Captain’s Log, Stardate 12.21.2006

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

801. I finished another article for
802. I looked up a verse in my new TNIV Bible. It was cool. I love that Bible.
803. My Miss Saigon CD arrived!
804. I’m listening to Phantom of the Opera for the first time in years. It’s beautiful.
805. We had a good Bible study last night.
806. My husband and I had a good discussion in the car on the way home from Bible study.
807. I finished making my cards to give away
808. I had a great time talking with a client/friend on the phone the other day
809. I got my Scarlet Pimpernel CD!
810. I’m very glad I got the Concept cast of The Scarlet Pimpernel because I just realized the Broadway cast doesn’t have two of my favorite songs from the Concept cast, “Home Again” and “Marguerite,” unless they’re called different names in the Broadway version.
811. I think I’ll still order the Broadway cast CD because I love the snippet I’ve heard of Terrence Mann singing “Falcon in the Dive.”
812. I saw more of the shows on my TiVo, freeing up more space
813. I watched TV with my feet under the toasty warm kotatsu, which is a coffee table with a heating element on the underside and a blanket draped over it, sealing in the heat.
814. We had bought our kotatsu for only $35 at Salvation Army a few years ago! It’s from Japan and everything, so it was a good deal.
815. I packed up a few packages to ship
816. I finally called the mochi shop in Japantown, Shuei-do, and ordered three boxes for pickup on Friday. I’d been afraid they’d be too swamped with orders to fill mine. The mochi is for my parents, my aunty, and my grandma.
817. I’m enjoying being able to exercise while I work because I’ve configured my computer at my desk so I can stand.
818. I’m almost done with Sharon’s manuscript and it’s really good!
819. I got the conceptual designs for my cover yesterday! I’ll be talking today with my Marketing Director about them.
820. I used Heather’s recipe for onion dip and made some for my celery. It’s good! I made the low fat version and added extra salt.
821. I didn’t have an evening snack yesterday!
822. I made a cute gift tag with my stamps. I’m so glad I bought those new ones from Stampin’ Up.
823. I remembered to decline my Writer’s Digest Book Club selection
824. I got Robert Liparulo’s new novel, Germ.
825. I’ve got more judges for the Genesis contest second round! This is so exciting! I hope I can get another Chick-Lit, Multicultural, and Sci-Fi judge.


  1. Girl, you are WAY UP there on the list! Good. I enjoyed reading your thankful list.

  2. yay! you used my recipe! I'm honored!
