What a wonderful lazy Sunday afternoon it has been! There was a scheduled potluck tonight at church, but because so many people had mentioning going out of town, they canceled it. At first I was a little disappointed, because ... well I love a good potluck and this one was Italian in theme. But, now that I'm halfway out of my first nap I am seeing the benefits. I could be in there concocting a special casserole and I get to be here on the couch instead!
Another benefit of the day is having a daughter old enough to drive to Braums to get sundaes for everyone! (mine was hot caramel). YUM. Matt's mom and her hub John were here yesterday, John made his famous and my favorite penne pasta with sun dried tomatoes, olive oil, tons of garlic, artichokes, fresh herbs, and fresh tomatoes right at the end... oh yeah, and tons of fresh grated parmigiano regiano cheese too. I had leftovers for lunch today and it was even better than yesterday. I made my garlic bread so we're safe today from all those werewolves...
This week flew by like the past few. I think the routine of school makes time go by faster somehow. Izzy had a good week in school again and is still lovin' pre-k. I can't tell you how happy it makes my heart to know that she is thoroughly enjoying herself. Seriously.
I had lunch with Laura at Old Germany one day, it was delish and I enjoyed catching up with her life. Friday I took Iz to Bear. Afterwards we stopped and ate quickly with mom at Panera. You can tell I'm doing excellent at my diet by all the food talk huh? There's always next week.
I mentioned in my previous post the movie "the ultimate gift." I forgot to mention that it is a fox faith movie. I went to that website foxfaithmovies.com sometime ago and put a lot of the movies listed there on my blockbuster queue. I have enjoyed them so much.
Praying for ...
I'm so thankful that I KNOW that God answers prayers! Please leave any prayer requests you might have in my comments and I'll add you on. If I forgot you (like I did Darla last week) just remind me and remember I'm still half asleep :o). But, I want to pray for you and think prayer is very powerful and necessary.
- Izzy's healing.
- Susan's granddaughter Oksana, and Susan
- Darla, one of my oldest bffs from way back who is a minister's wife and stranded in a place she is not happy.
- Betty, who hasn't been feeling well.
- Michelle, Joe & Kayla as Joe is deployed next week.
- Zenaida's friend Vic who is in ICU after terrible motorcycle accident.
I'm so thankful for...
- God's love & forgiveness!
- Izzy's teachers and prayer warriors
- my family
- good friends
My sweet friend Judi isn't doing weekend reflections anymore. She has offered this to me if I wish to do it. I am going to put a mr. linky here for week in review if you want to share your review of your week with the bloggy group.
