Monday Miscellany

I'm feeling like I should have stayed in bed this morning!  On top of it being Monday and my having to work, it's a rainy, dreary day and I woke up with a headache (that's only gotten worse as the day has gone on).  The upside is that today was cake day at work ... one day each month, we bring in cakes to celebrate all the birthdays for that month.  My birthday is in February, so we had cake today.  And since I was the lone February birthday, I got to choose what cakes we had.  I chose a couple that I really liked and a couple that I knew would be favorites of everyone else.  They were yummy!  And I snagged a piece of each of my 2 favorites to take home.  ;-)


We had a very good weekend.  We had all 4 Ts on Saturday and the 2 littles Ts yesterday.  I can't think of a better way to spend the weekend, and it was good for my Nana's heart after having to turn down DD's request to watch them on Friday. 

On top of that, DD had good news that they are under contract on their house.  They had it on the market this past summer, but after some initial activity, there was no interest, so they took it off the market.  Friday, their realtor called and said that she had someone who was looking for a house like theirs (they're out on 2 acres in the country, so it's not your typical property).  Turns out the buyers made an offer, DD & DSIL made a counter offer which was accepted.  Once again God has reminded us that His timing is not the same as our timing!  ;-)  Now their fun begins as they try to find a house in town, in a nice neighborhood, with enough bedrooms for 6, bonus areas that can be used as a homeschooling room and play room ... in their budget.  It may not be an easy search, but we're praying that God will lead them to the perfect home ... we are confident that He'll be faithful in bringing them through this.  I'm also praying that He will give DD an extra measure of peace through this whole process; unfortunately, she takes after her mama and has a tendency to fret and worry over details.

So sorry about your headache and yucky day. I pray you have a relaxed and wonderful evening.

I also have a February birthday. Mine is the 1st.

Great news about your daughter's house. It is a buyer's market so she should do well.

Hi there, Lifting you up for physical strength and relief from that headache. The sun finally came out and I'm going to sit near the slider and quilt-lots of good light. I'm so glad to hear about DD's house-what a miracle! Only God! We had our Ca. house on the market last fall but didn't have one interested party-so we'll wait two years which makes the tenants happy.
Glad you got cake you like.
Hugs today, Noreen

There is nothing in the world like God's timing!

Hope your headache is gone! There is nothing like moving to remind us of God's amazing timing in the circumstances of our lives.

So glad you got cake!

Ugh, a headache, hope it's gone by now.

The cake is so cute! Happy belated birthday!

And, so happy for DD. Our daughter and SIL have had a house in Ok. for sale over a year. It's such a tough market.

Happy week!

Quite a few people had headaches the past couple of days. Very fortunate that they found a buyer for their house, especially in this economy.

You made me smile with your thought of "God's timing is not our timing" - so very true!

So sorry about your headache and sincerely hope the cake helped! I say that because sometimes when I get a big headache like that sugar seems to help more than anything. Or maybe it's just so tasty that I feel better.... :)

What a beautiful cake! Hope it helped your headache go away! Happy Birthday!

And congratulations on your DD's house sale. There are two houses in our subdivision that have been on sale for over a year. One starts to wonder if anything is selling!

You know I think Cake cures a lot of aches and pains. And you got a beautiful cake! I'm so glad that the house sold and I know that God will make her dream house available. He was just waiting for it to be ready for her. Have a good week.
