Life Right Now

By 11:15:00 , ,

Well this post is happening for a number of reasons one of them being I can't access some documents I would like because of computer problems and also I can't do anything with photos today because they must not be touched while said problems are fixing. So here is a slightly photoless post on my life right now...

Quoting.. Or more exactly remembering and finding quotes . I start with this because that is what I have been doing in the time closest to now apart form deciding what we are going to have for tea..

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” 
― J.R.R. Tolkien

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” 
― C.S. Lewis

“If we find ourselves with a desire that nothing in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that we were made for another world.” 
― C.S. Lewis

“There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” 
― C.S. Lewis

“The homemaker has the ultimate career. All other careers exist for one purpose only - and that is to support the ultimate career. ” 
― C.S. Lewis

The wonder of living is held within the beauty of silence, the glory of sunlight, the sweetness of the air we breathe, the quiet strength of earth and the love that lies at the very root of all things.
― Unknown 

A gentle word, like summer rain, may soothe some heart and banish pain. What joy or sadness often springs, from just the simple little things!
― Willa Hoey

And that is only a few quotes.....

Smelling... This sense startled me this morning by informing me of great quantities of smoke outside.... from nearby bushfires there are six burning within 50km of here though none really close.

Seeing... The smoke on the western horizon, discouraging the blue sky.

Realizing... That one of the fires is quite close to some friends of mine, but luckily the fires are all said to be fairly safe and mostly under control.

Hearing... A magpies song

Moving... all these words around to the order I want them in today... which is what ones I can think to write something for.. and 

Deleting... some that I don't want to do today.

Googling... "What do camels smell like" For a story I am writing I couldn't really find anything very useful though so I went with "The pungent camel smell hit me as I went through the gate"

Watching on You Tube.... Videos of camels running... also for my story. 

Trying... To think of seven things to be thankful for, which is quite easy so 

Succeeding.... goes next, I am doing the 2014 KBR Thankful challenge this month like I did last year, which means I have to think of seven things each day to be thankful for and write them down, it is quite enjoyable.

Writing.... Well that should be obvious... this... this word here... well I was but now I have finished that word and am writing these words instead, because they were the words that came next...

Reading...  Lots of books like; Worship Matters by Bob Kauflin and books by another author I have just found Robin Hobb  and I am currently reading her "Farseer Trilogy" 

Wearing... Holes in my socks... I don't know how I do it but almost every pair of my socks had at least one sock that has at least one hole in it...

Getting.... rid of the rest of the "ING" things that I could have answered/written something for. So now I am

Reaching... the end of this post well I have reached it I suppose... and sadly it is photo less.... For reasons stated at the start.

What have you been up to today?
