Thankful Tuesday: or "I thought squirrels ate nuts!"
On the blog Mama: Monk by Micha Boyett, every Tuesday is
- that our phone is working again. We had no phone and spotty internet for 3 or 4 days last week. It turned out the main cause was a wire that had been chewed by a squirrel (or as a t-shirt I saw once put it, "one of Nature's speed bumps").
- that Allison is happily starting a new semester of high-school courses this week: French, Science, Music, and Healthy Active Living (what we used to call Phys.Ed. or Gym back in the day.)
- that our family's had a very healthy winter so far.
- for my groups:
*writer's group (we've been meeting for nearly 5 years, during which I've written a dozen short stories, 5 or 10 poems, and a 'tween' novel draft that's still in [sloooooow] progress)
*book club (just had our 17th-anniversary meeting - we discussed T.S. Eliot's "The Four Quartets")
*church women's group (I've attended now for 7+ years - this winter we're doing Beth Moore's Believing God. A bit outside my zone but it's always good to try new things, right?)
*New Wineskins (little home worship group that's been meeting monthly for 5+ years) .
It's great to talk about ideas, words, and God with other people.
