This weekend the family and I (well, I mostly watched) did a major overhaul of our bedroom, trying to make the arrangement and traffic patterns easier and less conducive to the kind of mishap from which I am still recovering. I'm delighted with the results and enjoying a more open feel. It really was a family effort including sons-in-law and grandchildren. They are TERRIFIC!
So this week we'll get to see the media and the Democrats temporarily shift their fawning and their "thrill up the leg" from The One to the woman he has nominated to continue our country's slouching toward Gomorrah on the Supreme Court. I don't suppose the outcome is in doubt...but I do hope that before finally being seated she will be exposed for the dangerous judicial activist she is and will continue to be.
Annie's BBQ brisket sandwiches and roasted potatoes made for a DELICIOUS Sunday dinner!
I'm sure it says something...though I haven't figured out just what...that when I hear the name of a current television show, there's only about a 20% likelihood that I've even heard of it, let alone seen it. Maybe I'm old? I've lost interest? There are more shows now so you can't possibly have heard of as many of them as before?
Is Leon Panetta for real? Does no one have the courage to tell the man (or his boss) that he is so far out of his league as to engender little other than laughter? Can we please bring back the grownups?
One of the things I miss during the summer is a nice oil/kerosene lamp. During the summer I can't stand the thought of one more heat-producing element, but I do miss that comforting glow.
I'm currently reading John Piper's The Pleasures of God: Meditations on God's Delight in Being God. One of those books you hope will never be over.
And as my love for books continues to increase even as my available shelf space continues to decrease, I'm again thinking about a Kindle. I know, I'm hopeless. I think if every single book I wanted to read were available on audio, I might not consider it, and yet there are times when holding a book is preferable to sitting or standing with earbuds in your ears. So I'm just sayin'...
I can't tell you what fun it is to have all the children and grandchildren in town. All have season passes to Six Flags and are enjoying frequent outings over there, despite the heat. The little girls are having sleepovers and the boys are having water gun fights and the teenagers/young adults are having movie and game nights and just generally enjoying one another. This is the life...
Hope you have a great week and stay COOL!
