Memory verse

Here is my memory verse for the 1st, this is a good one! Proverbs 18:21 -The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.

I almost did another one out of Ephesians, 4:25 - "Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen."

I really love both of them, but the Ephesians verse might be too long for my brain to hold onto right now, you know? I haven't been as diligent as I had hoped with my memorizing, so I picked the Proverbs verse since it is pretty close to the same message but a little shorter.

lofty goal

I am making a goal - and for me it's a big one. I don't want want to jinx myself but I don't know truly how good I will do with it! Okay, here goes: I don't want to buy any more books until I've read all the books I already have that I have not read yet. AND - here's the part that might not be possible - no new yarn until I have finished all of my projects in line. Basically, no new projects until I finish what I've started. The only teensy exclusion would be if I happen to be at a yard sale and find a book or a fabulous find and can't pass it up. Because in those situations you can't just go back and buy it later.
This whole thing came about because last week was Spring Break and I was lamenting my lack of Spring Break. And Summer vacation (the 3 month kind). I would really looooooove to have an undetermined amount of time off to just read as much as I can, sew, knit, craft, scrapbook, crochet, garden, do bible studies, ride my get the picture! So, I'm going to make a concentrated effort to take the time I do have off (evenings and weekends) and do the things I want to. I usually end up running around on the weekends - and I'd like that to stop. I'm thinking maybe I can grocery shop after work or some such thing to save weekends for cool stuff.
