I redid the organization of my new book Story Tim!

I put all the relaxation and visualization material at the end. Also redacted any mention of hypnosis. It’s just not necessary to even use the term.
GREAT to see this project moving along. Also edited a few mistakes that Ashley found on her readthrough. I’m looking forward to seeing her illustrations.

Reading Enlightenment Now. A very positive and interesting book.

Saw some fascinating con trails yesterday. I’ve only seen this happen a few times. The water vapor doesn’t seem to diffuse.

Went to FBC Doraville to pick up checks. Also left a message with John Mahoney about setting up for our team on Monday this coming Thursday. I have a mission conference starting Friday and lasting the entire weekend.

Went to the mission to help the kids. No homework because of testing.

I took Penelope home with me to give Ashley a chance to work on the donor list. Every year in March we notify everyone on the list who has not donated that they will drop off the newsletter list if they don’t send a note back.

Penelope was fabulous.

Such a sweet family. So full of love.

I took Penelope to the park to play on the train.

Then took her to another park at PDK Airport. Beautiful sky and we must have seen at least twenty planes take off or land. FUN!

I got about seven hours of sleep last night. Penelope was feeling a lot better than she was last time!
I basically go to sleep when she does and wake up when she does. So no admin duties last night.

Better to focus on Penelope!

Newsletter! Bike!

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:56 pm  

Studied Portuguese. Surprised?

Worked on my newsletter.

Sent it to our friend Joel Harrison to print.

He won’t be back in the office till 3/5.

Printed off our labels for the newsletter. We need to separate the supporters who haven’t donated this month to make sure they still want to receive the letter.

Paid bills.

Deposited checks at the bank.

Did the shopping. What color are apples again?

These red grapes from Peru are excellent.

I feel a little more Incan when I eat them.
Got stamps for the newsletters.

Got groceries at Walmart. LOT.

Reading an interesting book called Enlightenment Now.

Went for a bike ride.

Still getting back in shape. Had problems with my seat today. Had to come back four times before I finally got it right.

Juvenile Sharp Shinned Hawk checking me out.

I love shots with the Sun or Moon interacting with trees. Sunflower.

Little purple flowers.

Gorgeous colors this evening.

Portuguese! Westside! Hummingbirds!

Tim A. Cummins @ 10:09 pm  

Studied Portuguese. Sim!

Went to Westside BC.

We had a special type of Lord’s Supper where people came up as family groups.

I liked this sticker. It reminded me of Penelope.

You know I’m in Spring Mode when I clean and refill the hummingbird feeders. Can’t wait to see them again! Hope they all make it back.

Got about 1/2″ of rain today.

My Elaeagnus is doing well.

I liked these quotes by Richard Feynman.

Terrific album!

Watered my plants.

Gassed up my car.

Ashley and I enjoyed working with our team from First Redeemer in Cumming, GA.


Went on Safari to the Buford Highway Farmers Market.

Nothing better than working with ASHLEY!

Rode my bike 4.86 miles. Beautiful! Especially the Pink Magnolias!

Camillias were also incredible.

Portuguese! Penelope! Water Heater!

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:57 pm  

Studied Portuguese. Cada dia!

My Elaeagnus is doing well. This spring will be the first time it’s flowered. It’s a favorite scent of mine!

Reading Englightenment Now by Stephen Pinker. It’s very optimistic.

My Pink Magnolias are ready to bloom.

My plumber came back to install the pressure valve.

The hot water heater also had to be replaced. It was from 1998 and was only supposed to last twelve years. Se we got nearly double out of it! The new one also has more modern safety features.
Penelope came to visit. What a concentrated blessing of awesomeness she is!

Once we realized the water heater wasn’t working properly, Kyle went back to get a new one.

Penelope likes to swing!

I painted her toenails pink.

She was happy about it.

Released a new episode of Verbal Surgery -534- “GO Know!”

New water heater installed!

$1,740 for the repair of the shower handle, put on the pressure valve and a new water heater. I thought that was reasonable.
Keep Smiling Plumbing did a great job for us! Kyle is a master.

Portuguese! Podcast! LIVE! Mission!

Tim A. Cummins @ 10:45 pm  

Studied Portuguese this morning. Cada dia eu tento falar um pouco mais.

Spent a few hours helping Kathy with her online course. It’s a lot of information about her job at the day care center. Quite a bit of the information had to do with what happens if a shooter comes in.

Uploaded a new edition of Verbal Surgery -533- “Mix and Match.”

Portuguese! Penelope! Instagram!

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:53 pm  

Studied Portuguese. Sim!

I like this song. So humble.

From the current Time magazine on how to live a long and happy life.

Recorded another edition of Verbal Surgery this morning called, “NEXTpectations.” Good stuff!

Penelope came over to visit while Ashley got her contact sorted out.

There is one squirrel left in the yard. So far we haven’t heard scratching sounds when it’s chewing.
I caught and released nine.

They’ve damaged sections of my roof.

Tree branch damage.

I was trying to show Penelope these tiny blue flowers.

She enjoyed riding down the hill. It was the first time I think she was really steering and stopping in a controlled way. She’s so awesome!
She was looking at azalea flowers.

I’m teaching her how to do use the Total Gym. She’s already learned some of the movements!
Ashley says she’s seen her get out the yoga mat, and do yoga moves! What!?
Jesse said his check engine light came one. Bahd luck. Hope it’s nothing serious.
I took K to Piccadilly this evening. We’ve been enjoying each other’s company.

Choir sang.

Pastor Ben spoke about having goals.

After church, I called some friends. Talked with the man who translated for me in Brazil, Cesar.

Great guy!
Also talked with my best friend Anthony Jacquin. Always good.

We are interested in the brain and how neurotransmitters work.

Went for a 13.47 mile ride. Didn’t go fast. I haven’t been biking much during the winter. Absolutely beautiful.

Clouds were fantastic.

Cool stuff to see.

I covered this up.

Cleaned all my birdbaths.

Felt great to be out riding again.

Studied Portuguese!

Trees are blooming!

Recorded a new episode of Verbal Surgery “UN Control.” It will release next week.

Jesse and I planned to go see Black Panther today. It was sold out. The trees nearby were beautiful.

I’ve been listening to Santigold. I’ve enjoyed it.

Woke up really early this morning. Probably going to sleep early.
