Fall HodgePodge #46

1. It is officially fall here in North America...I realize not everyone who participates in the Hodgepodge lives in North America but if you do, what's your favorite memory of Summer 2011? If you're not in North America, what's your favorite memory of the season just ending on your side of the world? My annual motorcycle trip with my pal, Jessica. Here we are on the Natchez Trace.

2. Your favorite nut? You know I mean the edible kind, right? I love nuts. Cashews. Roasted Soy Lightly Salted. But my all time favorite, since I was a child is: Almonds. Around Christmas time, our family always had a nut bowl. You know. The kind you had to crack open. I always picked out the almonds and ate them first. I still love them today. I buy them buy the bag @ Sam's.

3. What activity puts your sense of balance to the test? Walking on a fallen log across moving water. Doesn't it make you dizzy?

4. How would you describe your sense of humor? Blonde. I don't really know how to answer this question. I have a good sense of humor. I enjoy hearing people laugh. It's good for the heart and soul.

5. September 28th is National Ask a Stupid Question Day...what's your stupid question? If Wile E Coyote had all that $$$$ to buy inventions from Acme, why didn't he just buy himself dinner?

6. Roller skates~hula hoop~jump rope...which activity would you most enjoy? Yes, you have to choose. Definitely roller skates. I just can't get that hula hoop to loop like I could when I was a child. I've tried. Ugh. It's annoying. Jumping rope? Naw.

7. What's your most sentimental possession? A plant stand that my grandfather made for my grandmother when they were first married. It is one possession she carted with her every time she moved. It must have meant a lot to her. Cards from my hubby. Treasures my daughter made when she was in grade school.

8. Insert your own random thought here. Being on vacation is definitely a two-edged sword. I love to spend the time relaxing with my hubby. I love traveling. I love new experiences. We spend too much $$$. It takes days, even weeks to recover at work from being absent. Ugh....the mounds of paperwork.

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,

1 Corinthians 2:14 (NKJV) 14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Happy Wednesday!! I agree vacations are great but the catch up is a pain. Love the sentimental cards and childhood drawings and gifts too. They are priceless!

Ha-loved your 'stupid question' : ) Traveling is fun and exhausting both...we have a trip coming up that will be great while we're there but the getting there and the returning home to regroup are stressing me out a little.

We recently bought a big bag of pecans at Sam's for cooking purposes.
Gotta love Sam's!

You know, I never thought about Wile E Coyote buying his own dinner. Sure makes a lot of sense.

Loved your answers!
