Wednesday is here again which means that there absolutely must be another Wednesday Hodgepodge. Thanks to our Hodgepodge Mistress, Joyce Daley, for another weekly essay exam! I hope that you enjoy the edition of the Wednesday Hodgepodge.
Go on a road trip with your best friend, pick fresh strawberries, host a garden party, take a morning run, treat yourself to a flower bouquet, spend a whole day hiking, discover a new coffee shop, try a new ice cream flavor, read at least one book, visit a Farmer's Market, make a swing for your home, and visit a new city.
Which thing on the list do you most want to do? Of the activities mentioned, which one holds the least appeal? How many on the list will you attempt in June? What's one thing you'd add to the list?
The thing on the list that I most want to do is take a road trip with my best friend. The activity that holds the least appeal is taking a morning run. Next on the list of least likely is an all day hike. I will probably attempt half the items listed. One thing that I'd add to the list is a day of fresh water fishing.
2. What's something you could do today to feel more peaceful?
When I really need a pick me up I spend some time in prayer and I sing a few songs from the church songbook. I have my own copy. Praying and singing uplifting songs always gives me a measure of peace. Playing my guitar also helps in that regard.
3. June 7th is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day. Are you a fan? Swiss mocha, rocky road, chocolate chocolate chip, peanut butter and chocolate, or a dish of plain chocolate...what's your pleasure?
Neither SWMBO nor me are fans of chocolate ice cream...period!
4. If you came with a warning what would it say?
CAUTION: He's not crazy but he is a carrier! He also uses Humor and Sarcasm, often when it is inappropriate to the occasion.
5.What's the most interesting website you've visited in the last week?
The Manchester Union Leader is the local paper. I subscribe to the electronic edition. That was the most interesting website that I visited last week.
6. Spring, summer, autumn, winter...which season are you? Why?
I think that I might me mid-autumn to mid winter. I am sometime warm, other times I am cold. Often I am moderate. I am not just one season, that would be boring!
7. "You lose sight of things...and when you travel, everything balances out." ~Daranna Gidel
Would you agree with that sentiment? Explain why or why not.
I think that I more agree than disagree with Daranna. I think that traveling, getting a change of scenery often allows you to get a different perspective and everything does seem to balance out.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
All my life I have preached and shown by my example that voting is an important civic duty and every citizen is obligated to make his voice heard in the voting booth. However, for the first time in my life I am giving serious consideration to not voting for president this time around.
Mrs. Clinton does not possess the strength of character or the integrity or the ability to serve as president. If she does serve anywhere it should be in a Federal Prison. If she avoids getting indicted and is elected, we are done as a constitutional republic.
The Republican presumptive nominee is clearly not qualified to be president either. Mr. Trump doesn't have an understanding of our system of government nor does he understand the limits that are placed upon the three branches of government. I'd be surprised if he even knows that we have three branches of government. If he gets elected, we are doomed.
I don't believe or trust either presumptive nominee. So I have no idea what I'm going to do come election day 2016. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
