Wednesday Hodgepodge!

Wednesday, January 28, 2015


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 that I love doing. Hope you enjoy.


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'?

I told Jackson to chill out and calm down last night over his xbox. He got a D on his report card so through the week he is not allowed to be on it. And he's not happy about it. I tend to worry a lot more than I should I so I am always telling myself to chill out. 

2. What most recently caused your heart to melt? 

Noticing how tall Jackson is compared to the sink just made my heart melt. I didn't notice and the other night he went up to the sink to put his glass in it and looked much taller. It reminded me of how fast time flys. 

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?


I don't think an inconvenience is always an adventure. Nope. However, there are times when I get lost around our town that is a bit of a inconvenience that does somehow turn into a fun adventure. 

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?

That's an easy one:




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

Oh gosh.. it would have to be a circus by far!!! I don't know.. I guess I have had to learn a lot of lessons along the way and it was hard. I think when you don't listen to the subtle messages from God he just keeps getting louder until you get it. The older I get, the smarter I feel. So while things were a circus through the years as I get older, its turning more into a symphony. 

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


White Shadows - Coldplay -




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


Nothing. I am not that attached to this house, neighborhood or city. I would miss the mountains most but I don't think that would be enough to hold me. Idk. I don't really mind it here. The weather is pretty good, the mountains and ocean being pretty close together is nice but I don't really feel like the house we are in is where I want to stay. I do like a couple of our neighbors but still.. I am just not sure I am here for a long time. We'll just have to see where time takes us. 



8. Insert your own random thought here

Tonight we are going as a family to see the circus. I know its not politically correct and I know some of the stories in the news of things that have happened to the animals but I am going to go anyway. I am going to go with an open mind that maybe the money we spend tonight will go to feed and care for the animals. I haven't been since I was a little girl and I don't really have any memories of it. My kids have never been so this will probably be the first and last time the Jaggers heads to the circus. But it's kinda the same as the zoos and Seaworld. We go hoping to see the animals we love and hope that the money spent goes towards their care. Even though their is a lot of stigma associated with the circus, I am still excited to be going. I think it's going to be a wonderful night of family fun. I hope you guys are all staying warm in the north eastern states. I feel so bad for the flooding and damage that so many people are facing. We lift you in our prayers.
