Mommy's Idea

Mrs. 4444 is hosting another Friday Fragments.  Why don’t YOU join here, too?! 

Here’s my five:
  • souls were poured out last night in our prayer/accountability group…lots of tissues pulled out of the box during our anxiety cleansing…so thankful God walks ahead of us and gives us only what we can bear
  • a little chickadee has decided my bay window is his path through my house.  I’m telling him there really is a window there (that little beak is going to split if he doesn’t quit pounding it against the glass)…he’s not understanding my words apparently…he MUST have a headache by now
  • baked some cinnamon bread this morning and the smell is wonderfully comforting on this overcast, colder weather morning.  I want to know, “WHERE’S OUR SNOW?  We haven’t had any and I don’t want DINOSAUR-sized mosquitoes this Summer Sad smile
  • my collegeGirl is going to be celebrating her 21st birthday next week…

she’ll be celebrating with one of her good friends in her collegeTown on her actual birthday… 
Will we get to celebrate with her? 

20ChanningDon’t know yet…stay tuned.

  • hubs is attending a weekend-long woodworking seminar at a local arena with tons of vendors, demonstrations and project ideas.  I like going to those sometimes, but the thought of standing on a cement floor for multiple hours makes my knees hurt…

My eyeballs hurt, so there may be some cucumber slices during my afternoon down time (if said chickadee lays off his ‘machine-gun attack’ on my window, that is). 
If I have to lounge quietly with the slices on my eyelids, it will help me stay away from the cinnamon bread, ha HA…sounds like a plan and I’m making NO guarantees it will work.   
Now to go wrap collegeGirl’s gifts before Hubs comes back home with all his new band saw projects and takes over the workbench.

We once had a blue bird who insisted on pecking our window. So annoying from such a gorgeous little critter.

I can just smell that cinnamon bread. Hope the poor little birdie catches a clue soon and stops pestering your window...

Thank you for stopping by my site and wishing Barry well on his entry into the church. It's been a long time coming and I am so very happy, as is he.

Please show me pictures of the prayer shawl you are working on when it is complete. I'd love to see it.

MS turns 21 in a couple of weeks & I have no hopes of seeing him on his actual birthday!

Happy Birthday to your daughter. How exciting it is to become 21!

Love when I'm in a Bible study group and know they're praying for things in my life!

Happy Birthday to your daughter!

And bless that little birds heart, he just doesn't seem to learn!

I have a wonderful cinnamon bread recipe I haven't made in ages. You've inspired me to pull it out and make some when my girls are home. Happy Birthday to your lovely daughter!


Never have we had any bird pecking glass...but they've flown into the windows many-a-time. I've found that if I put a translucent decal on the windows, they don't come near them any more. I bet that can really become annoying, for sure.

As for the wood seminar, my husband would like that, a lot!!

And your pretty. I'm sure you're proud.

From birds pecking on the windows and mortar shells going off at Ft. Bragg, when's a woman supposed to sleep?

Blessings, sister.

There is a reason we have a saying: "bird brain"! Hahaha. Birds are NOT very smart; if God had not hard-wired them for migration, nest building, etc. they would have become extinct long ago. Hope you get some relief from the window-tapping maniac soon!

Also hope you get to celebrate with the girl child :)
