I posted this as my Facebook status a while ago, but since I've been laughing about it all day, I thought I would repeat it here....
..... I don't get many visitors at my office, so it's always particularly exciting when someone stops by... this morning, an older man with a very heavy country accent walked into my office (with a younger man in tow) and handed me a green folder. He said, "Here's my resume. I don't know what y'all do here, but I figure you need someone to do it". Then his companion, mouth full of candy, asked me where the garage can was so he could throw away his candy wrapper.
Note: There might be better ways to go about your job search than this.

My budding Interior Decorator, Libby, decorated the top of the piano with some hand-made confetti....

From my recent bible reading.....Under the leadership of Joshua, the Israelites are conquering the land that God has promised them and one of the first cities to go is Jericho. After marching around it once a day for 6 days and 7 times on the 7th day, they blow their trumpets and shout and the walls "come tumbling down" ... and a man named Achan decides that God was probably only half-serious when he said, "Destroy everything in the city. Don't keep ANYTHING". He steals some things and hides them in the ground under his tent.

I've reached (and exceeded) number 100 in my list of 1,000 Gifts! That went by so fast and so easily!! God is everywhere! And I bought Libby a journal and she has been enjoying journaling, too. Her journal is precious, listing "bubble gum" and "education" among her gifts. :-)
And I leave you with some of my gifts from the past 2 weeks..... air conditioning.... nice pens.....clean sheets.... fresh, ripe pineapple.... the quiet stillness of 4:00 a.m..... good fiction.... the smell of freshly cut grass...musical instruments.... open windows in the evening.....

Trying to be efficient and use my slow cooker every Monday, and wishing to do something other than throw in potatoes and meat, I bought a Taste of Home slow cooker cookbook for cheap. This week I had plans to make PIZZA IN A POT... but realized the 3-4 hours it needs to cook in the slow cooker is both too short (to do in the morning) and too long (to do in the afternoon)... so I adapted the recipe and cooked it in the oven.... with awesome results. This is very, very yummy.....I renamed it PIZZA IN PYREX.
