OK, time has gotten away from me.

We entertained last weekend so I didn't really have any time to play in blog land. 

We found out Thursday night that we were having an overnight guest on Friday.  So we decided how we wanted to entertain.  The weather outside is beautiful this time of year so we decided to have a barbeque.  Oops...that meant we needed to scrub down the patio and the patio furniture.  Tom took care of that one.  If they wanted to sleep in our house, Shadow would have to give up her room.  So I tackled the defurring of the guest bedroom.  I also had to work from home on Friday so I juggled that in between cleaning out the guest bedroom and doing laundry. 

Don got there Friday night about 6:30 and we ate outside even though darkness had fallen by the time we got it on the table.  They were a little cool but I was quite comfortable and thought seriously about moving my bed out  I love this time of year. 

Don and Tom grew up together and also went into the Air Force together.  They had plenty to chat about since it's been a lot of years since they were around each other.  We visited them in July (Don and Mary his wife) and they hadn't seen each other in over 20 years and barely recognized each other...

Here are some pictures of Tom and Don reminiscing on Saturday morning...sorry about the black triangle at the top...sometimes the shutter on our camera sticks and doesn't open all the way.  I never notice it until I review the pictures...ah well.

 Here Don is showing Tom is sky diving adventure.

 Tom is watching the sky diving video going "nope..don't think I would want to do that."  HA!  Since I can't even get on a step ladder without feeling shaky, I KNOW I never want to sky dive.

Tom and Don went to some space museum on Saturday while I visited with Nancy and got my hair and nails done.  I am sure I had more fun doing that than joining

We FINALLY got our new recliners last weekend too.  They are just as comfortable as I remember them being.  8-)  Now we're just waiting for the new gazebo to get here.

Here is some Max for today...

"What is Grace?

By Max Lucado

“My grace is enough for you. When you are weak, my power is made perfect in you.” 2 Corinthians 12:9

What is grace? It’s what someone gives us out of the goodness of his heart, not out of the perfection of ours. The story of grace is the good news that says when we come, he gives. That’s what grace is . . .

Grace is something you did not expect. It is something you certainly could never earn. But grace is something you’d never turn down."

By Grace Alone -
