Random Thoughts #3: LOTR, football, & electronics

Denver Bronco kicker Matt Prater set an NFL record for longest field goal on Sunday (64 yards)!!! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜Ž I’m pretty happy about the Denver Broncos’ football season this year ๐Ÿ˜€

Actually, we still use cassettes on a regular basis. We’d even be using our record player today if we hadn’t had to leave it behind on our move due to lack of space.

I really wish Aragorn and Arwen were in the Hobbit trilogy. Hey, Legolas and Elrond are inโ€”it would make sense. A young, fiery Aragorn, before he got tempered by experience… Also it depends on how much “prelude to the Fellowship” stuff they do, but Aragorn plays a huge part there, catching Gollum and all.

Why are you striving these days?
Why are you trying to earn grace?
Why are you crying?
Let me lift up your face: just don’t turn away.

Why are you looking for love?
Why are you still searching, as if I’m not enough?
To where will you go, child?
Tell me, where will you run?

I’ll be by your side, wherever you fall
In the dead of night, whenever you call
So please don’t fight these hands that are holding you
‘Cause My hands are holding you.

โ€””By Your Side” by Tenth Avenue North

Had “potatoes au gratin” for the first time the other day. My sister is an amazing cook ๐Ÿ™‚

You know what wins football games? “Faster legs and stronger arms.” *nod* Never knew my little brother was so insightful on sports ๐Ÿ˜†

So, I can read and listen to Narnia soundtracks at the same time with no problem. But I can’t do that with Lord of the Rings music – it’s too distracting cuz I keep getting carried away by whatever part of the story the music’s at ๐Ÿ˜•

Had California Pizza Kitchen the other night…lots of $ for a small gourmet pizza…but a nice treat ๐Ÿ™‚

You know you spend too much time studying on your iPad when you’re reading a regular, plain old book made of paper, come across an unfamiliar word, and go to tap-hold it for a definition ๐Ÿ™„

Oh, and shampoo makes an admirable replacement for hand soap in a pinch.

Christmas shopping… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Amazon is thinking of using drones to deliver packages.


Overheard someone say, “Come on, let’s go see The Hobbit.” Best suggestion I’ve heard in a while ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yep, we’re saving to take the family to see it.

Introducing… Random Thoughts!

I thought I’d try posting some Random Thoughts periodically. Just recent musings, or things that happened in the day. Hope you enjoy! Feel free to respond in the comments section! ๐Ÿ˜€

Random observations today from the kids I watch in the daycare where I work.

“Turkeys are pretty.”

Well, these are! Made of dried beans, some colored with food coloring, and lentils. ๐Ÿ˜Ž Handmade by the kindergarteners.





“If it doesn’t have wings, it doesn’t look like a ship.”

Got that right. Guess Star Wars didn’t get that memo ๐Ÿ˜•

“Some people are archeologists.”

Spoken after said kindergartener found a button on the floor. Oh well, even Indiana Jones had to start somewhere, right?

“It’s cold out there.”

Yes. Yes it is. Has been for the past few days. Cold, cloudy, foggy, rainy…and cold. My favorite type of weather ๐Ÿ˜€ Just not always to go out in…

“Jesus died to save people from their sins!”

Take a moment and thank Him for it, won’t you?
