little bitty journal.

can a rambling sparrow keep it simple and short?
dunno.  made warm honey cornbread, yum.  had a cup of chili & a bowl of celery for dessert.  ate one piece of cornbread too many.......the danger of baking. it was crazy good.....the best! ......from a mix.  whoa.
fell out around 3 am last night........didn't manage to rise and shine until 6:30 PM today.  yikes, gotta turn this around ......next week is dentist & rheumy time.  got friday/sat/sun/mon to get back to late morning risings........ok, that is the immediate goal.
sam is about to go to los angeles for his annual big music conference/exhibition.  it's one of those down and dirty kinds of trips........take the red-eye.......run your legs off and wing your way back to georgia.  he's going somewhere else the next week-end but i already forgot where.  nice.
Grandpa fell today........don't know details as yet. He fainted.......been checked into the hospital.  Asked Sam if there was any head injury,etc......Sam said he just got the call from his Dad......hope he lets me know what is what.
Pray for Grandpa and Grandma too.......they are so good together, but separate them and it's hard for them.
gonna take on Tom Sawyer and then if the wind holds plan to read Huck Finn next........in the mood to read To Kill a Mockingbird, but I can't find it..........I read that book at least once a year. 
my clean laundry is now dry and ready to fold..........so i have my orders to fold WARM GOOD SMELLING COTTON.......which i find to be a blessing on a chilly January evening.......!!!!!!!! how'd i do?  not to long, not too short.......praying for you         
Dear Heavenly Father,
Watch oer the dearest friends I know
Keep them in your tender hold
Lift them up when they feel weak
Hold them close and give them ease
In Jesus Name Amen.

You\'ll turn the nights and days around. It\'s so hard when that happens.. What did we do with our kids when they did that? Um, I think we elimined naps, right? I don\'t remember. But I do know what a messed up sleep cycle is! Believe me. There is no way I can get up before eleven. It\'s a problem for those ten o\'clock appointments.

Lovely, gentle prayer for all of us, Ruthie!! I pray that you will feel lifted up when you feel weak!!!!

Big, gentle, switch days to night sleep....hugs! xoxo

I haven\'t read To Kill A Mockingbird in a long while. Loved the movies too and always wanted to be called Scout!! Hope that Grandpa is okay and Grandma too.Your dinner of chili,cornbread and celery sounded De-Lish!! Yum! I can\'t eat chili anymore doesn\'t agree with me darn it...but glad you can enjoy. Nothing better than freshly washed and dried laundry! My kitties love to lay in the basket of warm and freshly folded clothes. Wishing Sam a safe trip and Grandpa a quick healing. and greenies

Ruthie your dinner sounded good....but like kneeDeep, I can\'t eat chili anymore. Spicy foods mess me up & mess up my mouth. Cuz of the Sjogren\'s ...it\'s gets all sore & rough in the roof of my mouth.
Wishing Sam safe travels.
Hope Grandpa will be OK. It must be hard on both Grandma & Grandpa. Keeping them in my prayers. Sounds like you have a little energy tonight. Today I had none. Got up at 10:00 am & was back in bed at noon - 3:00pm. The only think I did today was make dinner. Faced my face & brushed my teeth. My hair needs to be done. Haven\'t washed it since last Monday. I have 3 dr appts next week...Rheumy/bone density, primary care dr, see the surgeon.
Thank you for the lovely prayer. Sending a prayer back at ya. Love ya xo

Praying for Grandpa and Grandma as they face injury and separation. And a safe trip for Sam, too. Your cornbread and chili dinner sounds delish! I hope you enjoy your reading list - all great stuff.

Celery for dessert? am i missing something here? lol.

There\'s not much better than chili and the smell of fresh laundry in January is there? We made a big batch of chili and cornbread too. We used some homemade canned tomato juice in it and wow, was that good. Like sunshine in a jar! Hope your grandparents are OK. Getting old is not for sissies.

Praying for blessings for you today!
