Week in Review

Wow, where do the days go.  Several times this week I thought about sitting down to write and before I knew it the day was over.  I still am struggling in my efforts to observe Lent.  Giving up the items I have mentioned has not been so much a problem, it's my finding other things to put in their place instead of focusing on the Lord. How easily I am distracted and pulled away.  Reminds me of a line from my favorite Hymn, "prone to wander, Lord I feel it, prone to leave the God I love".....

I did take several pictures this week and is what life looked like:

A week ago Tuesday, I was down at Mom and Dad's to get my haircut.  Afterwards we headed out to dinner, just the 3 of us.  Cannot remember the last time it was just us 3.  Had a wonderful time eating and listening to Mom and Dad bicker at each other :)   They really should take their act out on the road.

Sunday night we finally threw out the legs

these mannequin legs where brought home by DD before Christmas.  She found them in a dumpster at work.  They stood in our dining room all through Christmas, it was finally time to let them go.

Friday night DF and I went to Mom and Dad's to set up their printer, then met up with relatives at McDonald's to visit.  It's amazing how fast 3 hours can go by in a McDonalds.  Part of the time was spent visiting with a poor soul who had what appeared to have been Alzheimers.  This eldely lady spent a good deal of time talking to us and showing us her pictures (several times).  When we got there she was talking with my aunt and we figured they knew each other.  That was not the case...she then proceeded to speak with each of us women.  Finally she headed back to her husband (who was sitting in a booth watching TV) and he escorted her out to their car.  I think her visiting with us was a nice break for him.

Yesterday was so nice that after a brief time working in the office, DF and I decided to head out and enjoy the weather. 

We had a late lunch here

Stopped by one of our favorite antiques store (didn't buy a thing) and then just drove around.

I never cease to be amazed by the giant Longaberger basket.

It was an absolutely gorgeous day...we still have snow on the ground but it is melting.  Temps are warming up....spring is on its way.  And even though I truly enjoy winter and will be nice to see some green grass. 

I really must try to post more often....this is really long.

In His grace,
