The Wednesdays just keep on coming around, don't they? Yes, it's Wednesday again: time for the Hodgepodge with Joyce and friends at From This Side of the Pond.
Why not join in this week? Just head on over, copy the questions, then paste and answer them on your own blog. Go back over to Joyce's to link up, and you're done! Here are this week's questions:
1. I feel most energized when I _______________________.
Hmm... how to fill that in? Probably when I return from a getaway of several days in which I had lots of recharging time.
2. Where were you ten years ago?
Between a rock and a hard place ... probably the hardest trial I have ever faced. Although I didn't really want to, I looked back at my archives for July of that year to see how I was faring. What I found was encouraging: I kept on crafting, I kept on planning menus; I blogged faithfully; and I shared many lessons and relevant quotes concerning what God was teaching me. This post:A Thought on Trials sort of sums it up.
3. July 17th is World Emoji Day. Do you use emojis? Which one's your favorite? Your most used?
I mostly use them only for Instagram. My favorites/most often used are smiley faces of one sort or another. Sometimes I use flowers, foods, or hearts.

4. What song would you put on a wedding DO NOT PLAY list?
5. What deserves less of your attention? More of your attention?
This is going to take some thought. I think that my Etsy shop and my blogs both need more of my attention right now. People also need more of my attention, whether in person or in prayer. My home needs much more of my attention. I'm sure there are things that deserve less of my attention but I'm at a loss to think of one right now. No doubt I will see the exact right answer to that on someone else's Hodgepodge!
6. Insert your own random thought here.
We did have a lovely weekend! It was filled with people and wonderful activities. Friday night and Saturday morning we were in getaway mode, which is always nice. Then we attended a beautiful, meaningful wedding where we reconnected with dear Christian friends from Nevada. Late afternoon, we met up with fellow blogger Vee for a delicious supper out and even ice cream! What a treat that was!
Sunday was a great day in church, a time of seeing answered prayer and some delightful visitors. Sunday evening and afternoon we enjoyed a hike with friends and grandkids, then celebrated National Ice Cream day by going out for cones.
