Back to School with a vengence! :)

Well today was our second day back to school, and frankly I'm bored in the sociology class and I hope I do okay! I spent several hours trying to read and study the first chapter for class tomorrow! At least our teacher is funny but it's a long 2 1/2 hours!

I miss Mar and Connie our Education professors classes went by so quickly when we were in their classes!

However some new things coming on the horizon like a possible position in a Christian School come fall! I'm excited about what God is doing for our valley in ways of leading us to go deeper with him and also to start somethings to try and draw our sister churches together!

Well I must get going must get to sleep earlier tonight since we're now getting up at 7:30 AM which really isn't too bad except I'm just not used to it! Good practice for later!

Yay today is the day that we get to go canoing and I'm excited, I love going canoing! I'm going with my sis-in-law. Hubby doesn't like water too much and said maybe if he ever gets his courage back up he'll go again! I like going and going swimming while i'm at it! Don't know if we'll be allowed today since the river is up a bit! But I must go get ready to go, have to stop by our old place and pick up my crock shoes so I don't destroy good ones!
Camp has been wonderful and refreshing and I have had many prayer answered! Thank you Jesus, for giving us just what we need!

Our Puppy has been sick since Sunday night and we haven't had the money to take him to the vet so last night I decided before church that we would annoint him and pray over him. I believed God could do it because it says in His word cares for the sparrows so why wouldn't he care about another of His creatures. And He's worked in that way before, I had a dog several years ago that got Parvovirus, which severely dehydrates and will kill them pretty quickly and again I didn't have alot of money but I did do the at home IV solution but even that didn't seem to help so it gots so bad I finally just put him back out on the porch (I had, had my church family praying for him as well) and the next morning he scarfed down his food! So I believe in the power of prayer even for your pets!
Last night was a wonderful service at SEO Youth Camp! People shouting praises and walking the aisles several were saved or recieved help at the altar. I've really been enjoying as much of camp as we've been able to get into! We are to sing tonight since last night we didn't get the chance which is perfectly all right by me, God was there and it's up to God how he directs the service.

Busy, Busy Tuesday Ahead

Well Tuesday has arrived and it will be a busy one with lessons beginning at 3:30 and going through 5:45! Then we have Camp service tonight. I enjoyed last night it was a very good service, they did the mortgage burning ceremony for the camp since it was paid off this year!
Puppy is still sick and not sure what I'm gonna do with him! The Veterinarian said to worm him and I'm gonna get pepto to give to him!
Well anyways I better get ready to face my day. Will probably write more later!

Monday in the Life....

Goodmorning out there in cyberspace! Well what a morning I was awakened by my dear hubby this morning informing me that the cat had been sick, only to get up and find the real culprit was the dog with diaherrea! Yucky, Yucky, Yuk! So I mopped floors and he scrubbed carpets and now we're just watching hoping he doesn't get sick again!
Today is the first day of Nelsonville Youth Camp, in Nelsonville, OH! I'm excited for this week because I feel like I need a spiritual refreshing.
Yesterday we went to Royalton, OH to preach for them and they want us to come back again this Sunday so that's cool. It's a nice little church with potential in the community!

A beautiful Sunday morning!

It's a beautiful Sunday morning and Father's Day to boot! I want to wish my Father a wonderful and happy Fathers day! I love him dearly!
Today hubby and I are going to Royalton, Ohio to preach, praying that God will bless the people there and help Bud as he preaches and us as we sing for them. I'm excited I like going to meet new people and visiting different churches (however I also enjoy coming home to comfort of our own church which we love!). Since my Dear Hubby is a pastor/preacher we get called occasionally for a preaching service or even for singing.
Well it's going to be a long day and I need to go get ready to go. Missing Kosar this morning since he's staying with Aunt Kimmy! Feels strange not to be taking him out or feeding him or having him on my heels since he's my buddy, but we'll have him back tonight!
Well I hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday and all you dads out there have a wonderful Father's Day!

It's another Saturday in the Life....

Wow what a to do list for today, laundry, cooking, cleaning, and blogging of course! I plan to start taking pictures of the recipes I fix to post on here! I love cooking.
I've been reading so much about blogging the past day or so and want to give it a whirl! Sounds like it could be interesting, and it's nice to have a place to write stuff that happens!
Tomorrow Bud will be preaching at a church in Royalton, OH, of course I'll be there too but he'll be doing the preaching and we'll probably do a little singing. Never been to this church before and I'm excited!
My two furry children Kosar and Bandit are at it again fighting, some of their fights are just funny, when Bandit (cat) comes bouncing across the floor on both hind legs claws out to attack an unsuspecting Kosar (dog) you just have to laugh! It's good comic relief!
So how do we feel about baking dog treats?? I found some pretty neat recipes, and when you're on a budget and have to work with what you have on hand it's great to search for recipes that use what you have on hand such as peanut butter (dogs love) flour, milk, oatmeal and baking powder! I think I'll give it whirl hopefully Kosar will love the change! Those dog treats are expensive sometimes!

Crazy times

So yesterday I was filing papers in my new filing cabinent and ran across the renewal notice for the license on my car, here I've been driving on expired tags for 3 weeks! Ugh now for the late fee on getting the plates renewed!
Yesterday just didn't turn out to be a very good day, paying bills always gets me all uptight and stressed and then all my piano lesson students cancelled on me! Out of 11 students I didn't have one lesson this week! Hopefully next week will be better!
Today will be laundry day and I think I may tear into gettting a Junior church theme going! Really wanting to get back into children's ministry had so much fun doing it and our church needs a junior church. Gotta figure out which theme to use and what I need to do that theme as far as decor and such. It's always fun. Hopefully I can pull it together before school starts up again which really my schedule isn't all that bad!
The puppy is cutting teeth and was having issues the last couple nights he wants to sleep right on Bud's pillow and there just isn't room and then he licks and licks and licks at you and keeps you awake so everytime he tried we shoved him back to the foot of the bed last night!
Tonight was fun went and played BINGO with the in-laws we bring prizes of household items such as dish soap, toilet paper, cookies, paper towels, soap and shampoo and conditioner, decor items and such. It's a fun time to get together we all pitch in for the meal tonight was cookout style we had hamburgers and hot dogs and potato salad and chips and watermelon and cookies, and so many other things!

Another Day in the Life

Today has been kind of laid back! It's been great though because we're on break from school right now and so enjoying it.
I got out and played in the dirt for awhile and planted some flowers like I've been wanting to and petted Mango the cat who adopted us! LOL He's really pretty but if he doesn't like something you do he'll bite you! I had to smack him a few times (just a light smack nothing that would hurt) to get him to stop. Finally I just put him down.
Life has been pretty hectic up till this weekend, between school and teaching piano I stay quite busy! This week was our finals and we had some pretty big ones we were worried about but it seems we've passed with flying colors at least that's what we hope!
We've also started back on our weight watchers diet hoping to shed some very much unwanted pounds! I'm hoping to find some great new recipes to try that are low in points values and yet filling! Yesterday we had huge salads for lunch but they didn't last very long, today we had BBQ Pork sandwiches and fruit.
