a little bloggy catch-up

Bloggy Break Announcement

It is time for Amanda's first official "bloggy break."  There are so many things I want to blog, but instead of blogging about them they are trapped in my mind.  And, it's kinda weird, I've been asking lots of blog-related questions to myself, but instead of taking the time to answer me, I've been "pre-composing" posts.  This in turn irratates me.  (Is it possible to irratate yourself?)

Anywho,  I am going to take at least a week off from blogging, but I might take a little more than a week--I don't know.  Last May, I took an "unofficial" bloggy break because my brother was here--so maybe this will become an annual thing.

Carnival_of_beauty Carnival of Beauty
The Carnial of Beauty will continue.  There are even a few more hours left to submit to this week's Carnival, "The Beauty of the Holy Spirit" over at  Sara's blog, Stones of Remembrance.  And, next week, the theme is "The Beauty of Sunshine" and will be hosted by Patricia at Pollywog Creek. 

So please consider joining us this week and/or next week.  At least stop by and see what we are all about.  Also, if you do particiapte in the CoB, please remember to thank the hostesses each week!!

One more thing, about the CoB, I've been doing some praying and some brainstorming, and I am looking forward to making a few changes upon my bloggy break return.  Hopefully some positive ones.  Thank you to all of you who offered me ideas and encourangement--on-blog (comments)  and off (email).

Thank you
Dinner Survey Update

Oh!  Thank you,  thank you, thank you to all of you who took the Dinner Time in America Survey.  There were over 150 survey participants to finish the survey!  My students were/are so excited.  They are now starting to sort through the results.  It is so fun to watch them respond/learn from to your answers.  Thank you so much for helping them!! 

When we meet next week to discuss the project, they will select the winners of the contest.  Then, when I return from my bloggy break, we will announce them here. 

Hope you all have a great week (or two)!!

in joy,
