The tree is up. Purple lights make it look dazzling. No ornaments, yet. My son wants a small holiday party with his friends. I told him sure. Just have to pick the date.
I’m so ready for this year to end. 2016 has been a rough year. I am so looking forward to a new year.
Church tonight. Looking forward to that as well. After not being able to go to church at all over the last year and a half, it is so good to be back to going each week. I really hated to miss; but I was needed at home and I am glad I was able to do what I did.
Still plugging along on the book. It’s coming along nicely. God is blessing me in this arena as well as with benefits for my boy.
Took another painting class last night. Turned out pretty good. I’ve made a few art journaling pages today. I had a jewelry class Wednesday evening. From that, I was able to make several pieces while awaiting for my son during his audition for All County. I made a bracelet in pink for my friend, Michelle’s birthday, which was yesterday.
My sister, Vickie was going to my mother’s for Christmas; but has since changed them, so now my sister, Michelle will be there. Neither my son, nor I want to go there for the holiday. We were invited for turkey day; but we didn’t want to be there on that day, either.
My son wants us to go to Russell Stover’s store while he’s on vacation. We’ll have to see how the money is; but I’m sure we’ll be able to do it. He likes that place for some strange reason. Ha, ha.
My son got himself two new CD’s yesterday and we listened to them in the car. Avenged Sevenfold’s new song, “Angel” is really great. I like it a lot. My son once dedicated one of their songs to me on FB and I have to tell you, it was beautiful.
I love all types of music. My tastes run from Classical to Jazz to Heavy Metal, Rock n Roll, Pop, R&B, etc. I can’t imagine there is music that I haven’t liked. I got hooked on Country while in the USMC (how could I not with three roommates from the South — 2 Texas & one Louisiana. LOL!). Music has always been my go to when I’m in need of some soul healing.
My mind is scattered today. But just a little bit. I can’t seem to concentrate on one thing or another. It’s distracting me. I hope I can stay focused on tonight’s sermon. I need it.
Well, I’m off to where that may lead. Hopefully not too wild and crazy. 😀
