Quick Flying Times...

Whew! This weekend came roaring in and soared right out! Friday night was dreaded grocery store night, then Saturday poor Peanut had to have his shots & get his nails clipped. He is such a trooper. We have never had such a well behaved dog at a Vet. I mean he just sits there and lets them do whatever & looks at us to make sure we are still standing right there. So precious!

Alabama played Western Kentucky & thankfully returned to the team we saw beat Clemson 2 weeks ago. They won 41-7: Nice. Our house was definitely on the quiet side this week, we only had me, Marcus & Rob. Cooking was simple. I made some yummy Bacon Cheeseburgers, homemade onion rings, & cheesy fries. YUM!! Game day fare for sure. We had brownies & ice cream for dessert, it was delicioso!

Sunday came & went quickly. We really were quite lazy, a quick nap here, movie watching there, I grilled fish for the first time ever. Note to self: olive oil on the grill bars BEFORE you lay the fish down. :) It was quite good. I found a recipe for a ginger glaze that is wonderful on chicken or fish.

So as for a weekend it flew by, but it was nice. I was a bit preoccupied about one of my best friends the whole weekend & the trying times she and her family are going through. There were moments where I would just tear up and wish I could share a hug or just sit with her or even call. But I held off on calling because I knew she had a house full & knowing her was putting up a strong front for anyone around. I did text a message and was ecstatic when I got a response. I cannot imagine how they are feeling right now. But I know her faith is one of the strongest that I have ever encountered and I know her heart is one of the most loving that ever walked the earth. Her & her family will make it through this that I know. I hope she remembers that tears are not a vice but so often more a virtue and that here in Bama there are people who will cry with her, laugh with her, dream with her, and remember with her whether we are 7 hours away or 30 minutes. We love you & consider you all an extension of our family. I cannot wait to see you! :)

  4. OK, love the background. Would you believe I still haven't read Breaking Dawn? My mom was supposed to send it to me, but hasn't yet. (She's probably reading it first!)
