Hot hot Hodgepodge!

1. How often do you check the weather? How do you check the weather?
I generally check the weather on Saturday when I'm picking out the kid's outfits for the week and putting them in their cubbies.  It doesn't always work, but it helps me plan for...I was gonna say RAIN but I'm not sure I remember what that is anymore!  I usually check the weather via my Kindle Fire..."Ruby."
2. Since this is volume 84 of the Wednesday Hodgepodge, and since I got married in 1984, and since I'm attending a wedding this weekend it only seems right to post something related here.
"Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance. If the dispositions of the parties are ever so well known to each other or ever so similar beforehand, it does not advance their felicity in the least. They always continue to grow sufficiently unlike afterwards to have their share of vexation; and it is better to know as little as possible of the defects of the person with whom you are to pass your life."
Agree or Disagree. Why? Hmmm...interesting.  I think I shall agree just because I think the majority will disagree.  I think long engagements are not only tedious but can be dangerous to the purity of the couple.  I think if you know the "important" factor (ie. their commitment to Christ) you can be assured that whatever trials and vexations you might share in marriage you will stay together and work them out by God's grace. 
3. Do you like to dance? Have you ever taken dance lessons?
I enjoyed "shaking my groove thang" at my brother's wedding....and slow dancing with my husband.  I understand the reason dancing has been banned from certain religious circles...and although I agree that certain sexually provocative dancing is wrong...I do not think dancing is forbidden in the Bible...(um, David danced before the Lord in his undies) so...we're probably missing out somehow in our worship.  Anyhew...moving on...I learned some choreography when I was a music student...and took a swing dancing lesson once. 
4. Fresh from the oven peach pie or home made peach ice cream? Pick one.
Neither...can I just have a fresh peach...dribbling down my chin?  Okay, ok...Jo's rules...peach ice cream...I'll force it down somehow!  LOL!
5. Should people accept unfairness and learn to make the best of it?
Life's not fair.  John 16:32-33, “Behold, an hour is coming, and has already come, for you to be scattered, each to his own home, and to leave Me alone; and yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me. “These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world.
6. The top five all time summer movie blockbusters (released between May and August and grossing at least 100 million dollars) are-Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Star Wars (the original), Ghostbusters, and ET. Which one's your favorite?
Star Wars
7. If given the chance, would you like to visit the moon?
Er, well...there's not a lot to do up there...and I'm not much for camping out.  Hello?  Space travel...OF COURSE, I want to try that someday!!...but I'm thinking...probably not happening!
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I'm thinking it's sort of hilarious...after having triple digits here in Indiana for a few weeks...the upper 80s feel cool and relaxing.  Something has happened to my blood.  I used to tease my grandparents when they started wintering in FL that their blood was thinning.  Does that really happen??  WEIRD!

I think our bodies do adjust to where we live which is why people in Houston cope with the heat better and people in Alaska cope with the cold better. All those years in England made me more cold natured and the heat really bothered me upon returning to a humid climate. Now I'm used to it again.

Enjoy your day-stay cool : )

I mentioned on fb that it's amazing how comfortable the mid-90's feel after a few days of +100's!

A fellow Hoosier (Boilermaker, actually) enjoying the 'cool' 80 degree weather. It sure has been hot around here! Glad your little ones were able to cool off in the sprinkler.
Have a cool Wednesday. :)

I'm reading Not By Chance by Layton Talbert on the providence of God, and I was reading just this morning about how God worked through the unfairness in Joseph's life to accomplish great purposes. I think we should strive to be fair and teach our children to be but we have to accept that all of life will not be, but God can work in, through, around, with, or in spite of it. We, or at least I, tend to waste so much time and emotional energy sputtering over what's unfair when I should just leave it to the Lord and carry on.

Hi, I'm a new follower from Joyce's hodgepodge. I don't know why I clicked on your entry until I read your post. I'm a fellow Christian and really enjoyed your answers to the questions. Peaches are my favorite fruit too. :)
Hope to see you around blogland.
