Our friends left before it was even bright and early last weekend. They made it home at a decent time having driven the fifteen hours back to their home. It was so nice to have them.
Saturday Michael, Sean, Tiffany, and I went to the waterpark for a couple of hours. It was fun. I even went down the slide. Last time I went, Tracie and I just waded in the water and rode the lazy river.
Sunday we visited another church. It would be an okay church to go to if there were no others to try out, especially since it is less than fifteen minutes away. However, we still have some churches to try, so we’ll see how it turns out.
I mentioned that Stephi makes cards. Well, she brought me a birthday card and a box of cards to give.
Here’s the card she made for me. I love how it is three-dimensional.
Our friends are not big movie buffs but we pulled out a couple of old movies to watch. The first we watched was How to Steal a Million with Audrey Hepburn. I think they enjoyed it. It is a very clean movie, if you can get around the deception in it. Paul said it was predictable but enjoyable. I personally don’t believe it was predictable though.
The other movie, although perfectly clean, is a little more risque, I think. But it was completely UNpredictable. It is If a Man Answers, with Sandra Dee and Bobby Darin.
This week started out good. Monday was reading day and I spent some time reading the last of the Lunar Chronicles, Winter. I enjoyed the series. We’ll talk about it on an upcoming video on our youtube channel, Joyous Jabbers. Lauren and I have read and enjoyed it. Tiffany is planning to read it soon. I’m hoping we can record a video with Lauren, talking about the series.
So, I finished Winter. Then I read The Mustang Breaker by Stephen Bly, which is the sequel to Memories of a Dirt Road Town. I immediately picked up the final in book in the trilogy, I Wish I’d Known You Tears Ago. I finished those yesterday and have now put them on my wish list. Now I’m wondering which of his other books I should try.
We had a storm roll through Tuesday evening. Unfortunately the electricity went off for a while. That is not good in the heat. Since it was evening and had rained, it was cooler outside with the slight breeze. So Tiffany and I went outside and read. We sat in the chairs under the Mimosa tree, thus occasionally we’d get a bit of water dropped down on us. I was quite glad when the electricity came back on.
I had a horrible migraine headache this week, that left me weak. It forced me to take a day off. I tried to sleep it off like I normally do, but it did not work at all. Tiffany was awesome and helped me through the day. I spent most of that afternoon playing games on the Switch.
We had a horrendous storm early Thursday morning. The thunder and lightening was so loud it startled all of us awake at about 4:30 in the morning! I’ve never seen the color red in lightening before but I did that morning.
I ended up needed to take a recovery day that day. I spent the day reading mostly. It was nice to finish the Horse Dreams Trilogy by Stephen Bly. Of course, those events all caused Tiffany and I to move our errand day. We don’t really like moving errand day but it’s nice to have the option.
Well, I’m going to run for now. We don’t have any plans for the weekend. I hope you have a good weekend.
Until next time, God bless,
