Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. What's the last thing you did that someone else thought was super? 

  Hmm, it was probably some dessert that I created and everyone loved, if you all haven't noticed yet, I love to bake.
2. The last thing you ate that tasted superb? 

  The last thing that I ate that tasted superb was a tiny batch of peanut butter and raisin oatmeal cookies that I made last night on a whim. Lately I have been loving to invent random recipes. I always make sure that they are single serving size that way I don't have to worry that it won't get eaten if no one likes it!
3. Supersensitive, superstitious, superwoman, superambitious, supercilious, supervisor, superficial...pick a super word from the list and tell us how it relates to your life in some way recently or currently. 

  Sighs, I definitely fall under the super-ambitious list. If anyone has seen my to-do list, they can easily tell you just how busy I am. I love busyness though, it makes me feel happy.
4. Do you love easily? If you're comfortable doing so, explain why you think that is. 

  Sure, I love easily.  I am comfortable in doing so and the reason behind it is most likely because I've always been surrounded with love from my youngest days onward.
5. Valentine's Day lands on a Tuesday this year. Will you mark the day in some way? If you're celebrating with a dinner out somewhere will it be on Tuesday or will you celebrate over the weekend? 

  I LOVE Valentine's Day and this year I planned a special day. I'll probably share more on that later but I can't now since it's supposed to be a surprise and my family reads my posts. This Friday my home school group is celebrating Valentine's Day and I can hardly wait, they are not only handing out Valentines, but they are having a wide array of sweet treats too, and really, who cares about getting a Valentine when you can eat dessert?!
6. What's something you are loving right now? 

   I love my recipe box, and my favorite black pen, I was busily copying down a bunch of recipes I want to try soon.
7. Write a three word (or less) phrase you'd like to see on a Valentine candy heart.  

8.  Insert your own random thought here. 

  Yesterday I was in charge of tending to our furnace since Eldon was going to be painting at the shop with Dad. Now I have always been terrified of letting the fire burn out. So, I diligently took care of the fire. I opened the draft, I kept the draft open, I poked at the furnace, I shook the grate, I heaped bountiful shovels full of coal onto the fire, I clomped around down in our basement wearing my Dad's boots because I didn't have any shoes down there (I consequentially felt quite petite), I scrubbed coal dust off my hands multiple times, and by the time my Dad came home that evening it was almost eighty degrees inside and we were all unbelievably hot. On the bright side, I didn't let the fire burn out!


  1. I think the corner where my chair was in was 90º (Pun intended, though it seemed even warmer than the rest of the house.)

  2. Enjoy your Valentine surprises! That's sweet and I'm sure they'll be appreciated. Good for you keeping the house warm : )

  3. Dropping in as your Hodgepodge neighbour. Enjoy your Valentine's day. The fire story made me smile.

  4. I wish I could have chosen superambitious, I have a cold right now and don't think I could eeke out the slightest bit of ambition.

  5. are a great fire tender for sure! I loved Valentine's day in my youth. I think desserts are always a great choice! visiting from hodgepodge!

  6. Adding peanut butter to oatmeal raisin cookies sound delicious!

  7. sounds like you were a SUPER furnace person!!

  8. We have a wood furnace in the basement with forced hot air, ductwork, etc. that heats our entire house. My hubby works long hours away from home, so tending that beast is my responsibility. I am somewhat tired of wrangling wood, but I'll probably be doing it for a few years yet!

  9. Peanut butter and oatmeal cookies sound delicious. Good job with the furnace. I wouldn't have a clue what to do!
