Ho-hum May

Wow. May has been a really poor month for blogging.  It started out being too busy to blog, and then is wrapping up with being not busy enough to blog (nothing to write home about).

The only thing I can think of to blog about is that a week ago I decided that I would learn to crochet.  I am working on a hat that might be too small for even an infant's head.  I am gradually making it bigger (I just crochet so tightly!), but it will probably be a foot tall when it is done.  I am a pretty slow crocheter, so what would take an average person a couple of hours has taken me days.  But still, I count it as progress considering I didn't know how to crochet at all last Tuesday, and now I have a miniature, very tightly wound hat sitting on my coffee table.

Hideous or not, when it's done, I will try to remember to post a picture.  If it is truly hideous, I will probably also post a picture of the pile of unraveled yarn (best thing about crocheting is: if you mess something up, you just unravel it and start over. No resources wasted).

Top 10 Reasons Looking for a church to regularly attend is like looking for the person you will marry.

1. There has got to be some initial attraction, that may or may not have to do with looks, but it might not be a deciding factor for sticking around.
2.  Sometimes you just know whether or not it is "the one" right away.
3.  Others, you need to stay with for awhile before you know.
4.  A lot of times, you stay longer than you should with the wrong one, just because you are happy to at least be somewhere, and you don't want to hurt anyone's feelings, particularly if you've been with them for a while.
5.  Down the road, would you like to have children with this person/church?
6.  You need to put in some effort too, relationships go both ways.
7.  What is the fellowship like?
8.  You might ask around a bit before getting involved with a particular person/church you don't know much about.
9.  It takes extra work if there is a clash of cultures and/or expectations.
10.  None are perfect, all have various flaws

Sorry. This really isn't a "funny" list.  We are currently looking for a church to go to.  We went to one this morning that we liked, but we would have to visit a few more times to really be sure.  It's so hard because where one church just doesn't cut it, another one does....but then that other one just doesn't cut it in a different way.  It is tiring.

A church in Toronto.  Not the church we attend.

Three haikus.

Two dreams to follow.
One might hinder the other.
Why not just do both?


It is a shame that
Kids these days don't have any
Chores to go home to.
