I got to sleep in until 7am this morning so I'm not as tired as I have been. Mom is doing okay. She said the feeling in her fingers is coming back even more and leg is doing a little better.

Good morning, Christmas family

A semi-gloomy day here. It is not really cold but it is certainly not warm either. I was up at 5 a.m. because I just could not sleep any longer. I got on and did all the work that was available and I am desparately hoping that more work comes. I was so tired yesterday that I stopped working sooner than I should. I guess I should have perservered on. Oh well.

Getting a little discouraged with my writing class. I took my second quiz and only got an 80%. I also did my first writing assignment. It was to sit and describe what I saw when I watched a burning candle. I noticed everyone else had lots of feedback about their submissions but mine had none until just a few moments ago and now it finally has one response. Maybe I am not meant to anything with writing except for blogging here. That would be fine. I know I miss the mark quite often here though, too.

Anyway, just to share with all of you, this is what I wrote about watching my candle:

I am sitting quietly in my living room watching the candle I have lit. It is a small votive candle in a holder that is an angel. The fragrence of it is vanilla and reminds me of days gone by when my parents would buy me ice cream cones as a child. The flame is steadfast as it moves and sways and bends effortlessly within the holder. It emits a light and warmth and gentleness as it silently burns. It illuminates the room about me with its gentle brilliance and calmness. It gives me a feeling of warmth and peace within myself.

I dont know what else I could have added. Perhaps it is boring or too short. I dont know. Everyone else seemed to have a lot more to say in their submissions. But then I know I am not supposed to compare myself with others, sorry, a habit I have had all my life. I will persevere on and perhaps I will get better.

Have a wonderful day, Christmas family !! Happy Spring soon !!


80% is probably better than I would have done and My drescription would have went like this-

The wick is burning and the wax is melting.

Cookies, BBQ Pork, and Chocolate cake? That's it. I'm sneaking across the border.

Here's a pic of Harlowe Jean from our morning walk! We had fun running down the street, making our own path.

I am so "not good" with speed stacking! Some of the kids are amazing. I tried to get our principal to buy it for our after-school program, but you can imagine what her answer was!

We were in London this morning, doing taxes this afternoon (yeah! I get a refund!!) Took my son out to the Christain school to teach a speed stack class and now off to work for me.

I hope you are all well and those you love are too. Praying for those who are not.
Have a nice evening everyone!!

Good afternoon everyone! I am home from work a little early, slow again. I had been thinking about changing my time @ work. there's a lady there who is raising her grandson & is part time but has wanted full time. I am always tired & worn out & it had alot to do w/ my decision. I gave up 1 day & she gained that day so it worked out great for us both. I am very happy w/ less hours.
