Musing on Things Today

First of all, my little cherubs, I want to show you some darling night lights I got from a friend in my group, Bertie, who has some of the loveliest things in her boutique and wonderful prices also. Go give her some business!!

This one was supposed to go in the guest bath but the plug is too close to the wall so I have to either change the wall plug or put it in the kitchen. Well, hubs loved it and said he didn't particularly want to change the plug so here it is.

This one is in the living room. Isn't it gorgeous??? Enlarge the photo to look at it.

Here are the chairs finished - primed and painted. They'll be even cuter when I get the decals on them.

Today was one of those days I was just thinking while doing chores. The concrete curbing guys called and asked if they could come since they cancelled yesterday. Of course, I agreed. I just wanna get it over with, chicks! Then on to the minor remodeling of the pass-through wall.

Then I had a malfunction in my external hard drive. Could things go worse? I was really afraid to ask! I called the HD people and they told me to call Apple since it sounded like their expertise. Well, isn't that special?!?!?! You make the HD why can't you tell me?? And I'm pretty computer savvy. But I called Apple, who have the absolutely friendliest, most knowledgeable and patient support team ever on the face of this earth. I've called Apple through the years many, many times and only once was I ever charged!! I can "sweet talk" just about anyone but these guys and gals are terrific!

So I eventually had to erase my external HD and back up again. No problem but it takes several hours to do it when you erase it. So I'm patiently sitting here preparing my next post, which I'll be putting on thursday even though I'm drafting it on wednesday.

Sooooo some thought and musings...............

I always say, "I have to do dishes" but do I really do them?? Nuuuuuuu, I toss them into a dishwasher, add soap and voilà they're washed.

I say, "I have to wash clothes", but I pop them into my washer, add soap and voilà it does the job for me.

I say, "I have to wash the car", but I take it to the car wash and let the machine do it for me. Voilà - clean car.

I say many things during a day or week that doesn't actually involve much work! Then I think of our ancestors who had NONE of the conveniences we have today. How in the world did they do it? I'm so grateful for being born in this meridian of time with all the things that make my life so much easier and more enjoyable. Think about it.

Also, I want to talk about "tithing" if you're a church goer. I am an active member of my church. I pay 10% of every single dollar we get in this home. I cannot tell you the blessings we get from that. Blessings are predicated on your faithfulness to a particular principle. I have a testimony of tithing that you would NOT believe. Money has simply flowed into our lives because of it. I'm definitely not perfect in everything but I'm exceptional in some things! I give my tithing to the Lord and He blesses me beyond measure! I could tell you of the blessings we've received but I'll wait for another post to let you know and I think you'll be astounded. It boggles my mind sometimes how I can be so blessed. Another time, sweet blogging chicks!! Sometimes I'm serious and this is one of those times. ;-)


  1. You are so right about tithing Connie. It is so often given back , and multiplied too.

  2. Good Morning Connie...

    What awesome night lights - I'm gonna check 'em out!!

    Tom and I tithe 10% on every $ coming into our house, as well...and we've been blessed beyond measure, also!


  3. Hi Connie, those are the sweetiest little lights. can't wait to hear more of your tithing story.

  4. CONNIE ~

  5. Hi Connie, I know what you mean exactly about the tithing. Love the chairs and that cushion makes it so beachy. Lovely post I can't wait to see the finish of the concrete project. Friend, stop by my place there's something for you. Deb
