Grasshopper Days

Grasshopper Days

For today, Monday, April 30, 2018.  

Outside my window...  a damp day.
Gunnar and I have been for a walk already,
with rain misting around us.
Don't be fooled - the pics (below) are from late last week.

I am thinking...  sure, normal - average - can be boring.
But normal can be a huge blessing, too.
I like my life uncomplicated.

I am thankful... for our church family :D

I am wearing... my I'm-not-leaving-the-house-today uniform -
sweats and a t-shirt.
Clearly, I aim to impress.

I am creating... I have some Christmas fabric I'm making a plan for.

I am reading... still working through When Life and Beliefs Collide: How Knowing God Makes a Difference.  Not a book to rush through.

I am hoping... for warmer, breezy days, perfect for...

A friend from church messaged me that at her apartment
she's not allowed to hang out laundry because,
she was told,
"it looks trashy".
Good grief.
Only trashy people wear clothes???
I mean, I'll 'hide' the undies in the middle of the mix, but really... trashy?

In the kitchen... I think meatballs for dinner.  Thawing some sausage to go with the ground beef, then make some sweet and sour... mmmm mmmmm.

Around the house... I've been helping my elderly next door neighbor-cousins navigate some big changes in their lives.  They wanted to thank me... 
with my very own recliner!
I have AWESOME neighbors :D
And my very own chair.
Which the boybarians may sit in when I'm not in the room.

I am pondering... I remember reading that someone had invented a Kardashian filter, so you never ever had to see anything about them (from the internet) again.
When will someone invent a cilantro filter?!?!
I never ever want to see another recipe with cilantro again.
Why is this trendy?
It's like eating soap. Ugh.

A favorite quote for the day...
Never be sympathetic with the soul whose case makes you come to the conclusion that God is hard
God is more tender than we can conceive.
- Oswald Chambers

A peek into my day... I posted on Friday about the "family coaster" I made to organize our drinking cups, yet this is what I still find in the kitchen...

WHY is it too hard to move that green cup six inches back onto the coaster???
And can you guess who's non-compliant? ;D

A peek into my world...

Men have to follow so many rules in working and providing for their families, that when they are at home, they want to feel a little bit of freedom....even if it is just putting the glas where he wants๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘ Give him some space to enjoy his home as much as you do.๐Ÿ’–

I'm so glad to get the email of your blog again. It's like a little bit of sunshine. Great quote by Oswald Chambers. I'm posting that at the office.

Happy to see all the flowers. I did hang my laundry out today! Yea!

I agree with you on the cilantro (and cumin with it). I think both smell like under-arm odor. It seems like a majority of recipes include those ingredients. I just can't handle it!

Have a great week!
