Our Every Day Choices

"Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time..." ... Ephesians 5:15,16


Poor ol' Tom has a sore throat and cough so there I was at 3:30 this dark, snowy morning making him tea with honey and handing out Vitamin D3 and C pills, water, cough drops and kleenex. 

Like a typical man, he becomes positively helpless when ill. Er hem.

But by 4:00 a.m. I'd discovered this:

Photographer Captures How Differently People Live in Identical Apartments

... and became fully, delightfully awake. 

A Romanian photographer took pictures of nine identically-built apartments below his own, as well as the occupants. Everyone had begun with the same four walls and window, yet how differently their dwellings appear!

Daily we choose to make the most of what we have and are, to use our imagination--or--we make excuses or blame things like Fate, the economy, our past or Great Aunt Bertha.

May we choose wisely on this Thursday.


My five favorites of those rooms, above? In this order: The 5th floor then the 9th, 2nd, 8th, 1st.

114 Money-Saving Ideas

Having been determined to afford to stay home all these decades, lots of these ideas felt like dear old friends.


Forgot to tell you that a few weeks ago Tom and I watched the movie, InterstellarWow. One of the quirkiest, oddest movies, ever. 

Loved it.

Yet at the beginning I did wonder. Thought, "Hmmm...." a few times. Then it pulled me in.  :)
