Girls! Plaza Fiesta! 10.3.18

Tim A. Cummins @ 8:54 pm  

Caught up on my admin duties early today by posting material to my blog and Facebook feeds.

Studied Spanish and Swahili this morning. And every morning!


Ate lunch at the Buford Highway Farmers Market. Got some new stuff. The spicy tofu and the paneer were especially good.

Goodies for the girls. I liked the sound of this.

Took Penelope and Everly to Plaza Fiesta while Ashley worked on Admin duties.

The girls are always popular.

Gamers!

Remember this?

Big slides backwards!

We got back to Ashey’s house and moved her old bed into Penelope’s room. Wasn’t too hard.


Mission accomplished.

Ashley and I will be speaking at Peachtree Corners Baptist Church this Sunday morning. I went by FBC Doraville to pick up supplies for the event.


Our closet is jammed with stuff!

Got home pretty late and it’s getting dark earlier every day so I only managed a 4.74 mile bike ride this evening.

Beautiful clouds.

Mission! David Byrne! 10.2.18

Tim A. Cummins @ 12:04 pm  

Studied Spanish and Swahili on Tuesday! I’m catching up on my admin duties on Wednesday because of a late last night!



Helped the kids with their homework.



Yair’s art.

Promo.

Went to the David Byrne concert at the Fox last night. Wow! What a show!

One of the most beautiful theaters in the world! I’ve seen Amy Grant, Cake and Neil Young there, too!







Tuneyards were the warm up band. They were ok.

A very interesting show with David Byrne who included many of his Talking Heads hits.


Lots of percussion.


Fun show!

I took Marta rather than drive downtown and try and park. Turned out to be a great plan. Close to the Fox and fast.


Still kind of tired this morning.

Bills! Bed! Mission 10.1.18

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:24 pm  

Studied Spanish and Swahili.



Sometimes it’s hard to get the answers correct because the English sounds so weird to me.

Kathy got her inheritance money. Amen! I was able to pay off our gutter and carpentry bills as well as our credit cards.

We also were able to get Ashley and Miles a new bed. Awesome! Penelope approved!

We got them the King size. It should help them get a LOT better night’s sleep.

Picked up the newsletters from our partners at the Atlanta Metro Baptist Association.

Our friend Joel Harrison is retiring at the end of the year. Pray that the new director will continue that ministry to us!

Picked up the mail from FBC Doraville.

Helped the kids at the mission.
Everly was playing peek a boo with me.


Always great to see the kids.


They helped us stuff the newsletters into the envelopes.

Everly enjoyed her banana. She didn’t want Ashley to help peel it a bit more.

After we finished helping the kids with their homework, I took the crib apart in Penelope’s room. Ashley will put her old mattress into P’s room.

Glad I had the right tool!

Put all the pieces into Ashley’s Jeep.

Then took it over to St. Vincent de Paul for someone else to use.

Got the newsletters into the mail.


Deposited checks.

Ate some spicy tofu at the Buford Highway Farmers Market before I came home.

Beautiful clouds on the way home.

Printed up my ticket to see David Byrne of the Talking Heads tomorrow night. One of my all time favorite artists!

Girls! 9.28.18

Tim A. Cummins @ 7:05 pm  

Studied Spanish/Swahili this morning. I’m working on the hardest of each language.

The girls came over to spend the day. What a giant blessing they are to me!

We had kind of rainy weather. Went to Goodwill to hang out. Always a chill place to have fun.

Kathy enjoyed it too!

Good times.

They liked playing on the couches. Goodwill didn’t seem to mind.

Penelope got a new coat. I think she’ll really enjoy it. Has a nice hood.

They enjoyed playing hide and seek in the women’s pants section.

Dapper hat!

Glad to see that the Senate decided to let the FBI look into the allegations of Dr. Ford. Seems like the right thing to do.

Podcast! Bike! Buddies! Mission! 9.27.18

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:44 pm  

Studied, you guessed it, Spanish and Swahili! Every day, just a little bit better.

Word order is still tricky sometimes.

There are only five categories left in Swahili. They are all hard, especially when the English sounds weird.

Recorded a new podcast! Always fun! I called this one “Size Wise!”
Spent over an hour calling old friends of mine from Baylor including Dave Reiner, Elmo Frickman, Dan Smith, Carl Craeplin, David Wiley, Jim Pirtle, Noubar Stone, Pat Young, Steven Stanton and Bill Sproull. I hope to see at least a few of them at Baylor on the first weekend of November.

Went for a 6.77 mile bike ride.

Listened to some of the Kavenaugh confirmation hearing. I don’t believe him at all.
Rainy day!

Checked the mail at the church.

Helped the kids at the mission.

Double blessing!

I liked Yair’s work.


Got gas. Kind of mad at myself. Meant to get it at the QT by my house where the gas is $2.52! Cost me a couple of dollars because of that mistake.

Took Kathy out for supper.
Admin duties now.
Beautiful Turkey Tail polypore mushrooms blooming on the stump near our garage.
