It must be September! The salmon are going
up the streams to spawn and then die and
the resulting smell leaves a little to be
desired to put it mildly. I think walking is
the worst because there are several streams
that go right under the roads and bridges.
It's a very interesting plan God had, isn't it?
The salmon eggs hatch in the streams, the
baby salmon grow up some and head back
out to the ocean, then come back again to
the very spot they were spawned to lay their
eggs and when they die off their bodies fill
the same streams where they were born
with nutrients. Yep, God is a pretty good
planner to come up with that scenario
waaaay back in ancient times.
I just started attending a bible study at our church
on Tuesday nights called It's Tough Being a Woman
by Beth Moore. I have done a few other bible
studies by her and Wow what a teacher she is.
I love the video series that comes with this study
and the small groups afterwards really help to
get to know women in the church better.
On Wednesday nights I work at our church's
community outreach program for the kids
from 4 years old to 5th grade. We feed them
dinner at 5:30 and the program runs until 7:30.
There are games, challenges, scriptures to
memorize, teaching about Jesus and just an
all around great time.
Last night we served 100 dinners! The youth
come for dinner at the same time before they
go to youth group and let me tell you--those
teenage boys can eat!
Today my husband came home for lunch and
was looking through the local classifieds. He
found a picture of this cupcake display. Now the
weird part is he and I were just talking about
him making me one yesterday. (you know, in all
his spare time)
This is a large one with 6 tiers and last time I saw
it in my cake catalog it was $145.00. I got it
It will work out perfect for me at the Artisan's Market
in December to display the decorated cupcakes and
cookies I will be selling.
Some pictures from the girl's riding day last week. They
had a lot of fun getting soaked to the bone.
sshhhhh...nobody move...whatever you do,
do not call this man.
He is working on a very important, highly
classified and technical job for the renowned
Grandma Tilly and absolutely cannot
be disturbed at this time.
Thank you for your cooperation in
this urgent matter.
