Non-Everyday Magic

Not everyday is a birthday. I had mine on Saturday and it was magical. I received lovely presents and my parents came to see me and I got to go to my favorite restaurant, Walnut Circle Grill, for dinner. The Husband gave me a silver disc pendant with C-Love’s name and birth details on it and my parents got me a fancy new camera.

On Sunday I played in the Carillion Choir at church for both the morning and evening services. The morning service and the first number of the evening service were both fine, but we had some problems with the second number. I myself missed a few notes. I wish we had a chance to re-do it. At the end of the evening service we had a candle-lighting where people pass the flame through the sanctuary and it was lovely.

I turned 32 and instead of waiting for the new year I’m making my resolutions for the next year beginning now.

1. Record every book I read for a year.

2. Take more pictures of C-Love and my family.

3. Lose 10-15 lbs.

4. DON’T get pregnant. haha.

5. Take advantage of the 3 hours of work-out time that I get a week. (I work for a company that allows us to go during work hours)

6. Take at least two trips as a family.

7. Post to my blog at least 3 times a week.

8. Have at least one get-away vacation with The Husband.

Christy: Do you want me to call you by your name on my blog, or do you want a pseudonym?

Husband: Like what?

Christy: I dunno. Mr. C, maybe.

Husband: No, that’s not cool enough. Tiger! No, wait. Not a good choice given the current events.

Christy: Yeah, try again.

Husband: Ratchet Thunder Stud!

Magic Moments

I have an unexpected afternoon off because I cannot stop hacking up a lung onto my desk every 10 minutes. Which makes it difficult to push the buttons on my scanner. My manager asked me if I had any ancestors who were Marines, since I seemed so determined to stay at my task.

I’ve been re-watching the British version of The Office. I just love that show. So subtle and complex…the American version spells everything out these days.

And today’s Magic Moment comes from the Christmas special. Dawn unwraps the set of oil paints from Tim and realizes what he means to her.

(Dawn and Lee are so tan in this episode..of course the storyline has had them living in Florida for the last two years — but I wonder if the producers sent them to get spray tanned?)

This is my attempt…

…to try to find the magic in every day. I know its there, but sometimes I don’t take the time to see it.
