1. Time magazine has selected The Ebola Fighters as their person of the year for 2014. Do you agree, and if so who would you say is a close second? If you disagree with their choice, who do you think should have been chosen?
Well, since Ebola is such a deadly disease and highly contagious, I think these folks are very deserving of this selection. I think Dr. Ben Carson would also be a good choice. ~in my estimation~ He has such a heart for our nation and encourages all of us to take an active role in changing the course of our country. He's a definite winner!!!
Something new: I can't think of anything new for the house but last week I found the cutest Christmas sweater and I'm "proud as punch" of it. I seldom see a Christmas sweater that I like but this one "fit the bill" for me.
Something borrowed: Again, not something for the house, but I borrowed some ear muffs from a friend last week to wear on our family fun weekend and I need to return those to her.
Something blue: I have the most beautiful Andrea Bluejay on our coffee table. He's been around a while and has survived both Grans and I do enjoy his presence. ~grin~
|The process I used to prepare my fudge for delivery over the past years. To me, presentation is everything!!!|
I made my first flight when I was 18 years old. I flew from Virginia to Louisiana to see my then fiancee. ~ yes, I was a mere child~ I do not enjoy the glitches that can and often do happen when you fly but I still think it's one of the best modes of transportation. I "think" I have been to the Outer Banks, it's just been a long time ago.
5. Do the people in your family tend to follow a particular career path, and if so what's the path?
Not really, but both Hubby and his sister and her husband worked for State Farm Insurance. Hubby is still an agent with SF but his sister and her husband have been enjoying retirement for a little over 10 years.
6. What is one thing you absolutely, positively must accomplish today?
I have to prepare lunch for Hubby's office staff. I didn't even completely decide on the menu until Monday and have had it in "high gear" ever since. It will not be anything real fancy but hopefully very tasty and good. It's always a time where Hubby and I try to make them feel very special and appreciated. They are the "grease in the wheel" for sure!
7. This Christmas I hope that our family will have an extra special time together as this will be our last Christmas in this house. The house that has been home to us for 33 years.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
As I mentioned above I am preparing lunch for the staff today. Things are a bit in disarray around here and the dining room has pretty much been striped of all it's decor. It's all been packed up and it now serves as a storage room for the empty boxes waiting to be packed. So, I wanted to do some kind of table scape that might put a little festive look in the room. I am a complete novice when it comes to flower arranging but I did put these together yesterday afternoon and I thought they looked pretty good on the mirrored runner. And, the greenery smells very Christmasey! ~a real plus~
