After a couple of cloudy days, it was nice to see the sun shining this morning … even if it was only 29 outside. <brrrrr> There was no snow on the ground when I got up this morning, but the rain puddles had frozen. Thankfully the sun is shining brightly, so it doesn’t “feel” cold sitting inside (outside is another story – ha!).
I was invited to join a group of women from church for breakfast at Denny’s this morning. I’m not a fan of Denny’s nor of big breakfasts (if I’m going to have a big breakfast, I’d rather have it for dinner ), but it was nice to be able to join them and become a part of their group (they meet for breakfast on the 2nd Monday of every month). I’d been feeling so isolated over the last couple of years, and I can’t begin to tell you how good it feels to be included.
It’s going to be a fairly busy day today. We have small group this evening, and I need to review this week’s lesson.
We’re going to have a water softener installed this morning. We installed a humidifier last winter, and our water is so hard that the humidifier is already clogged up and not working. I suspect that with a little work, we can unclog the tubing, but with the water hardness, it will only be a temporary fix. And that makes us wonder about the rest of our water pipes/tubes. We’ve talked for a few years about installing a water softener, and the clogged humidifier has clinched it for us.
Today is DH’s 62nd birthday … he’s now eligible for Social Security. I guess that makes it official … he’s OLD! ha! Between the water softener installation and small group tonight, we won’t be able to do anything special today … but I think a trip tomorrow to his favorite restaurant on The Hill in St. Louis is in order. ;-) In the meantime, I’m going to fix one of his favorite meals for dinner this evening.
Today I’m thankful for:
- My dear hubby … he’s truly a gift from God
- Our veterans (and those who are currently serving) … and for all they gave so we could enjoy our freedom
- The fellowship of Christian women … and the blessing of being connected
