Wednesday Hodgepodge

From this Side of the Pond

1. Does anybody really know what day it is? Last week we skipped the Hodgepodge and I just assumed this week would find us in December, but nope. Still November. Do you wear a watch? Use a paper calendar or strictly electronic? What's your favorite hour of the day? Why? 

Yes, I wear a watch.  I have a (IDK what you call it that keeps track of my steps)!!  If I don't have a watch on, I feel naked!!  I use both a paper calendar and an electronic calendar.  I like when my watch dings that reminds me of an event.  Call me ole school but I still write stuff down on my paper calendar. 

2. Tell us something about how you celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday. 

Keith, my son-in-law, and I spent Thanksgiving morning delivering 98 meals to families.  This is something I have been doing for at least 20 years.  My church sends out a list of food items that people sign up to bring (turkey, slaw, mashed potatoes, green beans, rolls, and pies).  People have to have all the food at the church by 8am, another group of people are there at 9am packing the boxes, and another group there by 10am to begin delivering the food.  

3. What's a sound you hate to hear? 

I hate to hear the sound of ambulance or fire trucks.  My heart just stops and I try to whisper a prayer for safety for all involved.

4. Where do you not mind waiting? 

I do  not mind waiting in line at a movie theatre.

5. I really wish____________________________________.  I really wish people would be kinder!  No one really knows what another person is going through.  The holiday seasons can be so difficult and what does it hurt a person to just be kind? Heck, we should be kind all the time.  Words hurt, but a smile makes someone's day.

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

Decorating has begun at my house!  Thanks to my grandsons!
