Oops, I Forgot to Blog (Again)

I guess I just didn't have anything to say. What did Twain say? Better to keep silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and prove them right? Something like that.

Anyhow, here it is, Advent again. Lots to do. The tree goes up this weekend. I've got a start on the shopping and I'm going to do a bit more online and at the stores today. Not in a panic. Yet.

The minor feast day today is John of Damascus, theologian and hymn writer.

For today among his own
Christ appeared, bestowing
His deep peace, which evermore
Passes human knowing.
Neither could the gates of death
Nor the tomb’s dark portal
Nor the watchers nor the seal
Hold him as a mortal.

-Come, You Faithful, Raise the Strain, verse 4
