I am going to be just slightly swamped for the next couple of days so I will sadly have to deprive you of yet another one of my infamous long and ramblin’ posts.
However. So as not to drop a dollop of disappointment into the hearts of any of my faithful, daily stopper by-ers, I do have a couple of assignments to keep you occupied.
1. Go to googlemaps.com
2. Select “get directions.”
3. In the “from” box, type Japan
4. In the “to ” box, type China.
5. Select “get directions” again.
5. Scroll down to item #43.
6. Decide whether or not that particular piece of instruction is a particularly good idea.
7. Write a 3,000-word paper backing up your opinion. (just kidding)
1. Look at the following pictures taken during Sarah’s ongoing, never ending room re-do.
2. Try to decide if the redecorating of her room will ever be finished and, if so, when might you get a peek at the final product. (Answer: very soon)
Read--and ponder for a while--this piece written by a (believe it or not) 14-year old boy.
It was spring . . . but it was summer I wanted,
the warm days, and the great outdoors.
It was summer, but it was fall I wanted,
the colorful leaves, and the cool, dry air.
It was fall, but it was winter I wanted,
the beautiful snow, and the holiday season.
It was winter, but it was spring I wanted,
the warmth and the blossoming of nature.
I was a child, but it was adulthood I wanted,
the freedom, and the respect.
I was 20, but it was 30 I wanted,
to be mature and sophisticated.
I was middle-aged, but it was 20 I wanted,
the youth, and the free spirit.
I was retired, but it was middle age I wanted,
the presence of mind, without limitations.
My live was over. But I never got what I wanted.
Enjoy living today in the present tense!
