My blogsite will be under a new name starting Monday at:

I'm finally getting a few things done I've wanted to do for some time. I makes it hard when knowledge of computer-use is on a two-year old's level! My eyes glaze over when I listen to any kind of instruction!

I hope this change won't be problem.

What a nice weekend. It was quiet, yet busy enough to get a few things done--both business and pleasure!

The weather has been so nice. I hope I take the time to enjoy some of it. Our garden is waning but still producing a little. I made a big batch of salsa this weekend using tomatoes, jalapenos, green peppers and onions from the garden. I added fresh cilantro, fresh lime juice and banana peppers (from a friend's garden!) to it as well. Of course, to give it "the heat", I added seasonings. It came out pretty good--but not as good as Chapala's!

It was a good weekend.

This week is flying by; I'm glad!

It's not that I don't want to enjoy each day. It's that I have so much to do, and I need the weekend to get it all done. It's so hard to work full time and have any extra time leftover for anything else. (I do not know how these young mothers do it.) I try to take each day and not look too far ahead--but there are times when I fail desperately.

My focus needs to daily be brought back to what really matters--a time-schedule, or people?

It's obvious there are many things I've been neglecting--I've spread myself too thin.

I'm having to do some back-pedaling and tie up more loose ends of my course work. That was discouraging to discover (not to mention the emotional impact of dragging out all the materials again). I have also neglected my good eating habits. Each new week I begin anew.

I know things will all level out, but right now........

I didn't realize it has been so long between posts.

My life seems to be in a state of being "between." I'm not really anywhere. I did finish my finals but haven't sent it in yet--still proofing it. I did talk to my boss but gave no definite time of quitting--only my desire to. I did talk to God about the sale of our daughter's house but want His timing--my trust is fully in Him.

So, my life is hovering in the "between." I will, though, continue to "keep on" in the meantime.

My eyes are not opening very well this morning--I started my finals last night!

It's very hard and tedious. I have at my disposal all resources (I can find) to help me; but if you do not know what the "doctor" is saying (because of a hundred and one staged interferences), many hours can be spent listening to one word over and over, trying to hear anything (consonant/vowel) that will give you a clue. I finally wised up and went to bed after so many hours of it!

But, today is a new day. I will stand firm--and move forward.

I am heading toward a cross-walk in my life.

I am excited, but I'm trying to stay level-headed and not get full of expectation. I do not know God's timetable for my life; He has a plan for me and knows when my direction should turn. I am to stand fast, not allowing the flesh to sway me. I know disappointment cracks the door to the flesh, and that's when my stand will weaken.

I'm thankful for God's Word, ever-filling my mind with His promise, "I am with you always."
