The Early Bird Gets the Coffee: The Weekly Hodgepodge

Want to join the party?  Go on over to From This Side of the Pond  for the Hodgepodge link-up!

What's your favorite time of day? Why?
Mornings.  I'm not an extreme early bird, but mornings mean newness to me.  It means starting over.  It means COFFEE.  My mornings usually set the tone for the rest of the day.
Waffle iron, toaster, coffee maker, mixer, blender...which small appliance would you say most needs replacing in your house?
We just replaced the coffee pot, so we're good.
It's National Grouch Day (October 15)...what's something that makes you feel grouchy?
Hormones.  'Nuf said.
Ever been to Canada? Is that a country you'd like to visit? According to Trip Advisor, the top ten best destinations in Canada are-Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City, Victoria, Calgary, Niagara on the Lake, Niagara Falls, Whistler, and Halifax. Which city would you most like to see?
I've not yet been to Canada. Remember, I ain't never been nowhere.  I think I would like to visit Niagara Falls.
What was your favorite food (or one of your favorites) when you were a child? Is that still a favorite?
Fried chicken was one of my favorite foods.  I still love chicken; I've just found a healthier way to cook it.

Do you cry easily?
Well, yes and no.  I try not to cry about every thing.  At the same time, I feel things very deeply and I want to be able to show my emotions rather than hide them or stifle them.
Have you started your (gasp!) Christmas shopping? If so when, and how much? If not, when will you even begin thinking about it?
No, I don't think I'll have the budget for that this year.  Hopefully next year, things will be better. 
Insert your own random thought here.

  1. I loved fried chicken as a kid, but we just don't eat that way anymore. I had a piece of fried chicken at a church dinner with my daughter last May and honestly it felt too rich and heavy. I prefer my chicken grilled now. Lovely painting!

    1. Thanks. Yeah, fried chicken makes me feel greasy when I eat it now.
