Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. What would you say is the best and worst thing about moving house?

Best, a fresh slate to decorate and settle into. New space, new routines. Love it. Worst thing, packing up and then unpacking. I’ve done it far too many times. Although, I see at least one or two more moves in my lifetime.

2. What’s moved you recently?

Watching to coverage of the flooding after the Hurricane in Georgia and the Carolinas. Seeing people being rescued via helicopter, and one segment where a Labrador doggy was huddled in a tree with flood waters around him! It was so upsetting. I watched the Weather channel and yesterday they updated the story to say that they had reached the dog and gotten him to safety!

3. Do you feel your life is moving forward, backward, or is on hold? How so?

Many things are happening right now. So many wonderful things with my grandchildren, as they grow and get bigger and do more wonderful things. Yet at the same time, I am worried about Hubby.He is not getting any younger and his health is a concern to me.

4. On the move, move mountains, get a move on, it’s your move, or bust a move…which phrase best applies to some aspect of your life right now? Explain.

It’s your move! I’ve been playing a lot of Words With Friends, and it seems like it is always my move!

5. What song makes you want to get up and move?

6. Your favorite snack to grab when you’re ‘on the move’

Popcorn. I love popcorn and I can always toss some in a ziploc bag or even buy a small bag of popcorn for the car.

7. What one accessory makes your house feel like home?

My red oak round table and china closet that were my parents. Of course when they had them, they were finished in a “mahogany stain” as was popular back in the 40’s, but 30 years ago, I stripped the entire thing, found that it was in fact red oak and finished it accordingly. Yep, this set makes me feel at home.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I haven’t turned on the heat in the house until yesterday, when I woke up and it was just 52 degrees in my bedroom! I came out to the kitchen and it was just 60 degrees. So, I reluctantly turned on the heat! Bah! Winter is on it’s way!

  1. Hope your hubs is feeling better today. It’s cool here too (not as cool as you!), but I’m really enjoying my walks. I don’t have to go at the crack of dawn to beat the heat which is nice. Have a great day!
