It has been a lazy Saturday for me. On Thurs afternoon, I had a broken tooth extracted. Friday I sat around and didn't do much. This a.m. after watching the Pioneer Woman cooking show, I went outdoors to mail a birthday card. Then I proceeded to chop some blackberry vines back that were encroaching on walking space on our sidewalk. Bending over to pick them up was the point where my body had a little yucky feeling....oops, I shouldn't have done that. But I paused and breathed. I got the few arms of vine into the yard debris bin. I came indoors. Warm out. Later after lunch I took some allergy med and it helped me feel somewhat better. After a rest, I decided to go through my photo files. Always a chore but fun to look at the photos of our trip to the coast in April. A whole lot of rotating and deleting going on to make my files more compact.
My lilacs near the end of the season, on a late April morning. The day after we got back from the coast. I'd seen water drops glistening from the living room window. I grabbed my camera and went out and took a few photos.
Strawberry season is here but not for long. I really wanted more but didn't even feel like going out to get them with Megan. She said she'd take me. Nope. Go for me, take my card. So she did! We'll have some later. Phil came home from work and brought me soup from the restaurant where he bought lunch. He knows I like squash so he got ginger butternut squash soup!! I peeked when I went to the fridge to put away the freshly made iced tea. Oh yummy! Can't wait to eat it with the sourdough roll that came with the soup!! Ginger is supposed to be good for the stomach and I know it will feel good going down. I can eat ok, just have to be careful on my right side....stay away from the toothless hole!! I am feeling better now. I am thankful for the beauty around me. Thankful for a caring daughter and husband. Thankful for God who cares and people who prayed for me. I was a bit apprehensive about getting my tooth pulled but it went well. Didn't feel a thing...dentist is a pro at it. Not had a tooth pulled since my wisdom teeth were out. I had that done when I was in the USAF. Not a fun time, I remember! This was better by far!
After my little rest, I read from Romans, which we are reading for 52 weeks of the New Testament Bible study. A couple verses I like:
"The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together." Romans 8:16-17 NKJV
Have a blessed weekend, my friends and enjoy some lovely springtime weather. Praying for the people in Oklahoma and Texas that are having storms and severe flooding.
