I haven't gotten much done in the last few days. I find that I've been captivated by a little game called Words with Friends!!
I inherited Sam's iPod -- everybody else in the family already had one!! -- and I figured I'd use it to listen to audio books while I work or walk. Sam had mostly games and music on his, and 99% of the games didn't interest me at all, but I really wanted to play Words!
And boy, have I been playing!! LOL
I blame my children, of course. They'd never play Scrabble with me.
And while it's true that I'm a TINY (teeny, tiny, really!!!) bit competitive, I would have given them a sporting chance. At first. Until the opportunity came to use all my letters....
Tracy from Back to Basics plays with me. And when she's busy (cooking, canning, gardening, quilting, walking....she gets LOTS of stuff done!!!) or her kids are busy (they really are very good sports!), I troll for random players online. I'm enthralled!!! I keep the game up by my sewing machine and respond when I hear the "ding-a-ling" signalling a word has been proffered!
The t-shirt quilt I've been working on has a lot of words on it...
I like some of the sentiments that are going into the quilt. Like this one:
Scripture says "Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof." (Proverbs 18:21 KJV)
I like how the Message version states it:
"Words kill, words give life;
they're either poison or fruit—you choose."
I have received literally hundreds of words of comfort and blessing since I started blogging last year, and most especially in the last few weeks.
Good words make such a difference, don't they?
"A word fitly spoken," says the Proverbs, "is like apples of gold in pictures of silver." (Proverbs 25:11 KJV)
Doesn't that description make you wanna applique? LOL
"Picture" is a seven-letter word...it's serious bonus points if I use all seven of my letters. My ID is mlcasada if you wanna play!!
