June 27, 2015

Got up this morning and decided that it was a better idea for me to head over to the gym, instead of trying to get out on my bike. I got a good work out in, and the girls were still sleeping when I left, so I felt like it was the right decision. When I got back, about and hour later, the girls were now up and in with their daddy, having a great time. I asked them what they wanted to for breakfast and we all decided it was going to be French Toast. Well, it was more of a directional kind of deciding, as I had already bought the bread (Texas Toast) and I kind of encouraged them to go that direction. Anyway, that's what I ended up cooking.

After breakfast I had promised to take the girls out on their bikes, so we went on over to the local school and the girls managed to get a ride in, around the parking lot. Jason called me after a single loop and asked us to come back home. Kojak had gotten himself tangled up in some wires/cables under his bed and he couldn't get Kojak out. Funny thing is, that as we were on our way back to the house it started to sprinkle a little, and so after getting Kojak untangled we decided to stay home for a little bit, and instead head over to the library. The girls wanted to get some new books and Jackie was now old enough to get her own library card.  We remained at the library for a little over an hour and then headed back home with new books and a new card for Jackie. She was very happy and proud of her new card and told Stacy that she didn't have to get her books anymore.

We decided, at that point to eat a quick lunch, as the girls said they still weren't very hungry, though they both ate a full sandwich, and all the rest of their lunches. Then it was time to get back over to the school, to ride their bikes. As we were leaving, Gary K. was showing up, and wanted to go visit Jason. I thought this was great, as I didn't have to worry about anything going wrong while we were away. As we returned (again, we were gone for about an hour) Gary was getting ready to say his good byes, and so the timing was good. I spoke with Gary about the Buy-A-Brick for Jason's house and he said he would be happy to help, and asked if it was on the blog or somewhere else. This gave me the idea of seeing if I could get it on the blog. In my search I have come to the conclusion that it doesn't go well on the blog, though I did get it on my Facebook page. So... for all those who know me via FB, you can pull down a copy from there, for right now. Just go to my page and either see it, or do a search for Build-A-Brick and you should be able to find it.

Dinner was simple tonight, as I fixed chicken pot pies, and then it was time to hit the sack, for the girls. I also needed to get some laundry done, so that happened, and then I was given a bit of a nice surprise - - - Stacy read the story tonight, before going to sleep. I helped her a little, but she managed to get all the way through the story, and it was really kind of fun. She is really starting to grow up and we're enjoying it. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.

  1. Such a blessing to be able to pray for you!
    Philippians 4:8-9 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.
