For Today:  Sunday, August 9, 2015

Outside my window …  Still in the throws of a hot, but beautiful summer.

I am thinking...   about Dave Ramsey and how I wish I could have a face-
to-face consultation with him (or two).

I am thankful...  for air conditioning.  Our unit was out for two days and I felt absolutely boiled.  The repair was simple (thank the Lord).   I'm also thankful to start a new week.  This one wasn't the greatest, but God is faithful.

In the kitchen... I hit a milestone.  I actually finished a large bag of spinach before it went bad.  This week, I'm going two for two.  I enjoy spinach, but it's hard to finish it before it turns into compost.
From the Workshop...  I'm still working on the service projects I mentioned last time.  I'm also trying to come up with an idea for a door prize for the senior center.  It's due Friday.  I have my idea for next month, but nothing has hit me for this month yet.
I am reading...  Finished Get Out of That Pit by Beth Moore.  The review is here.   I'm nearly done with two other selections.  When those are done, it will be time to pick something new from the shelf.
I am looking forward to...  being out of debt.
I am learning… that there are lawyers who aren't scumbuckets...I just haven't met them yet.   If you are a lawyer, read my blog, and are not a scumbucket, show me, don't tell me.
Around the house... time to start decorating the craft area with new Christmas items...when I make them, that is.  :)

A favorite quote for today... 

"I believe strongly in support groups, but a support group alone will never get us out of a pit.  Somebody in the group better be on the upside looking in.  Preferably way up.  Otherwise we're liable to keep cheering back and forth, 'That was so good!' when in reality, none of us is doing well.  If we keep patting each other on our broken backs, how will they ever mend?" - Beth Moore

One of my favorite things...  Current favorite TV program:  Whose Line is It Anyway?

A few plans for the rest of the week:   Work, rest, cleaning up a pile of financial doo-doo (hopefully), catching up on reading and craft projects.
And now for something totally different...

  1. Love your quote - and the book!
    Seems like spinach goes a lot quicker than most greens, at least in my house...
    Hope you have a fabulous week!
