Wednesday Hodgepodge All About the Fall

Hello everyone and welcomed to another edition of Wednesday Hodgepodge from Joyce @ From this side of the pond.  Today she is talking about Fall which is only fitting considering yesterday was the first day of fall.  So join in and don't forget to leave some blog lovin.  I would love to see how you are and what your responses are.  SO leave a message with your website and I will be sure to hope over and say hi.

1. Elizabeth Lawrence is quoted as saying, 'Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn." So have you done just that? And what did you leave undone in order to do so?

--- I have certainly done that a lot lately.  I love fall and watching all the colors turn.  It is so pretty and makes the world seem new again.  I have seriously left laundry undone which is hard for me.  I have a routine of doing it on Wednesday and Saturdays but got behind.

2. Since we're talking turning...what's one thing you feel you're doing 'every time you turn around'?

--- Constantly paying bills.  I mean seriously I have them stretched out during the month but it seems as soon as I get one paid it is time to pay it again.  It is a vicious cycle that I wish would end.  Then again, don’t we all wish it would end with the bills?

3. How hard is it for you to 'turn the other cheek?'

--- It isn’t hard for me at all.  I truly believe in Karma and trust me when I say I don’t want to get hit by the Karma bus.  I want to be a passenger on it for sure but not the intended target.

4. When did you last turn a drawer, your car, a room, or your entire house upside down looking for something? Did you find it?

--- oh oh oh I know this one…lol.  It was certainly my car.  Unfortunately it is just like my purse.  Total disorganization and has everything in it.  I was looking for this particular product that I had bought:


Leave in treatment for damaged hair, split ends and hair breakage for all types of distressed hair. Its enhanced formula repairs, strengthens and protects hair shine. Extreme Anti-Snap distressed hair treatment is an award winning product and one of Redken's best sellers.
Because my hair seems to always be frizzy and tangled.  I hate getting out of the shower and look like there is a rats nest in my hair.
****I am in Love with this product just so you know.  My hair looks and feels amazing.****

5. 'One good turn deserves another'...were you most recently on the giving or receiving end of that sentiment?

--- I am always trying to do something good for someone.  I was taught that you always do for others because you never know when you will need something done for you.  Yes actually I was.  I had a meeting last Saturday at Krispy Kreme and I went up to get a cup of coffee and when I handed the lady the money she told me to have a blessed day.  I think it is because she knew I was caring for my grandbaby while trying to further my AVON business.  But I like to think that she was raised like I was and you should always do something good for someone.

6. Red, yellow, and orange are the colors of fall. Also the colors of fruit. If you were permitted only one color of fruit in your diet, which would you choose? This question isn't as easy as it sounds, at least not for me.

--- Nice choices there Joyce…lol.  But I would have to say yellow.  The reason I choose yellow is because of bananas.  You can fix them in bread, you can use them in salads, they are a great source of potassium which we all need and they are sweet.

The Hunt for Red October, October Sky, Halloween...which 'October' film is your favorite?

---- Well I don’t like scary movies so it sure isn’t Halloween.  As for the other two I would have to go with The Hunt for Red October for the simple fact that I love Sean Connery.  I don’t care who you are that man is sexy.  As for the October Sky, well honestly, I have never seen it.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

--- Wow what a weekend and week it has been.  Saturday like I said earlier I had an AVON meeting that I had to take my grandbaby on because my daughter had to work.  Then Sunday was pretty busy because I signed up 2 brand new AVON representatives and then did deliveries.  Then Monday from Hell rolled around.  My daughter had to work until 2 and when I picked her up she wasn’t feeling all that well.  So I took her home and dropped her off and when I got home with the baby at 6 my daughter got up and was sick as a dog.

I ended up taking both her and the baby to the E.R. Monday night and she was diagnosed with the flu.  They admitted her and sent the baby home with me.  He has congestion and they are treating him as if he has the flu as a precaution since mommy has it.  So my oldest baby is still in the hospital and not sure when she is getting out and the baby is home with me. 

Daycare called and said that the baby was running a fever of 100.1 and wanted me to bring some Tylenol to them.  So I did and when I got there I found out that they took his temperature under his arm which meant it wasn’t a correct reading.  I got there and he was just smiling and cooing at me and didn’t feel hot at all.

Now I am back at work playing catch up from being out on Tuesday because the baby couldn’t go to daycare for 24 hrs and we have girl that left this week and won’t have a replacement until Monday next week.

Then I got the flu shoot today which I didn’t want to get but figured since my daughter is already sick and I am taking care of the baby the last thing we need is for me to get the flu. 

Plus I am fighting with myself over if I should leave my son who is 20 at home by himself for Thanksgiving while the rest of us go to my sister-in-laws and brothers house.  I asked him to take off work but someone else already requested it.  However, we are having Thanksgiving on the 16th at the in-laws so at least he can share it with us there.
