Continuing with the Bible citing from my last post, I will add . . .
King James Version – Genesis 2:2-3:
2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
All this repetition makes me think God really, really (!) wanted to make a point about all the work he had made and how he needed a rest.
Suddenly we two are back in sync. I needed a rest too! Of course, me living 6000 years later in a more modern period after the Great Flood and the invention of weekends, I took both the sixth and the seventh day off to rest. And then I added on the eighth for good measure, because . . . heck! Why not? It’s summer!
On the Ninth Day, however, I was fully back with The Plan – the one exception was the blogging part.
And my elder daughter was to blame for that.
It pains me to say this but she . . . but she . . . she had the AUDACITY to . . . to . . . TURN 18!! And to add insult to injury, she is . . . she is . . . TAKING HER DRIVING TEST TOMORROW!!
There. I have said it.
I hope you will all understand why, when it comes to blogging, I am just phoning it in today. All I will add are the links to earlier posts which should suffice to explain everything about my state of mind:
P.S. My daughter loved the box of treasures I had been saving since her babyhood (mentioned in the post above). At the end of the evening she asked me where I thought she should keep it. I offered to keep storing it in my closet for her and she immediately thought that was a good idea. She may be 18 now, but she still likes the idea that Mom will take care of certain things for her. That was a gift from her to me today.
