A Sweet Wednesday Medley

It's just like the Wednesday Hodgepodge, but with a new name and a new "hostess with the mostess"! Much thanks to Terri for continuing our Wednesday Q&A...I'm looking forward to being reacquainted with old friends and meeting new ones.

1.  Wednesday, December 19, 2018, is National Hard Candy Day! So the first question today is to ask if you enjoy hard candy, especially the kind we usually see during this festive time of year?  What is your favorite?  Which hard candy brings up the best memories for you if any?

I absolutely LOVE hard candy! I just bought some yesterday and am considering going back & stocking up ‘cause it doesn’t stay around forever, ya know! 
I went into a classroom to get a student, and the teacher gave me this:
How's that for timing?
My mom used to make hard candy...cinnamon was my favorite. Seeing the homemade shards of hard candy brings back memories, but a Jolly Rancher really brings back great memories of going to Texas on vacation. My great Uncle Pete was a “candy man”. He had a van full of candy that he delivered (I think). At the end of our vacation, he let Mom go into the van and get candy for us. Watermelon Jolly Ranchers are just the best ever!

2.  Holiday shopping!  Are you finished? If you could spend an entire day in just one store, which one would it be and why?

I’ve done no shopping this year, at least not out in the store. I bought my SIL’s and my MIL’s gifts through SERRV, which is a fair-trade online store.
I have no idea if I’m finished or not. I have no desire to get out in the craziness of shopping areas; it’s bad enough being out in the crazy traffic!
If I could spend an entire day in one store...hmmmmm...Office Depot?

3.  What holiday dessert describes you and why?

Pumpkin Roll: Traditional and just a little nutty.

4.  What is your least favorite holiday side dish?

Cooked vegetables. Unless it has lots of cheese in it, I'll pass.

5.  Now be real!! There is one on almost every tree. What is the ugliest tree ornament you have ever seen?

I gotta tell you: Target had some pretty ugly ones this year! They just looked so cheap and not pretty at all.

6.  Tell us something random about your week!!

We had our family gathering last Sunday: 6 out of 10 of us were there. It’s always a good time seeing everybody; just wish everyone had been there & we had more time to visit. 
Thanks again, Terri, for hosting! Want to get in on the Wednesday Medley? Check her blog Your Friend from Florida on Tuesdays to get the questions, then don't forget to link up on Wednesdays!


  1. I'd forgotten about those tins of Christmas Candy. I remember those! I think there was a cherry one with a liquid filling that I really liked as a kid.

  2. Cooked vegetables?! I'm all about the vegetbable sides, as long as they're not overcooked and too 'saucy'. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  3. Your answer to ugly ornaments reminded me of a quick trip I made to Big Lots and they too had plenty of ugly ornaments! Merry Christmas!

  4. I love watermelon Jolly Ranchers, too! Just didn't mention them in my answer because I didn't think they were Christmassy. Have a great day and a blessed Christmas!

  5. Those tins of Christmas candies are so good and what I am talking about on my wendesday medley...the ribbon ones are the ones I am trying to explain.
    Watermelon jolly ranchers are yummo!!! Your family get together sounds wonderful! Loved your answers! Have a great week.


  6. Thanks for joining in on today's Medley!! I enjoyed your answers and especially your #3! Good catching up, Mary!!
