Good morning, friends! Happy Sunday! Can you believe this makes the 20th week of me blabbering about myself! And you’re still here!! Thank you for visiting, again. Grab your tea, iced or hot, make yourselves comfy and let’s talk! 🙂
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: it’s been a busy week for me. On Wednesday, I had to take my mom to the eye doctor, after she sat on her glasses, to have them repaired. Then Alyssa’s car had trouble and had to stay overnight at the station to be fixed. So on Friday, not only did I take my mom to the hairdresser, but I was Alyssa’s chauffeur, taking her to her puppies, so she could walk them. All this when I’m not supposed to be driving. I felt it Friday night but you do what you have to when the family needs you.
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: I have been working on a new poetry book. It’s one with poems relating to God, faith, mostly for inspiration. I have put my novel, (ironically “Devil’s Pond“, and yes, it’s been in the works for three years now), on hold until my health improves a bit. Although, it keeps nagging at me to come back. My muse is so bossy!!
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: on Friday evening, we went to a quaint park called Dahnerts Lake County Park, to hear our friend, Kooch, sing about the Lord. The highlight of the evening was a young boy, no more than 10, coming over and telling Kooch he remembered him from last year. The boy took a gospel (Kooch does all of this for free), and walked away. About 20 minutes later, he came back to tell us he called his friends and told them to find the guitar player in the park. His name was Emmanuel. For those who don’t know, the name means, “God is with us”. I don’t think this was a coincidence at all. He came back with two more friends, who also took the gospel. It was awesome to watch. ❤
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: on Saturday, we went to Turtle Back Zoo!! Oh my, such fun!! We spent almost five hours there. To say we were pooped at the end, is putting it mildly. Thankfully it’s only about 30 minutes from home. Here’s a peek at what we saw:
The two mails were vying for the win of the female. She was wondering when they’d knock it off already. Did you know that males use their necks when fighting, because it is the strongest part of their body? Amazing animals.
Want to see more zoo photos? Head over to the photography blog, Photos by We. I’ll be uploading them throughout the week (and probably beyond!).
If we were sipping tea and talking I would tell you: how incredibly beautiful the past two days were. Friday started out kind of dreary and rainy, but by the afternoon, the sky was so blue, with hardly a cloud in the sky. Saturday was in the low 80’s with blue skies. A perfect day at the zoo. Ah, summer. ❤
As for the week ahead:
If we were sipping tea, basking in the sun and talking I would tell you: I’m starting to weed out all the clothes that I don’t wear anymore. One of our pastors runs the “River Mission” for the homeless, and they’re always looking for donations, so that’s where my things will be going. I hope someone can make good use of them. 🙂
If we were sipping tea, basking in the sun and talking I would tell you: it’s time to be on my way. Church is calling, and then who knows. Another gorgeous day ahead! Have a blessed week ahead, my friends! ❤
