This was probably once of the nicest late December days that I can remember. It was over 70* with partly cloudy, blue sky and I ended up working outside all day. We ended up taking down our Christmas lights today and replacing them with our “everyday lights” which will remain up the rest of the year (these are lights that go around the inside of our patio). We started decorating the patio for this coming summer, which actually was an idea in part from a friend Cindy Wall during her baptism (photos will be coming on down the road).
As the holiday days wind down I am really looking forward to getting back to work (without holiday interruptions). We have so much coming up in the next few months, and I am really looking forward to seeing how it all plays out. One area we will be ramping up is “Twitter church”. So if you are not a Twitter member yet, sign up and see what it’s all about. Once you have signed up, you can follow Cornerstone from @cornerstonebuzz and if you are so inclined, you can follow me at @scottfillmer as well.
My Friday Feet post is a little late because I spent most of yesterday with family and at the movies. My dad and I went to see Valkyrie and if you have any desire to see the story about the assassination attempt on Hitler, I would highly recommend this movie. I knew very little about this story from WWII and although it was a movie, it did seem to follow the historical account fairly close. Although I am not a big fan of Tom Cruise any more, it is hard to deny that this was one of the better movies of 2008.
My friday feet post today is in recognition of the last Friday of the 2008 calendar year. This photo is on the corner of our patio. Deb and I placed our feet in the wet concrete just about this time two years ago when we moved into our house. It is a marker or reminder of the passage of time to me and I look at it almost every time I walk across the patio. 2006, 2007, and a lot of 2008 are almost a blur in history now but this image has become almost a time capsule in my mind of when we finally moved into our house here in Auburn.
Welcome home to all those who were traveling over the last few days, hope your New Year will be great.
