Wednesday Hodgepodge – 05.04.16


for Wednesday Hodgepodge @ From This Side of the Pond

1. What’s something fun you’re looking forward to on your May calendar?

Fun? hmmm… I guess just writing. I don’t have any social eventss scheduled for the month of May, unless friends decide to stop over for a visit.

2. What are some images that come to mind when you hear the word mother?

Unfortunately, very few good images come to mind. Abandonment, favoritism, an unstable mind – my mother was a great cook, so I usually associate food with her.

3. What’s something beautiful you own or have seen that’s made of glass?

I have a beautiful set of hand-blown glass goblets that I bought at a craft market in OK years ago.

4. Was today typical? If not what made it unusual?

As typical as it can be. I stayed up all night, slept late into the afternoon, and am now up doing some writing projects – that’s pretty typical of my day.

5. What is a quality you wish you could have more of?


6. What’s the next major purchase you need to make? Will it happen in the month of May?

I don’t really do major purchases anymore. My life is pretty simplistic. My money is spent on the few bills I owe, groceries, vitamins, and an occasional book.

7. What responsibility/job/work did you dislike while growing up but has proved helpful to you as an adult?

Gardening. While I never really minded helping in the garden, I did find it exhausting and tedious. Now I enjoy the simple pleasures of getting my fingers into the soil and weeding the garden. Gives me time to reflect on life.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I have the theme to Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood stuck in my head for some reason. I haven’t heard it for years, so no idea where it came from.

    • Hmmm.. possibly? Here are the words:

      It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood,
      A beautiful day for a neighbor,
      Would you be mine?
      Could you be mine?

      It’s a neighborly day in this beautywood,
      A neighborly day for a beauty,
      Would you be mine?
      Could you be mine?

      I have always wanted to have a neighbor just like you,
      I’ve always wanted to live in a neighborhood with you.

      So let’s make the most of this beautiful day,
      Since we’re together, we might as well say,
      Would you be mine?
      Could you be mine?
      Won’t you be my neighbor?

      Won’t you please,
      Won’t you please,
      Please won’t you be my neighbor?

What's on your mind? Let me know!
