Less Randomly, But Not Quite

light blue random numbers background texture

1. If last week’s Saturday blog stats hold any meaning at all, it appears my readers enjoy a numbered, quick hit list of, well … random things.


2. I love to knit. It’s not the least expensive hobby in the world, but I do enjoy a good Yarn Sale. This woman, on the other hand, knits for free—dubious as her sense of style may be.


3. People who consistently save 20% of their income can do that because they scrimp on this one thing you probably don’t.


4. In anticipation of Holy Week, I’m reading Jesus on Trial: A Lawyer Affirms the Truth of the Gospel, by David Limbaugh. Highly recommend.


5. Just this morning I did it again using this tactic: This blue striped sweater for just north of $35, including tax and shipping—which is, of course, half the price!


6. What I’m also loving: JOMO (joy of missing out—at the moment I have no idea where my iPhone is) and New Morning Mercies (Paul David Tripp).


7. Don’t change your birthday to 2007 on Twitter.


8. Yesterday was the last day of Spring Break for Eli and Sam—best week ever.


9. Today, it’s snowing.

    My grandma was an avid knitter and bought her share of yarn. One other thing she did that saved her a lot of money on yarn was go to thrift and 2nd hand stores when they bag sales. You could fill a bag with all it could hold for $5. My grandma would stock up on anything made from yarn. She’d Bring it home, wash, dry then unravel it. Then us grandkids would help her roll it into balls. It’s not for everyone but it was fun for us. The time spent doing busy work and telling stories was precious time together.

    Regarding #2, fascinating but I can’t imagine wearing something made out of PLASTIC! How hot would that be, and not in a good way? On the other hand, I could see it for a placemat or rug. Wipe clean and you’re good to go.

    Oh, my gosh Mary! The Molly Brown House Museum! I work at the public library in Oak Lawn IL and a relative of an Oak Lawn resident sent pictures of his house (in 1944) to his relatives here in OL and it was the house next door to the Molly Brown house! It was demolished in the 1960s, but was built by the same architect and in the same year. Amazing that you have this in your ‘random’ day column. Here’s a link:
