Organization Part 1 — Getting Started

Becoming an organized person requires both a plan and determination. But everything starts at the beginning. Organization Part 1 — Getting Started will help you begin your journey to an organized home. When our kids were little I was super-organized. Our boys were only 18 months apart so I didn’t have time to waste. Two babies in diapers is a tremendous motivator to save time and steps. Some people thought I may have taken it too far; even my spices were alphabetized. But getting little ones ready for everything from bath and bed to a vacation out of town takes organization. As the kids got older and I was working outside the home some things slipped a bit.

Gardening on My Mind

For the couple of days the weather has been so much milder that I am getting excited about spring! I’ve been walking around singing a song in my head. Well, my version of a song anyway. The melody is Georgia on my Mind but the title of my song is Gardening on my Mind!

Square pegs in round holes

Brilliant!

Salvageable

The expression “a square peg in a round hole” is used to describe a misfit—a person who does not belong in the place or situation where he or she is. I suspect the picture many people have of a square peg in a round hole comes from children’s toys which consist of several objects of different shapes—a square, a circle, a triangle, a star—with a corresponding hole for each object. The objects are carefully sized so that they will fit only through the hole where they are meant to fit.

When I was a boy, I read that carpenters in America often used to put square pegs into round holes. There were several good reasons to do this. I never saw square pegs in round holes, though, until I was an adult. A farmer was giving me and my family a tour of his farm, and he came to a…

What Today was Supposed to be Like

The weekend didn’t go quite as I had planned. And because the weekend didn’t go as planned today isn’t going to either. What today was supposed to be like is going to be a little more rushed or a little more laid back. I haven’t decided. After all, it’s not quite 6 a.m. and I’ve only had one (massive) cup of coffee!

Thy Rod and Thy Staff They Comfort Me

The 23rd Psalm has always been a favorite of mine. It’s full of promise and joy. Hope and happiness should be what people take from it. But one thing I’ve noticed is that people misinterpret part of it and misuse it. “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” People have linked the end of verse 4 with punishment and that’s incorrect. Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me was understood by earlier generations because they understood the purpose of the rod and the staff.
