In the quietness of the evening

It's been an ordinary day today - - -
* sleeping in after attending a 50th birthday party last night - it was so good to be able to visit
and chat with people I hadn't seen in a long while
* having a morning visit with my brother, sister-in-law, and niece
* trying to make the singing bamboo top sing (we don't quite have it yet, Victoria)
* doing a load of wash and hanging up the clothes to dry
* heading out to the library for more reading material - quickly becoming a Saturday ritual
* laying on the couch to enjoy those new books
* sitting at the computer to chat with you a few moments
- - - and the pain is tolerable...
and I'm thankful for energy to go through an ordinary day...
and hoping for that same energy to be able to attend church tomorrow...

Just content,


  1. They made the Singing Bamboo Top look so easy when they played it in Thailand! They would set off a number of them one after another. Do you recommend the book "Three cups of tea?" I saw you were reading it while back.

  2. I need your "top" expertise, Victoria. We have to get that top to sing somehow, eh? And yes, I would recommend Three Cups of Tea. An inspiring and fascinating read!
