A Holly Jolly Hodgepodge

1. Are you more task oriented or people oriented? Elaborate.

I'm going to go with task oriented because I tend to be an introvert and there are times when I would just as soon be a hermit as have to deal with people.

2. December 15 is National Wear Your Pearls you own/wear pearls? If you're a man answering the question, does your sweetheart own or wear pearls? Everyone share a 'pearl of wisdom' with us here today.

I do indeed have pearls.  I like pearls.  That said, I rarely dress up enough to wear them these days.  (Sorry, I'm just not the throw them on with my jeans and t-shirt to go grocery shopping type of girl.)

A "pearl of wisdom"....  If you don't have anything nice to say about someone, don't say anything at all.

3. Speaking of pearls...oysters? Are you a fan or not a fan? If you answered yes, tell us your favorite way to eat oysters? If you said no, be honest-have you ever tried one or does just the idea of eating an oyster make you gag a little?

NOT a fan and yes, I have tried them made many different ways.  I love seafood, but not oysters.

4. Time Magazine has named President-elect Donald Trump Person of the Year. Let's take presidents and presidential candidates out of the mix for a minute. If a political figure had not been chosen who would you name Man or Woman of the Year for 2016? have no idea at all.  I would really need to do some research on that.

5. The Pantone Color of the Year for 2017 has been announced, and it's a vibrant green aptly named-greenery. Your thoughts? Is this a color currently in your home or wardrobe? Will you add something in this shade for the new year? Click here to see the color.

I love it!  I've always been a green person.  You can already find the color throughout my home.  My kitchen cabinets are just about that shade.  Will I ad something?  I don't know, but I'm definitely not against it.

6. Today I've had too much________________________. and not enough sleep!

7. Share a favorite lyric from a favorite Christmas carol.

And I, I celebrate the day
That You were born to die
So I could one day pray for You to save my life

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Christmas came early for our family.  Yesterday, December 13, 2016 at 6:52 p.m. our third grandchild and our daughter's first child was born in the middle of a snow storm.  Please join me in celebrating and welcoming Colton Timothy to the world!


  1. You and I sound like we are a lot alike! I, too, am an introvert and have the Color of the Year in my kitchen. It's on the walls. Congrats on your new grandson!!! So beautiful! We had our first grandchild in August and he is just absolutely my joy! Merry Christmas!

  2. Beautiful baby, I have 2 grandsons and after 2 daughters, I was glad to have some experience with boys.

  3. Welcome to your precious Colton!! I was born on December 11th, also in a snow storm (blizzard!). I enjoyed reading your HP answers!! I don't like oysters either!

  4. Wow! Colton is beautiful little baby. Such joy to the family! Congrats.

  5. Ooooh-he's adorable! Congratulations to the whole family! Enjoy spoiling him as all grandparents should : )
