what i did over christmas break

  • attended family gatherings, of course: in Kansas and Nebraska. (Click on the states to see my facebook albums.)
  • baked lots of bread, including rolls that take 70 minutes start-to-finish.
  • decided to read the entire Bible in 2009. This is something I've never even attempted before--my new ESV Study Bible (thanks, Mom & Dad!) came with a one-year plan, and I'm excited to do this!
  • found lots of great after Christmas specials at Hobby Lobby, Kohl's, and Bath and Body Works.
  • bought lots of butter. Seriously. I had no idea how much until I was cleaning out my freezer and found seven pounds of frozen butter quarters. I had one pound left after my Thanksgiving baking. Speaking of cleaning out my freezer, I . . .
  • threw away 2 1/2 year old frozen pork chops.
  • finally finished up my cross-stitch project. I'll post a pic soon.
  • stayed up until 4:30 a.m. on New Year's Eve/New Year's Day with Val watching What I Like About You.
  • finished reading Field of Blood (Jerusalem's Undead Trilogy, Book 1),my book review blogger book. Look for my review in the next few days.
  • visited Red Lobster for the first (and second) time.
  • played Dominoes for the first time (or maybe I've played before and was just so bored that I blocked it from my memory).


  1. What a fun post!

    I have only been to Red Lobster once but loved it!

    I have probably 2 year old chicken breasts in my freezer that I should throw out. Really, all they are doing is taking up space. Sigh...

  2. Yeah, you went to Red Lobster again! Did you get the same thing, or try something new? Loved the Ritta Christmas, Part 1 pictures.

  3. Great to hear you're trying to read the Bible in a year, Becky! That's one of my New Year's Resolutions...or New Year's Goals, as I prefer to call them. So far I'm on track with my One Year Bible. How do you like your ESV Bible? I have a gift card for Family Bookstore and may just get one...

  4. I absolutely love it. The notes are so helpful, and I find myself reading them and then following the cross-references, etc. Also, I really like the way the ESV reads. It's easy to read but not too simple-sounding. I don't know if that makes sense. Basically, I highly recommend it!

  5. Count me in on the goal to read through the Bible in 2009! I decided this would be the year for me to do this as well, since I'm no longer able to be in Wed. night Bible Study at church (pre-K choir confilict). I decided to do a chronological plan, which will be interesting since it skips around to different books quite a bit and keeps me reading about events in order. We'll have to check up on each other once in a while and see how we're keeping up with our goals! :o)
