I don't want to be a complainer - but my computer is toast right now. Yep, its done the 'tick of death' to me once again and now its gone, gone, gone. Yeah, real, real gone. Well, its not a HUGE surprize - we brought it back from the edge twice now since summer, but the fact is my computer needs a new hard drive and there is absolutely no getting away from that fact. We will order a new hard drive tomorrow. Happy Christmas to me early, hey? In the meantime, my sweetie is allowing me to take over his laptop - thank goodness or I would be in real dire straits. As it is, I lost a minimum of data this time by backing up often to an external hard drive. So, if you are reading this - stop - go back up!!! This little kit was 'tossed' together by Miles and I as I lost the last elements I had intended to bless you with today. Hope you like it. I will continue to find a way to bring you my blog daily - no matter what!

Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might.
I was in the nursery at Church today. I made it out alive - ho, ho! Nursery means like 4 and under - and the possiblitly of having to change a diaper now and again... ewww! Thankfully this particular item has not happened to me yet. This is like my 4th or 5th time down under w/ the kiddies - its in the basement - and so I sorta know what to expect. From what I observed from my previous times was these kids do not want to be 'passive' - as is traditional e.g.: read a nice story, color and have a snack for 1.5 hrs... nooooo - these kids like to MOVE! I thought I would take the bull by the horns and be proactive. I whipped all the furniture around - to their utter astonishment and delight and using the couch, chair, and crib I made a 'tunnel' along one wall. We set the cushions overhead so that it was like a long cave. We even found mats and made it not so hard on the knees and we pretended that it was a cave with bears chasing us thru and then later it became a train tunnel. I was pretty good for one hour until Miles came and rescued me. He helped whip all the furniture back and then he instigated a big soccer tourney with the kids. By the time the mums and dads arrived the kids had worked up a BIG SWEAT!
The rest of the day went by very quickly. Miles cooked for me - a delicious dinner of pasta with his home-made tomato sauce. He loves to cook the sauce down from fresh tomatos. He also served sauteed portabella mushrooms and fresh broccoli - mmm can still taste it!
