7 Happy Things

Yes, I know you will all be in shock. I have actually had some very good things happening.
1. I was lucky enough to spend time with my great niece and nephew. They are 8 1/2 and 16. We went to a 4th of July celebration in a park put on by a local church. My husband, Mr. & Mrs. F. joined us at the park. They have a big stage where they do family friendly skits, they sing and dance. It is good clean fun. When it gets dark the have a pretty good fireworks display. I was a little worried about the 16 year old, but I caught him more then once having a good time. He took very good care of his little sister. He watched her like a hawk. I was very proud of him. They where both very well behaved and polite.

2. I can't wait to show you the new quilt I made for Mrs.F. I am so happy the way it turned out.

3. I went out t0 lunch with my sweet sister- friend. We went to Indian food. It was so good. I had the tiffins with curry beef and lamb YUMMY! She and I have similar taste in food and the people who we pick to be in our lives. This can be a good thing or sometimes not. She can make me laugh. She always makes me laugh.

4. Church was really good today. I am glad I went. Sometimes its a battle to get myself going, but now I am glad I did. I feel at home at my church. I love my pastor because he is not the usual run of the mill preacher! When he came to the church about 15 years ago, he was young and cocky. That's why I liked him. He has mellowed with age, but he still makes you think about God and us and how we treat each other. I felt encouraged today by his message.

5. Today I went out with my dear sister- friend. We drove out to a growing delta town. It was peaceful to look at the boats out in the water. I enjoyed chatting with the fishermen on the shore. It is a cool and breezy day. Perfect. We caught up on each others families news. We stopped at a fruit stand, I bought an apricot pie, white corn on the cob and tomatoes. We stopped at In & Out. It was a great a diversion from the stresses of my daily life.

I love spending time with my sister- friends. I am so blessed to have them in my life.

6. Mr. F is putting in my new shower. He is doing a good job. I am so excited to have my own bathroom again! It is a tiny bathroom. Most people get claustrophobic in it. Not me. I can't wait to go pick out the fixtures and the shower door. I am also going to paint my little bathroom "robins nest." It is light blue with brown speckles.

7. Mrs. F cooked dinner tonight for my husband and Mr. F. She made angel hair pasta and meat sauce. I will have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow at work.

The kids LOVED going to the park/event with you! Brother even shared stuff with us, and usually we have to drag info out of him! Everyday Sister brings up something else she say or did at the park.
Thanks so much for taking them! I'm so glad you got to spend some time with them while they were visiting. There were also thrilled to be able to visit with Papa!
