I plan to try and find time to post pictures and update my blog with stuff from the last couple weeks, but right now I just wanted to let y'all know that on Monday, NaNoWriMo starts and so my time is going to be devoted to writing elsewhere from then until the end-ish of November. So I'm not sure when I'll get around to updating this blog, but it'll probably be after November; then I'll re-date my posts and update it as thought I've never been gone...Thus far we've had a couple birthday parties, are going to have one for M-L soon, and I just got back from a friend's wedding. So, at some point in time--after November--I'll get on and get all that on here. Until then, know that I haven't disappeared, I'm just spending all my free time writing 50,000 words in 30 days! Oi! This year I'm even competing against someone I know: my Aunt Judy! Aught to be fun!

Well, our conference, though adjusted to be a simpler one-day event, turned out be bigger then we planned! In fact someone said they thought we had somewhere around 50+ people, which I believe is about the second largest crowd we've ever had for our women's conference! The meetings went off without a hitch--that I'm aware of--and we all had a great time. Just thought y'all would want to know! Also, for anyone interested, we're having our full three-day event in May (date to-be-determined) along the same theme: Healing Garden. Feel free to join us, or follow us on Facebook events...

Nothing to eventful has been going on since my last post. Mostly I've been busy or tired. But not a lot I can share. I did wrap and finally find a big enough box to send my sister's birthday presents to her, so hopefully she'll get them sometime Monday (since that is her day; Happy Birthday, Kiddo!) I'll try and remember to add the pictures of that sometime, and reveal the answers to her game to y'all once she figures it out; however, we do have our Women's Conference coming up this next Saturday, so we'll be busy, so y'all can keep us/that in your prayers! And don't fret if you don't hear much from me till after this weekend!
Christ's blessings to y'all!

So at about 6pm I got a call from Cole (another friend from OH) to say he was in the area, hanging out at a local pastor's/friends-of-Tim's house near here, and they'd welcome my joining them. It was supposed to be a kinda laid back--as in no gifts, just hanging out-- pre-wedding celebration (bridal shower-ish) for Emily & Tim. I was looking for an excuse to go on a walk, since it had been an unusually summer-like day, and Marie-Louise had decided she needed to hit the library for a book report. So I told Cole, sure, and walked with Marie-Louise part way to the library and then detoured off heading down another road. There were quite a few people there, and Emily & Tim finally showed up. We had a good dinner (if I'd been called sooner, I might have had more room for the food, but I'd just eaten). Then headed down to Bradford for a late-night bowling--as in till after midnight! I haven't been bowling in a long time, so I enjoyed that! My record still holds, too, where I'm always just so the biggest looser, it's just the actually points I got were different (I used to lose with points averaging in the 90s, but this time I was losing with points in the 30-40s; apparently there were also others out there just as bad as me, just not exactly as bad, since I've never lost by more then 20 points! LOL!). The lighting was funky, though, so I've only got one picture from the act of bowling that shows up semi-good. All other pictures were not pertaining to bowling. Afterward, they went back to the house to play games, but I was feeling tired so they dropped me off on the way home; I got in sometime after 1am, I think, and am now trying to blog it!
Oh, and as it turned out, throughout the whole evening, everyone kept wishing me a happy birthday! They even told me it was kind of a combination shower for Tim & Em and a birthday party for me; so it was another nice surprise birthday celebration for me, too!
Anyway, now I'm off to bed before I drive myself crazy! Or, more likely, fall asleep in mid-type!
Good night & God bless y'all!

So between yesterday and today, I've unwrapped most of my presents (I believe). So, for everyone who's been dying of curiosity--along with me--on what is hidden in all those packages sitting in the living room, here are a few pictures:
The best Bollywood-English movie ever!
Perhaps the best movie ever?!

So last night before church, Deb asked me if I wanted to get up this morning and join her for a little time at Tim Horton's after she dropped off the girls at school. It sounded good, and I knew she was planning to leave about noon with her friends to go to a conference she's doing in OH, so I said sure. I'd get up for a cute date-breakfast like that.

Yes, more packages. The taunting will never end!
Monday a gift from Becky came, and with it came the realization that maybe I could open the earlier present from Alissa, since it had been Becky that e-mailed that I should wait. But why open it now? I'm so close, I might as well wait on both gifts!
