Really, two months?

Seriously? I haven't blogged in over two months? I really didn't know it'd been that long. I've been really sick since early October. I've had pneumonia and spent six days in the hospital and I'm still not quite over it. I'll compile the whole story and post it here when I'm up to it. Let me just say, pneumonia stinks.

Holy Cow

One of my college friends, Darien, posted this video on facebook. It blew my mind and makes me a little scared for my job! It's four minutes. Go watch. Then come back to leave your comments.

Sunday School Visitor

So, I got to church this morning and started setting up the room and talking to the other teachers. I looked out the window and noticed something on the window frame. Thank goodness it was on the outside, or I would have totally freaked out.

To be truthful, the flash made it look more fierce than it did in person. Some of the kids enjoyed being held up to the window to get a better look. My friend Karen was creeped out by it and wouldn't even get close to the window.

Blue Springs

My friend Lacy invited me to a function her church had at a beautiful location where a natural spring bubbles up from the ground. It was truly lovely and the Episcopalians were very welcoming to their Baptist visitor.

Let me emphasize that this photo doesn't do the location justice. It is a truly magical place.

Blue Springs
This is the mouth of the Blue Spring
This pool was created by the spring.
Trees and Ferns
I just thought this was pretty.
There were many varieties of ferns there.

Here you can see where the Blue Spring gets its name.
This view is from the opposite side of the pool than the other photo.

The photos truly don't do it justice.
Pretty Flowers
These pretty flowers were everywhere and provided a nice splash of color.
Magnolia Seed Pods
These are magnolia pods. This place must be beautiful in the spring.
This is the creek leading away from the mouth of the spring.
Dragonfly over the Creek
See the dragonfly near the center of the photo. He was hanging out on the plants over the creek.
There were ferns everywhere. They were so pretty.

You can click here for a fullscreen slideshow of the photos. Worth it!

Where you do the clicking.

I'm so behind in posting pics. Click here to catch up with my 365 project. From there you can click on the next photo in the little browse window on the right.

I also took a trip to South Carolina for week of vacation. You can see those pictures here. There are descriptions under each of the photos.

The only yarn store within 90 minutes had a going out of business sale last Saturday. Laurie and Lacey and I went. See pictures here of all our fun.

Tomorrow we get a new group of two-year-olds in Sunday School. Every year I get nervous and excited. We so loved our class last year.
#213 of 365
It's hard to leave them to go to a new group, but we know we'll love them, too. I made them Jello Jigglers. I hope they like them.

I'll post some knitting updates soon. I've finished a few things that I haven't even gotten into ravelry yet. See, it's not just the blog I'm neglecting. You know, it's all facebook's fault!
