Receptionist Duty

I really like covering for the receptionist at work. 
And I really don't like the quality of camera on my new(ish) phone.
Two seemingly unrelated things, I know.

When Michelle is gone sometimes I cover for her and that means I can arrive at work an hour later because I normally stay an hour longer in such cases.  Last Thursday (and tomorrow!) was just such a day, so I decided to use that hour and go to Starbucks to read.  I sat outside by the fountain and it was so nice!

(Here is where the sadness of my camera phone comes in.  I really miss the camera on my old one, but a smartphone was just really impractical for me.)

Anyway, here are a few pictures of the morning.
While I was looking at the fountain a hummingbird came by and flittered around, drank some water then zoomed off.  I just can't get over God's creation.  The speed on that little bird!  Amazing!  It's just so sweet to think of how God cares for and provides water for these little creatures.  Then we know He can definitely take care of us!
A breeze came by and I got a face full of jasmine scent!  Mmmm...is any smell better?
A classic short soy chai.  Say it three times fast.  C'mon!  The barista's can't do it most of the time.  ;)
Anna is letting me borrow Martin Lloyd Jone's commentary on Ephesians 1.  So good!  It's the first time I've read anything by him and he is so readable!  Even his commentary which you would think would tend to be more academic.

I'm looking forward to tomorrow morning!

This made my day...

If you know me well, (I feel like I start a lot of my blog posts off like that) you know that I DO NOT like garden gnomes.  Ew.  Seriously.  Years ago, my family (including Grandma) and I went on vacation to Ephraim, Wisconsin.  My grandma insisted that we stay at a little inn called the Trollhagen.  Trolls...gnomes...they're all the same.  Anyway, it was my worst nightmare come to life!  Somehow, I survived.
I soon found that I was not alone in my fear.  There was a commercial a few years ago that highlighted this phobia.  It was amazing.  I tried finding it on youtube to no avail which is probably a good thing.  Then today, I stumbled across this book on Amazon!


See??!  I'm not crazy!

Pinteresting Wednesdays

I have had a serious lack-of-posting disease lately.  I just haven't had much to blog about. :(  It may also be due to the craziness of May!  Mother's Day, Emily's birthday, and wedding showers!  Every weekend seems to be busy lately and my wallet is empty from all those presents.  Next year, more sentimental gifts. 
I do have a few little projects I've been working on recently.  I may post some of those soon.  Jenn has encouraged me to dip into that "creative...pool...?"  Ha. She is so artistic! 
Well, to ease myself back into posting I will just do a little "pinterest-ing" for you. 
Here is what I have found recently:

I used to not even like gold jewelry, but in the last year or so, it has really grown on me.  And these are so fun!

I seriously wear my hair like this all the time now.  I felt "bun challenged" for years and now I finally feel that I have a grip on it.

I really want to try and ink drawing like this sometime soon.  I love the lines!  And it reminds me of Aslan of course!

Brick walls...oh brick walls I love you.

"Healthy" peanut butter cookies.  My favorite. Oh yes please!

Did you know quinoa (keen-wa) is a complete protein even though it's a grain??  And it's pretty tasty too, in my opinion.

And I think I may try this today.  So summery! So fun!

Heh heh....

Have a good rest of the week!
