  1. 27 degrees! The Californians are freezing!

    Found Lettieโ€™s Bible and two diaries. I only need 78 more diaries (unlikely).

    Tired of scanning. Iโ€™m returning to the office in just a bit to put in about 5 more hours with the scanner while Cat stays here to join her international Zoom prayer group. These young people pray together 4-5 hours!

    After lunch weโ€™re headed to Louisville to socialize.

    I realized this morning that the brunch tomorrow is full of seasoned and wise Christian women. Iโ€™m going to present them with some of my questions from this weekโ€™s researchโ€”tee hereโ€” and they donโ€™t even know me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. This afternoon, I will go around and change time on the clocks that need changing. Much of what I have changes without help.
    I have decided not to change the cars. The only thing I notice on them is the minute hands now. I don’t ventur3e away that much.

    Every time I change clocks, I change air filters and batteries on smoke alarms. I have done that already.

    It would suit me ok if we didn’t do that. Just leave the clocks alone.

  3. ๐Ÿ™‚ No need to change clocks here in Saskatchewan

    ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Power is out – poles have been knocked down

    ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Guess I will have to reset clocks today ๐Ÿ™‚

    ๐Ÿ™‚ I just ‘fluffed’ my first two Christmas trees (but they are going outside so I wanted to get that done before it’s -40)

    ๐Ÿ™‚ You get a lot of little things done when the power is out – dusting, putting things back where they belong, opening the second shower box…

  4. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I got hardly any time at home this week. Thursday was the only full day at home. We were gone Sunday (all day) to Wednesday (half day) and then away most of the day yesterday, and I was away most of the day today,. And that is with deciding not to attend my Wednesday night Bible study and the Reformation Day event at church–it was simply too much.

    ๐Ÿ™‚ Everything we were “away” for was good. Three days in one state park, one day in a nice touristy town and another state park, and today a Bible study and women’s craft day at church (but 11-5 is a long time span). And we got me a new purse and wallet (both sorely needed) and three new skirts. And some lovely fall views.

    ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ˜ฆ A lot of ups and downs with our former pastor. My husband has been very involved (communicating needs and prayer requests to others), and he has played that part well. And right now the news is tentatively good, though the road to recovery will be long and it’s too early to know for sure about his kidney function. But it’s a whole lot more encouraging than it was a week to ten days ago.

  5. Kim – There is a certain kind of lamp that is supposed to help with that. A former pastor struggled with SAD each year, and finally his wife convinced him to splurge and buy the lamp. (They are normally very frugal, but she thought this would be worth it.) He said it really did help him.

  6. My friend Norma believed she suffered from that as well, she did not like overcast days (at all!) but seemed to need sunshine, a lot of it, every day. I’d be happy in Seattle, on the other hand ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Kim, get the lamp! It does really help. Just sit and read a book beside it every day. Up here in the north where we only get 8 hours of daylight we really feel the seasons.

  8. I like overcast days, and I actually do like the early darkness of this time of year. It makes home feel more cozy in a way. (I also like beautiful sunny days, too, but there is a beauty in an overcast day, too.)
