But then I tasted the above "Fleur de Sel Caramel" and ohmygoshIhavenowordstherearenowordsitwasTHATGOOD.
I have completely moved away from the subject of the post...which is supposed to be moving for 30 minutes. This post has taken me about 30 minutes.
I HAVE MOVED (off subject) FOR 30 MINUTES!! YaHOO!!!
One day down, 13 to go!!! This is way easy!
(Please forgive me Lid for being a bad example. I promise I will do some moving, (maybe even wogging!) today.
Thanks for doing this and encouraging us!!
Freshly washed, 600 thread count sheets on a good pillow top mattress. Sleeping in a room with the window open to the cold spring air and the sounds of softly falling Oregon rain while I'm bundled up in a down comforter.
Hearing the sounds of Rascal Flats sing "Life is a Highway" from the barn in the middle of the night because SOMEONE left the radio on out there. Again. NOT.
I think Rod listens to country music just because he has a barn.
I can say that just because I have a blog. And I am up in the middle of the night listening to his country music drift across the yard while he is gently snoring.
I suppose I could get dressed and go turn it off....
Complaining is so much more fun. Plus, it makes me sound kinda country.
I'm going back to bed.
BIG P.S. That was written at 1:04 am.
I couldn't fall asleep for H.O.U.R.S. I last looked at the iHome clock radio at 4:02. When I did, I seemed to hear Mandisa faintly singing about My Deliverer....hmmm. Strange.
That song would not be coming from Rod's Hillbilly Mecca out in the barn.....
But it WOULD be coming from MY ipod on the nightstand, volume turned so only a canine and someone trying to sleep and annoyed because they thought their husband left the radio cranked in the barn could hear it.
My bad. I may have blogged a tad too quickly. Rod snored through the whole thing.He obviously didn't leave his radio on. I left my iPod on. (Yes, Rascal Flats is on my Running play list on the iPod)
Don't tell him, okay. But this whole thing would make a mighty hokey country song someday. I'll work on it.

"Mom, did you see the picture Ashley sent over?"
"I sure did. It is now my desktop background. I love it!" I answered.
Josiah's girlfriend, Ashley, knowing how much
Needless to say, Siah was
Josiah went on to explain how if you look closely, you can see basketball star Kobe Bryant to the left of his head in the photo.
"Oh, uh huh." was my unenthusiastic reply. Because the total focus of my attention was not on Kobe, but on my son's happy face.
I don't care if Kobe or President Obama or Sasquatch is behind him shooting hoops. They all fade into the background for me as I gaze at the picture of Josiah and Ashley.
Don't you just want to pinch their cheeks 'cuz they are the cutest things you ever did see?
No? Maybe it's just me...The Mama.
I love seeing my son and his beautiful, sweet girlfriend.
That's it. I'm good.
This makes me think of our daughter Amy who is staying with us for a few weeks while she gets ready to move out of the state. We love to have her come through the front door after work,(especially when she brings home her Starbucks markouts.) and I am thrilled making food and snacks for her. Her face simply makes me happy. (and I am so kidding about the coffee beans.)
Here is a picture of her with an English Bulldog puppy. Sure, I enjoy a cute puppy. But look at my Amy!
Aren't we funny like that? We just overflow with ooey-gooey feelings of love when we see our kids. My face hurts from smiling that big, but I can't help it.
It makes me think of how God feels about us. I bet our pictures are on his fridge right now.
Or His desktop background.
Maybe He has a screensaver which rotates all our photos...?
It also makes me wonder what it will be like to one day see His face.
Think about it....to actually See His Face. Doesn't this just make you smile, thinking about it?
I totally enjoyed what Charles Spurgeon had to say about the subject.
