Portuguese! Podcast! Groceries!

Tim A. Cummins @ 7:40 pm  

Rainy day. I decided not to travel into Chamblee because of the rainy weather. I didn’t want to carry stuff back and forth to my car in the rain. Plus the traffic would be brutal. ALWAYS wrecks when it gets wet.

Worked on Portuguese!

I think this may be a one day high for Verbal Surgery: 650!
Enjoying listening to Walk the Moon’s new album “What if nothing?”
Highly recommend.

Recorded a new episode of Verbal Surgery “Joy Ride.” It’s a good one!

Went live on Facebook with “Brain Raining.” It went great!

Gassed up my car.

Did some grocery shopping with my mom.

Uploaded to server. Link on Facebook.

Talked with my insurance guy. We got a glitch figured out on my policies with one of the companies we’re dealing with. No problem.

The girls came over to visit us this morning. Always a blessing!

Tense baby.

We had a fun lunch at El Torero.

My mom and I did a supply run from Dollar Tree today. We are building towards having supplies for Outreach Events in thirty different apartment complexes around seven cities in Metroplex Atlanta. First we started making a list of what we need.

Then start making inventory of what we got at the store and how much more we need to buy.
Mom was a big help getting the supplies and pushing carts around!

This is just ONE of the bills. We’d have to buy stuff and take it to the car and unload it because of lack of carts.

Here’s another one!
We had our annual Whirlwind Missions Board Meeting this evening! It was the final one for our retiring President of the Board, Dr. Carl Barrington!

Here’s another!

Came home to work on admin duties.

Portuguese! Girls! Nana!

Tim A. Cummins @ 10:09 am  

Monday morning I studied past tense in Portuguese.

Drove to Chamblee to help Ashley take care of her girls while she took her computer to get repaired.
She was sad for a while, but finally took a nap!

Then all the girls came to MY house! Penelope and I had fun.

We got Ashley’s truck worked on. Needed new brakes. Pretty expensive. Gotta do what you gotta do!

Ash and I worked on putting the final details on the Board Report. We will have our meeting on Tuesday night at Ashley’s house.

Enjoying reading Sleight of Mind.
Worked on getting my Mom’s room ready for her visit!
Jesse went with me to the airport last night to pick her up!

We had some issues getting her bag. I think the airport was still in a bit of a mess after the power outage on Sunday.

I liked this penguin at the airport!

Portuguese! Westside! Media!

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:06 pm  

Studied Portuguese this morning. Surprised?

Went to Westside this morning.

Pastor talked to the young people.

Pastor spoke about how close to the truth was the baby Jesus narrative?

Came home and worked on two new chapters in my book Quantum Metaphors.

Added media to my Twitter feed. I have lined up through nearly the end of April 2018.

Enjoying the Sleight of Mind book.
Playing Battlefront 2.
Admin duties.
Looking forward to my Mom coming in tomorrow evening!

Portuguese! Podcast! LIVE! Party!

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:45 pm  

Studied Portuguese this morning! Worked on infinitives.

Recorded a new podcast! It’s called “Speak Bear.” It’s awesome! I saved it on my hard drive and wrote a description of it to post next week.
We had our Christmas Party today at Azalea. We decorated cookies.

I told them the Christmas Story and had a prayer time.

Love this family!

And all their neighbors!

Then we had the gift time. I collect a lot of toys from the Dollar Tree and then let them pick out what they want. We had enough to go through three times.

Fun day!

Came home to work on admin duties and rest.

Had some good one on one time with Everly this morning.

I let Kathy have Penelope. Once she sees me the whole dynamic changes.

When Ashley got back, I got to hang with the Magnificent One.

Ashley, Penelope and I went to Goodwill to look for gifts. I get some terrific stuff there.

When the girls went home, I checked out gifts from the Dollar Tree for our Christmas party at Azalea on Saturday.

I loved the sky today.

Power pole replacement today in our neighborhood.

