Beyond the Mask: A Movie

Just a movie I want to see...

Finished Last Heritage Crochet Blankie

Only have to wash it. Now each of my children has one thread dress, a pair of baby booties, one hat, one unstuffed cloth bear, one star blankie.

He Set Out to Buy a Vacuum...

He came home with a new TV stand. 

And a TV, large TV. 

And spent half the night putting everything together, and removing the old stuff. I had to place my delicate sea shells in the dining room hutch. Nothing broke.

He also came home with the Back to the Future triology, "to break in the new TV" and because, "it's the year 2015!!!"

And yes, Eddie bought a vacuum cleaner. A weird vacuum cleaner that travels on its own about the house, vacuuming by itself. Well well well...


We're now watching the Super Bowl. I like watching the commercials and Eddie makes his living mostly from recording audio for commercials. But our local NBC is transmitting local commercials instead of the Super Bowl ones. Boring. Botheration.

Fearless Boss sent a list of 13 patients and needs their prelims. Well, I can't say 'no' or else I'll be looking for another client very very soon. At least Alex came over and fixed the screen settings on the new TV, which Eddie said he needed to watch the Super Bowl.

He looked so angelic I pretended that I believed his pretending. And then he pretended that my pretending wasn't because he was pretending, so I pretended to believe that, too.

It's That Time of Year Again

...when I take out my slipper socks because the temperature has dipped down enough for them. What temp? Yahoo says it's 78ºF here in my town, and I believe it. I've got my socks, long jeans, short sleeves, but with a crocheted shawl over my shoulders, because it's chilly enough for it. And here are the socks!

If you're into celebrating the new year, then Happy 2015!

What happened to The Bill of Rights? (An American Minute)

American Minute with Bill Federer
What happened to The Bill of Rights? -
"...the creature, Frankenstein-like, is determined to destroy the creators."- Pres. Eisenhower

"The National Government was itself the creature of the States...

Yet today it is often made to appear that the creature, Frankenstein-like, is determined to destroy the creators."

-President Dwight Eisenhower, Governors' Conference, June 24, 1957

The original thirteen States were afraid that the new Federal Government they just created might become too powerful, as King George's government had been.

Mercy Otis Warren wrote in Observations on the new Constitution, and on the Federal and State Conventions, 1788:

"The origin of all power is in the people, and they have an incontestable right to check the creatures of their own creation."

Crochet Sighting?

Eddie was watching Men in Black 3. I don't watch creepy movies, but there's a crochet radar in my brain that picked this up.
It's crochet, isn't it?

The Viet Nam Memorial (American Minute with Bill Federer)

American Minute with Bill Federer


  The Vietnam War Memorial was dedicated NOVEMBER 13, 1982, honoring 58,000 American troops who died.

U.S. forces inflicted over a million enemy fatalities, yet involvement by politicians thwarted victory.

Today, well, some days are like that. Instead of fresh air coming through my windows, there's a diesel smell, and that of gasoline from some neighbor across the creek using a pressure washer. Plus I think someone dumped something into the creek, up stream, that is.

Today, instead of just doing the usual proofreading, I'm having to look up information about elder abuse, neglect, bereavement counseling, etc., which saddens me, the amount of sadness in the world. I'm not one of those people who go around sing-songing that Jesus will take away all your troubles. He won't. I am resting in that He said that in this world we would have affliction, but to be trusting in Him because HE has overcome the world (John 16:33). Besides, the world and all its cares won't last forever, and I certainly won't. In the meantime, serving the Lord Jesus Christ in this place with so much going on can be overwhelming if I'm not focused on "the things of above."

It's starting to rain now, so I'll stop for lunch before I burn it yet again. By the way, that's a picture of my backyard. The mango tree had a fit and decided to grow new leaves! happy

Today, besides all of the above, the headache I've had for the past month or so isn't so bad, and I smell my lunch burning.

Tom Coburn's 'Wastebook' Highlights $25B in Wacky Spending

"As you glance at each of the entries presented in this report, place your personal political persuasion aside and ask yourself: Do each of these represent a real national priority that should be spared from budget cuts or are these excesses that should have been eliminated in order to spare deeper cuts to those services and missions that should be performed by the federal ​ ​ government?

"When it comes to spending your money, those in Washington tend to see no waste, speak no waste, and cut no waste." 

(A Shame. A Crying Shame.)
