Our day started out at a slower-than-normal pace. Last night Mr. C preached at Landmark Baptist Church, just south of Atlanta. Pastor O’Steen (no relation to the one you’re thinking of) and his church folks always make us feel right at home. After the service our family enjoyed sharing a meal with the O’Steens at a Mexican restaurant. The food was delicious, and we enjoyed our time of fellowship together.
Mrs. O’Steen, one of my closest friends, is a very gracious, thoughtful pastor’s wife. We’ve known each other since we were kids, and it’s such a blessing to have someone from “home” just over an hour away from us. She presented us with a wonderful basket of treats to take home. Notice all of the “fall” goodies; she knows what I like! 🙂
Since we arrived home very late last night, I let the kids sleep in this morning. I would rather us start our day a little bit later than usual than have four grumpy kiddos dragging around. While I like having a loose schedule, it is my helper and not my master. Flexibility can be a very good thing. We didn’t start our lessons until 10:00, and by then everyone was well-rested and ready to get to work.
This evening my men had a meeting at church, so we had a “girl’s night” playing games and watching a video together. Lil’ Nut and Curly Girl played Hungry Hungry Hippos. Somehow we always end up losing a few of those little white marbles. I’m sure they’ll turn up the next time I move the furniture to vacuum underneath. 😉
Tomorrow morning Sassy has an appointment with the vet. I don’t like to schedule morning activities, but she has to be there at 8:30. Sassy is going to be spayed and have her front paws declawed. We’ve researched to pros and cons of this procedure, and we believe it’s the best thing to do for Sassy. Lord-willing all will go well with our sweet little kitty’s procedures.
I am all over those M and Ms I see in the basket. What sweet friend and fun gifts.
Blessings on Sassy!
Cool basket. How thoughtful!
Sounds like you have a great evening…
Praying for your kitty,
Great basket! *grins*
Mrs. C says
I’m not even going to tell you who ate all three bags of the M&M’s already. (blushing) Let’s just say chocolate is my weakness.
How sweet of your friend! That’s a FULL basket! Those little pumpkins are so cute, too.
I agree with your thinking on school times. Somedays, it’s just better to start later.
Jen in MS says
Love the basket! That was so sweet of her!!
I love your saying about the schedule is your helper, not your master! That’s excellent!
How’s Sassy doing? When we had my cat spayed, she was very sore for several days. I felt so sorry for her! I hope your kitty is doing well!
Have a great day!
What a sweet basket your friend gave you. The pumpkins are very cute!
Oh, I used to love hungry hippo!
