God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

"We are driven to create at this deep wordless level of the soul because we are all fashioned in the image of a God who is an Artist." - Michael Card, Scribbling in the Sand.

I wish I would have had today off! As I was driving past the lake this morning the mist was rising off of it and coating the trees with this fine layer of frozen fog! The trees were just amazingly beautiful with the sun shining through them I would have even braved the 7 degrees for those pictures.

It’s been a really long week at work. We are always a little slow this time of year; but this year seems worst then most. I will actually be glad to have the students back and the hustle and bustle.

Oh I have good news and bad news…Disney seems to be falling through is the bad news…since Michelle and Jim need to save money we will have to down grade which means I would have to have a room by myself which means my costs go way up! The good news is that if I don’t go to Disney there is a good chance I can go to CKU in Provo. If I get to go to Provo I would like to stay an extra couple of days and do some site seeing.

I did a mini tin earlier this week that I think turned out really nice. I don’t know what I’m going to do with it. I might give it to Erin for Christmas she could use it for one of her friends either as a gift or to put pictures of the two of them in. She seems to like my stuff. I’ve also been working on her and Jerod’s wedding album. I still have so much to do on it. I think I may pack it up and take it in to the crop tomorrow night.

If it stays this cold tomorrow I may not go to the crop I’m seriously considering calling off. It’s just to cold to be out. My car never did thaw out last night even in the garage it had frozen doors this morning.

Well any way here is some pictures of the tin.

LOL! You are so very bad! I wonder if the stars will come out to look again!

Michelle said...

You never know, Disney may have some fantastic discounts and we can all still go. OR we might win the powerball lottery and then it is Grand Floridian for all of us!!!

Honestly, if I was single and not a mother, I would probably jump on the chance to go to CKU but our fun money is shared and Jim and Madelyn vote for Disney!

Jane said...

If disney comes with some awesome deals I'll be going to disney with you guys ;)

Your tin turned out FANTASTIC! I would have to say I would pick CKU! But as scrappers that is what we like to do! Utah is beautiful! We go to Salt Lake for DD's scoli stuff....you'll love it there, Mountains are majestic. To bad I won't be there! We are just one state away! Darn!
