Good morning! It's very bright and sunny right now and a bit windy. I think that's going to change though, as we are supposed to get rain that may turn to snow tonight, with about an inch of snow expected. We may not get anything. I'll wait and see!
This week has been busy. You might wonder why since it doesn't seem that I have gotten very much accomplished. I am still taking the cake decorating classes. There is an art class that's coming up and I'd love to take that...but I wonder if I should? I also teach our Sunday School class, so there is another obligation (but I do enjoy it very much!!). Taking care of my husband is a full time thing, so I don't want to get too swamped or take on more than I can handle! The art class is in watercolor. I would prefer oils but then anything is a start. No, I can't draw or paint...but I've always thought it would be fun! I'll have to study on that one and then decide whether to do it or not.
When I started teaching Sunday School I was very nervous and I still feel like I am totally inadequate. I am the youngest in my class so it is like the blind teaching the ones who have 20/20 vision. They all know far more about the Bible than I do. However, the best part is that when you teach you have to study harder and I really like that part of it. I get so much more out of the lesson myself by teaching than I do by just being in the class. That is a huge blessing for me!
A friend from church had her parents die this week and they died within hours of each other. They have both been very sick for some time and so it was expected. She died one evening and then he died in the wee hours of the morning. I think that is rare for people to die so close to each other, unless they are in an accident or something. They had their funerals together yesterday.
Last Friday morning Skittles got hit by a car. At least there was lots of hair out by the road and he wouldn't come out of his bed. I pulled him out and he was growling and then limping badly in both back legs. I took him to the vet. Nothing was broken and I'm so happy about that. He had a scrape on his back leg. She gave him a pain shot and gave me some pain medicine to give to him at home for the next couple of days. The best we could figure out is that he was just barely nudged by a car, in which case he must have used one of his nine lives!! The vet also told me that he was a male that had been neutered. (Yes, I know Cliff and Ralph that you all do NOT like that word. Sorry.) Some of you may recall, but Skittles is a stray that wandered in here and I have no idea where he came from. He is a beautiful cat, but to be neutered he was someone's pet at some time. He is getting around fine now but still seems to favor his hips some. I say he is very lucky and hopefully he'll stay away from the road now.
I went to the doctor this week. Just for a routine visit so he could legally continue to prescribe my medication! I hadn't been there in a good while. I do take medication and inhaler for asthma. He looked in my ears and decided my ears needed cleaning out. I wasn't having any hearing problems. The junk she got out of my right ear! EEEWWWWWW!! It was pretty gross. Then she dug in there and pulled out some stuff that looked like wet skin and she said that was what it looked like too...dried wet skin. Okay. This might be more than you all wanted to know!
My cholesterol came back high at 241. I need to start eating more oatmeal and more rabbit food I guess. I need to lay off the sweet stuff. I don't have a sweet tooth. I have sweet teeth! I'm trying to do better. No shrimp for me!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend, a wonderful week, and a wonderful year!
