The Wishbone from the Thanksgiving turkey!
We save the wishbone and in a week or two the boys will snap the wishbone. Who ever has the longest end of the wishbone, makes a wish!
Welcome to the Hodgepodge!
Joyce asks the questions.
We answer the questions.
1. Give us three rhyming words that say something about your Thanksgiving holiday (or your most recent holiday gathering if you didn't celebrate Thanksgiving).
Driving in the fog
Cutting down our log
Eating like a hog
We had to drive in dense fog for the first half hour of our trip.
We always cut down our Christmas tree at my parents farm.
My mom made a wonderful feast!
2. When did you last say, 'the more the merrier'? Did you mean it?
For a party we are planning December 18th.
Yep, I mean it.
3. What's one piece of advice you'd give someone who is your same age?
Slow down .... we just seem so busy. Our kids are busy, we are busy, slow down and enjoy.
4. You're ordering a veggie plate, what four veggies are on it?
Celery, carrots, radish and green onions.
5. Shop til you drop! Did you? Have you ever? Will you between now and Christmas?
My sister and I would shop till we dropped when we were in high school and college.
We had so much fun.
I ordered most of my Christmas gifts online this year.
I will need to head to the market for my Christmas treats and party food!
6. What's your favorite chair in your house, and why is it a favorite?
My grandpa and I were best of buddies. When I would visit him, I would sit in a big wicker rocker, sip root beer and we would solve all the words problems.
When my husband and I got married, my grandparents passed on that wicker rocker to us.
It is still my favorite chair! During the winter months, I have it in front of our South patio door. I can sit and soak up the sun!
7. Share an early memory of faith, religion, or spirituality.
My dad sharing his stories about the nuns at his Catholic school.
I am not sure if he used the stories for bedtime, but my sister and I were fascinated with the nuns.
We would talk about them after, imagine life of nuns and create our own stories.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
"Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows; it empties today of its strength."
