Mother's Day Week

What a fun and busy weekend it was for us. Saturday afternoon we went to see "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" in Wilsonville. Our drive was longer than expected due to a car accident just south of Boone Bridge. Three lanes down to two lanes to get passed the wreck. Then it was back to speed. We didn't have far to go. Got to theatre in time. Sat for 20 minutes thru movie trailers which most weren't any we would want to watch. There's two movies we'll probably see. This one was good but a bit more violent and graphic wise...not sure I like that.  That's what happens whens there's so much that can be added in computer generated imagery.
   Then we ate at Red Robin afterwards. Waited 15 min in foyer. Talking. Then talking more while waiting for food. Busy evening there with many birthdays celebrated. Mother's day. Prom. Megan gave me a nice basket. I enjoy baskets and keep myself from buying more. A gift? I'll take it!

Mid afternoon on Sunday I decided to head across town and buy a few items on sale at Bimart since it was last day of sale. Phil went with me since I told him I wanted to go to LimeBerry for frozen yogurt. A treat for me. Yummy!! Layered bottom with strawberry chocolate swirl. Then milk chocolate on top. ...and then I added toppings. So delicious!!! Then we came home and went on a much needed walk. Weather was nice but still wore our jackets.

 Mother's Day bulletin at church.

Friday evening Megan and I attended the worship service which included communion. By the time it was over my voice was a bit rough but felt so blessed by God.
   Tonight I found another skirt while picking up a few items at Bimart. A usual stop for me on Tuesday beings it's lucky number day. Nope. I didn't win anything. Megan called and we decided to meet at Panera for dinner. Yummy and had a good visit before heading home. Looked thru closet for tops to go with skirt. Also decided one older skirt could go.  Right into Megan's hand as she's always liked it and has tops to wear with it. Yeah!!
    Weather's back to rain and wind. Chilly to wear a jacket in the evening. Maybe a few warmer days this week. But we're all thinking it won't warm up til July!! That's the common joke that's going around. Glad I didn't plant tomatoes this year.
       I'm on the last bit of my hot tea. Need to get lunch together for early morning shift. Tidy up. Cuddle into cozy bed. Hope you're week is going well and you've found happiness in your life's moments.

"For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you.  You will seek me and find me; when you seek me with all your heart, I will be found by you, says the Lord." Jeremiah 29:11-14

What a fun weekend! I, too, love baskets and have to stop myself from buying them. There are lots of baskets in our garage sale! That frozen yogurt looks yummy! I'm glad you had a great weekend and were able to relax and do some fun things. Great verse, it's one of my favorites.

So glad you had a happy celebration. We did, too. Yesterday I planted some Hostas I was given and another spikey purple flowered plant, then I got a Sun Gold tomato plant and Basil plant at the feed store and planted them as well. I was thinking I want to see that movie. too, but will probably wait and see it on a smaller screen someday. But as the verse you quoted says, the Lord knows the plans He has for me. :) xx
