Wednesday Hodgepodge

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?
I definitely prefer to be behind the camera, however I have taken a selfie--I had a new haircut and wanted my daughters opinion.  I do not post selfies on line.

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?
I will send out a few handmade cards to close friends and family.

3. Do you trust easily?
I find it very hard to trust, having been burned so many times in the past.  I have to pray daily for a trusting, kind spirit.

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

5. Did you do more talking or more listening yesterday? Was that by choice or necessity?
I always listen more than I talk.  It is amazing what I learn when I keep my mouth shut.

6. What's the last song that got stuck in your head? Sorry if it's back there now :  )
Probably "Lucky" by Jason Mraz

7. Which world explorer (in the whole history of the world) would you most like to have traveled with, and why? 
Jack Cousteau, I love all the things that he saw and experienced.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
This year I am participating in the Advent Conspiracy. Our church is part of a group of churches trying to change the emphasis from commercialism to showing the true meaning of Christmas. As part of this, I am cutting back on my Christmas gift giving, and sending the money through the church to Mozambique to provide 5 fresh water wells for the people. Tens of thousands of people over there die each year from diseases due to of lack of clean water. I think that giving the gift of health is more important than giving my friends and family things that they don't want or need. I will still give a little remembrance to them, but try to save enough to make a significant contribution to the Mozambique project.
