A + A Friday!

  • Walking normally in the house until you come to floors that have just been mopped but you forgot until your feet get wet, so you throw a panicked Silly Walk and try to get to the safe, dry side.
  • Waiting to rinse an apple in cold water while your sister finishes washing dishes.  You put your finger
    under the hot water and say, "Ah! That's wet!" Except you meant to say it was HOT. . .
  • Vacuuming with a carpet cleaner that sounds as if it might explode at any moment.  (Yeah, our vacuum is messed up and makes this loud, awful sound while running over the carpets.)
  • Medieval Lowe's commercial!  This could probably go in the Awesome section, too.  :]
  • Realizing you really like yodeling.  O_o
  • Stepping into a hole (covered by leaves) nearly three times before finally getting your balance.
  • Having bits of paint in your hair, making it look like you're graying before your time.
  • Leaning against the kitchen counter listening in to a conversation, then randomly slipping in your socks and making a scene before your aunt and uncle, who saw the whole thing.

  • Finished one of the InScribed Collection's books, Living So That by Wendy Blight.  Really good.  You can read my review here.
  • A poem I entered into a contest has made it to the semi-finals!!! They sent me an envelope in the mail also stating that my poem has been selected for publication in a multi-volume series called Across the Lands.  I'm so excited!  (In all actuality, about 60-70% of entries make it to the semi-finals, so this could be the farthest I get, but still. . . It's exciting!  I had to call nearly everybody in my immediate family.) 
  • Applied for a part-time position at a candy store this past Monday.  :D  Still haven't heard from them,
    but hoping.
  • Walker, Texas Ranger -- Seasons 2 & 3, from Walmart.  :]
  • A rainbow around the sun, also known as a sun-halo.  The moon has them too.  
  • Listening to an oldie country station with classic cowboy singers like Rex Allen, Roger Miller, and Marty Robbins. 
  • Trying out new recipes and getting "Mmm"s from the family.
  • This quote:  "Why do bad things happen to good people?  That only happened once, and He volunteered." (R.C. Sproul, Jr.)

Sun-halo pic is not mine--didn't have my camera, but it looks exactly like the halo we saw earlier today.

To each is given a bag of tools,
A shapeless mass, and a book of rules,
And each must make, ere life is flown,
A stumbling block or a stepping stone.
