Friday Fill-Ins 2011-7

1. New experiences and possibilities have been on my mind the last few days; I think this winter funk is somewhat inspiring me to look ahead.

2. In an effort to keep my cardio exercise exciting, I will sometimes take unexpected turn on a daily walk through the city. (It also gives me an excuse to look at all the lovely architecture of the old buildings here in town.)

3. I’m looking forward to losing these last three or so pounds. (I hope by this time next week, or maybe two weeks, I’ll be able to say “199, baby!”)

4. The challenges of raising twin boys is something I never would have imagined.

5. Try to find a delicious food that fills your belly completely for less than 300 calories; I haven’t found one yet.

6. The fact that I can lift a car full of baked beans with two clowns sitting on the roof using only my left earlobe is what’s extraordinary about me.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to an evening home with the family, tomorrow my plans include working at the office and maybe a rehearsal for “Hello Dolly,” and Sunday, I want to have had my Sunday School lesson prepared!

Friday Fill-Ins 2011-05

1. We are on this earth because we are to fear God and keep his commands; for this is the whole duty of man (Ecclesiastes 12:13) .

2. I’m really looking forward to the experience of swimming in the indoor pool on this cold February day in Maine.

3. One of the hardest things for me to learn was Spanish; in fact, I never really did get it.

4. I’m going to upgrade my computer to Windows 7 this weekend; I hope I downloaded the right wireless drivers so I can get connected.

5. I remember The Maine, The Alamo, one time at band camp, you, the kind of September when grass was green–as yes, I remember it well.

6. Spending quality time with my family is one of the best parts of my life.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to making pizza for the kids, tomorrow my plans include a gig with Three Button Deluxe (if it doesn’t get canceled due to weather) and Sunday, I want to get things in order for a Valentines Day surprise for Susan!
