Let us put by some hour of every day for holy things...

Think on th' eternal home,
The Saviour left for you;
Think on the Lord most holy, come
To dwell with hearts untrue:
So shall ye tread untired His pastoral ways,
And in the darkness sing your carol of high praise.

--from Keble's The Christian Year, Thoughts in Verse

ZZZZZzzzzz.....

 The surge of energy I reported a few days ago has dwindled away and I have to admit to nodding off on the couch during last night's Olympic broadcast. Well, I'll chalk it up to a beauty sleep.

 



We had wild, gusting winds most of yesterday afternoon and I even woke from a sound sleep last night hearing some massive gusts slamming against the house, and the weatherman tells us that was the "baby storm" and we're getting the Big Brother tonight. That means a probable blackout so I may not be able to post for a bit. So this will be a quick entry and I'll show you those dolls I mentioned later on.

Meanwhile, I thought you might enjoy looking at a few dubious Olympic items I've found for sale while perusing Etsy. (If you're the seller and you're offended, please feel free to make fun of my stuff in retaliation. I am, after all, a woman who makes and offers crochet poodle toilet paper cozies for sale. You'll find plenty of scope for mockery.) And I'm told all publicity good publicity...
