Wednesday's Hodgepodge

Visit Joyce and join the fun!

1. Do you believe in miracles?

Yes, I do.

2. What's a recent fad you admit to trying?

 Rainbow loom bracelets.  I do occasionally wear them and have asked my children to make them in seasonal colors for me.  

3. Peppermint-are you a fan? If so, what's your favorite food or beverage containing peppermint?

Yes, I love peppermint.  My favorite is mint chocolate chip ice cream.  Can you go wrong with chocolate and peppermint?  Peppermint bark is another favorite of mine.  I just bought some starlight mints last night to make some :)

4. Break the ice, on thin ice, as cold as ice (emotionally, not literally)...which phrase have you run into most recently? Explain.      
I'll say on thin ice.  I've heard some comments that have put people on thin ice recently.

5. Have you ever broken or spilled something in someone else's home? Still friends?

I'm sure I have.  The one I remember though is my friend spilling nail polish remover on my mother's end table and then moving the doilie to cover it.  Yes, we were still friends after that.

6.  'Tis the week before Christmas...are you feeling more like Buddy the Elf or theGrinch before his heart grew?

Buddy the Elf :)  Well, not quite that far but closer to him than the Grinch.

7. Share a favorite quote relating to Christmas.

11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger." 13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying:14 "Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!"
Luke 2:11-14

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I am almost finished with my Christmas baking.  So far I've baked Wedding Cakes, Thumbprints, M&M and Sour Cream Cookies (about 478 cookies).  I still have raspberry bars and maple walnut balls to make.  One of my favorite things to do this time of year :)
 Merry Christmas!


  1. Another person who loves peppermint bark-- great.
    I wish you a wonderful holiday season. Merry christmas
    or Happy holidays however you choose to celebrate it

  2. All those goodies sound delicious! It's a shame you live far away! I too love baking this time of year. I used to do fudge but hardly anyone else ate it. I suppose i can try adding peppermint to it! ;) I have the same answer for #4 ! Have yourself a very Merry Christmas!! :)

  3. My sister spilled nail polish remover on her dresser when we were kids. She thought she was pretty clever trying to cover it up too : ) Your cookies sound delicious-Merry Christmas!

  4. WOW!! I'll call you Cookie Monster!!! I'm going to try to make a dozen sometime before Christmas... you just shamed me :)

  5. Bowing to the cookie queen! Wow..that's alot of cookie, smiles. Have a blessed remainder of the day.

  6. are a baker!!! I did about 10 dozen cookies last night, after work. Made candy the night before. That's it for me (except for a couple of cakes). Whew!! I always enjoy everyone's Hodgepodge post!! Merry Christmas!!

  7. I brought a loom to my great niece in Florida a few weeks ago and she loved it! Actually I do like Mint Choc Chip Ice Cream, here I was thinking I really don't care for peppermint. I'm not Buddy yet but I'm pretty close. This year I am only baking the family favorite which is Spritz and a sweet bread for Christmas morning. I'm going with Less Is More this year! Merry Christmas to you and your family.....
