One of those weeks...

Yea, I know I haven't posted any more photo's from the trip. Call me lazy, and you'd be right. I just haven't had it in me to do anything extra this week. I needed to clean my house, but haven't done much of that. I have laundry piled up and have only done a load a day, just enough to get by.

Today I took Peggy to lunch and had an enjoyable visit with my dear friend/sister. Then I went to Mid Town Antique Mall and looked around. Just a treat to myself. There were several things I would have liked, were I buying. But needless to say, I don't need more junk.

I need to have a yard sale now and get rid of a whole boat load of things. And in this house, we don't have the space for anything more. I would love to change the decor, but not until we move, again.

But of course after visiting Seattle, I don't want to live here anymore...not that I have ever been keen on living here, I am just here by way of... Well I know that God brought us here for a reason...but I don't know now that it is where we need to stay. He brought us through some hard things over the past...Almost 4 years....And I am not the same person I was then, due to the trials and dry places that occured here.

Now I feel ready to move on to the next adventure. So I am here, but my heart isn't. Before I wasn't sure where it was I would like to go next. Up until after we moved here, we just went wherever the job took us; of course we all know that God was in charge of that; but when we decided to stay here, because of various things, we started making decisions ourselves, with God's help. So now I feel like if I pray and let God lead, then the field is wide open. God could take us anywhere.

Looking back over our lives, God has granted me several "wishes". I always wanted to live in the mountains; God took us to Kentucky. I always wanted to live near the ocean; God took us to Corpus Christi and we lived on Padre Island. I got to go to the beach every morning and walk on the sand and hear the ocean. I use to think when coming to Arkansas visiting relatives at Thanksgiving each year that I would like to try living in Little Rock, and what do you know, here we are, by God's hand.

So I know that if I pray, and seek His will and live for Him, He will answer some of my desires, as long as it doesn't go against His ultimate will for my life. So I am praying...

Anyway, that wasn't what I started out to write, but it just came about.

I am thinking of taking a Pilates class. I have been intriqued by Pilates since I read about them several years ago. I am a bit of a chicken when it comes to things like that, I am not much of a "join-er". But I am thinking of trying it. I am also thinking of taking a knitting class. Yes, I know the basics stitches but I can't decifer a pattern. I don't know how to do anything but a scarf or a basic throw. I want to learn to knit socks and sweaters and such. So, I may try my hand at a class...But I won't be doing anything for a couple of weeks. I have to work again next week...all week long...starting this Saturday. UGGHHH!!!! And then the following week we are taking a trip to Florida for a few days. I just hope that there won't be a hurricane or tropical depression in the gulf. I don't think I can get my deposit on the condo back!!

After that, then it is back to school and riding lessons for Megan. And maybe some classes for me too!
Here is another shot from downtown Seattle. I wish it were a better photo, but I took it from the inside of the vehicle. I just caught barely caught it in time to snap the shot.

Monday again!

Well, here it is Monday again! Seems like this summer has flown by. I couldn't believe when I looked at the calendar and it is only eight (8), count them, EIGHT weeks until Daphne's wedding!!! Only eight weeks left! Oh wow! Where has the time gone. I remember when I first posted about her wedding...

That was last November, and now here it is only 8 weeks left!!!

I do have more photo's from Seattle to post, but I am to lazy today to download and post them. Maybe tomorrow.

Not much going on here. I have housework that is waiting so I will end the post here. Maybe I will leave one photo from the trip.
This was taken at The Center for Wooden Boats It is a neat place to visit.

Some photo's from the plane

Phoenix in the rain...

I am sitting in the hotel room in Phoenix and it is storming outside. The hotel next to us is out of electricity because a transformer blew just up the street. Thank God we still have electricity here.
We went to the Saints game...yippee! I am not interested in the least in football, but hubby is a fanatic, so we compromise. I spent the entire game taking photo's for hubby and texting with my kids back home. Megan was sick, started running a temp today. I think it is just her allergies, but if she isn't better tomorrow, Lauren will have to take her to the doc. Just the kind of thing that keeps a mom worrying when she is away from her kids. Other than that, all is well on the homefront. Noah is doing well. I spoke to him on the phone tonight and he told me he was staying with "Larnon (what he calls Lauren), MeMe (his name for Megan), grandma, and pawpaw." He said that he had put a puzzle together by himself and that he was having a good time. So I feel like he will do fine. Just pray that Megan gets well soon!
Anyway, back to the game... Attached are a couple of photo's I took. I couldn't take my zoom lens in, so I just have panoramic shots.
Tomorrow we leave for Seattle! Yea! Now the fun begins for me!
Views of the hotel room: comfy bed!
Great Kitchen--love the decor!
Where we ate before the game
It is like a 50's style diner
Had a good homestyle burger and fries.

Early morning trips

Today this post comes to you from Phoenix, Arizona. I am sitting in a hotel room in Phoenix trying to recover from an early morning flight. We flew to Dallas and then flew from there to Phoenix. I have been up since 3:30 this morning and I didn't get to bed until 11:00. So I plan to take a nap as soon as I am done here.

Andrew and I celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary this month and while my parents were visiting we decided to take our anniversary trip. We are flying from Phoenix to Seattle tomorrow.

I am having some jet lag and just basic lack of sleep issues, so I will end this post now. I will post more later with photo's.
