Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Spring is in the air (at least in my neck of the woods) and the birds are singing...what's your favorite bird?
I would have to say humming birds.

2. Speaking of you tweet? If you do share your screen name and we'll come flocking to your twitter site. Even if you don't let's all pretend here that we do-in 140 characters or less, sum up your week so far.
I don't tweet.  My week--What a hectic rewarding week full of transition, treasures, and trauma.

3. It's been reported recently that employers are not only viewing the facebook pages of potential hires but they're also requesting your facebook password to have a look at what you've kept from public view. What say you?
I think that that that is invading our privacy.  I don't have anything worth looking at, but it's just the principle of the thing.

4. It's April and you know what that means-Major League Baseball is back in action. What's your favorite baseball themed movie? If that's too hard what's your favorite sports themed movie?
I'm not much into sports.   But I did enjoy "Angels in the Outfield.
5. Something else this season brings-asparagus. Yes please or no thanks? If it's yes please what's your favorite way to have it prepared?
I LOVE asparagus!  Favorite way--grilled with a spritz of olive oil, and a dusting of sea salt.

6. What drives you? (Don't you love how I sandwiched that one in between asparagus and jugglers?)
I am driven by my passion to help people.  I feel that it is my mission in life to share in some degree what I have been so richly blessed with.  Now, I'm not rich, but I can share my home, my wisdom, my faith.

7. April 18th is International Jugglers Day...can you juggle?
Of course, I juggle keeping up my house, raising my grandson, my church activities, my blogging, and my art.  If you meant throwing things and catching them--not a chance.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

This week I am busy preparing for Bible Study at my house.  We are going to eat out on my new sun porch.


  1. Enjoyed your answers. I would like to know what subject you are covering at your Bible Study? I have a Woman's Bible Study every Tuesday evening in my home We are currently reading Kerry Kirkwood's The Power of Blessing.

  2. Hummingbirds got my vote, too! Love them! Enjoy your new sun porch!

  3. I just love a screened in porch-that looks so inviting! I've been in a Beth Moore study all year, Jesus the One and Only...we are wrapping up next week and then a luncheon the week after. I really miss it in the summertime.

  4. I haven't out anything on the web that would incriminate me, but it might be cause to discriminate against me. Really, if they look at you Facebook or any other page, and you don't talk about or list where you work, isn't that enough to know you are smart enough to only put your laundry on the line after it's been washed?

    Angels in the Outfield was a cute movie!!

  5. I love hummingbirds also. Your new screened in porch looks great.

  6. Hello Marti, I came across your blog from a friend of ours, Chatty Crone (Sandie). I'm so glad she has your blog button on her site. I love what you have shared on your profile, and you have a lot of inspirational posts. I'm your newest follower and would like to invite you to join me also. I look forward to getting to know you! My favourite bird here in Australia is a A Noisy Friarbird, which I have fondly named Cheeky Bob. If you would like to read about Cheeky Bob here's the link... and

    Have a great day new friend! GOD BLESS!

    PS: I've snagged your blog button to add to my blogspot too. Thank you :)

  7. I agree with you! I love asparagus in the oven with the little sea salt and olive oil.

    I also disagree with people having to give out their facebook information.

    Love, sandie

  8. Congratulations on your new sun porch! I love a screened porch, and you are so kind to host Bible Study. It can sometimes be hard to find a place. :)

  9. Yay on the new sun porch ... and to have Bible Study out there - awesome!
