Cleaning with the gators...
So this week I'm preparing 6 messages. Seriously.
That's just the tip of the iceberg. I have about 40-50 work initiatives right now besides that in order to be able to take some time off. I've actually knocked out an amazing amount so far and am going along at a good clip. My brain feels like mush right now since I've been writing teachings, and the last thing I want to do is write something that requires any serious brain power right now.
We went to Home Depot last night after work to get some stuff for the weeds that seem to love our yard so much. It's amazing how healthy weeds are and what it takes to kill them.
Larry tried to annihilate some weeds while Jordan cleaned the jacuzzi. While doing that he saw an alligator in the backyard that was about 8 ft. He called us out to look at it. This is not really shocking when you live in Florida. In fact the photo above was apparently taken by a homeowner who had an interesting visitor at the door one day. Glad this has never happened to me this up close, that's for sure! We tried to take a photo of the gator but it was aleady too dark outside.
I cleaned the fridge (one of my least fav jobs but it's gotta be done). Then we ate chili for dinner. Not exactly a summertime food but I was craving it, so it's what we had. I was also able to get a bike ride in tonight for a few miles. It was so awesome to be out there. I haven't been in days because it has been thunderstorming so bad.
I should have "fun Friday' today but honestly my house needs a lot of attention and I'm going to be working on it all day doing stuff in preparation for company to come. I am dreading a day of housework but I'll have to do some things to make it as fun as possible to make the time go by in getting it done. What I normally do to make cleaning more enjoyable is light candles and play music I like or I listen to some of my favorite preachers while I clean and get a few hours of the Word in me while I clean. Many times T.D. Jakes and I clean the house together. :-) At least I got to sleep in before I had to start working.
