Daffodil day

Although there are no daffodils blooming in our garden yet, I could not resist the bunches that were for sale in the supermarket yesterday.

Now for What I learned this week.

  • I learned on Sunday when you ask kids to write letters to missionary kids in Africa that the boys will write about which football team they support, and the girls will write about their pets, apart from one girl wrote about her favourite shopping centre!

  • In my Tuesday morning group we discussed hospitality, and how we can use our homes, basing our study on Lydia in Acts 16.

  • I learned that mobile phones are great communication devices, even in the home. My husband is in bed recuperating and has phoned me downstairs to talk to me, as I had not heard him calling.

  • I learned I am not cut out to be a nurse!

  • I learned that when you accept to speak (for the first time EVER) to a church ladies group about digital scrapbooking that although you may not have been daunted at the time, that on the day (yes – TODAY) of the talk you wonder why you ever agreed!

  • I also learned that being told “Don’t worry, I am sure there won’t be many more than 50 (Yes – FIFTY!) coming to hear you” somehow has not reassured me.

I will let you know how it goes. What have you learned this week?

    My Mr. and I have communicated via phone paging, thumping the floor (when he’s down below in his office and has misplaced the phone & also via chat on computer. Dropping trails of chocolate always is effective too πŸ™‚

    I’m not such a good nurse, neither… I have to admit.

  9. Such pretty daffodils!!

    I love cell phones too! I love to use my iPod touch too when I’m in bed and my son is on facebook and he should be in bed. I can go on and chat and tell him to get in bed!! Or…I do use the cell phone sometimes too!! Too funny!!
    All I’ve learned is, never to let my dh use my keys for anything, as he will put them in his pocket and go to work, forgetting that I need the, and then not hear his cell phone ringing so I can tell him to drive home and bring them to me!! LOL!!!

  13. I love daffodils! They’re always the first flower to bloom in our yard.

    I learned that it doesn’t matter how often I do laundry, my youngest daughter will still have no pants to wear on Wednesdays. I don’t know why.
