“When anybody asks, 'What are you writing about now?' if I try to reply, the book-in-the-works sounds so idiotic to me that I think, 'Why am I trying to write that puerile junk?' So now I give up; if I could talk about it, I wouldn't have to write it."
- Madeleine L'Engle, A Circle of Quiet


Bloggers Tour of Homes

Friday, July 28, 2006

Welcome to my little home in the 'hood! It's nothing fancy, but it's a cozy little place and it keeps us safe and warm. It's also what's allowing us to build our next home. (Equity is our friend!)

So c'mon in! The tour will be a little short, because I have to leave for work in about 20 minutes and the puppy will still need to go out, but feel free to linger as long as you want! If you want to see more homes on the tour, go see BooMama. There's a list of participants at the end of her post today.

First stop - my front door.

Blogging Central

Main Living Area? These days it's here, with Raz running around us.

For the time being, my kitchen has become Puppy Central.

One of the cutest spots in my house these days.

There it is. Short and sweet. And I gotta run! Thanks for stopping by and taking the tour! Be sure to go visit the other homes on the tour as well!


Things I've Learned From My Puppy - Part 1

Friday, July 21, 2006

She's been home for almost 2 weeks now and she's completely taken over our lives. I never realized how little I knew about puppies until now. Raz and I, we're learning together – myself, about how to love and raise a puppy – Raz, about how to live with and be loved by people.

There's nothing quite so cute as a puppy in the garden.
There's also nothing quite so difficult as getting the puppy out of the garden.


Question On My Mind

Why do they call it the "dog days of summer", when it's too hot for even the dog to want to go outside?


Bloggers' Tour of Homes

Saturday, July 15, 2006

Tour of HomesI came across this when visiting Jeana today. BooMama is putting on a Tour of Homes for all of us bloggers. Sounds like fun, huh?

She's giving us 2 weeks to come up with our pics. Seems do-able enough, and and a "gimme" post too! With the way I've been going here, I could use some of those!

no sleep...





Tuesday, July 04, 2006

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord:
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword:
His truth is marching on.

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on
I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps,
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;
I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps:
His day is marching on.
I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnished rows of steel:
"As ye deal with my condemners, so with you my grace shall deal;
Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with His heel,
Since God is marching on."
He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;
He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat:
Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet!
Our God is marching on.
In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me:
As He died to make men holy, let us live to make men free,
While God is marching on.
He is coming like the glory of the morning on the wave,
He is wisdom to the mighty, He is succour to the brave,
So the world shall be His footstool, and the soul of Time His slave,
Our God is marching on.
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
His truth is marching on
