My memories from 2011
~A good book I read~
by Wanda Brunstetter
I actually finished this book the week before Christmas.
It was book number 2 in
The Kentucky Brothers series.
It was SOOOOO good.
I have to wait till September 2012
for book number 3.
And yes, there was a cliff-hanger!
~A great film/movie I watched~
This was a hard one to answer, but I thought the updated
Planet of the Apes
was pretty good...
I remember watching the movies when they came out
on television with my sister in the late 70s and being incredibly
afraid when Charlton Heston found the
Statue of Liberty destroyed.
~A new place I visited~
where Olivia attends college...
~An inspiring verse or quote I read~
"I have been driven many times to my knees by the overwhelming
conviction that I had nowhere to go.
My own wisdom, and that of all about me, seemed insufficient for the day."
I have this quote framed hanging in our entryway.
It's been a favorite of mine for years.
~A discovery I made~
I seriously love having a place to "pin" all those recipes I find!
~A new skill I acquired~
Re-learning how to make pie crust...
~A lesson I learned~
Just to keep my mouth shut and remember that not everyone
wants my opinion or wants to live in an organized house.
~A moment I will always remember~
My Colonel walking down the airport hallway in January 2011
after being in Afghanistan for over a year.
The picture is a little blurry but seeing all the people stop him
to shake his hand was so wonderful...
The four of us...
Care to join and do YOUR own memory list?
Leave me a comment and let me know if you do and
I'll be sure to come visit.
Well, I'll probably come visit anyway!
On the menu at our house tonight...
I'm NOT cooking!
Going to my mom's for one final holiday celebration.
Enjoy your day!
