Wednesday Hodgepodge

 1. Here we are entering the last month of the year 2020. 2020!! Every year The Oxford English Dictionary publishing team chooses a word that captures the general mood of the year we're leaving behind, or the one word that will leave a lasting impact on the world at large. This year they needed sixteen words in order to cover the whole enchilada. 


While two of the other major dictionaries selected pandemic as their word of the year, Oxford came up with a long list including-bushfire, impeachment, acquittal, coronavirus, COVID-19, lockdown, social distancing, reopening, Black Lives Matter, Cancel Culture, BIPOC, mail-in, belarusian, moonshot, net zero (read more about each word here)

Of the words listed which ONE would you say should be in the number 1 spot? Which word/phrase on this list would you be happy to never hear again? 

Number 1....COVID
I would be happy to not hear SOCIAL DISTANCING!  Not to be able to gather with people, sitting close at a restaurant, movie, or church has been tough. No hugging or cuddling grandbabies is tormenting; but I understand with me being back in school (just doesn't make it easier). Gosh....keeping social distancing away from my students is challenging; some students just need a hug.
Then, there are so many who are in nursing homes who have to visit outside the window.  How painful it is to the residents.
Then there are those who are hospitalized with no visitors from loved ones. 
AND just giving a hug to a long-lost friend.
Definitley could go a life time before hearing Social Distancing!  

2. What one word from your own list of words describing this year sums up/best reflects your 2020? Tell us why.

Heartbreaking!  There is no pain  more excruciating than burying your child; it isn't normal.
BUT, I am THANKFUL, youngest daughter gave birth to twins in March, so I have 3 healthy grandkids, I have a warm home, a job I was able to return to that I love, friends who I can chat with at 3 in the morning when I am unable to sleep, a church family and children at church who give me a hug (how can I tell them not to hug me!!) and many more blessings that I sometimes forget.

3. Do you like peppermint? Peppermint mocha, a candy cane, peppermint bark, peppermint tea, York Peppermint Pattie, peppermint ice cream...of the peppermint treats listed, which one is your favorite? Will you bake anything featuring peppermint this holiday season? 

Yes, like peppermint.  Favorite(s) would  peppermint mocha and York Peppermint Pattie.  Have not had peppermint ice cream but sounds like something I should try.
No baking here!

4. Besides Christmas, what do you associate the color red with? How about the color green? 

Red--danger maybe because it is the color of blood and it also reminds me of danger or someone being angry.
Green-new birth or growth. After winter, when spring, springs forth with new grass, trees blooming, etc. Green reminds me of HOPE.

5. Is your tree up? Real or artificial? Is your house decorated? Is your shopping done? Started? Wrapped? On a scale of 1-10 with 1 being Scrooge-like and 10 being Buddy the Elf, how's your Christmas spirit? 

I am not putting a tree up this year, with just me...nope.  I have decorated some on the outside of the house, shopping is started, not completed. 
Trying to get in the spirit, but so sad for me and with deceased daughter's birthday December 30th a double blow. Listening to Christmas music brings a smile with a lot of tears.

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

On Monday, at school, I became a little emotional.  So many teachers' families being affected by COVID and some very serious requiring hospitalization and on a ventilator.  My prayers are with all.
Schools were closed Tuesday (yeah, I know we are hybrid but with so many teachers absent it is difficult trying to find subs).  It was so nice and warm last week; I had my windows open.  BUT Ole' Man Winter came and gave us a reality check....temps in the 20s with snow and ice on the roads Tuesday.
I bought grandkids some matching PJs.

Aidan, Blake, and Liam.  Now, this makes me smile.

Have a great rest of the week.  Please Stay Safe and Enjoy Life.

  3. Oh dear lady, I can't even imagine burying a child and how heartbreaking that is. Joy and sorrow seem to always go hand in hand. Those three grands must bring joy. They are so cute in those jammies! Praying for God's comfort in your life as I type...

I want to share a blog and forums on how to get a real blank ATM card, i thank Mr Calvin who helped me with an already hacked ATM CARD and I was so poor without funds that I got frustrated.

  15. I am very happy, I'm a living testimony. I got my blank ATM card last week from Jim Lee hackers. At first when I was in doubt. Then I decided to give it a trial and to my surprise the card was delivered, I went testing it on the ATM machine. I was shocked when I used it to withdraw $1500 and now I have withdrawn $20,000 in total. The card is real, I'm so happy thank you Jim Lee hackers. If interested you can email: jimleehacker07@gmail.com
