|Sewing with Christmas fabrics|
Today is Hodgepodge Wednesday. Joyce supplies the questions, bloggers answer and then link up at her blog called From This Side of the Pond. http://www.fromthissideofthepond.com
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).
Delicious, nutritious, scrumptious
2. When did you last say, 'the more the merrier'? Did you mean it?
I know I have said this, but I don't remember the last time.
3. What's one piece of advice you'd give someone who is your same age?
Learn to trust the Lord more and lean less on your own understanding. Just because we are ** years old doesn't mean we know it all or can't learn something new.
4. You're ordering a veggie plate, what four veggies are on it?
Spinach, broccoli, carrots, and potatoes.
5. Shop till you drop! Did you? Have you ever? Will you between now and Christmas?
Yes, I have shopped till I dropped but not in many years. I remember Christmas shopping myself into exhaustion shortly after I learned I was pregnant with our first child. Beloved was out of town, so I didn't have any need to cut the shopping short to make supper for him. What I didn't realize was how very, very tired we get during the first three months of pregnancy. That was a real eye-opener for me.
I don't plan to shop that hard this year.
6. What's your favorite chair in your house, and why is it a favorite?
When I sit, I often fall asleep. For that reason, I have 2 favorite chairs:
|red recliner for TV watching (and sleeping); |
my "chocolate chair" for reading and needlework
7. Share an early memory of faith, religion, or spirituality.
When I was 6 years old, my mother was preparing to teach a children's Sunday School class with a flannel graph board. She asked me if I'd like to see her story and I did. As she spoke I realized I was a sinner and could not get to heaven on my own merit. I needed to ask Jesus Christ to forgive me of my wrongs and give me eternal life. I asked my mother to help me pray right then. That was when I became a Christian.
8. Insert your random thought here: This week I am posting photos of Christmas decorations in The Brown Bungalow. Today the pictures are from my kitchen. As I have said in previous posts, none of these things are especially unusual, they are certainly inexpensive, and are even understated; but they add a festive touch and I like it that way. Many of the ideas I'm sharing make good gifts, too.
