If it's Thursday, it must be Bible study day in Katy. I've kind of made it a habit of going late just to be able to make it in time for core group discussion. The leadership standing in the lobby must wonder, she is always late and today she didn't even stay for lecture time. What is up? Well, I had lunch plans. I absolutely love the discussion time and this is surprising because discussion time is usually something I really don't enjoy. Our group has a great and fun leader and our group has really gelled. Even though Peggy wasn't there today, we still went down rabbit trails.
So I went to the Orient Cafe across the street to load up on some Chinese soup goodness, Wor Won ton Soup. I got three orders, two for lunch and one for Roy to have for dinner tonight. We are talking huge portions but being well trained by Erin D, I only ate half of my soup. I took this deliciousness over to have lunch with Dena and we ate in her office, at her table, and underneath a horse. Her office is right under the Mustang horse on her building. Wish I could have taken a picture of it or something. Dena has heard me rave about this soup and it was just about dang time she tried it. You know we did it up quite nice for a girl from Baytown and a girl born in Illinois. Dena brought bright red bowls from home and Mustang furnished some fancy goblets for our Coke and Diet Coke. Dessert, fresh raspberries. I don't think the soup disappointed...it was good! It is kind of a soup day here in Houston, sunny, very windy and cooler temps than normal.
Yesterday I had lunch with Erin Hollister at The Nord. We had a wonderful time and realized it had been a year since we had last dined together. The evening we ran into she and her husband at Sweet Tomatoes doesn't count even though our booths were back to back.
I am an EBay virgin no longer. I don't count the times that Jason had me watching an item and bidding on it while he was in meetings or something. Erin D had mentioned a bracelet that Brighton makes. It is an ID type and it says Celebrate Small Victories. Of course it is no where to be found or so I thought. I had searched for it online but to no avail. I was telling Debbie about it during our Monday work out and at the end, like she always does, she prayed. This time though, she specifically mentioned the bracelet and would the Lord provide one. Monday night I was searching again and one came up on EBay. Heck, I just bought the thing without all that bidding junk. So it is supposed to be on the way. I want the bracelet to remind me that when I make a good choice, like no emotional eating, I can celebrate that small victory. I did celebrate yesterday because I have lost 106 pounds. Only 34 more to go. I am celebrating the huge victory of God being so gracious as to answering that very small prayer. Praise Him!
So tonight I will have what is left of my Wor Won ton soup and my left over steak from the Nord. Sounds like some good eating to me.
