3 Cups of Coffee and On The Edge of My Seat

Yesterday was a very nice day, windy, but nice. Sandy(our dog) and I worked in the garden all of yesterday morning pulling weeds. It was nice to be out in the cool air.

Yesterday afternoon I made a pot of coffee right before the kids came home and had a cup while waiting on them to get home from school. I had one more cup before we left for The Princess's Softball Tournament and I made a to-go cup and took it with us! Total of 3 cups..actually I may have had 4, but who's counting! So I was full of caffiene!

The Princess made it to round one of the Girl's Softball Tournament. WOW what a game! They played Taco Bell. They had already played Taco Bell 2 other times beating them both times and the last game against them went into Over Time! The Princess really had her game face on last night and pitched an AWESOME game! She in fact pitched the WHOLE game! She had me on the edge of my seat the entire game. In fact I was literally on the edge of my seat for the entire time! We started out by being behind 6-1, then we came back and tied it 6-6. All of us Parents just knew that we were going to have to go into OVER TIME AGAIN with Taco Bell, but not so! We were the Home team and got to bat last. The Princess was up to bat, bases loaded(I think), she hit and made a HOMERUN! This gave us the 1 RUN that our team needed to win! Game was over and now the Princess and her team advanced up to round two of the Girl's Softball Tournament. So, say a prayer for the Princess and her team on Thursday evening!

Goooooooooooooooooooooo P&G!

Ok, well this morning I decided that I needed to vaccum. So I vaccumed the kids side of the house and I vaccumed the family room and I was starting to vaccum the kitchen rugs and the dining room when my vaccumed started to smoke! Yes folks, my vaccum started smokin and smelling like smoke too! Yes, it's my fault! One of my kitchen rugs got caught in my vaccum!!! Yes, I know pretty dumb.......and now my vaccum doesn't work! We just bought it when we moved here about 5 months ago! Gee......

Well, the vaccum will be sitting on the curb in the morning waiting to take it's last ride to where it will be laid to rest.......the dump!

Guess I'll be going out and buying a new vac today!

Gray Hair

Have you ever looked in the mirror and noticed that you have started to get a "few" gray hairs? Or then again have you ever looked in the mirror one day and suddenly noticed that your whole head of hair was gray? I think that we look at gray as a color that is not added to your hair, in fact it's a color that gets subtracted!

Well, pigment called melanin is what supplies our hair with its natural color. As we age, the melanin slows down thus producing more of a white or gray color. It actually takes you longer to grow gray hair because it grows only about a half inch per month. Gray hairs are also more resistant, so they stay in your head longer than darker hairs.

You are probably asking yourself, so what is she trying to get at? We often think that gray hair means that you're getting old and will soon be forgetful. The world in general likes to say that you're getting washed out and feeble even! The Bible tells something completely different, " Gray hair is a crown of glory;it is gained by living a godly life." Proverbs 16:31

So.........the saying goes respect the wisdom of your grandparents and elders.......this is so true. So are you now going to cherish your gray hair when you get it or if you already have it? Or are you going to dye it, if you do, you may be covering up a very valuable feature.

Think about it!
