Thoughts on Huddling

Sunday, February 08, 2009

It would be so easy to just log on to my Spark Teams and mindlessly press one of the buttons for a canned huddle thought. I admit that I do this some days when time is more precious than the essence but usually, I try to think of a truly inspiring thought for the day. It usually isn't original with me but something I have come across in my lifetime, perhaps a quote from Norman Vincent Peale or W. Clement Stone. In any event, in posting this quote to each of my seven teams, I am forced to concentrate on the thought each time, implanting it on my subconscious and forcing it into my day.

This is a day the Lord has made, Let us rejoice and be glad in it!

  


Wonderful Springtime

Saturday, February 07, 2009

The weatherman was right so far. It's supposed toi be in the mid to high 60's for the next week. Today is bright and clear and looks to be headed that way! It's nice to be able to walk outside in just shirt sleeves or a light sweater. The cold air is brisk and invigorating but small doses are necessary. Today will be beautiful because I have decided it will be.

  


Winter is Over.....Again!

Friday, February 06, 2009

Well it appears that our latest winter is just about over. All week the early morning temperatures in the teens or low twenties. Up to thirty this morning but highs will be in the mid sixties for the next week. The best part of Atlanta's weather is that winter never lasts more than a couple of days. People up north brag about having four seasons a year. In Hotlanta, we often have four seasons a month or sometimes even more often. It keeps the winter doldrums and cabin fever from setting in and the great outdoors is there for an exploratory walk.

  


Thursday's Thoughts

Thursday, February 05, 2009

We tried a new restaurant last night. We had been driving by it daily on the way to and from work and decided to give it a try. It was a seafood restaurant and I decided to try the shrimp lovers' feast. I like shrimp because it is almost a free food, calorie wise as long as it isn't fried. 6 fried shrimp. 6 fried shrimp 454 calories. 12 boiled or broiled shrimp 65 calories. Stay away from the fried ones and you can almost eat until you burst without coming close to busting the day's calorie allocation. Also, I like shrimp.

  


Back in the Saddle

Wednesday, February 04, 2009

I returned to the office after a two day absence in court this week. My desk is under here somewhere and I am confident I will find it by mid afternoon. I had more telephone calls the last two days that I did last week. i think people just know when I am gone and wait til then to call. That way they can say they called but the didn't have to talk to me and get the bad news. Well Surprise surprise surprise, I'm going to call all of them back today!
