August Blessings ~ Counting It All Joy! (Third Week)


Summer Adventure's!

The Dog Days of Summer!

August 13~ Waking to the sounds of family starting their day. Just a little more sleep please. More movement.....ummm.....maybe it's time to say good morning. Outside on the patio enjoying the fresh air. The smell of a fresh Summer rain that has cleared the air. Dew drops of beauty, light drizzle to wash away the smoke and haze; leaving that fresh scent of rain, that says's I've washed yesterday's troubles away. Pack up and load my car, it's time to head towards home. Thank you sister's for another awesome weekend jammed packed with friendship, love, fun, and adventure. Always a great time with you, thank you! Love you so very much Christine Good, Rosie. And Jennifer Merritt-Estep, and family included. What a beautiful drive home, even in the drizzly raindrops that are cleansing the air. A misty beauty drive home. I never tire of driving the Gorge. It holds beauty year round. You can find gems every time you drive and it is forever changing; giving you fresh beauty daily, never ever the same twice. Time for an early lunch. Thank You! It's time to get ready for the party. Thank you Cindy Forsythe Rieder for the invite. I had a great time. What a great theme and celebration for Katilynn. Why Hello! Yes! A surprise evening invite. Always good to see you. Yes Lord thank you for another full day. A safe drive home. The Summer rain and cooler temperatures. Fresh clean air that is smoke free. Celebrating milestone and achievements. Time with family and friends. So many treasured nuggets in my journey through this day. A dance and a twirl through each open door bringing friendships, laughter, and smiles throughout the entire day. Feeling loved. Blessings

August 14 ~ Awww....waking in my own room in my own snugly bed! PERFECT! Good morning Monday! New chapter in another week filled with possibilities and opportunities to make this the best day and week yet. Time to start moving. Last visit with one doctor and meeting a new one. Not fun.....but one that is important to maintain my health. Doctor Azada, thank you for the care you have provided me these last two years. Blessings to you on the next chapter of your life. Doctor Hatcher, you have big shoes to fill. Thank you for your time today. Hate tests. Those blood suckers left my arm all bruised up. Time for some pampering. Pedicure time. Oh my feet like this pamper session, need to do more of these. Home to unpack and start packing suitcase for fun in the sun later this week. This day just keeps slipping away. Ice cream! Yes! Ice cream! My weakness. Yummy blizzard from DQ. Sit in my car and listening to music. Sometimes sitting in my house alone is the hardest thing to do after being with family and friends. Looking forward to one day when that won't bother me. But today isn't that day. Today I'm so thankful for a doctor who cares enough to hand select the doctor that would best suit my needs. For the finances to have a pedicure. For my elk steak dinner this evening sauteed in onions, so very yummy. Then wrapping the evening up with a blizzard at DQ. To be able to sit in my car and enjoy some great country music as I watch the sunset and the evening close on this day. Beauty just sitting here watching the evening sky and listening to the beat of the music as my heart beats to the drums of living life. Thank you Lord for giving me another day to write on the blank pages of my life. Blessings

August 15 ~ Good morning Tuesday! Must rise and shine for the activities of the day. Hello Crystal N Koch! So wonderful to share my morning with you before I get my day started; and the pretty country river road drive. It maybe over the thousands of miles of telephone lines, but it is the next best thing to you being here. And just like our visits in person always to short. I think that is true on the phone as well. Much love and prayer my friend you are greatly missed. Love our visit today on the phone. Another lovely drive on the River Road today heading to create smiles of beauty. Two happy ladies! Thank you Dolores and Delia. Love those smiles of happiness. Yea! A McDonald's Happy Meal lunch today with Sherilynn Ganther. Thank you for meeting before meeting today. Back to one of my weekly grinds. Very full and crowded. I will try and push through. Thank you Lord for the very simple blessings of the day. Morning coffee, chat with Crystal. Safety to all my appointments today to and from. My happy meal toy! Leftovers for dinner. Suitcase almost packed. Ticket awaits. A quiet evening with feet propped up. Yep! It's the simple things in life that make my life rich. Thank you Lord. Blessings

