About Denise Fuller

2nd Sunday of Advent

This morning, I went with Mom to Rise Community Church again. The sermon was about John the Baptist preparing the way for Christ. John had an unusual style of preaching. He called his listeners a brood of vipers and said that the axe was ready to cut down the tree to be burned, but since it had been 400 years since the last prophet, people flocked to John to find out what they needed to do to be prepared for the coming Messiah. The answer was that they needed a change of heart, and that’s what we need too.

A coat for Tucson

On our way out here, Mark noticed a couple of times that Tucson was shivering with cold. He said he’d like to get a coat for her, so I’ve been looking. A week or two ago, I found a dog coat that was labeled Extra-Large, but when we tried to put it on her, it was too small. I thought I was going to have to make her a dog coat, so I went to Goodwill today to look for something I could adapt.

A very full day

This morning, it occurred to me that we have kept studded tires for the pickup truck in my father’s garage for the last several years. Since we no longer have the truck, we should try to sell those. I talked with Mark, with Dad, and with Les Schwab where we bought the tires. Les Schwab won’t buy the tires back, but they did give me all the specs on them so we can try to sell them ourselves. That was only one of several pieces of business I had to take care of this morning.

Short fuses all around

Over the weekend, Mark and I didn’t get to bed before midnight either night. I was staying up late to process the pictures I’d taken each day and to write my blog. I don’t know what Mark was staying up late for. Whatever our reasons, this is not the best thing for us to do.

The first day of Advent

My brother-in-law, Rob, is a man of many talents. Not only is he a band teacher and a conductor, but he is also an Anglican priest. This morning, he had the distinct pleasure of having his granddaughter, Isabella, act as his acolyte.

Mom and Mark and I headed to southern Oregon today to visit my younger sister, Lauryn, and her family for the weekend. The family consists of my brother-in-law, Rob, and my nephew, Nate, as well as my sister. Also here are Rob’s daughter-in-law, Cynthia, and his young grandchildren.

A Happy Thanksgiving!

When my sister, Sherill, was alive, she always used to have the whole family over for Thanksgiving. It was potluck-style, but she’d assign a dish for each person to bring. The table was long and the conversation was boisterous. Thanksgiving has slowly dwindled down to family members having their own celebrations. It’s kind of sad in a way, but Mom made it a little happier for Mark and me today…
