Wednesday Hodgepodge, Thanksgiving Edition

It's been a couple of busy weeks, but I'm finally getting an opportunity to check back in with Joyce for the Wednesday Hodgepodge!

1.What's something you wish you knew how to do, but feel like it's too late to learn?

Well, I don't know that it's too late to learn a lot of things, but time and priorities are a huge constraint. I can sew decently but wish I were more adept.

2. Your least favorite thing to shop for? Why?

Pants or jeans. Finding the right length combined with waist and a comfortable rise is a total hassle.

3. How has the celebration of Thanksgiving today changed from when you were growing up?

Not sure if Joyce means culturally or personally. For me personally, this is the third year I have worked Thanksgiving Day and then had the rest of the weekend off. That just works better than the reverse because it gives me the most time with my kids when they are home from college.

4. What's something that when other people see it, reminds them of you? Explain.

Puns and grammar things. I am a word geek through and through!

5. If you could guest star in a TV show, what would it be and why?

Wheel of Fortune. Of course, I know it's harder when you're on the show, but I usually do pretty good on the puzzles.

6. Have you ever farmed or spent any time on a farm? Are there farm stands in your little corner of the world and do you make it a point to shop there? If so, what item do you particularly like to buy from a roadside stand or farm shop?

Nix on the farming. I am a city girl through and through. But I love Central Texas peaches fresh from the orchards!

7. What's something you've experienced recently that made you feel a sense of awe or wonder?

Seeing God's hand in situations and being reminded of His faithfulness.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

The recipe came from one of my grandmothers and it absolutely spoiled me for any other type of spiced tea or wassail. And it's really not hard to make.


1 tsp. whole cloves
1 1/2 inch stick cinnamon
3 quarts water
2 large tea bags
Juice of 3 oranges
Juice of 1 1/2 lemons
1 c. sugar

Place spices in a spice ball, add to water, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, add tea bags, and steep. Heat juices and sugar and add to tea. Mix well and serve hot. Makes 3 quarts.

Wheel of Fortune! I should have said that one. I'd hate to be one of those unlucky spinners who seem to hit bankrupt every time they roll. I know I wouldn't buy vowels when I already have the answer though : ) That drives me nuts! Hope you had a happy Thanksgiving!
