What a beautiful morning in and around the Houston area. It is quite nice out here on the prairie. Buddy and I are enjoying a new view. Roy built a raised garden this weekend outside the windows of our front room. He moved the bird feeders and assembled my birthday bird bath. On Saturday we bought three knockout rose bushes and will decide later what else needs to be planted. It has taken a while but the birds have finally figured out that the feeder has moved three feet.
Yesterday we celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary. Actually, we went out on Saturday to celebrate to one of our very favorite restaurants. We had a great time but it wasn't too soon after we had left the place, I began to feel lightheaded and ill. Because we are mad party people we stopped at Barnes and Noble and did a quick look see and by the time we stopped at Lowe's I was feeling horrible. It wasn't food poisoning but more like I had eaten something I am allergic to. I went to sit in the car while Roy paid for everything and we headed back home. My eyes were really hurting, had a headache, zapped of all energy...it really felt more like the flu but I had a rash on my arms and neck which usually signifies allergic reaction. I woke up Sunday morning still feeling bad. So we stayed home from church and I had hoped to feel better to at least go to Christmas choir practice, but I still didn't feel good.
The raised garden was Roy's anniversary gift to me. I love it! I spend a lot of time reading and writing in the room formally known as the dining room but that has been converted to my Nancy Nook. Roy is the best! Not because he gives good gifts but because of his heart and spirit. I am more in love with him today than the day we married.
I've just about finished up my homework. There are a couple of questions I've struggled with, so out comes the ? mark. I will find out the answer tomorrow. I am also giving the devo tomorrow, not because I can't wait to give one, more like September 11 and I never tire of telling our story to glorify God. It fits right in with the theme of this year, giving a cup of cold water in His Name. Only my story uses the term fry up some fish. Same principle, different phrases. After our leadership meeting tomorrow several of us are going to lunch.
Our visit to Barnes and Noble prompted me that several books I have been waiting to be released have been, so I need to download them on my Nook, while sitting in my nook.
