How about Saturday favorites?

14 Dec

I write this, sitting on the pew in the narthex, and it is EARLY Saturday morning.  3am early.

Why in the world am I awake at 3 in the morning and blogging?

Well, what else am I going to do when I’m hosting a lock-in at ROG and the kiddos are resistant to sleep?  We declared a quiet area and a few youth are sleeping … but the majority of them are talking loudly in the balcony.  And so here I sit, alongside Pastor Jon, as they chit-chat and hopefully grow sleepier by the moment.  Time will tell.

In the meantime, to combat my own sleepy eyes, how about some favorites?

I pretty much freaked when I saw this link.  It’s about creating a giant star for Christmas.  Using tobacco sticks, as she calls them.  Lathe to those of us who grew up hauling bundles of it and making play forts on them in the tobacco shed.  Luck would have it that I have a bundle of it in my garage as I write.  I saved it from my grandpa’s shed, just knowing I would find uses for it sooner or later.  Check.

I wish I had time to make a Christmas quilt.  All the people I follow on Instagram and Twitter who basically quilt for a living are releasing photos of their beautiful Christmas quilts.  *sigh*  Someday.

I know you won’t hardly believe me but I’ve never seen The Hobbit.  [I’m not sure Middle Earth is worth my time if Aragorn isn’t there.]  However, with all the talk of the latest Hobbit movie [especially with its connection to my dear Sherlock], I think I might have to catch myself up.  Here is a guide to eating like a Hobbit.

Chocolate toffee pecan cookies.  Those sound delicious at this point in the morning.  Bring them to me?

I think that’s it.  I think that’s all I have in me so early in the morn.  Enjoy your Saturday.  I’ll be sleeping.
