I have been very busy over the past week putting the finishing touches – actually rewriting at least 6 drafts – of an article on postmodernism for our denominations Canadian quarterly paper. It has been hard work but is work I like and I even like the discipline it requires. It makes me really sympathize with Becky writing her Master’s paper. It helps to have a couple of helpful souls around who don’t mind editing. Thanks Randall and Leo. Without you two I would be way too verbose. I wonder how much it will get edited before it is printed.
I will maybe post the whole thing here even if it is a bit long. But maybe I’d better wait till it is published in print first.
Meanwhile, Christmas is coming and I have a score of things that were not getting done while I was writing. Pizza to organize for this Sunday’s church Christmas party, gifts to get for certain people, hampers to help with, and my least favorite – phone calls to make. I also have to call and make a doctors appointment; another thing I have been putting off way too long. And our outdoor lights have not even been hooked up yet this year.
This weekend is going to be a bit hectic I think. Making lemon squares, tourtiere and shortbread. Housecleaning and wrapping presents. I need to do so many things. And then Christmas arrives and I have a week off. That will be the best – some time to sit and read in front of the fireplace.
