Wednesday Hodgepodge



1. It's National Bike Week...do you own a bicycle? When did you last ride a bike? I no longer have a bicycle.  I can't even remember the last time I rode one!  Probably when I still had the bike when we lived in West, TX.

2. What's something you learned in school that wasn't part of the curriculum?In 2nd grade I learned the value and importance of honesty and how that builds trust.

3. What's a food you've never tried, but want to try? What's a food you've tried and will never try again?  I have never tried asparagus and that is something I'd like to try.  I have tried beets and don't care to eat those again. 

4. Have you been more demanding on yourself lately or less? Why? Do you think that's a good trend?  As I feel like myself again following the miscarriage, I have wanted to do all my regular things since I feel like it now.  I realized the other day that the two weeks after the miscarriage I did just let myself sleep and rest as I needed to and didn't push myself to do everything I normally do and am glad that I could do that. I think it helped in my healing. 

5. Who is your favorite book, movie, or TV show villain? I have no idea! 

6. How concerned are you about identity theft? I am concerned about this.  I have had two instances recently in which charges were on our online bank statement that we did not authorize.  The first time it was right after I had purchased items online and found the charge to some online Lego shop or something similar that we did not buy.  Then the next time happened on Mother's Day (which is why I was digging in the trash last week).  My husband and I both knew the amount on the receipt was $8.60, and it showed up $13.60 online.  We found the receipt and did talk to the business.  They found out an employee was adding tips for himself, he did this for 5-6 others.  I wonder how many of the others noticed.  The business was  very nice about it and apologetic to my husband.  So these two things make me concerned for identity theft because it can happen without realizing it.

7. I saw this last question on Dawn's blog a couple of week's ago and asked if I could share. Everybody hop over and say hi, but first answer this...would you rather have an ordinary home in an extraordinary place or an extraordinary home in an ordinary place?  I have reasons I'd choose either of these....I'm in an ordinary home in an ordinary place and love both.  I suppose some days it'd be fun to live in an extraordinary home. 

8. Insert your own random thought here. I got a place booked for our summer vacation!  I wasn't in the mood to plan it after the miscarriage, but now I'm looking forward to it. 

Have a day of blessings!

Fried asparagus is delicious, if you're going to try asparagus, you should fry it!

I'm glad that you're feeling more like yourself these days and that you were able to take the time you needed to handle yourself and your emotions.

I love asparagus, roasted is my favorite. I also like beets, but I know many people don't. I hope you have a wonderful holiday and find peace for your aching heart. Thinking of you~

What a great lesson to learn in 2nd grade. I have become a huge fan of asparagus. Love it in the oven with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Lots of recipes on Pinterest. Glad you have plans for the summer.

I only tried asparagus a few years ago but now I love it.
I am glad you took time to help your recovery and were able to book a vacation place :)
