Wednesday, February 8, 2017


     We are seven days into the month of February and so far no major events have transpired. SWMBO is recovering from her oral surgery and is now scheduled to enter the hospital for her stem cell transplant on February 15th.
     Today (Tuesday) we celebrated the occasion of our youngest granddaughter's 6th trip around the Sun. She is such a cute and wonderful child. SWMBO and I are truly blessed. 
     Tomorrow being Wednesday means that it's Wednesday Hodgepodge time. Thank you Joyce and now, onto the Hodgepodge...

1. What's the last thing you did that someone else thought was super? 
     I replaced the kitchen faucet tip with a more "gadgety" tip which SWMBO absolutely loves. The faucet swivels, it sprays, and it has a lever to control the water flow intensity. Like I said, gadgety!

2. The last thing you ate that tasted superb?
     Last night I had a cake that was superb. It had coconut and pineapple cream. Yummy!

3. Supersensitive, superstitious, superwoman, superambitious, supercilious, supervisor, superficial...pick a super word from the list and tell us how it relates to your life in some way recently or currently. 
     None of those "super" words relates to my life recently or currently. Especially the "superwoman" one, I'd never pass the physical and I thank God for it!

4. Do you love easily? If you're comfortable doing so, explain why you think that is. 
     I think that I do love easily. I think the reason stems from my belief in God. He loves me without measure and He requires me to love others as I love myself, better than I love myself. So I try to imitate God's example because I believe that it pleases Him. Also, some people are easy to love.

5. Valentine's Day lands on a Tuesday this year. Will you mark the day in some way? If you're celebrating with a dinner out somewhere will it be on Tuesday or will you celebrate over the weekend?
     I will mark the day in some way. Because my beloved SWMBO might read this post I won't specify how. 

6. What's something you are loving right now? 
     I am loving my life right now. Even with all the trials and challenges I am lavishly blessed and mostly content. God has shown His presence and providence in tangible ways. Additionally, my beloved SWMBO's devoted love had shown itself to be true over and over again. I got no complaints.

7 Write a three word (or less) phrase you'd like to see on a Valentine candy heart.  
     "Guess Who?"

8.  Insert your own random thought here. 
     At the risk of sounding like I'm gloating, my beloved New England Patriots are Super Bowl Champs for the fifth time. It was an exciting game.  It was one of the most exciting games I have seen. The Atlanta Falcons played a spirited and tough game. They could have easily won if one or two things broke their way. Up until the fourth quarter, I believed that the Falcons were going to win. They were up by 19 points. When the Patriots missed a point after touchdown kick I figured that it wasn't the Patriot's night. I was wrong! 
     The Falcons head coach and quarterback showed a lot of class in their post game interviews after what had to have been a heartbreaking loss. I am certain that they will be back in the Super Bowl again. Their team is too young and too talented to not make it back to the big game.
     Today the city of Boston closed down for the day and the Patriots had a parade through the city to the resounding cheers of Patriot Nation who were lining the streets.  It was cold and snowy but the parade would, and did, go on. It was well deserved! GO PATRIOTS!


  1. That Super Bowl is one for the history books in so many ways! We really didn't care which team won and, like you, thought the Falcons had it wrapped up. WOW!! I'm taking a Blogging break for the month while we get moved into our new home. I don't have time for it right now, but will be passing through here and there. Wanted to catch you Hodgepodge!! Congrats to your team and prayers for your dear SWMBO and her coming treatment!

  2. No denying it was an exciting game. I've never been a Patriots fan, but I enjoyed the game and love that it was a good matchup. That cakes sounds so good. Anything coconut is fine by me. Continuing to keep you both in my prayers. Take care.

  3. Since I'm from Georgia, I wish the outcome of the Superbowl game had been different, but, alas, it wasn't meant to be... Maybe next time!
    That new faucet sounds awesome :)
    I love your answer to #4. Lots of truth and wisdom there...
    I wish SWMBO the best with her upcoming procedure. Prayers are going up for both of you.
    Take care,
    Kathy (Reflections)

  4. Go Pats! Yes, that was quite a game. Are you participating in the A to Z this year?

  5. What a game that was! We actually went to bed in the 3rd quarter (we get up at 4:30 a.m.) and didn't hear the outcome until morning. So exciting!

    That cake sounds fantastic.

    I enjoyed reading your hodgepodge answers. Have a great rest of the week!

  6. Hooray for the new kitchen gadget. That cake sounds yummy! It was a great Super Bowl game, I enjoyed watching it. I will continue to pray.....

  7. Aw, c'mon Superwoman! :)

    Well, I live in Alabama, so the Falcons were closest thing we had to a decent NFL team this year. I was hoping for them to win, but I really didn't have a dog in the fight. Now, University of Alabama losing the BCS Championship to Clemson still hurts. Well, let's see if the Braves can do anything this year.

    I hope you and SWMBO have a great week.

  8. I am pretty DIY, but I won't mess with electrical or plumbing, But installing gadgets would be right up my alley.
