Feelin' Gettin' Stronger: The Weekly Hodgepodge

Join the fun! 
Come on over to 
for the Hodgepodge link-up!
We've reached edition number 315 here in the Wednesday Hodgepodge. So tell us, what were you doing at 3:15 yesterday? Is that typical? On a scale of 1-10 (with 1 being low and 10 being high) what's your energy level usually like at 3:15 PM?

I had a long day at work (Monday), so at 3:15 p.m. I was taking a much needed nap.  My energy level is usually around a 4 at that time of day.  Most days, a nap brings it back up to around a 7 or 8.  The other days?  Not so much.  Rarely can I make it through the day without a nap.  That's one of the reasons I'm taking a week off before driving out West--to retrain myself not to have to get up at the apex of dawn's butt crack every morning.

A Frisbee, a tantrum, a towel, a party, a punch, or a curveball...which have you most recently thrown or had thrown at/for you? Elaborate.

A tantrum--and no, not from a small child, a grown up (or two).  We are doing some much needed renovations at work, so certain areas are temporarily off limits to us and the customers.  The staff is rolling with it and adapting to the brief inconvenience as best we can.  The customers?  Most of them understand, but there's always THAT ONE (or two) who throws a wall-eyed fit.  Really dude?  Really? 

What are three things that would help you right now. Tell us how or why.

  • A full night of uninterrupted sleep.  (see the answer to question one)
  • A newer car because of my upcoming long drive (and my car is more than 20 years old--reliable, but old).
  • Some extra money since I'm not sure how long it will take to find the right job once I'm at my destination.
Do you think you're strong? Why or why not? What makes you strong?

In all areas, I don't feel that I am at my strongest, but I feel that I have gotten stronger over the past few years and will continue to do so.

Do you enjoy reading historical fiction? What's your favorite book set sometime in the past?

Yes.  My favorite book set in the past is City Girl by Lori Wick.  It is set in the West in the late 1800's.  It's part of her Yellow Rose Trilogy.  All three books are good, but that one is my favorite.

Insert your own random thought here.

It's less than 3 weeks before my departure and my excitement is growing more and more intense.  Keep sending up prayers for a glorious outcome.


  1. Dropping by as your Hodgepodge neighbour. I agree that naps are a good idea. Hope your trip goes well.
