Wednesday HodgePodge - on time!!

1. Thursday (September 22) is the first official day of autumn in this part of the will you welcome the season? I know some of you have been celebrating way too early, but it's official now so permission granted. House Beautiful recently listed ten ways to make your home smell like fall (you can read the list here) What's a scent you love this time of year and how will you add it to your home?
I am welcoming the season by . . . .spending a few days at the beach!  It is still in the 90's here (and at our house, too) so it doesn't seem like fall.  There have been a few mornings (at 5:15) when the air has had a hint of fall!!
I have horrible allergies so I'm never interested in "fake" scents but do love the scent of pumpkin spice . . .and turkey and dressing baking in the oven . . .

2. Apple pie or pumpkin pie? Apple cake or pumpkin bread? Warm apple cider or a pumpkin spice latte?
I really love apple roll and that was not one of your selections!  I also love pumpkin bread or pumpkin muffins - yummy!!  I'm not much of a coffee drinker so I guess I would vote for warm apple cider BUT it has to be a lot cooler than 90 degrees outside before I can enjoy drinking it!

3. Do you suffer from what is sometimes referred to as an afternoon slump? What helps ward it off before it hits and/or tell us what helps you shake it off once it's here?
I sometimes suffer from an afternoon slump.  If I'm home, I love to take a 20 minute power nap!  When I'm at work, I usually have a diet pepsi and get up and walk around the office for a few minutes.  I would love to eat chocolate (reese cups!) everyday at this time but . . .better not!
my co-workers know me well!
4. Ladies-how have your friendships with women inspired you or made you a better person? For the men here today- how have your friendships with men inspired you or made you a better person?
I have been blessed with an amazing group of friends.  They are awesome women and make me want to be a better person - always!!

5. Are you a people pleaser? If you said yes, do you think that's a good or bad thing? If you said no, do you wish you were more of a people pleaser? 
Yes, I am a people pleaser.  Sometimes it is a good thing . . .and sometimes it is not a good thing!!

6. The seasons are a-changin'...share a favorite song relating in some way to change (not necessarily seasonal change, it could be change of any kind).
I can only think of one song about change - it is an old worship song -- "Change My Heart, O God" - Change my heart O God, Make it ever true  - Change my heart O God, May I be like you!

7. What do you wish would never change? 
Things always change! 

8.  Insert your own random thought here
We are on a mini vacation . . .Lunch today was delicious and extra special because Emma was with us!

We walked on the beach at sunset tonight - so beautiful!


  1. Love your season song choice. It is one of my favorites. I now have it stuck in my head and will be humming it all day. Love that sunset picture. Emma is precious. Enjoy your mini-wacay. I noticed you were part of the Alabama blogger group. I live in the Roanoke area. My husband is the pastor at Rock Mills UMC and I am the pastor at Midway UMC. Where in Alabama are you????

  2. Enjoy your getaway. I have missed the beach this year, but we are planning something for after the holidays. We need to get moved into the house in the next month and then Thanksgiving rolls in, sometime after the new year. Have a great time!
