It's been a full day off!
Daughter Micah's mini-van was making a lot of racket going down the road. I suggested (nagged?) that she should get it into the shop ASAP because it sounded like something was very wrong. They planned to get it in in the next couple of weeks when they had funds. Knowing she has a lot of long trips in the near future I insisted on paying for it (they will pay me back) so it would get done right away. She was going to take it this morning while I babysat, but she came down with the flu. So badly that hubby Adam stayed home to take care of the girls. I drove the van into town to the shop for her and had a nice couple of hours to read while I waited. :) As it turns out the left front wheel bearings were going out. The mechanic said the wheel was about to leave the vehicle!! I'm not sure if that is literally what would happen, but I'm sure glad it got fixed!
My reading for those couple of hours was The Creative License by Danny Gregory. Really good and inspirational stuff to get one drawing. I'm not much for public sketching, so I waited until I got home to do these two sketches for the Every Day Matters Challenge.
Otherwise, I took a nice nap, had a nice supper, and watched Downton Abbey...twice! I also watched yesterday's church service from my online church. I was home from the auto repair shop by 11, so I had lots of day left. I had even packed a lunch in case I was there all day. I was determined to stay until that car was fixed. Can't have all my precious girls driving in an unsafe vehicle, can I? (What a pushy mom/grandma!)
I pray for a hedge of protection around all of my family members, every day. I really praised God for His protection of Micah and her family, and the double blessing that the repairs weren't very expensive. That's provision!
Thanks for dropping by and listening to me ramble on. :) Everyone stay warm! (Pom, I hope you find a nice heater!)
Shalom, friends and family!
