In addition the table was covered with chocolates and candy hearts to snack on from the moment we walked in the door with an ample supply when the evening concluded. Somehow the excess ended up in my bag, lol…thanks to my table mates. The bag that weighed next to nothing when I arrived weighed over two pounds when we left. Too funny!
Mom and Dad needed a few groceries and I had a brain storm for my speaking engagement this coming Friday so instead of heading home we were off to the store. Although exhausted the laughter continued, maybe it was the exhaustion making us silly? Hmm…we dropped off my parent’s groceries before going home (so Dad would have all his supplies for our Ham dinner Sunday evening) and collapsing.
Today was a productive yet relaxing day. Prior to showering for church I painted a prop for my presentation, trial and error for a “special gift” for a certain few in attendance on Friday, and took photographs for my presentation – all before leaving for church. Pastor’s message was wonderful and motivating. With toasted cheese sandwiches and “The Help” playing on the DVD, our afternoon slipped away. Dad’s ham dinner was out of this world and the glaze he dripped every hour on the ham was super sweet. Loved it! We watched a movie on Hallmark with my parents afterwards.
With the woodstove reading 204 degrees when we left my parent’s house we braved the chilling outdoors to return to safely home to our loving dogs. Once in the door, with the leftovers in the fridge, we all assumed our positions. Ed watching sports, Mary getting ready for school and then chillaxin in front of the T.V. with her IPod on, and of course I completed the final stages of painting before retreating to my writer’s cottage to write this blog.
Mary is busy at work putting the final touches on tomorrow’s “Monday with Mags” so be sure to read it. I need to transform my “work table” back into our bed and snuggle in. 4:45 a.m. comes early yet the ideas are racing through my brain so we’ll see.
Thanks again for following my blog and please join me in prayer as I pray and wrap up my presentation for Friday evening. Pray ears, eyes, and hearts are open to the message God has given me ~ for healing ~ for hope to be restored!
