Okay, CM3. Now you have done it! You are making me come out there! (LOL!!!) Do not talk about my friend like that! She is a great writer. I have some suggestions that I think you will like, and I will tell you about them when we get back from Chico.

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 !!
