Wednesday Hodgepodge



'Slow and steady wins the race' ... Tell us about a time this was true in your own life.

A healthy lifestyle is definitely something that I believe should be done slowly and steadily so that our ways become life-changing instead of a quick, temporary fix. This is something I am working so hard to teach my children and to work out in my own life.

'As slow as molasses' ... Do you like molasses? How about maple syrup? Caramel? Butterscotch? What's your favorite of the slow moving treats mentioned here, and what's your favorite food made with that sweet treat?

Molasses? Yes. Maple syrup? Not really. Caramel? Yes. Butterscotch? Yes. Caramel is a favorite overall, but I absolutely love molasses cookies.

Your favorite slow song?

Soul Provider by Michael Bolton



Your favorite thing to make in a slow cooker or crock pot?

Beef stroganoff.

'You may delay, but time will not.' ~ Benjamin Franklin. Are you more a hurrier or a delayer when it comes to unpleasant tasks that need doing? What are you currently either delaying or hurrying to get through this week or month?

Totally a delayer, every single time. I put everything off to the last second, and I work best under pressure. I have several things I am wanting to do, but until I feel pressured into doing it, I probably won't .... power wash my house, clean out my hall closet, clean up and purge the remainder of the basement, make Dawson's bedroom into an inviting guest bedroom. There is more, I assure you, but these are very pressing.

Tell us three things you encounter regularly or even just occasionally that you find to be annoyingly slow.

Traffic, my coffee pot when I forget to set my timer before I go to bed, anything and everything when I am in a hurry (see previous question about me being a delayer).

March is National Craft Month. Are you crafty? Tell us something crafty you'll try in the next thirty-one days. Or something crafty you'd like to try or wish you had the skill to make happen.

I would say I'm pretty crafty. I would like to redo the finish on the coffee table I have in the basement to use in our living room (AGAIN, see the question above about me being a delayer. Yep. Every single time.)

Insert your own random thought here.

My sweet grandson, Bennett, turned 6 months old this past week. He is such a joy and delight to our lives, and I am so blessed to be able to see him and kiss him and snuggle him every day. He is beautiful and happy and smart and healthy and perfect.

  3. Hi there! I'm visiting via the Hodgepodge. I like your first statement about a healthful lifestyle; slow and steady makes is a part of life and not just a fad. Your grandson is adorable! We both have daughters that share a name; my daughter's is spelled Bryn. Hope you have a blessed day!

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!
