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.)
