We will now resume blog silence.

He Awose

This is one of the cutest things I have ever seen

Enjoy 🙂

(I edited my post because I feel  it was unkind of me to criticize someone that way.)

A Happy Anniversary :)

Aren’t they pretty? 🙂

We are going out for the day to do some errands and visit a couple touristy places here in town we haven’t been to yet and then we get ‘chinese’ takeout for dinner so I don’t have to cook (Can I admit that that is my favourite part?)

‘The Cranky Jar’

Proverbs 15: 1 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

cranky jar

My husband and I have started a new habit. Each time one of us is snappy, sarcastic or insulting – whether in jest or in irritation we are to put a penny in it. We had been talking about doing this for a few days because I am seeing that it is a serious problem in our relationship. Oh, not that we fight constantly, although we do fight a lot, but we are continuously making snippy little comments at each other – they are often funny right now and it is hard to stay angry long, but I am noticing that it seems to be all we do and it is taking over our communication slowly. I feel worn out by it and long to have a kinder relationship. I fear that it will deteriorate us very quickly – I have heard it described once as planting little seeds of divorce; they start out small but soon smother the relationship. We are seeing evidence of its damage in other relationships, versus those we know of who don’t play this game.

The night we started the jar we had been semi-quarreling / semi-joking over something stupid and feeling frustrated, I brought the idea up again. He stomped off, grabbed a marker and a jar from recycling and drew up the little picture, plunked a fistful of change in and thumped it onto the shelf. We now have over $14 in it because we then kept childishly tossing handfuls of money in to cover past comments the other was bringing up. LOL! *sigh*

Thankfully though we have only put in 2 pennies since.

It is a habit we have both learned from our parents and society around us but it is one we need to break before it breaks us. The money will go to a charity when we feel the habit has been broken. Maybe one for domestic abuse.

I have been feeling a little bummed because I had no readers this week.

And then I just now clicked on a link to get to my blog instead of coming in via my bookmarks  and was told I couldn’t read it until I signed in ?!

I don’t know how or when I managed to do it but I privatized my blog.  I think (hope?) I fixed it.

Two men were stranded on a desert island. One was very worried about their predicament while the other seemed to be enjoying the situation.

“How can you be so happy?” the one asked the other. “We may never get off this island.”

“I make $100,000 a year.” the other man said.

“What does that have anything to do with us getting out of here?” asked the first.

” I tithe,” the second man said. “My pastor will come looking for me”
