HELLOS, HALOES, AND LIFE

halo, hello

Sending my hellos to everyone (keeping my haloes). By the way I wonder why I put “e” in haloes but not hellos. Which is wrong, if either? Nope, I’m right on both counts BUT my spellcheck doesn’t like it.  I’ve been pretty much off posting for a few days.  You all understand; sometimes life piles up on you also.  Some times my other life just must get some attention.  Things like:

  1.  Getting to take care of my darling great-grands!
  2.   Preparing a Sunday lunch (dinner) for a two dear couples, friends from church.
  3.   Son getting married.  (Didn’t take any time from me.)
  4.   Preparing and presenting a speech to Toastmasters and church.
  5.   Went with folks to prepare breakfast for Teen Challenge guys. (Speech there also)
  6.   A trying experience with my printer that wouldn’t print  Took hours but I fixed it!
  7.   Took extra time to prepare Sunday School lesson because of bum printer.
  8.   A full night of insomnia (except for a bit less than two hours).  Took long naps to  make up for the sleep shortage. 
  9.   An absolutely lovely day or two when garden beckoned.
  10.   And even a day of house cleaning (that was because of the company :D)
  11.   A renewed determination to lengthen my study/prayer time with the Lord.
  12.   Making some plans for my great-grands who will be back tonight and tomorrow,    maybe tomorrow night  Love that time.  I even get to color!

Now who can gripe at life detours that contains things like I’ve listed!

 Sending love with my hellos to all my haloed friends, even those whose haloes are slightly off-center. Jesus has to remind me to straighten mine sometimes! He’s ever so good when he does it! All my contacts with him are good, gooder, and goodest.  

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    I love your list. I was especially taken with and sympathetic about that printer. Good for you, for getting it fixed: and on your own. I had my own little cyber-crisis here last week, when I accidentally deleted about 400 photos from my camera’s memory card — BEFORE I had uploaded them to the computer. One click, and for about five seconds I watched them disappearing before my eyes.
    What was worst — I knew what I’d erased, and there never would be a way to replicate them.

    Well, here’s your helpful hint for the day. I mentioned my stupidity to a photographer I know, and he told me that, if I hadn’t reformatted the card, I could get them back. I found a free restoration program online, downloaded and ran it, and voila! My photos all were back.

    Now, I ask you: was that photographer friend not an angel, and the restoration a miracle? It sure seems like it to me.

      I would say he/she was a Godsend for you at that particular time. Great ending to your experience. I worked a long time and I did feel victorious to have reached my desired result. Problem is I’m afraid I stumbled onto the answer. I wouldn’t know how to repeat the successful part – perhaps that was the Godsend for me! I’m glad to be a receiver for the retrieval of your photos – at least I hope to see more of them.

    Delighted about the restored photos shared above and love the interest your post inspired Oneta. It all rang so true. Much of life is the necessary and sometimes our blogging goals are a part of this life – also writing – journaling etc BUT…..as long as in the middle of it all you (oneta) still find time even if it is after many days, to keep in touch – others reap the benefit. Thanks.

    • oneta hayes says:

      Thank you, dear Faye. I actually put blogging pretty high on my priorities. For me it is more than a chance to write, and throw my “wisdom” to the wind! 😀 I pray that something I say can convince someone what a wonder it is to know Jesus. How wonderful to accept his grace and the free gift of eternal life available to those who know him. Much of your same goals, huh? My three little girls are here, so I’m off to color a bit before bedtime.

    what delightful distractions … my halo has a tendency to slip and tighten but haven’t choked yet …

    • oneta hayes says:

      If it slips to the neck, it’s called a noose. Don’t take that chance! 😀

      • calmkate says:

        lol … that is what I was implying Oneta …:)

        • oneta hayes says:

          Yes, choking would require the noose. 😀 Thanks.

          • calmkate says:

            sorry Oneta, my sick SOH

            • oneta hayes says:

              calmkate, I’m not sure just what has happened here. But I thought your comment was very cute and very original. I loved you sense of humor. I’ll be sure to watch my haloes better. I appreciate active bloggers who add to my thoughts. Keep ’em coming! I’ll be around to see you later. Think I have missed a couple of days. Kids were here again, then I caught (and still have) an infected eye that is slowing me down. Tomorrow the doctor will be in so maybe I can learn more about it. See you. 😀

              • oneta hayes says:

                calmkate, I went over to visit and found so many people and comments I decided to come back here to comment. You surely must be doing right! I noticed Tink was there She also like active blogging. I read your requests for tips. I think you have the keys! Keep reading and writing and commenting. 😀

              • calmkate says:

                take it easy Oneta you can’t read everything and I don’t expect you too … glad you got my SOH I just couldn’t resist with this header!

      Thanks. Kids have been here today, so I’m just now opening my computer (except for nursery rhymes). One is still here – staying overnight. The kindle is kindly babysitting right now. 😀
