Attending Seminar

(Parenthetical/Technical statement--It seems that Blogger had some sort of header-picture-trouble and my header picture is little. I'll change the picture and see if it works better. Not all computers get the little picture)

Now to the Seminar...

DH and I have been attending a Seminar at a near-by church and tonight is the last installment.

It last 4 and 1/2 hours per night. By the time we get home we're sooo tired. Taking notes is very wearing. (actually sitting for 2 hours at a time is very wearing) This seminar includes two different speakers each. The first 'hour' speaker is easy to hear--speaking from the Scriptures. But the 'second' hour guy is FULL of 'another gospel' and it is very heavy on the heart. I believe that the church people are regretting--to some extent--the 'second' speaker. Oh, well...The Lord does say: "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. " 1 Jo 4:1

I have not knitted or quilted or sewed since last week. The seminar has occupied the entire evening leaving all the household doing to the morning and afernoon hours.
Enough explanation.

Now, regarding house plants--which live outdoors in the spring and summer. I have found that if the plant is underwatered (sigh...) the leaves become dusty; and who wants to dust leaves?!

I discovered this significant piece of information, because I did not water my upstairs plants as often as I should have. I "had" to dust the leaves, well, because!

Keep the plants thoroughly watered, to avoid this extra chore. To *thoroughly water* place the plant in a bucket of water, or sink, or other container. Fill the bucket/sink/or other half full of water. Place the potted plant in the water. Pour water into the potted plant, so that the water is 'flooding' the pot. At this point the air in the dirt will come up as bubbles. When the bubbles stop, the plant is thoroughly watered.

Better go put the last load of laundry in, and start preparing dinner. We are having left over hamburgers, and potato chips--for a side dish--ok, don't laugh. The hamburger is from an 'organic' cow, the lettuce is green (hm!) and one last slice of our very last tomato! The potato chips are: Ruffles and Art's Originals. We have Hellman's mayonaise and Heinz ketchup, and Aldi-brand-mustard. Those are our favorite *not-so-very-healthy* condiments. We also have Aldi dill slices and Vidalia onions [very thinly sliced]

I'll leave you with this:

"And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads" Rev 13:15

In His hands, ^__^
