Hodge Podge - Vol 45


It is Wednesday, hump day, middle day of the week and I am so glad.  This has been the longest week so far.  I am glad Joyce provided me with a little fun and Hodge Podge.  I look forward to this day every week.  Want to join in? Head over to Joyces and get the questions and link up when you are done. 
1. Do you like chili? Red or white? Beans or no beans? Spice or no spice? Toppings?
I am a huge chili fan. I like  the red kind and the white.  I like it with beans or without.  I like it in the fall and winter and on hot dogs.  I love to put mine on a base of corn chips or cornbread and then top it off with some shredded cheese and a dab of sour crea/plain yogurt.  I don't mind SOME spice but my stomach can't take too much.
2. Red-orange-gold...your favorite fall color?
Yes to all of the above.  I love all the colors, sights, and smell of fall and love to decorate for fall.  My kitchen has red/apple accents, my office is soft golf, I love deep greens, orange, yellow, and burnt orange decorate my dining room.  I think fall is one of the prettiest times of the year.  I can't wait for a big change in leaves....although I am seeing some hints now.
3. Who did you idolize when you were growing up?
My dad, grandfather, and youth leaders at church.  They were my role models and were the shining stars in my life.  I feel sorry for kids today with all the idolizing of singers, athletes, etc....where are the REAL idols?  The ones who follow Christ's examples.
4. When was the last time you did something 'arts and craftsy'? Share please.
I modged podged some baskets for a giveaway.  They were really cute.  I am currently working on a bracelet craft and liking it.  I will post pictures when I am finished.
5. What's a place that makes you really nervous?
Besides the dentist and doctor...I would have to say haunted houses.  I don't like any of them.
6. Horseback riding...yay or nay (neigh?)
I have not done it in years....but when I did ride I loved it.  Now I would rather be straddled a trike cruising through the mountains.
7. What's your favorite cliche?
They are as thick as thieves.  As an English teacher I tend to steer away from them.
8.  Have you ever done something out of your comfort zone that turned out to be an amazing experience? 
April 2009 the group I sing with, Still Magnolias opened for Country Music Hall of Famer, George Jones.  I have sung for years before crowds....but when we stepped on that stage...I was totally out of my element.  This was a place reserved for professionals...and stars...and I was neither....but once I heard the first stroke of the fiddle....I felt as at home as if I had been there all my life.  It was an awesome experience!

That was a big and exciting step for you. How awesome to sing on a big stage. Way to go! I don't like haunted houses either.
