The Wednesday Hodgepodge is hosted by Joyce From This Side of the Pond
1. August 24th is National Waffle Day…what’s something you’ve ‘waffled’ on recently?
My son has Cerebral Palsy, and goes to various therapies during the week. I was looking at his schedule for fall, and it just seemed really overwhelming for him. We went back and forth about pulling him out of speech for a while, to give him time to adjust to starting school again, his new increase in meds, and to just sort of balance out his schedule. This was a very big decision; we don’t like to discontinue any of his therapies but we ended up putting speech on hold for a while. He is talking a lot at home, and is constantly adding words and putting together longer and longer sentences, while of course he goes to speech and doesn’t talk at all. Kids, I tell you. This was a tough choice for us though!
2. Do you like waffles? Make your own or ‘leggo my Eggo? Any favorite toppings or add-ins? Waffles or pancakes-which do you prefer? I am not a big waffle fan, but Wyatt loves them. He loves homemade, Eggo, it doesn’t matter to him, as long as it has butter on it. I am a pancake fan though. I love them. I love them just plain, with syrup, with jam on them, with cinnamon or chocolate chips or blueberries or strawberries – I love all the pancakes. My husband has sort of perfected his own recipe and they are delicious!
3. Do you have any momentos from this summer (or past summers)? What do you do with them?
I am always saving little mementos! This summer I have more nature based mementos than anything else though. I put those on our little nature shelf. I also try to a buy book from a local author when on vacation, or an art print.
4. One thing you’d like to do before summer ends?
I would like to go rock hunting before the lakes get way too cold!
5. Life is too short to___________________________________.
Worry about matching your socks. Just throw them in the drawer and wear them all mismatched!
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Last week I posted a video of lasagna being made in a cast iron skillet. I could not get it out of my mind so the other night I made a cheesy ravioli and sausage bake in our skillet (on and in the stove though, not an open fire). It was fantastic, and only took about thirty minutes!
