30-Day Challenge: Move a Mile a Day

This came up somewhere, so why not do it???

30-Day Challenge

In other news, I am making little ♥s for #yarnifiedlovebombs and giving them away or putting them places. So far, I’ve given out 7 and put one in each of 7 bags for houseless ladies I hope to see on Sunday. I’m putting other things in the bags also.

Life is good when we focus on others ~ fun even 🙂

I found these 2 books at a collector’s store in Leavenworth, KS last Monday ~ what a find ! ! ! My grandmother had one of these at her home and I loved reading the true accounts of life as it was in the late 1800s and early 1900s. The original was published in the mid-50s and these are reprints from the late ’70s. We enjoy the true short accounts of people’s experiences with wild animals, Indians, etc. etc.




back to the blog

I lost the book that had my password in it since I had changed it and so I never could get back on here, then I listened to the 700 Club show today about hoarding and decided to go through my books on the bookshelf and either list some of them on Amazon or give some away. There was my green book with my password, so here I am again.

ImageToday is the National Day of prayer. I found this prayer guide I intend to follow indefinitely. http://commit2pray.com/7×7/

Some tulips in bloom, but alas, snow is expected tonight 1-3 inches. Oh dear, the tulips can probably handle it and also anything else growing outside.

The farmer market begins tomorrow. I told the guy I would not come because of the weather and he said. that is fine, probably a wise decision. In a week the weather should be a balmy 69 degrees.


a good helping the homeless idea!


This morning, our daughter’s last Sunday before taking off next saturday into the wild blue yonder for 9 months wanted to visit her favorite church to say her goodbyes. I wanted to go with her because I like the church, but we never called that church our home because of the 19 mile distance from our house. However, our 2 kiddos went there during high school years so they are more than well acquainted with our son and daughter.

The guest speaker was a missionary couple to Caracus, Venezuela. The started a church there and gave it over to a national. They also have some property with an orphanage. This wonderful church we visited this morning will be taking a team to help with various projects there. I WANT TO GO ! ! ! So exciting.

Then I came home, ate a bite and helped my husband with the homeless serving of coffee and hot chocolate. We meet with friends there who bring sack lunches and then we give them the Panera bread we pick up on Friday nights to make sandwiches and pastries for the next week. It’s a great life – today it was raining so not so many out there – we were only there 40 minutes and sometimes it is 3 hours. God is good. Psalm 68:9-10 “Thou, O God, didst send a plentiful rain, whereby thou didst confirm thine inheritance, when it was weary. Thy congregation hath dwelt therein: thou, O God, hast prepared of thy goodness for the poor.”

p.s. won’t be happening that we get to go on their church’s trip to here, but I am happy for them and happy I even heard about the orphanage there.

snow today

Yesterday we served coffee and cocoa to the homeless again. Two men were turned away from the shelters for one reason or another and they are the 2 men who got the sleeping bags I brought; I hope they kept them warm in the out-of-doors!

Snowed today and I shoveled driveway for 40 minutes. Maybe it will melt off before I need to do it again. It is pretty and nice to have at least 1 snow this winter.

I like collecting saucers – here are a couple of them. I especially like the one with leaves I got for 29 cents last week.
