Here is a Christmas picture. Yes, yes I know it's almost Valentine's Day. Life has been very busy. As you can see the puppy has grown. She is 7 months now.
Mozart is still composing and I am doing everything else. I'll try to write more often. I suppose "short and sweet" is better than showing the same blog post for 2 months!
Life has been very busy, and although I have had time in the evenings to write, I end up reading or finishing up the chores around the house. I just finished a very good book called "The Sisters of Sinai" the true story about two women who discovered an ancient copy of the gospel of Mark.
Author Janet Soskice did a great job researching..in fact I think it is over-researched. If you like ancient manuscripts and have a fascination with Egypt, floating down the Nile...or wonder what crossing the Sinai Penninsula by camel (in a dress) would be like, than this book is for you.
Parts of the book were a little slow due to the extra information and research on side topics. But all in all I loved it. Visiting monastaries, making friends with monks, and the dilemmas of traveling as a woman in the Middle East in the late 1800's and early 1900's took my mind off the day and I totally forgot about blogging.
These women were persistent in their endeavors and they were a great inspiration to me. I have the tendency to give up on projects. But not any more! Now I feel like I could do anything if I put my mind to it.
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
