Speaking of travel the photo above is of me behind the waterfall in the pool at our son’s Airbnb in Arizona a week ago, sigh.
Jo From This Side of the Pond has come up with the weekly questions for Wednesday Hodgepodge. Thank you, Jo! Click on over to join in on the fun.
1. Have you done more binge watching this past year than in ‘normal’ years? Any plans to break that habit in 2021? Tell us one or two shows you binged last year that you really liked.
Our satellite connection for tv and the internet is temperamental and works better some parts of the month over other times. When it is working well we’ll binge some of our favorite shows on Acorn or BritBox. Since many of the British seasons are 4 to 8 episodes it’s not tough to binge. We’ve enjoyed Murder in Paradise, and we always enjoy going back to Midsomer Murders and the Great British Baking Show. Murder in Paradise had a new season in 2020 and we binge watched it. We enjoy other shows like Endeavor and Vera, too. If in 2021 there are any new seasons of these shows we’ll watch them when the internet is working well.
2. January 26th is Australia Day. Have you ever visited or lived in Australia?
Have you ever tasted Vegemite, and if so what did you think?
No thank you.
Is a trip down under on your bucket list?
No and I’ll tell you why…it would take far too long on an airplane to get there. If I could afford business or first class with the opportunity to lie down flat for much of the trip I might consider it.
We answered a question about travel three months ago (the October 21st Hodgepodge), but let’s revisit now…where are you when it comes to planning or even imagining travel this year?
Our youngest niece on Dear’s side of the family is getting married on October 1st of this year in North Carolina. We are planning and imagining what a road trip from Washington State to North Carolina would look like with possible stops at some National Parks on the way. On the way back we are considering a route that would take us through Dallas to visit my youngest brother’s family then home via Colorado with a detour to some National Parks in Utah, Lord willing.
3. Something that zaps your energy?
Unconfessed sin, misunderstandings and confrontations.
Something that energizes you?
Planning a trip, Spring, having company.
4. On a scale of 1-10 what are your eating habits like these days? (1=all junk food all the time and 10= juicing every green thing in the frig)
Dear says, “we’ve been juicing all the junk food in the fridge”. Haha.
I’m gonna say we are a 5 in eating habits these days.
Healthiest meal you’ve eaten in the last week or so?
White meat chicken tacos with corn tortillas that weren’t fried with cabbage.
5. What’s your most often ‘Back in my day….’ thing to say?
Back in my day we did not have cell phones to call anyone.
This phrase comes up a lot, “well we didn’t have cell phones then”.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Psalm 39:1 (ESV)
Consider joining in for Truth from A to Z, a Bible verse challenge for Thursdays on my blog. Tomorrow we are on the letter R. You don’t need a blog for this challenge.
