Oh What a Night!

My mammoth Coffee,Coffee, Buzz,Buzz,Buzz ice cream cone and Mom and Dad enjoying the incredible summer weather at the nearby Shoppes at Farmington Valley....Yum,yum!!

Maggots, Grout and Ceiling Tiles

Well, what a day! Today at work, since we arent cooking because of renovations, we are helping put things back together. To start, we scrubbed walls, tables and shelves, and in the process ran into--to my poor stomachs dismay--MAGGOTS!! Yes, I know--how gross! Just writing this is turning my stomach. But because we've been closed, things that havent been cleaned daily are turning into maggot-breeding grounds!! (Well, only 1 floor mat and large plastic bin) But nonetheless!, very nasty. Then, a couple people proceeded to tell me in length, that maggots arent bad at all!!!! They eat dead-tissues, and were(and are still used today!) used to help ward infections people had from wounds and gangrene; AND--to this day, there are farms that raise sanitary maggots!! Although disturbing, it is kind of interesting! I guess you really do learn something new everyday!
After the maggot show, I then grouted some quarry tiles. It was actually kinda fun, I dont mind doing things like that. Anyone have any grouting for me to do?? haha.
Then I had to remove, clean and put back 4x2(approx.) ceiling tiles made out of sheet rock that were quite heavy to be lifting over head! Not to mention getting them in and out was not the easiest thing to do. We only managed to complete about half the room. Then I was actually given a task sitting down for 20 minutes, praises be!!, before calling it a day.
But after inhaling deadly-toxic cleaning chemicals, getting dirt, sheet rock dust, and who knows what else in my eyes and hair, facing the maggots and struggling with ceiling tiles, driving home on this absolutely gorgeous day made my exit an enjoyable one!!
Hope your day was as eventful and beautiful as mine! :)

Superb Saturday(for my big sis)

Ahhh, Saturdays. A day for leisures and lingering; to catch up on sleeping, meander with family and friends and of course a little weeding--wink,wink. Or perhaps soar away to a nearby destination for a little R&R for the day, before returning home to the ole grind stone. But yet, home-as we fondly call it--is where the heart is! (For we all know...there's no place like home!) So enjoy the day, relish the moment and always remember, home can be your greatest adventure!!

Fabulous Friday

It's Friday!! Yayh for all!! Although this week as been quite nice. So far I've only worked Wednesday and today; and then tomorrow. So I guess I cant complain! But there's definitely something in the air when it comes to Fridays...freedom, I think it is. That inner child in us that jumps up and down with excitement knowing we'll be able to do as we please for the next two whole days!! But I dont really know what I'm talking about because I work on Saturdays--but only until 12(usually) so I cant complain. Anyways, :) , HAPPY FRIDAY!

The Good News!

I must tell you all the very important news of the Gospel. Jesus Christ is why we are here, and why I must tell the world of His saving power! He has ...come to seek and to save that which was lost. Lk.19:10
for He is ...THE way, THE truth and THE life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Jn.14:6 For ALL have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. Rm.3:23 For the wages of sin is DEATH,but the GIFT of God is ETERNAL LIFE through JESUS CHRIST our Lord. Rm.6:23 For God so loved THE WORLD,that he gave his only begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER believeth in him should not perish but have EVERLASTING LIFE. Jn.3:16 But God commendeth his LOVE toward US, in that, while we we yet SINNERS, Christ DIED for US. Rm.5:8 That if thou shalt CONFESS with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt BELIEVE in thine heart that God have raised him from the dead, THOU SHALT BE SAVED. Rm.10:9
And whosoever was NOT found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. Rev.20:15
