End of year Hodgepodge

The folks at From This Side of the Pond have a meme called Wednesday Hodgepodge. Here's my entry for today.
  1. Share a favorite memory/moment from the week of Christmas.

    Gathering, cooking, eating and sharing with my family on Christmas day.

  2. If someone wrote a book about your life based on the past year, what genre would it fall under? What would the title be?

    Self help book based on Richard Rohr's "Falling Upward".
    It would be titled "Stumbling Upward".

  3. What made you feel patriotic this year?

    Shows and stories about how America is caring for our wounded soldiers.
    Also, watching American Sniper and seeing the bravery of our troops.

  4. What experience from this past year would you like to do all over again?

    Exploring downtown KC and trying new lunch spots close to our loft.

  5. What song lyric sums up or is a reflection of your 2015?

    You can't always get what you want. But if you try sometime, you just 'might' find, you get what you need.

  6. On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate 2015? (10=stellar) Why?

    5.5 - more good than bad. Not ready to commit to a 6 at this time.

  7. What part of the upcoming year are you most excited about?

    Spring. Love the walkable weather in downtown KC,

  8. Insert your own random thought here.

    Life is too short to drink bad coffee.
Thanks for reading. Join the fun at This Side of the Pond.


  1. Visiting from the Hodgepodge. Nice random thought but I'd have to substitute tea for the coffee. Happy new year.

    1. My wife would agree with that Wendy. Happy 2016.

  2. Life this year has been a real hodge podge. Lots of good and some really difficult spots along the way.
    Praying for a better 2016 and that I learn to look for the Lord in the small things. there are joys and miracles everywhere. I just need to look and be aware of them.
    Happy New Year to you and Ann.

    1. So true Sue. Hodgepodge is a good word for 2015. Happy 2016 to you and Dave.

  3. I have come visiting from the link-up. Great Hodgepodge, Bob. Your #5 has made stop for a moment for thoughts! How very true!! Have a very Happy New Year!

  4. Glad you joined in. Your right, American Sniper was so great....good answer. Like your song choice too. I keep telling my husband Mark that I want to live where we can leave our place and walk to nearby places to eat and shop. Of course I would also like to live in an old farm house!!! Happy New Year......

    1. Find a place like that in Sunny California and we will be your neighbors Debby! ツ

      Happy 2016!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Mary.

      Starting the day with a bad cup of coffee is a bad way to start the day.

  6. You picked some great lyrics! American Sniper was one of those movies that really stayed with me. Happy new year to you and thanks for joining the Hodgepodge!
