I cleaned up my patio this week. It looks great. I pulled weeds from the seams in the concrete, swept, and cut back the ivy. When I was satisfied, I decided to go inside for a nice glass of water and discovered I had locked myself out of the house! I only had to wait 40 minutes for Brett to get home and unlock the door as it got dark.
Last Thursday, I noticed when I started my car, the clock was reset, the radio switched from CD to FM, and the total odometer was showing rather than the trip odometer. Over the weekend, the security light was on whenever we drove. Brett drove me to work on Monday “so he could get it looked at,” and then I got a text message at about noon “The car is in the garage and I haven’t been able to start it since getting home.” Luckily, this story has a happy ending. My dad came down, charged the battery, got it started, and traded cars with Brett so he could work on ours at his house. During the week, he let Brett know that he put a battery in it and it’s fine. We get to trade back this afternoon.
The reason we’re going to my parents’ house tonight is not all about the car. We are going to a wedding! My youngest first cousin, Cierra, will be marrying her sweetheart Ned tonight. Prayers and well wishes for them! We’ll be back on Sunday for my nephew’s first birthday party. Happy birthday to him!
I’ve been having smoothies for breakfast made in my Magic Bullet. It’s a pretty neat tool, although I haven’t been able to get things as “smooth” as I’d like. I couldn’t beat the price, though, since it was a Christmas gift from my in-laws. Thanks Anita and Ed!
We watched part 1 of Hatfields and McCoys last night. It was pretty good. I’m anxious to see what happens next. Brett said if Kevin Costner wasn’t involved, it would have only been hour instead of six. This is sad, but our greatest frustration was the “blanked out” words. There was a warning for coarse language! We knew what we were getting into. However, whenever someone said a swear word, there was a silent spot in the sound. At least they didn’t use a beeping sound!
Does it make me a bad Christian if I want movies with cussing to have cussing in them?
God bless you and give you a great weekend!
