Little book of color


Little book of color, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

Nothing going on today except grading essays, writing a paper and an article, cleaning, and shopping. I keep looking at this tiny 2x3 inch book on my desk for relief, and felt the desire to inject some color into this b&w blogging month. So here's a colorful treat for a grey Saturday of sheer duty.

Beauty and the Beast


Beauty and the Beast, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

I hope to have better photographs for the blog tomorrow after the opening night hoopla, but since Johannah is taking the camera this afternoon, I thought I'd at least post a picture of the marquis over the entrance to the theater. While I was on campus this morning organizing her graduation, I snapped this photo to record the big night. Johannah is a student director. We're so proud of her.

Caitrin sews a quilt

The headphones connect to the TV which is behind her. She says she can hear the show over the sewing machine that way. Caitrin sews while "watching" Arthur. The paintings on the wall on the left of the photo are all by Caitrin. She has her own little gallery. The quilts are sewn for and donated to leukemia patients. According to her teacher, she is a natural seamstress. This seven by five block quilt top took her about three hours of sewing. Her t-shirt says: "We R the fu+ure."

Rain, rain, go away

Rain, rain, go away
Rain, rain, go away, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

That's rain water on the floor because it rained yesterday, all day, beginning the disastrous snow melt, and flooding the basement. I spent part of the afternoon bailing water out of our basement window insets and mopping up inches of water near our washing machines. I wore these shoes to try to keep from sinking through the top layer of melting snow, but to no avail. I was soaked by the time I came back inside, right up to my knees.

I woke up with "Here Comes the Sun" playing in my head. May it be so! Right now, we're on two hour delay for the schools because the fog is so thick, the buses can't drive. What a wild ride of weather we've had!

Edited to add: I just went outside to give my husband a set of keys and nearly broke both wrists and my tailbone falling on the ice. All that melted snow? Now treacherously frozen.

Council of Chalcedon


Council of Chalcedon, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

Describe the key christological teachings stemming from the Council of Chalcedon.... Try to connect your explanation of the doctrine of Christ emerging from the Council of Chalcedon to Christian understandings of the human person. Use Origen and Athanasius' Life of Antony to think about the extent to which, when we truly imitate Christ, some kind of transformation in our personhood can occur. If you can, relate these ideas to the process of salvation. (At least think out the implications of them on salvation.)

My early morning study look is needing a little transformation, I'm thinking...

Flickr is having problems with photostream

If you find that some of my photos are suddenly odd or not mine, it's because Flickr is having a widespread caching problem. Random photos are appearing in lots of photostreams. For those who are also experiencing this problem, you can read more from Flickr here. Should be fixed some time soon.

The Cone: off season

I've been wanting a shot of this place in winter since we started this project. I've added a few smaller shots to show you the extent of the snow. This is the most popular hangout in West Chester in the summer. Our little bit of kitsch.
