Good Morning, Morning Glory! I thought I'd take you on a quiet walk to see some pretty things, before I tell you about our girls group.
First, a quick gander around the front garden - yahoo - another pepper!
This is for Angela and Bob because they buzz around on a similar bike. I am putting this close to the top of this post, so Angela can show it to Bob with out going through all my photos. I crept up to the house to get a good shot.
You know how I LONG for water? This is it for me. If I want to see the sea, too bad. I can see this determined little trickle though. I like it.
I met this dog on my walk. The girls walking him gave me permission to photograph him. His name is Wizard and he looks like I feel this morning - borderline sluggish and tired. Thanks, Wizard.
If you had lots and lots of money and you could (and wanted to) build a custom home, wouldn't you want to employ some of these classic features? Note the three car garage, though. It sort of takes away from the homey feel (and there was another little garage, too!) But, it's woody and serene looking just the same.
If it's so cloudy out today, why am I mopping my brow with a hankie? I think it is because I am 50.
Ahhhhh . . . hello, pretty leaf! I'll see you on the ground in a month or so. I'll pick you up, put you in a fat book, and keep you for myself.
And, I shopped and cooked in anticipation of our girls night. May I just say it was quite a bit noisier than my imagination planned?
Jenny was tired (but hungry!) and BEANS the Pom has infected ears. Below, Jenny is writing in the log I made. Her "status update" read "pregnant and ache-y" and Kelli's read "sick and busy." April wrote "good" and I wrote "happy to be loving my girls."
Birdie doesn't feel good at all. They caught colds last weekend. She had a lot of very sad moments, but still roared around and around with CB.
Oh, it's all okay. It's JOYFUL in fact! Even though Kelli sounds and feels weak and tired, she gave the kids a happy, fast ride around the yard in the wagon! Look at Finn!
So, though nobody gave the chicken casserole I made a 10 and our dining experience was a circus, we gathered together, pondered God's powerful word and Jesus' habit of getting alone with the Father, and spent time together. Done and done.
Oh! If you feel led to leave a comment today (please?) would you give me YOUR status update?
Side Note: If you are visiting from facebook (thanks for stopping by!) and you wish to make a comment, just click on where it says 2 comments (or how many comments have been posted so far) and you'll see the pop up box. Make your comment (you can choose individual ID and simply enter your first name) and then you'll have to do a little decoding the letters so they know you are not a machine, but a real person and then submit. I realize that not everyone lives in blog land like I do, and sometimes it takes a while to figure it out. Also, a helpful bit of info is "when in doubt, scroll up or down and you may find your answer"! Also, move your mouse over stuff and you'll often find the link you need.
Thank you again for your status updates, friends!
