I finally wrote something on the DIY Chalkboard

Norie is pretty well over her cough and only woke up two or three times Saturday night. It was so amazing I woke up Sunday morning with the post communion canticle from the Lutheran Book of Worship in my head.

What, you're not Lutheran?

It starts, "Thank the Lord and sing his praise."

Now imagine me as a child singing with glee because the end of communion is pretty much the end of a Lutheran church service. Thank the Lord indeed.

That's pretty much the level of excitement that was occurring in my head.

I had the energy to take on a project and I wrote on the DIY Chalkboard.

I got inspired after finding this quote by Henry David Thoreau

I'd rather sit alone on a pumpkin
and have it all to myself
than be crowded on a velvet cushion.

Only thing is I wouldn't rather sit on a pumpkin by myself.


I'd rather sit on a pumpkin with you.

I'm pretty sure Austin thinks it's cheesy.

I'd rather sit with him on a pumpkin anyway.

  1. For 8-ish months, I've had a whole wall of chalkboard in my dining room and I have yet to put anything of significance on it.