Called my new insurance people and made a payment. I still need to get that set up as an auto debit.

Portuguese! Recon! Start Wars!

Tim A. Cummins @ 10:46 am  

Wednesday night I went outside to watch the Geminid meteor shower. I usually go to Stone Mountain. I stayed in my neighborhood and hung out in a vacant lot. Not nearly as cold as on that rock! I saw twelve meteors and one really good fireball!

Thursday morning studied Portuguese! Sim!

Finished my recon of apartments. We have confirmed thirty locations for our outreach with Campus Crusade on December 29th.

Went by FBC Doraville to check on mail. GREAT to see Pastor Bill!
THANKS to our generous donors!
Went to the bank to deposit money.

Stopped by to see the girls!

Gassed up my car.
Enjoying reading Sleight of Mind.

Saw Star Wars! Terrific movie!

I liked the color of this tree.

Portuguese! Recon! Rio! Mission!

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:50 pm  

Studied Portuguese. Came in handy today!

Went on a recon of apartments today. I think in all we have 24 of the 30 apartments comfirmed. I talked to managers or staff and left them information about the event on the 29th.

I collect a business card when I have a confirmation.

Stopped by to eat lunch at Ashley’s. Enjoyed time playing with Penelope’s fedora. Beauty!

She’s such a sweetheart!

We are making a name gallery.

I hosted a 50 minute lecture in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil this afternoon. I spoke a mixture of mainly Portuguese with some English thrown in. It was hard to do. There was a bit of a time lag as well as language barriers. I couldn’t really see or interact with my audience very well. But they seemed to like it.

Helped the kids at the mission.

I liked this.

And this.

I study science for the BOOM.
Beautiful sunset.
Enjoyed the Sleight of Mind book.

Portuguese! LIVE! Girls! Recon! Mission!

Tim A. Cummins @ 10:54 pm  

Studied Portuguese this morning! Cada dia um pouco mais.

Ashley had prepared the flyers to give the managers. We are promoting a big event on December 29th with Campus Crusade. They will mobiles around 400 people in 30 different complexes. Amen! Great to see the girls!

Deposited money. Thank you, Lord! And supporters!

I’m enjoyind reading this book. Anything neurological I’m interested in!

Dude can’t even put a sticker on straight. I gave him plenty of space.

I started going to the complexes to tell them about the upcoming outreach. I think I went by 17 and confirmations on 11. The others weren’t in the office. I collected a biz card from each complex to verify the addresses of the complexes.

This one is new. It’s the sister property of Huntington Terraces.

Don Juan took over Pearl Lane.

I’ll set up thirty this week if all goes well.

Worked with the kids at the mission. It wasn’t that cold inside. VERY windy and cold outside!

Beautiful sunset.

Tomorrow night will the peak of the Geminid meteor shower. Eastern skies after 9pm until about 2am.

Portuguese! Podcast! Post! Church! Mission!

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:52 pm  

Studied Portuguese this morning.

Added material to my Twitter feed. About 90,000 followers.

They are my version of sermon notes.

Recorded a new edition of Verbal Surgery -513- “Next Step Ladder.” How to get ourselves into action. It’s excellent!
Went to the Post Office to mail a couple of items to my friend Fred Sorrells.

I got him the standard set up for my phone to use as a camera: mount for the iPhone, pistol grip, wrist sling, tempered glass cover, spec white performance candy shell case. He has most of it already. But I also got him a cigarette lighter adaptor with two outputs and two usb outs. You can charge four devices with it. Then I also ordered a blue tooth receiver so he can play music or books from his phone to the car’s stereo.

Gassed up my car.
Went by FBC Doraville to pick up checks.

I brought Penelope a new Hot Wheels car along with 15 foot of track.

She was delighted.

Helped the kids with their homework. Actually, I more or less just played with Penelope.
I love the Autumn skies.

Did the shopping.
I’m enjoying all the different kinds of apples.

Admin duties now.

I liked this plate.
