Today was a quiet, restful day. I woke up this morning around 5:30 and had some trouble falling back to sleep because it was so very windy outside. I could not believe the sound of the wind. I have heard it said before that a tornado coming sounds like a train and I did hear that, but it turns out it was a train. haha
I did fall back to sleep after a while and when I did get up Starla and Bill were just getting ready to leave the house. Starla had to go to the hospital to have her monitor checked and the batteries changed. Bill was going to work. I guess I had the place to myself.
I got caught up on some of my paperwork for FedEx that I have been procrastinating on. And then I worked on some church stuff too. Then I got most of my Christmas cards ready.
Starla came home then and she helped me make some pies for our dinner tomorrow. Bill, Starla and I are having a turkey dinner tomorrow, thanks to Mary, Bill's mom. She gave them a turkey. It is huge! So we decided to go ahead and make it. I am excited. I can't wait to eat turkey, noodles, sweet potatoes, stuffing, and pie. Oh yeah, and cranberry sauce. I am trying really hard not to be depressed about not having Thanksgiving dinner with my whole family. I won't think about that now.
We watched some junk on tv for awhile and then I read for awhile. It was a peaceful day. I needed that.
I went to Biblestudy this evening. Jeff taught us a good lesson on the beginning of the church. After the lesson I showed some of the people there my pictures from our trips.
Now we are watching Forest Gump on TV. You know, Life really is like a box of chocolates. You don't ever know what you're going to get.
When I get a box of chocolates I always break them in half to see what they are before I eat them. I want to know what I am getting. And that's all I have to say about that.
