Judy's Gone Fishing!

If you RIGHT CLICK on the download link, and choose the option "Open in New Window" you won't be taken away from my blog entry, rather you will be able to download the element and still read today's entry.

I've created today's tapes to tickle the fancy of my dear Sister-In-Law, Judy who is going through a lot right now. She and my brother have made a decision to downsize their life, selling their home of many, many years and moving into a big RV - a radical change in their life and lifestyle. They still have a young'un at home, my sweet niece Melissa - and this is really a big step for her. May God Bless you all during this time! I'm excited to hear the adventures God has planned for you, and how He may use your new lifestyle as a ministry! (Now get out there FISHING, Girl!)


Today's entry is another short one as I'm working diligently on a project (Yes, A. I'm cracking the creative whip over myself yesterday and today!) Shirley Shanley - I plan on publishing your layout tomorrow.

Thanks for sending me your lightening stories. I KNOW I've missed one or two - please forgive me. Dawn shared her lightening story with us:

"Not nearly as interesting as your friend's lightning stories (although I had a modem fried by lightning through the phone line. Weird because it went through Dh's puter first and didn't effect his but fried mine.): A couple weeks ago, we were getting a bit of a storm. At the exact same moment, we saw the lightning and heard the thunder (making my DD and myself jump & look at each other). My 17yo DS came downstairs to tell us he just saw the coolest thing: When the lightning hit, it apparently hit a pole across the street from us. No damage, fire, etc. but he said it was the "hugest" ball of fire he'd ever seen...and it was totally random that he happened to be looking out his window at that exact moment."


I'm reading a good book right now, it's called Tree - A life Story by David Suzuki (illustrated by Robert Bateman) and it's just fascinating. I learned a neat fact about the Pink Lady Slipper flower from it:

Lady Slippers tempt bees into landing on it's big, overhanging lower lip of it's pink flower, whereupon the upper lip closes and traps the bee inside. The bee struggles to get out and as it does it bumps into the flowers anther stem, picking up a headful of pollen, which, after the bee gets away, may deposit it onto another flower. Pretty cool, hey?

  8. Barb, thank you SO much for the tapes AGAIN!!! Every time I download a set, i think "she cannot outdo this one"...then you do this!!!! I have to admit, this set is by far my favorite for a couple reasons...first and foremost b/c i LOVE the Jesus one!!! and also b/c some of my favorite pics of my family center around fishing...thank you so much for your daily blessing of joy on here...also thank you for the link to the Breathecast, i will be going to check it out as soon as I post this, and then i am going to share it with my fellow Christians at a ChristSisters forum I am part of are such a beautiful soul inside and out...have a blessed sunday!!!

    really love these tapes! thanks so much.

  12. All your tapes have been lovely so far Barb. As for lightning all I can say is don't go out in a storm. We had a kid get hit when I was stationed in Orlando. He died not from the lightning but he couldn't move when he fell into a puddle afterwards and drown. And that ball of fire is actually a plasma ball. They are scary stuff, saw one once when working in the Navy and it scared the poop out of me. Did some serious work on the electronics too.
    As to you catching up with me I've been super busy and gotten almost nothing done. I'll ttyl!

  13. thanks you ,thank you, thank you ...awesome, awesome, my sister inlaw spoils me troublely...but I love it to you soon barb..still packing ..and moving stuff in our new home...

  14. sorry to "bug" your comment page again, but you could always do a set of tape based on the night sky or night time (lol ok so this is TOTALLY selfish b/c i would love to be able to say "hey blog readers, Barb has a coordinating set of tape for this") but i really do think a nighttime/bedtime set would be adorable!

  15. me again..
    I just noticed a really bad one in the list next to this video.Why do people have to do that.?? You will know what I am talking about when you go to the site.You may want to take that paragraph off of my comment..and that is okay with me.:) I just wanted you to see this video.:)


  16. Barb,
    Thanks for all the tapes. I have been guilty of downloading a bunch and forgetting to thank you for each. Your ideas are so creative...THANKS!

  17. thank you so much for these awesome tapes...i am not sure how i missed them lol you have become a daily part of my routine!! :) have a WONDERFUL day, you always help make mine sweeter!
