Wednesday Hodgepodge ~ Summer

1. Summer's here-whoohoo! What's your favorite sight, sound, AND smell associated with summer? Hamburgers on the Grill... that is sight, sound... and smell... oooooh and then.... taste!!! Yum!

2. Fireflies or lightning bugs...what are they called in your neck of the woods? Lightning Bugs.. and we used to love to catch them, look at them, and then release them... my kiddos are getting to old for that now.

3. What is something from the past week that reminded you of your childhood? Sunday Mornings... piling in the car for church.

4. Define 'the good life'. I have God, Salvation, Family, Home, Health... If we just had Income coming in (only unemployment as of now... 15 months and counting)... I would be living "the good life".

5. Tell us what we'd see if you took a snapshot of your desk/work space? A mess!! LOL I have a corner desk with bookcases on both sides. On the left at the top are stuffed animals and photos of my family. Under that are three cubbies with paper, stapler, stickers, tape and other assorted things. Under that is a section where I have binders... this section is level with the desk area. In front of the binders I have little buckets with pens, pencils and markers in them. Under the desk on the left are books, homeschool catalogs, and a tub with extra desk supplies.

In the center of my desk I have my computer monitor and above that a shelf with my calendar on it.

On the right hand side on the top shelf is my laminator, a box of tissues, and our digital clock. Under that is a stack of cdroms for my computer (maps for our homeschooling, Print Shop, and some games... along with a couple of music cd's). Next to the tower of cdrom's is another cubbie with books: my devotional books, a binder with my to do lists and some journal pages, and books I am currently reading. In front of the books I have a stand with my laminated list of goals for the year. Under that is a short space where I keep my scanner. Under that is the desktop. Under the desktop on the right are some more binders and a dictionary. Under that is my computer's tower.

Here is a picture I did not fix the picture in any way or clean up my desk.

6. Peaches or watermelon...yes, you have to choose. Peaches... because I haven't had a good fresh peach yet. We had watermelon and it was delicious... the peaches we had were pithy and not sweet... still waiting for the first really good fresh peach of summer.

7. Ever been skinny dippin'? Is that too much for the Wednesday Hodgepodge? Rest assured we won't need details...unless of course you feel you must but remember, this is a family friendly blog so keep it G rated. Nope. 

But when I was younger I used to love diving in our backyard swimming pool, in my swim suit, in the evening, and swimming in the dark with only the tiki lights on. Very refreshing.

8. Insert your own random thought here. I love Eggo Fiber Plus Chocolate Chip Waffles... only 1 pt on WW for 2 of them, 9 grams of fiber, and then I use 1/8 cup of low cal syrup... yum!

I haven't tried the waffles but I love waffles in general so will look for them...pretty sure my homemade waffles are not WW friendly : )

Hope the job situation turns around for you soon! I'm sure that is really stressful. Take care.
