Friday Fragments

Hosted by Mrs4444. Time for the end of week mental declutter that is Friday Fragments. Let’s see what’s floating about in here shall we? **** I did my 6th Kiva loan this week, which apparently makes me an average Kiva lender. Must do better.

They barely managed to hang around long enough to say “Home Bible study…?” before they bolted next door. I didn’t even find out which variety they were! I’ve started on the lounge room, I figure one corner at a time is the way to go. I’ll try not to end up after the 4th corner with one huge pile of crap in the middle. That would be bad because then we wouldn’t … Continue reading How to make door-knocking God-botherers run away.
