Spanish! Podcast! Penelope & Everly!

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:43 pm  

Studied Spanish and Swahili this morning. Placed out of five more sections.

Released Verbal Surgery -544- “Blind Typing.”

Improve your skill set with these practical ideas!

Uploaded to my server and link on Facebook.

Wrote the “Thank You!” email to our team from Shirley Hills. It includes the four photo galleries and the link to the video I shot on YouTube. Lots of links to blogs and instagram and other social media.

GREAT to have the girls come over!

Penelope had fun wearing the cereal box like a hat.

We spent most of the time in my room. Or swinging!

After Ashley picked the girls up, I vacuumed the house.

I had fun shooting the azaleas in my yard.

Jesse and I really enjoyed Ready Player One. Fun VR movie. Not nearly as good as the book, though. That book was written for guys like me of my age. All those games and movies I grew up with.

Beautiful Moon Flower this evening.

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:13 pm  

Studied Swahili and Spanish!

Ashley and I had a great Dedication Day with our team from Warner Robbins.

Signing the Landing Pad!

Plaza Fiesta!

After the Plaza Fiesta Safari, the girls and I went back to the church to strike the set.
Once everything was put up, I sent them home and I swept, mopped and put some chairs around tables and put some tables up.

On the way home I picked up the newsletters and went to Walmart to get more envelopes. I almost had enough, but not quite.

Got stamps for the newsletters.

Looking forward to this movie!

Comparison of the pixelation in our newsletter.
My new New Balance walking shoes came in tonight!

Put the labels on the envelopes and stuffed them with the newsletters. Then dropped them in the mail.

Admin duties now and edit video of the team I shot last week.

Shirley Hills! Asian Square! China Town! Missions!

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:49 pm  

Studied Spanish and Swahili.

I released a new episode of Verbal Surgery -543- “Keep the Change.”
Just click on the title and GROOVE!
Uploaded to server.

Link on Facebook.
Paid bills.
I worked on editing my new book Story Tim until after midnight. Broke my streak. I think part of me did it on purpose, just to not be a slave to it. I did study that day, I just didn’t get quite enough answers right to place out of that section of Duolingo.
Ashley, Penelope, Everly and I had a great time with our team from Shirley Hills BC.

King Tim.

Malaysian food for lunch.
On Safari to Asian Square and China Town.

Calligraphy and Serenity Garden.


Got a new door knob to swap out for the one in my office. Also cut the keys while I was a Walmart.

Everly is six months old now!

The teams are doing great at the mission.

Admin duties now.
Still need to get the newsletter done.
Lots going on!

Shirley Hills! BHFM! Missions!

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:59 pm  

I studied Spanish this morning. I tried to place out of another big chunk of material. Almost made it, but not quite. Honestly, if I can’t figure it out, that’s why I’m studying!

Ashley, Penelope, Everly and I enjoyed working with our team from Shirley Hills BC in Warner Robbins, GA.

Took them on Safari to the Buford Highway Farmers Market.

They liked the food!

Never too much Ashley!

The team did great at the missions!

Tried to record at the church but someone had taken my office key and failed to replace it. Grrrr. I tried to record in the room next to my office, but it was kind of noisy. Traffic sirens in particular. And the room sounded “boomy.”
I’ve also come to the conclusion that I need to edit one last time before the read through. I will probably re-record what I have so far, which is the first ten chapters. We’ll see.
I’m thinking I want a “purer” version of the book which is just the stories with less life learnings. Again, I’m still in the thinking about it mode.

Paid bills.

Swahili! Audiobook! Family Photo! 3.25.18

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:17 pm  

Studied Swahili/Spanish this morning.

Recorded two more chapters in my book Story Tim.

Went to Ashley’s house to take a family photo. Hard to do. We needed someone to take the picture to help Penelope smile. The timer thing doesn’t work well for kids.

Gassed up Kathy’s car for her.

Audiobook! Penelope!

Tim A. Cummins @ 4:27 pm  

I spent most of Friday working on the audio version of Story Tim — Adventure Land. I recorded and processed four chapters on Friday. My goal is two a day. I did extra because I knew I was keeping Penelope over night. Always a blessing.

Released a new edition of Verbal Surgery -542-“Silent and Friendly.” Take your relationships to the next level!

Just click on the title and GROOVE!

Uploaded to server and link on Facebook.

Went LIVE on Facebook with the video edition of “Silent and Friendly.”

Ashley brought Penelope over around 6:30 pm. We went to the park. She loves climbing and a snow cone for a treat.

Beautiful evening with a wonderful granddaughter.

We enjoyed watching Super Wings. One of the most interesting kid’s shows I’ve seen. Every episode Jett the plane delivers a package to some child in a foreign town and country. They even learn a little of the language.

She went to sleep about 11:30pm and woke up around 8:30am. After eating fruit breakfast, we went outside and played in the yard. I cleaned up my outside rug and St. Francis area. Also trimmed bushes in the front of my house.

Ashley and Everly came over to the house around 1:00pm. GREAT to see all my girls and Jesse!

Penelope and I swung for about twenty minutes. She was tired and I rocked her to sleep.

Rested a bit then went and got lunch. On the way home, I stopped by an antique place called Once Possessed. Always something interesting to see.

Watered my plants.
