Joe's birthday was in July but during the week rent was due so we never got a chance to do anything special for him. We decided instead, to get away for the Labor Day weekend since he'd have four days off with the holiday and I'd have three. I went ahead and took one vacation day for that Friday and we had a joint birthday weekend since mine was 3 September.

One of the things Joe had been wanting to do was visit Shepherd's Chapel in Gravette AR. It's pastored by a minister he respects greatly and has learned much from. So we found out what time to be there for the daily live bible study and after breakfast, headed on the 2.5 hour drive there.

We arrived with time to spare and were able to get to know some of the daily attendees as well as spend some time talking with the pastor, Rev. Arnold Murray as well as visit the bookshop and find these:
Day one of our weekend )

After dinner, it was back to the hotel and just relax with Flashdance and Grease 1 and 2 on tv and some reading for Joe and crochet for me!

Well I've been meaning to post all this and planned last Friday to update but my internet went down and couldn't be fixed till Monday night.  But finally, here it is.

Firstly, I had promised some photos of awesome squeemail received and here they are.

From [livejournal.com profile] jennbrad52 , the most wonderfully warm and comfy pair of crocheted Maryjane slippers which I wear all the time at home.

The same day, I also received a package from [livejournal.com profile] scowling_hermit that contained the gorgeous painting she did of a water dragon (my own Nessie picture :) ) and the awesome Halloween banner.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] hardhatcat and I did a personal Twilight Trade and her package arrived full of fabulous goodies   A paperpieced Twilight Bag, Twi stationary, Twi Journal all made by her.  Bookmarks, stickers and some LaPush beach fabric.  An Australia pencil set as well as Liquorice Bullets (mmmmmmm  and think chocolate Good & Plenty!), Allsorts (which can be gotten in the US just not where I live) and Tim Tams and yes, I've done my first Tim Tam Slam.  Oh and [livejournal.com profile] ofenjen ?  The new Target in Ft. Smith does not have TimTams :(   She also included a book of dog sweater patterns with a cute set of knitting needles (little dogs on top)

Thank you all for the wonderful squeeness!!!

I've been getting some crochet done...  107 of 200 mini cauldrons done for the OKC Yule Ball... here's 50 of them

A Molly Sweater that Accio_lily on Leaky Cauldron has been waiting for for months!

Several 12" blocks in a CAL I'm in on Ravelry that will become an afghan for my bedroom and a Team Edward Tote that is the prize for the newest [livejournal.com profile] twilight_crafts  challenge

And my squeemail this wee was my copy of The Tales of Beedle the Bard that I won on friday (just before the internet died) at Hogshead.org!.  However, I have yet to read it as dear hubby grabbed it last night and hasn't finished yet.

Tonight we're going out.  The place we went to on Halloween has the same group coming back for "Celtic Christmas Night' and we're going to it for a while.  Weekend is mostly just relaxing at home and crafting. 

Also spent time updateing my pages on Ravelry, Cut Out and Keep and Deviant Art as well as MyCraftivity.com  I was rather excited when my internet came back on to see that one of my projecs on Cut Out and Keep is in the top 20!  Which is my pizza recipe that I've made since my kids were in school and they love.

Currently been catching up on getting some Molly Sleeves made for other Mollys that are being waited on and the mini cauldrons as well as the other pieces for Mollys.   Also, mailed out my cards for [livejournal.com profile] hardhatcat 's recipe swap this morning at the post office.

Still have to up date on the Metallica concert that was just fantastic!  But now its time to get ready to go out.

She opened the door right away.

She didn't ask who it was; she didn't look through the spyhole; she didn't put on the chain.

In Moscow!

What Be Your Nerd Type?
Your Result: Literature Nerd

Does sitting by a nice cozy fire, with a cup of hot tea/chocolate, and a book you can read for hours even when your eyes grow red and dry and you look sort of scary sitting there with your insomniac appearance? Then you fit this category perfectly! You love the power of the written word and it's eloquence; and you may like to read/write poetry or novels. You contribute to the smart people of today's society, however you can probably be overly-critical of works.

It's okay. I understand.

The Book of Wizards:  A Magical History by Tim Dedopoulos

Dishonourable Mentions:
Regretable as it is, there is no shortage of evil wizards whose prominence and malice is such tat they too deserve recognition for their dark ways.  Sarauman the White in J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series, is the thead of teh Council of the Wise, the leaders of the free races in Middle Earth.  A spiritual being who has taken on a physical form in order to lead the fight against the evil Lord of Darkness, Sauron.
Sauron ought to have been beyond reproach.....
