Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Speaking of endings….at your wit’s end, at loose ends, a dead end, burn the candle at both ends, all’s well that end’s well, or no end in sight…which ‘end’ phrase might best be applied to your life lately? Explain.

“At my wit’s end” would probably be the best choice here. No matter what, it seems I’m beating my head against a wall. I plan to get this or that done, and something comes along to make sure it doesn’t get done.

2. What was a must have accessory when you were growing up? Did you own one? If so tell us what you remember about it.

The first thing to come to mind was a Izod jacket. Remember the little gator/crocodile logo? Those were all the rage. I do not remember owning one myself, but there were plenty being worn around our school.

3. Something that made you smile yesterday?

It gave me a great many smiles trying to capture the moon with our oldest daughter last night and then this morning. Supposedly, we weren’t going to be able to see the eclipse here on the Texas Gulf Coast, but we did see it through totality. It was awesome. I’m sure I gave our neighbors a good laugh, too, being out there in my cardinal nightgown, sandals and socks, at 40-something degrees between 6 and 7am. 🙂

4. January 30th is National Croissant Day. Do you like croissants? Sweet or savory? We’re having chicken salad for lunch…would you rather have yours served on a croissant, a wrap, a bagel, bread, or a roll of some sort?

I love bread in most any form that I can get it. I think croissants are great. I prefer savory croissants. I think chicken salad in a wrap or a croissant is yummy, but it is great on other breads, too. I just don’t particularly care for bagels. I think they are icky.

5. Sum up your January in fifteen words or less.

I am glad to be home. Hospitals and nursing homes are emotionally and physically exhausting.

6. Insert your own random thought here.

I read some especially interesting verses during my devotion time this morning. I don’t generally get involved in political talk because, even with voting, I don’t really feel that I can change anything. These verses stood out to me because of the anti-president talk we’re faced with every day, no matter who the president is:

Romans 13:1-2, King James Version

“1. Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
2. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.”

No matter who ends up in office, they are there because Heavenly Father allowed them to be, to somehow work to His glory and good. Shouldn’t we, rather than griping about them, pray for them instead? We can pray for them and for our country while continuing to work to make things the way we think they should be.

If for no other reason, do it for them…

  1. Always nice to learn more about you. My hubby and I checked the moon at 11:30 last night. We didn’t get to see the eclipse here, but the moon was bright and pretty.

    1. Thank you, Ellen. It is always nice to receive your comments. 🙂
      Oh yes, it was a beautifully bright moon! I was just out taking some mail to the box and it is very bright tonight, too. That eclipse was bright and early this morning. I would have likely missed it had my phone not still been set on the alarms for Monday morning. I forgot to turn them off. 🙂
      It was a blood moon, too. I was able to see a little bit of red as the shadow passed over the moon, but not a lot. Our oldest daughter was able to see it way better than me and was able to see the red on the moon. Who knows when these things will line up like this again. I was very happy to share that moment with her. 🙂
      Have a blessed week!


  2. We caught a bit of the blue moon as we were on the road somewhere very early Wednesday morning. We’ve had some great moons these past few months. I’m glad your hubs is home and on the mend. Have a wonderful weekend!

    1. I agree! There have been some awesome moons and so very bright. A couple of nights we didn’t even need a flashlight out there. It was great.
      Thank you. We are very happy to be home. I hope that you have a blessed weekend, too. 🙂
