Slacker

Yes, I’ve been slacker of a blogger as of late.  I don’t even really have a good excuse.  School is out. Life has slowed down.  I guess I just haven’t felt like writing.  Not that things haven’t been exciting.  🙂

Usually I convey my excitement for Christmas much sooner.  I have to say, being so busy with school, Christmas really snuck (sneaked?) up me! Usually I have nearly all my shopping done before Thanksgiving.  This year I hadn’t remotely thought of gifts by Thanksgiving.  In fact, I just finished yesterday.  BUT….I finished. 🙂  I guess it’s a good thing that I’m starting to get excited about Christmas since it’s in less than a week.  I have all sorts of goodies I plan to make this week and get this. I actually have time!! 😀 I sincerely miss baking so I look forward to spending some quality time with my apron. haha

It’s a relief to be done with school, but I have to say that was the most fun quarter so far!  It’s so much fun to take classes that are actually practical.  I mean, ok, when I took Biology I will admit that I dumped all of it out of my brain the minute my final was over.  But the music classes, I soak it all up and can apply it to my playing and teaching.  I wish I could do MORE music classes. There’s so much I want to do that SVC doesn’t offer. Kind of disappointing but oh well.  I have quite the load this next quarter (17 credits but worth 21) but I think it will be equally fun.

On my break I’ve resumed my work in the print shop.  I have missed that place!  Every time I print a book I think about who will be reading it later and I pray for them.  I pray that God will use these books to strengthen their walk with Him.  I just love this ministry.

Last Friday, our SPG (Singles Pleasing God) group went to Seattle to see Handel’s Messiah. It was incredible, as usual.  I don’t know if Skagit has a part in this, but I enjoyed it much more this year.  I noticed more of the techniques and musicality that I hadn’t noticed before.  Utterly delightful!

My list of things to accomplish on Christmas break is getting shorter.  There’s nothing like crossing things off a list!  One of the things on my list is to read.  So which book should I read?

Our Mutual Friend  by Charles Dickens
Wives and Daughters   by Elizabeth Gaskell
North and South   by Elizabeth Gaskell
or any other suggestions?

  1. Well it all depends on the amount of time you have!!! My first recommendation is “Our Mutual Friend”, but that may well take up the rest of your 2 1/2 weeks. 🙂 Otherwise I’ll recommend “North and South”.

    Hoping to see more posts coming soon! 😉
