The Wednesday Medley



It's Wednesday and Terri is graciously providing us with questions each week and I, for one, am so appreciative of her.  Now on to the questions for this week.........


1.  On November 28th, 1995, President Bill Clinton ended the 55 MPH nationwide speed limit that began in 1974 as an energy saving measure during the Mid-East oil embargo.  If you are old enough to remember this (I sure am) did it make you happy?  Do you have a heavy foot when driving or does 55 MPH sound good to you?
I well remember this.  I do not have a heavy foot but 55mph is a bit slow if you are on a divided highway or interstate.  I drive about 65 on the highway and rarely over 68.  I'm not real comfortable at a higher speed.

2.  You are home alone on a rainy/snowy Sunday afternoon.  What Christmas movie will you watch?

Any Hallmark Christmas movie.  I watch them each morning while I'm on the elliptical and it makes the time just fly by and they all leave me feeling good.

3.  What is something you have tried that you will never try again?

Many, many years ago I took a bite of licorice and spit it halfway across the room.  I had never tasted anything so horrible in my life and I have not and will not ever try it again.  It is just plain GROSS!!!!

4.  Today is National French Toast Day!!  Will you have some?  Do you like French Toast?

I will not be having any today but I do like it.  I can't really remember the last time I had actual French Toast but I do make a delicious French Toast casserole and I had some of that last week.

5.  The Christmas Tree in Rockefeller Center will be lighted today, as will the one at the White House in Washington, D.C.  Do you have your tree up and is it lighted?  Have you ever been in New York City or Washington, D.C. to see the trees all lit up during the holidays?

This is a picture of our tree last year.  Our tree will go up tomorrow.  I have the other Christmas touches done.  I have been to both Washington D.C. and NYC, but not during the Christmas season.  Perhaps I need to add that to my "bucket list." ~grin~

6.  Tell us something random about this week of yours.
I'm not sure how random this is but I'm finishing up wrapping my gifts.  I have been wrapping them as they come in but do have a couple that I did not stop and wrap when they arrived.  I say arrived because 90% of my shopping has been done online.  It is the easiest shopping in the world.  Some folks like to "see and feel" before they buy but not me.  Generally my daughter and DIL just send me links to the things for the Grans and "boom," just like that it's DONE!

  2. I can't wait to see your new tree all decorated and the rest of your lovely home bedecked for Christmas. I know most do not understand my delight in not doing that any more. But is has been so liberating and stress free to not have to worry about putting it all up and coming home to take it down. Online shopping has taken on a life of its own, hasn't it. Great way to shop!

  3. I despise black licorice! The tree in my dinning room looks exactly like yours from last year! Hallmark heaven! You have a great day sugar plum! xo

  4. Wow. I'm impressed that all is bought and wrapped already. I'm getting more into online shopping especially now that we've moved to the country and don't have many shopping options. I'm getting some good chuckles from the things that won't be tried again! ha! My google comment link won't take you to my medley. The link up will.

  6. My daughters are doing that too. It makes it so much easier to "shop" for them. I'm all about easy. French Toast Casserole? That sounds delightful. I'll have top see if I can find a recipe.

  7. Finished wrapping Gifts???!! Wow! You are amazing and so is that tree. I did have French Toast this morning and it was a disappointment and waste of calories. I wish I could get inspired to exercise.

  8. I feel like such an underachiever. I have yet to get inspired to start decorating. And wrapping? I'm the daughter of a woman who wrapped all our gifts in tinfoil because it went with our silver tree. Your tree is beautiful - even if it is a photo from last year! Have a great week, Lea.

  10. I may get into more on-line shopping this next year. I think I might be ready for that.

    Your tree from last year was beautiful. I look forward to seeing this year's tree!

  11. Online shopping is the way to go. After we eat Thanksgiving dinner my daughter and daughter in law go to Amazon and put all the presents for my babies in my cart. Then just like that my shopping is done!

  12. I love Hallmark movies too! Oh they make me so happy. They were my answers also.
    I also do not care for licorice.
    Your Christmas tree is beautiful! I have several gifts bought, I am hoping to wrap some and get them under the tree over the weekend. Loved your answers! Enjoy the rest of the week.

  13. Oh, I so agree with you on shopping on-line! I just don't enjoy going in the stores anymore. Thank you so much for joining in on the Medley today!! I happen to love licorice, so would have taken any you had off your hands! LOL

  14. How did I miss this post? Anyway, I don't like french toast or licorice:) I pretty much drive the speed limit or less ALWAYS... not my husband, he goes a little above:) On-line shopping has been my way mostly this year. A couple shopping days out and that's enough for me:) Wrapping, I could use your help! Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  15. Black licorice IS the all-time worst!

  16. Black licorice is just plain NASTY!!! French toast...YUM!!! Talk about polar opposites. My goal is to get my tree up today or tomorrow, so I guess I'd better get moving. Happy weekend sweet Ci-Ci😉 (have you ever been to one of those yogurt shops? They have them in Nashville❤️)

  17. WHAT? You don't like licorice???? I LOOOVE it! :)
    I have no desire to get out in the hustle & bustle...online shopping is the way to go!

  18. Yes, I love shopping online for everyone! I just sent all of my closest girlfriends Hallmark watching tee shirts as a surprise Christmas gift. I watch Hallmark Christmas movies while I wrap. Still have a lot to do, but have quite a bit done. Hooray! Hate the wrapping the most.
    Haha - yes I remember when the law was changed to 55 and back again. When I first learned to drive we could drive 70 on the freeway by us and within the year it went to 55 - drat. Love to drive fast, but not fast enough to get a speeding ticket, and I like to make black licorice caramels - much better than the storebought, but you do have to like that flavor.
