Hodgepodge Already....

Sometimes it is hard to believe it is time for Hodgepodge again.  Time is swiftly passing by.  I mean really folks the year is over half gone.  Christmas will be here before we know it.  Join in the Hodgepodge and enjoy life!
1. The first week of August is National Simplify Your Life Week...what's one thing you could do this week to qualify as a participant?
My life is actually pretty simple already. I have some organizing of files on my external drive I need to do.  That would definitely make life easier.

2. It's also National Peach Month...peach pie, peach cobbler, or please pour me a Bellini?  What's your peach pleasure?
Definitely peach cobbler!  My mom used to can peaches and they were the best for cobbler...sure do miss them!

3. Eleanor Roosevelt once wrote, "Do one thing every day that scares you." Agree or disagree...explain.
I think I disagree.  I am not scared by a lot of things, I think it would be hard to find something every day.  I am not afraid to try new things.

4. What's your favorite household chore?  Yes-you have to name one.
Dusting my family pictures, nothing like family!

5. Fodors recently listed (what they've dubbed) the ten most beautiful sunset spots in America. Click here to read more and see the pretty pictures, but this is their list:

Butterfly Beach in Santa Monica CA, Mount Haleakala in Maui HI, Old Fort Marcy Park in Santa Fe NM, Laguna Beach CA, Hopi Point in Grand Canyon AZ, Four Seasons in Miami FL, Santa Monica Pier in Santa Monica CA, Gay Head in Martha's Vineyard MA, Ensign Peak in Salt Lake City UT, and Mallory Square in Key West Florida.

Have you seen the sun set from any of these spots?  If you could choose to watch the sun set this weekend from one spot on the Fodors List, which would you choose?  Where was the prettiest sunset you've ever seen?

I have seen the sun set at the Grand Canyon, not sure if it was at Hopi Point or not that was many years ago.  I love to take pics of sunsets I have so many from all over.  Here are a couple:

Panama City Beach 

Arkansas - Lusk Farms
6. What's your favorite or most used app?  If you don't use apps how about your favorite or most visited website?
I use a few apps on my zeepad.  I think the one I use the most is the Bible.

7. We've recently passed the halfway mark for 2013...write a seven word sentence that sums up your year thus far. 
Where on earth has this year gone?

8.  Insert your own random thought her
Getting excited and anxious about our new grand baby.  Talked to Jan yesterday and she is very uncomfortable and hurting a little - her back.  She talked to the doctor and they told her to get home and put her feet up and do nothing until the hurting quit.  And if got worse to come in.  She is not due until October 17th.  Eden was about 7 weeks early and spent her first 6 weeks in NICU, we are praying and believing there will be no complications with this little man!  

until next time...nel


  1. I wish I was organized and specifically simplified! (Too much time on my computer)
    That's a good one you picked...dusting off the family photos. Love your sunset pictures. Very excited for you with the new grand baby coming. Praying the baby stays in awhile longer.

  2. love your sentence...oh so true! it is flying by

  3. My favorite it a sunset on the water, but mountain sunsets are pretty spectacular too. Praying all stays well with mama and baby!

  4. I love that photo with the sunset exactly over the sail. I agree, where has the year gone? Best wishes on the birth of your grandchild.

  5. Your sunset photos are beautiful! New babies are so exciting and such a blessing. This year really has gone by quickly, hasn't it?
