Got a good night's rest

Thursday, May 24, 2012

Got our flowers planted and mulched two flower beds last night. Still have a lot more to go but that's all we're doing before company comes this weekend! Had a good night's sleep! The night before had a lousy night's sleep and felt really tired all day. Not sure how I would do working in the yard last night...felt worn out before I started but really felt better afterwards. Only worked about 2 hours so we didn't kill ourselves.

I have volunteer petunias growing up in two areas...some had grown quite scouped them into pots and hopefully they will take off and make a couple of nice pots of petunias. Came in and made dinner and didn't get too much housework done. Will have to get on that tonight. Got the bedding washed and put on yesterday that's done.

Son may be able to hook us up with fun car for our friends to drive this weekend. Starting to get my focus on fun with our BFFs. We enjoy our times with them. Helps to blow off some steam.

Off to make it a great day!

Wow! So much for life slowing down!

Crazy week ahead and more craziness! Helping to plan for bridal shower for dear friends. God has truly blessed me with treasured friends. They treated me to dinner and dessert last night as we planned for bridal shower for one of my dear friends. We have been friends together since our children were little. Gradually we all three have gone to work full time. One of them is a nurse and we supported her as she went back to school, the other one works with children in the school system and I work in the insurance field. Different paths but we still get together once in awhile. Now another baby is getting married and we are planning a bridal shower when she comes home for a visit. We don't get together often but a couple of times a year. We are all busy ladies but we love the Lord and he keeps bringing us back together. Our lives have taken such different turns over the years and none of us are where we ever dreamed we would be....Treasured friendships! How precious they are.

Getting hair done tonight. Still have the flowers to plant....and NOW...our Best Friends are going to come out this weekend. I know best friends love you the way you are right????My house is a to get it put together before they get here. Still have to plant my flowers and now hubby wants to get in some mulch to put around the flowers after we plant them....I have Wednesday night to do it. I know it will get done. Been missing our best friends and we were just with them in February. She makes me laugh and I love to spend time with them.

Hubby had phone interview with new company building in our town. They said they would probably get back and let him know if he would be going further in the interview process this week. That would be a great answer to prayer if he could get a job so close to home..yet I'm ready for him to get back into the workforce however. I think the burden of supporting the family is wearing on me.

Got in a lunch time walk. Didn't see any deer while walking and as I was driving out of the nature center...saw movement and there was a deer standing in the middle of the field watching and grazing. The frogs were going nuts in the pond while I walk around it. Croak, Croak, Croak...the ducks were swimming around. It was a neat site. Fills my heart with joy to be out in nature and see some of God's creation.

Off to make it a great day!

    I think it is wonderful that you take the time to enjoy nature. So many don't. As for the busyness happening in your life right now it's wonderful that you remain so active. True friends aren't going to give a rat's.... about how your house looks, they are there to spend time with you, not your house.. lol..

I'll be praying for hubby to get that job...

Have a wonderful day ~ Hugs.. Donna

    I see all those things too, on my walks. I feel blessed that God and the deer consider me worthy to see them.

    Sweet, lady, this is unbelievable! It was filled with news and excitement.

Two important things on my list would just be enjoying friends that are tried and true and getting out in God's good nature this season.

Glad, so glad, you have the time to blog!

Worship the Lord

Sunday, May 20, 2012

Worked in the yard trimming bushes, raking and hauling clippings to the back. Was a good workout but worn out and sore. Took a break and went to local garden shop and bought some beautiful Wave petunias and flowers for the steps. Gorgeous! Lovin the flowers!

Ended the day with a nice ride in the "Baby". What a way to end the day! It was gorgeous weather out.

Took a bath and that seemed to help the aches and pains some....but didn't sleep well. Have been hot at night so put a fan on me and the breeze kept waking me up...not a good choice I guess. Have to come up with something else I guess.

Feeling OK this AM.

On Praise Team today and practise didn't go well Thursday night so we're meeting earlier to see if we can work out the bugs. Picking Mom up early as she'll stay with me through both services.

Planning to go bike riding with co-worker this afternoon! Looking forward to getting on the bike paths.

    We worship You, Lord, and thank You for another day of letting our light shine. Bless Kathleen as she enters this Sunday full of faith, good works, love for You, and others.

Rise and shine, beautiful lady, as others need to see the strength in you only God can give.

P.S. Hope those muscles ease and the rest comes after all you did yesterday.
