Taking photos...

Hello friends, it is a quiet and snowy morning here. Everyone will get up and be busy in a few minutes but for now I’m taking in the quiet that the snow brings. I forget every year what few inches can do— making the world hush. I am tempted to get outside with my camera, but my toasty-toes are preventing me from venturing out into the cold.

I am finally feeling better (finally!). On Saturday, my girlfriends got together for some Christmas shopping. What fun! I was able to ride with my beloved friend, Katie (of the pumpkin crisp fame). Of all the Christmas shopping, lunching, the laughter, conversation— I only have two pictures— and not of these beautiful girls. 100 years from now, there will be no proof of our friendship, other than cookie-swap recipes and baby-having-lore. We even talked about this at lunch. Our best picture is at her wedding with about half our group missing— and three of us are pregnant. Even though I’ve made a promise to myself to be IN pictures, I’m doing a bad job of encouraging others (and myself!). So here's a picture of (just a few of) us from dinner with our husband's a few months ago.

In other news: I will actually be home by myself for few days between Christmas and New Year, so I’m deciding what projects I want to accomplish... I know I want to get the toys cleaned out. The playroom takes on a life of it’s own, and the toys/games/dress up multiplies while I sleep. How can this be? 

And I want to get a few rooms painted. But I also want to read, take walks, watch movies, sew, knit, drink tea... I’m not sure if I can get it all done. Ahh. We’ll see (: 

I am in dire need of new book/ movie suggestions. Got any good ones??

As for a book suggestion, I actually have a trilogy! The Mark of the Lion series by Francine Rivers is fascinating. These three books consist of "A Voice in the Wind", "An Echo in the Darkness", and "As Sure as the Dawn" hope you get a change to read during your free time!

So glad that you are feeling better :). A few days alone between Christmas and New Years sounds heavenly. Perhaps there will be snow on the ground then as well, and you can enjoy one of the amazing silent winter hikes that only a snow covered ground can bring.

I'm so glad you're feeling better! It's no fun to be sick for so long!! As to books, have you read _The Poisonwood Bible_ by Barbara Kingsolver? Intense but really good. On the lighter side, _The Princess Bride_ is one of my favorites! Right now I'm reading through the Chronicles of Narnia with the kids and remembered how much I love those books too. I love books! If you find any really good ones, pass them on. :)
