Weekend potpourri

So last night I went with two gal pals to our favorite place to meet.  It's a little hole in the wall up north from us about 30 minutes.  We love it there because first of all the food is fab, the ambiance is so cool, and it's more private for us if we happen to be discussing sensitive matters.   

One of my friends loathes having her picture taken. When I got out my phone to snap a pic I said, "don't flinch, I'm not taking your pic (at least not your face)...knowing how much she hates photos I just turned the camera downward and got a shot of all of our feet while we were sitting outside the place waiting to go in.

They really wanted to go to this particular place last night because it's a favorite even though it's not on my program as far as Weight Watchers.  My solution is to order what I really want and box half of it up.  I did so, and stayed right on track.  Then I brought the rest home and threw away the sour cream from the restaurant and used my own light sour cream when I ate the other half for lunch today.  Delish! 

Again I'm really glad my walking partner Liz doesn't read blogs or facebook because she'd really be upset that I went to this place without her since chile rellenos are her favorite food and they happen to have amazing ones at this place. :)  Someday I will go there with Liz.  My problem is I mark things like that down on the agenda in my head and get to them about 6 months later...

I always look forward to Saturdays when they are slower paced.  Today I have more to do than I would like but of course I still make time for blogging.  I had an appointment for some medical tests this morning -- glad that's behind me.  Never fun!  Then I had some coaching calls to make for my job at NextJob, and now I am handling lots of things around the house today that are must-do's.  I will be glad when Sunday comes. It's not really a "day of rest" for us being that we are pastors, however once tomorrow late afternoon comes, I plan to get a very good Sunday afternoon nap.

It's thunderstorming here today - raining real hard.  We need it.  I'm so grateful for the natural rain, and believing for a great move of God's spirit tomorrow.  Someone gave me a word from the Lord that they felt in their spirit as they prayed for me and for CC this week...it was about rain. Interesting that it's raining today for the first time in a  long time outside.  I can't wait to see what will unfold spiritually.  I am so ready.
