One Thousand Gifts-16

Captain’s Log, Stardate 12.03.2006

I’m participating in the “One Thousand Gifts” list from Christian Women Online. Click on the picture to find out more about it.

401. My husband won a coupon for coffee from a coffee geeks online board.
402. Thank You, Lord, for women like Janet Edgar (The Inn At Shadow Lake), who loved You and put You first and inspires people even after she’s gone home to be with You.
403. has so much good stuff on it—I revisited it yesterday. Good blog posts and columns.
404. Another good women’s online site is Christian Women Online. They really try to develop blogging community and interaction with memes and blogging themes. They’re the ones who told everyone about the One Thousand Gifts meme.
405. I get some traffic from a neat mom site, Mothers Click, which promotes online dialogue and community.
406. I finally picked up my Bible in 90 Days again, and I’m on day 17. It was so nice to read the Word.
407. Sharon gave me a supercool stamping idea, which is perfect for holiday cards
408. I made more cards yesterday! They’re Christmas cards, but since I rarely even send Christmas cards I’m not sure if I’ll use them myself or give them away as gifts.
409. Captain Caffeine is about halfway through my manuscript, the first book in the series. He’s checking my sports references. He’s entertained, which is the best I can hope for since the man rarely reads at all. This will be the first book I see him finish in the entire time I’ve known him, which includes the years we dated.
410. I had a really good night’s sleep last night. I’m not sure why. I could even have slept more, although I got up because it was already pretty late.
413. I’m having fun doing this One Thousand Gifts thing, because I can include the special people in my life.
414. Captain Caffeine is selling his cigars, and he made enough money to pay for the amp he just bought for his electric guitar!
415. I’m so excited about my new computer!!!! I can’t wait for it to arrive. I am hopeful it will help motivate me to finish this manuscript!
416. Heather leaves for Denver in 9 days!!!
417. Snickers ran out the open door today, but I was able to run out with one of my homemade peanut butter biscuits in my hand and she came RIGHT BACK TO ME! Amazing.
418. My husband and I have determined to be more firm in disciplining our dog from this day on.
419. I bought a couple quote books yesterday from Amazon (relatively cheaply) that I hope will be useful for penning quotes inside cards that I send to people. I should also go through my Bible and put all my favorite verses in a Word document to use those, too.
420. I just got my new Romance Writers Report. I enjoy reading the articles, especially the ones on career.
421. I got a nice hug from my husband yesterday.
422. I broke a bowl yesterday, which is actually a good thing because it was a cheap bowl and now there’s more room in my cabinet.
423. Hot tea with soymilk and sugar is so comforting.
424. These Nissan stainless steel travel mugs are just awesome for keeping my dinks hot for so long!
425. Advil is a wonderful thing.
