Wednesday HodgePodge - Patience?
Yup, it's Wednesday - Check out other HodgePodge entries here.
1. What's something that has recently 'tried your patience'?
I bought a gorgeous skein of yarn, and when I was winding it with my swift and ball winder I got into a horrible tangled mess. It took over an hour to undo and was so very frustrating.
2. Do you think patience comes to us naturally or is it something you have to learn as you grow? On a scale of 1-10 generally how patient are you? (1=I blow up at the drop of a hat and 10=I've got all the time in the world).
I think patience comes to some easier than others but i do think you can develop patience over time and with age. Generally speaking I am not very patient. I would probably give myself, on a good day, a five.
3. Share about a time when you felt like you could fly. Or a time you wished you could fly. Or a time you felt like you were flying.
I always wish I could fly - especially so I could be close to my children when they have been living far away. I dream about flying often. I love those dreams.
4. Your favorite song with the word fly in the title or lyrics, or your favorite song that relates to flying in some way?
First song that came to my mind is one my grade 4/5 choir sang called On the Back of an Eagle.
5. What's in your fall picnic basket and where are we picnicking in your neck of the woods this time of year?
Well, it would be Mole Pie. Ha! No, really. It is a recipe that comes out of the Redwall books. It is really called Deeper'n'Ever Turnip'n'Tater'n'Beetroot Pie The moles ate it, and it was, and is, a favourite recipe in our house and perfect for fall picnics because it is just as good cold as it is fresh out of the oven. For dessert apple pie made with apples from our own tree. The where would be at the rushing river near the Headwaters park close to our home. The sound of the river pushes all the thoughts clear away.
6. Carpentry, electrical, plumbing, landscaping...which skill would you most like to possess and how would you put that skill to use today?
Plumbing for sure. I have a leaky kitchen faucet in both my kitchen and my camper.
7. What's something you think is too expensive to justify buying lately?
This relates to the previous question. The kitchen faucet I want is over 200 dollars and I can't quite choke that down.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I will be sixty in a few days and I can't wait. I think I am going to rock my 60s.
