On way to Guará

On the way to Guará Wednesday evening, I took some cloud shots. I had to wait for a good shot, and by that time the formation had changed. The clouds were a long way away, too. Didn’t turn out anything like I’d hoped. Better luck next time.

Where is he?

He was supposed to have been here at 8:30 a.m. Then at 1:15 p.m. Still no sign of the technoguy to help me figure out why I can’t access D drive in DOS. I can get to A, but not to D. They tinkered with it some time ago, but this is the first time I tried to print out my mag labels in my ancient address program.

So I’m sitting here with a magazine waiting for labels.

Joel gone for weekend

Joel is spending the night tonight in Atibaia, with Christian friends there, then they all go tomorrow to Campinas for some church event. They’ll spend the night there, go to church in the morning there, then to the new church at Atibaia in the afternoon. He should be back Sunday night.

He apparently didn’t want a repeat of my TTotal course. Wonder why? 😉

Yesterday I finished

The Jungle Book I, by Rudyard Kipling. Kids’ book? Yeah, but not a bad read for adults. Absolutely nothing to do with the movie, a kiddie version far removed from the original flavor of the book.

Tomorrow a big day

Tomorrow and the next Saturday I give my Total Transformation course here in SJC. I pray it will be a good moment for the church here. The hours weren’t nailed down until last Sunday, which was not good. That may have a negative effect on attendance. Dunno.

Patience, my friend

Yeah, I know it’s simple, no logo, etc., but hey! I just got it! Have to accessorize as we go. But just look under the hood … isn’t she a beaut!

Bowling, anyone?

This is supposed to be something of a day off for me, but I’ve been running hither and yon for payments, including a [choke!] stop in a bank. Then trying to get my PC to access D drive in DOS to print out labels through my ancient address program. Technoguy comes in the morning to check this new problem.

So … I’ve been working on all this today.

Make it a night off. Vicki and kids and I are going to go bowling tonight. They’re on their way now …

Fore! (oops! wrong sport)

Reading as of late

As a distraction from work and relaxation, I read works not related to what I do. In the past, I’ve read Clancy, Grisham, and others of their ilk. Lately, for lack of more modern fiction, I’ve turned to older authors.

A few weeks ago, I read through the original Alice in Wonderland. Then a play of Ibsen’s. Now I’m over halfway through Don Quixote, but I stopped for a while to zip through C.S. Lewis’s A Horse and His Boy, which I finished yesterday.

This morning I picked up DQ again. Joel had read an excerpt of his for his school, so I started the unabridged edition, which we have in our home collection.

Shortly after that, Joel rented the video, and we watched it at home. That dampened my enthusiasm to finish the book, but I plod on, like a valiant knight errant.
