A potpourri of things...

Finally, the official photographic proof that Jordan actually competed in the Savage Race! :)
 I think he had a good time! It was pretty warm in Dallas, so it's good they stayed muddy and wet a lot.
It's been an action packed day here. It's my day off so I told Micah I would watch Audrey and Hazel while she and Adele went to the chiropractor. Micah needed a hip adjustment. Micah and Adam had been having some problems with their van, and it ended up pooping out and dying just as they got to the chiropractor. A quick phone call to her sister-in-law, who lives next door, and she ran over with her kids to watch A & H while I ran to town to help Micah. We waited for the tow truck and then drove to the Ford dealership to see if Micah could get a loaner until next week, since they can't look at her van until Monday. She got a nice Dodge SUV (I usually get a 1990's something mini-van that smells like an ashtray!) with a DVD player! I'm glad for her. She's one of God's favorites. :) So, we'll see what next week brings for her van. I'm off on Monday again, so I'll be available if she needs me.

And here is#3 for the Horse Lovers Unite swap...
My fourth card will be a regular horse. I'm hoping to finish it up today and send these off tomorrow.

Before going to Micah's this morning I plopped a pork loin, some potatoes, onions and green beans in the crockpot. I just ate this yummy meal for an early supper. (Ketchup is always required with potatoes. I know...I'm a redneck.)


Wishing you all a fantastic weekend! Pray for me. I'll be working. ;)



Shalom, friends and family!

  1. Hi Lisa! Oh no! Car troubles! I'm glad you could help and the DVD player will be fun for the girls!
    Your horses are great as usual.
    I sent a package off to you today! I think you'll get it next Thursday.

    Oh! That crockpot supper looks SO good! Our son teases us because we love what he calls "ketchup meals"!

  3. Love your horses, Lisa, the header one and the other one. Cooking for one is a challenge. I think you are managing to have better meals than I am. I find I am eating out more and my hips show it.

    1. That was one of my healthier meals, lol. I'm falling prey to comfort foods and frozen entrees a lot. :)

Your skirts on the prevoius posts as pretty and sensible, I had a couple like them that listed years, the best thing is they don't need ironing! Thanks for your comment on mine, yes - womens perogative to change her mind indeed! Blessings to you and your family. Betty
