A Day At Home

We’ve gotten to the age where when you stand up from sitting for awhile, you stand there for a few seconds just to make sure everything is functioning correctly.  Then when you start to move you have to coral all your appendages to head in the same direction.  For instance, my mind is taking me to the bathroom but my left leg wants to go toward the diningroom while my right leg tries to head for the kitchen.  It’s like herding katts to get them all marching in the same direction.  “Good Grief, Charlie Brown!!!”

Yesterday was a great, great, great northern Michigan day.  The sun was out, the temperatures were in the seventies, and the humidity was low.  Judy worked on her quilt or, I should say, on baby Fortner’s quilt.  She has all the piece parts cut out.  This morning she plans to start the “some assembly required” phase.  It’s going to be beeeeauuuutiful.

While she was working on her project, I spend the day catching up on my reading.  I’m reading “The Forgotten God” by Francis Chan.  It’s about the ministry of the Holy Spirit and how, in today’s culture, we are “quenching the Spirit”.  It’s a good read and worthy of consideration by all Christians.  I’m going to take a break from nonfiction books for awhile to do a little light and fun reading; that is, Lilian Jackson Braun's “The Katt Who Could Read Backwards”.

We, also, visited with Ray and Pat a couple of times yesterday afternoon.  Then, after dinner, we played a couple of games of Bocci Ball.  We would have played more but the mosquitos got thick and drove us inside.  That’s a fun game and we’re going to really enjoy playing on a regulation court once we get it set up behind our site at Rainbow Plantation.

Let me say this about that.  Boy, does it ever seem good to not be going to w*rk.  We really enjoy having our time back and that’s all we’ll say about it, so have a great day and . . .

May God Bless  - - - - - - - -


  1. I loved the Lilian Jackson Braun books..good fun!

  2. What do you do with your books after you've read them? If you recycle, can I be on your list of recyclers?
    PS. I do understand the idea of log sit, stand, pause before moving.
