This is my second post in this year’s Advent Calendar blog series at Solveig’s blog. I intended to write more, but alas, I’ve been sick for the past few days. Better this weekend than next, with the holiday and all.
Check my entry today then read the posts by others from around the world. This series is really quite lovely and a great way to connect with other bloggers. Plus! You have to click the link to see the cute photo I included with my post.
These little critters greeted me on a Christmas tree at a senior living facility my choir sang at. It was the one member’s mom’s holiday party, and we were the entertainment. When I joined the choir, I thought it would be fun, but when I found out they perform for seniors as part of their […]
Dale at A Dalectable Life is sharing bloggers each day of the Advent Calendar of her creation. Today, she added me and I couldn’t be more appreciative and grateful. What a wonderful little world this blogosphere is….
In the spirit of Christmas and the Advent Calendar that has been revamped and re-purposed in myriad ways, I have decided to do one of another sort. Instead of taking one chocolate per day (or wine or whatever goodie is in vogue) or adding one item into a box to donate for a good cause […]
The plan was to blog on Thanksgiving and other Thursdays since. I only managed a couple of Tuesdays and a Friday. I was going to write a Thursday Doors post today, but alas, the day is more than half over and no post yet. I know I say time flies, frequently, but I’m seriously at a loss for how I got to this day and time.
People! For the 4th year in a row, I’ve participated in Solveig’s Advent Calendar series! It’s fun to read posts all month long from people around the world! Check out my first post of the month today (link below) — with another later in the month from me, too — and consider participating. It’s a great way to connect with other bloggers and share some holiday cheer!
Chocolate Countdown By Tara Paray
As this Advent Calendar blog series gets underway (again! — yay!) and Advent for Christians starts tomorrow, I’m beginning my countdown today with a very special calendar. I’ve had Advent calendars made of paper with little date windows you open. I’ve also had the kind that hang on the wall, […]
As an INFJ, I spend a lot of time gathering information and intel (consciously and sub so), and also analyzing/questioning/pondering, etc. I do a lot of this silently so most people wouldn’t notice my brain is constantly playing 20 questions / 1,000,000 answers. Sometimes, though, my brain gives me a break and I only think, like, half as much as usual and contemplate silly things that make me laugh. Lucky you, today is that day.
Twas the Tuesday before American Thanksgiving, when we celebrate people in silly hats with buckles pre-snookering cool cats in feather headdresses with crappy food like turkey, but hey, beggers can’t be choosers, eh? I am at work. I will forever be at work. Though told that Friday is “family time,” ergo boss will not be in the office, I will be here, despite the fact that I came from and in fact do still have a family. Apparently, family time = only for the 1%. Continue reading “Una nota de martes”→
Starbucks holiday cups have arrived! And I’m sure there are people complaining that they’re not Christmas-y enough.
I’ve meditated about this, and I thought I heard a thought, from whence I know not:
And Jesus said, “Let My people have their festive cups, and may they runeth over. And, if they make one in My image, to celebrate My birthday, let the image be a hologram in which My beard appears / disappears with the heat of the blessed coffee.”
I write the words. I’m all about the words. I am the words. Usually, I share a lot of words here. There’s something, however, I need and want to write that will make that cease temporarily. My blog will be taking a creation vacation.
