At church Saturday morning the children had an egg hunt. This is Pennye, their Children's Church director. She is a dedicated Christian that has a special love for children and they certainly love her back.
Later that morning we realized Avery had an encounter with fire ants. She got swollen on her foot but is much better now. We colored eggs and then made some Ohio Buckeye candy. It's peanut butter with chocolate. They were excellent and she got a kick out of making them. Sunday we went to my sister in law's for dinner and had ham, turkey, macaroni and cheese, green beans, rolls and various desserts (Avery's included).
Last night we had a terrible storm here in Atlanta and it knocked out the power until 4:30 this morning. This evening it has gotten cooler and I am so happy I have electricity. I really think it's one of those things that I need to tell the Lord how much I appreciate more often. It was so dark and quiet. I did enjoy the quiet, but it was so very dark. My husband is very safety conscious and he has set me up with fire extinguishers and battery lamps. I appreciate that too.
I am starting a new book by Francine Rivers, "Leota's Garden". This will be my first book by this author, but I have heard good things about her. Have you read any of her books?
