  • Never allow yourself to complain about anything — not even the weather.
  • Never picture yourself in any other circumstance or someplace else.
  • Never compare your lot with another’s.
  • Never allow yourself to wish this or that had been otherwise.
  • Never dwell on tomorrow — remember that tomorrow is God’s, not ours.

    I was hungry tonight. I had coffee in the morning, forgot breakfast. Started making applesauce, then made apple pancakes and ate one with applesauce and whip cream. Then had some Starbucks on my way to San Jose. I arrived dizzy with low blood sugar. There were delicious apricot, ginger sausage and potato and onions.  Mmmm…. That seemed to do the trick. I’m fine now.

    Fall Coasters from Patchwork Pottery


    I was checking some of my favorite blogs while waiting for Spybot and I found a great idea for coasters or maybe even potholders.

    God is Good!

    Monday was nice and I stayed home almost all day except to get printer ink in the morning and maybe Walmart. Tuesday, however, was not so fun. I gathered up all my things to meet with three students during the day and headed for the car. Hmm… the tires look a little too low to be driving in the mountains.  Hmm.. this one doesn’t sound so good. But msh gets dressed and checks it out and says take the blue car. The other has a nail in the tire. Well, I’m out in the hills, driving up hill when I have this feeling that the car is going slower and the car is trying harder. I think it felt more like it was in neutral ready to go backwards. I couldn’t find the emergency flasher. Oh, no!! There aren’t lots of cars out there in the morning so I didn’t worry to much about being hit. I quickly found a spot to pull over and located the flashers. Then I checked my cell phone. I knew it, no bars. I was not going to make this appointment. My knowledge of car problems is not very extensive since our Hondas rarely have issues so I wasn’t sure if I should drive it or if that would damage anything. After reviewing the options I decided that it was mostly downhill so I would try and make it to phone service. Hallelujah! Several phone calls later I was on the road heading for the Honda dealer. I am not going to bore you with the rest of the day. Today the car is fixed and mine has nice new tires thanks to James and James my wonderful son and son in law.

    These kind of stories are not really allowed on this page but I didn’t have time to make anything this week……..

    Oh, my feet need a rest!

    Let’s see. Today I watched the sweet grandchildren, visited with a friend (who brought me a pretty wool sweater to shrink), made a batch of hummus, a caramel apple cake, and 4 loaves of six grain bread. It would have been seven grain but I couldn’t get soft wheat to grind anywhere (around here). Then I made a bunch of salsa with the tomatoes from the garden.

    Monday is Gone

    I got started working by after lunch. I had to help take the car to get fixed and get a rental for Rob. Then we ran a couple quick errands. Time flies!! Then I took 3 long phone calls, worked on orders, etc. And researched online curriculum resources. And checked facebook. The day is gone. It is already tomorrow.
