Books Have Been Ordered

IN THE NEWS: According to World Magazine, Hollywood California residents are considering grinding up birth-control pills and mixing them with bird feed on the roofs of some buildings to prevent the pigeons from further breeding. "Our streets are getting bombarded by the poop way too much," said one resident.
(I like that idea for seagulls, too)

I'm late posting. But I had a late night. We have friends in town, so we got a babysitter for the little one and met them at a bar last night.

In short, the band was good, the bar was a dive, and I got hit on. Yeah, that's right. I STILL got it! It's kind of a funny story, but I'm too tired to write it right now.

Besides, something feels "off" today. It might have something to do with that funny thing in the sky. It's bright and sort of yellowish. I seem to remember it from a time long ago...

Could it be? No. Why, yes. It's the sun!

It suddenly feels like summer again, too. Will wonders never cease? Maybe that means I can actually get out of the house today and DO something. We'll see.

Oh yeah, I thought I'd give you all an update on what I finally decided to spend my gift check on. Being the good churchgoer I am, I decided to order one book for my church library. So I ordered Beth Moore's Get out of that Pit. 1) because I don't think my church has it, and 2) I've always wanted to read it.

For myself, I ordered Noah Lukeman's The First Five Pages. What can I say? I'm a glutton for How-To writing books. So sue me.

And now that you know what I've ordered, I'm sure you all can sleep peacefully. Enjoy.

Have a great weekend!

Both sound really interesting. Good choices. Glad you guys had a great time with friends...I might do something with a friend this weekend. She is having surgery next week and will be down for several weeks. She has three kids and her husband works out of town during the week.

Have a great weekend!

You go, girl! I want to hear about that experience.

Sounds like the weather up there has been the the opposite of what has been here. We've been praying for rain. This is the secon full week of 100 degree temps. Thursday it was 104. The entire metro area has watering restrictions, and everybody's lawn have turn an interesting shade of tan.

We finally had a mini-monsoon that lasted about two hours.

I was going to wish you a good weekend, but you always have those! :)
