Jenny Louise Marie Hey there!  How are you?  I’m good and SERIOUSLY looking forward to next week.  A week away from school and a week that includes a lot of Christmas decorating!  Honestly, it’s so close I can almost feel it.  However, today is Wednesday and that means it’s Hodgepodge day with From This Side of the Pond.  You know the drill.  It’s random questions that some blogger buddies all answer and share with each other and our readers.  So, maybe these will help you get to know me a little better.  Ready? 1. What takes you out of your comfort zone? Walking in toRead More →

Jenny Louise Marie Hi there.  If you are new around here, welcome!  I’m so glad you are stopping by today.  You might be visiting because today is Hodgepodge day.  If you’re new around here, Hodgepodge day is the day where I join with other bloggers to answer the questions from From This Side of the Pond.  It’s kind of fun and random, but a great way to get to know each other.  So, without further ado, let’s get right to this week’s questions. 1.  In a rut, in a jam, in the groove, out of synch, off balance, out of touch…which saying best fits someRead More →

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 →

Wednesday Wonderings - stuff that's on my mind and making me go hmm...

Jenny Louise Marie Hi there!  I’m so glad you dropped by today.  So, how’s your week going?  I am knee-deep in back to school. 🙂  I must confess that it is Tuesday evening and I am just now starting this Wednesday Wondering post.  It seems more and more I am having a hard time fitting it in.  I’m not sure if it’s I’m doing less thinking or just having difficulty managing my time.  Can you relate? Regardless, I have a few things on my mind this week so it’s time to start a new rambling.  I hope you’ll leave me a comment below and shareRead More →
