Good results...

Hallellujah! Got back a "normal" report on my mammography, for those of you who have been sitting on the edge of your proverbial seats waiting to hear, lol. Thanks for your prayers!

I'm sitting in the library, in my usual hurry to get some errands done, so this will be short. I just finished Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortensen and highly recommend it! I learned a lot about the history of the conflict in Afghanistan and Pakistan, along with the history of the people. Greg did some amazingly difficult things to bring education to a lot of the impoverished children of these countries, and his charity (Central Asia Institute) continues to do this good work. He's retired, but still involved.

I've now embarked on The First American: The Life and Times of Benjamin Franklin. It's a lot to read, and I'll have to decide how interested I am. It's had some interesting sections, and a few not so interesting. I found some quotes from it in The Last Child in the Woods, which whetted my appetite. Hopefully, I'll enjoy learning about Ben. :)
I'm off to choose some movies to check out. I hear that I'll be surrounded by ATVers this weekend and I may need some noise to drown them out. But,  honestly, with the temps as they are I suspect they won't be spending a lot of time outside where I'll be able to hear them. I'm thinking some National Treasure or Indiana Jones? Ha ha. Just a hankering at the moment. Maybe some popcorn and hot chocolate.

Y'all have a hygge weekend!
Blessings and shalom to everyone! :)


  1. Nice to hear your results came back fine.
    I hope you find lots of movies to drown out any ATVers. They sure can make a racket.
    Have a pleasant weekend.

  2. That's great news, Lisa! God bless you.

  3. Popcorn and hot chocolate with a movie is the BEST :) Enjoy! I hope you don't have too many noisy neighbors :( And so thankful for your good report from the doctor. That's wonderful!!

  4. Thanks for some other magnificent post. Where else could anyone get that type of information in such an ideal means of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I am at the look for such information.


Thanks for dropping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
