"...make it your ambition to lead a quiet life:
You should mind your own business & work with your hands...."
1 Thessalonians 4:11
I really like these words that Paul spoke to the Thessalonians. I think the world would be a better place if people would follow them. I know when he says to "work with your hands" that he is referring to working to provide for your needs so you do not have to depend on others, but I kind of like to think of it in a crafting sort of way. Such goes the train of thought for a crafter ... lol!
I will certainly be working with my hands today. I have laundry to do & I'll be making a turkey for dinner. A turkey breast actually ... neither John nor I like dark meat. When we lived in Florida we were friends with a couple who only liked the dark meat. It worked well when we would get together to celebrate Thanksgiving : ) I'll also be packing up the food processor I recently purchased so I can return it to the store. It not only doesn't do a very good job as far as shredding goes (it totally pulverizes things into a fairy dust consistency instead), it is very flimsy. When I bought it I had wrapped up my old hand grater & put it in the yard sale box. I got it back out yesterday after trying to shred some parmesan cheese & had John shred it for me. Turned out beautifully. He will be my food processor from now on : )
I'll also be working more with my "doll pattern from hell" project. I'm almost to the point where I can grunge her up & put her in the oven. I will fantasize that I am putting the pattern designer in there ... lol! Oh, wait a minute ... that's not a very Christian thought for a Sunday morning, is it? Okay, I won't engage in that fantasy : )
Heaven knows there's no lack of things I can do here to keep my hands busy. It's going to be another too-hot day so going outside is not an option. I'll take a break now & then to check the blog postings. Maybe I'll even look up cities on Weather.com to see where it's cooler today & fantasize about living there ... a much better fantasy than visualizing that pattern designer closed up in my oven : )
