Two Posts in One

1. Fay Came to Visit
Tropical Storm Fay made her way to our state and brought bunches of rain, wind, power outages and tornado warnings. Thankfully, we kept our power and didn't have any damage at our house, but I know a lot of people who did lose power for a while. I put my dogs in out of the storm overnight Saturday night. There is one little dog left at the house next door, some kind of poodle type dog. It rained all day long Saturday and the poor little thing had no dog house and no shelter during the storm. I couldn't bear to see it sitting in the middle of the yard out in that rain.
This morning Fay came back to dump a whole bunch more rain and caused tornado warnings right when everyone was driving to work. It's been interesting, but at least we don't have the drought any longer. And our temperatures have been so much better this summer than last summer when we had like 12 consecutive days over 100. I don't think the temps have even reached 100 this summer. Praise the Lord!

2. How I Spent My Time
This is just something I was thinking about when I was at the hairdresser's getting my hair highlighted tonight. I was thinking about all the time I spend on looking a certain way. This morning I spent about an hour and a half showering, fixing hair, putting on makeup, etc. Tonight I spent almost two hours at the salon getting my hair done, and later I will spend about 30 minutes on the treadmill. That's ridiculous!! When today is done I will have spent nearly 4 hours on trying to look good!
How much time did I spend today on my spiritual self -- reading the Bible and praying? Just something to think about.

I sure understand what you are saying. I won't touch upon the hair thing right now. LOL! It's just something I won't have to worry about for a while.

Sure something to think about.

Ouch! Number two did step on my toes. I had told my father in law that I read self help books. He had told me that if I spent more time reading my bible and less time reading self help literature, I could be a much better Christian.

I hate it when he's right.

Cliff, I know what you mean! I stepped on my own toes when I was thinking about how I spent my time!

We had lower temps and rain from Fay also, nothing like the storms you had though.

I've thought about number 2 before. Ouch is right!!