August 16 ~ Oh how I want to stay in bed. Good morning Wednesday morning of beauty and smiles. It's going to be short today. Pray it is an easy day. Oh no they added to my day. I had five on the books all held plus two extras. Praise the Lord I got them all in and smiling with lots of beauty. What do you mean I cannot share, answer their questions and talk. That is so ridiculous....sorry didn't realize I couldn't share my life with residents. Ummmm.....thought that was all normal salon chitchat. When thinking of others your issues don't seem so big and large any longer. Love that the ladies are interested in my family and me; wanting to know how they can pray for us. Such beauty in that alone; not to mention a gift of the heart. Thank you my sweet ladies at Beth's Salon. Moving On! Finished up by noon. Right on time. Home to toss laundry in wash, finish packing. Traffic is already getting crazy and it's only Wednesday. TSA was actual nice today. Yeah! Plane delay! Nap time on flight. Laughter and lots of it with Wendi Chapdelaine and Tim Chapdelaine. Love you both. Dinner, and wine. More laughter. Solving world crisis problems, making retirement money off the Solar Eclipse. Yep! We covered it all. Thank you Lord for blessing today with full books and still finished up early enough to get home to finish up for trip. For safe travels, laughter, and Sees candy. Yep another day we can call successful and filled with many gifts and treasures. Blessings

August 17 ~ Good morning sounds at Wendi Chapdelaine and Tim Chapdelaine in Eldorado County in California. Some coffee on the patio...and look momma and baby deer's feeding in the yard. Would love this peaceful view every morning. Slow go for packing up for our day. Stop for groceries. Oh my a remodel! On the road...oh no...traffic jam. An unexpected accident....this is never good. Finally through our delay. Onward to fun! Petaluma where we stop for heirloom seeds at the seed bank. What a beautiful old building. Enjoyed the walk and stretch after being in the vehicle for awhile. Back on the road almost there. Arrive at campsite, in Bodega Bay. Dinner, fire, walk to the beach and back. WOW! So much to be thankful for today Lord. Waking up to another day of possibilities to write on the blank page of today, all the adventures that await. Safe travels, time with friends, sights and sounds in Petaluma. The smell of the ocean and the sight of the rolling waves at high tide. A campfire to warm by. Warm sweaters and hoodies. Oh my! I could just keep going and going. Thank you for this day filled with many gifts and treasures Lord. Blessings

August 18 ~ Good morning Bodega Bay! Fresh air, campfire coffee, bran muffin. Lots of laughter and good company. Head over to the beach; sit on the log and watch the sights and sounds of the activity of the beach. The ocean waves rolling in and out. Finding small treasures to fill my pockets. Then off to Spud Point for lunch and a walk on the pier. Relaxing by the campfire with a glass of wine and a rib dinner. Thank you Wendi Chapdelaine and Tim Chapdelaine. So blessed by this trip. Lord thank you for friends that bless me and a day filled with relaxing and the peaceful beauty of the ocean and the enjoyment of a campfire. For smore's to cap the day off with. Thank you! Blessings

August 19 ~ Waking to misty grey skies my last morning in Bodega Bay. Good morning to the sounds of the camp grounds. A warm fire to sit next too as I drink my coffee. More laughter and relaxing before we clean up and load up to head back to Cameron Park in the Eldorado Hills. What a great few days, thank you Wendi Chapdelaine and Tim Chapdelaine. Stop at the gift stores to pick up salt water taffy, and a sweatshirt. Thank you for my bird Wendi. You can feel the air get heavier and much hotter the closer we get to the valley and the hills. Unload and a yummy steak dinner. Hot shower to wash all that sand, camp dirt and smoke off. Yep very thankful for that hot shower. Today Lord I'm thankful for safe travels, great friends, money to purchase some treats. For a relaxing evening with friends. That hot shower and cozy clothes. Interesting facts and finds. As this night comes to a close thankful for the time I've had here with my friends. So very blessed. Thank you! Blessings

August 20~ Last morning and day with my wonderful friends Wendi Chapdelaine and Tim Chapdelaine. Good morning and thank you so much for this wonderful weekend and blessing. I have had a wonderful time. Sad for it to come to an end. Watched transformations of homes on HGTV with Wendi and then some TBN. Finished repacking my luggage for my trip home. Mostly just R&R with great friends before we had to say good bye. Dinner and the drive to the airport. Never good bye, just until we meet each other again. Check in went smoothly. Think everyone is headed to Portland, planes are full! Felt like a sardine packed into the plane. Thank you Lord for the blessing that Wendi and Tim have been. For an easy check in at airport; and I didn't get onto the wrong flight. For a great landing. For safety all the way. Blessed to have had this weekend with friends and the memories made. Thank you Lord for all you do in and through each one of us daily. The gift of friendship a treasured gem. Blessings
