Stampin' Time

I had an enjoyable evening at my friend J's house last night. She's my crafty rubber stamp guru who hosts a "stamp camp" at her house every month. (She's also a dear friend that I love, who is always there for me, and listens with all of her heart. We're all lucky to know her.) I arrived, ready to make some cards, and was surprised to discover that I was the only one who made it. While this isn't great for J, it was a lot of fun for me. I had everything all to myself, and we had a really great visit. Thanks to her, I created these.

She's invited me to her ladies bible study next week, and I'm looking forward to checking it out. I haven't been part of one since I left BSF back in 2001. I've tried doing them on my own, but it's not nearly as fun as having a group discussion. They're studying the Proverbs 31 woman -- I'll let you know how it goes.

I'm also contemplating taking a conversational Spanish class with some friends. I admit, the idea of being a student again, and having homework, completely freaks me out. I wasn't exactly the best student back in high school and Jr. college -- not because I couldn't do it, but rather because I didn't want to be bothered. Stupid? Yes. I would change that if I could, but here we are, and I'm blessed to have a decent paying career that I basically fell into.

Back to Spanish...do I do it? Will being there with friends help to keep me accountable? Not to mention the fact that being a grown up should help make a difference. I think it would be an interesting challenge to see if I can finally rise to the occasion of being a good student (in a class that doesn't involve English or Drama.)

I say take the class! My husband knows some spanish to get him through his job but wants to buy the rosetta stone program. It's kind of expensive but everyone says it works.

I, too, think I would be a better student if I took college classes now. Back then I was so burnt out on school I kind of stopped trying.
