Hello, friends. Hope you are having a great Tuesday. Yesterday we had weather around 80*F. (26*C.) but it seems like that was the last hurrah for summer. The temperatures are getting cooler and by this time next week it is predicted to be 20 degrees colder. I guess it's time to take the air conditioner out of the window and get ready for the fall.
I got a call from my doctor today with the results of my biopsy. Everything was clear -- no cancer. I have to have another ultrasound in 6 months to make sure, but then that is it. God is good!
This afternoon Joe and I went grocery shopping. It is so much easier and faster to go every week or two instead of once a month. We really needed water and a few other things. But that is it for September. One of the things I got was a mum. It was on sale for $2.67. I have been wanting to get some mums for the yard. I will look next time I go and see if I can get another one. The flowers look like this.
Do you know there are hundreds of varieties of mums? And they are each given a woman's name. This is Marguerite. I am excited to plant it tomorrow.
I also got my copy of Beverly Lewis' new book "The Stone Wall." It just came out on the 9th. I preordered it from Amazon and they shipped it, but lost it. I was just going to ask for my money back when it showed up yesterday. Now I want to start reading it.
But... it's Bible Study this morning. I am so glad to be teaching again. Joe bought us a box of apple cider donuts for a treat. Yum. We are beginning the first chapter of Titus. Last week we did an introduction including a map. I always like to put a map in the introduction for my students. It helps to put things in perspective as to where the book is being written to. We got as far as the first verse last week before it was time to end. I am not rushing the book. When we are finished, we are finished. We usually take the winter months off because there is so much to do for Thanksgiving and Christmas. And then the cold weather comes and no one wants to go out in that. Ice is nasty.
There is so much coming up this week. Something every day. At least I will not be bored!
See you soon.
