Happy Hodgepodge

Good Wednesday morning!
Here we are just finishing the first week of January 2021.
Nothing new, huh?
Here is my Wednesday Hodgepodge.
Click the picture below to find more people.

1. What advice would you give yourself as we begin this new year? 

 Just last night, I read these words in my Bible from Job 28:28“The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding.”   My first thought was, YES!  That is my verse for 2021.

2. If you could throw a themed party for yourself what would the theme be? 

I certainly liked Joyce's idea of a British tea (in England!).  I'm thinking that I will plan a lovely tea this spring, invite my two girls and grandkids, and serve it in our back garden.

3. Tell us where you were and something about what life was like when you were 20- 21.

At that age, I was in college in Southern California.  Reading and reading and writing papers.  I was also singing-- college trio, college choir, college small ensemble.  Always singing with my two best singing buddies (our trio).

4. What's on the menu at your house this week? 

Leftovers planned overs and more leftovers planned overs.

5. What should you do more of this year? Less of? 

There will be more and more gardening this year.  I have a 'blank space' in my new home to create a garden and I'm excited about that.  We also hope to be able to travel to new places.  

Less of?  Hopefully, less junk food.  I don't eat much of it but I've gotten a bit lax about my food choices.

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

I keep a yearly list of the books I have read.  I also keep a list of the knitting projects I have finished.  Does anyone else do this or something similar?

I keep a list of my books which was quite long for 2020. I don't keep a list of craft projects because I can count them on one hand - 3 new blankets for the 3 new grandbabies.

I usually track my books on the Goodreads and I just started tracking my yarn creations, with what and how I made them so if I want to make them again, I'll know what I did. That is an excellent verse to remember.

I do keep a list of the books I read.
My first book to read this year is Anxious People.. author Fredrik Backman.

That's a great Bible verse. Your garden should be fun! No I don't keep any lists like that but I like that you do.

Great verse for 2021!
That's a fun plan to have a tea for your girls!
And then there's that garden space. That will be good to see what comes up and what you'll enjoy adding to your meals!

Stacy said...

That is a great verse and yes, there should be less junk food in my year, too. I think most of us have gotten kind of lazy this year.

I keep up with the books I've read via a "log" through our local library's website. I've always loved to read but I've read more than ever this past year!

I track my books through Goodreads and love the system. I like being able to open the app when I'm telling someone about a good book, but can't remember the title. Here's to more travel, or any travel!, in this new year.
