Leftovers

Sorry we haven't blogged in a while. I suppose it's always a little harder to find time for it when we are entertaining a guest. Our visit with Jeff has been great, and soon my parents arrive! We're picking them up on Wednesday afternoon.

I don't really have much to tell you. Things continue to role along here (that was for you, Paso). I'm doing my best to keep my work load to a minimum for while Mum and Dad are here, but there is just so much to do. I'm hoping that some of the work that Toti and I did in December will bear fruit in January. Specifically, we're hoping to sell lots of filters.

Throughout 2008, there were events and happenings that I never got around to blogging about. There were photographs that I wanted to share with you that somehow never reached these pages. I've put together a collection of 50 of these photos for your viewing. Some of them are simply documenting some of my adventures that I never told you about or showed you. Others are photos that I'm proud of and wanted to share with you. Some are simply there to give you a better idea of what this country looks like.

Once you click the link below, you will be brought to a web gallery of these photos. I recommend you view them as a slideshow, but be sure to pause the show and manually advance the photos at your own pace. There is a caption that goes with each photo that will help you to understand what you're looking at.

Each photo is presented in chronological order, representing each month of 2008. Feel free to comment on the individual photos, or come back here and give me your thoughts. Putting together this collection was a fun activity, as I was able to sit back and remember 2008 as a busy year of adventure. I hope you enjoy viewing it as much as I enjoyed putting it together...

Cheers,
Timmy.

Tim,
Great photos. Put them together and make me a 2009 calendar. Better yet, put Promise pictures together and make a 2009 calendar.
Yeh!!

Amazing photos Tim! But...I think you need a larger life vest. Just a thought.

Wow, Tim. Delicious! I thought I would comment about my favorite image but I simply can't pick. I'm in awe, and inspired to create art of my own, and thankful for the glimpse into the life you guys have over there. Wow. Two photos that I absolutely loved: the laundry line picture and the photo of Promise's hand. Breathtaking.

And i'm off to look at them again!

Thank you.

Thanks so much for putting this together. It felt a bit like a visit, catching up on news. Missing you all lots.
Hope you are enjoying Mum and Dad's visit - I know how blessed they'll be getting to know their new granddaughter - I'm jealous!

Love,
Aunt Sylv

Hey Bethany!

I don't know if you remember me from EDUC at TWU. I came across your blog (i can't remember how) and have been reading it for the last month. It's so cool to see what you're doing now!!! Last I knew you, you and your hubby were making up kids songs for your practicum class! How did you end up down this road? It's very exciting to see Promise and the very cool path you are on! Just wanted to say hi and let you know you are in my thoughts and prayers.
