If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

Wednesday Hodgepodge

Click on the above button to join in with Joyce and the 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 seldom take a "selfie", however that could change if I get an iPhone in February.  It probably won't though, because I don't like pics of myself. Here is one I took of me and Lily.


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 will be sending a few.  No they are not ready yet.  

3. Do you trust easily?
Yes, until the trust is broken and then it's real hard for me to ever trust that person again.

4. Pine-cinnamon-peppermint-vanilla (as in sugar cookie)...of those listed, which one is your favorite December scent?
Vanilla is one of my all time favorites anytime of the year.  

5. Did you do more talking or more listening yesterday? Was that by choice or necessity?
Probably talking...I wasn't called "Chatty Cathy" for nothing when I was growing up. lol

6. What's the last song that got stuck in your head? Sorry if it's back there now : )
I woke up last night with "Christmas Island" running through my head.


7. Which world explorer (in the whole history of the world) would you most like to have traveled with, and why?
I'm not sure I'd really like to travel with any of them.  I think I like being comfortable too much.  But if I were to choose, it would be Neil Armstrong.  I think I would have liked to walk on the moon with him.  Not that I would ever have that much nerve.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
We're starting to puppy shop.  I'm trying to make myself wait until after Christmas, but I'm not sure I can stand to wait that long.  haha  

We got the tree up tonight, but it's not decorated.  One step at a time, people, one step at a time! 

Well it's a start!  lol


  1. Love those pretty colored lights on your tree, Cathy, and how they reflect on the ceiling and the wall. Ours went up on Saturday. Great selfie shot of you and your furry pal! What kind of puppy are you looking to get? I often wish dogs could stay puppies forever...minus all the messes, of course!

  2. I love the colored lights! And you did a great job with the selfie. In my attempts, usually only half of me makes it into the picture : ) Have a great day!

  3. The tree is soooooooooo pretty!!! And I'm glad to see it's an artificial tree...keep those beautiful pine trees in the forest alive!!! Love the pic of you and your furbaby!!

  4. Your tree looks great. I kind of enjoy doing it one step at a time. At least that's what I tell myself. :) What kind of puppy are you going to get? So much fun!

  5. Your tree looks pretty with just the lights lit. I need to get my Christmas cards bought! Cute selfie!

  6. Puppy hunting... ohh... I'm excited for you!!! :)

  7. The colored lights remind me of our trees when we were kids. And a new puppy! How exciting. Our dog, Trudy, is 14 and seems to have aged so much in the past year. She's always acted like a puppy. Stepping out on the moon might be very exciting, but I think I don't want to make the trip there and back.

  8. Puppy hunting sounds fun! Good luck :) As pretty as your tree is with lights only, I can only imagine how beautiful it will be fully decorated! (My living room tree has been sitting, with only lights and garland, for 3 days!) Like you said, "One step at a time!"

  9. Love your tre and especially like the colored lights! So many trees now just have white lights. Sorry, I like the different colors. We had the same answer of #3. Have fun puppy shopping, new life is always fun.

  10. I don't care for pictures of myself and when I try a selfie they come out so bad! My cards may go out next week, my goal is that they get them before Christmas. I'm so glad I got my trees done before my trip, now I'm thinking I may just leave the other decorations packed up!

  11. I don't like pictures of myself either and my selfie all look crazy! I hope to work on my cards soon, just so they get them by Christmas I'm okay with that. Glad I did my trees before vacation because now I'm thinking of leaving all the other decorations packed up this year. The house looks festive but not overloaded!

  12. I don't like selfies of myself and never like pictures of me anyway. Haven't started my cards yet but hopefully soon! I am glad I got my trees up before my trip. Now I'm thinking of leaving it at that and leaving the other decorations packed up.

  13. Sorry, if you get three comments from me!!!


Thanks for visiting and commenting. Have a wonderful Day!
