Maybe a Hodgepodge


... we will see!  I'm going to attempt it, anyway.  Recall, the Wednesday Hodgepodge takes place weekly at From This Side of the Pond.  Joyce asks the questions, readers answer them on their own blogs and then link up.  Here we go:

1. What's something you 'may' do this month? 

My hubby and I may plan a getaway.  We'd really like to take a couple of nights away.   At the very least we may try spending a few nights at our little camp.

Our temporary water supply at the camp

2. Last time you literally or figuratively shouted mayday!

Probably figuratively -- using different wording -- just a couple of hours ago during my prayer time, as I prayed for our country. 

3. Let the chips fall where they may, come what may, maybe, Cape May, mayflies, devil may care, you may now kiss the bride,  much to our dismay, mayhem, mayonnaise...choose a 'may' word or phrase from the list and tell us how it relates to your life in some way right now. 

Oh, to make it easy, let's say mayonnaise.   I really like Hellman's mayonnaise.  But a few months ago Walmart had jars of Kraft Mayonnaise for 50¢.  Of course I had to buy several jars even though it is not my top favorite.  Just used the last jar, so it's back to Hellman's!

Think there's any Hellman's mayo in that fridge?

4. If someone were serving you breakfast in bed this weekend, what would you like to see on the menu?

Something non-crumbly.  Let's see.   Maybe a slice or two of a crustless quiche, served on a little plate with a fork.  Maybe some firm-textured mini muffins and a little dish of whole strawberries.

5. Tell me one true thing you believe about motherhood. 

Even though I often feel that I failed miserably as a mother, God has known my heart and intention to be a good mother.  He has guided me, sometimes in spite of myself.  Countless lovely, meaningful Mother's Day cards and gestures over the years encourage my heart.

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

It's been a very odd couple of months.  April was filled with March winds; now May, along with the last week or so of April, is featuring lots of April showers.   It's been glorious weather for the May flowers, however, and the daffodils and forsythia are still holding their own.  Azaleas are bursting out all over.  No lilacs yet.

And there's another edition of the Wednesday Hodgepodge!


  1. Hello, a little getaway would be nice for sure. We love our Hellman's/Best Food Mayonnaise in our house, too. Motherhood is a revealing calling for sure. Hope you have a lovely Mother's Day weekend.

  2. Yay for staying overnight at the camp! did you get the outhouse done yet? I hope so! Sounds like a fun "retreat". We prefer Hellmann's Mayonnaise too. I just bought some today at our local store for $2.98 each, which is a $1.00 savings, so I bought 2. That's all I have room for in the pantry right now. No, that pretty vintage kitchen doesn't look like the refrigerator is very practical. It looks lovely, but where's the mayo, the ketchup, the mustard, the milk and eggs? LOL. Love the picture, however. Hope you have a blessed and beautiful Mother's Day.
