Happy Friday friends! It is so pretty here today and reminds me of spring. We are supposed to get up in the 50's today, which really reminds me of spring. I know that it is too early to be thinking of this, but a girl can dream can't she?! Yesterday our new study started and it felt so good to be back with the group of ladies, earnestly seeking more life in Christ. This study is one written by Priscilla Shirer and next to Beth Moore, I'd have to say one of my favorite teachers. The introduction was so rich and deep; I can't wait to see what's in store for each of us in this study. Afterwards, a friend and I went out to lunch at our favorite place-Mad Greens. Don't know whether this chain is only here in Colorado but let me tell you that it is a healthy choice when you are out and wanting something quick and inexpensive. Although they have soups and sandwiches, I go strictly for the salads. There are so many choices and you can add protein to it as well. A small salad is only about $5.+/-. I had the Molly Brown and it consisted of fresh Spinach, tomatoes, onions, Parmesan cheese and I added in chicken. I love being able to watch them make it in front of you. We had a great time catching up and then both had other errands to run.
Today I will be making a new type of gluten free lemon cookies; I hope they are as good as I've been told. This afternoon hubby and I will head to daughter Carrie's house to hang out with the kiddos while Carrie and her hubby go have an ultrasound; I was hoping they'd find out what they are having but they want #6 to be a surprise. This evening Kim's four girls will be here for a sleepover; it is their 10th anniversary, where do the years go? Hunter will have such a fun day-he loves going to Carrie's house to play with Lily and then when the other four girls are here, I'm sure he'll play with them. Somewhere in here, I've got to do some training for tomorrow. We have a class at noon and then pick up Lily, her family is going Cross Country Skiing.
Should be a great weekend, all in all. We do hope to watch the games but we'll see how crazy the house is.
I will take some photos of the cookies, if they turn out and of course try to get pics of Hunter and Lily playing and maybe even of the grands.
I hope you have a blessed day and see His hand in your life.
Hugs, Noreen & Hunter
