It’s Wednesday again … and it’s time for Wednesday Hodgepodge … the last Wednesday Hodgepodge of 2011.
1. Share something you loved about your Christmas Day.
I loved that it was a nice, quiet day at home with DH. We celebrated Christmas with DD and her family on Christmas Eve.
2. You get to put five items in a time capsule to be opened in 100 years, what items would you choose and why?
Hmmm, this is a toughie, Joyce. I will start with an iPad and a smart phone so they can laugh at how antiquated our technology is. I would put in a newspaper because I’m pretty sure they’ll be obsolete by then. I would put in a Bible because in 100 years people will still need Jesus.
3. What do you like on a cracker?
This Christmas I discovered a new treat for spreading on crackers. Boursin Garlic and Fine Herbs. Mmmmm, yummy!
4. Do you make resolutions at the start of a new year? How'd that work out for you this past year?
I don’t technically make resolutions. I’ve found that there’s just something about making a resolution that sets me up for failure. I do have goals, but they’re ongoing … watching what I eat, getting more exercise, spending more time with God.
5. What's a song or song lyric you'll associate with 2011?
I’ll associate Hold Me by Jamie Grace with Toby Mac with 2011. All my Ts loved that song, but it the first (or one of the first) songs that T#4 sang… so whenever I’d hear that song, I immediately think of her.
6. How will you ring in the new year?
Friday we’ll be driving my dad to to within 3 hours of the Alabama Gulf Coast, where he’ll spend January and February. He’s a little apprehensive about driving through larger cities, so we’ll drive him far enough south that he’ll have an easy and short drive Saturday morning to the condo he’s renting. We’ll arrive back home Saturday afternoon. I suspect that we’ll be pretty tired upon our return so our New Year’s Eve celebrating will be very low key … as in non-existent. ha!
7. What is something you look forward to in 2012?
I have several things that I’m looking forward to in 2012: good health for DD and her family (they’ve been hit so hard this year), quilting more (no more working in 2012), traveling (I’ll visit my dad on the Gulf Coast in January, we’ll do our annual spring training trip in March, we’ll go to Hilton Head in May, and we may finally get to the Outer Banks in September if we don’t go back to Hilton Head).
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I’ve been taking Vitamin C every day for the last 3-4 weeks, hoping to stave off any colds or upper respiratory infections. I have been sniffly with a bit of a cough in the mornings for about 5-6 days now; I’m praying that the Vitamin C will keep this from developing into a full-fledged cold/URI.
