First, the feast:
When someone smiles at you, do you smile back? As a rule, yes.
Describe the flooring in your home. Do you have carpet, hardwood, vinyl, a mix? Hardwood floors and ceramic tile in the kitchen and bathroom. I do not like the ceramic tile. In the kitchen, I would like to replace it with cork and in the bathroom I’m not sure. Maybe travertine.
Write a sentence with only 5 words, but all of the words have to start with the first letter of your first name. Girlish grins grow genuine glee. (I’m not a poet .)
Do you know anyone whose life has been touched by adoption? Absolutely. And the joy that has been brought into their lives is beyond description. A very special mother’s day to the women who unselfishly put their children up for adoption instead of seeking alternatives.
Name two positive things your mother, or a mother-like person in your life, taught you: Random acts of kindness and honesty.
Life has been a whirlwind lately. A clear calendar doesn’t mean a thing around here. I thought I didn’t have any plans and God sad, "Ha!"An example would be Tuesday. Himself and I visited three people in our local hospital. Yes, three. I was going to write about them but will save that for another day.
It is very important for adults to go to a dermatologist for a full body skin cancer screening at least once a year. Himself needs to go twice a year and recently had some pre-cancerous cells removed from his ears (common in men). He needs to wear a hat year round now to protect his face, scalp and ears from the sun (his forehead has grown larger over the years ). There are few men I know of who like to shop. Well, Himself is no exception. However, we have been to store after store to find just the right hat for the summer. Gripe, gripe, gripe. "I look so old in a hat." ~heavy sigh~ We still haven’t found one but at least he is using the sunscreen. Maybe I will make him wear a bandana because I don’t want to waste any more gas on his vanity!
Trying to find a new breakfast place since the Cafe closed has been very disappointing. The "feel" of the place just isn’t anywhere else. Besides, where else can you get fresh fruit instead of potatoes with your eggs? However, we do have an IHOP (International House of Pancakes) which serves grits. You just don’t get grits all that much this side of the Mason-Dixon line!
Now that the weather is warmer we have spent more time outside with Bells. Ugh! There is a reason to have children when you are younger. Isabella is very active girl and keeping up with her is a challenge. Two days a week is enough.
I have been reading up on ways to deal with Isabellas sensory processiong disorder. It has helped me to understand how she ticks and to know how to work with her behavior. It’s good stuff.
Prince Caspian is opening in American movie theaters on May 16th. This is the second of seven books of the Chronicles of Narnia written by C.S. Lewis. The first one was The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. I would highly suggest renting the first movie and then see the second. Actually, I would recommend reading the books. Time very well spent.
I’ll end with a worthwhile quote from Mr. Lewis: "I sometimes wonder whether all pleasures are not substitutes for joy." It got me thinking.
I hope you have a wnderful, safe weekend. Blessings, gail
