This is a weekly meme where Joyce asks the questions and bloggers answer.

(1) Elizabeth Lawrence is quoted as saying `Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn." So have you done just that? And what did you leave undone in order to do so?

A- I have not sat still just to watch the leaves turn. I have admired the different colors from a distance and while I swept the sidewalk.

(2) Since we're talking turning...what's one thing you feel your doing `every time you turn around`?

A- I seem to be cooking or washing dishes the most. I enjoy cooking, not so much washing dishes.

(3) How hard is it for you to `turn the other cheek`?

A- I'm doing a study on our words and I hope some of the positive qualities are rubbing off on me.

(4) When did you last turn a drawer, your car, a room, or your entire house upside down looking for something? Did you find it?

A- I honestly don't remember.

(5) `One good turn deserves another`...were you most recently on the giving or receiving end of that sentiment?

A- both

(6) Red, yellow, and orange are the colors are fall. Also the colors of fruit. If you were permitted only one color of fruit in your diet, which would you choose? This question isn't as easy as it sounds, at least not for Joyce.

A- I would pick orange as the color and orange as the fruit.

(7) The Hunt for Red October  , October Sky , Halloween  ...which October film is your favorite?

A- I haven't seen any of these. I don't like scare films, so if I were to watch one it would be October Sky.

To join Wednesday Hodgepodge just click the above button.
This is a weekly meme where Joyce asks the questions and bloggers answer.

(1) What's your favorite time of day? Why?
A- Mornings..I am more alert and that's when I have my quiet time.

(2) Waffle iron, toaster, coffee maker, mixer, blender....which small appliance would you say most needs replacing in your house?
A- It's a toss between the toaster and the coffee maker.

(3) It's National Grouch Day (October 15)...what's something that makes you feel grouchy?
A- When I have a headache, if I didn't get enough sleep, or if I'm accused of doing something I didn't do.

(4) Ever been to Canada? Is that a country you'd like to visit? According to Trip Advisor, the top ten best destinations in Canada are - Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City, Victoria, Calgary, Niagara on the Lake, Niagara Falls, Whistler, and Halifax. Which city would you most like to see?
A- I have never been to Canada. However, I would like to visit. From the pictures on Trip Advisor Vancouver looks the most appealing to me.

(5) What was your favorite food (or one of your favorites) when you were a child? Is that still a favorite?
A- I loved macaroni and cheese (what kid doesn't. Right?) I still enjoy it as long as it is creamy and not dry.

(6) Do you cry easily?
A- Well, I'm told I carry my feelings on my sleeve. So if the case warrants it yes I do.

(7) Have you started your (gasp) Christmas shopping? If so when, and how much? If not, when will you even begin thinking about it?
A- We have not started our Christmas shopping. Hubby can cash in on his Christmas fund in November. We have started thinking about it and I know what I would like to get. In August I bought my first Lodge Cast Iron Skillet from Cracker Barrel, and I love it! So I would love to get more Lodge Cast Iron products.
