Wednesday Hodgepodge - Jan 24, 2024

Do you have a word for the year (WOTY)? If so, and you'd like to share, please share. How do you decide on a word? If you don't have a word are you still on the hunt for one for 2024? 
    • I don't think I do. I keep tripping over references to connections and magic. I like both of those, but having a WOTY isn't really a goal for me.
January 23rd is National Pie Day...will you celebrate? Do you like pie? What's your favorite?
    • Oops - yesterday? I guess not. I usually like the crust best on a pumpkin pie with lots of whipped cream, or a chocolate dream pie.
Tipping. What are your thoughts, expectations, as to who, when where? Do you appreciate a store/restaurant giving a 'suggested amount'? Have you ever left an extravagant tip? 
    • I usually try to tip at least 20%. If there's a selector with a few options, I try to hit one higher than the middle, if I can afford it right then. I know I could not handle a service job, so they deserve every bit of what I can afford, I feel. And if I can't afford to tip, I can't afford to be out and about. ;)
Share with us one 'household tip' that works for you. 
    • Put the dang dishes in the dishwasher. I hate having to pick them up again later.
Influencers on social media are people who've built a reputation for their knowledge and expertise on a particular subject. Do you follow any influencers online? Have you made a purchase or tried something new because of that 'influence'? If there's one you particularly enjoy tell us who and why. 
    • I think I mostly like to be amused online. I can't think of anything I purchased because of an influencer, but I really enjoy ones who make their point with humor, or educate me on another point of view. 
Insert your own random thought here. 
    • Oh golly. We've been getting hit with a lot of yucky weather where I'm at, so foremost in my mind is planning to have a job where I can work at least part of the time from home by this time next year. Ya hear me, universe?

Dishes in the sink when the dishwasher is literally less than a foot away is a bit of a pet peeve of mine. My hubs is super neat and only occasionally leaves his late night ice cream bowl in the sink. In his defense I have a lot of rules for how the dishwasher is loaded lol. Have a great weekend!

I too just want everyone to take care of their own dishes!!! Ha! We've had yucky weather here in the PNW too.
