this, it isn't my job", I responded with "no it isn't but I do more then my job as well and I asked you to do this".  Over all I have been satisfied with her doing the work and will give her a 10 for getting them, however, in the attitude department I give her a big ole -0-.

5. When did you last find yourself engaged in small talk? Are you awkward or an expert or somewhere in between?
---- I am always engaged in small talk it seems.  Either with family, co-workers or prospects for my Avon Business that I work in addition to my full-time job.  I would consider myself a novice when it comes to creativity with marketing.

6.  What was the last historic place you visited?
---- Wow way to make me think there Joyce.  I am going to have to say that it was when my brother and Sister-in-law lived in Coshocton OH and we went to Roscoe Village.  It was a very neat little place to visit.  The whole village is historic.

7. The world would be a better place if we just__________________________.
-----  Brought back discipline, accountability and manners and stopped letting the Government tell us how to raise and discipline our children.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
-----  Lately I have been finding myself trying to get more creative, organized and decorative.  Needless to say I am none of these things.  I want so much to make a change in my life but it is hard when my husband is against any of it.  Before we got married I would have sticky notes everywhere to keep me from forgetting, nope he ain't having it.  I had photos all over the walls, no not overly so but clustered, nope he ain't having it either.  He says that our house is not a museum or a photo album.  Yeah we don't see eye to eye on alot of things that I want to do in regards to changing things up and getting creative when I do find something I like.  It drives me crazy.  But I love him and I can understand his idea of wanting to keep things simple and clean.  However, I find it depressing and cluttered.  I like variety when it comes to the house.  I look though several blogs and think...ohhhhh I want to do that and then realize I can't.

Anyway, I hope that you all enjoyed this edition of Wednesday Hodgepodge and will join in on the fun and meet new people.  After all isn't this whole blogging idea to meet new people, get inspired, and share your world with everyone?  Looking forward to meeting new friends, new ideas and new inspiration.  Now if someone would do a tutorial on how you make printable, the program they use (that is free) and their creative idea images I would be one happy camper.
