Christmas was fantastic--14+ inches of snow and all. We went to KC early to miss the storm, but came home a little too early. We drove into a snow drift about 1/2 mile from home and had to walk the rest of the way. But, a very kind neighbor pulled us out later and all was well. This is a picture of Jessie after she shoveled a one-lane path down our sidewalk.
Now we are beginning 2010, and, interestingly enough, today's date is a palindrome--the same frontwards and backwards. See--01-02-2010! I love little bits of trivia like that.
And, I love the new beginnings of the New Year. I am usually in the midst of reading through the Bible chronologically, but it typically takes me longer than a year. But, it happens that I'm starting over just as the new year is starting. If you want to follow my pace, check it out on my Twitter account--margarettraudt. Sometimes I post a verse from Psalms instead of my chronological reading, but it's all good.
And, this Monday I'm starting a once/week online editing course with Christian PEN. It will be fun to be a real student for a while. I'm anxious to see all the things I thought I knew but really didn't.
John and I went to see Invictus today. It's a great movie--very inspiring! Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon were both excellent in their roles. I'm hoping to read the book--Playing the Enemy.
In a day or two I'll post a review of Newt Gingrich's book Rediscovering God in America. So, check back.
Hope you've enjoyed this potpourri of trivia. Have a great day!
