It's time again for the Wednesday Hodgepodge, where Joyce asks the questions and bloggers provide the answers. It's usually a lot of fun -- though sometimes a challenge -- and a great way to come up with an interesting blog post. If you'd like to join in, just head over to From This Side of the Pond and get the questions from Joyce, then answer them on your own blog. Here are the questions for this week:
The Apple Crisp Pizza above is one of our very favorite fall desserts, especially to serve to company or to take to a potluck.
2. Slow as molasses, icing on the cake, that's the way the cookie crumbles, have your cake and eat it too, half-baked idea, that takes the cake...which phrase might be applied to something in your life in recent days? Explain.
Slow as molasses is the way I feel most days. But on a more upbeat note, my hubby and I enjoyed a recent getaway. It's always a blessing to just get out of town and spend some uninterrupted time together. The "icing on the cake" was finding some new-to-us hiking trails, exploring a little town we'd never visited, and trying a couple of new restaurants. Even more icing was the fact that the fall foliage was at its peak of color in the area we visited.
3. Something that's 'easy as pie' for you to do?
I'm trying to think of something in that category. Let's see: It's incredibly easy for me to eat far too many potato chips. That would be just one example.
4. Are you someone who likes to 'sugarcoat' news you think might not be well received, or are you more of a tell it like it is and let the chips fall where they may? Do you like to receive your news the same way you give it?
I'm not really one to "sugarcoat" things, but if I had difficult news to share I would approach it as kindly as possible. When I receive news of that type, I would appreciate being told kindly as well. I've received a lot of news delivered in other ways, and it is most distressing.
5. Something you did recently that made you feel like a 'smart cookie'?
Located a beautiful, reasonably priced Airbnb for our recent getaway. I didn't feel all that smart -- I prayed, God provided. But my hubby (who was well aware of my answered prayers) must have raved a dozen times about me finding this place. It really was lovely and fit our needs exactly.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Random indeed, but I found it fascinating. We visited a very old cemetery while out and about on our getaway. Some of the stones in this cemetery are so old that the inscriptions were written with the fs in place of s.
And there's the Hodgepodge for this week. Happy Wednesday, all!
