1. The Big News
I have had lots of people ask me in real life, and I have said a little too much on Facebook, so I am announcing this here in a not so big way right now . . .
We are adopting!
More to come on that. A real post soon. But for now, pray for us because, God willing, in about 18 months, we will be travelling to China!
2. My Mother's Day present
I am a bit behind the "technology curve." I always have been. When I was a freshman in college, I took a class called Popular Music in America (don't judge). And, on the first day of class the professor asked us to raise our hand if we did NOT have a CD player? (Yes, I am that old!) I was one of the two, in a class of about 60 people, who did not have a CD player.
And, today, I am a smart phone "hold out." I am lucky I can text on my phone, really. But, that will change. I need one for work, so now it will be a tax write-off. Hubby is hinting that this may just be a good Mother's Day present . . .
I am hoping so!
3. Tree Cutting Day
We had a tree in our back yard that was dangerously close to our house and had a rotten section of trunk. Today was the day it was cut down. Due to its proximity to the house, the fence, and our power line, they used a crane to LIFT large sections of the tree out of the back yard, over our house and into the front yard.
|You can see the whole front section that is rotted to the ground.|
|Yep, that 40 yr old trunk got lifted over our house!!|
|Little did the workers know that they would be fodder for a blog post!|
I am thinking of switching my blog to wordpress. Not for blogging itself, but for the other options I can do with it. Between the Run for the Little Flowers, fundraising for our own adoption, and really needing a website that has information about my Life Coaching, I need a space with a little more flexibility. The only thing I do not like about Wordpress is having to type in so much info just to comment on a blog post. That will not be my problem, but will be problematic for anyone who reads my blog and would actually like to comment.
What are your thoughts? Anyone have wordpress and love it?
5. Adoption Fundraiser
Not ours, but this one is too cute not to share. This family is adopting a little girl, Susan Elizabeth, from China with a heart condition and is doing a virtual run as a fundraiser. Go check it out!
6. Totally random
I found this picture when uploading he tree pictures to the computer. Yes, that is a dog in a Christmas stocking! And, no, it is not ours.
7. Little Flower cuteness to make you smile through your weekend!
Have a great weekend everyone!
