2nd Advent Sunday

Do you have a sweet tooth? I certainly do. That’s why one of my favorite things to do in the Advent Season is baking Christmas cookies. I love the smell of the spices used in Christmas cookies, I love the smell in the house when they are baking in the oven, and I love decorating the cookies. But best of all, I love eating them together with my family, sitting at the living room table, lighting candles in our Advent wreath, brewing a delicious cup of coffee, and indulging in the cookies. Yum.

My first batch of Christmas cookies is already gone. That means, I’m off to new baking “adventures” this afternoon. What are you up to this second Advent Sunday?

Have a wonderful 2nd Advent Sunday.

“Principle 7.5” – Storm Isaias

Sometimes the best planning doesn’t work because forces of nature, and I mean that in a literal sense, divert your course.

That’s what happened to me this week. I was in the midst of finishing my blog post for this week and with a tremendous Boooom … my computer screen went black; our power was gone. I couldn’t access my blog draft anymore and the internet was gone as well. A huge tree in our neighborhood had fallen across the street taking all kinds of cables down with it.

What do to? I felt miserable for a little while because I had cut it so tight with my writing… but there wasn’t much I could really do except for waiting; hoping that power would be restored quickly.

OK, it hasn’t happened as quickly as I would have hoped, but compared with other areas, we are still at the top of the line of getting our power back. To cut a long story short, since it is already Saturday, I decided to skip this week’s post of my book discussion about Story Branding. I’ll continue next week with “Principle 8 – Being Everywhere.”

Have a wonderful weekend and see you next week,
