Wednesday Hodgepodge

Wednesday Hodgepodge is a linky party at From This Side Of The Pond blog.

I don't read From This Side Of The Pond, but I do enjoy reading A Joyful Chaos blog from time to time.

A Joyful Chaos does Wednesday Hodgepodge and I always think it would be something fun to do when I read her answers.

So, here goes, my first Wednesday Hodgepodge!

                        From this Side of the Pond
1. What is one area of your life where you're a perfectionist? Is that a good thing?

On my sewing and quilting projects, most of the time. And, yes, I think it is a good thing.

2. What's something you find perfectly ridiculous?

Daylight Savings Time!! Don't get me started, I can really rant about this one. :)

3. What's a skill you've developed by way of that old fashioned saying, 'practice makes perfect?

I think there are probably to many things to count. Piano playing, sight reading music, rolling dinner rolls into perfect little circles, rolling out pie crust and pizza dough with a rolling pin, milking goats (haven't done that in a while), reading genealogies in the Old Testament out loud, just to name the things that come to the top of my mind.

4. What's your idea of a perfect breakfast?

This one is hard! My ideal breakfast that I really want, and I think would never get old, is Cranberry Apple Soaked Steel Cut Oatmeal
Here are some honourable mentions; biscuits and gravy, bacon and eggs, warm rice pudding, and a ham and egg sandwich with strawberry jam spread on the bread.

5. What's a trip, holiday, vacation, or day outing you've taken that you'd rate a perfect 10? Tell us why.

I can't think of one.

6. What quote or saying perfectly sums up your life right now? If you can't do perfect, how about one that comes close?

Smooth sailing. I feel very blessed, grateful, and productive. I am meeting my goals, things are going well in our home life, and so "smooth sailing" fits well.

7. How would you spend $300 today?

I would spend it on building a clothesline or  building raised garden beds.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

We are reading through the book of Judges, currently. It contains so many great, vivid stories of faith and courage. And, characters like Samson clearly illustrate the fact that you cannot tell whether someone is saved based on their lifestyle.

This was kind of fun! What would your answers be?

P.S. I have no idea why my font size is doing crazy things! I am sorry about that.

I hear you on Daylight Savings time. So ridiculous!

I agree with you on Daylight Savings time! I drive a school bus and it has been nice the last two weeks to pick the kids up in the mornings and be able to see them standing at their stops. Next week it is back to darkness. Boo!

Raised garden beds would be nice. The older I get the more I am sure my back would appreciate it.

Welcome to the Wednesday Hodgepodge! So glad you played along this week. I'd chalk the font thing up to mysteries of the Internet of which there are many : ) My grandma made the best rolls, but I have not mastered it yet. Hopefully one day!

It's always great to read other answers to the podge. Gotta practice rolls for sure. Have a good week.
