First of all, I love Saturday morning - any Saturday morning. Second of all, I love to have night watch at my house, and I am doing that tonight. Third of all, I love this time of the year. I love, love, love it. I am heading out of here in a minute to the 6:30 a.m. Saturday meeting. I love that meeting too!
Last night I got all the scrubbing, scouring, waxing, and dusting done. All I have to do today is cook! I love to cook! I am making something different - I made a sample last night for dinner and it was quite good. It is a chicken sour cream burrito casserole. I don't normally make casseroles, and I normally REFUSE to make any recipe that calls for a "can of cream of something or other soup" YUK. ..... However, I decided to change my mind. And I think I like it. I don't have to be a food snob, I can change! (I am also making a pumpkin pie, and an apple cake, oh, and a salad - and others will bring whatever they bring, such fun.)
It is now about 3 weeks ago, I had a radical new idea. I decided to just sit on it and do nothing. I thought it would go away. It did not go away. I have prayed about it, and it persisted. Yesterday, I finally decided to talk to a few select people about it. They were all delighted, excited, happy, and encouraging. I thought they would tell me to get my head out of my a** and realize I am an old woman. Ha! No one said that! I did some research, requested information, put out some inquiries, and I continue to pray. If I am still thinking along these lines tomorrow, I will put it out here - into the blogosphere - for all to see.
Now I better get ready for the meeting. Oh, Glorious Saturday Morning! I am well again. I can breathe again. I may actually go out for a run this morning for the first time in over 2 weeks!
