Hoop Jumping

Cartoon from Cartoonstock. If I can just take this one step at a time, I won't feel bogged down. I will follow the plan, check off each line, and eventually it will come to pass. Moving from moment to moment, working on things piece by piece, the work will get done and the goal will be reached. If I take things day by day, minute by minute, even seconds at a time; I could learn to pace myself and work with and not against - time.

Feeling like a sucker playing a shell game

Image from Savage Chickens. Sometimes when you have to move one thing in your schedule, the other things that were almost arranged collapse like stacked rows of dominoes. I have an important appointment that required an hour to drive that was scheduled two months ago for last Friday morning, but due to the storm that came through - we moved the meeting to this Friday coming. There was another meeting that I was asked to lead, for the same day and almost time - but an hour in the other direction. Where is a tardis when you need one? I'm sorry to disappoint those for the meeting I will miss in the morning. If you ask me back, I promise I will come AND bring you donuts.

Favorite things #4: Songs that make you feel something good

These are two great songs that I'd almost forgotten about - both of these songs have a way of pressing a peaceful feeling to the unsettled places of my mind. I hope they do the same for you. 1# Under the Milky Way tonight by the Church Sometimes when this place gets kind of empty Sound of their breath fades with the light I think about the loveless fascination Under the Milky Way tonight Lower the curtain down on Memphis Lower the curtain down all right I got no time for private consultation Under the Milky Way tonight CHORUS: Wish I knew what you were looking for Might have known what you would find Wish I knew what you were looking for Might have known what you would find And it's something quite peculiar Something shimmering and white Leads you here despite your destination Under the Milky Way tonight CHORUS Under the Milky way tonight.. Under the Milky Way tonight... 2# Give me Jesus In the morning, when I rise In the morning, when I rise In the morning, when

What's that rat a tap tap tapping in my brain?

Image from the blog Shoppe Talk . I had an idea. I think it was a good one. There was a beginning, a middle and almost an end...and I got distracted. Distracted by a cup of coffee, catching up in the office, some phone calls, and poof it was gone! The idea seems to have left the gray matter. Drat. Any suggestions on tracking down an idea that disappeared? Maybe that is where all the missing socks are as well?

Scrabble wisdom

Yesterday I was playing a game of Scrabble with my niece and my daughter's boyfriend and laughed at myself after looking down to my tiles to see this phrase... U BE WIZE... Misspelled and all, I still think it's a good message. It's much better advice, and grammar than the average fortune cookie, only you can't eat it. By the way, did you know there is a worldwide Scrabble website? Neither did I, till I found it today. Scrabble geeks of the world UNITE! WorldWideScrabble. Cartoon from Savage Chickens .

SWB Host Post: Dog Dances and Bread

To read this at the original blog site, go to Sleeping with Bread . Image from I spend some time every day taking my dog, Aggie that we adopted from the humane society in October, for a run or walk every day. Yesterday morning it was so cold (3 below zero) that for the first time she was not into the "walk" once we got out the door and down the street a ways. She took to picking up each paw, hopping around on three paws, switching the foot that was up in the air, and hopping around on the other three till she made it all the way around her too-cold paws. It took me a little bit to pick up on her hint to me that it was TOO COLD for a walk, but then again I have to admit that her one foot up, hop, hop, hop and other foot up, hop, hop, hop dance routine had me laughing very hard and very much out loud. Today was much warmer, well at least it was in the double digits - so I took her to one of her favorite places to bound around. We took our morning hike today at t

Almost Diner food

THIS Image from the blog Best of BTF . PLUS THIS... Image from the blog LUPEC Denver . EQUALS THIS... Here's a jazzed up blended version of the typical over-easy egg breakfast with traditional Bruschetta ingredients. It's a simple dish I've been making for years, but have not seen elsewhere although it reminds me of something I had years ago at a diner in Sufferen, NJ. I usually use muenster cheese, lots of tomatoes, and place the dish on whole grain/12 grain toast. If you want the egg yolks to be runny, don't overcook them and melt the cheese by popping the complete dish in the microwave and cook till the cheese is melty as desired. You could pop them under a broiler in the oven as well.(30 seconds/1 minute.) Bruschetta Eggs Cook two eggs in non-stick pan till almost over-easy, place Bruschetta tomatoes or diced stewed tomatoes over eggs, place a slice of favorite cheese over top. When cheese is melted, lay toast on plate and put egg/tomato/cheese on top. Enj
