Well folks it’s Christmas Eve. Time is flying fast.

The last few days have been very busy for me as I have been on a massive cleaning operation on my humble abode with the help of my friend Rachel. (I’ll post before and after pictures later…maybe) I still have some work to do (bathroom and kitchen still needs attention) but the bulk of it is done. My place looks entirely different now. Much more roomy without all of the clutter.

The cleaning itself though was a weird experience for me. It sounds weird but having someone else help me on this was like letting someone see all of your dirty laundry (literally but also metaphorically)… it’s almost like the disorder of my home is the external manifestation of my internal life as well. It’s just weird having someone see it like that (even a friend you trust).

But anyway the good news is that my life will hopefully get a little more sane now, or at least I hope so.

So today I’m doing a little last minute Christmas shopping and also am painting some Christmas cards (watercolors) to go with some of the presents and also to mail to friends (which will be late unfortunately). This evening I’ll be presenting a Christmas-themed lesson at my parent’s church for Christmas eve and then tomorrow will mostly be hanging out with my family doing Christmas stuff.

Well that’s all of the news to report for now. My internet connection availability is a little flaky for the next couple of weeks so if you need to get in touch with me phone is the best bet. The number is (four zero five – four seven six – five six two zero… I spelled it out so I don’t end up on some telemarketing list or anything.)

For all of my readers, I hope y’all have a Merry Christmas and good times with your family and friends over the holidays. Thank you for taking the time to reading what I write. It means a lot to me to know that there are folks out there (some I don’t even know) who hear me.
