Wednesday Hodge Podge Throw Down

Welcome to the Wednesday Hodgepodge! If you've answered this week's questions add your link at the end of from this side of the pond's post by clicking here. And before you run off hop around and say hi to your neighbors, leaving lots of happy comments in your wake.

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 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?

I thought the movie was interesting. I didn't know much about the actual event, and the film is focused on the evacuation as opposed to a single battle. Except the evacuation ended up being the battle. The format is a little different so you have to catch on to the timeline as there is one for sea, one for air, and one for land. I thought it was well done and we enjoyed it.

Hope the Revival event goes well and enjoy your visit to your friend. I'm giving Dunkirk a miss - my Dad was one of the soldiers rescued.

I'm going to check out your book about Ireland. My husband went to see Dunkirk today, but didn't have much to say about it. A friend of mine saw it and she wasn't impressed because there wasn't much dialogue. I still want to see it though. My friend's husband thought it was very good. Maybe wait until it comes to the dollar movie theater.

Your three things you could use right now would have worked for me as well. I enjoy lesson planning, but the first day of school is rapidly approaching and I'm not where I wanted to be at this point. And having someone to clean my house ... ah ... wouldn't that be a treat!

The revival sounds very interesting to me. Glad you are going to Knoxville, have a great time. We are hoping to see that movie too, it looks like a good one.
