It’s time for the Wednesday Hodgepodge with a set of questions set by Joyce From This Side of the Pond. This post comes with a health warning and a very random thought at the end.
1. What’s something you’d rate a 10/10? Tell us why.
Before I met my beloved I always said that I was never getting married with there being several reasons for this, including that I really didn’t think I’d ever find anyone to live up to my romantic dreams. Was I wrong!! Ken is a definite 10/10 for me (yes Ken, you are) and I can’t remember what it was like not to have him in my life. Admittedly no one in this world is perfect, but my beloved is perfect for me.
2. What job would you be terrible at? What makes you think so?
I asked my beloved this question and his response, I’d be a terrible spider hunter!! Is that even a job?
I know I would be a terrible waitress as I can be a little bit clumsy (see answer to #3). Picture customers with food tipped all over them and broken plates everywhere. I’d also be a dreadful vet nurse, purely because I’d want to take all the abandoned animals home with me.
3. When did you last take a fall? What’s something you’re falling for (in a good way) these days?
4. According to the Travel Channel here are some of America’s best fall festivals-
National Apple Harvest Festival (near Arendtsville PA, close to Gettysburg), Harvest on the Harbor (Portland Maine), German Village Festival (Columbus Ohio), Wellfleet Oyster Fest (Cape Cod), and Wine and Chile Fiesta (Santa Fe NM)
Have you ever been to any of the festivals listed? Which one appeals to you most? Does your hometown have any sort of fall celebration, and if so will you make it a point to attend?
We’ve never been to any of these festivals, but after checking out their websites, the one I would like to go to is the Harvest on the Harbor in Maine – it looks really interesting. We don’t have any specifically Autumn/Fall celebrations that I’m aware of, but I’m always on the lookout for interesting things going on around the highlands.
5. What is your goodbye message to summer?
My message for summer is that she needs to not be a stranger and to consider coming back earlier next year and to definitely stay for longer.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
It fascinates me how Highland Cows appeal to so many people, me included. Just along from our house is a field with three highland cows and it is in front of a large hotel, so regularly we see people trying to get photos of the cows. The day we stopped to have a chat and take some photos there was a tour bus drive past with the guide pointing at the field and everyone on that side of the bus pointing their cameras at the cows. I think it must be something about their fringes that make them look a bit like a giant soft toy.
What would your answers be to the questions, especially #2 – something to think about. Before you go, pop over to Joyce’s Blog to see what my fellow bloggers have come up with.
Until next time, be good, stay safe, and make sure you’re gentle with yourself this week.
