Wednesday Hodgepodge 9/14/11 :)


1.      What do you do at the first sign of a cold? Will you get a flu shot this year?
Hope it’s just allergies… Then make sure I have some mucinex handy… No I will not get the flu shot… Everyone I know who gets them gets sick anyway… LOL!

2.      What advice can you give about how to conquer fear?
Pray, God will give you the strength to conquer your fear. 
Perfect Love (The kind that only comes from God) casts out fear.

1 John 4:18

English Standard Version (ESV)
18There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.

3.      Share two good things about your life right now.
I have an amazing husband!
I have amazing family members and friends! (ok that's 3 I know... )

4.      A hot fall fashion trend in 2011 is a return to sixties style...tunics with pants, shift dresses, pencil skirts, cinched waists, bold prints, high necklines and short lengths to name a few. How does this fashion trend fit with your wardrobe and personal sense of style?
It doesn’t…. Right now I am either wearing jeans(shorts) with a T-shirt or business clothes.

5.      Were you involved in scouting as a kid? How about as an adult?
I have never been involved in scouting but I was in missionettes.

6.      Apple, pear, plum, pumpkin...your favorite fall flavor?
Pumpkin Definitely!! I so want some pumpkin pie! My friend posted on facebook about hot fresh pumpkin pies…. I've been craving them ever since.

7.      What characteristics do you think are essential in a good teacher?
Caring, knowledge, a desire to be a better teacher, a heart for children.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Thinking about the fact that my husband knew the washer machine soap and sodas had spilled all over the ground. He didn’t even take a towel to it or even try to clean it up. Apparently, the box of soda opened on its own and cans of soda came pouring down onto the dryer making the washer soap fall to the ground and spill and 2-3 cans of soda burst…. UGH! It’s a big mess. There is splatter all across the kitchen. :(


  1. Sorry about that mess! I hate it when stuff like that happens. And it does happen. LOL

    All this talk about pumpkin pie is getting to me. I might have to whip one up!

  2. I love that scripture you used for fear. Thanks for reminding me.

    Sorry about the mess but it will happen lots more times in life!

    I'm thinking I need pumpkin pie as well ....

  3. That's horrible about the laundry soap and soda...
    Thanks for stopping by today! The post-it's are made here...
    Have fun!

  4. Love the scripture reminders about fear....I'll have to memorize them! Thanks for stopping by my blog.....a fellow pumpkin lover!!!

  5. Yipes! Good luck cleaning that mess -- doesn't look like fun at all =/

    I'm planning on becoming a teacher as well! And I love your description of what you feel a good teacher should be like :). Which grade are you planning on teaching?

  6. Pumpkin pie....yummy! Princess has been wanting me to make one. Guess I'll need to do that soon. Yikes about the mess! Sometimes life happens and you just have to take a deep breath and deal with it.

  7. About the mess: I have all but the walls and fridge cleaned now... I just have to take some soap and water to those.. I had to mop the floor and everything it was pretty bad!

    I would like to teach kindergarten, but would take anything in the primary grades! My degree is ESE/ELEM.

  8. Yea, messes...yuck and will always be there! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! Blessings to you!

  9. I was in the supermarket yesterday and the girl who bagged my groceries put a six pack of glass bottled tonic water into a single flimsy plastic bag. After I paid I realized I forgot something in the dairy aisle and as I went back for it the bottles dropped and sprayed everywhere. Grrrr....

    I'm glad today is a new day : )

  10. Thank you for stopping over. Very nice to meet you. Enjoyed your answers. I love pumpkin too and I use Mucinex too. I cannot believe that mess!!!
