Wednesday Hodgepodge

This really looks like fun.  So I thought I'd give it a try.

What are three words you would use to describe your 2011?
God-Honoring (is that one word? LOL)

Do you like shrimp? What's your favorite way to have it prepared?
Love it!  I like it as Scampi, fried, sauteed, just about anyway I can get it.

  Is your house de-Christmased? If so, when did you tackle that job? If not, when will the decorations come down?
Yes!!  We put our Christmas decorations up the day after Thanksgiving, so when the day after Christmas rolls around I'm so ready for it all to go!

Do you like to watch scary movies?
I do not like horror movies, but do like mystery type of movies.

ice skating~sledding~ skiing~snowboarding...of the four listed which wintertime activity do you most enjoy?
Sledding...although since my back injury I have not been able to do much of it.

Did you have a childhood hideout? Describe it.
Yes.  When we lived on the farm I had many places to hide out.  Most of which were trees.  When we moved to the village we had a nice shed out back that I use to sit in.  My sister's and I use to play "Little House on the Prairie" in it.

What's a place or space that motivates you?
We have a living history museum near us that we visit often.  Seeing how they lived back in the 1800's really motivates me in many areas.  Housekeeping, gardening ect.

Insert your own random thought here. 
This is a stove from the museum I was talking about.  It always reminds me to keep things simple.  We are so spoiled now-a-days.  Yet all we do is complain about what we do not have. 

I'm linking up with From the Side of the Pond for this meme.

Welcome to Hodgepodge. I agree with your point in number 8. We seems to be so busy with all of our modern stuff that we forget that life used to be a lot harder, and what we now consider a basic living necessity wasn't available even 50 years ago.

My house is de-Christmased, except for the boxes full of the stuff we took down, are still sitting out waiting to go back int he attic.

I am following your blog now, I don't know how I missed it before!

A lot of my answers are the same! ;)

We really are spoiled. Yet we get so complacent and focused on our own little world, we forget what others are going through, or have gone through. I'm working on being more thankful and finding things each day to praise God for. It really helps me to not be ungrateful!
