A Hump Day of Random Thoughts

and other bloggers for

1.July 15th is National Give Something Away Day.  What can you give away? Will you?

Probably the thing I can most afford to give away is time, but the thing I hold most dear is time.  So, will I?  I'm not sure at this point.

2. Do you have a mantra? Please share with the class if you feel comfortable doing so.

I don't think I have one.  There are a few phrases I use once in a while such as "And this too shall pass," but nothing that I base my life on.

3. Who does the grocery shopping in your house? How many times a week do you shop? Do you make a list or pray for inspiration in the produce aisle?

Hubby does most of the shopping, thankfully, but I do go occasionally.  He enjoys it and is good at it and I enjoy seeing him so happy.  It's the least I can do for him. HA!

4. Is there a TV show you're embarrassed to say you watch? You're going to tell us what it is, right?

The only least bit questionable one I watch is "Revenge."  A night-time soap opera.

5. A recent article listed fifteen words we should eliminate from our (written) vocabulary in order to sound smarter- that, went, honestly, absolutely, very, really, amazing, always, never, literally, just, maybe, stuff, things, and irregardless
Of the fifteen, which word is your most overused?

I find that I over use the word "that."

6. So apparently dying your hair gray (in your youth!) is a thing right now. It's called 'The Granny Hair' trend. Your thoughts?

I addressed this issue on my Monday blog which can be found HERE!

7. A while back Buzz Feed asked members to share the most beautiful sentence they've read in a piece of literature. A hard thing to narrow down, at least for me, but let's try. What's one of the most beautiful sentences you've ever read in a piece of literature?

"Cause me to hear thy loving kindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust:  Cause me to know the way wherin I should walk; for I lift up my soul to thee."  Psalm 143:8

8. Insert your own random thought here. 

This past Saturday Hubby and I took a road trip into East Texas to a Peach Orchard.  There were so many choices, but we ended up getting a half bushel of Ruston Reds which we shared with good friends.  If you haven't eaten one of these peaches, you have missed such a treat, for they are delicious.
 I made a peach cobbler with half of my half which is to die for.  Peach cobbler with ice cream!
So southern and so good!

  1. My mom made a cobbler the first week we were here. One of my favorite desserts! I love that verse and have it memorized in another version. I find since I memorized it, its one of my first thoughts in the morning-'show me where to walk for I am trusting you'...Enjoy your day!

  2. Yes that is a perfect mantra! The peach cobbler looks delicious.

  3. I love that verse and what a good prayer to pray each day. Your cobbler looks fabulous!


I do love reading your comments, so please share your thoughts with me.
