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!!

my son is very good at it, he won a bronze at the provincials.
The sets of cups are expensive but so worth it, the kids have to work hard to master it and get good at it. Our church has a set which is where Ray got his start. He now has 5 or 5 sets of his own and loves teaching it.

We are going to Chico to do a little shopping. I am glad to have some coins in my pocket. I think I will spend money like I got it!!! I received a package just moments ago that had my three new purses in it. I bought two and got the third one for free!!! These are some of the best purses EVER!!! Go to gigihill.com and look over their stuff. Now I have something to carry my jingle in, LOL!

Anyone have anything planned for the weekend? Nothing that I can think of here. DH works daylight both days and since I work night shift until Monday, it doesn't leave much room for anything. I also have to take call for 7p to 11p on Sunday night, before my shift, but I have a bad feeling I will get called in. It's been busy at work.

Well, off to watch some tv with the kids and lay here for awhile, then off to nap! Talk to you guys later! God Bless!

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 !!

I think it was beautifully written, and loved it!!

It was descriptive and told a story about what memories it evoked in you.

You don't give yourself enough credit.

Hang in there! You're already awesome!!
