I got chores done, had breakfast then cooked some scalloped potatoes for lunch and left them in the oven to keep warm.
We headed to church on a nice warm cloudy morning.
We had a young man that has recently been called to be God's servant from his job as a highway patrolman preaching the sermon today and he did a great job. Kyle Smith definitely has a servants heart as I have watched him for several years since he and his family joined our church several years ago. Even while he was working for the highway patrol he always managed to serve in any way he could at church. So I wasn't surprised when he announced he felt called by God. I was a little worried that his demeanor of quiet and humble wouldn't give him the voice projection he would need to preach but today after hearing him preach those fears vanished because he did a great job.
We came home to a lunch or roast beef, corn on the cob, green beans, scalloped potatoes, biscuits and sour dough bread toast.
#1 son's family and Aa's family joined us and the kids all had a great time together.
After everyone left hubbie broke the golden rule and mowed the grass today since this is the first non-rainy day this week and tomorrow has another high percentage of rain prediction. This is surely how everyone in our area feels.
I took a break and sat on the porch in my favorite rocking chair. Unfortunately the view from the porch is now completely blocked by the lush greenery of spring and summer.
Now our "porch settin" will have to move to the covered patio so we can look down over the road and out into the mountains.
When hubbie finished mowing we made a trip to Tractor Supply to pick up some fencing and overhead netting for the new guinea house lot.
We came home and watched the news which is still filled with the Friday night flooding pics in Polk County which now clearly show the devastation there.
We got chores done in a light sprinkle of rain but that is all we have gotten today for the rain free'est day in a week.
This little nugget turned 11 months old today as her family returned home from a weekend visit to some family in Mocksville,NC.
To continue with some of the May decade memories here is my report card at the end of my 8th grade year.
Back then the 7th thru 12th grades were in the same building and I knew the seniors that were graduating because we actually all went to school together . This is the 1968 graduation ceremony program and a list of the graduating seniors.
Going into another week counting my blessings and prayerfully asking for God's grace for my family as we move toward the end of another month.
God Bless and Good Night
