a NEW Thursday thought

I thought this quote was good to pair with this Australian sunrise photo I took on our recent trip there.  I hope to always remember to make a concerted effort to lift others whenever I can – because there are certainly many people who have lifted me through the years!

Have a great day. Do something NEW!

Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share

feather1

Happy Monday!  Yeah, this is a random/miscellaneous photo I took recently.  If anyone can tell me the name of this plant, please chime in – I’m interested to know.  Since it’s hard to see the perspective from this photo…these were a lot taller than I am!

Other random stuff I’ve done or noticed lately:

  1. I enjoyed listening to “Racing Porcupines” on my way to work a few days ago.  Good motivational stuff!
  2. I studied a few parables of Jesus recently and was interested to learn that most parables are included in the books of Matthew, Mark and Luke…but not in the Gospel of John – there’s just allegories in the Book of John. I was also interested in the categorization of the parables…especially the eschatological parables.
  3. I was at a luncheon this week and they served a kale/quinoa/pomegranate salad that looked really Christmassy-Red-and-Green.  I wonder if I could pull off serving something like that at my house (???) I tried to find a recipe, but nothing popped up.  Anyone have any clues of where to find a similar-sounding recipe?

Have a great Monday!  Do or learn something New!

 

a NEW sign for my teenage son’s bathroom

bathroomsign

Happy Tuesday!  I recently read a story of a gas station in Kentucky that has amazingly clean restrooms.  It turns out, they simply have a sign above their mirror that says: “Please pretend this is your own bathroom and that your mother is coming for a visit.  Thank you.”  {Ha! Genius!}  So, I thought I’d post this sign in my boys bathroom to see if cleanliness improves!  :o)  I just told them to use their imaginations!  I’ll return and report…wish me luck!

Have a great day!  Do or learn something NEW!
