Summer Hodgepodge



1. Summer's here-whoohoo! What's your favorite sight, sound, AND smell associated with summer?   Sight:  fireflies twinkling in the darkness.  Sound:  kids laughing while they splash in the pool.  Smell:  freshly mowed grass.


2. Fireflies or lightning bugs...what are they called in your neck of the woods?   I've always called them lightning bugs, but few people outside the South knew what I was talking about.  Still call them lightning bugs with the grandchildren.



3. What is something from the past week that reminded you of your childhood?  Playing tag in the backyard with the grands....boy, am I old!



4. Define 'the good life'.  Family nearby, good health, enough money



5. Tell us what we'd see if you took a snapshot of your desk/work space?  My desk or the one I blog from?  My desk is usually pretty neat.  I have a nice lamp, pictures, flowers, etc.  Plus I put everything away when I'm done working.  The desk I blog from is Darrell's--he's not quite as neat as I am and that's all I'm gonna say.



6. Peaches or watermelon...yes, you have to choose.  Peaches...but they have to be soft and juicy!



7. Ever been skinny dippin'? Is that too much for the Wednesday Hodgepodge? Rest assured we won't need details...unless of course you feel you must but remember, this is a family friendly blog so keep it G rated.  Yes.  no photo available

8. Insert your own random thought here.  Found this in a book recently and loved it!

Grant me the serenity to know what I can change.  Let me change what I can.  Let me accept that which I cannot change.  Let me ignore that which I cannot change or accept.  Let me run away from that which I cannot change, accept, or ignore.  Let me lock myself in the bathroom, hold my hands over my ears, and hum about that which I cannot change, accept, ignore, or run away from.  Let me bite those who can change, accept, ignore, run!  Let me be!....

I could never choose between peaches and watermelon. I love them both, for different reasons. Watermelon, when just right, screams summer and family to me. But there's nothing like a good peach with a little sugar and some cream. Yum!

I love peaches, but it's getting so hard to find peaches that are actually ripe ... so many are picked before they've ripened, and they just aren't as sweet or juicy ... even if I let them sit out on the counter to "ripen".

I don't consider this part of the country to be the South, but everyone here calls them lightning bugs. ;-)

"Freshly mown grass" - if there were a perfume of that scent I'd wear it everyday. Love it!!
Great photos too, GF.

BTW, I think you'll want to jump over to my Blog and take part in the Slacker Cook give-away; perfect for Summer cooking!!

Loved your answers. Hmmm No Photo Available??!!

Thought you were going to recite the Serenity Prayer..then I read on.... Loved it!

Definitely peaches, but we bought the sweetest watermelon at Costco that I have ever tasted.

Blessings my friend,
Shawn

Absolutely love the random comment. It kinda fits me. Well not kinda, but REALLY fits me.

haha! Thank goodness pics are not available from you skinny dipping time, it's probably because we got to be stupid teens in an area that did not have cell phones with cameras and youtube and face book - I thank God for this every time I remember something that I did, with out much thought!

I call them lightening bugs as well!

Too funny! Loved the no photo available and the quote from the book.

I love that you were playing tag. Good for you.
