Wednesday Hodgepodge with an Aura

  1. What would you say is your strongest sense? My sense of smell has not diminished as I have grown older it seems to be as strong as ever.  My hearing is poorer than it was, though Mr BC says I am not hard of hearing, rather hard of listening.  I can tune things out well.

2. Do you believe in the idea of a 'sixth sense'? Why or why not? I suppose it might exist.  I have never known someone who has it.  My cousin claimed it and maybe she did, she read people's auras and such.  I really don't know, she was very sincere she passed away last year.

3. When do you most feel like a slave to time? Explain. I guess we are all a slave to time as our lives are passing by too quickly.  I have never really felt that I was a slave to time but I am realistic when I say that my time is getting shorter. 

4. Have you ever worked in a restaurant? How would you rate the experience? If you could own a restaurant what kind would it be? I have never had that particular experience, although I once worked in a convalescent hospital handing out trays and emptying the dishwasher.  I don't think I would want to own a restaurant, I do like Mexican food.

5. Ever traced your family tree? Share something interesting you learned there. I am on Ancestry.com and I have traced some of my side back to the late  1700's.  We have been here a while, as so far, I have not traced anyone back to immigration. I am going to get Mr BC a DNA test for a gift one of these days.

6. What did your childhood bedroom look like? It was yellow, with cute curtains that my mother made.  When I was younger I shared with my brother, but they added a room for him as we grew.  I had matching bedroom set with a desk and 2 dressers and a double bed, I also had a record player in there and of course my radio, which replaced the toys when I was a teen.

7. Anyone who knows me knows I love my dogs like they are people, because of course, they are.

8. Insert your own random thoughts here. 

I take a nap most days, I can't nap in a recliner or chair, so I lie down in the bedroom, usually it's a short nap, but when I nap too long I often think it is morning.  It is amazing to me then, that Mr BC is up and awake before me.....never happens, then I remember what year it is...... We have room darkening shades, that is why it is so nice for napping.
Happens every time I watch videos with the Grandsons. When they were small we use to watch a Serbian kids show called Kolibre, in Serbian.  What little Serbian I know is from that show and Peppa Pig (Serb translation).  Son in law only let them watch video....they still don't have a TV connected to cable etc... translated to Serbian, though now that they are older they watch videos in English as well.  They are both fluent in two languages.

   Lastly, for your viewing pleasure a Baby Hippo!



  1. The way you described naps is how I feel if I lay back down in the morning instead of just staying up. Love the idea of boiling orange peels and cinnamon!

  2. Hi Katie. Thanks for stopping by my HP today and leaving a comment! I enjoyed reading your answers! I'm looking forward to being able to sneak in a nap now and then. Counting the months to retirement!!

  3. ADORABLE BABY HIPPO! Have a great day! Fun reading your Hodgepodge today, thank you!

  4. Thanks for the tip about the orange peel and cinnamon. I'm going to try it!
    I always look forward to my afternoon naps :)
    Your dog acts like a person:) My daughter's dog is the same way. He's considered to be a family member, and he knows it!

  5. All pets are people. I cannot understand those who can't see that. Have a great day.

  6. Pets aren't people??? Anyway, loved your post and laughed out loud at the Sesame Street poster. How many of us have been in that situation. LOL

  7. Of course pets are people, too. :)

    I love the Sesame Street image. It made me laugh. It also reminded me of a time that the kids and I needed to go get their daddy from school. The baby child didn't want to go (of course, we couldn't leave her behind, she was only 2!). She hopped into her bed. I kept trying to coax her to come on. She wasn't coming. I pretended that I was leaving. As I closed her door, I heard her singing the Sunny Day song from Sesame Street. Ultimately, I had to just pick her up and carry her out against her will, but that is a fun memory. She didn't have a care in the world. :)

    I bet the cinnamon and orange peels smell wonderful.

    I am on Ancestry.com, too. Do you also have Newspapers.com? It is a great resource! I have found so much through old newspapers that I never knew existed. It is wonderful!

    Have a blessed day!

  8. How cool to have part of your family tree traced back so far!!! Thanks for visiting me earlier!!! :)
