It seems days turn into weeks before I know it, and I haven’t written at all! I think about what I’ll write all the time, but never take the time to sit down and write my thoughts down. It’s way too late tonight, but I want to write a minute before I head to bed.
Dannye Reigh got all the Christmas decorations down, including the tree, and now I suddenly remembered we live in an unfinished house! It sure was sad! The walls are so bare! But, it really urges me on to see what steps we can take to “do the next thing” (one of my favorite Elisabeth Elliot quotes) to finish the house. I’ve begun watching my favorite designer again – Sarah Richardson. There are only about 3 seasons of her shows available on the computer, but I could watch them over and over. Her tastes are much like mine, although she has a whole lot more money to spend than I do. That’s okay – I get lots of ideas from her, and often Bill comes across some of the items she uses to decorate, and he gets them for FREE. The perks of being collector – the kind who collects anything and everything!
Jeanne and I are gonna bite the bullet and sign up for Weight Watchers together. We are both wanting the accountability, and I really need a program to follow. I’m one of those that needs boundaries and rules. I’m really excited about it, though. I even got some new walking shoes yesterday, fully intending to get off the couch and on the road this morning.
Instead, I woke up this morning to [lovely, beautiful, wonderful] miserable rain! I couldn’t walk, so I decided to go shopping!
I guess shopping isn’t exactly what I did today. I still don’t have my driver’s license, so I went to deal with that. TRY to deal with that, I should say. I found out that you need I.D. to get your driver’s license. I don’t have any I.D. because it was all in my purse that was stolen…LAST AUGUST! The good news is that I can use a variety of things for I.D., such as a W2 in my name, a voter’s registration card, or even my marriage license. So I will go back later this week, I.D. in hand!
It’s getting very late, but I wanted to ask prayer for my niece, Melissa. Missy is our baby (she’s 14, but the baby of our family) and she is such an animal lover! Her horse got very sick yesterday, and despite their efforts, he died this morning. My heart just breaks for our Missy – Moonshine was definitely a one-owner horse! He loved Missy as much as she loved him. Please pray for her, and even the whole family. It was a very tough loss.
I’m heading to bed now – tomorrow is Family Day, so we’ll be heading to Starbuck’s early in the morning before coming back here for stuffed baked potatoes.
God bless your day!
