Isaiah 6:8

8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?”And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

Summer Time Summer Time

It's that time again. Here are the questions for this week's Wednesday Hodgepodge. Read my answers to the questions and if you want to play around answer them on your own blog, then hop over to Joyce's blog to add your link to the party. See you there!

1. The first day of summer rolls in later this week. What are ten things you'd put on your list of  quintessential summer activities? Will you try to manage all ten this summer?  I am teacher and for me I have to pack all I want to do into the 10 weeks I have before school starts back.  1.  I went to the beach for a week.  I love Panama City Beach.  2.  I attended Core Academy and got to hear Ron Clark from Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta at JSU.  3.  I earned some more hours attending a diabetes learning class at the Central Office.  I am trying to earn enough hours for Flex Days.  Hours that we did during the summer helps us get some days off....Whoooopie.  4.  I just got back from my 45th class reunion in West Palm Beach with my best friend Susan.  It was great fun.  5.  I am going to paint bookshelves and ready two rooms for the new school year.  6.  I want to go to the ARK in Kentucky....7.  I want to take another trip to see my friend Susan in Knoxville.  8.  I am going to organize my craft/junk room.  9.  I wish I could go to Moldova to see my daughter...bur with my health conditions I am afraid to be that far away from my maybe next summer.  10.  I am going to paint some folk art pieces for my classrooms and learn to quilt.

2. Do you collect seashells when you're at the beach? What do you do with them once you get them home? What's your favorite place to comb for seashells? How many of these 'best beaches for hunting seashells' have you visited? Which one would you most like to visit?  I have never been to Galveston, Calvert Cliffs State Park, Jeffery's Bay, and Lanai Hawaii  and would love to go to any or all of thee..  I love collecting sea shells and have them in a large glass jar.  My favorite places are Shell Island, Sanibel, and Captiva...which are all in Florida, and Edisto in South Carolina.

 3. At a snail's pace, shell out money, come out of your shell, go back into your shell, drop a bombshell, happy as a clam, clam up...which 'shell' phrase could most recently be applied to some event or circumstance in your life? Explain.  Happy as a clam because I got to spend a few days with old classmates and my best friend in West Palm. We spent most of the day Friday having lunch at Russo's sub(an old hangout), and viewing how things have changed....which was a great deal!
4. What summer activity do you dislike? Why?  Yard work because it is hot!

5. What's something you see as quickly becoming obsolete? Does that bother you?  Reading a REAL book.  Everything today is in e-book format.  I love the smell of a REAL book...and it bothers me that you don't see people reading them anymore.

 6. Insert your own random thought here. I got to spend Wednesday night though Sunday morning with an old friend from my school days.  We have remained friends for a long time and when we are together it is like we have never been apart.  Do you have a friend like that????  Susan and I have been friends since 1959...almost 60 years!  Amazing isn't it.  The picture is Susan, Chet (one of our dearest friends) and me.

One of these days I will have to try those beaches in Florida! Glad you had a nice time with your friends in West Palm. I agree with you on the books. I've always enjoyed holding a book in my hand. This time in Florida I, for the first time, am reading a book on my Kindle app on my tablet. I do have two dear friends from my school years but I don't get to meet up with them very often but when we do it is like no time has passed at all.
