Steph won!

Steph of won the contest in the post below.

I numbered all 10 answers and asked Mr. P (Who is blind and therefore couldn't cheat on this, but he doesn't cheat anyway) to pick a number between 1 and 10. He said the number corresponding to Steph's answer.

I appreciated all who answered and enjoyed everyone of them.

So, I skipped King David because I've misplaced a couple of tapes from my KJV audio Bible, and took up again in 1Kings1. I'll listen to the tapes when I run across them. There is an awful lot of smiting going on.

When, oh when, will people learn to stop worshiping false gods and killing their own children (see references to molech). My false god seems to be food. and pride and... serotonin? That's the "happiness"hormone. Eating carbs stimulates it.

So, congrats to Steph and forgive my tedious confessions.

God bless us, every one.♥P

Would Jesus Blog? and Giveaway

I'm open to other opinions, especially His, but at first thought, I don't think so. He really is the Great Communicator and, now, wouldn't need to blog. I think He is quite good at communicating supernaturally.

Back then, I don't think so because He didn't come to the Gentile world.

Any opinions?

Since no one is answering, here's an incentive. Answer the Jesus Blog question and get a chance to win a $5 gift certificate from P and P Homemades on Etsy. (If there is any really bad stuff in your answer I won't publish it.)

Patti Panda

She wants to be an astronaut when she grows up, so is in the treasury.

I'm now into Judges, and have read about Deborah. Deteuronomy put me to sleep, I fear. Maybe I was just sleepy.

I'm meeting many fine people on the social network sights. It's lovely. I just haven't figured it all out yet. :(

God bless us, every one.

The Book

To keep a record of my reading, I'm in Deuteronomy.

In Numbers, I was again amazed, not to say amused, that God would tell Moses to anoint the priest' right ear (head, in another place) right thumb, and right big toe. I finally got around to asking Mr. P about it. He knows a lot more about the Bible than I do.

It's to anoint what they thought, what they did, and how they walked.

Lord God, anoint my head, my right thumb, and my right toe.

God bless us, every one.

stolen pizza dough recipe

DHElegance says:
It's for pizza dough, it's really quick and easy.

3 cups all purpose flour
1 (.25 oz) package active dry yeast
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp white sugar
1 cup warm water

1. Combine flour, salt, sugar, and yeast in a large bowl. Mix in oil and warm water. Spread out on a large pizza pan. Top as desired.
2. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 25 minutes.


There is no need to wait for it to rise, it will do that while baking. You can flavor it however you want!
Enjoy :)

I made it through Genesis and in Exodus Moses has conversed with the burning bush. What wonderful physics is associated with the one and only I AM.

Happiness and Fun

The fun spring cap above matches the fun spring scarf. Both have really nice ribbons attached.

The happy emotion icon pillow is the second in the series. The third is more than half finished.

Our van occasionally doesn't start. Recently, one of the occasions, has us worried because the battery is fine. We can fix it next month, but in the meantime I'm riding little buses around town. It's better than walking. sighs.

God bless all those in tornadoes, mudslides, earthquakes, legal storms, and the homeless.

Since last I posted

This is an angry icon pillow. It's the first of a series of emotion pillows. These will have many application, from simply fun to teaching youngster who are clueless regarding other peoples' feeling.

Then, in P and P Vintage, there is a BIG teapot. It holds a bit more than two quarts. Even more than two liters.

I finished a couple of other projects tonight and will share photos as soo as the Sun shines.

I'm not as far along in The Book as I had hoped. As of now, I'm in Gen. 26/

God bless us every one, especially the homeless and the starving/dehydrated.

Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh my!

Well, at least a bear.

All my valentine gifts, including Buffy Buddy Bear, above, come with a blank valentine card.

I'm in a treasury!

I just don't understand facebook yet. It's like I have a Tiger by the tail!

The Gurney's flower seeds have arrived! Is it spring yet?

Recently a youngish person asked how to go about reading the Bible. I replied that some like to start with the Book of John, but it didn't matter where one starts. Just read it all, and when you finish, do it over again.

I've recently been quite disappointed with the quality of books available to us on tape, and the answer to that, of course, is to read The Book. It's entertaining,uplifting, thought-provoking, and a good idea.

I'm convicted, now, thinking of my answer to that question. When I asked a gym buddy how people in her denomination deal with adversity, she replied, "They stick their nose in The Book."

With a Little Help...

The Sun has not cooperated, but I tried a little backlighting.

I've decided to only post one item a day, and wanted to get the valentine up in the shop. I've also completed a fun spring scarf, a beanie, a mad pillow, and most of Buff Buddy.

Ready to photograph

If the weather and bunnies cooperate I would like to take pics of completed items for the Etsy shop.

Now that I'm on twitter, facebook, and myspace, I'd like to make more connections there. Shall we be friends?

We heard that people on twitter are 60% less likely to speak to their spouse. Pete is resigning himself to becoming a twitter widower.

We have five babies in the basement. However the mother is young and the babies are very cold. I don't have much hope. I've tried putting cool newborns in warm water, to no effect. What a waste.

Prayer Stoll, Comfort Shawl

I've made a couple of prayer shawls for members of my family, and am now making one for the Etsy shop. I'm using lavender acrylic, to make a pleasant springtime item. Lavender may also be the remembrance color for rheumatoid arthritis.

It's taking more time to complete than the ones for family because, to reduce boredom in the bleak midwinter, I'm rotating it with a couple of crocheted animals. Buffy Bear will have a nice red heart showing, for Valentine's Day. Timothy Tortoise will have a colorful shell.

Am I suffering from cuteness?

joined the world

Just opened a facebook page and linked it to twitter. The idea is to generate some excitement as I hybernate in the bleak midwinter.

Need a red hat?
