Still Here

Upon 2 recommendations to hear David's sermon from Sunday, I am going to download it tomorrow and listen to it. I want to hear what all the fuss is about!

Pam has agreed to go with Mom and I to the aquarium on Firday. They were already mostly sold out, but we were able to get a time slot of 4pm. They allow people into the doors of the aquarium in groups based on ticket admit time to keep down over crowding. We'll have about 3 hours to look over the aquarium and see the 4D theatre. I've been wanting to go to a 4D theatre, and this one is supossed to be really good, so we're going to check it out. We'll see. :-)

It was nice to get to see people at church tonight. Not too much excitement, and some people acted like it wasn't a big deal for me to be there, but I got plenty of hugs and hellos from those I do really care about. There's something nice about going back to the church where you grew up (if you have that luxury).

Today I slept in and finished the 5th Harry Potter book. I played Slingo online with LaRae for about an hour and a half while we talked on the phone. Living near each other has spoiled us! I made dinner for Mom and I (5 layer dip and chips...but more of a meal than just a dip), and after church I made my tasty potatoe soup for lunches for the rest of the week. I admit that Mom and I ate a bowl of it after it was finished!

Tomorrow I might go out to the church building to help with some stuff. Ellen (a woman a little older than LaRae) and her daughter might come get me around 10 to go there. If not I'll stay here and read. I'm reading the 6th Harry Potter book. (Not surprised, eh?) When I get back I need to find the Lewisville Library, so I can keep reading more than what LaRae's Lending Library has. I want to start reading the Amelia Peabody series by Elizabeth Peters. I am bringing a bunch of my old books back home with me. I found Backstairs at the Whitehouse tonight. I LOVE that book! Paul, if you haven't read it, you've got to borrow it! (I'll make a trade: I'll really read Booster Gold if you'll read this book!) My 8th grade Georgia History teacher mentioned the book in class one time. He said it was his favorite and was a first hand account of life in the White House during the years of numerous presidents. It's nonfiction and told by a maid at the White House. Anyways, a year of so later, Dad brought home a box of books that his secretary was getting rid of, and lo and behold! There was that book! Mom thought I was insane for picking it out, but I've read it a couple of times and love it!

Well I'm off to bed to read a bit more. Being free in Texas and free in Georgia are about the same: both allow for plenty of sleep and reading. :-) PS-Paul, I've read all of those comic books I borrowed! They were all good! Thanks.

  1. I'm glad you enjoyed the books, and I'll definitely take you up on the book. Unlike Jennifer, though, I still have quite a bit of Davinci Code left. Take care and be safe. We miss and love you.
