Update -

Now it is the next morning, I've come into town early, had to use Rebecca's computer to make an Azure Standard order. Just a little something I forgot to do when she had her lap top at my house for Thursday night dinner with her and Mike along with the promise to deactivate comment moderation. But now both are done and before I dash off to pick up Lutefisk and Korv here is a little update.

I just talked to Dirt who has arranged for the healing of my lap top. I fried the Mother Board. I killed my brain's mom! Man that just sounds wrong. But anyway Costco is sending a box and we are to put my lap top in said box, send it back to them, then in fourteen days I get my lap top back. Yes, fourteen days. That is why this post is written in blue... ink?

I'll whine, I'll cry, I'll.. I'll.... I'll buck up. I'll have a terrific weekend with family and friends, all wonderful friends. I'll get applesauce canned and gardens prepared for winter, living room floor installed, trim boards painted and put up, maybe even a bathroom remodeled, certainly ten or so books read. Who knows what all I can do, but I won't be writing, blogs or books or notes or organization plans or Christmas lists or....

Oh who the heck am I kidding, unless Dirt wants his ears to bleed from all the words and ideas I would have to dump on him each day I will go back to good old pen and yellow note pad, or sticky notes or backs of envelopes, or.... And then I will spend days putting it all on my newly restored laptop. So as long as I have pen and paper I can't really get all that much done.

I feel that the whole problem is that I did not name my lap top. Already that thought crossed my brain yesterday and then Bee's comment confirmed it. So I will be naming it when it comes back to me, perhaps something to honor my deceased Mother (board, not Bethel Barker).

Something to ponder while I am gone out dear reader.

Genesis 34. Read it slow, read it carefully. Then come back and read the opening lines a few times over.

May the Holy Spirit guide us and lead us today and tomorrow, in every step, in every way. May all of us always have on our hearts the amazing grace of God and the sacrifice of our Messiah. May the incredible joy that comes to us from Our Father, strengthen us to put self aside for others.
