October Hodgepodge!!

1. What's one thing you learned in September? 
'Real comfort...involves having my identity rooted in something deeper than my relationships, possessions, achievements, wealth, health, or my ability to figure it all out. When my identity is rooted in him, the storms of trouble will not blow me away.' ~ PD Tripp
2. Acorn squash, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, yellow squash, zucchini squash, or blech! hold the squash... what's your favorite squash? What's your favorite way to prepare your favorite squash?
I love it pretty much any way it can be served...and any kind.  You didn't say we had to pick one...so I won't.  I just tried the squash soup at Panera...WOW, I want the recipe!!
3. The older I get the_______________________________.
...more things go downhill..literally!  Bwah hahaha!  It's a fight against gravity!  I do like my developing laugh lines though...no they are NOT wrinkles around my eyes!!
4. What's your favorite television theme song ever?
Oh that's easy...and I'll bet you've never heard it...All Creatures Great and Small on PBS...
5. What do you wish you'd spent more time doing five years ago?
Enjoying the mundane moments of life...the babyhood of my babies.  I realize everyone says this...and I scoffed and grumbled every time people told me...I thought, "good grief I just want to survive it!" but now...I wish I'd cuddled and cooed more instead of wishing them to grow up and sleep through the night.  They do now...but I'm waking up at 3 and staring at the ceiling.  Duh!
6. What item do you most need (or want) to add to your wardrobe this fall?
Orange.  I'm noticing it everywhere and realizing I have none!  Not the rusty orange either...the pop your eyes out almost neon orange!  I know it's last year's color, right?  I'm always a bit behind.  Ha!
7. On October 2, 1950 the Peanuts cartoon was introduced to the world. What was your favorite cartoon when you were a kid?
Smurfs.  Lala la lalala...la lala la la...lala la lalala...la lala la la!!!
8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Yeah, I've got nothin' sorry!  :-)  If I share my thoughts it'll be a "post for another day" kinda thang.

The Smurfs! I remember the cartoon.. And I've thought about crocheting the hat!.. But they've had one movie out; and now the next one, has been playing in the local cheaper theater all week, and I STILL haven't seen EITHER ONE YET!!! (Looks like I'll have to rent the first, then the second one eventually).. Have a great week! ~tina

I love a pop of orange in my wardrobe. I have a few pieces, and two scarves in particular that I love. A scarf is a good way to add orange to your wardrobe.

Paneras website actually has recipes on it, so you might check there and see if they've shared the squash soup recipe. I made a roasted red pepper soup of theirs that was delicious.

You made me realize, I don't own any pop out orange items. All my fall clothing are more of a brownish on reddish. lol. I have never heard that theme song, but it's kinda catchy. You had the la la la lalala perfect. Loved the smurfs, until they made the movie a couple years ago. I just wasn't that into it. My girls are now 11 and 7. I can still baby my 7 year old a bit. My 11 year old, ummm,, not so much. I enjoyed their baby years when they weren't even crawling. Even when my 11 year old was colicky and cried all night. Their father could sleep through a tornado, but when he would wake up at 8 a.m., all he had to do was pick her up. Auto tear reduction. I cried a few times unsure of what I was doing wrong. I think it's going to be the teenage years I just want to survive. lol
