Wednesday's Hodgepodge

Join the fun over at Joyce's!

1. Share your traditions surrounding the Christmas stocking.

We hang our Christmas stockings on a mirror that hangs in our hallway. We don’t have a fireplace or a mantel so I found that spot works well. I usually put an orange in them along with necessities like toothbrushes or hand sanitizers along with some fun little toys for the kids and candy. We usually forget to open our stockings and end up doing it late Christmas night or the next day.

2. How many hours of sleep do you average at night? Is it enough?

On average I would say 8. I try for 9 since it was suggested to me by a doctor. It is necessary to get good sleep to heal your adrenal glands. Since stress affects your adrenal glands I am sure everyone could benefit from good sleep ;) Yes, it is enough although I would always probably choose more if given the choice.

3. If you had to give up one thing for the remainder of this year what would it be?

I don’t want to pick food since I already gave up bananas, cow’s milk and eggs this year. I had some testing done and have intolerances to those. How about ironing? I could give it up if I had to and it might motivate me to get my clothes out of the dryer when it goes off ;)

4. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge (or Wills and Kate as I like to call them) have announced they're expecting a baby. Do you follow news of the Royals?

No, I don’t follow news of the Royals unless it is on Joyce’s blog. I am very happy for them though.

5. For me, the sound of childhood is__________________.


6. Fruit cake-yay or boo? What's your favorite dessert made with fruit?

I don’t want to say boo because it is a traditional Christmas dessert but I am not particularly fond of it. My favorite dessert made with fruit is apple pie. Good old American Apple Pie .

7. What is one thing you want to accomplish before 2012 comes to an end?

I would like to sell some items on ebay. I am trying to get rid of some things and make a few bucks while I am at it.

8. Insert your own random thought here. 

Does anyone know how to change the font of your blog using the new blogger? 



  1. I said laughter also! I'm not sure what you mean by the front of your blog. I do most things in customized under advanced.

  2. Theresa, if you find out how to change the font, let me know. You are suppose to be able to go to Customized under advanced (just as Debby said) but it does NOT work. I've talked to my blog designer about it and she said there must be some glitch with Blogger. She said she would try to work on it for me after the holidays. I go over about once a week and try again. It is so frustrating!!!

    Ironing was a good thing and I should have said that since I do a lot of it, especially since there is only 2 of us. :o)

    Christmas blessings!

  3. My hubs irons here so I guess I've mostly given it up already : )

  4. I am ashamed to admit that I don't iron and never have. I actually only bought my first iron years ago because the job I had required creases in pants. :)

  5. I was able to change my font under the Customize part of the design. I hope you get it done to your satisfaction.

  6. i love your stocking traditions. i think i would like to start putting a toothbrush in too. that is a cute idea! i was talking to my mom and she said when she was growing up they got lots of fruit in their stockings and they had actual panty hose for stockings! i love hearing about different traditions.


Thank you for visiting. Please let me know you stopped by so I can be sure to come visit you. ~Theresa
