♥♥♥♥Wednesday Hodgepodge♥♥♥♥

Hello and welcome back to another edition of Wednesday Hodgepodge with Joyce over at From This Side of the Pond.  Today we are talking about the pretty color of Pink.  It is fitting considering this is the month of Love.  So please join us as we share our thoughts and answer another great edition of questions.  Be sure to link up to Joyce’s Blog after you have answered your questions and don’t forget to visit other bloggers and get to know some new people.  You never know who you might find you have a connection with.

1. Do you wear your heart on your sleeve, or keep your emotions tucked in tight?

---- I wear my heart on my sleeve for the most part.  When the time calls for it I can certainly tuck it away like no other.

2. How did you meet your closest friend?

---- My brother.  She is my sister-in-law Mrs. Kisha Jaggers over at

3.  Pink lemonade, grilled salmon, cotton candy, pink grapefruit, a strawberry milkshake, or raspberry sorbet...of the pink foods listed, which one is your favorite? Least favorite? Which one have you most recently consumed?

---- Pink lemonade.  There is nothing better to quench a thirst on a hot summer day. 

---- Lease favorite is grilled salmon.  I don’t know why but I have tried it in restaurants, I have tried it baked and I have tried it when someone else cooked it and it just makes me hurl.

---- Honestly haven’t consumed any of these lately. 

4. When were you last 'tickled pink' over something? Explain.

---- Weigh in at the YMCA yesterday.  I dropped another 2.2 lbs this week and I am so excited because I haven’t been under 220 in a long time.

5. Are you a fan of television talk shows? Daytime, nighttime, or both? What's your favorite?

----Not so much anymore.  I used to watch The View at work on my last job but anymore by the time I get home they are all over.  I don’t stay up late enough to watch any of the nighttime ones.

6. When was the last time you wanted to ask a question, but felt too foolish to do so?

---- I can’t think of a time that I didn’t ask a question.  I mean after all how do you learn if you don’t ask.  If I think it is a foolish question I will start it off with, “don’t think I’m dumb, I am just dead in the head at the moment” and usually I get a laugh.

7. My favorite __________________right now is _________________.

---- My favorite salad dressing right now is Balsamic Vinagerette  and the song Uptown Funk by Bruno Mars.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

---- I got a call Saturday from my sister telling me that my niece passed away.  She was 31 yrs old, 31 days old and died on the 31st.  She has been trapped so long in her body due to Cerebral Palsy and now she is free.  My heart breaks for my sister, her husband and other children.  I know all to well what she is going through. 
  I didn’t know my niece very well for we live over 3 hrs apart and have been estranged most of my life.  I am however going to go to the funeral and I am leaving for the drive right after work on Thursday.  I promised her I would be there even though we aren’t close I still know her pain and want to be there to help comfort her in her time of need.

   I know that she is a strong woman, I mean she has to be to have taken care of her daughter all her life even though her daughter couldn’t verbally communicate with her, couldn’t do the things that we all take for granted like walking, eating, playing catch or dressing ourselves.  I do know that she is free and perfect in Heaven and is at ease.  This doesn’t ease the pain by any stretch of the imagination but at least my sister knows that her daughter is in Heaven.

Thanks for stopping by and joining me on Wednesday Hodgepodge.  Don’t forget to leave a comment and visit many bloggers after you’re done.  We all love getting comments and meeting new people.
