BOMBS GO OFF AT BOSTON MARATHON

G-son arrived at 7am to start the day. Hubbie took him to school so I sneaked in an extra doze on this rainy,cool morning.
After chores and breakfast we decided the weather was too bad for any outside work so we went to check out the bargains at Good Will and at the K-Mart in town that is closing. We found some bargains at each place. At the K-Mart, they were selling their display racks and price stickers and such so I got some things for my market displays.
We stopped at Sub-Way for lunch then headed home to unload and go pick up g-son.
The clouds were still hanging around this afternoon but g-son wanted to play outside for awhile.
Maybe the next Arnold Palmer ????
You know a boy just has to make things more challenging and interesting !!!
Oops !!!
While he and Pawpaw worked to retrieve his golf ball I noticed that I finally have an azalea in bloom.
This one always is the first to bloom but this year it is later than any year I can remember. Hopefully the rest will bloom soon.With all the rain we are getting there surely is no want for moisture this year. I poured another 4/10ths inch from the gauge this evening.
We came inside and had a snack supper before #1 son came after g-son. When we turned the TV on to watch the news we were shocked to see that someone had set off two bombs at the Boston Marathon this afternoon around 3pm.There were at least 3 fatalities and well over 140 injured,most of whom lost legs that were completely blown off by the blast from the bombs.
The scene was total panic and it was sad to watch the injured.
Tonight police are still piecing together evidence at the scene and have no suspect or motive yet.
They are calling it an act of terrorism. There were several other bombs found and dismantled in the area before they could explode.
After chores and a relaxing while sitting in the sunroom watching the birds get their last seed snacks of the day I tackled a task I have been thinking about for a while.
In one of my closets there is a large cedar chest filled with old stuff. I knew there was some old papers and pictures in there so I got it all out tonight and spent the entire evening sorting through it. I now have it separated into decades for easier filing with my other memory things.
Praying tonight for all the victims of the bomb blast in Boston,may they find comfort and understanding in our Lord.
Good Night and God Bless.

Sad events of today for sure... I watched if off and on all day--after it happened... I was talking to one of my sons on the phone. We both talked about there being so much anger and hatred in our world --not just the terrorists, but even from our own people here in this country.. Very very sad.

Beautiful azalea.
Hugs,
Betsy

Sounds like you found some very useful bargains yesterday. The azalea is beautiful....spring flowers always seem so bright. The Boston bombing is so sad and horrible. I pray for the one who did this terrible thing, but more so, I pray for those that were injured. God bless this world we live in, please.

Your azalea bush is beautiful. I watched the news last night until I finally fell asleep. How sad for all those people who were just out to have a nice day. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. There is just so much evil in the world today - very sad! Blessings.

WHEN OUR LEADERS TOOK GOD OUT OF OUR COUNTRY THEY OPENED THE DOOR TO SATAN. SHAME ON THEM. WE CAN ALL CHAT ABOUT HOW BAD THINGS ARE BUT WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT IT. WE NEED GOD FEARING PEOPLE BACK IN WASHINGTON. I HAVE YET TO SEE OUR PRESIDENT AND FAMILY WALK UP THE SIDEWALK OF ANY CHURCH. JUST SAYING. IF HE'S A CHRISTAIN THEN HE SHOULDN'T WORRY WHO SEES HIM ON SUNDAY SITTING AND PRAYING. I'VE LOST TRUST. GRANNY
