Wednesday Hodgepodge


1. Three things you're grateful for this first week of November? 

My family, friends, and my church

2. Is Daylight Savings Time a thing where you live? Do you think we should continue setting the clocks forward and back? Why or why not? If you could add an extra hour to your day would you want it added morning-noon-night? Do you think it likely you'd be more productive or more likely that you'd just waste more time? 

I dread Daylight Savings Time!!  I wish they would leave the time alone.  It gets dark by 5 o'clock , and I definitely need my daylight.  More daylight to my evenings/night and I would be more productive.  Now, starting Monday, it is a little dark when I leave and almost dark when I get home.

3. Who is  your favorite author? Your favorite book by your favorite author? 

Kristin Hannah---I haven't read a book she hasn't written that I don't love, so I can't pick a favorite book!!

4. It's National Sandwich Day...will you celebrate? How often do you eat a sandwich? What's your favorite? 

I might eat a sandwich today; it is a cool, rainy day which might call for soup and a sandwich.  Rarely, do I eat a sandwich.  My favorite is a homegrown tomato sandwich with mayonnaise.

5. Have you started your Christmas shopping? If so when did you start? If not when will you start? Do you give more or fewer gifts than you did five years ago? 

Yes, only because daughter texted me pics of what she wanted me to get the boys.  I usually don't start Christmas shopping till after Thanksgiving.  I want to enjoy Thanksgiving.  I give fewer gifts than I did five years ago because my family has gotten smaller.

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

Went to visit a friend in Bristol this past weekend.  A celebration of TWO birthdays.  There were lots and lots of food.


Love these friends!
Have a great rest of the week!



  1. My, that was a lot of food! You are right, there is nothing better than spending time with family and for that I too am grateful.

  2. I love Kristen Hannah's writing too. I think The Great Alone is my favorite of hers. So glad you had a fun girl gathering!

  3. Yum! Homegrown tomato sandwich = delicious!!!

  4. I'm with you on the time change. It's been a long time since I've had a tomato sandwich. Delicious. Happy November and Hodgepodge to you.

  5. Thanks for stopping by! I enjoyed your hodgepodge, looks like a fun gathering with friends.

  6. Enjoyed your post. I agree on the time change. Uggh! I would like to try a fried green tomato sandwich

  7. I like the name of your blog. A bit similar to mine.
