Well, we had a great weekend and made the most of the relaxing time. The weather improved from the rain storm we had - and we really do need the rain, so I am hoping we get some more. We made a little progress with our Christmas Cards, and who knows, we may be able to actually get them out this year, before Christmas (I was hoping to have it done by today, actually). On Saturday I got in a nice 25-mile ride, and then on Sunday to switched to a faster pace and put in 15 miles, so I'd be back home in time to go to church. Now all I have to do is be able to get in 30 miles at the 15 mile pace, and I'll be ready for the longer rides... ;-)

Also on Sunday we went over to our friend's home, Anthony and Angelica, and enjoyed a nice relaxing time with them. We made it back to the house about 19:00 (7pm) and within a pretty short amount of time had the girls bathed and in bed. All quiet at the house by 20:30 (8:30pm) and shortly thereafter we were ready for bed ourselves. Sofia, from Serving Spoons, had left a very nice dinner for us, and it was waiting, hidden, when we got home. We had actually communicated with Sofia the day before so we kind of knew where to look.

Today began a little on the rough side. Both Stacy and Jackie had gotten us up a couple of times, through the night, and as we result we're both kind of worn down tonight. Perhaps we'll be able to get to bed early and be able to get the full 8-hours in. Anyway, we were up at about the same time as we usually do, and we were able to get the girls to school with a few minutes to spare. Afterward, Linda had a couple of errands to run; Jason had a few errands to run; and, I had a couple of things I wanted to get done. I think the extra errands is a direct result of the holidays that are upon us right now. Linda went one way and I went with Jason, to help him out with some of his Christmas shopping. After we returned to the house I went back out, on my own, to take care of the two little errands I wanted to get done.

Tonight we ate the Serving Spoons dinner, and it was excellent, as always, and the funny thing is, is that she is looking for another family or two, in this area, to help in the same way. I need to connect with another family that would appreciate this gift. I also made some Toll House cookies, with the girls. It is the first time that they have made cookies with me, and both of them had a great time. The cookies came out very nice, only I didn't make my usual double batch. I told Jason I was anxious to get into the new kitchen of his new house, so I could make more and possibly get some other baking and other cooking done. The rest of the evening was getting the girls to bed and Jason's dressing changes in, and then that was it. The really good news is that once again, Jason's wounds are looking pretty good, and we might see some significant improvement before the end of the year.  Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Keep your eyes on the Lord! Praying!
    2 Samuel 22:2-3, 7 And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence. (7) In my distress I called upon the LORD, and cried to my God: and he did hear my voice out of his temple, and my cry did enter into his ears.

  2. Praying right now!
    2 Samuel 22:29-33 For thou art my lamp, O LORD: and the LORD will lighten my darkness. For by thee I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall. As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him. For who is God, save the LORD? and who is a rock, save our God? God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect.

  3. May your roots go down deep into the Lord and His Word. Praying!
    Jeremiah 17:7-8 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
