Today Wayne and I will officially become deacons in our church. We were selected a few months ago and today is the day we get the role. I am a little nervous since we will be in charge of communion and collecting the offering. I get a little "stage fright" doing things like that but I am sure once I am in the role of it I will be fine. I think Wayne is comfortable with it since he teaches Sunday School from time to time and have read scripture to the congregation but keep me in thoughts and prayer that I do well.

I'm not as comfortable with it as you think. I have never been a Deacon before, so it is something new for both of us. but I know they will tell us everything we need to know before asking us to do anything.

Good morning, Christmas friends. It is raining here in northern California, so I guess my snow wish, except of the tiny amount yesterday, is a no-go this year. I keep hoping, though! Yesterday I finished up boxes of teacher stuff in the garage. Today I plan to work on scrapbooking and organizing reading groups for school. I hope everyone has a great day. Only 52 more posts and we will be right on target for the 55 posts needed per day to reach 20,000 for 2011. Some days we may meet it and some days, maybe not. No matter! We can catch up as needed!

All kidding aside, I am like Auntie with New Years resolutions. I don't like making them for the very same reason.

I did make some awesome changes for myself last year and will stick with it all through 2011. I eat extremely healthy all the time and have been for a long time. It's a habit and a good one. I didn't do this for weight loss but to improve my overall health and I am feeling better every day. It was a little difficult during the whole Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday but I stayed with it! Yay me!

I do hope to add in a good workout routine now that I am feeling better but don't want to make it a resolution just in case I fail.
Lifestyle changes are different than Fad diets, I'm getting my Group Fitness Instructors Papers this year - just for fun!
I miss my chocolate turtles, but allowed myself some eggnog over the holidays and when I grave chocolate I sink my teeth into a juicy and sweet Clementine orange instead, it seems to counteract the craving.

Good Morning, my New Year Friends!

Yes, another year of "counting on each other" has begun.
And hey! At yesterday's pace, racing past our 2010 thread count will be a breeze!
We had 102 posts for Jan 1.
Doing the math, at that rate we will reach over 37,000 posts by the end of 12-31-11. That's THIRTY-SEVEN THOUSAND, guys!!! (Let that figure sink in before you read our next figures.)

Our next figures:
Days to the Season: 315
Days to Christmas Day: 357
And as you can see, the 300-day window to the Season, our first Milestone of the year, arrives a mere 2 weeks from tomorrow!

OK! That all "figures", doesn't it?

A warm, wet start here to the new year.
It was actually in the 50's when I got up and with the overcast skies and off-and-on rain, we have been holding nearly steady at 59.
The 60's are promised for this afternoon before cold weather begins its returm tomorrow.

You have a Super Sunday, Guys!
(Only 45 more of them until Christmas Season 2011 begins on Nov 13!)

G'Morning everyone, Happy 2011!!! Going out for a bit to hit the 75 recent off sales today. I have kept my eye on a clock down at the drug store. It has a Thomas Kincaid picture on it and plays a Christmas carol every hour . I cant wait to put the batteries in it and have Christmas every hour, everyday!! I wish I could get everyone on here one of them!
