Saturday, May 2, 2015 – We had a wonderful visit with my sister Harriett and brother in law George. We haven’t visited like this for a few weeks and it was nice to do it one last time before we leave town. We even walked up and down our road searching for blackberries. We got a lot!
I’ve been making smoothies every day with fresh blackberries, yogurt, assorted other fruits and kale. My friend Susan told me about Kale being so nutritionally great. It tastes bitter if eaten raw but in a smoothie you don’t taste any bitterness and you get all that nutritional value added to the rest of the smoothie. I’m trying hard to plump up my brain and hopefully this will add to my other efforts! Try out the kale in your smoothie, it’s great!
I did more of my RVillage work Saturday before and after our visit with my sister. I only work weekends so my whole week is free. I kinda like that!
Sunday, May 3, 2015 – Drove to Hammond to go to church with Chip at Soul’s Harbor Church. A very interesting preacher, Jonathan Suber, preached today. He had a lot of good things to say in his message. One was that we tend to live for the next big thing in our life. He encouraged us to see the wonderful things that are going on in our life now and thank God for those things. I may not have said it as well as he did but it really made me stop and think about it.
We saw Kim and the little boys and that was such a treat. Bentley grabbed Roy’s hand and pointed out the window to our truck and said Paw Paw’s truck. His smile and love is so precious! Braxton kind of says hey and then goes on his way! They are so different.
We then headed to pick Madisyn up in Loranger. Their church, River Rock, was doing community service at a near by trailer park having a worship service there and a cookout for the trailer park residents. We got to enjoy some of their delicious cooking and the most amazing large M&M oatmeal cookies. We came home after that and we all took a two hour nap! Madisyn was exhausted from a very busy weekend so we took the opportunity of her napping for us to sneak in a nap also!
Trinity’s family picnic was at Camp Living Waters this year. They have a large in ground pool and a major big super slide. Madisyn had a blast going down the super slide 12 times and spending some time swimming in the pool.
We got to have some nice visiting with several church friend and enjoyed hamburgers, French fries, baked beans and dessert. Madisyn’s mom Liz came to pick her up and we headed home.
Today Monday is a nice quiet, go no where day! After a very busy last few days this is very welcome! Our schedule for Tuesday is very busy so we’re really enjoying this peaceful day quite a bit!
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
