Philosophical HodgePodge


1. July is National Ice Cream month...your favorite flavor? Soft served, hand dipped, or frozen yogurt...which do you prefer? And technically yogurt is not ice cream but its hot outside so I'll let that slide for today. Old Fashion Peppermint. But at this time of year, Mint Chocolate Chip is a good alternative.

2. When you travel do you tend to pack too much or too little? My philosophy on packing used to be: throw in everything you think you might need then start taking out just enough to get the suitcase closed. My new philosophy is: pack just enough to get by to save plenty of room to buy things while traveling. This new philosophy worked fabulously while I was on my bike trip. 

I was able to buy five new shirts, a killer black dress that was on super sale, a skinny belt, and a souvenir bottle from the Jack Daniel's Distillery.  

It's a souvenir people!! I don't drink whiskey!!!

3. What's your favorite cleaning product? My hubby! ahaha! No really. He's a super anal clean freak. If he's in the kitchen while I'm doing food prep, cooking, or baking.....he's cleaning up after me as I step away to get an ingredient. Tho this can be annoying at times, I love him for it. He saves me so much time and work. Plus, (yes, there's more) he keeps the house clean. Oh I help with dusting and vacuuming...but he does the majority of the cleaning. And....NO! You may not borrow him. I've been asked that question several times. I won't loan him out. I'm afraid someone will break him.  

4. Which is the greater tragedy-an innocent person imprisoned or a guilty person set free? Explain. The person who is guilty and set free. This person will commit another crime.

5. What's the longest trip you've taken by car? Which is farther.....Iowa to Florida or Illinois to Arizona? Hmmm. Let's "google" that. The answer is......Iowa to Florida: 1,743 miles. Illinois to Arizona: 1,606. The Iowa trip probably took longer too. There were two adults and five children traveling together. I was 12. Longest trip ever!!! 

6. tennis-golf-canoeing-biking...pick one. Exactly what are you asking here, Joyce? What I want to try? What I like doing best? What I'm not interested in trying? I choose biking. It's something I'm able to do and I enjoy it.

7. What sound drives you crazy? Someone who crunches food with their mouth open. Ugh. Please eat quietly.

8. Insert your own random thought here. I need to evaluate my schedule. My days are flying by yet I don't feel like I'm getting anything accomplished. Anybody else encountering this?

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,

Hebrews 11:1 (NKJV) 1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

#8-raising my hand here!

Also, our hubs might be twins separated at birth : )

Sheena said...

Yep. I'm in the same boat with you and Joyce. I have no idea where time goes. No. Idea.

Jill said...

Fun answers, and it sounds like you've got a great cleaning "product" there! : )

Penny said...

Love your pic!!

BTW, with No. 7...I had a coworker who did that All.The.Time. Drove my BFF, who worked with me, crazy.

I love your packing strategy!

I totally relate to your random thought...where does the time go these days?

And I thought MY husband was a cleaning Nazi. It's funny, I meet more women whose husbands are neatniks than ones who are slobs. I love having a hubby who not only picks up after himself, but after me and the kids and the dog...Hahaha. He also irons way better than I do, and can make the whole house look better in an hour than I can in an hour. I think I'll keep him.

PS He advises that I might get more done if I didn't play on the computer so much, or just gave up blogging altogether. I think he's right.

In the summer, our schedule just goes down the drain! We happily stay up late, and sleep in. It is going to be hard when it is time to get on a schedule again for school :/

I like your thinking on #2! Sounds like a win win on that trip of yours. Your random sounds like my daily life!

I "can't" stand s.m.a.c.k.i.n.g.;eating with your mouth open. Drives me insane.
