Monday Things

*I'm loving I have a Joni Mitchell and Nick Drake station. Loving that Nick Drake.

*I need to update my 2008 Books Read. Can't recall all the titles or authors to do it now.

*I found new leather driving shoes at Amazon by going to the Women's shoes, then seeing what was offered for 70%. Two lovely leather pairs arrived last week.

*I'm itching to try to drill through a china plate with my Dremel. Dremel doesn't offer a drill for china so I'll substitute something else. Don't know what but if you hear hollering and china shattering, it's just me.

*LD will be home for a long weekend. She's taking exams this week. I'm praying she'll find her happy attitude to do her work well and see some progress in her adjustment to the Art School. It's not easy to be 16 anywhere. If she could see herself as I see her, she'd take on the entire world.

*Little Church restoration is going very well. We are looking beautiful and dignified. Just found out last week that the furnace coils and motor are blown out. Age and humidity ruined the system. We need more money. I'm trusting we will be able to have heat this winter.

*Fall is here! I wore closed toe shoes last week! No more sandals even if the heat today was in the mid-80's. Mornings are cooler.

*If you weren't my friends, I'd be soooo lonesome. Thanks for being with me.

You always share things that seem to shine a light on the grace in everyday situations. I love visiting here.

Cathy said...

what the others said... and ... are you going to share with us your shoes? I might want to be like St. Cassie.

I can't even finish that sentence. It's too tragic.

And I LOVE pandora!!

I can guarantee that LD's happy attitude is not residing with Miss Teen.

I know it is not easy to be 16, but is it really necessary to inflict that anger/angst on everyone around.

Loneliness stinks. Come have lunch in Slidell.

Praying for more money and heat for little church.

Ahh teen angst and getting settled somewhere new. I have the male version at my house. New school with all project based learning is better now, but first few weeks were a rough adjustment.

Hope it's a good weekend. I'm so glad to know you even just a little.
