Wednesday Hodgepodge

Something on your October calendar that makes you smile?

Florida. Florida. Florida. Florida. Florida. Florida. Florida. Florida. Florida. 9 glorious days of Florida starting October 4th.

Food for the soul or music for the soul ... which camp are you in? Tell us why.

If coffee counts as food then I would say food. Because, coffee.

What are two or three things you've learned recently as a result of an online search?

The proper winter care for newly transplanted hydrangea root balls/plants; which Tieks flats I want to splurge on with my Christmas money this year; and, the cat characters that are in the various Warriors series of books by Erin Hunter (for my 10 year old).

Share your favorite game day recipe. You can describe it, post the how-to, or add a link to the actual recipe.

Just plain old chili with hot dogs and/or frito chili pie. Just basic and simple.

What are your five essential steps for creating the perfect morning routine?

Wake up two hours before anyone else gets up; have my coffee brewed and waiting for me when I crawl out of bed; do my morning Bible study/devotional/journaling and then computer time; exercise; shower and get ready for the day.

What small thing have you taken note of today?

Sometimes a little extra sleep is more important than those five essential things above and more important than getting every single thing crossed off our planner.

Sum up your September in seven words or less.

Back to (home)school with a bang!

Insert your own random thought here.

Our weather is going to be sunny and in the 60's the rest of this week. I am almost going to be sad to leave this perfect weather and go south to the warmer temps in Florida .... almost.


  1. Well, I hope Florida has perfect weather for your break! Hope you can find some good coffee shops there. :-) So glad you mentioned Frito pie, because our son and his boys are coming out this weekend and it would be the perfect dinner for them.

  2. Have a wonderful time in Florida! I am like you and love the fall, but Florida is always a nice little getaway. Enjoy!

  3. If you find a good deal on Tieks, please share!!!! I'm on the hunt but refuse to pay full price. ;)


We all know that in this crazy world of homeschooling, we need all the (adult) support we can get. Please leave a comment if you so wish!
