Also, a reminder there will not be a Hodgepodge next Wednesday (August 2nd). The HP will be back in action the week after (August 9th). Thanks!
1. We've reached edition number 315 here in the Wednesday Hodgepodge. So tell us, what were you doing at 3:15 yesterday? Is that typical? On a scale of 1-10 (with 1 being low and 10 being high) what's your energy level usually like at 3:15 PM? At 3:15 yesterday afternoon I preparing for Revival at my church. I sang last night and was practicing what I was going to do. Revival is a once a year event beginning the fourth Sunday in the month of July. My energy level at 3:15 is usually around a 4.
2. A frisbee, a tantrum, a towel, a party, a punch, or a curveball...which have you most recently thrown or had thrown at/for you? Elaborate. The first five do not apply to me. I have had a couple of curveballs thrown at me. We have flex days this year that we are supposed to be allowed to do if we attended conferences and classes during the summer....so both of my principals have scheduled Open Houses during those flex days. I made plans to go see my friend Susan in Knoxville....and have decided...I am going to Knoxville. I earned the time.
3. What are three things that would help you right now. Tell us how or why. Preparation of my class for the first day. First months lesson plans done and in the book. Someone to clean my house.
4. Do you think you're strong? Why or why not? What makes you strong? Yes I think I'm pretty strong mentally. Physically I am not very strong. I, like Joyce, place my hope and trust in the Lord and that gives me the courage and fortitude to have peace amidst the chaos of life, to handle the curveballs and hard things we all face at one time or another. Not saying I get this right all the time, but He is the cornerstone I build my life upon.
5. Do you enjoy reading historical fiction? What's your favorite book set sometime in the past? Yes I do. It's always hard to pick just one favorite anything, but it's especially tough to choose a favorite book. One of my very favorites set in the past is Anna Karenina. Not a quick read, but so so good. I also reviewed a great book that took place in Ireland during WWII called Grounded Hearts. Loved it.
6. Insert your own random thought here. Frank and I are wanting to see Dunkirk. Most of our friends who have seen it....loved it. What is your reaction if you have seen it. Is it a go to the movies and spend a fortune to see kind of movie? ...or is it a wait til it comes out on DVD one?
