Wednesday Hodgepodge!


Happy Wednesday Friends! Time for another Wednesday Hodgepodge with Joyce from over at From This Side of the Pond ....this is always such a fun linkup.. join in anytime! Hope you enjoy. 
             

1.  What's something you wanted to do this summer that you never got around to actually doing?

Gosh..lots and lots of things. I really wanted to do some garage shopping but that never happened once. But I guess that would require me getting up a lot eairler. :) I also wanted to make a bunch of batches of ice cream but that also missed the cut. o-well...I can handle waiting until later to do both of those things. 

2. Share a favorite memory of your own back -to-school days as a child.

I don't know if this is a favorite but its certainly I remember well.  Before the 3rd grade school year started my family took me out to do our school shopping. I found this amazing purple backpack and ended up leaving it at the school that day. I got home and I was so uttery upset that I couldn't stop crying.It had all my new stuff in it and being I am a organized type of person, it totally shook me to the core not to have it. Thankfully after about an hour in the bathroom and a lot of tears, my grandfather called up Father John to let us back in so I could get it. I now understand it has something to do with my type A personality but it was a very hard for me to deal with. I look back now and see how silly that sounds. 

3.  What's one chore or daily task you prefer doing 'old-school' ?

Another great question this week because it really made me think. I seriously couldn't think of one thing I clean old school. Old school is old....and there have been so many things that have came along since I was little like auto cleaning kitty boxes, swifter wet jets, and magic erasers My laundry is not done old school either and neither are my dishes. But the two...not one things I do old school is vacuuming and washing windows! Both of those are done the good old way that my grandmother taught me. 

4.  Share something you've learned in life through the 'school of hard knocks'.

This one is so important → Say it forget it, write and regret it. - So many people now days post so much stuff online and never consider the consequences. We all see this type of thing on the news with twitter. Once its out.. its out there for good. And young people will never learn that until it comes back and bites them in the ass. 

Next Important thing I have learned is 
People might forget what you did or what you said. They might even forget why they got upset at you in the first place but the one thing they will NEVER forget is how you made them feel. 

5.  As a child, did you mostly bring or buy your lunch for school? What was your favorite thing to find in your lunchbox?

I went to a private school for a lot of my education and I must say we had pretty amazing lunches. Everything was fresh and made by all the school moms. I have to admit, I think the private school system is better in so many ways, lunch included. I didn't take a lunch often because the food was so good but when I did I felt extra special with just a small simple note from my family....and chocolate always made me smile too.

6. Football season is upon us which has me wondering... how big of a sports fan are you (not just football) ? On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being 'I scream at the players through my television screen' and 1 being 'is knitting a sport?' where do you fall in fandom?

I would be a 3 at the most. I am just not athetic at all. I have 0 interest in sports and in our home, they are rarely on except during my husbands beloved basketball season. 

7. Share a favorite quote you think might inspire students of all ages at the start of a new school year


I hope you all have a beautiful and blessed Wednesday!
