Productive Day
Saturday, July 20, 2013      5 comments

Last night's thunderstorm helped to cool and clear the air. I got on my bike and did 30 minutes before going down for Bible and Breakfast. Around 11:30 took a run to the post office and the bank. Later I sat on the front porch - no longer so hot... Read more

I work in an old school building, and they get pretty hot in the summer time. Because of this, the district has provided bottled water for the students, to make sure they stay hydrated. And our principal has even provided big thermos jugs of col... Read more
So Much to Thank Him For
Wednesday, July 17, 2013      8 comments

Okay, so it's not grammatically correct - and I strive for good grammar, especially after having homeschooled two of my kids. "So much for which to thank Him." Anyway, we've had this heat wave. I could have been home , laid up after hip surger... Read more

While going through my Spark emails, I found this exercise which I used to do when it was a bit easier to get up and down off the floor.

Best Reaction Ever

The kids loved their shiny creations. I got pictures of them, and took little videos. But the BEST was my grandson. He is one who feels things very strongly anyway - which has made him the brunt of teasing and bullying at school. But his tend... Read more

Yesterday was cooler, which definitely helps my level of patience, so one by one I let the kids paint their projects. Three of them had one penguin; my grandson also had a "Bumblebee car", and one of the girls made another penguin and a Sealyham... Read more

The Truth About Nutrition Here is the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting medical studies. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than do the Br... Read more
Work on a Day Off
Thursday, July 04, 2013      3 comments

Since I took on the job at summer school, I have to take advantage of what little time remains to work in the clay. So last night I glazed and fired what was in the kiln from before, and today I am underglazing. It's kinda damp out, so I'm deali... Read more

Earning My Keep

I am a Level III certified Teacher Assistant (TA) - not a teacher (although I have had experience teaching art and Spanish in private schools). During the first semester of the 2012-2013 school year, I was assigned to a computer lab for Online C... Read more

So yesterday I did some underglazing, and today I did more, and as I write, the first load is in the kiln. And I also was able to get on the bike for a half hour. And the evening is early. I was going to take Glitterfairy77 to church tonight ... Read more
Bad News, Good News.

First the bad news, 'cause I like to end on a positive note. At the meeting at school I learned that, rather than the 4 hours I thought I'd be working daily, it's SIX hours, from 8 to 2. This cuts into clay time. In fact, it's just an hour les... Read more

Many thanks to SparkBuddy DIANEMAR for her frequent devotional postings on the team Girls of God. Today's had to do with Jesus as the Bread of Life, and it reminded me of a friend of mine in Iquitos, Peru. I could have just posted this to our Ge... Read more
A Little Outreach

I was on Facebook this morning when my student-friend, the lad who occasionally comes to church with me, came on and greeted me. Since we haven't seen much of each other since exams started, I asked if he wanted to come and hang out. I did warn ... Read more
Special of the Day

I planned to focus on making what I term "Mostly Woodsy" (mainly North American mammals) but because foxes were first on my mental "to do" list, and people who like foxes also often like Pembroke Corgis, and I KNEW I was low on THOSE (though I h... Read more
