Getting some much needed house cleaning done in preparation for daughter's arrival next Thursday!


Fabulous Friday

Friday, September 21, 2012

Made it through Thursday! Thankfully the day wasn't too crazy. Got in a noontime walk. Saw a snake for my second day. They have both been little and probably wanting the warmth of sunshine....but not liking to come upon them. Not too crazy about snakes. Gets my adrenaline going ha! ha!

Met up with co-worker for her voice lessons afer work. Because of a difficult situation at church there has to be 3 people around when there is a male/female situation. She is wanting to be on our Praise Team and music minister is working with her. She's kind rough around the edges and very country which isn't bad but he's trying to smooth off her rough spots. Teaching her to sing on key etc. She's coming a long. A slow process...her husband has a country band and she sings with them. She is also having to learn to listen to others instead of belting out the song. Hoping to help her get plugged in some place and find her nitch...

Fabulous Friday...we'll see what today brings. Wonder if there will be any snakes on my noontime walk today???

Hubby finally started painting/staining our deck. He's had it cleaned for awhile. He is so meticulous...the engineer in him. Neither one of us like to paint. At this stage it will take him a year to get it done. He's put it off so long now the weather is an issue. He got 3 sections of railing done yesterday. Then with the threat of rain we had to cover it all up last night as they told him it needs 24 hours before rain can touch it. It will be a good job when he's done but slow.

Daughter comes home next weekend. Also hubby's birthday. Guess I should think of something to do for him....

Off to make it a great day and see what wildlife I'll see at work (ha ha) and my noon time walk!

    Fortunately we only have garter snakes. Equally DH only waterproofs the deck once a year.
Very odd about the voice lesson/ church happening. Went though that about youth group though years ago and it is hurtful for these "man made" rules in the church.
Looks like a great weekend!

Terrific Thursday

In the office by myself the next two days...praying it goes smoothly...if it's crazy I can only take one person at a time and they will have to be understanding. Praying to be calm and a beacon today.

Planning to get out for a noon time walk...will probably need it!

Off to make it a great day!

  Your prayer will be heard, and you can be sure the Lord is on your side.

    A beacon for Christ Jesus seems to be my message today. May you shine and lead others along life's way, Kathleen!

Wacky Wednesday

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Got a massage after work last night. It is one of the most comforting things. My shoulders are in knots from being on the computer all day. She knows just the right spot for the muscles and can follow them all the way down and up the muscles. Just for those few moments at the end it feels like everything is ok...the joints have stopped hurting...the knots are gone. Interesting how comforting it is to me. I feel calm and relaxed for a few moments before I step back on the hectic world and face pace of life. It's like a stop in time...a calmness...and then we get back to "normal". I try to treat myself to that once in awhile. It seems like one of the best things I do for myself and how I have neglected myself over the years. Try to treat my daughter and daughter in law to massages once in awhile. It does wonders for them too. Both of them carry their stress with them also.

Thursday/Friday I'm in the office my myself. Hopefully it isn't as crazy and stressful as it was for co-worker last week. She didn't get out until after 6 pm.

Off to make it a great day! Planning to take Mom to Curves after work!

Terrific Tuesday

Made Curves last night with Mom. She seems like she's doing OK. She worked a good portion of the circuit and went around twice. At least she is moving

Had sad news from our son last Wednesday on our trip out to Missouri for funeral that their adoption had fallen through. Birth mother just packed up and moved away. They are so sad but know they will get through this season. These are the times you wish you could do something to help your kids and take away some of the pain...but you can't. They are back in the pool for a baby but there are 14 couples and not babies right now. God will make a way when there doesn't seem to be one. Seems like doors close at every direction. He's growing and molding them. Fortunately their jobs are keeping them busy right now and I think that helps them move forward and not dwell on it all the time. I sometimes wonder if God is waiting to do the miraculous...when all doors seem bless them beyond their dreams....
