Summer Nights HodgePodge

1. Summer's here-whoohoo! What's your favorite sight, sound, AND smell associated with summer? The vivid blue of a summer sky. The chirping of life. The fragrant floral and fauna. AND The feel of the wind on my face riding down the road on my motorcycle! lol

2. Fireflies or lightning bugs...what are they called in your neck of the woods? I call them lightnen' bugs.

3. What is something from the past week that reminded you of your childhood? Walking in the rain.

4. Define 'the good life'. Being with my family, all of them healthy and happy, sharing our faith.

5. Tell us what we'd see if you took a snapshot of your desk/work space? A muttled mess!

6. Peaches or watermelon...yes, you have to choose. Peaches. I make jam with the intention of keeping that summer fresh flavor all winter long. Or until I run out of jam.....whichever comes first. lol

7. Ever been skinny dippin'? Is that too much for the Wednesday Hodgepodge? Rest assured we won't need details...unless of course you feel you must but remember, this is a family friendly blog so keep it G rated. Nope!

8. Insert your own random thought here. It would seem the only blogging being done here lately are these weekly hodgepodge answers. Summer is trudging along pretty uneventful. Perhaps I'll find inspiration after my motorcycle trip.

 A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken.  ~James Dent

I leave you with this "summer" song and video by Brad Paisley:

Thank you for stopping by and visiting. Please hop on over to Joyce's to read other participants answers or better yet, link up with your own.

Peace and Joy,

Psalm 91:1 (NKJV)  He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I'm going to pick some peaches this summer mom used to make something called Peach Honey and I'm going to try to find the recipe. It was so good and NJ grows some good peaches!

Hi Susan, You have made me hungry for peaches! Hope you have a wonderful time on your motorcycle trip. Enjoy today!

Mary said...

That video made me smile! I hadn't heard that song before!

My husband makes awesome strawberry jam - and it does the same for me - makes me think about spring, until it runs out ;-)

We've had a constant wind here the last couple of weeks - but the air has been stifling hot. Kinda weird.

Enjoyed your answers. I knew the answer to the first one would have a motorcycle in it. lol. Have a great time on your trip. Be safe!
until next time... nel

Love the James Dent quote!

I think that summers are all about being lazy and doing what you want without being tied to a schedule. Kudos to you for taking it easy!!

Cathy said...

Love the James Dent quote. Too funny.

I love Brad Paisley!!
AND I also love good Peach Jam/Jelly. I don't make it so I have to rely on Smuckers. They're very good but not as good as homemade...Have fun on your Bike Ride!!

gigi said...

Peaches for me too! Happy summer!

Angie said...

I like peach jam, but have never made any.

Summer is quiet here too, but I'm enjoying the break from the hectic schedule to get more blogging done. Isn't it funny, how differently we respond. :)

Enjoyed the answer about the wind blowing in your face on a ride. My husband can relate.
