This week's theme for Wednesday Hodgepodge is all about Fall! It is most definitely my favorite season!
It's fall, Y'all. My favorite season of the year! What's something you love to do this time of year that makes you feel it's officially fall? And unrelated to that, do you ever say "ya'll"?I burn those pumpkin spice candles and make lots of pumpkin muffins, breads and cookies. I also break out the boots. I love to wear boots!! We aren't big "ya'll" speakers here in Missouri, but I do catch myself saying it every once in a while. Must be all those years of living in Oklahoma.
When did you last have a "falling out" with someone? Has it been resolved?In 2009 I had a falling out with my best friend in Oklahoma. I felt betrayed by her during one of the most difficult times of my life. We parted ways. I ran into her a year or so later and she wanted to pick back up with our friendship. But I just didn't think our friendship could ever be the same. I just knew I could never trust her again. We haven't talked since that conversation.
A song you love with the word 'fall' in its title.
I love the song "Falling Slowly", especially the version sung by Kris Allen from American Idol. It gives me chills.
What's something you've recently let 'fall by the wayside'?
Definitely exercise. I am having the hardest time getting up any earlier than I already do. And we are so busy in the evenings that we don't get any exercise done then, either. And, if I don't have anything to do on some evening, all I want to do is relax. My body is feeling it, too.
When did you last attend an event, read a book, watch a movie, try a new recipe, or visit a shop-town-tourist attraction that fell short of your expectations? In what way?
This happens to me most often when reading books. I will hear several people say how great a book is and then when I read it I just feel let down. That recently happened with the book If I Stay by Gayle Foreman. And then Dawson and Taylar went to see it at the movies and said it was so horrible they almost left about 30 minutes into the movie.
