Well, it finally happened. I fell on my basement stairs Tuesday morning. It could have been worse. I tripped on the second or third stair going up. And I was holding on to the rail, so I just strained the muscles on my right side and have stair marks up my left side from where I hit the stairs. They bruised pretty fast! :) The one on my hip is really ugly! But I think it’s already getting better! All the better for the 3 hr car ride tomorrow!

and it's snowing again! Twice in two weeks! It started this morning.
So you may or may not know that I prefer to finish my Christmas shopping before Thanksgiving. But this year I'm still not done! The Plaza was packed! The Discovery Channel Store was shoulder to shoulder!
And I've started working on an anniversary present for Ben. It will be five years in January! Amazing...

I feel like I should compose an amazing essay on all my blessings. But since I spent my time with my mom, brother, and grandparents, I'll just share the end of "A Thanksgiving Poem" by Paul Laurence Dunbar:
Thou hast, with ever watchful eye,
Looked down on us with holy care,
And from Thy storehouse in the sky
Hast scattered plenty everywhere.
Then lift we up our songs of praise
To Thee, O Father, good and kind;
To Thee we consecrate our days;
Be Thine the temple of each mind.
With incense sweet our thanks ascend;
Before Thy works our powers pall;
Though we should strive years without end,
We could not thank Thee for them all.

This is Kristine, Seth, and Ben. Such a cool picture, eh? The aquarium was the best part of the zoo to me.
It's nice husbands who will pose as a flower and a bee for their wives! This is another part of the zoo

She showed up at Megan's school. So it was unexpected. But I'd been thinking for a little bit that we should get a cat. Cause we don't have time for a dog right now. And cats are easier to care for than dogs.
She's very playful. The vet says she's healthy. We'll see what happens!

Here is the view from my front door. I'm standing in my living room looking to the dining room. The doorway leads to the kitchen.

This little girl hardly knew what to do about it. Apparently, the bird's claws hurt her head. She was a good sport, though!
We got to the sheep section while they were feeding them, so we got to hand feed them. They were pushy, but so soft!

We also went the the Kauffman Memorial gardens. This is a Kiss Me Kate L. A. Lily. I've decided I love lilies!

Well, I have an interview on Friday afternoon for a new job. It's at a Christian counseling office on the Plaza. It would only be part-time, though, so I'd have to get another part-time job for a while. I would be doing insurance and a little billing (how little is what I wonder!). At first glance seems to be perfect for me, but the timing is a little off. Could you help us pray about it?

"Provided that nothing like useful knowledge could be gained from them, provided they were all story and no reflection, she had never any objection to books at all."
"Miss Morland, no one can think more highly of the understanding of women than I do. In my opinion, nature has given them so much, that they never find it necessary to use more than half."
"The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good book, must be intolerably stupid."
She's so witty. She was not afraid to poke fun at her society. I just love it!
Okay, enough talking about books. On to real life...
