Saturday's Scribbles

Good Saturday evening to you from our cold and snowy part of the world.  Yesterday morning I walked on dry pathways around our association, and by this morning we had 9.5 inches of snow on the ground! Winter has arrived.



Friday I got called to come in early for radiation, since the roads were getting slippery.  My treatments are usually at three each weekday, but it seems that our day still focuses around them.  I see the radiology oncologist every Tuesday but otherwise it takes only an hour out of our day.  We try to walk in the mornings, get done what needs to get done, and then after treatments in the afternoon I take it easy until supper.  So far, so good.

Joel preached and officiated at a baptism and communion for a local Lutheran church last Saturday. We headed to the last Wednesday night of teaching on healing, and Thursday morning I went to Bible study at church.  Friday morning Joel went to his colleague group, and today we walked at the mall, then went out for lunch with friends, before coming to the house to visit.

This week I have been reading a John Lake book, catching up on my Guideposts magazines, and watching a few online teachings.  We have not watched any movies except a Christmas  one on the Hallmark channel.

Speaking of.......I am getting in the mood for Christmas!  It is hard not to when everywhere we go there are trees, lights, ads, and music playing.  "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas"    And the family will be home!!!  I ordered our photo cards and wrote the yearly newsletter this week.  Are you waiting until after Thanksgiving to decorate for Christmas?  We are....but it is tempting not to!

Until next time.....................

I'm so glad to read that the treatments have been going well so far! Praise God! We have a lot of snow too, I wasn't quite ready for that! Our family will be here for Thanksgiving and I wanted it to look like Thanksgiving, not Christmas for our first meal together in our new home. I'm trying to downsize on decorating too, keeping everything a bit more simple has been nice. You continue to be in my prayers.

Since we bought an artificial tree - (in deference to my wildfire fears up here in the mountains) - we can decorate any time! I firmly decided that we were going to do that in November this year, before Thanksgiving. Well, ahem, that good intention did not happen. It's OK, I'll compensate by letting it stay up all January!!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours! May it be filled with faith, family, friends, fellowship...OK, and lots and lots of food!

GOD BLESS!

Oh, my word...9.5 inches of snow....ALREADY. It's beautiful, though. You just take care traveling in it, sweet Lady. Just wanted to wish you a very happy THANKSgiving. Still remembering you in prayer and thinking about you during your treatments. Never forget....YOU.ARE.LOVED!!! Although I don't stop by as often as I should, I still think about you.
