Early Monday morning Sunday song

The readings were good, so was the music, but what I most remember was Fr. MacNeil telling the joke about hitting the donkey in the head with a 2x4 to get his attention. He's told it before and always gets the laugh.  Maybe I needed the lumber. I was scraping paint off my dining room floor, adding more paint to it, gluing legs, attaching table tops, and working on the big project, so I missed the midnight post.

Today the song I chose is Today, by New World Son.  It's a tune I hear on 95.5 now and again, and immediately pull over if I'm driving, to listen. It's about letting God take the lead, without the 2x4.

Give a listen. Catchy.  You'll be hummin' it.


Calling it a day on the sofa table.  I talked my hand out of adding anymore spices to the mix.

Before refresher, flaky, peeling, neglected.

This table was an easy rescue. 

Salvaged and restored at a consignment shop, soon to be listed on Craigslist.

Loved how the grooves took the glaze. 

Little toe action.

It will soon be listed on Craigslist.


I finally finished the snaggle-toothed edged table and attached the top.  I was waiting for divine intervention to tell me another solution.  I did get rid of the blue on it.  It reminded me too much of young girls trying to get people's attention by dying a section of their hair some unusual color.

Looking good.  Reinforced the section between where I took out the swivel movement.  Solid now.

Listed for sale on Craigslist.


We had a great turnout for Liam's game on Saturday.  He won.  No photos of his shots, assists, driving down the lane, menacing the opponents (who play on his team in other sports). Plenty of little faces in this rooting section. Only 6 family members were missing from this impromptu gathering (out of 30-ish).

It was hard to tell whose was who's as the little people kept getting handed off (sports talk).

The kids liked the action-hated the buzzer.

No 2x4's needed here....everyone was paying attention.

As ever,
La Verne
