I looked forward to our first meeting of 2022 and working from the new ‘Writers in Residence’ books. I think writing about our favorite childhood memories and working on our unique individual projects for the Lord will be a fun and challenging goal for the new year. Hopefully we all learn to improve our relationships with God and one another and we learn a great deal about improving our writing so we bring God glory.
I was disappointed to have to cancel our meeting. However, with the recent snow storm dumping between 10 and 18 inches of snow in our area within the last few days I knew the driving would be dangerous, if you could get out of your driveway. I experienced the horrible driving conditions when I had to take my husband into the hospital on Friday for a minor surgical procedure.
First I had to back out of my driveway in about 10 inches of new snow. The streets of Sandpoint had snow burms on both sides and piles of snow in between the two sides of the street. Many of the streets had ruts that were deep enough to bounce your car around on the icy roads and the streets were narrow, some with cars parked along the side of the road. I drove at a snail’s pace to do my best to keep from sliding into another vehicle. In addition, the parking lots and sidewalks were extremely icy, making it dangerous to walk. As a result I decided to cancel our January 8th meeting.
Our next meeting is scheduled for January 22nd at the library at 1:30 p.m. I look forward to seeing you all again and to starting the lessons in our new book. If you have a book at home I encourage you to get it out and work through the first part of the lesson. I believe the sections are 1.1 through 1.9. Do not fill in the graphic organizer or write your 10 sentences on the page in the book. Try to draft them on a piece of notebook paper and bring them with you to the meeting. We will look through them together and see if we can make improvements before writing the final sentences in the workbook. Also, if you are working on writing projects at home, I encourage you to bring them along and we can spend some time working on them as well.
If you have any questions or comments, please call or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am happy to talk with you or meet you in town somewhere to go over the material. Otherwise, take care until we get together again on January 22nd.
May the Lord bless you all!
