NaNoWriMo

Yes! A productive day! Whew. I worked harder than usual, to be honest. 

Ok. Here’s my question: am I the only one who, every year, thinks, “If I just had one more month to catch up before November, I’d do NaNoWriMo!” Ha ha haaaa

Anyway, start thinking about it if you’re more on top of things than I am. 🙂

Back in the Saddle

It sure feels good to be back in the saddle, working to get some projects finished! It cuts into blog-time, but I’m pretty sure we’re all ok with that.

One project I’m working on is a rather extensive pastoral planner/calendar for my husband. I don’t know whether that will become available for general clerical consumption, but I’m trying to keep that option open. 🙂

Formatting is eating up a lot of my time. Thankfully I’m at least learning a lot about it in the mean time. (And I do mean mean time!)

I’m also trying to stir various pots, seeing which ones are ready for the next step. Also pondering various bits & pieces until my brain itself seems ready to boil over. lol

Wishing you well! I’ve heard of various projects going on, including a workshop of sorts for kids on the topic of the Trinity! LOVE IT! Alas, I just don’t have time to write a longer post. But just maybe I’ll get to writing up my reflections on the expression “spread too thin,” two reviews I’ve been meaning to write for ages, and a few announcements I’ll share if I can find/remember them gradually over this next week.

Yep. That’s my life right now. 🙂 Wishing you God’s blessings on yours!

My husband has had an idea

I interrupt my supposed break because my husband has had an idea. And I think he’s serious, although I initially took it as a joke. He even specifically asked me to blog it. Are you ready? No. You’re not ready. Seamstresses, this one is for you.

And, you guessed it, a Lutheran author has recently released a book on the matter. 🙂  Free Trade Rocks! 10 Points on International Trade Everyone Should Know is by Ray Keating, whom you likely know from his Stephen Grant series of novels.

Apologetic Opportunism

You may have noticed by now that I get a number of release tips from Bryan Wolfmueller’s Wednesday What-Not emails. I’ll admit it. One book he mentioned at some point in the not-do-distant past is Apologetic Opportunism by Lutheran author, Rev. Brian Flamme.

Norman Nagel

Norman Nagel has been a tremendous blessing to the church, particularly the Lutheran church in the United States. No matter what I would say, or how I could say it, it would be an understatement. He is amongst the greatest Lutheran theologians of this time, and the Lord has called him home at the age of 94.
