Since I've been a naughty, absent blogger this week, I thought I'd catch you up on what's been happening around here.
"Red, White, & Blue Day"
Buddy had his first visit to a new groomer. I asked the groomer to cut his hair short; she sure followed my directions! This poor dog doesn't even look like a Schnauzer now without his mustache and bushy eyebrows.
In the midst of a busy week of homecoming activities and various appoinments, I came down with a cold. I ran a fever for a couple of days, and now I'm fighting a cough. I've had this basketful of "friends" close by to keep me company and help me on the road to recover. Oh, you didn't know that chocolate is part of the protocol?:)
Yesterday I finally started to feel a little bit better but still didn't have a whole lot of energy. My only completed chore--clipping coupons.
When the housekeeper takes a few days off, the chores pile up quickly. Today I tackled some necessary tasks around our home. The tubs and showers got a good scrubbing.
A mountain of school uniforms were washed and folded. In fact, I got four loads of laundry done today...yipee!
As I finished folding the last load of laundry, this Bible verse on the back of a P.E. shirt caught my eye. What a simple reminder that God certainly gives us the strength we need to face the challenges that arise each day.~~~~~oOo~~~~~
Lord-willing tomorrow I will feel well enough to travel with a group of ladies from our church to attend a ladies' retreat. It's been almost five years since I spent two whole days away from my family; I'm not sure I'll know how to handle it!
I am praying that each of the ladies attending the conference will come away refreshed and encouraged. The Lord knew well in advance what He had planned for me this week, and I am confident that He has something special in store for me at this meeting. :)
I'll be back Monday with my Daybook entry and details on a special giveaway. Take care! :)
