I'm a day late, but want to try and join in on the Hodgepodge -- the linkup where Joyce, at From This Side of the Pond, asks the questions and bloggers provide the answers on their own blogs. This week's Hodgepodge questions range from royalty to Mother's Day. Here goes:
1. Did you watch the coronation of King Charles III? Share some of your thoughts about that, or about the royal family in general.
I didn't watch any of it. No TV, and was too busy (and too tired) to watch online. I do think all of the pageantry and solemnity is fascinating. Not really a fan of the king. The passing of Elizabeth was a huge loss for Britain, but of course at her age it was inevitable.
2. What are you the uncrowned queen of?
Lists. You can read more about my lists here at Secrets of the Slightly Organized, a 2017 post that a number of you have already seen.
3. In a box of chocolates which one do you usually go for?
Caramels, or some sort of nut cluster.
4. Something learned at your mother's knee?
Cooking and baking, and the blessing of using those activities to create gifts for others. You will find "kitchen gifts" labels on both of my blogs, and I have a Pinterest board for them too.
5. 'Like mother, like daughter'...in what way is this saying true for you?
See above. I also tend to save a lot of things, though I'm trying to pare down the things I have saved. Oh, and I love Christmas as much as she did. Perhaps more. So among the many saved items are stacks of old Christmas magazines like this one:
6. Insert your own random thought here.
One of the things buzzing around in my head right now is the endless opportunities for ministry that God gives us when we hand our lives over to Him, the rightful owner. Praying for a servant's heart!Little Birdie Blessings reminds us how we can bless others by serving them. God is so good!
And that's the Hodgepodge for this week! Glad I could squeak in a little time to write a post.
