.... yeah... I'm not sure I believe it.
It was still cold in our parts & I dont think the sun exists anymore either.
SO MUCH RAIN... & it was so cold that it was even sleeting for the longest time on Saturday.
I'M SO OVER IT!!!!!!! I NEED SPRING!!!!!!
OK - enough of my little fit.
I think we're at least going to be in the 50's this week....still more rain... but I'll take anything over 30 degrees.
& I guess I should never complain about a weekend. Right? Weekends are glorious no matter what the weather. I'll stop my whining now.
Friday started off with my usual Click List & Mobile Starbucks order. My exciting Friday.
Except this Friday, we did have some excitement. A visitor. We have one of my brother's dogs for the week while they are Spring Breaking... & I'm a little jealous that people get Spring Break. I never realized how good I had it during those school years.
I wasn't sure how Charlie was going to do with Ernie - or more so, how Ernie was going to do with Charlie. It's been going OK. Of course, we have to watch it because when any jealousy can happen - like sitting on the floor & loving one of the dogs, it can send everyone in a frenzy - so we're just playing NO FAVORITES this week... & hoping all the peace is kept that way.
Saturday, we woke up to our wireless repairman knocking on the door... Yep - we over slept. Or more so, Ricky went back to bed & I woke up when the knocking happened at 8am. Who ever expects a repairman to be on time that early? ... needless to say, he was our hero because he got all of our wireless running again smoothly (knocking on some major wood right now)
We had to run down to the bank to talk to our awesome banker & it was just so yucky out. The coldest rain. UGHHHH - so we stopped afterwards to pick up some warm drinks & picked up a pizza so we didnt have to go back out for the rest of the day.
The weather was so un-motivating for anything. I needed to work out. I needed to clean. I needed to do laundry. I just basically stayed out in my spot & watched some Directv Now. I figured it was doing a service to our household by me trying out our new wireless to the fullest extent. That's the excuse I'm using for my laziness.
We ended our night by having a movie night tucked in at home. I can't believe we hadn't seen Justice League yet but we both really liked it. I mean, super hero movies have a bit of a corny side to them, but I am all about Superman... & we loved The Flash in it. I actually really liked all the characters.
Sunday, I got to teach another week of bible study to some youth kiddos again. The MOST PRECIOUS thing ever though - one of the girls that came to the class last week, she asked if she could show me something. Of course. She pulled out all these cards that she bible journaled through the week. SO STINKIN' CUTE!!! & she told me that she told her mom all about it & they went to the Dollar Store together to get stickers & some stencils & some markers & she said that they did it every day together. OK - EVEN MORE ON THE CUTENESS!!!!! & she said that she looked so forward every night doing this with her mom. I think I may have teared up at this.
My prayer in teaching this was honestly just to reach one kid ... to let one person maybe connect with God in a new way of spending time in God's word. That this sweet girl shared this with me made my entire day.
I ended up having another great time though going through what Bible Journaling is & why you should do it.... though I will say, the 2nd service, I had more boys than girls & knew this would be a tough group to sell it too... guys can totally do it, but I dont think its cool to play with markers & stickers & washi tape. Even if they wanted to, I dont think they would. But you never know. Maybe someone takes what they heard & do something with it one day.
I left from church & headed over for some Joyster time. Our talk this week was on the Storms in our lives & how Jesus gets us to the other side of the storm. It's funny how, as women, we do all we can to just live in a denial world when it comes to storms. It's like we dont want to ask for help, because we're just used to living in chaos or turmoil & think that's the normal way of things.... which really, storms ARE always a normal part of life - but the way we handle them can always be worked on.
All that to say, it's always a great time laughing & crying with my wonderful Joyster gang.
I left from there to pick up some things for my parents & to pick up some dinner for Ricky & I & ended up getting home after a long day. But what a great day it was ....
& I had just a few hours before it was time to get ready for the week ahead so it was a lot of loving on doggies .... & picking up dog poop in the back yard. The life of having 5 dogs in your home at once. Good times.
How was your weekend?
Have you seen Justice League yet?
Are you into Spring or still dealing with Winter?
