Catching up:)

Well it has been awhile since I blogged:)  I guess I should look at the last tine so I will know where I left off, but guess I will wing it!  September has come and gone, now October is almost over, so hard to believe! I have kept my self so busy that the days seem to fly by, come in and go to bed and start over, yesterday was my first day at home in months, I had told Steve I just needed to be home, so I planned it, Jill had ask to help with the girls which I loved, then Mika played all day with them and when school was out Peyton and Laila came over, I actually did some laundry, cooked, worked in the yard, Steve really got the yard looking much better, we have so been on the go that it was neglected, I have a friend who cleans for me so my house is usually always clean but there were things I needed to do, so I got it done:)

 Lovie Luv actually likes this:)

 Sydney wanted the big chair:)

 fun day with the girls, but boy was I tired:)
Steve and I both were sore when we got up today, but oh so worth it!!   I got all my nurturing done and cooked and clean, met all my emotional needs of being a Nana:)
Last Friday was the day I went with high school friends to Jefferson Texas, which is the neatest little town! We had a great time, the Lord touched me with more healing, my room mate had restless legs, and my mother had the same thing, as I laid there in bed, it so brought back sweet memories of sleeping with mother, then she took her sweet hand and caressed my face, she was asleep, but I knew it was the hand of the Lord helping heal me in missing mother, the next morning I shared with the ladies what happened and how God picked out my room mate, God did a lot that weekend in the nine ladies who went, I am so very thankful I went, I for sure would of missed a major blessing!
 my cat glasses:) and hat:)

 Bed and Breakfast we stayed at:)
Before I left April had made salsa, I was given hundreds of  fresh garden tomatoes, April had wanted to sell the salsa for a Mission that we support at Journey Church, so we learned how to can!! Not bad for our first time canning!! Money will go to Journey Church for the next mission trip to help the Cabecar Indians:)

 Lugi's Tomato Salad...........soooooooooooooooo gooooooooooooooddddddddddd!
I love to cook but have got to learn to cook for two people, this week I threw out more food that we never ate, makes me feel bad in wasting it! We just are not home much, we eat lunch then eat pop corn or something light for dinner if we even eat.   I put my left overs yesterday in the canning jars so it will keep longer:) BUT I am going to try to cook for two:)  April is here for a few more weeks then she is moving to Iowa to be with Seth and his family, this is against our wishes, but she has plans to go the end of the month. I will miss her terribly but she is 22 and dead set on moving there, with plans to marry. Pray for us all concerning this. Today she bought a beautiful six week old pit bull, in which we can not have Pit Bull's in Sherwood, so it will stay with one of her friends, its just a puppy and really pretty, the last thing I want is another puppy in my home:( but hate it having to stay at her friend's, but our city has a ordinance against Pit Bulls which she was aware of when she bought it:((  The joy's of being a mother and daddy:) Just keep us in your prayers, we need them right now....
I am excited to have a bible study in my home, we will be studying" It's not to late how God uses less then perfect people" by Tony Evans, Pastor John and his wife Kay Sammon's leads it,  so I am getting my home ready for company:)))  We meet every Wed. for six weeks, if your near and want to come you are for sure welcome!  I love this group, it is friends from Church at North Hill's, which the McKimmey's invited me, that is where they go to church, Steve and I have enjoyed it, we did a study on Heaven and then Proverbs now this study.  I have missed church at Journey the last two weeks, so glad to go this Sunday, I have the Journey Kids so I will miss the sermon and will listen to it online again:) But what a blessing with those babies I will have! 
Best go, tomorrow is another home day to do some organizing, then work in the afternoon:)  hugs to all and good night!
