I ended up listening to some broadcasts from my favorite ministry for the last three hours. Each broadcast is about 20 minutes long. In between, I ran around and did something in the house. I HOPE I now have reasonably clean windows in the french doors on the far side of the room. I won't know for sure until daylight hits them tomorrow morning. I cleaned the inside windows of both doors and the outside windows of the door on the right. By the time I got done with that, it was dark and cold outside so I'll have to catch the outside of the other door tomorrow.
I also ran around with the feather duster while listening and managed to cover a bit more than 1/4 of the room. I'll try to continue that tomorrow. I think I am finally getting the idea behind this feather duster thing. It doesn't replace in depth dusting; rather it delays it and makes it easier. It won't pick up all the dust, particularly if it's heavy, but it picks up some. And the next time I go over the same surface it'll pick up some more. And, if I missed a spot last time, chances are I'll catch it this time and eventually it will all look reasonably clean. At least that's my current theory, LOL. One neat thing about it is that I can reach things with the feather duster that I'd have to climb around on top of chairs or other pieces of furniture to reach with a cloth.
I've had some fun today putting various kits on sale. I think I ended up putting 4 on sale at various times throughout the day. I didn't sell a whole lot, but I "stirred the pot". I have a very good friend who is in real estate. He used to claim it was important to "stir the pot". Meaning, keep your name out there--stay in front of people's faces. So, I advertised my little sales here on the blog, in the ACOT forum, on my FB account, on the HotFlashDesigns FB account, and on the ACOT FB account. So, maybe a few people saw some things they liked and they'll remember my name next time!
There is a saying or a story about a woman who was such a powerful pray-er that when she woke up in the morning and put her feet on the floor, Satan groaned and told all his little demonic friends "Oh, no, she's up again." Well, I used to pray that I could be like that. I think with my 3 hours of listening to broadcasts this afternoon, my prayer life just went up a few notches. I don't know if Satan will run and hide, but I do think he might take notice when I get up tomorrow morning, LOL. This is the second sermon/series of sermons I've wandered into in the last couple of weeks on the authority of the believer. I expect I'll have an opportunity to show what I've learned soon........... That's usually the way it works. God teaches the lesson, then He gives me a chance to show if I was paying attention. I was! And I plan to listen to that series again--starting tomorrow.
Do you remember I bought some jarred pesto sauce the last time I went to Costco? I was concerned that perhaps I should not have spent the money. It cost $7.99. Well, I had pasta with pesto sauce tonight for dinner. I've lost count, but I think I can safely say this was at least the 5th meal out of that jar. And, it is still half full. Tonight was the first time I haven't gotten too much sauce in my little bowl. It is really rich stuff and too much can get to you pretty fast. It was good to have just a little and I enjoyed it.
While the pasta was cooking, I used the "little minutes" to work some more on that countertop hot spot in the kitchen. It's starting to look pretty good..... I didn't want to leave the kitchen to put anything in another room for fear I'd forget I had pasta cooking and wander back into the kitchen half an hour later to find boiled mush or burnt up pot. So, a few trips moving things to other rooms and it'll be done.
I did bring some books in and sort through them. Some of what I found I've been throwing away. Joe taught an adult Sunday School class in his church in CA for YEARS. Some of what I am finding are his study notes on various books of the Bible that they worked their way through. I'm afraid, in that they are HIS notes, they wouldn't mean much to me so I am pitching those. Truthfully, sometimes my own notes don't make much sense to me later on, so I think it is best to get rid of these notebooks.
Well, I've had it for today. Tomorrow I'll get up and start all over again. Goodnight!
