Last weekend Dannye Reigh, Pamela, and Emily worked the THSC Childrens Conference (CMT Conference). Emily really wanted to stay closer to the conference (we live about 45 minutes to an hour away), so she asked if I would mind helping Nathanael out with Arulai. Well, you know what a hardship that was for me, but I managed to find it in my heart to do it! So, while Em and the girls were teaching, Arulai and I were having a fun time at home.
Friday night, Nathanael spent the night in town with Emily, so Arulai actually slept at our house. She awoke Saturday morning and charmed her Papa into getting her up, then they both came to get me up. We had breakfast, and I began to see what Papa’s plans for the day were – sitting in front of the computer all day! He so rarely does that, but when he does he inevitably gets a headache! So Arulai and I begged him to take us on a quick golf cart ride. (I had an ulterior motive – I figured if I got him out of the chair, and outside, he would find something to do!)
Our “quick golf cart ride” turned into quite an excursion! Bill took Arulai and me down to the end of our road, then off we went into the forest. We rode down a nice trail/road for quite awhile before it became more dippy and muddy. But we were in an adventurous mood, so we just kept going! I’m so glad we did, too, because we began to see some wildflowers I’d not seen up nearer our house. Some of them I don’t remember ever seeing before at all.
This butterfly acted as though it was posing for Bill. So much so, as a matter of fact, when Bill realized his camera was on the wrong setting, this guy was waiting for him to come get more shots!
Bill snapped this shot of Arulai when we got back home. She was so relaxed after our long ride. She loves the golf cart so much!
Sunday afternoon, Bill and I were coming home from church when he asked if I’d mind stopping to see the newly opened Memory Park next to our Library. It is a gorgeous place, with plans to expand and develop it even more.
Every aspect of this park is a memorial. People made donations in memory of a friend/loved one and plaques, stepping stones, or other memorials were placed in that persons honor. We had lovely weather for a stroll around the pond.
There were benches every so often along the pathway. I’d have loved to have a photo of my hubby with me!!
It will make a lovely place for a photo shoot!
Well, I’ve stayed up way too late for my own good. I have to get up early in the morning for work. I hope your week is a good one!
God bless your day!!
