Folks: Today I began my new religion blog at the Washington Times. You can access it through this URL: http://video1.washingtontimes.com/beliefblog/ but usually you can find it on the blogs list on our “front” page on the Washington Times site. There seems to be some technical probs getting it up, plus it was supposed to be on the main page for the first week, at least. So use that URL until you hear differently! Am also posting one of my new “mug shots” for the blog.
Last night, Veeka and I lit the first Advent candle on the wreath with Stephanie as a guest at our dinner table. And Veeka, who sometimes has a tough time taking on new words, took all of five minutes to learn how to say “cookie,” especially after I baked her a batch yesterday.
That was during one of her more angelic moments. These days she’s very Two: knocking down the baby gate, rifling through my purse and tossing my cell phone down the steps. She’s hidden one of her library books and some lipstick she found in my purse. And at 4 a.m. today, I was awakened by a little tousled head, that, like a submarine periscope, slowly rose from beside my bed to hover above my sleeping form. My disgusted cats jumped off and she, of course, climbed in.
