3.  Where will you eat Thanksgiving dinner? 
Being an Aussie we don't actually celebrate Thanksgiving but I may make a pumpkin pie for us to eat :D



4.  What is your favorite time of day?
Usually its when the house is dead quiet. It doesn't happen a lot these days but when it does its divine!

5.  Did you start Christmas shopping yet?
I started my shopping last year on Boxing Day when all the sales started. I know call me crazy. I like shopping throughout the year. The trick is to make sure you have Christmas wrapping paper so that you can wrap things as you buy them or I am tempted to give things away as Birthday present.

I'm with you on number one. I can never have enough time to crochet! But for everything else....Uhhhh...I don't celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas. I'm not a big fan of pumpkin pie. (I prefer sweet potato pie by a long shot!) And my time of the day that I love is any time that I wake up and find out I'm still breathing!! LOL {Actually I do like early early in the morning.}

Poetess, I've never tried sweet potato pie. I might just have to find a recipe and make one. If it helps my boys eat vegetables then I am all for it :D

All this talk about food is making me hungry! The soup looks good, the pie looks good...it all looks good :) Have a great week!

Jo-anne *Blossy* said...

Thanks Yvonne, I hope you have a good week too!

Visiting from MMOM. I don't think any of us take enough time for those things that give us so much pleasure. Enjoyed reading your blog. Have a good week and drop by for a visit.

Jo-anne *Blossy* said...

Thanks ArtyMarti. I hope you have a good week too :)

Hi Blossy, thanks for visiting my blog! Thanksgiving is a great holiday, one of my favorites, not just because of the food but because it gives us a chance to show gratitude, which we don't see enough of these days :(. I applaud you for spreading out your Christmas shopping. It's less stressful and more economical that way (so long as you remember what you purchased so you don't buy it twice!). Have a pleasant week.

I think you are wise to start your shopping ASAP and take advantage of the sales. I've done the same thing before :)

Nani said...

I totally understand the need to wrap the things you buy so you don't give them early!!

Jo-anne *Blossy* said...

Thanks for stopping by Arlene. I think we should have a day to be thankful here too. I don't think many Aussies think about what they are grateful for.
With the Christmas presents I make a list of what I have bought & who I bought it. That way I don't double up :)

Jo-anne *Blossy* said...

edshunnybunny, its a good idea :) it certainly helps the budget to spread it out like that.

Jo-anne *Blossy* said...

Thanks Nani. It's so tempting to give them early if I don't wrap them :)

Karen said...

There is never enough craft time! LOL Do you have a recipe for yellow split pea soup? It sounds wonderful.

Jo-anne *Blossy* said...

Hi Karen, you're right there never seems to be enough time :)
I do have a recipe. You can go here http://blossyscookbook.blogspot.com/search?q=pea+soup to find it
