Wednesday Hodgepodge 30/9/15

Wednesday's Hodgepodge is brought to us courtesy of Joyce at 

Pop over there to see other posts and if you want to join in add your blog post to the Linky List at the end of Joyce's post.

Have fun!

1. Something on your October calendar that makes you smile?
My daughter’s wedding!  Enough said.
2. Food for the soul or music for the soul...which camp are you in? Tell us why?
Food – I’m miserable if I’m hungry and anything chocolate will always perk me up.  I can quite happily be on my own in a quiet house although I do listen to music sometimes.
3. What are two or three things you've learned recently as the result of an online search?  
Can’t remember all the specifics but definitely answers to crossword clues, e.g. I now know that a male castrated sheep is known as a wether.  Now aren’t you glad I played today? lol
4. Share your favorite game day recipe. You can describe it, post the how-to, or add a link to the actual recipe. 
I’m assuming by game day we’re talking about a football game or baseball game that you’d be watching at home.  We’re not big on watching sport at home and especially not with food.
5. What are your five essential steps for creating the perfect morning routine? 

  1. Having had a good night’s sleep the night before.
  2. Waking naturally before the alarm.
  3. A cup of tea in bed (hubby usually supplies that!)
  4. A good breakfast.
  5. None of last night’s mess left to clear up.

6. What small thing have you taken note of today?   
Umm how to cope with an online shop when it comes without bags? 
7. Sum up your September in seven words or less.
Satisfying, sunny (some of the time), enjoyable, tiring, family time, refreshing
8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Joyce always makes us think and I’m grateful for that.  As September draws to a close I’m actually looking forward to Christmas for the first time in years.  Mainly because my family are gradually all getting settled, I have plans for the house and I have time.  A precious commodity.


  1. I look forward to weaving the word wether into conversations, Thanks for the info!!!
    Enjoy your daughters wedding, that's exciting!

  2. Lol I think it could be confusing.

  3. I'm still stuck on the part of your hubby bringing you tea in bed. I'm going to have to send your link to my hubby. What an exciting month you have with your daughter's wedding. Enjoy every minute!

  4. LOL on your online search. I learned something new today because of it. :)

  5. We're all a little bit wiser today thanks to your on-line search :)
    Tea in bed? Your hubby sounds like "a keeper" :)
    An October wedding sounds lovely...

  6. You learn something new every week here in the Hodgepodge : ) A wedding! Best wishes to your daughter and her groom! Enjoy every minute : )

  7. A wether, huh? Amazing, the things one learns on the Hodgepodge!
    Enjoy the wedding. Hope it is beautiful weather (not to be confused with wether) for it!

  8. Enjoy the wedding my dear Hodgepodge buddy. :-)

  11. I love the part about your husband and the tea! That is so sweet! Hmm, maybe I can drop a few hints to my husband.... Congrats on the wedding!

  12. Thanks for your kind words re:the medicare scare. Yes, I had the Hodgepodge scheduled to post automatically at 5:30 a.m. No way I'm gonna be up that early voluntarily. Thanks for stopping by my blog page.
