As I mentioned yesterday we are doing a Beth Moore study from the Book of James. We viewed a short introduction video and I am convinced this woman must be on some kind of a "holy high" what with her faster than a speeding bullet delivery. She honestly overwhelms me with her "over-the-top" enthusiasm. We have 2 women in our group that are not returning because of this study...they just can't "take" her. I know she has a kazillion women that absolutely adore her, and I almost sound blasphemous with my critique, but omg, she needs to take a breath. I LOVED our last study, it was quiet, thought provoking....this one....hmmm. OK...don't hate me for my opinion, and that is exactly what it is...."my opinion."
OK...on to better thoughts. My Downton Abbey groupies gathered at a nearby restaurant to chat about our absolute favorite TV show....we brought books, articles & magazines that were all about Downton Abbey. We all agreed, Edith will be a hit this year, and Maggie Smith as Lady Violet Crawley has to have the best lines of all, delivering them with perfect pitch. Do you have a favorite character? We chatted and drank, some had tea, others had a glass of wine, ate and chatted more. A grand afternoon.
I drove around a bit after we ended our gathering trying to capture some snow shots, but there are so many piles, and tall piles that it was difficult to get to a spot to capture the beauty of the landscape.
Gotta go....kids are getting restless, been gone for most of the day so you know they want a little time with Mom.

Until next time....
