- All tupperware bowls & lids are stored in one place together. All of those containers that we don't mind not getting returned are stored together in one place. Pretty sure every body has lids to go with!
Thanks for the E, Teresita & Jo B. I'm enjoying my Thurs. & I've finished the challenge!
Off to an Art class tonight. Have never painted a picture in my life; this should be interesting!

"clutter" is my middle name!

- Ha! Done! I emptied all the pockets over the weekend. Washed all the winter things yesterday & returned the gloves & mittens to the winter coat pockets so I'll have them in Dec. Found things:
lip balm, life savers, and money! First two went to file 13, and the rest went into the piggy bank!
Thanks for the E, Grace!
Day 2 of my pact with Teresita is done!
“I had assumed that the Earth, the spirit of the Earth, noticed exceptions -- those who wantonly damage it and those who do not. But the Earth is wise. It has given itself into the keeping of all, and all are therefore accountable.”
― Alice Walker
Happy Earth Day, everyone!
(and since today is my darling daughter's birthday, that's her picture smiling at you all!)

- Still figuring out my new phone. I know how to delete somethings; not others. And afraid to mess too much with it since I really don't know what I'm doing. But whats in there works for me! So I kinda guess this is a no to this challenge.
“I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.”

- Starting on the kitchen clean-up tomorrow!
“As Christians, we celebrate many holidays and memorials throughout the year. Some we decide to celebrate by referencing events in the Bible. Others are related to events in our personal lives. Still more are pushed upon by this World.
There's nothing necessarily wrong with celebrating events that bring us joy or keep important parts of our lives in focus.
As a Christian, it is important for me to follow Christ's words and teachings. I do not obey man's intepretations of God's word. I read it and follow it. Its that simple. I dont need an interpreter. Christ is my intermediary. Ive been blessed to have been given the gift of language and... in the Bible, when you read it in Aramaic, there is only ONE event, one memorial that Jesus asks us to remember and thus honor our Savior. And its not His birthday. We are upon that annual event this weekend. For Jesus "blessed and he broke and he said, “Take eat; this is my body, which is broken for your persons; thus you shall do for my Memorial."
[1 Cor 11:24]
Holidays can be fun times for families to get together and to celebrate life. This weekend lets not lose focus. For this is the one and ONLY holiday that our Christ commands us to memorialize. Its in his words. Its in the Bible. It was important enough for Him to spell it out. It should be important enough for us to listen. Above all other events in our lives, isn't Christ Jesus's sacrifice truly the most magnificent one? Lets remember our Savior and not allow the World to mislead us into over prioritizing any other day than when -He gave His life for us. Truly His act was a gift to mankind that remains matchless.”
