For Today:  Sunday, September 20, 2015

Note:  I finally found a new digital camera that didn't cost a whole month's pay, so I have pictures.  Yay!

Outside my window …  

Well, this is actually outside in the churchyard.  Autumn is kissing the foliage to let us know it's coming.

I am thinking...  
  • I'm thinking that I'm running out of people who really care.  I don't have much, but I may have to start paying people to give a rat's butt.
  • I'm considering quitting everything except going to work and going home.
  • "Some of us learn from other people's mistakes and the rest of us have to be the other people."- Zig Ziglar.  I think I'm kind of tired of being the "other people."
  • With the onslaught of depression trying to take hold way before winter, I'm considering doing another 40 days of gratitude series.  I think I need it. No, with what I just wrote, I know I need it.
I am thankful...  For rest.  For a new week to try to get it right.

In the kitchen...   

From the Workshop...   
I made another puzzle afghan --this time in baby colors.


I'm also trying a new sewing project, but more on that later.
I am looking forward to...  heaven.

A favorite quote for today... 

"People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought that they seldom use." - Soren Kierkegaard 

One of my favorite things... 

Bill Gaither - "What's your favorite animal?"
Mark Lowry - "Fried chicken."

A few plans for the rest of the week:   Work, errands, nothing exciting that I know of.

A peek into my days...

Playing with my new camera to get used to it.

And now for something totally different...
