Free Range Hodgepodge

Time for Wednesday Hodgepodge with thanks to Jo From This Side of the Pond for coming up with the questions.

The internet has been touch and go at our country bungalow so I’m behind on my visits to your blogs. Hopefully things will speed up and I’ll be back soon.

1. July 6th is National Fried Chicken Day…are you a fan? Do you make your own or have a favorite place to buy from? Do you own chickens? If not chicken what’s your favorite fried food?

Chicken is not my favorite fried food but we do enjoy fried chicken and buy it once in a while from Colonel Lickie Quickie Chickie. We do not own chickens but our local kids do. I like Tempura Vegetables and they are probably my favorite fried food.

2.  What’s something you’re too chicken to try?

Sky diving, bungie jumping, backpacking just to name a few.

3. When did you last find yourself running around like a ‘chicken with its head cut off‘?

I’m drawing a blank with this one.

4. Something you’ve done recently that makes you think ‘I’m no spring chicken’

Oh boy, here we go. Trying to get up off the floor when I get down to play with the grands. Getting down on the floor isn’t easy either. Weeding is another thing that reminds me of the natural progression of my age and how it affects my body. Trying to get out of cars that sit low to the ground.

5. ‘Winner winner chicken dinner‘…tell us about something good that’s happened in your life lately. 

So many things…

Time spent with loved ones that I hadn’t seen for ages. Visits from our kids and grands. Finding a friend to walk with. My dear husband and his care for me. Speaking of Dear, he’s painting the exterior of our home and it is looking fresh and good. Generally relationally I am blessed with very little conflict, with good relationships and I don’t take that for granted.

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

The many faces of our grands reacting to their at home Fourth of July fireworks! Thank you to our daughter-in-law for capturing these moments.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. The grands are so cute reacting to 4th of July activities. 🎆

    Oh I hear you about getting down to the floor and back up
    again. Ha! I should practice more often, but I’m afraid I’d be
    down there for the duration.


    • Hi Vee, I enjoyed reading your July 4th post. I have to remind my grands when they expect me to hop right up from the floor to follow them somewhere that it takes Baba a while to get up. They ask why? and I say, cuz she’s old!

  2. We had some tempura green beans recently which were delicious. I agree with your choices of things you’re too chicken to do. Yes, getting of the floor is not an easy task these days. Love your random photo. They are too cute!

  3. Ellen, your grandchildren are growing up so fast. I remember when each of them was born. Getting up and down from the floor or ground does present its challenges. 🙂

  4. Oh yes, getting up from the floor. In my head it’s a piece of cake, but in real life not so much lol. I am also thinking that saying I don’t eat fried foods anymore because they don’t agree with me makes me sound old too-ha! But it’s true! Enjoy the rest of your week!

  5. We, too, eat very little fried food these days. I haven’t had fried potatoes in a long time, but mmmm . . . And getting up out of the floor? A slow process. When the grands want to play a game, I always suggest that we play at the table!

    Love your grands’ faces as they delight in the fireworks display!
