Yesterday's mail brought yet another birthday gift!
My friend Gerrie, who used to be simply a 'virtual friend' but then became reality when we shared digs while enjoying a class in Coupeville, WA and also the SDA conference two years ago, sent me a copy of Twelve by Twelve! She is one of the gang of Twelve and by reading her blog (and the Twelve blog, plus those of others in the group), I have been very interested in this publication. I had intended to purchase my own copy, but life had simply gotten in the way, so I was very pleased to receive this lovely copy. If you don't already have your own, I strongly suggest that you get one today. It is a lovely book: full of eye candy, personal stories, and lots of instruction. I have barely begun to read it, but I can tell you that I just love it! I met Karen Rips, another of the Twelve, two years ago at a workshop, and so I am also very interested in reading her excerpts. And then there's Terry Grant, Kristin La Flamme and Brenda Gael Smith: all of whom's blogs I often read, and with whom I've corresponded over the years. Now I'm interested in finding out more about the rest of the group. It's a terrific read, and I know you will love it too! Thank you so much Gerrie!!!!
A cold front blew through the southeast Thursday evening, leaving much of Atlanta powerless and in quite a mess, but thankfully there were no tornadoes here! We awoke this morning blanketed in fog:
My photo doesn't really do it justice, as it was actually a lot thicker than it looks here.
It was a cool 66 degrees, and our morning walk was delightful! The sun is now poking through, and it promises to be a lovely holiday weekend, with loads of festivities.
Charlie turned six months old yesterday!
I really can't believe it! Sometimes it seems as if he's always been here, but then at other times, I can't believe how the time is flying. I'm looking forward to having lunch with him and his parents tomorrow!
