More drivel

Aren't you lucky? I have absolutely nothing interesting to write about today, so I'll just unload some more drivel. I've got plenty to spare.

*This story saddens me. And makes me angry. And saddens me again. I want to weep. Those trees are over 100 years old. They're beautiful and majestic and shady and leafy and are part of such a beautiful tradition. They never hurt anybody. Whoever decided to do this needs to refocus their priorities and fill up their free time. Go cure cancer or feed starving children or save the whales or something. Or go spend your free time in prison . . . in the time it takes for you to be found, you can be certain that there's a team of folks out there figuring out what to charge you with. Prison = totally worth it, right? Right?? Quit being such a hardcore loser. The only people who think you're cute and funny are part of your hardcore losers club. Oh, man. I feel it coming on . . . I need to go pray.

*The weather over the last few days has been really, really, ridiculously gorgeous. Sunny. Warm. Breezy. Blue skies. Heaven.

*I'm feeling more encouraged these days. Thanks for the prayers and happy thoughts . . . I'm feeling 'em!

*I'm watching American Idol and falling more in love with Steven Tyler every minute. What a fun guy.

*My mama and daddy came up with a fun little Valentine's Day surprise for me. I have a special valentine to open each day this week. I love taking a special occasion and stretching the stink out of it. Thanks, parents. You're kinda awesome.

*I've got a stack of papers that need to be graded sitting on my counter. Any second now they'll start grading themselves . . . I'll report back.

*Mama's birthday is Saturday and I'm pretty excited. She's fairly incredible. Plus, I've got a little somethin' somethin' up my sleeve. I love having a little somethin' somethin' up my sleeve.

*In a rare, fleeting moment of self-control, I took the piddly remains of my 3 boxes of Girl Scout cookies and left them in the workroom this morning. And I only looked back 22 times as I walked away.

*I'm very much looking forward to mine and Kate's rodeo plans at the end of the month. I plan on having the largest of times. I hope it doesn't disappoint!

*Someday, when I grow up, I'll have a house (with exactly zero upstairs neighbors who do step aerobics for 11 hours each day) and a little garden and a hammock and a porch. And I'll sit on the porch in the summertime and smell the rain and take naps and ponder life. If you're really sweet to me, I'll let you come sit on my porch with me.

*Tomorrow is Thursday, which means the next day is Friday, which is a good thing. Is there anybody out there who doesn't like Fridays? If so, I'd like to talk to you about this.

*This picture is my desktop and may be until the end of time. I took it on a riverboat cruise in Chattanooga this past August on my girls' trip with Mimi. It makes me marvel at how creative and artistic God was feeling that night.

If you made it through that minefield of randomness, you deserve a cash prize. I'm going to go check to see how far those papers have gotten in grading themselves.


  1. Beautiful Sunset...I love drivel days.

  2. One day, I will own a home too. Not live in a home owned by a church, but my own home. where I can paint, and color on the walls and sit on my own porch.
    maybe we can be neighbors! I want to sit on your porch! I will bring the cookies!

  3. J,
