Yesterday was "fun Friday" here at our house. It's our day off, sleep in, and well...have fun!
After some typical Deanna/Larry fun I worked out for an hour (finally got myself in gear again) and then came home to get things in order to have our friends, Jim and Janice (who just moved here) over for dinner. It was so good. I still have to pinch myself that they are actually here.
We grilled steaks, ate a wonderful dinner, finished it off with fresh strawberries that are now in mass abundance in Florida with strawberry season upon us...dipped in dark chocolate. Mmmm...glad I worked out. We talked late into the night sitting by the fire on our patio. It was a perfect time. I love them so much. I'm so glad they are here. It means more to me than anyone will ever know. Brings a comfort to my soul that I can't describe.
Maddie had her next series of shots yesterday. Even still she remained the playful pup that she is...bounding in after me during every waking moment of her day and tugging on me to come play. I just love her to pieces.
I also enjoyed catching up on much blog reading yesterday that I've missed lately with working on different projects and commented to some of my most favorite current event/spiritual/debate blogs. This is actually one of my fav hobbies and I've made quite a number of friends this way that I wouldn't have met otherwise.
Today finds me getting everything lined up for tomorrow. Larry has had a youth activity most of the day. I'm preaching in the AM, so I've been finalizing my message, getting the powerpoint done, doing last minute organization for our choir dinner and rehearsal tomorrow, making follow up calls to some members, ironing our clothes, and cleaning house. I am hoping to have everything done by 7 pm this evening so that I can make supper, clean it up, work out again, take a shower or "moonlight path" bubble bath, and spend the rest of my time snuggling with the man which is my favorite thing to do of all time. I also have plans to snuggle with Jordan and Maddie and watch "Journey to the Center of the Earth." If I don't finish my work there is less snuggle time so I better go now. Ciao until tomorrow...
