Sunday a musing

Spiritually I am working my way through my Pastor's sermons, which I have missed, through Podcasts I have a lot to catch up on.

what caught my attention was

Pastor made a good point IF YOU ARE NOT WELL RESTED......
That makes sense
to me


My daughter's team won last game 15/1 Pretty impressive I am so proud of that team

Sunday my favorite day!!!!!!!!

I was at my favorite Church today with my favorite person MY DAUGHTER.

my daughter helped me

I can ask her for her opinions and she gives it to me straight up. she thought it would look good to put my alphabet beads into my necklace spelling my name RIMA in silver oval beads. I looks even better than I thought it would.
Last night I worked on my own mystery case and I solved it. it was very exciting . Now I wait for Crimescene to start their next case. Off to church we go

my mantra for today

I was able to repair and restore my necklace today. As a reward I used up some of my seed beeds and some of my left over big glass blown beads and made 2 bookmarks from them. I find this a good way to focus, listen to classical Music, or to my Churches Podcasts. I am truly multi tasking


We dropped puppy off for a much needed hair cut we can out of the salon and the sky was grey sky and SNOW it did not last phew. My car is getting his winter tires come on the 11 th. just in time

my necklace broke ;(

Now, I was so lucky, that it broke in a spot so all the beads stayed I bought 3 yards of replacement wire to try to repair it for tomorrow.I am feeling stronger and my desire is to see my friends at church. no more crutches wheelchair or scooters just a brace for the rest of my life.which I am happy with.i can not handle such pain again. i walked 7 weeks on a broken ankle and a torn tendon . I would not want this pain ever again

What a beautiful day

now after chores, the fun can begin. here are my thoughts about Black Friday. I DID NOT BUY A SINGLE THING!!!!!! and for CYBER MONDAY I will safely be tucked away at work. I was able to give christmas postcards to my friends at work. Now I wait to see who I get Christmas cards from ;)

Groan time for chores

I broke my ankle last year on ice now I wear a steel brace

Thanksgiving lunch

It was wonderful. We had reservations at THE RED BLAZER It was amazing I started with desert first. mini cherry cheese cake and brownies on a stick and so much more. Although I got small samples of all offered foods, i
I was unable to sample everything. No one stuffed themselves, and no one argued

I give thanks everyday

Nightmares again

Last night I woke up by my screaming in pain. Since my surgery I have been battling nerve pain in my last three toes ( on my right foot) not only did my foot feel like it was on FIRE but also like someone was stabbing the ankle with a knife. I think that was the worst attack of pain I have had in 7 months. Man that hurt. tonight it is still very sore and tender. I hope I don't have another attack again.


We have a tradition. 24 days as the Norwegians celebrate Christmas Eve.
My mom embroidered an advent calender just for my daughter, and every year we fill it with small gifts. Traditions are very important to our family . We are CO-PARENTS TO A 13 year old, and Boy am I glad I am not married anymore. Parenting is a tough job. my child is my life, without my faith, my church family and our extended family. Life would be difficult at best

I will try to post a link

A perfect fall day

Today was a perfect fall day. From sleeping in late to walking the dog and finishing a school project. I won a prayer shawl at a work auction and added swarowski pearls to it. What an elegant look this made. It came out so much better than imagined.

My 13 year old daughter finished building her sxhool project and raked the yard voluntary. I think this is really nice of her. Some days I do not understand her at all, and some days I do.

I found a new friend, she homeschools her 3 children, she is my hero, as I wanted to do that 13 years ago. what stopped me in my tracks was, working fulltime nights, and having to sleep part of my day away.

this is my first blog post so I will try not to ramble on too long

my absolute favorite web site is
