Blogging Away

I have reviewed so many books recently and posted blogs for drawings to give away the book, that it seems like it’s been months since I’ve written a blog. So today, I just want to write about all kinds of things.

This weekend has been so enjoyable. Most Fridays, I go grocery shopping for my parents. Because they are on a limited income, I shop for them at Wal-Mart. Believe me, that is the only reason I shop at Wal-Mart. But, that’s a blog for another day! This past Friday, the weather was really obnoxious and I was not feeling my best , so I stayed in all day long. And I wrote, or did writing-related activities all day long. I really needed that kind of day to get myself “back on track,” at least somewhat, with my writing.

Saturday, the weather was much more cooperative and I was feeling good. I left my house around 9AM, bought the parents’ groceries and delivered them and was back home by 10:30. The rest of the day was spent with my sweet husband. We ran some errands, spent some time at home and then he took me out for a wonderful dinner. We really needed that kind of day together and we both enjoyed it.

Today, I went to the early service at my church. The worship service was awesome. My priest gave an excellent sermon on “The Things that Derail Us from Living a Successful Spiritual Life.” His messages can be heard on (You can pay me later, Bp. David! Just kidding, folks!)

About 3PM this afternoon, my darling hubby left for the airport. We have been so blessed that he has had engagements that allowed him to work from home for the last 3-4 months. But, we knew that would come to an end at some point, and today’s that point. He is on his way to D.C. for a two week assignment, although he will come home on the weekend. Then, if all goes as planned, he will be on an assignment in San Francisco for 6 weeks. He probably won’t be coming home every weekend while he’s there because it’s such a long flight and it basically takes a day to travel. I will be going out to spend a few days with him. I’ll go just before a weekend and we will do the “tourist” thing over the weekend. Then I will stay a few more days and I will write during the day while he is at work. Sounds great to me!

Now, that I’ve thoroughly bored you with my weekend tale of adventure, I will remind you that I do have a drawing currently going on to give away Joy DeKok’s Rain Dance. Leave a comment under that blog and your email address for a chance to win an autographed copy. Drawing will be on Friday, September 4. Good Luck!

Maybe while Dave is gone we can get together and share tips (and coffee) on dealing with husbands who are physically absent from the family. And anything else we care to discuss. :)

That is not boring. That is sharing your life with your readers.
I enjoy your posts.
