To all the wonderful people who entered my photography contest: I am terribly sorry for the delay of posting the winners! My sister and I have been working on judging them. This has been an EXTREMELY difficult task because so many wonderful photos were entered! I'm having a hard time picking the winners. :-) Any how, I will try to post them before Christmas. Unfortunately our family's schedule has been a whirlwind of activities. I haven't had much time for computers and whatnot. (Thus, why I haven't posted in a while!) And actually, if I am on the computer, I am working really hard on my book so that I can get it finished before the end of this year. Yes, big goal, but I am determined. :-) This, however, means that I need to be writing about 20-35 pages a day. If you are a writer yourself, you know that this is pretty difficult on some days when you are out of ideas.
Ok, sorry, that was a sidetrack. In any case, I am working on judging and will get those up as soon as I am able! Then, I've got some picture posts coming up (yeah!) of our drama performances, and a fun time with a special friend. ;-) And MAYBE I'll be able to put in a few fun Christmas posts as well... oh, and do the second part of the "Romantic movies" post... hehehe... yikes. Looks like I've got lots on my plate. Well, at least I've got a chance to sit down and write this up. I am currently not in my home, but spending the weekend with some friends. Don't worry, I'm not being rude because the daughter is out with my sister for the moment, the mother's are visiting, and the guys are working.. so yeah. ;-) I feel rather distant from my blogging friends, though! Thank you for your sporadic comments. They really made my day! It's fun to get comments even on posts that are pretty old... =D
Alright, I guess that is about it for my ramblings. Oh yeah, has any one gotten any snow?? Supposedly we are going to get about 6 inches. And where are we? away from home, of course! Argh! I hate missing the first snow. Oh well!
Any one got their Christmas decorations up yet? We would have had ours done by now on our 'normal' schedules, but haven't had time yet! I'm looking forward to getting everything out and making the house look festive. We live so far away from civilization that we don't put any lights around the outside of the house. Ok, ok, so we're 7 miles away from the nearest town. So, Dad doesn't think we should put any lights up. Quite personally I don't care either way. I like the outside ones, but don't go outside at night enough to really enjoy them (on our house). At least the inside is pretty!
Ok, so I have one more question for you. Do you put a Star or an Angel on the top of your tree (if you have a tree)?
Alright. I'm signing off now, for real. ;-) Thank you for your comments! I love hearing from you.
Have a blessed weekend full of joy, family, and the Love of Christ's in your hearts.
In Christ's service,
