Wednesday Hodgepodge

It's time for Wednesday Hodgepodge with Joyce and the gang again!



1.  So, when did you last take a walk in the woods? A stroll along the beach? A drive going nowhere in particular in the car? 

Hmmm . . .probably when I last went to Burney Falls awhile back. It's woodsy.


As for a stroll on the beach . . . I can't remember the last time I was at the beach. And the Bay Area doesn't count. I rarely take an aimless drive - my last drive was to the Bay Area to see my BFF for a concert. Roughly 4 hours each way. Ick.

2.  Are you sending Christmas cards this year?  About how many do you send?  Photo card or something more traditional?  How do you display the cards you receive?

Yes, I'm sending cards this year. My last batch should be mailed on Wednesday and hopefully will reach everyone by Christmas. If not, I apologize. I'm sending out approximately 20 to 30 cards in total. I think. I usually send regular, traditional Christmas cards, although I'd like to eventually do the photo cards. When I get cards, I usually set them out somewhere so I can see them through the Holiday Season. 
3. What's a word you've heard too much of in the past week?

"Can I pay part now and part later?" Who lets you do that besides Visa, Mastercard, Discover and AmEx?
"How much is it to get my dog/cat spayed/neutered?" More than you would like, but lower than our competitors...
"Do you give senior discounts?" Nope. Sorry.
"This is a really weird question . . . " try me....
"How much will a visit cost me to have the vet look at my dog's ears? That doesn't include medication if needed? So how much will all this cost me???" No one will ever know if you don't come in...

Okay so that's way more than one word. But really, one word just won't work for me. 
 
4. December 13th is National Cocoa Day-are you a fan?  Plain or flavored?  Marshmallows or no marshmallows?

I love a cup of hot cocoa. I prefer plain versus the flavored cocoas. And marshmallows or no makes no matter to me. 
5. What is something you do to help alleviate the hectic pace of the Christmas season?

Bake cookies. Do nothing. Watch a movie.

Or just get stuff done quickly.

Nah. Where's the fun in that? 
6. Besides jewelry, what's a favorite sparkly-glittery item in your home or closet?

I don't wear sparkly-glittery clothing. Sparkly-glittery belongs on jewelry, some clothes (tactfully), and never on vampires.  ;o) 
7. Share a favorite line or two from any Christmas carol.

You will get a sentimental feeling When you hear voices singing
"Let's be jolly; Deck the halls with boughs of holly"
Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone's dancing merrily
In a new old fashioned way

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I started my day off having to deal with someone who doesn't know how to shut their trap. I was not a happy camper. Off and on I had to deal with this person. I'm not saying they're not nice, but I'm still not a fan. My day was fine during the times this person wasn't talking to me. I got home from work to find that my Mom had cooked up a pot of homemade chili. My day got a whole lot better. The cherry on top were the peanut butter cookies she made, too.

  3. I love your last answer to #6! Too true! lol :D Why is it I can never read song lyrics in a normal tone of voice? I have to sing it in my head every single time. And good food always makes the day way better! :)

  4. Unfortunately, it's been next to impossible this time of year to just do nothing. So many things on my list! However, I do try very hard to take a breather from time-to-time so I don't get too overwhelmed.

  10. Yum on the chili and cookies!! I bet it is redundant to answer the same questions over and over again as people inquire for their pets' health needs.

    1. It is. I understand that people have questions, and money is tight for most everyone, but some days those same questions over and over make you want to crawl under the counter. lol

  14. I hate how the concerts are so far from here, though they have had a few good ones at the Wells Fargo center in Santa Rosa a few years back. Though i can't do concerts anymore, way too much abuse on the sensitive ears. ;(
