August 22, 2012

Thought:  We are half way done!
Word:  Wednesday aka Hump Day!
Deed:  I made it through today, but I need to work up the energy to do some cleaning!

Wednesday Hodgepodge


 1.  Aloha!  Sadly I have never been to Hawaii.  Maybe someday.
2,  Favorite food made with pineapple:  scalloped pineapple.
3.  Yes, I believe in soul mates.  When you find the one you know and can't imagine another.
4.  The house I grew up in did not have central air.  During the summer my parents  shut the upstairs off and we (we being my sisters and I) slept on the living room floor.  It was like having a camp out everyday.
5.  Silence is golden, but sometimes I enjoy enjoyable noise.
6.  When I spot a spider, I yell for my husband or grab a shoe.
7.  My idea of fun does not include mingling with large crowds of strangers,
Random thought:  I think all my thoughts have puddled at the bottom of my throbbing legs!

Thought:  A little bit of kindness goes a long.
Word:  kindness
Deed:  I spent my first day with my away from home family (aka my class of 4th graders).  I saw several acts of random kindness towards each other.  They made me smile.

Pondering with a Purpose

This Week's prompt: Life or Living?
Are you living your life . . . or is your life your living?
Are you making choices you WANT.... or choices you are FORCED to make?
And are you okay with that?

This is a really deep concept for me today.  My brain is on overload, but here goes.  I feel like I'm living life.  I have gotten much better at making choices for myself.  I have learned to say no with I don't want to do something or can't do something.  I have also pushed myself to try new things.  Some went well, others not.  Oh, well!  That is part of the fun.
