Its been a mixed type of weekend.

Spent yesterday doing the "Saturday Chores" type of day......vacuuming, changing the sheets, laundry. Well and of course......catching up on line with Angie and Rose......kept hoping Heather would show up on IM but no luck! I miss you Heather:(

Didn't get any stitching or stuff done on Saturday but did begin working on knitting some pygmy puffs. Someone tell me WHY I pick eyelash yarn for my first ever knitting project????? LOL

Joe has been nursing a cold this weekend. Hopefully he will feel better by tomorrow for work. Speaking of work, I start my new job tomorrow -- part time secretary for First UMC here in town. Hours are 9 to noon and I'm looking forward to it.

Ok, I still haven't figured out how this happened BUT somehow today, I let Rose talk me into becoming an Administrator for her Nine & 3/4. Boy is she going to have alot of teaching to do!!

People !

Its amazing how many people refuse to look at things and make a decision for themselves anymore. Because so and so said it, it HAS to be true. Because it was on the internet.......because I got it in an email.........that's proof its true.

Gee and how many of these people study and come to knowledge of things on their own rather than be spoonfed someone else's opinion.

Better yet..........How many of these same people actually STUDY their bible??????

No, I don't mean sit down and read a few chapters and close it for the day.

No I don't mean pick up a daily devotional book, read the entry for that day and close it.

I mean pick up your Bible and STUDY what they are reading? Looking up meanings, checking translations, actually letting God's Holy Spirit teach and lead them rather than some "man". Man's wisdom is folly in God's eyes.

Refusing to study for oneself and then judging others who do is just plain hypocritical.

Hot, hazy Saturday

Well, not just Saturday. Pretty much this entire week......108 yesterday!!!!!!!!!! And there's really not much you feel like doing when its this hot.

Today, we have managed to get some things done around the house.....laundry, looking for a few things, organizing. Joe did some cleaning up in the yard......oooooooo and he just informed me I should NOT leave out the fact that he did some mowing and weed eating as well LOL.

We've had 3 power surges in the past hour..........Joe said you could hear very distant thunder when he was just outside.........and alot of it!

Maybe we'll get a good storm.......and it will help cool things off!

Which HP Character are you most like?
25 - 42

You're dreamy and absent-minded, though you often show startling intelligence. Sometimes you're Luna Lovegood, Harry's spacy acquaintance; at your best, you're Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore, far more serious-minded than your behavior might imply.

First Steps

Today, I did my first scrapbooking page. Now mind you, I've made up my mind to do this in May. I had purchased everything I needed. But yet, I waited this long to attempt make that first step.

Ironically, the page is entitled First Date, first step..........

Sooooooooooooooo, why is it so hard to take that first step sometimes?

And when you least expect it to be, like with this scrapbooking page. I mean, its only paper......I can redo it if I don't like why wait so long? Yet, other times.....I can just jump right in and do whatever it is.

The more I think about it, the more I come its so easy to trust God with the big stuff and not the little stuff? Isn't He in ALL of it??????? I have to remember more that if it matters to me then it will matter to Him as well.

A beginning

Every thing must have a beginning and here is mine.

Finally, I take the jump at blogging. Am I totally ready and enthused? No, not really. I wonder how much can I share without becoming totally transparent. But maybe it's time to have someplace to open up.

Tonight, I just sit here and get used to the idea that I have my own blog.

Something to enter?

How about, a new job. the end of this month, I start as a pt admin. Something to help us out and get me up and out of the house more often. Not alot to do in a small town.

Not a bad place.........but not alot here to offer people.

From here, we shall see where this goes.
