1. When were you last a guest at an event or in someone’s home?
The last time we were guests was in December.
Tell us about it.
It was a fun informal dinner and card night. Three couple, six of us for pizza and salad and then a great game of Hand and Foot.
Do you enjoy having guests in your own home?
We do enjoy having guests in our home. Despite what’s going on we have had overnight guests and week long guests and one family were our guests for a few weeks. Great times!
2. What has you ‘tied up in knots’ currently or recently?
Thankfully I can’t think of anything that has had me ‘tied up in knots’.
Are you any good at tying actual knots?
I am not good at tying knots but Dear is and I let him tie the knots that we can depend on.
3. What’s something you’ve been wanting to do and have decided 2021 will be the year you ‘take the plunge’?
Trying to sell off some of my dish collections.
4. Something in your home that’s old?
We have a lot of old things that got passed down from Dear’s parents. This baby grand piano is a 1906 Chickering.
Our kids enjoyed it in years past.
And now a new generation is enjoying it.
Dear’s shop is something new.
The one thing we borrow now that we live in the country is our son’s tractor about twice a year.
Lots of blue in our home. It is hard for me to walk away from a pretty blue plate. Both of our guest rooms have some blue in them, too.
5. Share a favorite quote, a verse of scripture, and/or a bit of wisdom for couples getting married in this challenging and seemingly unpredictable season we’re currently/still experiencing.
Even Jesus came to serve and not to be served and in marriage it would be good for both the husband and wife to have an attitude that is ready to serve each other and not have the expectation to be served. With this attitude gratitude for the selfless acts each one will do for the other will be genuine and this will contribute to a joy filled home.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
We are traveling today and I might not be able to get around to all the hodgepodgers until tomorrow.
Thank you Jo From This Side of the Pond for coming up with the Hodgepodge Questions each week.

…things are look great at the ranch.
I almost had a heart attack when I read you are going to sell some of your dish collection! Who are you and what did you do with my friend Ellen?? 🙂
Love that old piano! (I have my mom’s but it is only about 30 years old)
Enjoy your travels today!
Haha Willow! It’s an idea that’s floating around my country head!
I LOVE your blue dishes. I also can not walk away from blue dishes. I have a sweet tea cup with blue forget me nots hand painted on it that I rescued at a garage sale. It is one of my favorite cups. 🙂
I love dishes too. I think there are a lot of us around!!
Enjoy your traveling day.
Wonderful visit with your family, the photos are great. The new shop looks fantastic! Take care, enjoy your day!
Love your marriage advice and your table settings. I have the same glasses but in green. I picked them out when I was engaged and it was so exciting to plan for my new home as a wife! I like dishes and have a hard time saying no when a family member offers me a set. I am sentimental like that 🙂
I enjoy reading your hodgepodge responses … from the old, to the new … to the marriage advice.
Love those “re-enactment” photos with the next generation. Roomie’s family did some of that with hilarious results.
