Outside my window....It is a GLORIOUS day. I thoroughly enjoyed the stormy weather we had all week-end though. Soo different for So. California. It rained BUCKETS here on Sat. especially. We had some thunder and some hail too. It began to hail yesterday just as we were leaving church so everyone scurried to their cars quickly. I somehow ended up with all 3 of my grandkids in the car with me for a little while, in addition to 2 of their little friends. The hail was pounding on the roof of the car and they were all soo fascinated by it. Little Tella especially. Her eyes were as big as saucers, haha.
I am thinking.....that it is soo amazing that it is almost Easter time. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Spring and all it brings. The blooming flowers and trees. The cool breezes blowing in the window, and yet the still occasional shower storm.
I am thankful for....sooo much. I was thinking about all that this morning during my devotional time. Thankful for the rain yesterday, the sun today, the birds chirping, my cozy warm house, my hubby, my kids, my grandkids, and for full busy days. I could go on, but you get the drift.
In the kitchen....not much going on there yet, haha. I will be heading out to the grocery story though after lunch, and plan on getting everything I need to make chicken fajitas for dinner. Of course I make mine without the tortillas. I am STILL doing the gluten free diet, and I am not fond of corn tortillas. Besides, I like the insides the best anyway.
I am wearing.....baggy, comfy jeans, and a long sleeved warm yet light weight knit top that it is multi-colored blues and greens. I am still wearing my slippers too. It was really chilly after my shower this morning, haha.
I am creating....a rag quilt. Still in the EARLY stages but I am quite excited about it. More on that later.
I am going....SOMEwhere everyday the rest of this week. Tomorrow I have a nail appointment and a doc's appointment. Wed. I will spend the day at my mom's as she has a lot of errands she needs to run. Thursday is Bible study with the women, and Friday I am to do an upper GI series. DREADING that day I am not going to lie. But I need to get this taken care of. It is getting REALLY old. I do have some days that are not bad at all which is an improvement I guess, but I just want to be done with it. But that's another story, and another post.
I am wondering.....MANY things, haha. Let's see...I will try and share a few. I am wondering how it is that I am soo blessed, when I don't deserve it, I am wondering what the results will be of the testing I am doing for my tummy, I am wondering how long it will be before we will be able to make a trip to New Mexico to see Mike, Mel & Sam, I am wondering what a friend of my daughter's baby will be...she is having her test to find out this morning. Guess there is always MUCH to wonder about. Glad some things are definite and never have to be wondered about, such as God loves us and is on His throne, and all is in His capable hands.
I am reading.....I am just about done with the 3rd book in the Chronicles of the King series called Faith of My Fathers. It has been soo good that I can barely put it down. I honestly just can't imagine how hard it would have been to have lived through some of what went on during that time. And yet, so much of what goes on in other parts of the world even today is just as scary. One thing I think is hammered home over and over and over again is the importance of blessing Israel. They ARE God's chosen people. Gen. 12:3 I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed. I am also reading through the book of Acts right now. And, still studying James.
I am hoping....again, MANY things. But probably at the head of my list today is that my hubby closes a deal he has been working on now for a few weeks. He works soo hard, and I love to see his hard labor pay off.
Around the house....It is quiet here today. Oh, except for the sound of the birds chirping, the clock ticking, the dish washer and washing machine and dryer running, and Elvis alerting me to others out for their morning walks. ; )
A favorite quote for the day....most of my favorites are in the Bible...but picking one of my "other" favorites came from Bill Cosby...."I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody." Is that true or what?? haha
One of my favorite things....Is looking at pics of my grand kids, haha....And here are a few for you to enjoy...
