Last of the Hodgepodgery for 2014

Seeing as how I've already posted ONCE today so that I wouldn't forget precious Christmas memories, I'm going to make this HP short.

As in 31 words or fewer per answer.   I resolve to use fewer words...ahem.

So excited for Joyce (our faithful hostess) and her family as their daughter ties the proverbial knot this weekend. Somehow Joyce managed to squeak out not only the questions but also some thoughtful answers. Read mine, then hers, by clicking this cute button.


1. Share a favorite moment from your Christmas holiday celebration.

Read the previous post. It's there.  Another was my youngest boy's hilarious impression of me whenever someone used a knife to open a gift. The scared face. The warbling voice.


2. What would you say has been the biggest news event during your life so far?

9/11.

3. The Pantone Color of the Year for 2015 is Marsala. What say you-like or no like? Would I find this color anywhere in your home or wardrobe? Will you add something in this shade to either? 

I like it, but not sure I LOVE it. Yes, it's in my home's decor in small doses.   think if it's got some pink undertones, it would work in my wardrobe.


4. Would you rather meet your ancestors or your great grandchildren? Explain why.

Ancestors.  I would thank the ones who prayed me into a relationship with Jesus.  


5. Share one life lesson learned in 2014?

Cancer strikes people closer to my heart all the time. This year it claimed Andrey (a family friend) and has struck my friend Renee'.  Don't take friendships for granted.


6. What was your best or favorite purchase made in 2014?

Airlines tickets to Kansas!


7. What is one thing you're looking forward to in the new year?

Remodeling the kitchen. Well, having it DONE, not actually DOING it or living through it.  



8.  Insert your own random thought here. 

I'll be visiting my 101 in 1001 soon, and seeing progress (or lack thereof) rather than making any actual resolutions. I'm a goal setter and that works.

I loved your answers to #4 and 5. So true.. So important that we keep praying for our unbelieving loved ones. I would love to have heard your son's impression of his mom when the knife came out. Lol

oh my goodness, I giggled whenever I read about your son imitating you - too funny! And yes - do not take friendships and relationships for granted. Amen and hallelujah. (But please don't limit your words, friend - I enjoy them so!)
