Monday Morning Musings

Greetings to you this new Monday morning. I hope you had a fine weekend; we had a very typical one but it was nice.  Our friends came for dinner Friday night, bringing me a dozen roses and candy(what a treat)! We fixed bbq'd Salmon and veges done on the grill, as well as a potato dish and a berry crisp with Vanilla Bean ice cream; boy was it good.  Sorry there wasn't time for photo-we wanted it served hot; unfortunately the potatoes weren't as hot as I'd like them.  Yesterday at church there was a guest speaker and it was an incredible man who was a Super Bowl XXVI  Redskins winner, Fred Stokes.  I wasn't into Football too much until we moved here but this man made me wish I was.  What a great testimony he has and an amazing ministry.  He shared tales of his family and his life, specifically about a tornado that destroyed his home in Georgia; this especially ministered to one family in attendance because they were in their home when the 2008 tornado came through our little town.  They weren't seriously injured but they lost their house; I'm sure it was comforting to hear someone else share a similar story.
Well, I'm off to the gym; almost didn't go because Reggie had a restless night and we were up and down several times.
May your day be filled with joy.


  1. Sounds like you had a nice weekend.

    Praying that Reggie will have a great day (and night ... so you all can get some rest).

  2. Sounds like a perfect weekend Noreen! I will be keeping Reggie in my prayers!
    XO Kris

  3. It is wonderful that the guest speaker connected with someone so specifically. Sounds like you had a nice weekend and I hope your upcoming week is wonderful! xo Diana

  4. Good morning Noreen...Sounds like a good week-end. Your dinner sounds yummy, but I am especially interested in your crisp. Was it gluten free? Still doing that over here though I am not sure why. Still not doing well. Going back to the docs tomorrow and having an upper GI done on Friday...sigh...not looking forward to that. Enjoy your day!

  5. What a lovely week end! I love to grill out and we are having summer like weather around here so I'm thinking it's time to break out the grill.

    I pray ALL of you are able to get some rest today.

    Take care

  6. Awesome weekend!!
    so was mine..
    thanks for stopping by.. I agree with you regarding Tebow..
    I love the Manning dynasty having grown up with Archie and Joe Namath battling it out both at college and finally in the NFL...
    and i loved Peyton with the Colts..
    right now as I prepare for my move back to Florida..
    I remain torn for them both..have NEVER ever been a fan of Elway..ok 'nuff said..
    Tebow is blessed .. God knows what is best for him and his life..His path is already charted!

  7. Sounds like you had a full perfect weekend sweetie. Prayin' that Mr. Reggie has a great night so you do too.

    God bless and have a fantastic week! :o)
