It's Wednesday again, so time for the Hodgepodge -- the linkup where Joyce, at From This Side of the Pond, asks the questions and bloggers provide the answers on their own blogs. This week's Hodgepodge questions help us sum up November and begin to think about December fun. Here goes:
1. Sum up your November in ten words or less.
Wonderful, heartfelt times of fellowship with family and friends.
Not planning on hosting one. So far we are planning on attending one, with my hubby's former work crew. It's always a low-key time with lots of delicious food and he enjoys catching up with everyone. Out of the partier categories mentioned, I guess you would say we are both party poopers. We tend to go to bed early and so we don't stay late anywhere. My hubby is Mr. Congeniality and can talk to anyone about anything, but he wants to leave a party by 9 pm if not before. Thankfully the one party we are planning on is always an early night.
3. Do you purchase holiday clothing of any sort (sparkly tops, Christmas jammies, Santa suit, etc).
Maybe a holiday sweater or vest. Possibly socks. I have a couple of Christmas-designed turtlenecks. The great thing about festive clothing is that it's worn for such a short season it tends to last for years, so I haven't bought anything like this in awhile.
4. What's your go-to recipe when you're asked to bring an hors d'oeuvre to a party?
This time of year it is always my Festive Cheese Log which I've been making for years. It travels well and only needs a box or two of crackers to accompany it.
5. December 3rd is National Play Outside Day...what might you do to celebrate?
Let's see, it will be Saturday. Maybe a hike or a walk if the weather is nice.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
We got to stay overnight at our little camp on November 27. The night was rainy but warm, and we must have warmish temps to stay there in winter or late fall. Much of the building is not insulated and our main source of heat is a wood stove which doesn't hold a fire all night. So we have to pick and choose our times. One thing my hubby did while there was to get the lights on the loft Christmas tree.
No, we don't have that much snow yet! Almost no snow, in fact. The photo below is from last December.
Oh, and just an FYI to all who are interested -- I'm going to try and post daily during December in my Christmas blog, and hopefully here at my kitchen table as well. Stop in and visit when you can!
There's the Hodgepodge for this week. Have a wonderful day, everyone!
