Wow, so this is what relaxation feels like! I have such a hard time relaxing that I forget what it feels like. Here we have no choice but to enjoy the company and relax! Today's been a day full of fun and new toys-- a wonderful day. Who knew I could relax?! Certainly not me! I'm looking forward to more of it!

Showers of blessing

So much has been going on lately it's been hard to focus on the positive. At the same time (and in a very strange way that makes this difficult to explain unless you get it), all the hard stuff means all I've been able to do to get through it is pray and look for and focus on the blessings God's just throwing at us hand over fist. Some highlights that have helped me lately:

  • So many friends, especially the guys I work with and those in Tapestry (HUGE blessing!)

  • Growth outside my comfort zone (still trying to see this as a blessing, but I know it must be)

  • Our house is still standing

  • My car is paid off (FINALLY!)

  • Visits with family

  • Thanksgiving (need I say more???)

  • Falling leaves/ Autumnal color on the trees (also, finally)

  • Bebo Norman's Christmas CD (Born To Die, especially)

  • I still have my hearing and my sight, despite David Crowder's best to take them both away!

  • 11 years ago today was my first date with my husband- Happy Date Anniversary, CC! I love you!

  • and the list goes on...

Thanks, God!

Stupid fire


When it rains, it pours...

pa-rain.jpg It's raining, it's pouring;
The old man is snoring.
Bumped his head
And he went to bed
And he couldn't get up in the morning.

Rain, rain, go away;
Come again another day;
Little Johnny wants to play.

Well, well, well

Just when you think life is finally settling down and beginning to return to normal, there's a surprise waiting for you just around the corner.

And now, on to other things...

2007 Boo!Last night was a disappointing follow-up to last year's Halloween trick-or-treaters. Last year the kids were cuter, more polite, and there were more of them-- I basically stood at the open door last year with the giant bowl of candy until I ran out.

This year? No standing at the door! No stand-out kids that make you want to keep them; no especially polite ones-- in fact I got several who stood there waiting for more! AND-- no running out of candy! So now we have leftover candy-- not a good thing.

Here's hoping next year will be better. The nice thing is it's now over, and Thanksgiving is literally around the corner! Woohoo!

It's the most wonderful time.... of the yearrrrrrr!!!! (that's me singing, in case you couldn't tell)
