Hodgepodge with Summer

Hello everyone and welcome back to another edition of the Wednesday Hodgepodge.  Be sure to link over to From this Other Sideof the Pond with Joyce and answer these questions.  Also please leave a comment or question below and I will get back with you.

We are all looking to meet and learn about new people that we may have something in common with.  Whether it is children, life experience, death, or anything else for that matter we are all looking to connect.  Please be sure to grab my button on the right and follow me as I make my way through life, love, happiness, sadness and ever other emotion or debate that this life is throwing at us.

1. June 23rd is National Pink Day. What's your favorite something pink?
    -- I didn't know this but my favorite pink is anything that has brown polka dots on it.  My late daughter Heather Loved Pink with Brown Polka Dots.  SO anything that I see with that scheme becomes my favorite because it reminds me of her.

2. What did you enjoy most about gym class when you were in school? How about the least?
  --My favorite part was jump rope and the least was doing cherry pickers.  Oh wow now I think I am telling my age.

3. What memory is brought to mind by the smell of roses?
  -- That is easy.  My momma, even though she didn’t particularly care for roses she always made sure that she had fresh roses from my rose bush on my kitchen table when I would come home from work.  They looked and felt like velvet in the front bush and the back bush was extremely floral smelling and multicolor roses.

4. Do you prefer to read or write?
  -- I would have to go with reading.  Considering that we have become so technology dependent that when we actually do write something our hands hurt. 

5. Sam Keen is quoted as saying, 'Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.' Would you agree? Is laziness ever respectable? How will you be lazy this summer?
  -- I wouldn’t say that lazy is really respectable however; being able to have downtime and be lazy can do wonders for the soul.  It gives you a chance to think and reflect on your life.  Where you have been, where you are going, what you have accomplished and the ability to just enjoy God’s creation around you.

6. The Florida Keys, Disney World, or a resort somewhere on the Gulf Coast...which Florida destination would you choose (and why) if the trip were today?
   -- Disney of course.  I am a big kid at heart.  I have gone to Disney 2 times with my husband and both times I have only gone to see the street parade.  Seriously how can you stand there and watch and not want to dance with them.

7. What question do you hate to answer?
 -- There really isn’t a question I can think of.  I am a pretty open book when it comes to my life.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
  --  Today I go to get fitted for my CPAP Machine.  I hope that I can find one that is comfortable enough to be able to sleep in it and not wake up everyone in the house.  I am not looking forward to forking out another $90 a month for the next 10 months on a piece of equipment.  I know that this is necessary for me to become healthier and live longer.  The design however is something to be desired.  I wish we could just find a piece of equipment that can be attached to our air condition unit and not be worn.  I am a side sleeper and I know that this will make that more difficult.  I also am not looking forward to having a piece of tubing around my neck at night while I sleep or above my head. 
      I honestly wouldn’t mind having a bed that inclined because then I could sleep with this thing and not worry about it.  I guess the anxiety of feeling like I am being choked in my sleep is more scary to me than the actual machine but it has to be done.

Please leave a comment below and let me know you were here.  We are all waiting to meet new people so why not be the one I meet today.  Have a great day and an amazing rest of the week.
