TMI:

Bible in 90 Days:
Day 8. I was struck by a very short phrase in Numbers chapter 5:

If any of the people—men or women—betray the Lord by doing wrong to another person, they are guilty.

This shouldn’t be new to me, right? But I couldn’t help but realize that whenever I—or anyone else—wrongs someone, that’s betraying God. That’s actually kind of frightening if you think about it.

Writing: I posted another "Health and the Writer" post at WriterQuotes, and I also posted a short article on Terry Whalin's new Writing Tip of the Day on my Story Sensei blog.

I also posted another "Write Time" article at WordPraize. And in case you missed it, my review of Calm, Cool, and Adjusted by Kristin Billerbeck is posted at the Fab Four Book Picks blog.

Had my "Sabbath" yesterday. After reading the Old Testament again, I've been feeling convicted to take a personal rest day from my writing. Hopefully it will inspire me to write more today! I spent most of Saturday plotting my story. I hate all the gaping holes I'm seeing. I need writer's duct tape. Somebody needs to invent that.

Diet: Since getting sick, I've gained 3 pounds!!! {Camy sobs into her keyboard} Who knew cough syrup would have so many calories? Well, and I guess the whiskey-honey-lemon-juice mountain cough syrup recipe isn't exactly low-cal (but it really does work).

I did Denise Austin on Friday and Saturday, but not on Sunday. Please God, help me to have discipline to exercise every day the rest of this week.

No Cold Bums toilet seat cover

Captain's Log, Stardate 08.22.2008 I actually wrote out my pattern! I was getting a lot of hits on my infamous toilet seat cover , and I wanted to make a new one with “improvements,” so I paid attention and wrote things down as I made the new one. This was originally based off the Potty Mouth toilet cover , but I altered it to fit over the seat instead of the lid. Yarn: any worsted weight yarn, about 120 yards (this is a really tight number, I used exactly 118 yards. My suggestion is to make sure you have about 130 yards.) I suggest using acrylic yarn because you’re going to be washing this often. Needle: I used US 8, but you can use whatever needle size is recommended by the yarn you’re using. Gauge: Not that important. Mine was 4 sts/1 inch in garter stitch. 6 buttons (I used some leftover shell buttons I had in my stash) tapestry needle Crochet hook (optional) Cover: Using a provisional cast on, cast on 12 stitches. Work in garter st until liner measures

ひとり寿司第22章パート3

「ひとり寿司」をブログに連載します! ひとり寿司 寿司シリーズの第一作 キャミー・タング 西島美幸 訳 スポーツ狂のレックス・坂井 —— いとこのマリコが数ヶ月後に結婚することにより、「いとこの中で一番年上の独身女性」という内輪の肩書を「勝ち取る」ことについては、あまり気にしていない。コントロールフリークの祖母を無視するのは容易だ —— しかし、祖母は最終通告を出した —— マリコの結婚式までにデート相手を見つけなければ、無慈悲な祖母は、レックスがコーチをしている女子バレーボールチームへの資金供給を切ると言う。 ダグアウトにいる選手全員とデートに出かけるほど絶望的なわけではない。レックスは、バイブルスタディで読んだ「エペソの手紙」をもとに「最高の男性」の条件の厳しいリストを作った。バレーボールではいつも勝つ —— ゲームを有利に進めれば、必ず成功するはずだ。 そのとき兄は、クリスチャンではなく、アスリートでもなく、一見何の魅力もないエイデンを彼女に引き合わせる。 エイデンは、クリスチャンではないという理由で離れていったトリッシュという女の子から受けた痛手から立ち直ろうとしている。そして、レックスが(1)彼に全く興味がないこと、(2)クリスチャンであること、(3)トリッシュのいとこであることを知る。あの狂った家族とまた付き合うのはごめんだ。まして、偽善的なクリスチャンの女の子など、お断り。彼はマゾヒストじゃない。 レックスは時間がなくなってきた。いくら頑張っても、いい人は現れない。それに、どこへ行ってもエイデンに遭遇する。あのリストはどんどん長くなっていくばかり —— 過去に掲載済みのストーリーのリンクはこちらです。 *** ********** 父に白い封筒を渡される前から、レックスの心臓は張り裂けていた——冷たい日本海で真っ二つに分かれる氷河のように、耳をつんざくような鋭い音がする。 (あなたを、ワサマタユ・スポーツクラブの男女混合および女子バレーボールチームに受け入れます……) その手紙にきちんと折り目をつけて、封筒の中に戻した。そして、膝を上げて横になっているソファの隣に置かれた、コーヒーテーブルに手紙を落とした。 彼女の入部を伝えるために、その日の午前中、ダレンから電話があった。 「ダレ
