Lilac Bush

Our lilac bush has lots of buds on it. YEAH!  If all goes well, it will have lots of beautiful, sweet smelling flowers soon.  We have a small bush we just planted a few years ago at the edge of the garden and it is full of buds too.  I love spring.   I think our rain has stopped for a few days.  It is still very cloudy but the forecast is for the sun to come peeping through this afternoon.  It is already warmer than it was all day yesterday so that is a good sign.   We are hoping to do some more outside work after school.  We have been trying to start school a little earlier so that we can be finished around lunch.  Then we have the afternoon for work and play.  It seems to be working out well so far.

Yesterday, while the girls were at their piano lessons, I went into our local thrift store-Angels in the Attic.  It operates entirely on donations and volunteers.  All the profit each month is given to help local needs.  It is amazing.  They have moved 3 times because they keep growing.  The last time they moved, they purchased the building and in about 2 years had it paid off.   Since all workers are volunteer they have very little expense.  It has really helped our community.  The lady who thought it up is a Christian and tells everyone she can “It is all God”.  Anyway I said all that to say this.  Many years ago, my sister-in-law gave Hubby a coffee cup.  He loves this cup and uses it every morning.  Well, guess what I found.  One that looks just like it at Angels for 25 cents.  How exciting!  This morning I put my coffee in the new cup so that our cups matched.  Cute!  Ialso found this pretty glass.  I love old dishes and this glass just so wanted to come home with me. 

I better get busy.  It’s almost time for school.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Cold Temperatures

Well, I have no picture for today.  The time now is 4:30 and the temperature is 35 with rain.  I laughingly told the girls we might get snow but now I’m thinking it might really be a possibility.  We really haven’t gotten much snow here in the last 6 years just lots of cold and ice.  I’d much rather have snow.  School has went very well this week so far.  3 chapter tests.  They made good grades on  them  which makes me think they are learning.  Tonight is Team Kids at church and handbell practice for them.  They really enjoy both.  I don’t know if any of you all are familar with Team Kids but it really is a good program.  It’s a lot like Awana but does not require as many adult workers so it works well for smaller churches. ( or larger churches with few volunteers!)  Every week they meet, have a bible study, game time, snack time, and learn a memory verse.  I think it is so important for children to memorize verses.    Store His Word in their heart.  Important stuff.

Well I quess I need to get moving if we are going to church.  We have a fellowship meal at 5:30 and you know I don’t want to miss that.   I suppose everyone who reads my blog think all we do at church is eat but we really do study and worship God.  The food is just extra.  God Bless
