Guess where I got to go to church today!

I love going to church up here! It is like stepping back in time! This is the inside of the Community House.

After church, we ate lunch at Shotgun Willie's! They had a wonderful Chicken Fajita Salad with lots of greens, grilled onions and peppers, and fajita chicken meat. They are famous for their hamburgers and onion rings, but after eating my delicious salad, I did not feel deprived at all! (I did, however, allow myself a couple of onion rings)

The rest of the afternoon was very restful. I came home and took a nap during the rain storm. I love the afternoon showers here. Woke up, ate supper, and then played marbles with the family. I won 4 games in a row, thank you very much! The reason this is significant is because I ALWAYS lose! No one ever wants to be my partner because they know we will lose! LOL!

We are headed back to Texas tomorrow for my aunt's funeral. Not looking forward to the heat, but it will be wonderful to see loved ones who I have not seen in years. While I know it will be sad, I also know that it will be a celebration of her life and we will share in much joy as we remember this remarkable woman and all the love and happiness that she brought in to all of our lives!

We will be coming back to Red River to finish out our vacation late Tuesday night. I am not sure if I will have access to internet while I am gone, so I may not be able to do my regular check in until Wednesday. So, even if I am not able to keep up with you for the next few days, please know I will still be thinking of you and cheering you on from wherever I am!

Let's make it another great week!!!

    You are doing great. Even on vacation you are managing to eat within your limits and do
exercise daily. Way to go. So proud of you. I'm sorry to hear of your Aunt's passing.

    The church service does look like a step back in time - and I love it!

You're continuing to do such a great job with your new life habits, not always easy to transition them to the vacation mentality, but you're amazing!

I don't envy you the trip back for the funeral, but I'm glad you'll all get to go back to Red River to finish up your long awaited time away.

Be well, my friend.
:) Gail
