Sitting in my favorite chair, feeling the weakness of post-flu recovery, I have reached the point of total boredom. I do not like to sit around.  (Sometimes we are forced into rest, when we haven't been obedient to the Sabbath Rest our Father calls us to.) So in my lethargy, I have decided to list some of the things I love.I think I will start with "w".  I would love to hear back from you, the things you love.

  1. Walks with my grandchildren.
  2. Watching the stars form the top of a mountain.
  3. Weeping willows.
  4. Wisteria in full bloom.
  5. Wonders of fresh-fallen snow.
  6. Willing hearts that serve.
  7. Wakening to the smell of fresh hot coffee, brought to me in bed by Jackie boy.
  8. Whispers of wind through the trees.
  9. Whiskers on kittens ( I couldn't resist:))
  10. Warbles of birds in the early morn.
  11. Wide open spaces of West Texas and Montana!
  12. Wacky friends who make me laugh.
  13. Warm chocolate chip cookies. Yumm!
  14. Western boots.
  15. Western hospitality!
  16. Wandering aimlessly with camera in hand, looking for that perfect shot.
  17. Waterfalls, enormous or small trickles.
  18. Woven tapestries
  19. Welcoming hugs.
  20. Wood-burning fireplaces.

new computer blues

I recently purchased a new laptop that is amazingly fast has lots of memory and fabulous camera and speakers. It is light weight so when we fly I will not be struggling to carry it. So what am I griping about?  I have to learn once again how to use a new operating system.  No longer using windows xp now using windows 7.  Now I realize that my 8-year old grandson will figure it out in 24 hours or less! This only adds to my frustration! I never felt stupid before. I used to even think I was kind of smart.  But I am humbled beyond words! 

Thank You , Lord for sending me a friend who is computer savy!! I think I may have had my head explode if You hadn't!
Thank you, Billy for your generous heart and compassion for this grammabanana!
