And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to relaxing, tomorrow my plans include going out somewhere so I don't have to watch the AFL Grandfinal and hear my dad and brother yelling at the TV because they think the umpires made a bad decision and Sunday, I want to do some normal Sunday stuff!

You'll Get Your Quilt

Sunday after church, a mom asked her very young daughter
what the lesson was about. The daughter answered, "Don't be
scared; you'll get your quilt."

Needless to say, the mom was perplexed.

Later in the day, the pastor stopped by for tea and the mom
asked him what that morning's Sunday school lesson was

He said, "Be not afraid; thy comforter is coming."

At Peace in the Playpen

Mary was almost crazy with her three young kids. She
complained to her best friend Judy, "They're driving me
nuts! They give me no rest! I'm half way to the funny farm!"

"What you need," said Judy, "is a playpen."

So Mary bought a playpen. A few days later, Judy called to
ask how things were going.

"Superb! I can't believe it," Mary said. "I get in that pen
with a good book and a chocolate bar, and the kids don't
bother me for hours!"

My sister's cat, Rosie, does this to us all the time. She's not as small, but just as cute.

FarmTown on Facebook

FarmTown on Facebook is something I've really got into lately. For those of you who don't know what it is, it's a game where you plow land, plant crops and harvest them. There are farm animals and trees and all manner of decorations, including flowers.

I guess you could probably say I'm addicted to it.

Anyway, I had seen what looked like waterfalls on some people's farms and wondered how they did it, especially since I knew that you couldn't overlap the river pieces. Then today I was on a friend's farm and she had done it, so I asked how. She directed me to this YouTube video. So now I'm going to try it on my farm and see how it goes.

Sorry if it takes a while to load. It's a long video.

Friday Fill-In #140 we go!

1. I feel tired - but then it is Friday and it's been a busy week.

2. A trip down memory lane is always fun.

3. Right now, I can hear these things: the printer that is next to me, my self typing and someone dropping a pencil.

4. Today is Friday and I'm glad because that means I don't have to work tomorrow.

5. The last time I went on a roller coaster was a couple of years ago at the Royal Melbourne Show.

6. This is not Labor day weekend for me - that was in March.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to Fort Night with the kids from GNG, tomorrow my plans include sewing, sewing and more sewing and Sunday, I want to relax, after my breaky meeting to plan GNG for next week and teaching and fellowship at church, although I may still be sewing if it's not all done on Saturday!
