This past Wednesday evening, we took Luke swimming again at our neighbors' house. It was a cold evening, and so, to get there, I had a jacket on him with his hat. Rather than taking him there in pants, I took him there in his swimming trunks and wrapped him in two blankets. As you can see from this photo, he didn't much care for the look. Once we got in the pool, though, he did just fine.
Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit. Psalm 147:5
Last night (Friday) and throughout a good portion of today, it snowed here -- quite a bit. Some scientists and others who are convinced that we're experiencing a catastrophic climate change thanks to all of the bad carbon emissions we're putting into the atmosphere might suspect that this winter storm this late in the season here in Kansas is a sign of dramatic climate change. I, on the other hand, think that it could possibly be God showing us or reminding us of his power. We serve a very powerful God, a very mighty God, and nothing is beneath Him.
Here's a photo from this morning, on our deck. I LOVE how snow collects on top of our table.
My wonderful husband kept us VERY warm (almost too warm) with a fire in our fireplace.
Thanks to the storm, I ended up not working yesterday. Therefore, Luke and I have had probably too much "indoor time." Fortunately today, Marc was home with us, so Luke got to have some "Daddy Time" -- which he LOVES.
We did get out this evening for Ollie's birthday party. Luke did well until a little after 8:00 P.M. He because suddenly very fussy, and I could tell by the "type" of fussiness that there wasn't going to be too much to calm him down. So, we left. Of course, as soon as we got in the car and subsequently home, he was happy as can be :) (I don't think it was your house, Smith's -- it was Luke being PICKY Luke).
This past Thursday evening, I suddenly, out of the blue, had a scratchy throat. I told Marc, "This feels like a cold coming on. Where did this come from?" I was at the grocery store that evening, and I was so sure that it was a cold that I even picked up some cold medication.
Sure enough -- Friday morning -- very congested. I fought it all day on Friday (thankfully, I was off work). Last night, I really didn't feel well, and I haven't felt the greatest today.
I'm hoping that neither Luke nor Marc catch this. It's really not fun. So, here's my cold paraphernalia that's been very important to me for the last two days.
Until I blog again....Tootles!
