I can't believe it's been almost 2 weeks since I have blogged. To be fair, I did work on a post, but saved it because I didn't finish it. That ought to count for something.
Ellen had a wonderful Christmas...thank yous are certainly in order for many. She loved her gifts from afar. This is a pic of her in her Christmas dress, sent to her by her California Grandma.
Here's one thing to be thankful for, sure enough; she did not get ONE gift that required batteries. Isn't that funny?! I am glad of it.
Weather has been below freezing for the past few days. Actually today I think it DID get up into the mid 30s, but is supposed to plummet again. Is supposed to snow again tomorrow night, but not much accumulation. We had a bit of snow on Christmas Eve and day, but again, not much stuck around.
The Big Christmas program is over at church. This means that I am back to teaching my teens on Wednesday nights. Frankly I am glad of it. I looked forward to sitting in on the adult Wed night class for a bit, but they are so boring I could have cried. Well, live and learn. I am even looking forward to laughing at the teens' cutups and yakkiness. (Is "yakkiness" a word? If not I am going to invent it, I rather like it.)
At any rate, for this coming year at hubby's suggestion for something to talk over with the teens I am going to tackle the evolution issue. In searching the world wide web I am finding a plethora of information. It is all mind boggling to me. I am trying to muddle my way through parts of Darwin's "Origin of Species" and I am discovering what I learned long ago in highschool...science is WAY over my head. My eyes are crossing in trying to understand what the dude was saying.
If anyone has any info they could share with regards to this subject; "The Evolution Myth," I am open to any input you may have. Thanks.
