Whew! What a week! I got antibiotics from the doctor last Wednesday, but seemed sicker for a couple of days. Strength began to return towards the end of the week. Just that crazy cough to conquer.

Giving My Printer/copier a Workout

Getting out my Christmas mail, and printing out some books and binding them for giving as gifts is about all I’m getting accomplished these days. Being sick is a viable excuse, but not a fun one. I’ll be making up some IOU certificates yet. One thing is that my printer/copier is getting a work out. […]

Plodding Away at Christmas Mail

My bulk order of 15 copies of my own novel arrived on Monday. I’m rather excited about selling to folks locally here whom I hesitated to urge to buy because I knew the cost. Only, I’m not very good at sales this week:)

Carol Festival Conversations & Singing

Every year, the first or second Sunday of December, there is a Carol Festival in our local school gym, put on by four participating churches. I always look forward to this. Some years each church has a choir practiced up, or sometimes they have smaller singing groups, even the school prepares a children’s choir. This year they tried the mass choir idea again.
