We had another round of bad storms early this evening. However, when things settled down, there was a lovely sunset. When I saw it, I decided it would be nice to share the view with you. Of course, there was a screen in the way, so I moved it, and then my cat Jaws ran out onto the deck. He came back in…after I chased him around the deck in my nightgown. I hope none of the neighbors saw it. HA!
I’m looking at paint, since I’d like to paint my kitchen…anyone want to help do the painting?
I thought this was funny. I don’t why I thought it was funny when I saw it, but maybe it is because I’m so giddy and worn out. Enjoy.
Open mic night at the White House must be a hoot! Provide your witty and entertaining captions and I will take a break from unpacking my stuff in my new house and post winners Tuesday evening. Have a great weekend y’all!

Do you know what the secret of life is? One thing. Just one thing. You stick to that and the rest don’t mean sh*t… and as soon as Obama tells me what it is I’ll let you know too.
Let me be clear, I said “Delaware is the FIRST State” not Delaware is the “WORST” State.

5. Utah boy, 7, goes for spin to avoid church
I never could find an excuse big enough (unless I was truly ill)…stealing a car to avoid church surely breaks a commandment or two.

The Philadelphia Eagles have lost the heart and soul of their defense. Defensive coordinator, Jim Johnson has passed away. As a fan, I always saw the game face and his best efforts to put an amazing defense on the field. To his family, though, they have a lost a friend, brother, son, husband, father and grandfather. His players lost a father-figure and mentor.
The Phialdelphia sports community has had some hard hits the past few months: Harry Kalas, Gary Papa and now Mr. Johnson.
My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
Here is an example of why he is revered by the fans.
Hope you all are still there.
I’m wiped out. Once we are done with the apartment, I can concentrate on the house. I’ve been trying to keep up with both and I’m a bit fried.
I’ll post again in a couple of days.
I got to drive a 17 foot truck. I have to say, aside from not having a rearview mirror (scary) and not being able to back into a parking spot, I kind of liked driving it. The moving helpers I hired were awesome, btw.
Then I went and bought some flowers. Some need a little help, but that’s why I bought them. (I went to another store to buy accent pillows and a runner for my dresser, but I’ll spare you the pics.)
Then I napped for a couple of hours. When I woke up, I saw that my mom was being swallowed up by the chair. She escaped.

OTHER CAPTION CONTESTS
Family Security Matters
I was out to lunch with my dad yesterday and I was “observing” an elderly couple. You know how you see those couples who have been together forever? They melt your heart, don’t they? Well, this couple was more of the McBickerson type. The man was very rude and verbally abusive toward his wife. She seemed to provoke him, but perhaps only in his mind.
It made me wonder if they have ever stopped to think of how lucky they are to have each other in the first place?
It all boils down to decency and respect. I saw little. I dare say neither of them has read what the Bible has to say about relationships.
I have a habit of wondering how and why people treat each other the way they do. I used to be a very cold and miserable person. I didn’t like or trust anyone and would usually be pretty quick to judge and just keep folks at arms length, at least emotionally. Sometimes I think the isolation and “aloneness” I experience are the consequences for my actions.
Over time, though, I changed. I changed because I gave my heart back to God. And even though I deal with the aforementioned isolation and aloneness, I’ve learned a lot.
Which makes me think about those two older folks. I’ve been learning how important loving others is. I’ve been learning how important and precious accepting the love of others is, too. I think that is the hardest for me, because of the trust issues.
I have also learned that so much time is wasted on judging and finding fault. Nit-picking does nothing and the “power-plays” so often found in relationships containing the nit-picking and bickering smother the goodness that could be found. I wonder how alone those two folks I observed feel because of that darkness in their relationship.
These days I appreciate my family and friends more, and it makes me want to just let any petty thoughts I have just slip into nothingness where they belong.
