Fun in the Snow

The boys are happy - we finally have some snow for them to play in! It snowed overnight so they got out this morning. I am glad to see they are not too old to play in the snow and had fun making a snowman. We don't have a big garden so they did not have that much room - but it didn't stop them!

The view out the back - before the boys got let out!!

Thanks to RInda have found a new toy to play with - Paper, a drawing, sketching app for the IPad. You can draw and sketch with it very simply. You only get one tool with it, but you can buy others. This is my first attempt at sketching the view from my window. I don't think I am very good at sketching/painting but it is fun.

Have you tried Paper?

New Book

This book arrived today, One Zentangle a Day, and a new project for me to get into. I have done a little Zentangling before but not much. This book is a 6 week course with 42 daily exercises to try. Looking forward to getting into it.

This is really a follow on post from my last one. I thought I should blog about some Intentions for 2013 that I am going to Embrace. Not going for goals as there was a really interesting discussion on a recent Freedom in Christ course that I did about the only real goal for a Christian was to be like Christ and that other things are not goals - anyway that is what I took out of it. So I am going going for Intentions (and this way if I don't get round to them I don't need to beat myself up about it).

I intend to complete the course Write Now that I signed up for last year at Big Picture Classes - it is all printed out and ready to get started.

I intend to continue with my Gratitude Album that Bernice was running in November.

I intend to continue with my weight loss plan and exercise plan and get back to the gym. I have signed up to the Woman and Home online diet, where I can track my weight and track what I eat and it counts how many calories I have left for the day.

I intend to do more reading and to actually go the Book Club (at least once). The books I have started are


I shall let you know what I think of them.

I intend to make a dent in my wool stash by actually knitting and crocheting stuff.

I think that is enough Intentions to be getting on with as I want to be able to Embrace whatever opportunities come my way this year.

One Word 2013

After much thought, deliberation and prayer my word for 2013 is


The dictionary definition for embrace is:

- to take or receive gladly or eagerly
- accept willingly
- to avail oneself of
- to take in with the eye or the mind

This year I am aiming to Embrace all that is new in my life - new house, new city, new opportunities that will come my way. I will also Embrace all that God puts in my path, and Embrace the person He wants me to be.

Thanks to Melanie at for making my word button.

Have you chosen a word for the year?
