A beautiful day!

These photos were actually taken yesterday, but I love how the clouds looked like spilled milk.

Today the three grandgirls next door were out racing around, enjoying the sunny day! Audrey's wearing the uniform of the day. A t-shirt with mud boots and gloves. The gloves are so they can make snowballs to throw at each other and the boots are because the driveway is muddy. Hey, it must be 40 degrees (F) out there. Who needs a coat?

I felt a little cabin fever coming on today, but Micah and I didn't really want to drive all the way to Park Rapids (12 miles) and she really didn't need to go to the store. I had a list, so I headed 5 miles in the opposite direction of Park Rapids to a neighboring small town (even smaller than Nevis!) that has a Dollar General. Our Walmart has been out of a lot of things, but this little Dollar General even had toilet paper! I have plenty of TP, not because I bought huge amounts when this started, but I did buy one extra package. I bought what I needed and thought this is probably a great boon for these little small town grocery stores who are now getting some business. I'll give them mine! Next time I need anything I'll probably just drive into Nevis and check the two grocery store/convenience stores we have. It was nice to just get out and drive for a bit. I took a nap when I got home, which also made me feel better. :)

Here is a little group of "inchies" I made in the last couple of days. I'm not sure who will get them. They're for a PIF (Pay-It-Forward) Blind Inchie swap where you just post and ask who wants them, and the receiver doesn't know what they look like until they get them. I like these swaps because I can make any theme I like.
I'm planning to watch my church's online service from yesterday. Whoops! I forgot to tune in! I also watch Open Door Church in Burleson, Texas.  On another uplifting front, I might subscribe to PureFlix. I have no TV and this having-no-movies-to-watch thing is getting old!

I still have plenty of books and artwork, but it's nice to have something with sound now and then. I listened to lots of music on YouTube this morning, but I can only take so much of that and I need some calm again. So, I'm back and forth. :)

Thanks, everyone, for your blogs! It's good to keep in touch with folks from around the country and the world! Gretchen, I'm having some problems commenting on your blog but, hopefully, that will work itself out. ;)

Stay safe and well-occupied! It's a good time for prayer and contemplating on the things of God. I need to keep that foremost in my thoughts.

Love you all!
Shalom!

  1. Dear Lisa, thank to to give me here the possibility to look into your day! What a fine blue sky! I LOVE this old snow!!

    Here in Germany all people bought all paper for toilettes. I still have some sheets of it - - Maybe tomorrow I will get some from my church, because it is closed. Normally I make the flowers for my church for every Sunday. But now everything is strange -

    May the Lord hold His sheltering hands over us - - -

    Greetings and blessings from Dori from the Bavarian Forest.
