All Tired Out


Spent yesterday morning at Tires Plus getting new tires on my car. Goodbye, hard-earned dollars! It was nice to feel a difference in the drive, though. I have been needing tires for a while. Hopefully my gas mileage will improve now, too.

While "getting tired" I sat outside reading my book. The sky was beautiful. Another GORGEOUS day in God's Country. I'm a happy girl.

While I have your attention, I am going to tell you something weird. You alredy know I'm strange, so this won't surprise you. Recently while listening to sermons or speeches, I have begun a weird practice.. I pick a letter, and I listen for words beginning with that letter, uttered by the speaker, and I write them down. Here's my latest list from a recent sermon: baby, back, balloon, be, been, beginning, believe, best, between, big, bird, blessing, blinded, book, bottom, breathe, build, bundle, burial, but, butt, by. Believe it or not, I think this practice actually helps me pay better attention. Told you I'm weird!

At least you know who you are...okay, that is totally weird! My sweetie counts contents on the back of trucks....lumber, and chicken crates are a favourite.

So, sew, sow.

BTW all three of the S words have a long O.

After I published, I thought, oh poop, there are multiple sows. The verb not the noun.

Yes your are weird but not porcine.

I think your sermon practice is rather brilliant. I guess that makes me weird, too ;-)

Your post made me smile. The comments made me smile too. I never heard of that game . . . but Officer Friendly recited EVERY license plate number when we drove. I probably won't play your game in church, but I might try a round at the next all staff meeting. 8-)

Thanks for all these funny comments. This doesn't even begin to describe all my weird habits. I have a counting habit, too. Not stuff on trucks, but clumps of items, like on bookshelves and in random places, even designs on people's clothing. Someone told me this is OCD-ish. Maybe so. I just like to think it's part of my charm. LOL!
