Answered prayer: My friend's brother D (see Apr 16th blog) came thru surgery well, and will soon be discharged from the hospital. The dr's feel everything is good, but because of one reason or another, healing will be slow. Thank you for your prayers for him; and please continue to pray for healing in God's timing.
This morning is pretty, but we're due rain showers later, maybe even a thunderstorm. Again tomorrow, and apparently chances of same for the first few days next week. Remember the line from "Camelot" where King Arthur is talking to Gueneviere (Spelling??) about living in Camelot? He said it only rains (or was it snow?) at night and in the morning it was all gone. Well, picky me, I'd like to see that: rain between the hours of say, 10 pm and 4 am. Of course, that would be bad for those folks who work at night, wouldn't it. God certainly knows what He's doing regarding the weather, even when it doesn't suit us.
And I'm still working on the sundress for my only grandddaughter. (She lives in Mississippi - MS ) We only get to see them about once a year, and I started making dresses for her when she was three. Now she's 7, and expects there will always be a new dress when we visit or they come see us. I don't really mind - I'm glad I can bring that bit of joy to her. Although I'm not going to this time, I have also sometimes made matchig shoulder bags. That tickled her pink.
I need to 'frog' (un-knit) a couple of rows of the capelet I'm making for my Mom - I made a mistake I could not fix otherwise. Where, (you ask) does the term 'frog' come in? It comes when I have to 'rip-it, rip-it' out what I've already done. The term is not an original w/me.
Ta-ta folks. Have a wonderful weekend.

I was soooo good this morning - now we'll see how the evening goes.
I ate some cantaloupe then treadmilled for 45 minutes. Can't remember what else I did before my hair appointment, but came home and painted my fingernails. After lunch we volunteered in our grandson's 4th gr class (will again tomorrow) and then I sewed a little. I've barely started Katie's sun dress, but really need to get on the stick and get it done. I tend to procrastinate, I'm afraid.
After dinner I went for a walk in my neighborhood - only about 15 mins, but a walk just the same. Up and down the slight hills I live in.
So, after I treadmilled, I ate a slice of whole wheat toast w/peanut butter and preserves. For lunch, I had a slice of leftover pizza, an apple and a fiber bar. Supper (my DH is such a good cook) was a grilled skinless chicken breast and lots of (mixed) veggies, along w/a sweet potato. So far, so good. Now is the worst time for me - after dinner. I tend to nibble or gorge. I have plans to not do that tonight, although I will have a 60 calorie cup of mousse my dau gave me.
Have a restful night, y'all.

Well, I started the day right - had 1/2 a grapefruit and a sip of coffee before using the treadmill. It's cold (relatively speaking) with a stiff breeze (almost wind), and it keeps spitting rain at us. Brrrr. After the treadmill I ate a bowl of Cherrios and had a glass of juice.
I cut out one piece of my granddaughter's dress, and am catching up on SP. In awhile I'll be taking one of my grandson's to a baseball scrimmage - the other (6 yrs) went to his scrimmage w/Grandpa already.
I cook on the weekends (my DH has weekday KP) so when Josh (10 yrs) and I get home, I'll be starting that. I'm planning on mac and cheese - the boys love it - w/some meat in it. Veggies, etc on the side.
Tomorrow we stay after church to count the offering, then home again for hamburgers (call Grandma a chicken about getting a big meal on the table). I think we'll have pizzas for supper - I'll have a bit, plus a big salad.
Yes, we have the boys for the weekend - Mom and Dad are in Philadelphia to celebrate their anniversary. I'm glad we're available to help out like this - I'm a firm believer that parents NEED to get away for a couple of days every now and then.
Too bad the weather isn't better - I know the boys would love to be outside more. Oh well, can't have it all all the time! LOL
Y'all have a great weekend. Attend the worship center of your choice and remember that God takes pleasure in us.
