Please pardon the unexcused absence. I've been out of sorts and sort of out the past few days following a grotesque accident with this. I'll spare you the details, seeing as how you've probably eaten recently or plan to soon. Let's just say that I'm missing some finger on my left hand and I'll never cut up carrots again. Ever.
Got out yesterday, though. A new friend and I loaded up and drove a few hours to Amarillo. Amarillo by morning, baby. I'd never been. It was beautiful. By the time I got around to taking pictures it was late afternoon so the ice had melted from the cactus, leaving the landscape looking burned and bored. But it wasn't. It was cold and crunchy.
My Monday Moments haven't even been a consideration for us the past two weeks, have they? I'm sorry. I blame that partly on my schedule and partly on the book of devotionals I'm compiling, to be entitled: Pulling Heaven Down. (No release date set as of yet, but if you'd be interested in a copy, I'm sure the publisher would be interested to see your comment here.) Not that my excuses will fly with y'all, I know, but I thought I'd offer up a few anyway. But I know. I miss meeting here and devoting on Mondays, too.
So how are you? Hope you're well. I'm looking forward to talking Christmas this week and showing you my knitted Peppermint Tote (made from strips of Target bags!) and dishing on Christmas card lists. Here's to tomorrow!
And here's to you. Thanks, as always, for hanging in with me on the messy side of my thrilling life....
