Put Another Pot of Coffee On: Its a Random Post

The sky is dark today, and I woke up with a headache.

And yet my heart is light.

This day calls for a second pot of java.

I have nothing on today's agenda except school, laundry,  and calling my "little" brother.

Yesterday was his birthday. I thought of him all day, but had not one-second to harass call him. So I am going to do that today and tell him I love him.

Have you noticed my excessive use of the strike-through? Blogger has (finally!) added this fabulous, fun feature. In the past, when I wanted to strike through, I would take the words I wanted to cross out and type them into a Word document, and then cross the word out. Then I would copy and paste the whole thing back into the blog template.

A process that wasn't always worth the effort. Now I can strike through as much as I want.

I am so excited because I ordered these today. I cannot wait to get my hands on them.  I am envisioning that hot cocoa cup in blue with "LVCG" embroidered on the front. With felt coffee in it, of course.

The little felt deer in that kit reminds me...

Two mornings ago these sweet little fawns came to our yard to play.

One was just tiny, no taller than a german shepherd and the other was slightly bigger, but still dappled in spots.

I was able to ever-so-slowly open the storm door to the front of the house and snap a few pics before a lawn mower was started and they ran off to the woods.

Let's see...what else can I tell you?


Its raining now.

I do hope to get through my Google Reader today. I am REALLY behind on my blog reading. I just checked and as of 10:15 a.m. I have 396 posts to read. Not too bad. Really. Right?

OH! and MOST importantly!!!

Save the date! I am organizing a Meet and Greet for local (and those who are nearly local!) bloggers on Saturday, October 24, 2009. I am still working on where we will meet, but there was enough interest for that date and I want to proceed! I will post within a week or two with more information.

OK, that wraps up the random portion of todays post.

Talk to me: Tell me something random from your little corner of the world.

My random thought of the day - does it mean you really ARE old when you publicaly reveal that, "Yes, I do have gray hair that I am deliberately covering up."?

oo totally a 2nd pot of coffee kind of day! Its really cool here today as well. The 24th huh.. well if depending on where it is I might be able to make it :-)!!

hmm something random.. I took Sammy to a playground really close to our house. While we were there a VDOT truck parked and a van. Some guys with "security" written on their back holding guns got out and they let the inmates out of the back of the van all changed together. I guess they were going to pick up trash or something. So we left.. didn't feel quite so secure there :-P I live in a small town w/ 1 stop light so not the typical day :-P

Lurved your random and the kits, Chica! Darling.

As are the deer. Darling, I mean.

Hope you enjoy your 2nd pot kind of day.

Something random from my neck of the woods? I have worship team rehearsal tonight, and I always look forward to that.

I don't have much to say. I'm simply procrastinating. Let's see ... laundry on my bed waits to be folded; the washer and dryer are both full and my kiddos simply want to go outside and play in the just-before-rain chill. I'm tired. Also, I'm tired of having to buy new shoes every month. My kids are growing too fast!

Love the deer.

I have never figured out how to strike through my words - not even with blogger. I am so slow :)

Answer for Blue Skies.. No. ;)

Random thought for the day..

I went took my son to the chiropractor yesterday and today..I also took my daughter to the orthodontist today. I got to chat with more of my fellow church members in the past two days than I have in the past month at church. Evidently, 1/2 of the congregation has back problems and the other 1/2 are paying for braces. :D

Oct. 24th..on my calendar!

I made lunch for my five best friends today. Winter squash and sage sausage chili and candied walnut, pear and goat cheese salad. i wanted them to feel special and cared for. just what they do for me. and they did. it was a fun afternoon. it's super chilly here in chicagoland, so i think an after-dinner coffee with pumpkin spice cream is in my future!

I love seeing deer run behind my house, too! A random thought..... I had accupuncture in my jaws today. :)
