Wednesday HodgePodge

1. "The cure for anything is salt water-tears, sweat, or the sea." (Isak Dinesan) Would you agree? Not really, though they could be helpful, to well-being.  Of the three, which has 'cured' you most recently?  Only sweat applies.  Haven't cried or been to the sea in a while.
2. What's something you can't eat without salt? Do you normally salt your food a lot, a little, or not at all? If it is processed or cooked by me, I salt very little and don't have it at hand.  I really need a little salt when making something really bland like rice or oatmeal. Sometimes, I really crave salty, but usually things are too salty for me.

3. Sands of time, bury your head in the sand, built on sand, or draw a line in the sand...which sandy phrase could best be applied to something in your life right now? At my age, it is the sands of time. 
The grandsons are growing so fast and time is passing in a wink.

4. A favorite book, movie, or song with an island setting or theme? Pride and Prejudice, set in England. Covers book and film.

5. Yesterday-did you run your day or did it run you? How so?
Oh it really ran me. Mr BC is going to have a prostate procedure, this Thursday and we had 2 doctor's appointment on Monday, When we got back we had a little lunch, and I took the dogs for a walk.   
When I got home, one of the doctor's office, called, and we had to go to the hospital to get a blood transfusion....though they call it an infusion now days
Mr BC has been suffering from very low blood count.  We were there so long waiting, that I went home to let the dogs out and feed them.  When I got's about a 20 minute trip, both ways, Mr BC was pink and rosy. He is very perky today and breathing easier.  But it was sure a long day.

6. You're on an island holiday. Will I most likely find you parked in a beach chair, shopping in town, on the back of a jet ski, or snorkeling off the back of a catamaran?  Maybe shopping and then sailing  on the catamaran or a glass bottom boat.

7. What do you think we humans most take for granted?
  Good health.
8. Insert your own random thought here. I cannot understand why some women of.... generation are so upset about the Women's March. They had good goals, and it was peaceful.....

"We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families - recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country."

Oh, yeah it's because of: "the rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us." The Women's March on Washington.

  1. I'm feeling the sands of time too, It's tuff getting on in years. Everything moves faster and I'm moving much slower! Love the photo of your daughter at the march!

  2. The older you get the faster the sands of time go. Glad Mr. BC is feeling better, will pray that his procedure goes well.

  3. The older you get the faster the sands of time go. Glad Mr. BC is feeling better, will pray that his procedure goes well.

  4. Ha! That's the one thing I skip the salt Margaritas. Hope all continues well for your Mr. BC

  5. I hope your hubby continues to feel better, and things will go well with his procedure, on Thursday. (I'm wondering if it's the same one my hubby recently had)

    I totally agree with your answer to #7.

    Take care,
    Kathy (Reflections)

  6. Grandkids sure do bring the whole passing of time thing to the forefront, but I wouldn't have it any other way!

    Hope your Hubby feels better.

  7. I am glad that Mr. BC got to be pink and rosy again. Anemia is no fun at all. I hated the feeling that I was going to fall every time I stood up when I had severe anemia. It can be very scary. I will continue to pray for you and Mr. BC, for you both to be completely healed and fully restored. Have a blessed week!

  8. You've got me thinking about a few things now... especially salt.

    Best wishes to Mr BC for his 'procedure'.

  9. Hi Katie!! I agree about the march. Many people didn't understand the meaning of it. All of my friends that went are glad they did and met a lot of great people. Have a great week!!

  10. I hope your husband is feeling better today. I used to eat a lot more salt, but the less I use the less I crave it. My bp is on the high side, so probably a good thing. Have a nice weekend!

  11. When I crave salty I will eat Salt and Vinegar chips. Keeping Mr. BC in my prayers. Thank you for stopping over last week.
