Ugh! Things keep disappearing in my house. I do not lie when I tell you that I put the kettle on for a cup of tea last night and got the tea bag, put it in the mug, wrapped the "tea dipper" paper around the handle and looked away for a moment. When I turned back to it, the bag was not in the mug! It was no where to be found! I looked at dd’s friend and said, "You DID just see me put the tea bag in there, didn’t you?" He said yes. Then where was it? It never turned up!
Today I couldn’t find the honey. DD said she was getting worried about me as she had just seen it. It was in the refridgerator! Honey doesn’t go into the fridge! Random fact – honey is the only food known to man that doesn’t spoil or go bad.
This can be mad scarey, you know? I almost feel like Ingrid Bergman in Gaslight (I think that is the name of the movie). Her husband (Charles Boyer) is trying to make her think she is insane by saying she is doing things or not doing things she has or has not done.
Anyway, my wonderful granddaughter is feeling much better. My daughter felt sick the following day and my son got sick the next day, Saturday. He had a fever of 103. The fever broke early this morning and he still had a sore throat so I took him to the doctor for a strep test. So far it is negative. I say so far because the three minute test isn’t as accurate as the culture and we are still waiting on the culture results. Please all say a prayer that Himself and I don’t get this wretched virus, too.
This is week two of being full time babysitter for Bells. My wonderful dd got a full time job and I just couldn’t bear the thought of the baby being watched by a stranger. Who would love her like I do? Well, I am having a fun time, so far. I was rather worried that I wouldn’t be able to handle it but, by the grace of God, we are doing very well, thank you very much.
This past weekend was nice. Friends of ours who live out of state were here and we stayed with mutual friends a couple of hours away so we could all visit. It is a shore town and I was the only one who didn’t go on the beach (sunburn is my enemy). They all came back pretty fast because there was a land breeze and the biting flies got to them. Oh, well. Himself and I walked to the beach at dusk and it was so very beautiful. So clean and different shades of blue. It makes me want to break out in the old hymn How Great Thou Art. "Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee, how great thou art! How great thou art!"
Hope ya’ll have a great week. Don’t forget to "Walk with the King today and be a blessing." gail
