LSN Day 11, 13 & 14

Playing catch up with Learn Something New - but I did notes throughout the month so I could make the pages now.
Day 11 was the first night of our Christianity Explored course at Church and our CY Youth course, we had a good turnout at each, for which we were thankful.

Day 13 was that I am very thankful for my family.

Day 14 was Communion at Church, always a busy day for us, so I wanted to take some time and remember what it is about.

Yes I do know I have missed out Day 12 - only because I need to print out a photo and I have run out of photo paper - so will need to go shopping tomorrow, then I can get on with the rest of the month.


I love surprises - don't you? On Thursday last week I got two lovely surprises on the same day! My sister sent me these lovely socks that she had knitted for me. Both she and my Mum have a pair, and my feet were feeling the cold - so she took pity on me and knitted me a pair. They fit great and keep my toes lovely and warm!

The second surprise was this lovely tag from a Secret Sister over at Faithscrappers UK forum. The verse on the back reads "May the Lord himself, who is our source of peace, give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with you all". 2 Thess 3: 16. It is lovely and gave me a much needed boost.

Words, words words...

Yeah!! I have finally finished writing my End of Course Assignment for the OU course I am doing - all 4,990 words of it. Posted it off this morning. The question was about how and in what ways authority has changed in contemporary religions, which was quite interesting. I now have to wait until December to get the results. Books are being tidied away tonight and the wine is chilling in the fridge! No more studying until my course starts in Jan/Feb next year.

What will I do with my time???? Answer - scrap. I can hopefully get caught up on all my unfinished projects.

I have also joined a gym this week. Curves has just opened up here and I went along and signed on the dotted line. It looks good and I have been twice this week (and don't my legs know it!).

LSN Day 9 & 10

I know I'm still a bit behind, but I have managed another two pages for Learn Something New.
Day 9 was that Good Friends are worth having - I had a lovely lunch out that day with a close friend.

Day 10 - Andrew was looking for CDs of different types of music to take into school, this made me think of how dull life would be without music. I choose a picture of Mamma Mia as I thought this was a great film when I saw it and like listening to the soundtrack (and singing along!!).

LSN Day 7 & 8

Day 7 for Learn Something New was a reminder that I'm Special because God loves me. This was the theme for Sunday School today so I thought it would be good to make a page about it.

Day 8 was a reminder to myself that God will guide us in the right direction. There seems to be so much going on in my life at the moment that clear guidance and direction is much looked for.

LSN Day 4, 5 6

My next three LOs for Learn Something New - I am now only 3 days behind.
Day 4 I went to the cinema to see WALL-E, which I thought was a really good film with lots of 'deep and meaningful' bits in it. WALL-E shows how one person, however small, can make a huge difference and that sometimes its OK to think differently from the crowd.

I have recently started knitting again after not having done any for years, so my first project is to finish the cardi I promised my hubbie many years ago. For Day 5 I put that I am thankful for the ability to knit and to create.

On Day 6 I visited my chiropodist, and its great how wonderful my feet feel again! I always say I will take more care of them but then life gets in the way again.

Learn Something New

I have decided to Learn Something New again this year with Shimelle. I did this class two years ago and really enjoyed it, but couldn't get into it last year. I have decided to do it again this year and to try and do a LO on something to be thankful for each day, to keep the album Positive as that is my word for the year.

Day 1 was to be thankful for the birds and butterflies that come to visit my garden.

Day 2 was to be thankful that the Bible Study and Prayer Group have started up again after the sumer break, it is good to meet together with other Christians.

Day 3 was to be thankful for DVDs of favourite TV shows and to be able to watch them with the kids. Andrew was off school on this day and we watched two episodes of Dr Who together.

August Pages

Following on from yesterdays post I managed to complete my August pages last night. This is the first scrapping I have actually done for ages, so hopefully my mojo is returning and I shall get some more done this month.

I have an assignment due in at the end of this week for my OU course and my End of Course Assignment (5,000 words) is due at the end of the month so I suppose I had better get a move on with them. Then I get a break from studying for a couple of months.

25 of August

Yes I know I am a little late posting these photos - but I did take them on the 25th of August. They are for the Scrap Your Day challenge that I am doing this year. This month I decided to take photos of things in my garden. The first photo is of our apple tree, which has a fair number of apples on it again this year.

This photo is one of the many butterflies that visit our garden.

Since we put out a bird feeder that has lots of hanging bits on it we have been inundated with sparrows and starlings. They are very greedy and can sometimes be rather aggressive with each other. They are getting quite tame now and will let us sit out and watch them and even hang the washing out without them flying away.

Now all I have to do is make the pages for August.
