Saturday Sursee :: Hide your Laptop in a Padded Envelope

Hey friends,

Check this out.  Here is a great way to carry your laptop around and hide it from spying eyes.  computer-cover

My friend is using a really fun graphic padded envelope from Target to carry her laptop to work.  Shhhh. Don’t tell.

Now when she leaves her computer on a desk or it is sitting in the front seat of her cute little car, no one knows that it is a computer.  It is perfectly camouflaged.

The double Sursee of this idea is that when the envelope gets old, she uses it to mail something.

Super easy Sursee- a two-fer.  You are welcome.

 

What Makes You Feel Whole?

taos-tin-works

Just read a little article about different creators and what inspires them and teaches them and keeps them going.  One gal listed six things that she relies on to make her feel whole.

Kids. Love. Business. Health. Travel. Spirituality.

Hmm.  What would I write down if someone asked me that question?  What makes me feel whole?

Just off the top of my head I would say:

Knowing and being known by Jesus.

 Reading and hearing God’s Word.

Being out in God’s Creation.

Loving and being loved by Craig and the boys.

Loving and being loved by Family and Friends.

Creating.

and if I get to say seven—Music- singing, playing and listening!

So what would your list be?  What things do you touch every day to help you stay whole?  What a good practice to think through this question and then make sure you are touching these things each day.  Your Sursee is to make a list for yourself and tell someone about it.

I would love to hear in the comments below.  Inspire me.
