Friday Round-Up - #40

Before ol' man winter could return and smack us with another storm, Mom and I took full advantage of last Saturday's brilliant weather. Yes, I took a day to relax. No working on the Great American Novel. No feverish (and seemingly futile) attempts to paint the back bedroom. Instead we prowled through a Farmer's Market and an Antique Mall. Although we didn't buy a thing, we enjoyed each other's company and the balmy weather.

Speaking of the weather, if you need a little sunshine, pop over to Christian Fiction Online Magazine. Randy Ingermanson a.k.a. Randy Rooney's latest encounter with Sam the Plumber provided a hefty dose of side-splitting humor. Valerie interviewed Liz Curtis Higgs, who appears on the cover, and Jim Rubart illustrates the biggest mistakes authors make with their websites in his article, "Quantum Marketing."

And now, the answer to yesterday's test. Lift your foot, move it clockwise. Draw the number "6" with your right hand, BUT...start with the loop. Since you're moving in the same direction as your foot, it will continue to move clockwise.

Finally, Christa Sterken's short, but powerful, blog post, "Living By Default," will get the wheels turning in your mind.

Enjoy your weekend!

How wonderful to spend a day with your mom! Cherish each moment.

Wish my best friend, my mom, was still living so we could do the things you and your mom did. And two of my favorite things are antique malls and farmers markets. So much fun!

Hi Donna -

Yes, I'm blessed to still have her. For a number of years, we were separated by many miles. Now we live within a half mile of each other. :)

We're also looking forward to yard sale season. I've picked up some great deals over the years.

Blessings,
Susan

It sounds like a great day out with your mom--I like the sound of the places you went:))
My mom and I used to do that together when I lived up in PA and I miss it!

Hi Terri -

Where did you live in PA? Up near Pittsburgh or in the Philly area? Too bad we didn't know each other back then. We could have met for lunch. :)

Blessings,
Susan
