Currently I am keeping the following in my thoughts &  prayers:
-----A BIG planned change in our lives.
-----A man who is going to rehab and hoping that he finds his path afterward.
-----I need to be in better physical shape and beat the symptoms of several thyroid problems. I am trying to rid myself of Chronic Fatigue, send Hashimoto's Disease into remission and lose gained weight. That my appointment in a couple of months goes well...and upcoming blood tests.
-----Someone I used to know that committed crime and is now incarcerated. I am hoping that they come forward with any truths that may help victims and that they decide to go down the path of rehabilitation. I think that in this situation it would be great if the victims could somehow see that rehabilitation was occurring.


This post is in no particular order. Prayer/thought requests just go to the top as I hear more about what is going on. If you can think of a way to help these people, PLEASE do so. This post will be second-from-the-top during the midst of an emergency (such as an Amber Alert).

Note: I would not advise linking to this will wind up with a broken link each time I have to change the post-dating to keep this a Vigil at the Top.

At JPUSA. Summer 2011.


This is a post-in-progress. :-)

What I'm watching now as I sort through papers, magazines, etc. #SpringCleaning
Liking the characters somewhat...but really not liking that the hero is in a relationship, staying there while liking someone else and looking down on the intelligence of his current partner. :-( GRUMBLE.

Willy Nilly Friday Five

Around Roanoke

This rose bush has at least 27 open flowers. :-)

A coffee cup that I won as part of a gift package at a friend's birthday party recently. I currently use it to drink my Celestial Seasoning Tension Tamer Tea...I love the scent and soothing of the peppermint. I knew that I would likely win the party game involving finding small safety pins in a bowl of rice...I just called on my calmness with which a mother handles things like changing diapers in an unexpected space (hope that makes sense).

The morning glories have started blooming. :-)

Excellent for slow-cooking drumsticks. This sauce is sold at our local Walmart.

A bouquet of roses and a peony from Husband. The last I counted, this particular rose bush had at least 84 open flowers!
