miscellany monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

 1.  A Week Late...and probably a few dollars short.  See, I don't like basketball...mainly the NBA.  I never watch it (although I will watch the slam dunk contest during the all-star game) and I rarely follow what is going on with the players.  Well yesterday Rondell was watching a game and I was sitting next to him.  I noticed that a player was now playing for a different team and I commented about it.  Rondell looked at me, patted my leg and told me I was so behind.  So I'm thinking that maybe this happened last year or something.  Nope...last week...I was a week late, but I guess in the basketball world that's a lot.

2.  The Cosby Show...classic show.  I love Bill Cosby and his show is one of my favorites.  This weekend Rondell and Jamison watched it most of Saturday evening.  They laughed and laughed and it was great to watch them enjoying something together.  Last night we ended up going through Netflix to show Jamison the classic anniversary episode where the entire family performed for the grandparents as well as the very first episode.  I think she's hooked just like we all were on Thursday nights in the 80's.

3.  Chef Boy RD...that's my new cook.  I think I've figured it out...I don't like to cook that much (I don't dislike it, I just don't ooh and aahh about doing it).  I love new recipes and good food, but I don't have that strong desire to be in the kitchen.  I have discovered lately that Rondell DOES and this might just be the solution for my menu slump.  He made chili the other night and it was SO much better than the chili I make.  So, I think that's it...Rondell will be the cook (are you reading this Ron?).

4.  Memory verse...verse 5 (but really verse 3 for me).  For the last 4 weeks I have been meditating on and memorizing Isaiah 40:28-29:

Have you not known?  Have you not heard.  The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.  He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable.  He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.

Love it!

My next memory verses are from Lamentations 3:22-23:

The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

Lucky girl with a personal chef! I need one of those:) I love the Cosby Show too...but I haven't seen it in years! I will have to look for it on Netflix.

Sports! NOPE, not me. I know nothing about any of it. (Except I will watch golf with my hubby once in awhile...because it is calm...and the scenery is pretty! Ha!)

Love that verse. Thanks for posting it today.

I love the reruns of Cosby too! So funny. TV isn't what it used to be.

Hey, I wish I had my own personal chef.

I am not a BBall fan either. I watch March Madness and that is it!

I love the Cosby show...it is an awesome show...we need more shows like that again.

And girl...yay for a cook! I love it when Gary cooks. IT is fun to mix it up every now and then. Gary likes to make a few meals here and there and I love him for it!

NBA? NFL? Nope. College sports? You betcha! :o)

The Cosby Show? Oh how I still laugh my tushy off at it. I LOVE Bill Cosby and the show is a classic. :o) I used to get upset on Thursday nights if choir practice ran over because I would miss the beginning. :oP

Chef Boy RD? GREAT idea! :o)

Fantastic memory verse. Awesome and inspiring.

Happy Monday!

P.S. I hope we get this email thing fixed. Poo. :o(

I play along this week! It had been too long so I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. :-)

Sports, yup, I'm late too because I don't follow it at all. The Gators football, yes. Everything else, nope! I wouldn't have even known that a player had changed teams. ;-)

I loved The Cosby Show!! And when they all performed that was my favorite. Rudy was a hoot "singing"! Shows were just better back then!

What a wonderful memory verse!

I loved the Cosby show, and I loved that episode in particular. (They sang Night and Day, right?)

Love the verses, and love that you have a personal chef. oo la la! :)

The Starr Family said...

I'm fairly certain I was supposed to be a Huxtable. It was my parents favorite growing up, we always watched it. I also remember telling my mom I was going to marry Theo :)

There is one episode that stands out to me to this day... when Claire got her very own space, an office. I remember her lying on the floor (I think the carpet was pink!)... oh how I relate to that today!

Loved the Cosby show! I still need to get a Gordon Gartrell shirt for the dance.

I also love how he dealt with Vanessa when she tried smoking. Hee hee!

Sarah said...

Awww, the Cosby Show! I haven't seen that in a long, long time. Such a great show.

Sarah said...

And, I should have added that I passed a little award to you on my blog today :)

LeAnna said...

I love Bill Cosby! He's going to be in town in April, and I so want to see him!

Becca said...

Oh my goodness- I can totally hear the Huxtabiles singing with little Rudy!! So cute!

And I think you found a new job for Chef Boy RD!!!
