(Do you remember when I posted this post on June 24, 2007, one year ago today? I've pasted it below to refresh your memory...)
If...you're happy and you know it spin a WEB.
If you're happy and you know it spin a web!
If you're happy and you know it.....
Then your face will surely show it...
If you're happy and you know it, spin a web!
Smilie the spider is back!
Another song comes to mind, something about "we're all in our places with bright shiny faces..."
I have NO idea if it is the same spider from last year, or if she is the daughter of Smilie, but there she is, in the exact same location, on the exact same date, one year later.
I have no idea where she went during the autumn, winter and spring either. She didn't write, she didn't send even a post card....
I do wonder how many generations of Smilies have built webs on this particular plot of land. Like, since after getting off the Ark? Something to think about.
Finding something to think about really isn't a problem around here. My mind is mulling over what I want to take, sell or give away from all our possessions. That question would be a lot easier to answer if I knew exactly where we were going to.
The question of where we are going to shifts daily. Opportunities for interviews come from many directions, and ultimately we will have to trust God to give us work where He wants us to be.
Meanwhile we are going ahead with getting our house ready for sale. I'm taking "Before" "During" and "After" pictures.
The kitchen "Before":

Walking into the kitchen from the living room/dining room .
French doors are next to the front door, entering the kitchen from the foyer. Cookbook book shelf behind rocker where I always dump my purse as I come in from the garage.
Kitchen desk and open shelving.
I culled about 3/4ths of my cook book collection a few years ago...the Internet has it all!
Looking from the breakfast nook back to the living room.
From the living room...Bernie is standing at the sink
DURING. This is the kitchen as it looks this morning. Yesterday the painters applied an oil based primer to the walls. The odor was potent, and opening all the windows in the 97 degree heat here was pretty icky.
Lucky for me I had to go to work all day...(smile!)
The sun room looks pretty crazy with the wall covering off...
