walking

Oct. 28th, 2005 09:10 pm
First, a quote from (who else!) George MacDonald:
"All that is not rooted in him, all hope or joy that does not turn its face upward, is an idolatry. Our prayers must rise that our thoughts may follow them."

Since I had today off, and no particular plans, I took a walk...4.5 miles...nice.

While walking I...


  • saw some pretty ducks

  • was barked at by five dogs (two of whom were so fierce they didn't even bother to get up)

  • thought about how much I love trees

  • thought about communication and how silly I was to be frustrated at our ISP being down for a day (thankfully it wasn't a whole day though)

  • saw the sun reflected in the irrigation ditch and mused on the Son's reflection even in dirty water

  • was glad when the sun went behind some clouds because it was making me sneeze

  • thought about how nice it was to live in a small community where when you walk by folks working in their yards wave and say 'hi' and you don't have to be nervous about the people that stop and ask if you need a lift

  • saw some tow-headed tots who were delighted to holler out a greeting and wave vigorously

  • thought about how when I walk it seems as if time stops and I could just keep walking forever

  • decided that the folks least likely to move over to the middle of the road for pedestrians are young men and old ladies

  • realized with delight that a waterfall sounds just as beautiful even if it's just a small, utilitarian dam in a irrigation ditch

  • worked very hard at getting "Waltzing Matilda" out of my head



Share your burdens and joys!

[Poll #600689]
In my last poll I asked about your favorite part of your Church service. Someone commented that they though they could figure out what denomination folks were by their answers. I was skeptical, but I thought I'd give 'em a chance to see. :)

Oh, and someone else wanted to know how those four folks (two Americans, two Kiwi) broke someone else's bones...so 'fess up!

And I confess that I have to agree with [livejournal.com profile] jkgeroo, crayons aren't the only things that smell nice. Markers and paint are right up there. Hmm...maybe Wal*Mart shouldn't have sold me that spray paint...

this poll is cut for dryness )

I expect that this will be my least participated poll. ;)

SWS unite!

To see what kind of a minority I am in...

[Poll #594309]
Hailie
Hailie was brushing her teeth last night, and I fluttered my eyes at her in the mirror. She tried to do it back and then asked, "Holly, can you make my eyes do that??"

I came up behind her when she was sitting at the table and kissed the top of her head. She emitted a startled, "Hey!" I looked at her and said, "What?! I was just kissing you!" She said, "Oh. ok." and turned her little face up to kiss me back. *happy sigh*

A Joke
A blond was sitting at a bar sobbing as if her heart would break. A man came in and sat next to her and felt really bad for her. He asked what was wrong, and she said that she saw on the news that in an accident 12 Brazilians were killed. He was a bit confused, but tried to comfort her anyway. She finally calmed down, and they were talking a bit, and she asked him, Read more... )

Prayer
I apologize for not posting this yesterday, I don't normally work on Fridays so I kept thinking that it was Thursday. :P For those of you who are new, I have a small group of people who desire to pray for each other and you. The poll is only viewable to myself, and in the filtered post those requests/praises that you have asked not to be shared are posted as unspoken requests/praises. I take such a delight in being able to share your burdens and joys by bringing you to my God.

Random Thought
I wonder who invented the match. I'm very happy about it. I'd hate to have to rub sticks together every time I wanted to light a candle.
[Poll #584584]

Edit: I sit here giggling and thinking that this has got to be the best poll I've ever done. As Hailie would say, "And they lived happily ever after and had lots of babies."
Amuse me. ;) What or who do these colors make you think of? How creative can you be with adjectives?

[Poll #582947]

P.S. Only three days until Wallace & Gromit - Curse of the Were-Rabbit premiers! I wonder when it'll come to Fallon.
MMMM! my Topsy Turvy Apple Pie is in the oven!

Weekend!

Ok, so it is for Jessica and me anyway.

*happy sigh* I love sleeping in. Kind of makes up for having to get up Way Too Early two days a week.

Plans for this weekend? None. Just getting some stuff done like:
putting clean sheets on my bed
finishing Hailie's dress
balancing the checkbook
taking a long walk
finishing Pilgrim's Regress
making a Topsy Turvy Apple Pie
Yeah, I'm totally liking the sounds of this weekend.

Do you have Eczema? FreeDermHC is the answer!
"Even prescriptions didn't clear up my eczema like FreeDerm! I was and continue to be amazed at how well this works!"

Ok, I'm feeling happy and pollish, sooooo.....

Edit: in answer to Jessica's question, personness is not a word. But I like to make up words instead of wording a question properly. Actually, that might not have answered Jessica's question after all. What can I say. I'm female.

Ok, so Jessica and I were just talking about this 'IQ Test', and wondering how we could figure out what were all the correct answers. We know you're a pretty smart bunch...what do you think?

Edit: I figure the highest score you can get is 145, as each question seems to have 5 points, and the base line is 60. So all we need is for someone to get that 145...

Edit again: Patrick informed me that the quiz is broken and that you can only get 140 points...*pout*

Hailie

So, I've been asked for Hailie to make another phone post...I may do it this evening and of course I had to make a poll...

[Poll #578367]
The van pulled into the driveway after church today, next to my car. Hailie remarked, "That car looks like someone parked it there because they can't get married."
Thanks, Hailie. :)

So [livejournal.com profile] melyndie made me curious by her reference to a 'native Idahoan'...what makes you a native of a particular place? Is it your birth place? Or just where you've lived the longest? I was born in Idaho, but only lived there a total of about 6 years. I lived in Washington for about 16, Nevada about 4, and Kenya a little less than one. So am I a native of Idaho because I was born there, or Washington because I lived there the longest?

[Poll #577482]
Hello peoples. I like having you around, did you know that? A whole community of people at my fingertips.

I think it's fun to get carded. It's funny to watch the cashiers' faces while they're trying to decide if I'm older than 21 or not.

It's also fun to see peoples' reaction to the size of family we have. Yep.

I think this is my favorite Hailie icon. Which is yours?

And stuff.

Ok, I'll shut up, because I know you want to do this poll so badly.

P.S. With the poem, you don't have to end it at two lines if you don't want to. :)

[Poll #576828]
I dreamed I got rid of a lot of something last night, but I can't remember what it was. In fact I woke up about an hour before my alarm went off, and I remember being relieved because then I could get rid of more of whatever it was. I think I ended up getting rid of 11....what do you think it was?

[Poll #575581]

In other news, it looks as if you can now lists schools in your userinfo. Interesting.

It's a crying shame.

Not really, I just wanted to say that.
[Poll #573720]

And check out how a sweet friend explains for me why I love LJ.

Edit: I've gotten such great answers so far, maybe I'll use them in my bio...*grin*
