LSNED: 10th - 12th

I'm using 12x12 divided page protectors for my LSNED lessons this year, with two 4x6 sections for each day. I'm reading Shimelle's prompts each day, however I'm using those more as a reminder to be aware of what I'm learning (or remembering) throughout the day rather than using the prompt idea itself. Here's a look at three more things I've learned this month.

I spent the day at home last Tuesday and had to remind myself that a quiet day at home can be productive or not . . . it's up to me! I decided to make it a productive day and moved my scrapbooks, photo albums and mini-albums to our new Expedit shelf unit in the front room, which I'll call our Memory Shelf.

Wednesday was the first day of the Bible study I'm leading this fall, and I learned there are nine ladies signed up for the Bible study from five different churches.

Thursday I enjoyed an inspiration day with Cheri. On our tour of Southfork Ranch I learned that several things had changed since Robbie and I had been there last year.
*Jock & Miss Ellie's room at Southfork was converted into the Mexican hotel room crime scene where JR was killed & the filming of those scenes took place inside Southfork. (This is significant because in the original Dallas series, the only filming done at Southfork was outside - all inside scenes were filmed in California.)
*Larry Hagman filmed his last scene the Tuesday before he died on Friday. (He was 81-years-old and passed away the day after Thanksgiving last year.)
*Elana's cottage is still set up and ready for filming to begin in October.

I'm so glad I prepped my journal cards and chose my divided page protectors before the month started because it is making it quick and easy to get these lessons recorded!


  1. I'm so out of touch with tv I didn't even know Dallas was still going/had restarted. Remember people asking me about it 'as you are an American' and having to explain there was a wee bit of difference between oil people in Dallas Texas and the Quaker community Tri-State area ;)

  2. Your Tuesday reminder certainly resonated with me!!!

  3. I think it's awesome that so many churches are represented in your Bible study.

  4. Had a lovely catch up Melissa.....loving your LSNED pages and your 'twenty words'

  5. That is a great memory shelf you have there… I am always impressed by your productive organisation on and off the scrapbook page :).


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
