Wordless Wednesday: Walking in a Whisker Wonderland


We have been fortunate that our cat has shown only a very mild interest in the Christmas Tree over the years. I see online though, that others are not so lucky. Some of you are definitely facing various cat-astrophes and twinkling tinsel turmoil that would leave Santa's elves running for cover, lolol! 

I'm sorry that I'm laughing... Someone make a cat-proof tree that people love too!

This is not just a present; it's an experience that lasts well beyond the holiday season.

Free Vinmeo Link to see "Surprised By Oxford!"

When faith and intellect intersect, you know there's going to be a story to tell. "Surprised by Oxford" is a movie based on a memoir by Caro Weber, a former scholar of and then first female dean at one of the Oxford University colleges. 

I don't usually watch romantic movies. They make me cry. And the classic and predictable scenes of true love did indeed leave me weepy, but it was such a good story as well. I recommend seeing it, if you're looking to relax and be entertained. It's worth watching.

Giveaway! Free Tickets to See "Journey to Bethlehem"

Many thanks to AFFIRM Films, Inc. for providing a sample of the product for this review. Opinions are 100% my own.

Journey to Bethlehem: "A young woman carrying an unimaginable responsibility. A young man torn between love and honor. A jealous king who will stop at nothing to keep his crown. This live-action Christmas musical adventure for the entire family weaves classic Christmas melodies with humor, faith and new pop songs in a retelling of the greatest story ever told—the story of Mary and Joseph and the birth of Jesus. A unique new entry into the collection of holiday classic movies, this epic Christmas musical is unlike any before it."

Been awhile since I ranted (good or bad). Here goes...

I had a big post of the pros and cons of teaching in my new school district written but for the sake of privacy (I would never want to offend students or parents), I have deleted it. It's stifling not to be able to share, but that is probably the way it should be.  I will tell you 2 true stories though. Both left, 'Wow, that's incredible!' impressions in my mind and on my heart.
