Someday, I will finish uploading the photos from our October trip to Canada -- I promise! Today I posted a few more snow pictures of the snow and Henrietta, our snow woman.

One of my pictures of Niagara Falls was chosen to be in the Schmap Niagara Falls Guide! I hope you'll check it out.

I also found this link full of photos of beautiful libraries at Curious Expeditions. From the post:

"Everyone has some kind of place that makes them feel transported to a magical realm. For some people it’s castles with their noble history and crumbling towers. For others it’s abandoned factories, ivy choked, a sense of foreboding around every corner. For us here at Curious Expeditions, there has always been something about libraries. Row after row, shelf after shelf, there is nothing more magical than a beautiful old library."

Snake on my patio
Originally uploaded by JennyWren129
I was outside on our patio, just about to refill the bird feeders, when I saw something on the food bin that looked like a snake! It was a snake! It is in the corner right by the house, and, later, it slithered down out of sight. Between chasing Sparky and Zephyr back into the house and before my camera batteries conked out again, I got a few pictures. We get quite a range of wildlife since we live right along the Olentangy River. I can't identify what kind of snake it is. (I tried using this site: www.oplin.org/snake/index.html ) Does anyone know?

The snake came back again today, so I got some more pictures. You can see them on my flickr site. I guess it might be sunning there or at least keeping warm, since the patio doesn't get much sunlight. Since it is a corner between our apartment and the one next door, it probably stays pretty warm.

Any ideas what kind of snake it is?

You know the Bible 100%!
 

Wow! You are awesome! You are a true Biblical scholar, not just a hearer but a personal reader! The books, the characters, the events, the verses - you know it all! You are fantastic!

Though I am relieved that I appear to know something about the Bible, since I am a seminary student!

Last week I finished my papers from Fall 2006 semester. I've yet to get my grades, but at least it is done. The next semester starts January 29 (my birthday). I will be taking Introduction to Christian Ethics (3rd time is the charm!), Systematic Theology, and Basic texts of the Mosaic Tradition (I think it focuses on Exodus). I'm sure that will keep me busy. I plan to continue working at the school's library, even though we are doing more transitions (new catalog and new procedures). It's been rough ever since we got a new circulation supervisor. Sigh . . . Plus I may have another job lined up in an area of interest (I'll let you know next week.)

I know I haven't posted much in a while. Let's see what I'll been doing. In December, at the end of the last week of the semester, Molly and I drove up to Frankfort, MI, for Cathy and Mike's wedding. It was just lovely, and we cried. I love northern (LP) Michigan, and I got to show Molly Interlochen, where I worked 2 summers. I think eventually I will have some pictures from that trip. We found the free WIFI in downtown Frankfort to check our email :) It was good to see Cathy's family and friends again. I had gone home with her for Thanksgiving 2004 and met all these nice folks.

Molly and I had a nice quiet Christmas here. We went to North Church for Christmas Eve morning, and Gale's church in Marion for Christmas Eve evening service and dinner. We decorated our little tree and the living room. Molly got me a beautiful necklace that I'd been wanting (you can see the pendant here). I used the money my grandma sent to buy a digital camera, which I had been wanting for some time. You can see some samples of my new photography at flickr. I'm still learning to use the software.

I made a short trip to Iowa over New Years to help celebrate my mom's 60th birthday. I hadn't been back to Iowa since Christmas 2004. Some things change, some things don't. It wasn't a long enough trip to see any of my friends or get to Iowa City or anything -- bummer. I think my mom had a good birthday. We took her out to dinner, and her present finally arrived this week. We got her a gift card to a spa for a massage. We think she'll enjoy it. I also spent some time while in Iowa trying to come out to my grandma. I'm not sure how successful I was, as she was having a bad cold and bronchitis while I was there. She said she has a class reunion the weekend of our Holy Union ceremony (May 26). When I got back to Ohio, Molly's sister Cindy, niece Sierra, and Cindy's partner Val, were here visiting from California. It wasn't a long enough visit, but I hope they'll come again.

I'm still having fun medical adventures, with their lovely accompanying bills. Grrr . . . In December I had another abdominal CT scan (blech!), which showed nothing much but a possible hernia. In January I had a sinus CT scan, which was normal. Now I have to see an Ear Nose Throat specialist in February. Last week, I had a colonoscopy (the clean out and the IV are the worst parts), which was normal. I'm not sure what the next step is in that area to figure out the continuing abdominal pain. The hernia isn't serious enough to do anything. The surgeon says it may be adhesions from last years surgeries or maybe some gynecological problem. Meh! I guess I need to see a gynecologist.

This week we've been working some and cat sitting for Kim and Gale. I've just been hanging out and relaxing a bit before it all starts up again. I'll try to post again sooner, but there are no guarantees. I've been reading LJ daily, just not posting.
