Hodge Podge Wednesday

1.  How did you welcome the month of July, and tell us one fun thing you did to celebrate the 4th. (or the weekend for any non-USA residents playing along today)

July has been welcomed in with a few parties and lots of fun. Family, picnics, fireworks and lots of fun was nvolved in all the great fun. 

2. Right now...what's your favorite red thing? white thing? blue thing?

My favorite red thing would be my raggedy ann and her red hair. My favorite white thing would have been the coconut cream pie I just ate. The favorite blue thing would be something like this 

3. Wave the white flag, raise a red flag, fly your freak flag...which 'flag' have you flown most recently? Explain.

The white flag has been raised to keep peace most repeately and recently. Sometimes it is better to make peace than to raise the red flag and go forward

4. According to Cond Nast Traveler these are the seven best places to visit in July-

a boat safari in Botswanna's Okavango Delta, Riviera Maya mexico (it's whale shark season and apparently you can swim with them), Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons, Pamploma Sapin, St. Petersburg Russia, the Fuji Rock Festival at Mount Naeba Japan, the Salzburg Festival in Salzburg Austria

If time and money weren't factors would you want to see any/all of these? Which would you most like to see and why? 

There are a few on the list and a few others I would rather not travel to. There is beauty all around and so many places to visit that I have never been around me that I would rather stay local and see what its all about

5. Grilled cheese, pimento cheese, or mac and cheese...your favorite from the cheesy treats listed? 

not a big cheese eater any more but I would say that a grilled cheese would be my favorite

6.  What makes you sweat?

Sweating is easy with the heat all around, work is another place to sweat and I seriously sweat while I watch my children make their own decisions in life. I can no longer take over for them and tell them how to do things

7. Your favorite movie with a 'patriotic' theme of some sort? 

Wow there are so many like indepence day, tour of duty and many others

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

making plans for more summer fun and great blog post ideas Hoping it does not get to hot today and yet knowing that there is no way to do that 

join the fun here


  1. It's just too hot to go outside this summer. Maybe it's best we all stay inside and blog.

  2. Actually, we are going to discover America next! I like local too.

  3. We're finally getting some warm dry days here but nothing like your heat. I'd be sweating too. We don't have a particular celebration day in the UK. We have bank holidays in May and August but they don't commemorate anything special. There has been talk of making 23rd June and Independance day - the day we voted to leave the European Union!

  4. Coconut cream pie is one of my favorites! I like anything coconut. Hope you have a great day!

  5. Such a fun post, great idea! I am sweating here in Florida, so ready for fall!
    Also, I now want to watch the Patriot :)

  6. Is there anything harder than watching your kids make their first adult decisions...especially when you can look at it and KNOW it's not going to go well? I spend a lot of time praying and biting my tongue.

  7. I actually don't really like summer all that much, so I tend to not even think about what month it is. When September hits, I get pretty excited because THE FALL is my favorite season! :)
