A String of Recent Unrelated Thoughts from the Mind of Jaibee (Also Known as “Catching Up”)

Yeah, yeah, long title. Deal. πŸ™‚ I just didn’t want to have a billion blog postings, so I am going to squish a bunch in here. πŸ™‚

While I loathe the coming of the coldness, I like watching the leaves turn colors. So, I will get a couple of photos of the leaves every year, but not too many, since my poor Floridian blood just can’t take it to be outside for too long. πŸ™‚ For your viewing pleasure in the warmth and comfort of your ?desk, I bring you:

Last week (see how behind I am?), I took a few photos of our church, as they have recently redone an area in front between the main church entrance and the entrance to the pastoral center. I think technically, they are two “reflection gardens,” one for Mary and the other for the unborn/victims of abortion. Very pretty. I like how this turned out:

Just don’t get too excited, while I *did* do all 5 loads, I haven’t yet managed to put them away quite yet, but I *did* manage to fold them yesterday, and they are currently sitting in my bedroom in neat little stacks.

Now, I am not a fan of bugs in general. They usually creep me out. But, when I came home late on Friday, I saw this guy at my back door, and decided to leave him there, since — obviously — he was praying for me. And I can use all the prayers that I can get right now. He graced me with his presence until the following day, when I could photograph him. Shortly after I took his picture, I came outside again and he was gone — just like that.

Final topic: here’s a picture of my bed (now, don’t get all excited, I’m not inviting you in):
We got this comforter as a wedding present, so now that it has outlasted the marriage, it is showing signs of wear:
So, I finally broke down and bought myself a new comforter, because I didn’t think that the old one would stand up to another go in the washing machine:
See how amazingly, uncharacteristically girly it is? But, it makes me smile in it’s optimistic, girly way.
