My gift to you
I had oh so hoped to write before now. My computer is not fixed, it is going to the computer hospital on Thursday. The man who thought he could fix it... couldn't. It is still worth a try to see if it can be fixed so everything stored on it can be retrieved.
I started the looooong week yesterday. Christopher dropped me off around 7:20 at the Panera somewhat near the campus. I read for awhile, continued my Bible reading, and wrote ideas I wanted to post yesterday before walking to campus and the bookstore to start work at 11:00. I'm doing something new, preparing returned books to be put back on the shelves. It's always fun to learn something new and the group I'm working with is (for the most part) the same women who work back up and part-time. Only one "new" face was there and he wasn't new to me, David is my son's best friend (one of Sheila's twins).
I did "work" the main cash register for a couple of hours, which makes the time go very fast. Still... by the time Christopher arrived to pick me up, I was so tired I went to bed around 9:00! However, I made it through just fine. Today I dropped him off early, stopped at the grocery store to purchase some needed groceries, brought them home, typing here, and I must be on the way within TEN MINUTES. Yikes... where did the morning go already?
Since I'll be away from the computer most of the week, I figured now would be a good time to do the give away I was going to do last month. All you have to do is leave a comment, of course. You don't have to use your real name. :)
I'm giving a copy of one of my favorite books, A Return to Sunday Dinner as well as the Miss Read Christmas book I purchased at a library sale a few months ago. I may just include one or two other "little" goodies. Yes, I did give the same cookbook last year but I had TWO copies in my gift box. So I had one to give away this year.
Thank you so much for your comments and encouragement. If you sent an e-mail, I haven't had a chance to answer and it will probably be next week before I can get back to everyone but I have been so blessed. Our weather continues to make driving dicey (snow and ice) so I know your prayers have kept me going and brought us to and from work safely.
Don't forget to leave a comment!
