Yet although I'd read this before, I just couldn't get past 6 pages because the cover felt all wrong. Jean and Johnny was written in 1959 (an excellent year, indeed, hint, hint), but that book cover! So dreadfully 1980's. Or 70's, whatever. Ew.
And ok, I get why book covers are updated--young folks (and old) supposedly won't even open a book if the cover is dated. Judging a book by its cover--it's still rampant today, sadly.
We're only human and all that, I guess--and here we thought we'd come so far.
Not for the first time, either, I simply had to order a more honest, true-to-the-book's-heart copy. Which yes, is probably a reverse type of cover-judging. Alas. --
But wow, what a difference. This time the book (an old hardcover copy) 'went down easy' because the cover belonged to the words inside--and to me, that just makes more sense.
Think I'm wacky? Well, thanks to the Internet, I discovered whole crowds of us behave this way. So there. 😄
These (troubled) days, people whine about how, online, we're all so different, but me? The Internet introduces me to kindred spirits galore, ones I'd never have otherwise met this side of Heaven. And how lovely to feel like I fit-in.
And isn't it far more pleasant to meditate upon our similarities rather than our differences? I believe so.
See this bathroom?
I've not been able to shake it from my head--so--it's the new goal for my own bathroom. In my own style, of course. Probably these walls are white in real life, but I'd like to paint mine a palest pink. A huge help is that everything currently in my bathroom will look pretty surrounded by pink. No need to buy all new stuff.
I'd also love to replace our vanity with one similar, above, but let's not all hold our breath regarding that, ok?
The main thing is that now I have a plan. Rarely does anyone go anywhere meaningful without a plan.
Sammy The Cat is improving! He seemed to begin eating better immediately after you began praying(!) So cool.
Your prayers are still so welcome, though. Thank-you!
Did you know that HGTV's Good Bones is back? I appreciate how this mother-daughter team takes horribly-treated houses and turns them into gorgeous homes for new families to love. Happy sigh.
