Wednesday Hodgepodge…Goodbye November, Hello December

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.

  1. Cornbread and greens sound really good right about now!

  2. I love turnip greens and cornbread. So exciting to have a Christmas baby: )

  3. I love turnip greens with a little vinegar. Congrats on the upcoming new grandson. Hope you will show us pictures of your finished tree.

  4. I don’t think I’ve ever had turnip greens but I do like all green stuff, even brussel sprouts, so I proably would like them too, expecially with cornbread.

    I told my 2 younger daughters that they had to be 18 to get a tattoo. I thought they would forget about it but they didn’t. I do agree that an age does not automatically give you maturity. That’s for sure.

  5. Mmm…turnips, spinach, mustards…they’re all good to me. 🙂

    I’m sure you anxiously awaiting your new grandson. 🙂

    Don’t forget to post pictures when you’re finished decorating. 🙂

  6. Decorating our trees is a labor of love too. And it begins tonight! I’m excited about your grandson too! I can’t wait to see the pictures!

  7. MMMM add a few fried potatoes with those greens and cornbread and then of course what my mom always called pepper salts (vinegar off hot peppers) and we would be in business. Good stuff! I bet your tree is beautiful!
    until next time… nel

  8. I’ll bet that new grandson will be your best Christmas gift this year! 😉

    I’m with you on beauty regime. ha!

  9. We are the only ones in California so many family and friends live out of state so I love sending them cards.
    Yes our longest wait was Space Mountain for 2 1/2 hours with our Fast Pass!!! How exciting, I didn’t realize your grandson was due already. Your tree rotates? Oh my, were do you put the ugly ornament? Sorry but I just had to say that. I have some ornaments that are not necessarly my favorites anymore to they go to the back of the tree.
