it’s been awhile…

add_toon_info.gifI can’t believe it’s been this long since I last blogged!  Life has been really busy for us.  Here is what I’ve been up to:

I got a surprise reading through The Message.  I am just over halfway through.  I LOVED The Message paraphrase of the book of Job and I am loving the Proverbs, too.  BUT I really got bogged down in the Psalms.  I didn’t expect that at all.  I don’t know if it is because the Psalms are so familiar or it was just the modern day wording isn’t as poetic, but I really didn’t enjoy the Psalms very much.  I found myself constantly trying to compare it to the NIV version in my head while I read which made it difficult to concentrate of what it was saying.

15 years!  Donald and I celebrated our 15th anniversary yesterday.  It was fun because Donald planned a whole evening out and didn’t let me in on any of it.  We drove to Old Towne Alexandria and strolled through the shops.   We visited the Torpedo Factory and looked in all the windows of the artist shops.  We visited the Christmas Shop and resisted the urge to buy.  At this point we also decided it was time to take out our Christmas music at home…not waiting till Thanksgiving this year.  I love Christmas music!  Then we just strolled through any interesting shops we found on the next few blocks.  Donald made reservations for us to eat at a very nice restaurant.  The food was delicious.  I really enjoyed it!

Running errands, weekly coffee with a friend, homeschooling my little kids, playing taxi for my big kids, planning Bible lessons, attending Life Groups, and just everyday housework…that’s pretty much it.
