My participation in the Wednesday Hodgepodge has been sporadic lately to say the least and I have missed it. So, I was excited to be able to play along with all the other Hodgepodgers this morning.
To see how they have answered these questions, pop over to Joyce's blog,
and check them out.
1. Growing up, were you close to your grandparents? Tell us one or two specific things you remember about them.
|I am on the right and my sister is in Mama's lap. Not sure whose house this is, but notice the broom hanging on the wall.|
My dad's father passed away when I was very small but I do have very fond memories of him. My grandmother would come for extended visits but we were not as close to her as Mama. We loved her, but I never recall her reading to us and she wasn't the snuggling type. I do remember that she wasn't comfortable about us leaving the house as teenagers with bare shoulders. She would often offer her shawls which both tickled us and aggravated us at the same time.
2. What's an item you were attached to as a child? What happened to it?
I really don't recall being especially attached to any item as a child.
3. When you look out your window, do you see the forest or the trees (literally and figuratively)? Explain.
Literally, I see a couple trees in a neighbor's yard and one fairly large Oak tree in mine. Figuratively, I also see the trees. I tend to see details before taking in the whole picture.
4. Do you like sour candies? Which of the 'sour' foods listed below would you say is your favorite?
grapefruit, Greek yogurt, tart cherries, lemons, limes, sauerkraut, buttermilk, or kumquats
I do NOT like sour candies! Of the foods on the list, grapefruit with Greek yogurt would be my favorite.
Have you ever eaten a kumquat? What's your favorite dish containing one of the sour foods on the list?
5. July 1st marked the mid point of 2017. In fifteen words or less, tell us how it's going so far.
Crazy with travel and helping to take care of my sis.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
On Monday, I featured the Balloon Fest recently held in our city and the sights of them going right over our house on Sunday morning. One of the residents of our subdivision has a drone and got these amazing pictures.
