Wednesday Hodgepodge

Grandma Got Run Over by the Hodgepodge-Volume 56

I know everyone is busy but you need a break from the shopping and the wrapping and the baking, right? Here ya go...

1. Will you be hosting any house guests between now and the end of December? Does that thought make you happy or crazy? Do you do anything special for your guests to make them feel at home? How long should a house guest stay? No overnight guests.....I guess that would depend on the guest.....3 or 4 days

2. Walter Elias Disney was born this week (December 5) back in 1905 ...what's your all time favorite Disney movie?  Here's a list in case you're struggling...and yes, you have to pick one. Beauty and the Beast

3. What was the last thing you purchased that you realized was a mistake after the fact? Father Christmas from Hallmark which was a special reduced price with a purchase...I have no where to put it...I think I'll gift it to a special friend who collects Santas. It is breakable and I'm afraid to just put it out anywhere in case it gets knocked over.

4. What percentage of your Christmas shopping is done online? 50% Don't you love the wish lists on Amazon. Honey Bear sure does.

5. Amaryllis-snowdrop-poinsettia...your favorite winter blossom? Christmas Cactus which isn't listed here.

6. What is one thing on your personal Christmas wish list? I think we all want peace on earth so let's make this answer an actual item. There's a pair of earrings on there that I particularly like.

7. If you could only use one word today what would it be? Yes

8. Insert your own random thought here. I'm still searching for my wreath hanger and the cookie recipe....they seem to have walked off.........we now have 4 trees up.
Hop on over to This Side of the Pond
to play or just read answers of other participants.


  1. It's not too late to get in on the photo challenge...check out the link to Susan's blog in my post if you're interested.

    Oh Christmas Cactus! I love them!

  2. I love your bear theme! Are teddy bears so adorable? I have a few of them. I would get more, if I only had a special place for them. Oh, wow you have 4 trees up! That's so cool! I've always thought how wonderful it would be to display multiple trees in our home, but it's too small for anything like that. However, I can dream about that perfect house I hope to move into one day where I can do such a thing as put up more than one tree. =D

  3. I like your teddy bears. I collect snowmen and display them all winter long! We have a tall skinny tree on the first floor and a larger one in our finished basement. Can't get enough of Christmas!

  4. My favorite Disney film would be a tie between Lady and the Tramp and Beauty and the Beast.

  5. I've been out of sorts lately, but am ready to get back! I think I might just play this game too, if you don't mind! :)

  6. I laughed out loud just reading your title!!
    Hope you find your cookie hanger :)

  7. I have two CHristmas cacti -- Love them and so gorgeous and both are blooming... One's been blooming since Thanksgiving. The other was my husband grandmothers... So I am blessed with the OLD cactus.

    As for my wish list. I think it needs revising... ha! Have wonderful day!

    Not sure if you knew but my blog moved - new name too!

  8. Enjoyed reading your answers. I agree with you, the Christmas Cactus is lovely. I'm still working on my decorations, then it's cards and baking! Enjoy the rest of your week.

  9. I love my Christmas cactus too! And it's blooming like crazy this year! And I love those Amazon wish lists too!

  10. FOUR trees? Oh my goodness! To each his own they say....but, oh my goodness. LOL
