Logo Wars!

My husband and I are designing a logo for my new freelance website.  Please leave a comment letting me know which you prefer.  Suggestions for modifications are also welcome (by me, anyway, since I don't have to do that editing!)

An Unknown Agatha

I recently finished a book by Agatha Christie that you probably haven't heard of.

It doesn't have Miss Marple or M. Hercule Poirot.  (That's probably why you haven't heard of it.)  And it's not a murder mystery, although it does involve a different kind of mystery.  It's about an international conspiracy, a wild journey, and a courageous woman who choses an adventure beyond her wildest dreams.

I really enjoyed it, so I'm noting it here:

Merry Christmas!

May we all make room in our hearts 
for Him for whom there was no room
at the inn!

"The Ones Where You Look Right at the Camera and Smile"

One of my blog readers told him his favorite photos are the ones where I am looking at the camera and smiling.  So in honor of my feast day today (St. Lucy, pray for me!), here are a couple of photos from warmer days.  Both are with a lovely couple, Greg and Jacqueline.

These were from a few weeks ago.

I knew we'd gotten some leeks, even though I forgot to weigh them.

We didn't follow the instructions at all.  We planted them directly into the ground, I think in May, instead of starting them indoors in February.  They aren't as big as they would have gotten if our transplants had survived, but they were still edible.
