Volume 290
Thank you Joyce!
Head on over and join us....

1. Are you more task oriented or people oriented? Elaborate.

Heck I don't know.....I'll go with task oriented. 

2. December 15 is National Wear Your Pearls you own/wear pearls? If you're a man answering the question, does your sweetheart own or wear pearls? Everyone share a 'pearl of wisdom' with us here today.

No I don't own pearls. "You can't make everyone happy, you are not a bottle of wine"

3. Speaking of pearls...oysters? Are you a fan or not a fan? If you answered yes, tell us your favorite way to eat oysters? If you said no, be honest-have you ever tried one or does just the idea of eating an oyster make you gag a little?

I am not a fan of oysters. Yes I have tried them, they were okay but not something I need to eat again. 

4. Time Magazine has named President-elect Donald Trump Person of the Year. Let's take presidents and presidential candidates out of the mix for a minute. If a political figure had not been chosen who would you name Man or Woman of the Year for 2016?

Sorry, I don't watch the news or read the newspaper so I have no idea who is worthy. 

However I will accept this award because this years Christmas decorating has been a huge challenge  for me and I deserve an award for all my efforts. 

I'm not even done yet. Last week was decorating which took longer than usual. This week is cards and out of town gifts. Next week is baking!!! 

5. The Pantone Color of the Year for 2017 has been announced, and it's a vibrant green aptly named-greenery. Your thoughts? Is this a color currently in your home or wardrobe? Will you add something in this shade for the new year? 

I think the color is nice. I could see myself using it or painting a wall with it. 

6. Today I've had too much___to do___.

My goal this week is to get all the out of town gifts organized and shipped out along with our Christmas cards. 

7. Share a favorite lyric from a favorite Christmas carol.

The carol is "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" with Judy Garland singing it. The lyrics I like from this song are:

"Someday soon we all with be together, if the fates allow. Until then we'll have to muddle through somehow. So have yourself a merry little Christmas now."

Actually I want this song at my memorial service because of that verse. I want everyone to know that we will all be together someday and that they will make it through Christmas without me, they just have to have faith in God. 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Cute cartoon, and isn't that the truth?! Hope you're feeling better Debby. Take it easy and enjoy all your decorations.

LOL with the cartoon :) You really outdo yourself with Christmas, but I know you enjoy doing what you do! Make sure you allow a few minutes to yourself! I like that color of green; not sure I'd do all walls with it, but maybe as an accent color it would go well :)

Love your random Debby! lol

I came back to delete my negative comments. some of these questions pushed a few of my hot buttons. sorry. love the cartoon and hope you feel beter today . I don't have a favorite song, but I do like your favorite and because someone is using it for back ground music in a commercial, I find it in my head a lot these days

Paula Kaye said...

Loved your little cartoon. And isn't that the truth? Merry Christmas


Loved your responses today. I hope your holidays are wonderful. I have been very ill and just wish I could feel better this year.

You know that pantone green matches the leaves on your side wall - nice. I am too busy too. Loved the cartoon!! I have a pair of pearls that were my mother's. I don't like oysters either and I don't think they are good if you have health problems anyway. And I love your decorations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Merry Christmas.

Nani said...

Hehe… not a bottle of wine… or a jar of Nutella!

I love the Christmas lights cartoon.

Ha! I love your pearl of wisdom :)
Decorating does seem to be more challenging as time goes by... I cut a few corners, this year.
I love your little cartoon in #8.

The only thing close to pearls that I have are some fake pearl earrings. I've tried oysters before and I hated them

I'm definitely more task oriented than people oriented!

Mevely317 said...

Dang, but your answer to #7 makes my eyes all water-ey. Beautiful thought!

Chuckles about the bottle of wine. So true!

Little Penpen said...

Love the cartoon! I've been seeing pics of your trees and decor on Facebook. And yes! You deserve the title Person of the Year!! Beautiful!!

Mara said...

I would love that green to be a bit darker and then on my walls.

I am not sure about my favourite Christmas lyrics. I know so many songs and it's really hard to choose.

Love the funny at the end.

Alexis AKA MOM said...

That color would be nice as an accent wall!

LOL I had to laugh out loud on the Christmas Light pic :)

Kendra HeadlessMom said...
