Buzzards, Brunch and Darling

Our neighborhood has two resident buzzards that spend quite a bit of searching time over the green space.  They sit high up on the electrical towers seeking something to devour.  I get a little nervous when I'm walking on the green space and they are perched on their observation post.  Never want to give them the impression that knee weakness might make me easy prey.  When the buzzards are around I am on point to protect our doves.  Our fence at times looks like a shooting gallery because of the doves lined up on it.  I have no clue if buzzards are like hawks that snatch their snare off the ground and carry them away.  I must get on Google later for research. 

I love my core group in Bible study!  These are awesome women who study and do their homework but I so appreciate their desire to talk their questions through and to know the Lord more.  Each one is so helpful and caring.  Yesterday was our brunch day and in addition to their desire to learn, is their great ability to cook.  We had thematic brunch yesterday of baked potatoes, along with deviled eggs, salad and several choice desserts.   Loved how brunch day fell on Genesis 18 day, when Abraham served the three visitors a delicious feast.  Took the role of a servant with them and then walked with God as He told Abraham what He was about to check out and do.  Abraham served and God treated Abraham like a close friend.  We have discussed this week Abraham sitting at the entrance of his tent in the heat of the day.  The main consensus was he was looking for God, I think he was at the entrance of the tent in the heat of the day because....he was living with a post menopausal woman...who is having heat flashes in the hottest part of the day and her emotions are all over the place.  Probably the entrance of the tent back then is what is now called a man cave. 

After Bible study, I ran a few errands and came home.  I was busy with a project and boom a wave of wooziness hit me like a load of frozen turkeys.  I felt as if I had been drugged and now I wonder if a juice drink I had at Whole Foods has papaya in it because my reaction was very papaya effect like.  I went to bed and took a nap and didn't awake refreshed but still groggy and woozy.  I had planned on going to Girl's Night Out in downtown Katy last night but I had to punt that big time.  I pretty much camped out on the couch for the rest of the evening, took a shower at 9:00 and went to bed. 

When we were in Blowing Rock in September, at one of the little shops I picked up a magazine; Darling.  No, I am not calling you darling, that is the name of the magazine.  Now one would suppose this is a southern magazine with a whole lot of Christian emphasis.  No, it isn't.  The uniqueness of the magazine is the recognition of "one size fits all" mentality is a false mentality.  Therefore, the articles are geared to about seven different types of personalities, not just seven different types of women's personalities.  I have enjoyed going through the articles and I'm thinking of ordering the next one that will be published in December. 

Now, I'm going out to seize the beauty of the day.

Don't worry about the buzzards. They only like dead things. ;)
