The weather is gourgeous here in small town, usa. It is in the high 70s, low 80s. There is a nice breeze. My lounge chair beckons.
Thank you for the well-wishes. My headache finally receded. For now. 🙂
And then I leave you with this thought…“Joy comes from knowing God loves me and knows who I am and where I’m going…that my future is secure as I rest in Him.” ~ James Dobson
Updated at 1:52pm: I got too hot and the kids are red-cheecked despite sunscreen, so we are inside watching “Brother Bear.”
I need to get moving on my reviews. I’m behind. As usual. 🙂

Here is an inconsequential blog, Sayruh style—
* Haven’t felt very bloggy lately.
* Still.
* Forever.
* And ever.
* Amen.
* I feel like I’ve had a headache forever.
* And ever.
* And ever.

Bye bye, Friends. I realize you are only a tv show, but you feel like my real friends. I “grew up” along with you. I turned 21 with you. I turned 30 with you. I got married and I had babies right along with you. I’ll miss you. *sniff*

No dancing today

Unless you call rushing a five-year-old to a bucket and trying to clean up what didn’t make the bucket at the same time a dance. In other words…the stomach flu has struck our house. So far it is just my five-year-old. *knock on wood* But that is enough. He doesn’t get sick very often so he is pretty pathetic when he does. Well, off to sanitize…
Have a blessed “flu-less” day,

Let us run…

Half the joy of life is in little things taken on the run. Let us run if we must…but let us keep our hearts young and our eyes open that nothing worth our while shall escape us. And everything is worth its while if we only grasp it and its significance. ~ Victor Cherbuliez

You probably remember the movie “Dead Poet’s Society,” and the teacher John Keating played by Robin Williams urging his students to, “carpe diem…seize the day,” and, “suck the marrow out of life.”

My dad figured out how to add music to my site. When I picked up Sara Groves’ new CD this song really struck me. Hard.

Has anyone read the Jan Karon Mitford series? I know some of you have. In one of the books a character has to rely on God to answer a prayer for a new heart. Well, we should rely anyway, but you know us humans we like to do everything on our own steam and then when all of that is done ask God for help. That is another blog for another day…maybe.


church directory

We had our family picture taken for the church directory today. Of course they took some cute shots of the kids, too, and we didn’t have the extra money to get them.
I hate that. The kids thought they were pretty good looking, too, and were disappointed that we only took the complimentary photo of the four of us. So I had to promise to take them back to have their pictures taken when we had the extra moolah. Probably around their birthday time this summer. Of course, they will probably not want their photos taken then. You win some. You lose some.
I’ll post the family photo when I get it. I promised hubby I’d blank his face out. I might just blank myself out too. 🙂

From a writing prompt: List your favorite authors.
As a a child and then tween my favorite authors were:
1. Laura Ingalls Wilder—specifically the Little House series
2. Louisa May Alcott—specifically Little Women
3. C.S. Lewis—specifically his Narnia series
4. Madeline L’Engle—specifically her time series
5. L.M. Montgomery—specifically the Anne of Green Gables series
6. Carolyn Keene—well, “she” is actually a conglomerate of corporate ghostwriters, but I loved Nancy Drew
7. Grace Livingston Hill—I haven’t read all of her books but Matched Pearls and The Enchanted Barn were two long-standing favorites
8. Janette Oke—especially her Love Comes Softly series
9. I can’t remember the author to the Trixie Belden series, but I wanted to be Trixie too.
In my tween/teen years, I also favored:
1. R.L. Stine
2. Francine Pascal—of Sweet Valley High fame
3. Ann Martin— the Babysitter’s Club
4. Then I went through a classic writer phase including Agatha Christie, Wilkie Collins, Charlotte Bronte, Poe, Whitman and more
5. Then I moved on to the macabre—Dean Koontz
6. Larry McMurtry

don’t fret

I’m alive. I spent the day with a dear friend. She has just found out that her hubby will be going to active duty in Afghanistan soon. She is pregnant. He won’t be here for the birth of the baby. So the kids and I spent the day enlightening her three-year-old to the world of sibling rivalry. 🙂 Oh, the things he has to learn.
