Overcast to-day and it seems it may either storm or clear up...one of the two. The weather was perfect over the weekend - I was blessed to get some petunias in the ground and then spend some time with family on Saturday at the lake. Moni worked. Sunday was restful for me other than doing a nifty pot of pulled pork with slaw but Moni worked.
My fantasy teams both won which I think has only happened one other time in eleven weeks. I think next year I may try a league where you updated your lineup daily, just for kicks and giggles.
I can't believe they're already talking about the All Star Game - in the Twin Cities this year.
If the rain holds off I may grill tonight, the Tigers play in southside Chicago at 8:10 Eastern (or 7:10 Central, as it is listed at google.com).
Quick shopping list for after work: meat to grill, asparagus, spaghetti fixins, macaroni and cheese, pop.
Dear Father in heaven,
Thank You for this day. I praise You, You are worthy of praise!
I confess my sins to You - wrong things I have done and right things I have failed to do.
I am thankful for so much; as we discussed this morning...
I pray now for our loved ones, for Your church and all its leaders and laymen - for protection, guidance, and strength: For Francis and all the bishops and priests, for Stan and Rita and Stan and Charlotte and Joey and Justin and Dana and Stosh (have mercy on his soul) and Stacie and Carter and Ryan and Emma and Mary Ann, Dean, Court, Rusty, Mason, Drew, Jake, Quinn Evelyn, Meggie, Brett, and Kacie E.
