Moving Forward

Today was a nice day. My dear friend picked me up for our 10 am Bible Study, and four of us (one is in China) fellowshipped and knitted and enjoyed each other's company. It was especially enjoyable to me after a week of fevers and chills and doctor appointments, and a lovely prelude to the new week and the upcoming surgery.

A little later in the afternoon I joined DD and Jacky and the twinnies at the Harvest Festival at church. Jack was so cute as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. His costume even had muscles. He ran and ran and played as hard as he knew how. What a joy to watch that child have fun! And when it was time for clean up he was right in the middle of it. He thinks of himself as a "bewwy stwong man" and does his best to lift, pull, heave, or carry. His enthusiasm outweighs his skills, but he gets an A for effort.

This evening we all went to Elmer's for dinner. That was nice. We often go to Applebee's because it's close, but it's so loud and busy that it often isn't fun. Elmer's was just the right note to end a long day. The babies slept through dinner (always a plus), and Jack was charming, although he refused to eat. Too much junk at the party?

I'm so relaxed and happy this evening. That's the way I like it.
