1. Are you cooking Christmas dinner? How many will be round your table this year? What are we having?
I do not typically cook Christmas dinner; Mom and Gloria usually take that job. Occasionally, I contribute, but Christmas dinner is much lower-key at our house than Thanksgiving. We may have sandwiches or something, but I haven't heard the menu this year.
2. What is one must-have Christmas cookie in your house?
Shortbread. Always. It's an easy cookie to make, and it's something I do fairly well.
3. Santa likes a glass of milk with his cookies. Do you? What kind of milk is on tap at your house-skim? almond? soy? full fat (Gasp!)
It's full fat, vitamin D milk at our house, but we aren't really milk-drinkers. I keep the full fat version around because it's lower in carbs and better for women with PCOS.
4. Time magazine recently named their 'Person of the Year' for 2011. This is the person the editors believe had the greatest impact, for better or worse, in the past year. This year they chose 'The Protester'. Your thoughts? Who would you name Person of the Year for 2011?
Oh, I don't know. According to their list, I guess The Princess, but those people don't really impact my community or my family. Around here, I think The Soldier would be high on the list--there are several coming home, and one in particular whose parents can't wait to see him. (Happy to have you home, Sawyer!) In my life, I guess anyone would be labeled an Encourager or a Prayer. The list is longer and more distinguished this year than in years past.
5. December 21st is National Flashlight Day... when was the last time you needed a flashlight and did you know right where to find one?
I needed one when I put my sideboard together last week. Luckily, I have one on my phone :)
6. candy canes...yum or yuck?
Love 'em in their own right. Don't care for them chopped over my chocolate.
7. What Christmas carol lyric means the most to you?
I've always been partial to "Oh come let us adore Him." It's haunting to me...and six short words fill me completely. Odd how that happens, eh?
8. Insert your own random thought here.
One last gift to buy. Grades are entered. I got an A in my grad class. Sleep in heavenly peace, indeed.
