Hodgepodge Wednesday

It's my first time to play along with Hodgepodge Wednesday! If you want to join in, visit From this side of the Pond.

1. Since you weren't Hodgepodging last Wednesday, how did you pass the time? Last Wednesday I visit our local Farmer's Market while listening to marathon conference calls. ick.

2. What's the first word that comes to mind when I say marriage? Yes, one word. WORK.

3. Summer officially arrives in the Northern hemishpere later this week. Does it feel like summer where you live? Describe your idea of the perfect summer day. Um...yes. Dripping Springs, TX is hot and humid! I just moved here after 14 years in Phoenix (where it is already 110) so this is a nice change. I have missed the humidity. Yes, I said it! I'm born and raised in Alabama so I love me some muggy weather. Now, ask me that in late August and I might have a different tune.

4. "Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability."(Sam Keen) Is laziness ever respectable? Do you have a lazy summer planned, or something semi-ambitious? I sometimes enjoy lazy! We plan to have lot's of summer adventures with our kids, which started last week with this.

We have a big Orlando trip in August that we are all looking forward to!

5. Past or present, who's your favorite television dad? Why is he a favorite? Is he anything like your own dad? Ken's dad from My Friend Flicka. He was a cowboy! I wanted to live on a ranch and ride my horse all day (I always had horses growing up). My dad was awesome, but he wasn't a cowboy!

6. June 18th is International Picnic Day...share a favorite picnic memory. My Honey and I had a pcini on the beach in Kauai in 2012. It was romantic and wonderful! We drank wine from red Solo cups and watched the sun set. It was beautiful.

7. The travel site Trip Advisor lists the top five islands in the world for 2014 as- Ambergris Caye in Belize CayesProvidenciales in Turks and CaicosBora Bora in French Polynesia, Marco Island Florida, and Lewis and Harris in The Outer Hebrides (Scotland). Have you been to any of these? Of those listed (and if price were not a factor) which would you most like to book for a holiday? Bora Bora!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.The Goodwill store can be amazing and awful all at the same time.

Aw, My Friend Flicka! I had forgotten all about that. I loved shows like that and Fury and Sky King. If there was a plane or a dog or horse involved, I didn't pay much attention to the people. :-)

I agree, marriage can be WORK!
