My family says I talk to myself
but I prefer to think of it as
“thinking out loud!”
Here’s what I’ve been “thinkin” lately…
– My children melt my heart. Their cards with very thought-out
pictures and words totally encouraged & blessed me. They
are a gift from Jesus… and I don’t take that lightly!
– Our neighborhood is the best in all of Detroit. Everyone is
so friendly, easy to talk with, truly kind. I love it here!
-When people ask what I’ve been doing lately I cannot
think of anything to say… I’ve had tons to do but simply
cannot think of it when asked… what’s up with that?
-Apparently all ladies who wear my size prefer GIANT, ugly
printed clothes; at least that seems to be what the manufactures
believe about us. Grr
-“Exercise in the MORNING?” (when those 4 words are side-by-side
they become cuss words to me.
– Mother’s Day was calm & relaxing. All 5 kids were with me.
Awesome church service with our Real Church family.
I didn’t cook. We enjoyed the sunshine & the Red Wings game
(on TV of course)!
-I’m SO done with homeschooling this year… but unfortunately
we still have 3 weeks of it left. Press on Mrs. Teacher. Press on.
– Membership to the Detroit Zoo makes such sense. We love
it there! More about the wonderfulness of membership tomorrow.
-Most people in our city may not be quick to start a conversation,
but will jump right in & have a friendly conversation if spoken to.
I love Detroit!
– The attitude that I should create is an “atmosphere thick with love”
Ephesians 4:2b (The Voice) Such a cool way to say a difficult but
-Are there questions that I hope people won’t ask me?
– “We have to ask the uncomfortable questions so we can
become comfortable with holiness” Chilly Chilton
(from Sermon 5/8/11)
– I am NOT a gardener. Some of my neighbors thrive in this
area… I, however do not. Just going to “flower” section at the
Eastern Market stresses me out. No kidding. (Ask my daughters
-Although I’m don’t enjoy growing plants, I sure enjoy
buying them from the farmers at the Market each Saturday
morning during the warm weather months.
-Still on the subject of gardening… these little herb plants I
bought a couple weeks ago are actually growing & I picked a tiny
bit of cilantro & used it on my sandwich today! YUMMY!
(I feel kinda proud of myself… hee hee)
– Hmm, I’m really trying to get at least 6 hours of sleep every night…
which is an hour more than I usually have. Not a huge difference, but
at least my brain doesn’t melt into mush for the hour & half after lunch.
Ok, yeah, that’s a plus!
