-- That sittin on the porch with Myguy; eating
Krunchy Klondike bars is ... delicious in every possible way.
... To grow in grace....
is something I want
That God can use vintage things
to move me.
Like a toy register sent by a friend,
hiding a map, key, shard of china and thimble.
That's it's quite possible to
fall asleep on the back of a motorcycle
if you close your eyes and relax too much.
That to play
That it's okay to be an introvert
and why I need to get alone and be quiet to
That I totally loved listening and learning about
Cathedrals and architecture through a Bring To Mind
podcast with Father Barron.
I learned I really can pull Myguy in a different vehicle into the mechanics shop
with the Nissan ( its a standard)
--and not jerk the chain too much.
Even under pressure-
(Thanks Matco man.)
-- that I love charm bracelets like my Angel Mother did
and the sound of the chinkle they make
helps me to still "see her."
I learned words can lift or tear ya down.
Yeah...sticks n stones can break your bones,
but words can nearly kill me.
I learned eating an extra dessert every other day,
will pack another 5# on me in no time flat,
and that it takes way longer to get them back off.
-- Frozen chocolate chips in ice cream
Drives one of my really old fillings crazy.
I learned Myguy's love language sparks when I run down and
pull his truck up to the house and have the air cooling while he's getting dressed for work.
--That it gets pretty well dark
by 7:30 now.
I learned large copperhead snakes can be quite a surprise when you
take the lid off your water meter box in the dark with a flashlite.
-- That I can lose track of time when painting in my journal.
Even a whole night.
I learned I hate the twang in the Dollar General black olives and I'll never ever switch
I learned I like my hair shorter in the back
with a bump.
And I learned that I'm sort of addicted to certain pens.
Black LePen Permanent marker to art journal
Black Bic z4 roller in the leather writing journal
Orange sharpie highliter to highlite in my bible
Sharpie black fine point to label packages
White gelly roll to art journal on dark paint
India Ink Faber Castelles to shade in Art Journaling
and Faber Castell fine pt journal markers as a close second.
In confession: the stash is growing and I don't share very well.
I learned how to make washi tape too.
The L was a first try...
These are a few things I learned.
How about you?
