Random Thought Wednesday

Here is a frightening peek into my brain:


  • A shower at night always helps me sleep better (HOT in the winter and cool in the summer).
  • Those Croc shoes and their knock-offs that have become so popular (at least around here) remind me of the jelly shoe fad of my early years...and I don't mean that in a positive way! :-p
  • I switched from regular milk to soymilk years ago. It just agrees better with my system.
  • I almost always have (high-fiber!) cereal for breakfast, and I love, but rarely am willing to pay for, fresh blueberries on it. {BTW, I've had blueberries every morning this week! YUM! :-)}
  • I am very relieved to remember that God is in control when I consider our current presidential race, any U.S. political scene, or our status in the international realm.
  • Sometimes I agonize when I hear of the pain or trouble of others--known or unknown. At times, I have to limit how far I open my heart to news or contemplation, or I would just cry all the time. I have often marveled at God's capacity to engage the pain of billions of people. I can barely handle that to which I must be exposed. He certainly is so far greater than we.
  • I haven't been able to go to the gym for weeks now due to some health problems, and I am so missing it! THIS is a God-thing, as I have never liked 'purposeless' exercise before. (By purposeless, I mean, not done in the process of accomplishing something. I loved exercising when it meant hiking through Israel or riding on horseback or helping someone move. But just-because-I-should walking on a treadmill? Ugh!)
  • I always open public restroom doors with a papertowel. Do you know how many people don't wash their hands?! Ick!

Okay, it's now Thursday, so I'm just gonna post this puppy as is....

Hope your Wednesday went more smoothly than mine did! :-D

Blessings!

I'm so with you on the restroom door thing! I generally try to avoid them at all cost :) Love the list!

Last summer, I bought & froze 20 pints of blueberries! I love them too! When I thaw them, they're pretty much like fresh blueberries and great on cereal. The other day I was making blueberry muffins from a mix, and I looked at those tiny little pellets, and just couldn't put them in! So, I just tossed in some from my frozen stash, and they were wonderful. Yum.... :)

Have a good weekend!

Suz: TWENTY-pints! Wowser! You know, I've thought about doing that. I'm glad to hear someone say it worked well. Come June, there's a "pick-your-own" place nearby; perhaps I'll stock up there. Thanks! -J

I am so suprised that you are blogging everyday. I am so behind. I love blueberries also. Tyler calls them choo choo's and will eat them even though he does not care for much fruit. Try some frozen blueberries, they are much cheaper and just as healthy.

I can not go back to see what else you typed.
