Monday Morning Chat
Good morning! Did you all have a nice weekend?
I did. The weather was cool but beautiful. Makes it so enjoyable to be outside!
The mowing season has begun here. This past week I had a jacket and gloves on while mowing - I felt like I was mowing in the autumn instead of spring! The grass is looking really good, deep green. We live in the country so we don't try to have a pristine lawn. As long as its green I'm okay, and I am okay with Dandelions and Wild Violets in the grass as well.
Saturday I took some Murphy's Oil soap to my dining table, our coffee table and side tables. I think they are happier now, I know I am.
Also on Saturday, being the spontaneous kind of girl that I am, I decided I did want to go see Chonda Pierce at a local church THAT evening. So I called my Mama, and she wanted to go too. I got online, ordered tickets, printed them off and two hours later we were on our way! We met up with some ladies from my church.
What an amazing woman, Chonda is. I'd never seen her in person, and it was such a great night. We laughed, we cried, we all want to be her friend. Becky said the same thing this morning! Chonda is real, people. She has had such a difficult life. But she allows God to lead her through it and is such a testimony to God's faithfulness.
Sunday was a good day too. Sunday School, Worship, and then we went to lunch with friends. That doesn't happen often, the eating out with friends part. We went to a local restaurant, and the 16 of us sat at three tables. One kid table, one older kid table, one adult table. The kids are all so well behaved and they laughed together and ate pizza while we grown ups enjoyed our lunch. Then we came back here to the Cottage. The kids played in the creek and got muddy and they rode horses, and we enjoyed the sunshine, and good conversation and just a relaxed day.
I'm feeling quite refreshed, and am so thankful for good fellowship.
This is our last week of school. Friday, we hit our 180th day. Of course we live a lifestyle of learning, but the formal part will be done until August. I'm so proud of my kids, they've had such a good year.
What did you do this weekend?
