iSight is hilarious. My grandfather was a great sport and took some of these pictures with me.

Down for Repairs

I think I've grown soft at college, or at least my luck is down.

While walking about the house (barefoot) on Friday, I stepped on a tiny fragment of glass which buried itself in my heel. All attempts to extract the foreign body have been unsuccesful... at least it doesn't hurt very much!

This morning (Tuesday), while working on stocking firewood in our woodshed, a piece of dust flew into my right eye. It opted to settle there for the duration of the day, causing considerable stimulation of the lacrimal duct. :)

For all that, being home is wonderful. I have been treated to excellent food, sleep, and the occasional spectacular sunset!

“Home is the place where, when you have to go there,
They have to take you in.”

“I should have called it
Something you somehow haven’t to deserve.”

The Death of a Hired Man
Robert Frost

No I don't live in that house.
Yes it is my dreamhouse.

"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust."
Matthew 5:44-45

"And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain bretheren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also."
Acts 17:6

I'm Done

I'm Done.

OK, it's 6:23 now, what do I need to get done in the next 15 minutes?

No, no, John, your done...

Sigh. Wry smile...

I feel like the puppy. Surprised, a little unsure, and ready to go.

But, I'm done.
