Thankful and excited!

My blogging seems to have fallen by the wayside a bit.  Last week we went away for a few days to celebrate our wedding anniversary.     We did a bit of a detour so that I could get a photo of this amazing viaduct.

I've been really busy leading a book study on His Kingdom Come and planning new classes.
And that's what I am excited about.  I am working on a new altered book class called The Promised Land.

The class will have sections on how to alter a book and then a whole section on how to use that book for a study of these verses:

For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land - a land with brooks, streams, and deep springs gushing out into the valleys and hills; a land with wheat and barley, vines and fig trees, pomegranates, olive oil and honey;   Deuteronomy 8:7-8

And why am I quite so excited when I haven't even started filming the class yet?   Well, amazingly on Sunday I found the negatives of photographs I took in October 1995 when Andy & I went on a trip to Turkey.   At the time I was researching The Promised Land plants for an embroidery course I was on and I was fortunate to see and photograph olives, figs, pomegranates, date palm and grapevines.   On Monday I sent them off to be digitised and they came back yesterday on a CD and I now have all those photos to use for the Altered Book class.  I just need to find the photos I took last year of wheat and barley.

In amongst the photos was this one - showing Andy sitting on the pontoon waiting for a watersports class.   Wasn't he cute?

I'd better get back to my planning.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. No wonder you are excited Bernice, not only finding negatives just at the time you needed them but also now having the prints on a cd. It must have been so exciting seeing them after so many years, and yes, Andy does look cute sitting there!

  2. Happy anniversary by the way! I hope you enjoyed your trip, these arches look incredible in this photo.

  3. The viaduct is amazing but I'm trying to see it in in entirety and can't. Since I don't know the angle and can't see the sides or top it is so hard to understand. I see the arches in the middle portion but from halfway down, it looks more like a painting with a tiny green man looking over the edge of a long winding staircase. This is the most intriguing photo I've seen and it should be enlarged and used as "art"! I need to go uncross my eyes now. LOL
