Checking out Damage

Today Mr. Wonderful will leave and head east to see how things are at the River.

We aren't waterfront, so we are more worried about tree or wind damage.

Wish us luck!

PS.  Just FYI, our place is in between Chocowinity and Aurora.  Right about where the smaller creek is.

Words to live by

Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character;
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.

This is really, really, my favorite reality show!

I just love a reality cooking show!  Love, love, love it!

And believe it or not, Mr. Ramsey is actually a nice guy on this show.


Anyway, tonight is the finale, and we are down to three.

First up is Jennifer Behn.

My feelings would not be hurt in the least if she won.

Next is Christian Collins.

Now, Christian doesn't exactly ooze with personality, he's pretty sure of himself, and quite frankly he just KNOWS he's going to win.

Maybe, he can cook, but he needs to tone it down.

I don't want him to win.  Although I will say I hope something good comes out of it for him because I think he's just arrogant because life hasn't given him a lot of breaks.

So, last but certainly not least, my favorite to win.

Is Adrien Nieto.

I really would like to see Adrien win, of all the contestants, he seems so deserving.  He cooks great, but more than that, he has great character.

Tonight is the big night!

I can't wait to see who wins!

Picking out shoes

Baby Girl is running Cross Country at school this year, and while she has always been a runner.  Running long distances is beginning to take a toll on her chins.  So I thought we would get new shoes.

These just look like they would be great running shoes don't they?  

How about these?

I just thought they were adorable.  But I won't be running.

These look like good running shoes and they come in various arch sizes.

And of course there are these,

What is it about Nike that makes us think we can run faster, jump higher, and just plain kick butt?

I guess deep down we all wanna be like Mike.

New Read!

We've started reading a new book in our Sunday School class.

This one is really, really good, and it's not really a christian book although it is used by a lot of churches.   It is all about how to deal with conflict.

After reading only a few chapters I have to say this is a book everyone needs to read.

We all deal with conflict, whether it's at our work place or at home.  We all have it.  It's basically just a fact of life.  

You might want to check it out.

It certainly couldn't hurt.

It's amazing what paint can do!

Before we left for our vacation, I made a quick stop at the Goodwill store.

And I found this.

I have been looking for one of these for a while, and while they had 2 this time, I really liked this one a little bit better.

But it was filthy, and boring.

And with the magic of Krylon, it became. . . . .

It's already found itself a new home in my room.
