|ST. PATTY'S DAY HELLO FROM JD AND VINNY!|
I will start by wishing you all a Happy St. Patrick's Day! I will admit we don't do much around here to celebrate it, but have always thought it is all pretty fun. Our week-end was R E L A X I N G which is just what we needed. Sat. we ran a couple of errands and then went over and picked up my oldest son's two youngest....Jeffie and Cody....and finally went and saw the Lego movie. They have both been wanting to see that for a while, and it finally worked into our schedule, lol. It was really pretty good as kid movies go, and the boys LOVED it which was the important part, lol. After the movie we went by Joe's studio where he and his wife were cleaning and hung out for a while with them there before we headed back home for a quiet night of barbeque and TV. Sunday we headed down to San Diego for church. James did something a little different for his message (we are going through the book of Revelation) this week as yesterday was the Jewish holiday of Purim. I guess the tradition for the Jews celebrating this feast is to read the entire book of Esther, which is just what he did stopping only occasionally for a little explanation or added information. It was ALL really good, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. After service James had a luncheon with his board, but we went back to their house with Larissa and the grandkids and had lunch and hung out with them for a while. After that hubby stopped at a Joannes for me so that I could pick up a couple of things. I never had finished up the bedding I was making for Vinny as I had stopped to get all the other things done for Jessie's coming baby. I felt kind of bad as Vinny has been in his new crib for a couple of months now WITHOUT his new bedding (except for the quilt which he can't even use yet, lol). I had all of the fabric I needed, but I didn't have the pads for the bumper pads she wants and a couple of other things. After we left Joannes, we went by Joe's house as they had invited us over for dinner. And trust me, a dinner cooked by his wife Leah is NEVER one I turn down as she is just such a fantastic cook. We had barbequed chicken, rice, and wonderful fresh veggies and I ate more than I should have I will admit. We visited with that set of grandkids for quite a while and then finally headed home after a full and busy day. Honestly it is just my favorite kind of day. Beautiful warm weather, Church with a wonderful worship time and message, and then LOTS of time with family and little ones. How blessed I am.
I listened to week 5 of the Beth Moore Daniel series this morning, and honestly I don't know if I can express enough how much I am getting out of this study! It is just soo good, and she is such an anointed teacher. It has made me think about my life and my priorities and my desires and is really very challenging. I am praying that it might make a permanent change in my heart and my spirit. Then I got busy and got one of the 3 sheets done that I intend to make for Vinny. They are quick and easy. I almost can't bear to admit however, that I did indeed over do it with all of the sewing I did for the shower and Jessie's coming baby as I am REALLY feeling it in my neck and back of my head. Guess I had my head and neck bent soo much in the same position that the muscles there are both inflamed and sore. I have no one to blame but myself, and really shouldn't have spent sooo many hours soooo many
I am not much for just sitting around doing nothing....just not me. Don't get me wrong, come a certain time of day I do that REALLY well too, but I like to be busy during the best part of the day. So I am thinking I am going to get off of here and and go outside and work on my porch for a while pruning some plants and cleaning up a bit. Why do I think I will probably just get another part of this rickety body sore? lol
This is by far the CUTEST video you may ever see in this humble grandma's opinion....sooo cute. It kills me. He gets soo dramatic at the end he forgets where he is....ENJOY!
