Still Early Hodgepodge

Time again for Wednesday Hodgepodge! Thank you Joyce From This Side of the Pond for asking the questions!

1. January 25th is National Opposites Day. ‘They’ say opposites attract…do you agree, and if so is that a good thing? Or do you subscribe more to a ‘birds of a feather’ philosophy? 

Getting really basic, in marriage opposites are a good thing, male and female. Our marriage started with a foundation of being the same spiritually, believing in God and being born again believing in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. After 47 years of marriage we have grown more similar than different in our likes and dislikes. We have different personalities and a different skill set, which works well. Although we don’t isolate ourselves with only like minded people it is nice to have a haven of like minded people in the world of ‘differences’.

2. Something you’re glad to have behind you?

Formal schooling from Elementary through College.

Something you’re glad is ahead of you? 

Continued learning experiences of life on this earth.

3. Your favorite hot food? Cold food? Are you a fan of breakfast for dinner? 

I love food! I’ll go with soup for hot food. I’ll go with a cold cut sandwich with all the extras for cold food. I am a fan of breakfast for dinner!

4. Are you someone who always arrives to appointments/events early or do you tend to run late? Last thing you were late for? 

Early, early, early. Hmm, hard to remember something I was late for. We did make it to a surprise party after the big surprise because the person who was being honored came early!

5. “What good is the warmth of summer without the cold of winter to give it sweetness?” John Steinbeck….Your thoughts? 

Every season has so much to enjoy all on it’s own and sometimes the huge contrasts do make us appreciate each season’s special characteristics more. I’m so happy to live in a part of the country where there are distinct differences in the seasons. Some here say we have a fifth season…mud.

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

We are in a distinct Winter here with temperatures below freezing, snow still on the ground, and treacherous icy spots to avoid! We are a third of the way through Winter.

Enjoy the rest of Winter hodgepodgers!

  1. We are similar in many ways . . . views on marriage, breakfast for dinner, appreciation for the seasons! But we are opposites on #4. My mom says that I was born three weeks late and I never caught up. (Oh dear. Not proud of that.)

  2. Nice to read all your answers and I agree totally with your number 5 answer.
    I’m one of the early and on time people too.

  3. You DO have a lot of snow! I think I prefer the winters on the west side of the mountains. 🙂 My husband and I become more different the older we get: the way we drive, load the dishwasher, pay the bills… or maybe I’m just noticing it more. But we also compliment each other too. When I’m stressed he calms me, when he struggling, I help him. And, we both love breakfast for dinner!

  4. Aw those beautiful quail – they are just so pretty and round! You really do have Winter – we are in the throws of it here as well and I am resolved to enjoy it not matter what. I wish I could say I’m always early but I fail at that many times. I too love breakfast for dinner. Stay well my friend!

  5. We haven’t grown more similar. He doesn’t have the same beliefs that I have in God. Enjoyed reading your answers. I forget about soup often living in CA. I’m with you on the sandwich and breakfast for dinner. Burr!
