For those of you who have been knitting socks for a long time, think back to the first one you did: now you know how excited I am. I successfully (with telephone help from a friend) turned the heel last night and am now working the foot. Yes, I still have to 'master' the toe, but I expect to do that just fine in another day or so. But I'm so pleased with myself - I learned how to do something 'new'!

I just had to share my emoticon

Now, it's time to get ready to go to my grandson's class and (probably) listen to individual 5th graders read aloud to me.....I do so enjoy that.

I just did almost 30 minutes of (heavy) housework. Now that is behind me, and I also burned calories....double good!

My grandsons were out of school today, and while the younger went to a babysitter's, I watched the older one at his house (so he can play w/friends and/or the Wii). Then my DH (after mowing for hopefully the last time this year) picked up the younger grandson and us, and we went out for lunch. After that, we swung back by their house, picked up their mini-pincer and drove to a dog park. It's a huge place, with separate fenced areas for dogs over/under 30 pounds. All of us had a good time. It was nice to watch the dog (and younger grandson) run all over the place and play with other dogs.

I'm home alone with my dog while DH is watching the two boys at their house. Soon, I'll change places w/DH and he will start our dinner/supper. I'm so glad he wants to continue cooking during the week....I'm in charge on the weekends.

It's a busy week ahead of us, with helping at school (after voting tomorrow morning!) and at the animal shelter, plus a couple of appointments, etc. But I only have to sweep/mop the hard floors now, and plan to do that tomorrow afternoon.

Y'all have a God-blessed week.

Hallow-ed Day

Sunday, October 31, 2010

"This is the day the Lord has made; I WILL rejoice and be glad in it."

Our preacher sent an email this week, stating that his sermon was going to be on "Taking Off The Mask" so I wore the t-shirt I got at last year's Extraordinary Women's conference. The front message is "FREE to be real" - that was the theme last year. The sermon and my shirt went together beautifully. emoticon

The scriptural basis for the sermon was Psalm 139 - and those of you who are familiar with it might love that passage as much as I do. We are "fearfully and wonderfully made." The preacher's points were along the lines of:
The REAL God knows me, vs. 1-6
The REAL God is with me, vs 7-12
The REAL God's creative expression is me, vs. 13-16
The REAL God inspires awe, vs 17-19
The REAL God allows for honesty, vs 19-22
The REALGod wants the real you (me) to respond (to Him), vs 23, 23
It was a REALly good sermon.

It's after dinner (Sun dinner is always 'lunchtime'), and the dog has had her monthly bath. Now is my 'down' time - I plan to read the paper and take a nap.

Have a Sparkin-good week, y'all

10/24 evening

Sunday, October 24, 2010

As promised, here's my report on the baseball tournament......

The team Josh's team played lost a game yesterday, won their first game today, and went on to defeat Josh's team, 7 - 6. BUT, the score is misleading - it really wasn't that close a game. sigh. Josh's team got 4 runs in the top of the 1st, but sort of fell apart after that. They didn't even play well - I mean, they made numerous errors today, and stranded several players on base. emoticon

Still, it was fun cheering them on, and while that team is finished for the tournament, I had a good time watching the boys play this fall.

Have a good night's rest, and let's start a new day in the morning.

Sunday, after church, before ballgame

Sunday, October 24, 2010

I was feeling somewhat virtuous until I tracked my lunch on SP. sigh. Oh well, this evening is a new start. My good feeling came from the fact that I declined to take a 3rd piece of Italian bread and butter-substitute for lunch. Ok, so maybe I shouldn't have had any of it; but I did get 2 servings of veggies, too.

We'll be leaving in awhile for Josh's ballgame. I'll let you know the outcome later. I have my fingers, toes, and intestines crossed that his team will win and thus go on to the next level of play. (It's a tournament)

We had a good time w/the boys last night, and my dau and her hubby enjoyed their dinner out. I'm so glad we live nearby and can help out w/the boys. Just wish our other grandkids lived as close. "If wishes were horses, beggers would ride." Hahaha!

Have a great afternoon, y'all.
