Meme break

Another beautiful day, the last for a while. Tomorrow will be colder, and there may be snow over the weekend.

Hope I can finish this and get it posted before I leave for church. I’m reading Scripture tonight, and that’s one of the few things I’ll confess to being good at.

  1. This may be a good spot to say that I probably won’t be seen much around here for a month or so. I’m going to stop blogging regularly and use the time for reading and family. I still plan to publish a few longer posts and read your posts and comments, Lars.

    Thanks for writing.

  2. You alarm me, sirrah. Do you mean you’ll stop blogging regularly for only a month, or that you’ll take a month off and then still only blog irregularly?

    Don’t leave me here all alone, guy!

  3. Heh. I’m sorry. I don’t quite mean that I will take a month off, but I’m close to that. I have some posts planned, but I doubt I will blog short news items for a few weeks. I don’t guess it’s good for BwB, but it should be good for me.

  4. I hate change… 🙁

    …But with a wife and four girls, plus house & yard, plus job, plus church, plus websites, friends and family, plus reading and writing, plus blog… not easy…- whew, Phil, I’m worn out just thinking about it. And, I am not too surprised about your time off.

    My son, after he met you at church, did mention to me that you had your hands full and seemed to balance it all well.

    Go and do what you have to do, Phil. Lars has broad shoulders and he will do well.

    Hurry back soon.
