Jenny Louise Marie Hey there friends!  How is your week so far?  We’ve made it to hump day…that means it’s an easy downhill to the weekend.  My week has been full of meetings, running here and there, and putting in lots of miles on the bike. It’s a mystery to me how hard I can work out and still not have weight fall off!  Can anyone else relate?  It is so frustrating!  However, you’re not hear for that rant.  Today is Hodgepodge day.  The day where I link up with From This Side of the Pond and answer this week’s random questions.  However, my computerRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Holy Cow!  It’s Wednesday night (again) and that means it’s time to link up with From This Side of the Pond for this week’s edition of Hodgepodge.  I always wonder what each week’s questions will bring and if I’ll be able to come up with an answer.  At one point, I wanted to be clever in my answers.  Now, I just try to get them answered and posted on time. 🙂  Clever seems to be a bit out of reach currently.  In any case, I am happy to join in the fun and see how everyone answers these questions. 1. What’s somethingRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Good morning friends!  How are you?  I have to tell you, this Hodgepodge post almost didn’t make it.  It was almost deleted half way done because I couldn’t find the time to finish it.  Life is busy!  But, here I am linking up again for this week’s Hodgepodge with From This Side of the Pond.  Better late than never, right?   Anyway, it is Thursday and I am excited because that means it’s football night for son #3.  He is happy that he will be getting a lot of playing time and I will be holding my breath as he  tackles andRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Hello friends.  How are you?  I am settling into a new year at school and feel like I have 1,832 things on my to-do list.  Between work, son #3’s football schedule, and trying to fit in time to post here, it’s go, go, go all the time!  It’s hard re-adjusting to this routine.  Still, there is something so hopeful about starting a fresh, new year.  Do you agree?  Anyway, it has been a while since I have participated in the weekly Hodgepodge from From This Side of the Pond.  I am happy to re-join in the fun.  If you’d like to checkRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Hi there!  How’s your week?  I’ve been busy preparing for a new school year and tonight I am hosting my book club.  This meant tackling a couple of craft projects, which I will share later.  I’m a little late to this week’s Hodgepodge link-up, but I’m still going to join in the fun with Joyce from From This Side of the Pond.  So, are you ready for this week’s Hodgepodge q and a? 1. Do your actions match your words? Elaborate. Gosh, I hope so!  However, I guess you never know who’s watching and what they’re thinking.  I do try to liveRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Hi there friends.  How are you and how’s your week?  I have discovered a Netflix show this past week that I have binge watched it for HOURS.  I could be ashamed at this blatant waste of time, but hey…it’s the end of my summer and I’m soaking it in.  Have you watched Bloodline?  It’s one of those you can’t stop watching.  Check it out.  Anyway, today I’m sharing this week’s Hodgepodge questions. You know, where I link up with Joyce from From This Side of the Pond and other bloggers to answer some random questions.  So let’s jump right in. 1. DoRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Hi there.  Glad you’re here!  We are mid week for those of you still working hard every day.  For those of you on summer break, like me, it’s another day in paradise. 🙂  So, what have you been up to?  I’ve been busy on a few project around the house, which you will be seeing soon.  I’ve also been fabric shopping so that I can complete my master makeover that I started here.  That means more projects are on my horizon before we head back to school.  In the meantime, I’m linking up with Joyce from From This Side of the PondRead More →
