Wednesday Hodgepodge - Vol 91

Welcome to another edition of the Wednesday Hodgepodge hosted by Jocye From This Side of the Pond.


1. Americans will celebrate Labor Day this coming weekend. Do you know what we're actually celebrating? (without consulting your friends Google or wikipedia, ahem) What's a project you're currently 'laboring' over?

My husband is a history teacher so I suppose I should know what the holiday is about.  :)  Without his help, another blog or wikipedia.. I do know what the holiday is about.  
Right now I am updating my curriculum and finding new craft ideas for my preschoolers.  It is taking a lot of time.  I am organizing my 'curriculum closet'.  It needs a lot of work (and I think I will need another closet).


2. Labor Day also signals the unofficial end of summer for most of us...what summer food will you miss the most? If you're in the southern hemisphere feel free to substitute winter for summer.

All of my garden veggies: zucchini, tomatoes, lettuce, string beans, peppers.  My herbs: basil, rosemary, parsley and chives.  I know you can get all this in a grocery store, but there is nothing better than food right out your garden.

3. A well known proverb states, 'It's easier to seek forgiveness than ask permission.' Your thoughts?

Well, I use it when it APPLIES to ME.  I do not like it when it is used AGAINST ME!  :)

4. Food critic, film critic, book critic, art critic....which hat would you most like to wear?

Book. I LOVE TO READ.  I only wish I had more time to do so.

5. When you were a kid, who (besides your parents) was your favorite adult?

My Nanny.  I remember spending a lot of time at her house when my Mom went to work.  There was an exercise program on PBS that we would do together.  The lady wore colored tights and a body suit.  I also remember my grandfather giving me his sweet pickle out of his lunch kettle too.  I found out later that my Nanny packed it in the lunch kettle for me and my grandfather didn't like sweet pickles.

6. The astronaut, Neil Armstrong, passed away last week. He was regarded as a hero by many generations of people all around the world. Do we still have modern day heroes? What makes someone a hero?

I think anyone who fights for the greater good is a hero.  It could be someone who stops a bully, a policeman fighting crime or a soldier fighting for our rights.   
My personal hero is my husband.  He has shown me the love and kindness that every woman should have.

7. I never get tired of Matt Damon, chocolate and Moscato.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
My niece is home and doing much better. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.Photobucket

  5. I almost said book critic, but then I figured I'd have to read whatever books they told me vs the books I want to read ... so I decided to pass on that. ;-) What a sweet story about your grandparents.

  14. The garden treats are so much better for you from out of your garden. You know exactly what's been done to them, etc. I admire you for being able to have such a great garden with so many varieties!

  15. I just realized (while reading yours) i didn't finished answering the second half of Nr. 1. Your bookcase looks great. Organizing my books is something I need to do too.
    Your garden also sound like a great source of fresh herbs.
