Another Full Fun Filled Friday!


131. I went on a date with Mustang Man Saturday night! We went to see the documentary In The Shadow Of The Moon. I cried when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. God is amazing, isn’t He? Can you imagine being able to walk on another planet? Way cool!

132. I was able to go to church on Sunday night! I know this is gonna sound stuck up and I certainly don’t mean it that way, but a lot of my church family lined up to give me a hug and welcome me back. I am blessed with a very loving church!

133. I was able to go to work again on Tuesday afternoon. Boy, was it crazy! The phone rang off the hook. I didn’t realize how much I missed the smell of grinding and welding! Blessed with being able to work with my man!

134. And then on Wednesday my MIL had her second knee replacement and is doing unbelievably well! I was able to go see her and all the family that flew in and drove over for the surgery. Mustang Man has a BIG family! I am blessed with many in-laws. And yes, every single one of us get along perfect! Really!

135. Plus I was able to go to Awana Wednesday night!!!!! We had 13 girls and I only knew four of them. So I was able to meet 9 precious souls. We have two Amy’s that are leaders so I teased the girls and said they could call me Queen if they wanted…lol! And several of them did! I’ll have to work on that next week, but it sure was nice to be back and I did feel like royalty. The kids didn’t want me to walk too much so they brought me whatever I needed. I can tell it’s going to be a wonderful year. Can’t wait to go back next week!

136. Thursday came and I confess that I had way over did it and was hurting…badly! But that’s okay. I stayed home in my pajamas and was able to work from my soft comfy bed. Plus it was very rainy and windy that day so it was best to stay put. I felt blessed because I enjoyed listening to the rain and watching the trees sway back and forth. I even had an hour of peace all to myself!

137. The leaves have FINALLY started changing! And boy are the beautiful. I can’t wait for the smell of burning leaves and watching my family jump in the piles of leaves. It’s fun to do no matter how old you are!

138. Money is tight, always. Goes along with owning your own business! I feel blessed when I can find really good deals using my coupons. Kroger had some great bargains this week and with using my coupons I’m going to be able to get some fun stuff for the kids like Toaster Strudels and some bags of candy for practically nothing!

139. Sleep! With all that's gone on for the past year and a half I've missed out on a whole mess of sleep. Now having my pain cut in half (at least!) I am able to sleep for several hours at a time! Let's just say that my sleepy time makes me a happier camper the next morning!

140. And when I wake up at night my thoughts are of each one of you. They really are! Is that weird? In the still of the night it gives me a great opportunity to pray for your needs. I am blessed in knowing that I have the privilege of praying for you and knowing you and being able to share my thoughts with you!



If you were a dog, what breed would you be, and why?

Easy question...an English Bulldog! I'd love to come back as our dog because I know how much she is loved and spoiled. This picture was taken when we went to Michigan. We got a roll away bed for our son and she immediately claimed it! She would not budge until we bribe her with treats.


What does the color purple make you think of?

Uh, hello? And they called it puppy loooovvveeee! DONNY OSMOND of course!


Approximately how long does it take you to get ready each morning?

Ready for what? If I'm staying home the whole day then a quick brush of the hair and teeth and a pair of clean jammies and I'm good to go. Don't worry, I'm clean cuz I took my shower the night before. But if I am going to go anywhere then I will take another shower and put some extra time in for pampering. I'm slow right now so it takes about an hour and a half to get totally ready, but I'll get faster.

Main Course

How many cousins do you have, and are you close to them?

Okay, let me count them first......I have seventeen on my side and that does not include their spouses, which I also consider my cousins. And yes, we are close! And a pretty cool fact is that a little over half of us were born in the same hospital. Our kids are blessed with a mess of cousins, over 30!

Connie@Little Red Hearts From God said...

It is soooo funny.. Donny Osmonds name is circuiting around as the love man...

I loved him too but not as much as.... Chad Everett.. on Medical Center... maybe that is why I became an OR nurse first... hmmm now that I think about it...

But I still have DO albums... Puppy Love... yea.....

I knew you would mention Donny! ;) And our salads are very similar. If I'm not going anywhere, I personally don't see anything wrong with staying in one's jammies.

Christine said...

Amy Desires Speed :o)!!

Oh, I love to stay in my jammies.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend Amy!

Let me know when you recieve Bella's package. I set up a Swap Update page.

I always love your 'blessings' and I'm glad you take the time to post them. I also like the 'Friday Feast,' but have to mention, of course, that the reference to purple and your answer of Donny made me giggle! Nothing wrong with that answer! :-)
