Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Share a winter memory from your childhood. I remember laying in the snow, and making snow angels. I loved it, when my momma made snow cream, yummy.
2. What was on your blog this time last year?  If you weren't blogging, what in the world were you doing with all that free time? I was not blogging, was recovering from my triple bypass heart surgery.

3. Ellen Goodman is quoted as saying, 'We spend January 1 walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives...not looking for flaws, but for potential.' 

Do you see more flaws, or more potential, in your life, at the start of a new year? Have you done anything specific this month, to address either one? Does the new year, truly begin for you on January 1, or is there some other month of the year, that feels like a fresh start, and new beginning? At the start of a new year, I usually see more flaws in my life. I had plans to address some flaws, but then got sick with a bad cold, and had a very bad fall. January 1 does seem like a fresh start, also my birthday always seems like a great fresh start to me.

4. Who's an athlete you admire, or respect, and why? Tim Tebow, he is never ashamed to show his faith.

5. Do you like cream in your coffee? Whipped cream on your pumpkin pie? Cream cheese on a bagel? Sour cream on a baked potato? Cream of wheat for breakfast? Have you ever had a scone, with clotted cream? Of all the creamy foods mentioned, which one sounds most appealing to you, right this very minute? Do not drink coffee, do not like pumpkin pie, I do like cream cheese on bagels, love sour cream on a baked potato,do not like cream of wheat, never had a scone. Right this minute, would enjoy a baked potato with sour cream.

6. Where were you last kept waiting, for 'hours on end'? Or for what felt, like hours on end? How well did you cope? In line at Walmart, only one line was open in the store. I dealt with it fine, am very use to it.

7. Believe it or not, when next week's Hodgepodge rolls around, it will be February. Huh?!? Bid adieu here, to January, in seven words, or less. Kiss January good-bye, hug Febuary hello.

8.  Insert your own random thought here. I fought the floor, and the floor won!!

YOU poor baby, life has dealt you several blows but you are definitely an overcomer... God bless your February!!!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

You rock Denise!!! That's why we love you.

Theresa said...

You have a lot of patience to wait in line with only one register open. I'd probably be asking for a manager ;) Glad you weren't seriously hurt from that fall.

Bob Bushell said...

Lovely, but, a hard time you have.

Inger said...

Oh, Denise, the floor always wins. I so hope that 2016 will be a very good year for your, your health and all the rest in your life.

Terra Hangen said...

Have a fabulous February Denise.

Paula Kaye said...

I loved your seven words! I still make snow ice cream. It's the best!! Hope you heal soon

Melissa Hatcher said...

Healing prayers for you. I had snow ice cream for the first time last winter. It was awesome! Have a super awesome week.

Lea said...

Ouch, hope you heal quickly and without a lot of pain. Falls are so scary!

Nel said...

Bless your heart the floor did win! Snow Ice Cream, ohhh my momma used to make that also! Thanks for stopping by! Hope you heal quickly!

Linda said...

Dearest Denise, I echo Hootin' Anni's comment. Love you. :)

Christine said...

I haven't thought about snow cream in years! My mom's husband would make it sometimes when we were kids. So good!
And Ouch! That looks like a bad fall! I'm glad at least no bones were broken!
Seems like Wal-Marts all across the country have trouble getting people checked out in a timely fashion. :)

Barbara said...

At least you hung onto your sense of humor when you fell. Hope you feel better very soon!

Celestina Marie said...

Get well wishes Denise. Hope you heal soon and feel better. Blessings to you! xo

I remembered having the best years of my life during my childhood - carefree, spontaneous, courageous but my mother and grandmother were always after me :)

Cathy said...

Oh my! Hope you are recovering from that fall.

Jessy Skehan said...

Oh, my goodness! That floor was tough on you! Feel better! And Walmart..those lines! You'd think with all those registers they would have more open! It seems like the wait is the same everywhere. I spend more time in line than I do shopping!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I forgot all about snow angels, I loved making them!

Wendy said...

Oh dear that was a nasty fall. I hope you're making a good recovery.

LeAnn said...

You do come up with somethings to think about. I do like the New Year to start on some goals. Another time of year that I like to start a new is September. I like a lot of the things you do as far as food goes. I am an oatmeal cereal type of girl and once in a while Cream of Wheat.
I enjoyed your thought and I like to ponder some of it. Prayers and hugs for you.

So sorry about your fall! I tripped over my dog earlier in the week and hurt my left leg. It stopped me from running but not from walking, thankfully! Take care!
