Not to worry, this is an old picture! It's August and I'll be working on my goal list tomorrow. But one new thing this month will be a decluttering challenge that a df is doing on her blog. The goal is to declutter one item a day for the month a... Read more

I got a little bit of work done on the living room this morning before driving out to WN to the customs office. DMom had forgotten to write "gift" on my birthday present so I had to go open it and show them that it didn't contain diamonds or dru... Read more

I got kind of bogged down in the living room today - went into the city to do some errands and got back later than planned. Now feeling a bit overwhelmed and bedtime is coming up soon. I did make a mad dash to the home store and got BOXES. I eve... Read more

Today I got kind of bogged down in the kitchen. The visual results of my work aren't as much as in the other two rooms, but there's definitely progress been made and a couple of badly neglected spots are looking good now. I also filled half of a... Read more

I had a change of plans. Knowing that I only had the morning to work on the apartment (music lessons this afternoon), I decided to trade out the entry hall for the living room. I'll work on the LR on Friday when I have more or less the whole day... Read more

I don't know what Garfield has against Mondays :) Today was a good, productive day. I pretty much rid my bedroom from clutter, did a load of wash, taught a piano lesson, took a walk, stayed within my ranges. But best of all, my routines and good... Read more

Today is day 1 of my stay-at-home vacation. Usually my vacations are traveling ones - I can't remember when I just stayed home to enjoy my little pad. And it's not very enjoyable at the moment after literally months of neglect. I have a mile-lon... Read more

I took the midterm in my Old Testament survey distance-learning course on Monday and did pretty well. I know I aced the map test where we had to memorize a long list of place names and be able to enter them on a blank map of Israel. And I think ... Read more

Happy Birthday to me! I had plans to sleep late, but a friend called me early to wish me a happy day, and that was a good start. I have no big plans today but it is a Saturday and a day "off" with lovely weather, so I plan to enjoy it. Other tha... Read more

The German soccer team lost in the finals against an excellent Spanish team, and, even though I know it's just a game, I feel disappointed for them. The captain of the team has yet to win a big international title, even though he has come close ... Read more

I've been limiting my online and Spark time lately and just noticed that I haven't blogged in two weeks. So I'll do a quick entry on my way over to the forum for my Old Testament course. I have to submit a short essay as part of my second progre... Read more

I survived! On the way to the race, a huge thunderstorm complete with thunder and lightning came up and I was beginning to think that the race would be cancelled. But by the time I got to the start, it had cleared up - and the temperature had dr... Read more

I'm about to get in the car and drive down to Stuttgart for the 7K race. Prayers appreciated! I'm feeling pretty good, although my left ankle has been bothering me some (bursitis?) Pray that I won't try to be a hero if it gives me trouble! ... Read more

A friend and I drove down to the area where the run is going to be next Saturday evening. There are so many trails that it was impossible to determine what course the organizers are planning for the 7K race, but we had a good 50-minute run. It w... Read more
