RAIN AND OTHER THINGS






This was me yesterday.  A little damp around the edges.  Even though I knew it was going to rain, I didn't bother to use my umbrella.  Most of the time it just doesn't bother me to walk in the rain.  The only time I mind is if it is pouring.  Then I want to be able to see.  So I use what I lovingly call my portable roof.  At least it was pretty warm.  It got up to 51*F and down to 46*F.    This weekend the temperatures are supposed to dip and we are to get more snow.  Enough with the snow already!

There is no sleeping in today.  They are still working on the remodel of the house next door.  Lots of power saws, hammers, banging, talking (shouting) to each other.  They have been working on the house for over two months now.  The entire house was gutted and is being rebuilt.  It was a beautiful house to begin with.  I can't imagine what they are doing to make it better.  Since we share a wall on one side all the noise is magified!

Because we have Bible Study on Wednesday night at 7:00 and I don't get out of work until 6:00 Joe and I have gotten into the habit of getting a pizza for him and chicken for me on those nights.  Last week I stopped at Little Caesar's on the way home and picked it up.  But we both really like Dominos and so I ordered it online last night for the first time.  It was really cool.  I ordered it at 7:30 a.m. before I went to work for delivery at 6:00 p.m.  I was still at work but Joe said it came exactly at 6:00 p.m.  I love their website where you can watch the little cartoon man get your order, prep it, make it, bake it and deliver it.  You can send them encouraging remarks too like, "Go Dominos.  You're the boss!"  Ha, ha.

I ordered molten lava cakes for dessert too as a treat.  If you haven't had them, you must try them.  They were so good!  I told Joe this would not be an every week thing and he said, "Why not?  I love chocolate!"

We have a new lady attending church.  She has two beautiful little girls, Olivia and Elizabeth who are 6 and 5 years old.  She brought the little one to the Ladies' Bible Study on Tuesday (the older one was in Kindergarten) and she was very well behaved.  

Last night the three of them came to Wednesday Night Bible Study.  During prayer time I took the girls into the Sunday School room.  We had a Bible story about Palm Sunday and colored in pictures of palm leaves to hang on the bulletin board.  Then I read them a book and they played with the toys in the playroom.  It has been many years since I taught Sunday School so I was a little rusty, but I haven't lost my touch.  I now know I have to bring more things to keep them occupied next week.  And a snack.  I told them Miss Cherie will be their teacher on Sunday and Miss Kathy will be their teacher on Wednesday.  They were happy and clapped their hands.  So cute.

They are smart too.  They were trying to guess my age and they said 21.  Yes, they are really intelligent children.
 
Joe and I watched a movie the other night called "Joyeux Noel" about the Christmas 1914 ceasefire during World War I.  It was really good though much different from what I expected it to be.  I'll do a Movie Monday on it next week.

 I just looked at the time and realized I have to get off of here and get ready for work.  It's my 8:00 p.m. night so I also have to think of something quick to have for dinner.

Have a good day everyone!

Kathy

  1. I sure hope they get finished with the remodel soon. That must be hard to bear during the day when you are home. I like hearing about your Bible study and these sweet little girls. It's such a special time at that age. Enjoy your day sweet friend. Hugs, Diane

  2. That noise next door has to be hard to live with, but surely it wont be another two months before they are through. Sweet little girls just cant be beat! It is so good of you to keep them occupied so their Mother can attend Bible study. Have a nice afternoon.

  4. You know, I'm the same way. I don't mind being out in the rain unless I've just had my hair done. Oh and that picture of Piglet is sooo cute. I'm a big fan of Winnie the Pooh. I used to have an Eeyore nightshirt. I wore it every night until it actually started falling apart... lol

  6. Thanks for the Dominos tip. We had the pasta & it was really good. I'll have to try online next time. It was great meeting the new Bible study members. I didn't mind the rain either. I went to the PSPCA & even though we're closed for a doggie flu,laundry must be done!
    Have a super day!
