What a BE YOO TI FUL weekend here! Blue skies, cool breezes… what’s not to love? We even had a blue moon that the clouds didn’t cover! And… we got to babysit our in-law’s cows and chickens for the weekend. Which I love. They’re so cute and they moo and they lick you, and if the weather’s nice like it was, run alongside on the other side of the fence as you walk by. Yeah, they don’t exactly smell fabulous, but I can live with it for the short time we’re there feeding and watering them. See how fascinated they are by me? No, they’re thinking “crazy human, you’re not shoveling me corn at me like you should be.”
“You should be giving me feed and patting my rump instead of holding that strange black box by my face.”
Yes, I swear that’s what they’re thinking. How I know this, I can’t tell you, but I do. Can’t you see it in their faces?
Although further away in a different field, their cow cousins have the exact. same. expressions on their faces, so I know they were thinking the same thing.
Yep, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it…
Aside from cow sitting, this weekend saw me close to throwing my computer across the room in frustration. For some reason, all my pictures showed up as black squares on the thumbnails in the download file, so consider it a miracle really that you’re able to see these cows. I literally just said “eeny meeny miny mo” and picked a black picture then stuck it in this post. It works fine in the post, but not in my computer, so if anyone out there has Geek Squad experience, send some wisdom my way.

Hi, Christine! The link about Bible journals reminded me of Shonna Slayton’s blog. She has several posts about Bible doodling. Here is one: http://shonnaslayton.com/tiffany-richards-using-digital-stamps-tracing/. I love Monday Mondays–so packed with neat ideas.
That’s SO nifty! Thank you for sharing it with me. I have journals of many kinds; I don’t know why it never occurred to me to have THAT kind of journal. It definitely appeals to my visual thinking style. And thank you for the kind words about the Monday links. Some things are just too good not to share, you know?!?
Just read 4 gifts we’re given when we suffer. Could not agree more with them. There is a redemptive side to suffering. The woman said right after a tree went through her roof. I realize how blessed I am because it could have been so much worse.
The older I get the more I appreciate that for every valley there’s a peak, and… vice versa. Life wouldn’t truly be a good life without the ability to recognize there’s good in the bad! I’m so sorry about the tree falling on your house, but it sounds like there WERE plenty of blessings through all of the ordeal! xoxo
