**UPDATE** I found his other CD "We Were Here" at the library (looked on a whim!) and I wanted to withdraw my recommendation because there's at least one really bad word on that CD. :-) Still good music- listen at your own risk.

Okay... back to two columns and some new wallpaper... :-) Such a good feeling. It was funny- I really wanted a quilt background, but when I searched for that, only found some weird thing with horses... which was not at all what I was looking for... I'll have to keep looking, I admittedly didn't look very hard. But I love this one, so it's probably here to stay a while. :-)
And a new FEATURE on my blog.... "Libby's Camera Exploits". I have mentioned before I always find pictures she has taken when I download my latest pictures... I've decided to start posting them for entertainment. This week's isn't so bad... just her new school bag. (Cute, huh?)
Back to cleaning.... and thinking. I don't get much time to THINK (i.e. meditate) these days... which, in some ways, is a good thing because generally if I have too much time to think, I end up depressed. But.... a little bit of time should be good as long as I can stay focused on God and what is good...
Now I'm off to clean. More later.......

What I've done is messed up my blog by switching to 3-columns, which I thought I wanted, but now realize I don't. It'll have to stay this way until I have time to fix it. Which is not right now! :-)
Did you know, though, that there are people who will turn your blog into a published book?! And just when I was wondering where this would all end... do I just keep my blog online for all eternity? Until it's like 4,000,000 pages long? No.... periodically, I have it published into a book I can keep on my shelf for all eternity... or at least until I die... and then my grandchildren can have it. So cool.http://blog2print.sharedbook.com/blogworld/printmyblog/cutestblog/index.html

You (whoever you are!) are going to want to go directly to the grocery store and buy these Hershey's Cinnamon Chips.. trust me... I found them when I was browsing through the baking chips the other day and I noticed this wonderful-sounding recipe on the back of the package for Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Cookies... so I came home and made some. SOOOO yummy! Unfortunately, I threw the bag away already without copying down the recipe, so you will have to find it on the back of the bag like I did! (I did NOT include the raisins in mine).
Here they are before they went into the oven:

This is our annual company photograph. Really, I swear. Okay- I'm sure you didn't already guess it, but not really. Ha. I just couldn't convince everyone at my new office to stop and pose for a group picture so I could talk about them on my blog (not sure why!!!) And a blog entry with just words is so lacking. Besides, there are five of us just like in the picture and I am the only female, just like in the picture, so it sort-of fits... just use your imagination and picture Pam as me, Jim and Ryan wearing dirty jeans and t-shirts and looking all hot and sweaty from being out at jobsites, Dwight much older and dressed the same as Jim and Ryan but walking much slower, and Michael with no suit jacket but occasionally a tie. Then picture a layer of red dust on EVERYTHING in the office. Then you about have it. :-)

The teacher in Sunday School this morning shared something kind-of cool that he said he had read on the internet. Now, I can't verify his facts (I spent 1/2 hour searching, but came up with nothing), but I think it's good whether the facts are true or not.... so I'm sharing. Does this look like your front door or any of the doors in your house? This is what all of our doors look like:
The teacher says that this is a six-panel door from a Puritan Architectural style, and it served as a visual reminder upon entering (or leaving) that Christ was victorious on the cross over death and also fulfilled the law. See below for my "visual" of this....
