Wednesday Hodgepodge - 07/17/2018

Sitting on the porch answering random questions about everything under the sun….

Joyce asks the questions.
We answer the questions.

From this Side of the Pond

1. I feel most energized when I ...

...spend time outdoors.  I love a walk in the woods, playing is the cool mountain creeks, planting colorful flowers, and visi outdoor festivals.  Also, a day at the beach is my happy place!

2. Where were you ten years ago?

I lived in Midtown Atlanta and I was still working in the Corporate World as a Corporate Project Manager for the Home Depot. Life was very structured and overbooked most of the time. I had just started making beaded jewelry as a stress relief activity. Life was very different from the life I live today.

3. July 17th is World Emoji Day. Do you use emojis? Which one's your favorite? Your most used?

I only use the happy or sad emojis; I don't use them very often, not really a fan of emojis.

4. What song would you put on a wedding DO NOT PLAY list?

On our wedding no playlist - The Chicken Dance!  I got married late in life and didn't want to see a bunch of middle aged arms (including mine) flapping on the dance floor, ugh!

5. What deserves less of your attention? More of your attention?

Less of my attention: social media...I spend to much time at the computer.  More of my attention: Healthy eating...I tend to grab whatever is easy and close at hand, it is not usually good for me.

6.  Insert your own random thought here.

 Monday I start a part time job at a non-profit sanctuary for chimpanzees that have spent their whole life in research facilities. It is a 200 acre natural environment in the North GA Mountains.  I will work as Donation Coordinator, processing the donations and sending letters of appreciation.  I will blog more about the new job at Project Chimps soon.

  2. LOL! Middle-aged flapping arms indeed! (I have those.) Your new job sounds like a great opportunity. I love being outdoors, too. In fact, the kids and I just returned from 5 hours at the lake. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on my Hodgepodge post!
    Laughter and Consistency

  3. Enjoyed all your answers. Love the picture in your #1. So beautiful. Hope you enjoy your retirement and do really well with your jewelry business. Have a great weekend.

  4. No, nothing pretty about middle-aged flapping arms for sure. Your new job sounds so interesting. We have a Chimp Haven here where I live. I have never been out there but we have made the news with the oldest chimp having a baby a couple years ago. This is the link to the website if you are interested:
