Our little Calli Doodle has been so distracted today. She’s been intent on staring out the window. I figured I’d better find out what she was staring at, just in case it might be someone who shouldn’t be in our yard. So I went to the window to see what was in the yard. I looked and looked. Thought maybe it could’ve been a squirrel. Nope. I finally saw what it was that had her attention. A group of birds trying to find something to eat. It wasn’t sparrows. I thought they might be chickadees. Ya see, Calli is an indoor only kitty but she was having herself a fit to go outside to get herself a birdy. She wouldn’t know what to do with it if she got it. Besides, we won’t let her outside.
I cooked a roast tonight. Cooked it in the oven in a roasting pan. We haven’t had much beef lately. Matter of fact our eating habits have changed a bit in the past year. We don’t eat much bread, nor potatoes. I’m not saying we quit totally but we rarely eat those things any more. Tonight I fried some zucchini, instead of potatoes. I use organic coconut oil. We don’t eat very much fried food either but I figured that coconut oil is healthy so, yes, I fried the zucchini.
Roast and fried zucchini, that was it. Hubby ate a piece of whole wheat bread too.
And while I was cooking supper, hubby came into the kitchen to get a drink. I started laughing and he asked me what was so funny. I told him he reminded me of Sheriff Andy Taylor of Mayberry. He asked why. I said because Andy always seemed to have one pant leg straight and one tucked into his boot.
I know I said I would try to start writing on a regular basis. Remember I wrote that I was training for a new job, same company, just a different assignment. Well, guess what. Next week I’ll be training for a whole other different job, same company. So this week I’ve been training my replacement. Actually, I’ve worked on this new team some years back, though they have taken on some different clients. I’ll have the same supervisor that I had back then and she’s a terrific boss so I’m going to be comfortable with this transition.
Only thing is. I got a jury summons for the week after I start back on my old team. I’m a little agitated about having to drive to downtown Ft Worth, but I know the Lord will go before me and work things out for me. And He will protect me all the way over there, while I’m there and on my way back home in rush hour traffic.
A couple years ago I found this water that I love to drink. The name of it is Penta. Around here I can get it at Whole Foods Market, Albertson’s and Central Market. I love this water.
I never drink or cook with faucet/tap water. Can’t stand the thought of ingesting chlorine and who knows what else is in the city water.
I found this cute Valentine box at Tom Thumb. I’m going to find something I can give to my precious husband. Husband and I have never been much interested in celebrating Valentine’s Day. We used to go out to eat. These past few years we prefer to order take-out and sit in front of the TV at home watching a good Christian family movie. It always seemed like a superficial holiday. All about retail making $$$ and not a very meaningful “real” holiday. My husband and I love each other deeply and we do that every day of our married lives. But this year I wanted to do a little something. I just need to figure out what to put in the little box for my honey.
One last thing before I put myself to bed. (Tomorrow is my last day to train my replacement.) To encourage us, here are some of my favorite Bible verses.
1 Cor 2:9 However, as it is written: “No eye has seen, nor ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him.”
Ephesians 3:20-21 Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen
Isaiah 43:19 See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.
Jeremiah 29:11-14 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you seek Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and will bring you back from captivity.
Have a fantabulous weekend!
