It's a brand new day, a brand new Monday filled with so many possibilities, just waiting for us to embrace life and make the most of this day. I pray you all had a marvelous and fun weekend and can look back and see the Hand print on God on your life.
Our weekend was good~more painting; we have one full side left to do before we start priming the trim although hubby and I primed the front porch this weekend so it can be painted at any time. Saturday we got to see our sil's work and it was fascinating to see the technology. Afterwards we attended his work picnic at a nearby park and that was fun as well. Oh yes, I forgot to tell you about our Pizza's on Friday night....I should have taken a photo of mine. Most of you know that I am not doing any breads, cakes, pies, etc that contain gluten. There is a brand of baked goods, made here in Colorado called UDI'S and it is the best bread I've had. They even have bagels(yummy),muffins and pizza crusts; so that is what my girl and I had our pizzas on. I made a bbq chicken pizza, with fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, artichoke hearts and of course a very light sprinkling of cheddar cheese.
It was so good! Hubby and sil got to have their own combo~something hubby has had a taste for.
Yesterday was a relatively light day for painting and I had church in the evening. Let me tell you it was the best worship we've had in awhile. After I got home I talked to my best friend from high school who attended our (gasp!)40 yr. reunion-where oh where did the time go? So she filled me in on everyone that we knew and remembered.
Today has dawned a bit overcast so I imagine we will be out trying to finish a good portion of the house before the sun beats down on us. I'm awaiting a phone call from my holistic doctor so may have to stop painting to talk to him.
Have a great day, live freely and love generously for life slips away oh so quickly.
Hugs, Noreen
