WHAT DOES A CLOUD WEAR UNDER HIS RAINCOAT?

"THUNDERWEAR!'

We had rain last night - good ol' thunder and lightening RAIN!!  Our crunchy grass is so happy today and I didn't even complain when the dog tracked mud into the house.

Some of you have asked about my eye.
Thank you for caring enough to ask. . .it is getting better each day.  Still using the eye drops and should be good as new by Friday, so the doc says. In the meantime no contact lenses and I am so lovely going about my business in my huge, old "Coke bottle" glasses.  "Don't hate me 'cause you ain't me."

Lest  you think I've totally lost my mind with yesterday's post about "dill pickle ice cream".  That little story was meant as a "parable" to reflect what is going on in my life, but it actually sounded as though I meant it LITERALLY.  *blush*  I think I'll leave the parables to Jesus from now on, 'cause I obviously don't have  the knack for writing them.  The cake, the ice cream, the pickles, they were each meant to represent something.  This little episode never really happened.  There was no Hot Fudge Chocolate Lava Cake.  Yep, I'm still on this dang diet.  And certainly I would never accept Dill Pickle Ice Cream - not even on my wackiest of days!


My life is going through some changes right now and my emotions are bouncing all over the place.  It's nothing bad, but it is change, difficult change.  It will be ok, but it simply takes a while to wrap one's head around change sometimes.  That's where I am now. . .I will share it with you soon, but right now it's not mine for the telling.  What would I do for therapy if I didn't blog??  Run Mister and my real-time girlfriends CRAZY!  Blogging is such a healthy thing, probably even better for us than raw spinach leaves.
 Just sayin . . .

I'm outta here girls, and off to slay a few giants before the day is done!

Of course! ;) A parable!

Happy to hear your eye is better......coke bottle glasses are cool.....just ask my baby sister! When she can't wear her contacts, she gets irritable having to wear hers! You're gorgeous and so is she no matter what you're wearing!

Oh, I know what you mean about change! I am really bad at change........and you would think as much as I've had in my life, I would be a master of the thing! :)

Whatever this change is, I pray it will change your life for the better!

Hang in there. One of my father's favorite sayings was that "what doesn't kill us makes us stronger". Blessings to you- xo Diana

Although I kind of like raw spinach, I think I would much rather read your blog. :)

The only CONSTANT is CHANGE! We may as well get used to it. Nothing stays the same......

Linda Chapman said...

Glad your eye is better! You need to SEE when change is taking place!

I'm impressed that you have been able to wear contacts. I had to give them up many years ago because of abrasions to my cornea so I feel your pain. Also really sorry about the other emotional things you are experiencing. I know that it takes time for me to adapt to all the changes as they happen.

I now must go and re-read the dill pickle story. ;-)

I hope everything works out for the best (things usually do, although it can take time and perspective to see that). In the meantime, if you're ever up for a game of Words With Friends, hit me up! Oh - and I'm glad your eye is ok. I'm sure that was PAINFUL!

This has been a weird summer for us too...things are changing and some of them we have no control over. But I'm confident all will be better soon and I hope it's the same for you. I'm glad you didn't eat pickle icecream too...I'm just sad I'm so dense and didn't get the parable! Oh well, when it comes to food I'm serious!

I LOVE your parable! After your core ache blog, the meaning seems clear to me! You had to search for the meaning in Jesus' parables, too! Don't give up on writing your parables! I identify with chocolate stories!
