It's Friday!!!!
Do you have any plans?
Our youth group starts meeting on Sunday. So excited to see everyone and meet the new junior high kids!
I have a dessert I want to make for tomorrow. It's made from Star Annisse. I've never tried them, though I've seen them in the grocery. If the Kroger Marketplace doesn't have them, I'll go to the one specialty store near here. Seriously, if Jungle Jim's doesn't have it, it isn't available or able to be imported to the U.S.
We're having a special service on Sunday about 9/11. 10 years ago tonight, I had arrived in DisneyWorld and was eagerly waiting to see Micheal W. Smith, Plus One, and Jars of Clay.

Book Review

Video blog talking about the autobiographies written by the Little House on the Prairie tv show actresses.

Thursday, September 1, 2011


I typed this up a few weeks ago. I filmed a video blog, and will post it just as soon as I’m done adding some links to the bottom.
What should I blog about today?
How about a reference to my Facebook post a few weeks ago about a “whirl of gaiety”? Anyone get the reference? It’s a chapter title in Little Town on the Prairie. Laura talks about how there’s church, school with a fun crowd, Friday night literaries, and a Thanksgiving New England Supper. It is the term she uses to describe a pleasant rush of activity. I felt that way a couple weeks ago, and I do again.

Monday – tennis lessons
Last night – Well, it was a movie night with friends but lately we talk to much to watch a movie.
Tonight – Toastmasters
Tomorrow – Dinner with our youth director to plan the coming year.
Saturday – Amusement park with a friend

Update: I’m starting to add a second tennis lesson to the week. Something has to give. I think it’s going to be Toastmasters. I don’t think I’m going to quit, but I’m going to focus just on me. In other words, know that my life is crazy and focus on completing my tasks and if I don’t have a task not to worry if I miss a meeting. This goes against how I usually act, but it’s that or give it up entirely.
