Wednesday's Hodgepodge

Visit Joyce and join the fun!

1. According to Oxford Dictionaries, the 2013 word of the year is 'selfie'. Your thoughts? When did you last take a selfie? Do you post them online somewhere?  Do you prefer to be in front of the camera or behind the lens?

Well it is a cute word, isn't it?  I have had pictures taken of myself before starting a weight loss or workout program but since I didn't take them myself not sure if that counts.  I don't mind getting my picture taken as long as I am with those I love.

2. Will you send out Christmas cards this year? If so, are they ready to go? If not, are you glad or sad about leaving that tradition behind?

Yes, I am planning on sending out Christmas cards this year.  No they are not ready.  I still need to take pictures for them.

3. Do you trust easily?

I think so, although maybe not with strangers.  I like to think it is being alert rather than  not trusting ;)

4. Pine-cinnamon-peppermint-vanilla (as in sugar cookie)...of those listed, which one is your favorite December scent?

I love cinnamon although I tend to think of it as a fall scent.  For December I'll say peppermint.  I like peppermint tea and Burt's Bees makes my favorite lip balm which is peppermint.  I need lots of lip balm with the cold weather.

5. Did you do more talking or more listening yesterday? Was that by choice or necessity?

It feels like I did more listening.  Don't moms do a lot of listening?

6. What's the last song that got stuck in your head? Sorry if it's back there now :  )

"Rich Girl" by Hall and Oates.  Cole on The Voice sung it last night and it has a very catchy tune.

7. Which world explorer (in the whole history of the world) would you most like to have traveled with, and why? 

To be honest I wouldn't have wanted to explore with any of them.  I am reading through US History with my children and really the traveling conditions were awful.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Have a great week :)


  1. Moms sure DO a while lot of listening. :) I hope you have had a wonderfully blessed week.

  2. LOL your #7 ! ;) I don't blame you there. I also chose peppermint, i am not sure if you have a Trader Joe's where you live but they have the best peppermint hot cocoa, only sold during Christmastime! They also sell out quickly like their peppermint bark!

  3. You are right about moms doing a lot of listening! :-) I am so with you on the world explorers - it was tough stuff, and it is hard to imagine enduring all the elements. But I sure am glad they were courageous and adventurous.

  4. Moms definitely do a lot of listening! I'm sure Marco Polo would have lived to regret taking me along on his expeditions : )

  5. I like cinnamon, too, but, also, think of it as a fall fragrance.

    I know what you mean about explorers. I didn't choose one either!

  6. I totally agree with your #7!! Enjoyed your answers!
