Hodge Podge Questions - Volume 206

1. When did someone last suggest you 'chill out'? Or, when did you last tell someone (or want to tell someone) to 'chill out'? Or, when did you last tell yourself to 'chill out'?

This past Saturday, to one of my 4-H kids - running around

2. What most recently caused your heart to melt? 

A dream I had about my old dog that died

3.  "An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered." G.K. Chesterton  

Your thoughts? When did you last experience either an adventure or an inconvenience? How did you see it at first, as an adventure or an inconvenience?  Does it feel the same in hindsight?

A cross-country ski adventure where I fell on the blacktop.  I thought it would be an adventure turned into an inconvenience because my tailbone hurts 3 days later.

4.  A Wendy's Frosty, root beer in a frosty mug, or a frosted chocolate cupcake...of these three, which one is your favorite 'frosty' treat?

A root beer in a frosty mug

5. Would you say your life so far this year has been more like a circus or a symphony? Explain why.

I would say symphony.  We have become empty nesters and have been making some sweet "music" - (smile)

6. Since it's a 'snow day' here, what's your favorite song containing the word 'white'?

White Christmas

7. If you had to leave the city you currently live in, what would you find the hardest to leave behind?

Peace and quiet (rural/farm life)


8. Insert your own random thought here.

I have been seeing lots of hawks lately.  One even landed on our bird feeder.




Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.

I am a fan of Hawks in the wild. We have one I call mine : ) He spends a lot of time in our backyard treetops, and occasionally dives into our wild hillside for a 'snack'. I love watching him fly-so majestic!

Hi Jacky! Love the photo of the hawk! I just don't want them anywhere near my property because they love chicken! Nice thought provoking questions! My answer to question 7 would be family. They all live here! Blessings from Bama!

I'm your news follwer! My hubby and I are recent empty-nesters, too. I find it strange right now, but we always enjoy our time together. Great shot of the hawk!
