Sunday Salon... Dec. 11

On the web: This amazing video Cello Star Wars.

I'm thankful for: the wonderful ordination service for a friend who is just starting out in ministry.
I'm listening to: Nothing.  I actually have no audiobook going right now, a rarity.

I'm reading: After a four week hiatus from this book I am back to reading: Five Flavors of Dumb by Anthony John.

Book finished this week: Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery.  I have finally read this wonderful children's classic.

Lists I am making: Family news I want to include in the Christmas letter and lists of last minute items for stocking-stuffers, etc.

Scripture lesson in church: Luke 2:4--- "And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:) ."

I'm praying for: The homeless in our society who have to live outside in such terrible weather and for those who are jobless during this Recession..

Around the house: Christmas decorating is done except decorating a wreath for the door. The packages are ready to take to the post office for mailing. I'm ahead of schedule for me.

From the kitchen: I cooked no creative or delicious dishes this week but I did have some yummy Chicken Romano at a restaurant tonight.

A favorite quote this week: "Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we know all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?"
- Lucy Maud Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables


  1. I finally read Anne of Green Gables just a few years ago and really enjoyed it. Then I watched the movie, which I thought was also well done. Get thee to the post office before everyone else is or you'll go crazy waiting in line to mail your packages!

    Have a great week (is it the last before vacation?)

  2. My Christmas decorating is done too and now I just have to mail a package and it should all be good. It's a good feeling isn't it?

  3. Anne of Green Gables was one of my favorite series when I was younger and I still love it. The Canadian movies are very good!!

  4. I love your Sunday Salon posts. They always brighten my day.


I look forward to your comments and interactions! Join in the conversation.
