Moments in Time 11/11

The weeks have been going by in a blur.  I can't believe it's already moving on into the middle of November.  The days tick by one by one and before I know it, it's the middle of the week and I haven't posted.  It's not that nothing is going on and I have nothing to say.  It's more like by the time I have a moment to post, I'm so tired I don't even want to sit down at the computer.  But life is like that.  There are seasons just like with the weather.  And I'm in a season of busy.  So please bear with me if my posting is sporadic and random.  It's just the way it has to be right now.

And speaking of seasons:

Did I ever mention fall is my favorite?

There was time to get autographs and pose for a pic with the lead singer of Starfield

I've got tons of review books that I need to finish.  Reviews to come.  And that is not even my Fall Into Reading list!

Been busy organizing and making announcements at church for these special boxes.  The kids and I have yet to get to the store to fill them.  On my to do list this weekend.

My responsibilities with being the door prize co-ordinator for our Ladies Christmas Tea is taking up mega time.  Lots of letters and follow up phone calls and picking up of the gifts.  Lots of work but fun too.

And I bought my first Christmas present on the weekend.  It's a Christmas ornament from Pier I.  A "Li Bien" ornament to be specific.  It's mouth blown glass.  They hand paint each ornament on the INSIDE!  They put a tiny brush inside a tiny hole and paint the image in reverse.  Amazing.  As a result no two are exactly alike.  One of my fave gifts to give and this one was only $9.99 meeting my lady's study group max of ten dollars.  And it comes in that beautiful lined velvet box which can be used again.  Score.

So the season begins.

Whew.  I think I need a cup of lemon meringue tea!

Ahhh...I feel your busyness...
So good to pause and still reflect on God's goodness to us in the little finding just the right present :0)

Well done, Susanne! In the midst of the busy fall and your coordinating lots of stuff, you managed Christmas shopping. I'm impressed. The ornament is really very pretty.

Susanne, I feel the same way. I keep thinking I'm going to be more consistent about posting on my blog, and before I know it the week has gone by. I didn't mean to ignore your question about stocking stuffers -- I was actually going to do a post on it, but haven't gotten to it!

I LOVE the first photo in this post. The colors are so beautiful and then suddenly the photo in the center just pops out. You should enter it in a contest.
