1. If you could sit beside and/or jump in any lake in the whole
wide world today, which lake would you choose and why?
Lake Lure in North Carolina, a man-made lake. We used to share an old house
there with four other families and our kids "grew up" there in the summers.
So many happy memories.
2. What's your favorite 'fruity' drink?
Blueberry iced tea.
3. I read a list here of thirteen things to do right now to simplify your life.
clean as you go, re-evaluate your relationships (cut toxic ties), unsubscribe (too many blogs and websites), de-clutter, write down your daily goals, reply to emails right away, forget multi-tasking, create a morning routine, re-evaluate your commitments (which hobbies and respon-sibilities are most important to you), say no, clean up your computer, and plan your day ahead
Which of the tasks listed do you currently find most helpful in keeping life simple? Which item on the list should you adopt in order to simplify your life this month?
I try to clean as I go, still learning to say no, but not nearly as hard as it used to be. Cleaning up my computer and clearing out websites and blogs is on my list just as is cleaning out closets and getting rid of things. Jotting a list of things to do for the
next day makes for fun checking off the next day and giving me a sense
(true or false) of accomplishing things!
4. What did you do the summer after you graduated from high school?
Continued working in a nursing home. Lots of good experience for when I studied nursing.
5. Are you a fan of podcasts? If so what's a favorite?
Not into them much, but listen to The World and Everything In It
each morning if I remember.
6. Do you think today's fathers have it harder, easier, or just different than fathers in the past?
Probably the same though the challenges may be different.
Dads are certainly more involved in caring
for babies and house hold tasks than my father's generation was.
7. Tell us one way you're like your father?
Or not at all like your father if that's easier?
I am almost a clone of my mother, but my sister often says, "You sound just like Dad."
I do have some of his traits including love of history,
family history and being sentimental.
He also introduced me to Jesus.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
This is my first hodgepodge. I've always enjoyed reading others,
and this is one where I had some answers,
so thought I'd give it a try!
Joining in Hodge Podge Wednesday.
