...because sometimes titles are far from me.
I present you with this picture of the sister and I after we had returned home from a thanksgiving supper with friends. We were supposed to dress up. And yes, it's from all the way back in November of 2014. I'm on top of this people! Can't you see?? I was told by several sources that I looked like some kind of old fashioned, country preachers wife... and Rhoda looked like a business woman with some kind of style!
Two weeks ago from this very day, I was going to Iowa with Rhoda to see my other sister and brother and sister-in-law. It was grand! We painted the one sisters house and listened to all sorts of happy music, ate cheesecake, had breakfast of pancakes w/ bananas and cream, and went to my favorite thrift store and found bright, happy clothes for 50-80% off! This is precisely why thrift stores are my favorite. :)
Fast forward to present day. I am in the midst of school and work and planning to move which means packing and sorting and adjustments and finding a new job and transferring to a new college.... Sometimes it feels like a bunch of craziness and it seems like suddenly, everything is happening really fast, and very soon I will no longer be surrounded by the familiar. Instead, I will be surrounded by the unfamiliar and people that I don't know, but I'm honestly excited about the fact that I will be meeting new people and stumbling upon new opportunities and I can't wait to see what God will bring to my life through all of this.
My boss takes amazing pictures! I stole this one from her Facebook -and she doesn't know it yet- because she lets me do things like that and I had to work while most were celebrating our Freedom in some way or another...hence I missed the fireworks. Yesterday didn't seem like the 4th to me. Most times there is a picnic with friends, but this day I was writing an essay in response to an article on the effects of American parenting compared to that of other cultures from South Korea, Sweden, Finland, and China, to name a few... and then I had to work in the afternoon and evening. When my sister and I were on our way home from work around 10:45 we had to take a different route home because there had obviously been an accident or something blocking our road, but all was well 'cause we went past a trailer park where Fireworks were happening.. so Yay! We still saw some! :)
This is it for now friends. More will come another day when I get around to writing the things I have been thinking. Please enjoy what remains of the summer and eat lots of watermelon and roast marshmallows and eat smores...and go swimming and all that good stuff...
'till next time....
