    Scripture Memorization for the Soul

    I've memorized 139:7-10. I think coming on the heels of a devo I'd recently finished that it has really impressed upon me that there is nowhere where He isn't. It's easy to say He was, and is, and is to come. But to really stop and think about that for a minute; in the vastness of creation, from the beginning to the ending of time, there is no space in which He is not present. (And if that isn't mind-boggling enough, that same God has numbered the very hairs on my head.) Anyways. Just thinking out loud..

    It was funny though Yes..ish? It is likely a sign we are deficient in something.. that may be fats, or it might be something else. It could be that I need more sleep, or I might need more food in general to fuel my activity. It could be a micronutrient that I'm missing in my diet that is found in some prevalence in PB. Or it could be stress and PB triggers happy brain chemicals. But, it is not such a simple thing as a lack of willpower. We will never forget the great corn gif of 2018. I enjoyed it! I think it probably gets so much attention because 1) there are so MANY interpretations you'd be hard pressed to not find at least one that you're fond of [by the by, does anyone else 'hear' the characters speak in their movie voices while you're reading?] 2) it's pretty short, so even during the busy season, you can still get through it fairly quickly. I don't think I've read The Cricket on the Hearth. Will be adding that to my list Maybe not the movie..that looks scary..

    Thanks! I'm not sure how 'advanced' it would be considered, but it is fun! Yep! And it is only bad because I have a tendency to lose all sensibility around it. (Like a 16oz jar = 2 servings..or less) Part of the reason Coach K wants me to eat more fats is because of that tendency, operating on the hypothesis that my person requires more fats than what I've been giving it on a routine basis and as such my brain will scream loudly until I feed it copious amounts of PB.

    Week 2 summary: Eat. Specifically, NO skipping meals.Check! Moar fat. Eat more fats during the day Check! Measured PB containers Check, mostly. Friday I was tired but wanted to watch a movie. Knew I wouldn't make it through without fuel, but instead of eating the premeasured, I just grabbed one of the small jars. Oops. Yoga. Goal is to practice Hurdlers 3/week. Check! Making steady progress, and I'm well pleased by this. Current max is now 30s. (Need to work on the left side. Definitely weaker.) Check boxes: ☐ Read A Christmas Carol by the end of the challenge. Check! Rolling goals: Daily Devo 7/7, plus memorization for accountabilibuddies. Daily duo 7/7. Skin care 4*/7. *probably more than that, but for whatever reason I didn't put it in the tracking. No entry/no points. Walking. 7/7. 8k steps 57 weeks straight. 10k bonus: 7. Woo! #Yoga365 730. 7/7. Bonus 5. Don't forget front split practice! Check! Survived the annual office get-together without major incident. Much deliciousness was partaken of, including bacon-wrapped dates. As noted above, finished scheduled reading. Probably will go back and finish Bleak House now. The Christmas decor is 99% complete and the boxes cleared away. Shopping is about 75% complete. Finished 4.5mi and kept below 10 minutes for all. (Barely, but 9:59 still counts! ) Overall, a solid week as weeks go.

    Gemma pares it down. Waaaaayyyyy down.

    As somebody once said, doing something when you have the choice to do nothing is everything. Good job! YES! Good on you for donating it. It wouldn't do you or anyone else any good taking up space, and it can find a good home with someone that has that precise level of kitsch.

    I'm no chef, but I'm fairly sure that isn't supposed to happen.. Putting it in the microwave, yeah I could maybe see that happening, if all the sparks are anything to judge by.. Maybe the foil had some sort of non-stick coating that's only rated to a certain temp?

    Thanks! I think it would be more accurate to say I put my foot through it versus actually falling through. I'd been in a semi-crouched position when I stepped off the edge of the plywood onto the drywall. Next thing I knew I was kneeling on said plywood, with one foot hanging through the hole I'd just made. It took a minute to register what had happened. But, I didn't hit hard enough to leave a mark on that knee, and I only had a mark the size of a dime on my shin from the rafter. Very fortunate that I did not step both feet onto the drywall or I would've been hurting. Lol. That is quite a mental image! This is the pose I'm working on. See, having the cat push my head down shifted my center of gravity so I was able to hold my back leg off the ground for a few seconds. (My record at this point is 8 seconds and my.. side leg? isn't quite that straight yet.) Thanks! Honestly it happened so fast that I didn't have time to be frightened. Really I didn't even figure out what happened until my brother, who was up there with me, said so. At first I was more upset about adding another thing to be fixed, and it didn't really click how lucky I was to be unhurt until after we'd gotten down. Amen, and may that be true of all of our collective holiday celebrations!
