Miracles

One: Hubby replaced the empty toilet paper roll with a new one. Even threw the old tube away. He missed the trashcan (apparently he took the phrase 'throw away' literally), but he tried. I was impressed, and it isn't easy to impress me at 4:30 in the morning, especially when I am unable to fall asleep until 2.

Two: It is raining, and for the second time this week. This is a wonderful and welcome sight in an area where the geese appear to be walking on water because parts of the lake are so low.

Three: Our one-footed redwing blackbird and our baldheaded cardinal made it through another winter and are back at the feeders. The cardinal is even regaining a few feathers on his head.


OK, so they probably aren't really miraculous happenings...except for the first one. That really is a miracle.

I would consider the first one a mircle in my family too.

It seems I am now banned from your site. How come? Have I been bad?

Blogger has been having some tantrums lately, Nalani. It's been banning everyone everywhere lately.

Just smack it and tell it to play nice. ;-)

OK, I'll just remember to smack when it needs it.

I don't understand the knitty jargon, but do indeed get the part about a man and a new roll of toidy paper!

I would have thought geese walking on water might be a miracle ;)

I must admit I suffer from TP roll dysfunction myself.
But I live alone, so I'm allowed ;)

Re: Manly abilites

Q: How many men does it take to change a roll of toilet paper?

A: We don't know. It's never been done.
