1 Thessalonians 5:23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

With a loud clap of thunder, followed by lightening – I sat up in bed and grinned. I love storms! This one was moving at a pretty good pace, but it still managed to produce several more claps of thunder as it rolled it’s way through. I snuggled back into my blankets, after all, it was only 4:30 in the morning. I was up and moving, for the day at 7:30, and I had really enjoyed being able to fall back to sleep so easily after the storm.
I went to get Mike up at 9, and he’d already gotten himself awake and was just beginning to get dressed. When he came into the living room, he saw a turkey hen, with at least 9 chicks, wandering through the back yard. We left for the chiropractor’s office at 9:30.
We finished the appointment, and went to Elmer’s for brunch. I had strawberry waffles, and Mike had fish & chips, and home from there. When we pulled into the driveway, Caden was sitting in front of the planter putting the rocks into a tub. Bless his heart! I was tickled to see him doing that for Grandma. I need to make sure I have some snacks for him, if he choses to come back and do more. 🙂 Mike sat on the sofa and took a 2 hour nap, and then went downstairs to watch tv. I went to my office and worked on the diamond painting project. I am now about 1/4 of the way done.
Though I went out to check on my garden this afternoon, I didn’t do anything with it. It was chilly out, and damp. I tend to get a sore throat if I get chilled and damp and I didn’t want to risk it. So basically I didn’t do any outside projects at all today – though I have been thinking about what I should consider tackling next, after I finish with the garden area. This evening more rain, more thunder, again it didn’t last long.
I also have a couple of “in the house” projects that are waiting to be completed. Mostly I am waiting on a bookcase to arrive, and I will attempt to put it together myself. I have 2 matching file cabinets in the office, sitting side by side, and the bookcase will be put on top of the cabinets. Another project I have to finish is changing all my plastic hangers for wooden ones. I have to wait for the rest of the hangers to arrive. Soon the closet will be completed; and once the bookcase is together, I am hoping to finish organizing the office. (Though that might be a miscalculation)
Mike was testy this evening. He had picked his wallet up, carried it to the family room, and then forgot where he put it. He told me he had searched every where and he must have left it in the car. I assured him he had taken it with him when he went to watch tv, but he argued with me and refused to believe me. He started out to the garage, and I went into the family room, picked up his wallet and carried it out to the garage to show him. He told me I was over reacting. I asked him why he didn’t believe me and he asked me if this was worth an upset. I stated, “it’s not just this, it’s every time I tell you where something is, you refuse to believe me, and continue to search. Why don’t you trust me enough to accept what I am telling you?” His response. “Okay, Okay! I get it” (But does he really?) By this time it was 9:45 and I asked him to just go to bed since it was almost 10 pm. He looked at me and told me, “Don’t pressure me, I am going to watch tv.” (sigh) However, I checked on him at 10:15 and he did turn off the tube and now he’s in his room, door closed, lights off! (Yea!)
Tomorrow is a day at Bennett House for Mike – I think I’m going to go downtown and do some shopping.
