Outside my window..
So I was inspired... a snow day at home. School was cancelled here and roads are not good. Found myself looking out my windows and wanted to share what I saw...
I'm still here..
Just got back from a super week at camp. D and I helped out with the NLOMA conference. NLOMA stands for National Lutheran Outdoor Ministries Association. It is the camp ministry of the LCMS. This is their time to meet together and finish filling their staff for the summer. Kind of a neat yet complicated process. They interview as a whole, and then meet together to share applicants and place applicants according to each camp's needs... and ultimately God's will. There was one person that came down during the JR (Joint Recruitment) session and when asked how it was going, she said she was a bit emotional right now, cause she was feeling God tell her to let people go to other camps that she thought she'd have on staff this summer. Just crazy. It's a full process that they only allow one full day for. The rest of the time was for them as staff to be built up in their faith and have time to share ministry ideas. Extremely awesome week to be apart of. I was in the kitchen all week spending time with 3 awesome ladies. Oh the things you learn in camp kitchens!
Life is full right now, but oh so good. The time away that D and I got to spend up there with each other and fun camp peoples was priceless. It was especially good for us and our relationship... a time away... together in a different setting. Different people/settings bring out different things in us... camp brings out some of the best.
SO back to life is full... this weekend I will be creating a webpage, a slideshow presentation, preparing for another presentation, cleaning the church, visiting my friend in the nursing home, organizing bills that have been neglected, and a few fun things like dinner with dear friends and a much needed hair cut. :) So until next weekend, or unless I feel extrememly inspired.
A New Space...
I just can't keep from starting new projects. This time it was my husbands fault. He gave me space on his church youth page... and I went crazy last night and made a webpage. :) Here's a snapshot:
It was quite fun for me. I got to use ideas that I've been wanting to try out. So from now on, my "word" link will go there. :)
Rainy day at home...
We are getting used to weather and how it affects us now. Since it was bad today we didn't go into town... we were "rained in". Ice all over the place and more rain coming down. So home we were today. I felt off all day. Plans changed, wasn't ready for it. So I meandered around the house, trying to get myself to focus on one project. I finally settled on this:
My creation corner... I am very pleased with this space. Not nearly big enough, but there are always ways to improve it. Namely start using all the stuff I've collected. :) It was good to get semi-organized. Things are all over. Places I used to put stuff have changed into a new space. I thought I was losing it today... it took me 20 minutes to back track and find my stapler. A weird day. :)
I don't want to make this sound like I'm unthankful. I'm still in shock that we have a house... that I can actually do things to it... I am thankful for this new place, new spaces... but I'm struggling to enjoy it. It's a bit overwhelming and distracting in it's own. I eager for it to feel like old hat... and a place where creations do come alive. And a side note, I think I'm still recovering from the lock-in this weekend. Stay up for 24hrs did something to me. My internal clock is messed up.
And I'm back...
Internet and the server are back up. Now just to spread the word. It would probably be a good idea to just by a domain name then I don't have to send out an email every time my address changes. I'll have to look into that.
