Things...

Wednesday Wanderings ... in the mind.

Had a special treat last night.  Got to see Christopher and Max, Brandon & Danalyn through Skype ~ thank you Brandon for getting that hooked up.  It was fun to see each of you.  Can't wait to Skype again soon.  

Slept well last night.  Woke just before 9:00 feeling rested for the first time in a few days.  I think I am kicking this bug!


The sun is shining again today.  It is a little warm, especially driving in the car.  Ron is up at Norm & Kristy's helping with something in their basement.  I am hoping he gets home while it is still light outside so we can go for a walk along the beach.

Today I sent off two more emails applying for jobs ~ this time in California.  Some of you may be wondering why we are still looking for work ~ well the job we got selling Christmas trees is only from 11/23 to 12/24 so we need employment beginning in January.  Ron did speak to a guy in Texas about doing security work at an oil field in Texas or Louisiana.  He needs to do something but I am not sure what.  We appreciate your prayers for our job situation.

Today I am thankful for friends.  Ron and I are richly blessed with many friends.  Not just people we know but true friends.  Those people who care about the day to day things that affect us.  Who share their lives with us and ours with them.  Friends who have stuck by us through the tough times and celebrated with us in the good times.  I am also thankful for all my blog friends.  It is fun getting to know each of them and share our life with them.
 
Speaking of friends ~ we would appreciate continued prayers for our friends Lynda & Jerry.  Lynda's dad passed away late yesterday afternoon.  I am thankful that Lynda was able to make ti to Alabama to be there with him and the rest of the family.

To answer a few questions ~~~
~ the casino with $2 dinners is the Nooksack Northwood Casino in Lynden, WA
~ yes $2 for a buffet dinner on Tuesday's
~ yes we will be staying in our motor home on site while selling Christmas trees.  One day next week I need to go to the storage unit to go through our Christmas decorations.  I want to decorate our home for the season.  We have 19 boxes of Christmas decorations to go through.  I am sure we will not use all of them :) - I will take pictures once we are in our site and all decorated.

Update on motor home ~ Ron spoke to John at Jerry Chambers this morning.  They are waiting for final approval to go ahead and do the repairs from the insurance company.  Ron is calling Steve this afternoon to see what the delay is.  We had initially thought we would be back in the motor home by this Friday but that is definitely not going to happen.  Once we get the go ahead from Steve Ron will talk to John and see what the time table is.  We definitely need to be back in soon so we can do what we need to do before heading out to sell Christmas trees.

Guess that's all for today - take care and have a great day wherever the Lord leads.
