Wednesday Hodgepodge: Breads, Brights, Books

Here are the questions to this week's Wednesday Hodgepodge. Answer on your own blog, then hop back tomorrow [click the graphic] to link answers with your friends and strangers. See you there! 

From this Side of the Pond

1. Three things you're grateful for this first week of November? 

1. The bread machine we thrifted recently. Our third, actually, but we haven't had one for the past few  years. So far we've made bread (duh), sub rolls, dinner rolls for Thanksgiving, burger buns (we just used the sub roll recipe), and pizza dough.

2. The colours of fall outside our back door

3. A thrifted jacket in a bright colour.

2. Is Daylight Savings Time a thing where you live? Do you think we should continue setting the clocks forward and back? Why or why not? If you could add an extra hour to your day would you want it added morning-noon-night? Do you think it likely you'd be more productive or more likely that you'd just waste more time? 

I think it just makes life more confusing.

3. Who is  your favorite author? Your favorite book by your favorite author? 

Depends on the day and the season. Pilgrim's Progress is a longtime favourite.
But this year has also been a good one for reading poetry, and I'm very happy to finally have the AmblesideOnline Poetry Anthology on our shelves. This is a project I helped with over the summer, but it took this long to get my own set of the books. (Shameless plug?)

4. It's National Sandwich Day...will you celebrate? How often do you eat a sandwich? What's your favorite? 

Years ago this area had a sandwich franchise with an artery-blowing option full of cheese and black olives. But that's long gone.

If we were having lunch out, I'd probably order a club or a grilled cheese. At home? maybe peanut butter and banana.

5. Have you started your Christmas shopping? If so when did you start? If not when will you start? Do you give more or fewer gifts than you did five years ago? 

Yes, a little, because we keep getting reminded this year that if we don't order something early, we might not get it at all.

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

Worst idea ever: television sets over dentists' chairs.

I've been reading through Pilgrim's Progress. Your book has a great cover! Yum peanut butter and banana. I'd add a little honey, too. Happy November and Hodgepodge to you!

I agree. the time changes are confusing! Ugghh. I wish it would just stay the same.
