Odds & Ends

Bec here to fill in while hubby takes his hiatus from all things active while the knee heals. Here is my conquering hero sporting the latest fashion in knee braces.

I will spare you the up-close shot of his lovely colored knee. The good news is that the docs don't seem to think that cycling or running need to end permanently, but I'll let Scott give you all of the gory details when he wishes.

Soooo. . . to entertain his faithful readers (our mothers, that is), I am including some randomness. Look closely now, and keep in mind that this is from an instruction booklet for a hair straightener I recently purchased. . . .

Yes, folks, that says "Never use while sleeping." While I am an advocate of multitasking, I must admit that I am not the world's greatest multitask-er. However, the thought of straightening my hair while I watch those cute, little sheepies jump over the fence appeals to me. In fact, doing a great number of things while I sleep appeals to me. Shall I start a list? Eating, reading, washing the dishes, grading, dusting. . .you name it! Oh, the things I could get done while I sleep! If only. . . .*sigh* The real question, though, is what kind of idi. . . er, umm. . .*ahem* person caused the author to have to include this warning against the use of a heated appliance while sleeping? Interesting, eh?

Okay, now for the real entertainment--the small, noisy one and her latest exploit. . .

  1. I must say, Becky does an excellent job! Gianna is so adorable. It will be fun to see her and Micah together,
    Lovely picture of the knee!
    I got you beat on the while sleeping thing. I have watched many movies while sleeping. The trick is to wake up periodically and and ask a few pertinent questions before resuming sleep. Every 15 to 20 minutes or so keeps you right up with everything.
    Gianna reminded of Prov. 24:16 "The just man falleth seven times and riseth up again...."
    So like our Christian walk. We are going to fall in our growth into Christ-likeness, however the key is "riseth up again."
    Also thinking of the wisdom of God in a human learning to walk while only a few inches off the ground. Hate to think of the thud we'd make if we weree full grown. Maybe Daddy is right---I think too much.................
