It is cold here this morning - but sounds like this will be HOT comparing it to the forecast over the next 5 days ... ICE, FREEZING RAIN, SLEET, SNOW ... temps barely to freezing, and down to 10 ... wind chills around 0 ... Yes, welcome to winter in East Texas!
God was good to us this week - Rick's dad and mom felt led to buy us a cord of wood, said it is a combined Rick's birthday gift, and our Christmas. :-) That's good to us!!! The ice may come, the electricity may go ... but the fires will burn on!!! :-) Thank you God for providing our needs. Help us to be thankful with each stick of wood that we get to add to the fires over the next several days.
We were blessed this past Sunday night to get to see "Frozen". OMW! It has been a long time since I laughed so hard. I love the snowman! He is the STAR of the show!!! We were impressed with the presentation of the movie, the special effects, and especially the message of the movie - LOVE can melt a frozen heart. So true.
How much better our world would be if we would LOVE one another instead of being angry, instead of holding grudges, instead of walking in our assumptions.
God has loved us first - we ought to love one another.
I went to the doctor this past Monday. I have a severe & acute sinus infection. (I don't think it is very "cute" - but whatever!) There is a "good amount" of fluid in my right ear. (again, not thinking it is "good" - but ok.)
I have a cough that is irritating and frustrating. But the lungs don't sound congested - which is good.
Got my orders for blood work - went yesterday morning for that draw. 4 vials - ouch! I will return to the doctor next Thursday for the readings, and to see if he is going to change my medications at all.
While Rick has been doing physical therapy, I have been walking on the treadmill. Yesterday I walked for 30 minutes @ 1.7 mph - and my heart rate was up to 120! I wasn't breathing hard, nor was it hard to talk. I was proud of myself! :-) ... Dr said he was proud of me, too :-).
Rick and i brought in 4 loads of wood yesterday afternoon (red wagon loads). The laundry is done - just need to put it all away this morning. There is a refrigerator of food leftovers and sandwich stuff.
We are going to hunker down and watch the weather out the window. :-) We ain't skeered! LOL ... but we are PRAYING for all those that must be out in it. Beginning with our son and daughter!
Today is my youngest granddaughter's birthday. Kyla Rose McCoy. She is my punkin tater. She makes me laugh. She hugs me and decorates me. It has been said since she was born that Grannee is her favorite toy. :-) And that is just fine with me. I love Kyla!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEETHEART!!! GRANNEE LOVES YOU SO MUCH!!!
Rick bought me a Christmas tree yesterday. Just a small one. Says it is a "living tree". I set it on the bookshelf yesterday afternoon, and decorated it and around it. Not big - but pretty.
Still looking for a topper for it - Rick said that we would check at the Dollar Store. Wal-mart's didn't have anything that wouldn't have overwhelmed the little tree.
Well ... guess it's time for COFFEE ... and to see what else I can do ... Love you all!!! Thank you for reading!!!
So why "Scattered Feathers" ? ? ?
