I was lying on the couch trying to take my usual Sunday afternoon nap. I wasn't as tired as I normally am on a Sunday afternoon. I'm not sure if it was because I was sleeping better or if it was because son has been out of town for a few days and I didn't lose any sleep wondering why he wasn't home at 3 o'clock in the morning. But as I laid on the couch, I was trying to think of a blog post. Nothing came to mind. I tried to put this together or that together, but it was going NOWHERE.
I think I might have drifted off for a bit, at least Koda didn't woof at me and wake me up like last week.
Everyone I know is going on vacation in the next couple weeks. Makes me want to go on vacation, kind of. I do like seeing new things, but there are a few things limiting us going. Money mainly, but then there is Koda. We sort of don't want to board him considering his need for two shots of insulin a day. So I'll enjoy hearing about others adventures this summer. If you are going on vacation, do tell about it on your blog; I will look forward to virtually visiting that area with you.
So after I realized it wasn't going to be a long Sunday afternoon nap, I got up and read a bit from the book I'm reviewing right now What You Need to Know About Bible Prophecy by Max Anders. Totally enjoying the book; will write the review about it soon when I finish the next four chapters, but I read something today that I had to stop and think about and read to hubby. I want to tattoo it on my heart and mind (figuratively, not literally). From page 126 of the book "physical death is a wonderful gift". You'll have to come back when I review it (within the next week) to hear why it is a wonderful gift. Believe you me, you won't be disappointed. I wasn't.
We had a cesear salad with shrimp and leftover chicken for dinner tonight. So very delicious and low calorie.
I don't know how this happened but I have six bottles of unopened salad dressing in the pantry. Not sure how it happened but I also had at one time recently nine bottles of Ragu spaghetti sauce. I think it had to do with good prices and great bargains and I bought ahead. Eventually will use them all; I think we are down to only six Ragus as of this day.
I totally feel for those people involved in the fire in Colorado; I hope it is out soon. Us in Southern California understand the devastations of wildfires. I personally have never had to evacuate nor lost my house but I have known of people that have.
I totally also feel for those people on the East Coast that were affected by the storms this past weekend. My sister/family in the DC area (though visiting family elsewhere) came to realize they tomorrow are returning home not knowing what to expect. House is supposedly okay but they could be without power and water and definitely food is spoiled and will have to be disposed of.
I'm so blessed where we live though I struggle with it sometimes. We had pleasant weather this past weekend in the mid 70s.
Take care of yourselves. If you are fighting heat, stay cool. If you are fighting fires, I hope rain is sent and fires extinguished.
Whatever you are facing, I hope you remember God loves you and is for you and not against you and you can cling to him. I know I do..........
