Allow Me to Introduce You!

It dawned on me the other day that I haven’t introduced everyone to the newest member of our family! And then I started thinking…have I introduced any of the rest of the family, so everyone can put names and faces together? Oh boy. I haven’t! So, here we go…

Well, obviously, that’s me there, holding the cat. Hey, y’all! If you want to know more about me, just CLICK HERE, and we’ll leave it at that!

On Delegating to Devices

Ah, the age of convenience! Or that’s what they call it, right? This “modern era” that we are currently experiencing?

If you stop and think about all the things that are possible right now that were never possible in the past…well. It’s pretty mind-boggling. And it can also be intimidating or even scary for some folks.

But I’m here to say: there is SO much to take advantage of! Why not make the most of it?

So I want to see if you are making the most of the devices in your home. These are options that are meant to be used to save you time, money and sanity! Let’s look at a few examples:

And So…I’m Learning…

This has been a very odd week. (And dear Lord, it’s only Wednesday). So I thought I would write an odd post and share some of the things I’ve learned so far. Ten things, to be exact. Take note, why don’t ya?

1. My brain is like an interstate. There are lots of cars (or thoughts, or tasks or ideas), and they can go fast or slow or change lanes…but they all move at once. Until ONE car wrecks…and then it backs up the entire interstate. **SIGH**

2. Do a little bit every day. Even if you have 25 different projects, if you do a little bit of each one every day, you’ll start to see progress being made, and you won’t feel so far behind.

3. Make sure you stay on very good terms with your HOA, if you have one. Bake them cookies, send them flowers, whatever it takes.

4. Look for opportunities to do something nice for someone else. And then DO IT. No matter how small. Just do it. You will never know how much it might mean to them.

5. Back up your backup. And then back that one up, too.

6. Take time to walk outside and look at the stars.

7. Hold your family close.

8. Hide a spare key where you can always get to it if you get locked out.

9. Don’t burn your bridges.

10. Take the pain reliever when your head FIRST starts hurting – don’t wait.

How about you? What have YOU learned so far this week? Do share!

Did You Hear of the City on a Hill?

We LOVE music at our house. If we’re not playing music. we’re teaching each other music, or learning new music, or harmonizing with TV commercials and household appliances! I’m serious – we might be just a tad bit nutty!

But especially in the car, we love music.

Every once in a while, I break out an older CD and reminisce about how the songs still speak so much to me. For the past week or so I’ve been listening to Casting Crown’s “Come to the Well”, and one of my favorite songs on that album is called “City on a Hill”. It’s gotten all up in my spirit, too, let me tell you. Hold on, I’m about to get deep, folks! (Well, as deep as I get, ha!)
