Mamma in her Kerchief and I in my HodgePodge



Had just settled our brains for a long week's break. Well, the break actually comes next week as Joyce, our lovely host, will be traveling. Lucky girl. She sure travels a lot. I'd love to be her travel buddy. lol. Anywhoo, back to the Hodgepodge for this week. The last one of 2010.

1. Share your Christmas Eve traditions. We don't really have traditions for Christmas Eve. Our activities for that day always depend on the hubs work schedule. This year he happens to be off for both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Wooohoooo. We'll be making up our own traditions this year.

2. What was the best book you read in 2010? (we're not going to include The Bible here) Honestly, I did very little recreational reading in 2010. Something that will be different in 2011.

3. Do you have pets and if so do you allow them on the furniture? We do not have any pets. Getting one is still being debated. I'll let you know.

4. What event from 2010 are you most thankful for? Graduating! Are you tired of hearing that yet? Sorry if you are. I still think it's a big stinkin deal.

5. What did you do in 2010 that you'd never done before. Loaded up my Harley and went on a road trip with my pal, Jessica.

6. Brussel sprouts...friend or foe? I love Brussel sprouts. In fact, we are having them as one of the veggies for our Christmas Day dinner.

7. Who would you nominate for man/woman of the year? My wonderful husband. He puts up with all my shenanigans and travel adventures. 

8. Insert your own random thought here. Today is my last day of work for 2010. I'm off for 12 days and looking forward to spending some relaxing time at home. Hey. Maybe I'll even get started on the reading list. I'm definitely going to be trying some new recipes so watch for those.

Thank you for stopping by and visiting. Do you have Christmas Eve traditions. Please leave me a comment or hop on over to Joyce's at From This Side of the Pond and link up.
 
Like other bloggers, I'll be taking a break for a few days. Please join me in celebrating the birth of Jesus. The Gift and the Giver. Have a very, Merry Christmas.

Peace and Joy,
Susan

Luke 2:8-11 (NKJV) 8 Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. 10 Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. 11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.

Yay for hubby being off both days! Graduating from college: that's a big accomplishment, so keep on patting yourself on the back! You definitely deserve it!

I always enjoy your answers. I hope you and your hubs have a wonderful and relaxing Christmas together!

Friday I mailed the books to all of the BFTH winners. Except somehow your package-all addressed and ready to go-decided to stay back in a corner. Sigh. I finally got it in the mail yesterday. Hopefully it won't take too terribly long to get to you!
