Last Saturday night we went out for supper with a couple from the church Joel is serving. Turns out it was their 55th wedding Anniversary so we felt privileged to celebrate with them. We had a good time visiting and eating at Ruby Tuesday's (their choice)! Ruby Tuesday's is my favorite place......so far. Well actually it is the only place I have eaten since venturing out into the world of restaurant food.
Last Sunday we headed to a nearby state park to walk after church. The flowers along the road were so pretty! We also walked the river road and around the paths in our association. Yesterday we saw the doe with her twins up at the neighbor's house enjoying her bushes. Mom took up a protective stance when she saw us, but as soon as we passed by they were back to having breakfast. Still not up to a 2 mile hike on a daily basis, but a 1.5 mile walk is the norm now. Yippee!

Love the colors and eye
I have been in this cleaning/organizing mood. Fall does that to me. I have gone through all the drawers in our dining room and kitchen and now am tackling our 46 plus years of pictures. We have photo albums from 1966 on, plus bags and boxes of pictures to sort through. It is very interesting and a bit sobering for me to see that around 8 years ago the pictures stopped increasing when everyone started taking and storing pictures on their phones and computers. And then there is Shutterfly and places like that. So, what it comes down to is we have hundreds of pictures of our older grandkids and less of the middle ones and almost none of the youngest. I am putting all pics into photo storage boxes but plan to get more printed off of grands and others. When reading, I feel something special about actually holding the book in my hand....and it is the same for me with pictures.
Joel spent part of last Monday wiring and installing a second light for the garage which makes things look a lot more uniform and brightens the area at night. Work is keeping him busy with Confirmation starting up and church and conference meetings. I like the congregation he is serving, but I still miss having him around 24/7.
I have been re-reading "My Heart, The Holy Spirit's Home" and catching up with magazines and blogs. We have watched a few Castle and Last Man Standing reruns, and I watched a really old movie about Peter Marshall, who served as chaplain in Washington for so many years. He was the husband of Catherine Marshall who has written some great books in her lifetime...like "Christy" and "Something More". She was quite a woman. What are you reading? How was your week?
Until next time................
