Back Jack Hodgepodge!

1. What's your favorite time of day? Why?
I love early mornings.  Steaming coffee, ticking clocks, my Bible...
2. Waffle iron, toaster, coffee maker, mixer, blender...which small appliance would you say most needs replacing in your house?
Toaster.  We have the same cheap one we've had since marriage.  It works.  I hide it in the cupboard.  It doesn't fit real bagels though...that is a bummer. 
3. It's National Grouch Day (October 15)...what's something that makes you feel grouchy?
Repeating myself makes me grouchy.  Hmmm... I might be grouchy a lot.  Only on certain days though...I'm full of hormonal fun like that....
4. Ever been to Canada? Is that a country you'd like to visit? According to Trip Advisor, the top ten best destinations in Canada are-Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Quebec City, Victoria, Calgary, Niagara on the Lake, Niagara Falls, Whistler, and Halifax. Which city would you most like to see?
I have been to Canada.  Once on a singing tour and once with my grandparents.  Niagara Falls is beautiful.  Definitely a place I want to take my kiddos.  But, I will never go to the top of that Toronto Tower floor, fear of heights, nuf said.
5. What was your favorite food (or one of your favorites) when you were a child? Is that still a favorite?
I love loving weird things.  I still do.  I eat sardines and saltines with my Daddy.  I eat onion sprouts, pickled herring, liverwurst and pumpernickel with my Grandma.  They are still fun foods to me.  Just today my kids and I were missing Grandpa so we had smoked oysters and saltines for lunch.  Yummy!!!
6. Do you cry easily?
Didn't used to.....but lately I do.  It's a combo of hormonal shifting, circumstances, weather, age...yeah.  So fun...NOT! 
7. Have you started your (gasp!) Christmas shopping? If so when, and how much? If not, when will you even begin thinking about it?
I have!  Just barely....I'll hammer hard here though...I like to be done by Thanksgiving.
8.  Insert your own random thought here.
I have been down and out with an upper respiratory infection.  I'd been attempting a sugar, no gluten, no caffeine.  I think it lowered my immune system and made me vulnerable to the most awful thang out there.  I was flattened for a week...and I still have a bothersome cough.  I do have a wonderful husband though.  SOOOO thankful for him and his sweet care of me!

I'm sorry you're not feeling well. Hope you're back to 100% soon. I do love smoked oysters, but never have them at home. Take care!

I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well! Hope you're back to normal soon. Oysters are one of those things I've never convinced myself to try.

Enjoyed reading your answers! I don't think I've eaten any of hose foods. Toaster is my answer too.

Those are very unusual foods. I'm with you on early mornings, coffee and the Bible. I don't have a ticking clock, though. Hope you are feeling better soon.
