Things worth a chuckle.

Anyone Else Have This Happen?

This is most  definitely me!! anyone else?

Yes, yes, yes! Someone finally understands!

 

I have done this more times than I can remember.  I stash something so securely that when it comes time for me to use it, I can’t find it and have to go out and buy another one, only to find the stashed item way later when I have no need for it!  This has happened to me with Christmas and birthday gifts, with a special something I am saving for later, and with tools.  Yes, you read right.  Tools. My husband and I have our own set of tools because he doesn’t always put them away after he uses them and it drives me nuts to have to waste time in an unfruitful tool search.  So I hide my tools somewhere he won’t find them and then when I need them I cannot find them either!

Just gotta laugh!

I think from now on I will have to jot a note somewhere as a reminder where I put the prized item, but the way things go with me, I will forget where I jotted that down also.

Anyone else have this happen?

Rolly-pollys

Way to cute not to share, if this don't make you smile your not human. (not our pic)

How precious are these rolly-polly babies!  They look like Pillsbury dough animal babies!  Makes you wanna cuddle them and lovingly squeeze them and GENTLY poke their huge bellies!

Things Aren’t Always as They Appear

imageSome days just go a little awkward, you know?

Like the hot summer day over twenty years ago, when I sat by an open window repeatedly doing the a wolf whistle (the kind a man does when a pretty woman goes by), in an attempt to teach our new parakeet, Jesse, how to whistle.  After Jesse’s 10 minute lesson, I stood up and noticed that just a few yards from my window, my neighbor’s shirtless husband was wiping his car dry. Apparently, he had been washing it for at least 10 minutes.  Continue reading

A Note From an Aspiring Author

Book writing, like wine,

only gets better with time;

and an enormous amount of revision.  emy

Okay everybody, I am finally almost done. For reals this time! Really, I meant it!

But what a chore it has been.

For a while I have been threatening to write a memoir. Well, I finally did, but the funny thing is that it’s not my memoir.  Though, of course, it has an awful lot of my heart and soul in it.

It’s really the fictional memoir of a homeless man named Nick. I have a desire to bring awareness to the tragedy of homelessness and the heartbreak of un-adopted foster kids that age out of foster care, and end up homeless.

As if those poor kids have not been through enough already.

Yes, this really does happen, by the way.

You may have some questions.

How did I end up writing a fictional memoir, rather than my own? And What on earth would make me think anyone would even be interested in reading my memoir anyway?

Unwelcome Doggy Surprise

Oliver (white) and his sister Sofi

Oliver (white) and his sister Sofi

Oliver has been one of the best dogs I have ever had.  I knew immediately he was the right one when I saw him.

If only finding a human life companion was that uncomplicated.

It was a terrible time of my life then, and I was desperate for a buddy. I knew a puppy would help chase the blues away.  I drove—one hour, one way— for the puppy I wanted at a semi-affordable price.  I wanted a girl puppy, and planned on naming her Olivia.

When I got to the pet shop, there was a litter of five white, adorable, eight week old Peekapoos.

The only girl was too yappy.  She yapped in her high-pitch bark anytime anyone got near the kennel, and would not shut up until they walked away.  Continue reading

Merry Christmas

From the Yalian household to yours, Merry Christmas!

From the Yalian household to yours, Merry Christmas!

Well, the pooches would

not face the camera

and one antler would not cooperate,

but the sentiment of joy and

fun is still the same:

Merry Christmas from our

household to yours.

May the Lord bless you

and keep you,

may His blessings flow

upon you this Christmas!

Just having a little fun with the joy of the season!

Does God Celebrate Christmas?

cropped-image5.jpg

Well, seeing how Christmas is a mixture of pagan and Christian traditions, I don’t believe God has a Christmas tree decorated with lights and cherubs.

I don’t believe He adorns the halls of Heaven with twinkling lights and bows of greenery.

I don’t believe the heavenly host rush around their kitchens making millions of divine delights for their annual cookie exchange.

I don’t believe God has shopping requests, or naughty or nice lists. (Though He does say all the names of those who have been washed in the blood of the Lamb have been written in His Book of Life)

I don’t believe December 25th is highlighted on God’s calendar.

God certainly is not a Santa, swooping down as earth sleeps, dropping gifts into chimneys. Continue reading

They Are Only Words!

We define who we are and create our own reality by the words we use and the choices we make… So speak and choose wisely… Truth Sayer

I recently innocently uttered careless words to someone I barely knew.

I was at the grocery store very preoccupied with a heavy issue that weighed on me. I took my groceries out of the cart and placed them on the conveyor belt then realized my cashier was a nice woman I had done banking business with before. We got to talking about her new job at the grocery store.

“It’s a lot to get used to after so many years of sitting at a desk. I’m worn out at the end of the evening. I’m very out of shape,” she said referring to her weight.

“Yeah, I bet you are,” I said, digging through my purse looking for my debit card–then was horrified at my own comment. What I meant to say was that I understood how tired she was at the end of the evening, but I know that is not what she heard. I know because of the look on her face. I felt terrible.

Of course, I tried to backpedal telling her I had a similar experience years ago when I went from a desk job to standing on my feet nearly eight hours a day; which was the truth. I knew the more I tried to correct my mistake the worse it would sound so I changed the subject. I should have said something like this instead.
