Well, it’s up.

Happy Birthday, Mark!

This year I didn’t put the Advent candles up in the windows in the commons. I put that window film up there in the summer and I didn’t want to mess with figuring it all out again. That’s ok. Someone donated an eight-foot tree last year and it took several days of ‘help’ from the children, but it’s finally up. Not well, but it’s up.

It will be a bear to take down. Future me is already mad at me.

    The tree is lovely! Taking down the tree -- that’s a job for the college volunteers, right?

    The sign to Bethlehem -- can you enlarge it? I wanted to read your comment on it.

      It says ‘Bethlehem 6,577 miles (as the crow flies)’. I am grateful for the internet!

      Rachel, that is a good idea, except this thing would never fit in the elevator. It is monstrous. 🙂

    Why take the tree apart? You have an elevator and lots of storage. Take it down in one piece, throw a sheet over it, and next year… vwah lah! You have a beautiful tree with no set up! (BTW, i have no idea how to spell vwah lah)

Bleh. I think I am one of those people that thinks cilantro tastes like soap. Or maybe I am just a classix ranch lover. Don’t mess with the formula.

Catholic

So, I am writing this in haste and it’s really not that great of a story. Lloyd and I set up for communion, and when we first started, I didn’t like the squeeze bottles that we used for filling the individual cups. I looked at a catalog and bought the ‘pancake/donut-batter’ style plunger cup. It […]

Weekend Update

IMG_1453

It was a busy weekend. Normally those make me cranky, but this was alright. On Friday evening I baked some cookies for a cookie exchange. I knew there wouldn’t be time on Saturday, so that was weird not passing out at 7 on a Friday night. On Saturday Lloyd and I went to Nebraska Furniture […]
