Seems like this fall has taken on a life of its own and have neglected some aspects of my life while making progress in others. I finished yet another class towards my master's degree - three more to go! I've also been extremely active in several nonprofit ventures in my community, one of which wrapped up two weeks ago and another which is ramping up on Monday. Usually, I make quarterly goals but this fall I didn't seem to manage to make any as I never took a chance to sit down to contemplate. I am continuing my annual goal of reading the entire Bible this year. It has become such a habit that the few mornings when I'm not able to do it, something seems amiss in my life. I'm WAY behind on reading my friends' blogs and am hoping, with my one week break between classes, to be able to catch up. As of today, I have over 700 blog posts to read!
I recently got a nice surprise from my friend Shona of LALA dex press. A package arrived with two things I love: a book and a journal. Shona passed on the book In Praise of Slowness (which I need to take time to savor!) and a beautiful journal she hand made from ledger paper that her office was discarding. (The photo doesn't do the journal any justice.) Two of my favorite "R's": reading and recycling - plus "riting"! Thank you so much, Shona!
