Wednesday Hodgepodge

I'm joining up again this week with the Wednesday Hodgepdoge. Head on over to Joyce's blog by clicking on the button below and join in.

1. American Idol is back for a 14th season. Are you watching? Have you ever watched? If you were to audition for the show (or were made to audition), what song would you sing?
Nope, not watching this season. I don't think I have ever watched a whole season. I have only caught a few shows here and there. For some reason it has never held my interest. The first song that popped into my mind that I would sing for an audition (if I had to) was "Where is Love"  from the musical "Oliver".  I sang "Where is Love" when I was in high school to audition for the Swing Choir my junior and senior year. I made it both years, so reviving that song would make sense, of course.

2.  Mark Twain is quoted as saying, "If it's your job to eat a frog, it's best to do it first thing in the morning. And if it's your job to eat two frogs, it's best to eat the biggest one first." So when did you last have to 'eat a frog'? Or two? How'd that work out? 
Less than a week after moving to South Carolina, Hubby and I went to an evening Community Bible Study together. We have never stepped out to do something like that so quickly after a move. Kinda a Big Frog step for us. We'll continue to go for the rest of the semester and hope to meet people through that. (And study God's Word, of course.)
3. If you were going on safari, what is the number one animal you'd want to see?
I know my hubby would say he would want to see a cheetah. He's a runner and he loves the speed and sleekness of cheetahs. I think I would like to see a hippopotamus. Funky animals.
4. January 21st is National Granola Bar Day. I know. Do you like granola bars? Chewy or crunchy? Your favorite flavor? How about regular granola? Let's exhaust this topic in honor of the holiday okay?

I love Granola. I could take or leave Granola Bars. (I know that's not very exhaustive, but that's all I got.)

5. If only...  the decision of which house to buy would come more easily.  There are currently four houses we kind of like, but there are significant pros and cons about each one. We go this afternoon to look at them for a second time armed with a spread-sheet/check-list.

6. You can add one item to your bedroom. What will it be? Keep it family friendly please.
A comfy sitting area for reading. That's one thing on our check-list as we look for a new house.
7. What is one thing you've enjoyed about winter thus far? If it's not winter in your corner of the globe, what season is it, and what is something you've enjoyed about whatever season it happens to be?
What have I enjoyed about this winter? I have enjoyed that we got to move away from Minnesota before really severe winter hit there. "Winter" in South Carolina is so much more tolerable! I've been wandering around the apartment this week with no socks on my feet. I've also been outside with no coat or jacket. Love it!

8.  Insert your own random thought here. 
I've been missing this goofy family of mine like crazy this week. Monday morning I was thinking that I would call my kids Tuesday. Who do I get a call and a text from that evening? My kids! So good to talk with them.


  1. I have only one kiddo, and she's the reason I'm not there in SC with you ... although truth be told, we wouldn't be very close to you, but we'd be somewhere on the beach. ;-)

  2. I'd love to know what area you're looking in : ) I hope the Community Bible Study works out for you!

  3. Where did you just move to in SC? I live in the state, in Pawleys Island - south of MB and north of Charleston. I love SC living!! I've been here full-time for 8 years. It's such a beautiful state!

  4. You have one great looking family! My MIL lives in South Carolina and my hubby grew up there...graduated from The Citadel in Charleston. You're going to love it there!

  5. Sounds like you're going about house hunting very methodically. You'll find just the right one.

  6. What a nice looking family! I'm not sure if i've stopped by your blog before.
    It's hard to watch a entire season of Idol. I don't know how my aunt does it. The auditions are annoying and they always voted off my favorite or my favorite didn't win.

    Have a great day!
