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.
