Just Another Day in Paradise

I guess it is going to be another one of those blah days. I ate my cereal this morning- blah. I can't seem to think of anything to do today that is not blah.

I hope the little sparrows who are trying to build a home inside the open space above one of the living room windows are having a good time. My computer desk is right in front of this window, so I keep hearing noises and seeing birds bumping around the window. Alfred Hitchcock, are you watching?

Since it is chilly outside, I have no desire to take the dogs outside although Daisy might disagree with me. I also, thankfully, don't have to go anywhere so I won't have to fight with the gear shift. We still can't figure out what is wrong, but it seems to work better when it is warmer outside. Good thing we don't live up north. The car shop across the street wanted $60 to $120 just to "diagnose" the problem. Humph.

I guess I just feel lazy today. What? As opposed to any other day? Maybe I should water the poinsettias which are still blooming and putting on new leaves.

I did find this funny...

A new pastor moved into town and went out one Saturday to visit his parishioners. All went well until he came to one house. It was obvious that someone was home, but no one came to the door even after he had knocked several times. Finally, he took out his card, wrote on the back "Revelation 3:20" and stuck it in the door. (Revelation 3:20 reads: "Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If any man hear my voice, and opens the door, I will come in to him, and will dine with him, and he will with me.")

The next day, as he was counting the offering he found his card in the collection plate. Below his message was a notation "Genesis 3:10" ("And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked.").

That was funny.
The pastor story not the car.
I don't really like blah days.

Yeah, the pastor story was a hoot.

Very funny, allthough I guess it could be a true story.

Cute little story!

Hope your car "smarten up" by itself.

How cold is it over there? It's Texas, it can't be that bad....

Try -16C here, right now in Toronto,Ontario, in lovely Canada.'
