Here we are on the last day of November…Can you believe it? It’s time to join Joyce for her weekly Wednesday Hodgepodge, so here are her questions along with my answers.
1. Do you send Christmas cards? If so about how many will you send this year? How do you display the cards you receive? Or don’t you? (gasp!) Yes, I still send out a few Christmas cards–to the same people each year. I usually mail somewhere between fifteen and twenty cards, and I display our Christmas cards on the top of our entertainment center.
2. When do kids become adults? Despite what the law says, I don’t think kids necessarily become (responsible) adults just because they reach a certain age. Reaching adulthood is a process, and it varies with each person. Some become adults early, some later. Some kids never become responsible adults!
3. Does your ‘beauty regimen’ change with the seasons? What beauty regimen? Ha Ha I have use body lotion for my dry skin during winter. That’s my only change.
4. What’s something you like to eat that might cause another person to turn up their nose? The only thing I can think of is mustard or turnip greens. Some people find them gross, but I enjoy them, especially when eaten with a piece of cornbread!
5. Gloves or mittens? I never wear either one, but I’d choose gloves over mittens.
6. What’s the longest queue you’ve ever been in? Was it worth it? Queue=line but doesn’t queue sound nicer? The longest line I ever remember standing in was the line to ride “Space Mountain” at Disneyworld. It was many years ago, shortly after the ride first opened. I enjoyed the ride very much, but I wouldn’t stand in line that long to ride it again!
7. Besides Christmas, what is one thing you are looking forward to in the month of December? That’s easy–the arrival of our new grandson, Chase, who is scheduled to make his appearance on December 27!
Random: I’ve spent the past two days working on my Christmas tree–and I’m not quite finished. I still have to finish a little of the top. Every year, it takes forever to decorate my tree. The tree rotates, so the garland has to hang even all the way around, and the ends have to meet. Then I have four tubs of Christmas ornaments to unwrap and sort through each year. Finally, I have to find “just the right spot” on the tree for each ornament. It’s a labor of love.
