Hi Ho, Hi Ho!

It's a good thing I have recovered well, since my Chiropractic treatment, or I would not have been able to do all I was scheduled to do.  I would have had to cancel and rest, instead.

Last evening, I felt improved.  Once again, as I got comfy in bed to sleep, I began to cough.  Only for a short time, though.  I believe being in a laying down position makes it difficult for me to breathe without coughing, still. 

In any case, it didn't take long before my body adjusted and I was off in never-never land.  Ahhh...  I slept soundly, until my alarm went off.  Praise God!  Thank You, Jesus!

Awaking this morning, I didn't really want to get up.  In fact, I tried resting in, but it only lasted a few moments, until I felt guilty enough to get myself up and running.

Once up and about, I got myself organized for work.  Since I had been so sickly, I hadn't really done much work, as of late.  Today was different.  In fact, I spent almost all day on the computer, working and making calls.

See!  I am feeling improved!  If I wasn't, I wouldn't have been able to work as I did, today.

Did this mean I had a lot of energy?  Not really.  In fact, several times throughout the day, I felt like I wanted to have a nap, but just couldn't manage the time to do it.

If you read yesterday's entry, you'll know that I had done some phone contacting for Pastor B, of Community Bible Church.  The reason was, because he needed to know how many people would be in attendance this evening for the pizza/movie night.

Late in the afternoon, I left home and did some shopping before picking up two (2) of my grandsons, N & J.  Together, we made our way across town to check on my house.  Afterwards, we headed over to pick up another grandson, S.  My grandson Z was with a friend, so he wasn't home at the time, but he met us later. 

Before arriving at the meeting location, we drove over to where a friend of mine E, had just moved to.  E joined us for the pizza/movie night!  So did my friend J, who works at the cemetary.

Some of us contributed to providing the meal for everyone and once Pastor arrived with the pizza, our small crowd of about about 25, prayed as Pastor said grace.  As we ate together, we watched Fantastic Mr. Fox.

That is, most of us watched the flick.  My grandson N, who is 14, fell asleep after eating and missed almost the whole movie!  To be honest, there were times when I would look over at him, see him dozing and wish I could join him!  But, I didn't.

Personally, I hadn't heard of the film, but it turned out to be a pretty good movie, all in all.  At the end, Pastor B reminded everyone that we were supposed to have made mental notes about incidents that were both good and bad in the movie and questioned our group in this regard.

I believe a good time was had by all.

After returning my grandsons to their respective homes, I stopped to do some grocery shopping.  Feeling totally whipped by the time I arrived home, I realized I still had to write this entry!

So, here I am.  Totally exhausted.  That's okay.  God blessed me, today.  Not just with the health and energy to accomplish everything I needed to do, but mostly by allowing me to spend quality time with four (4) of my grandchildren.

Thank You, Lord.

The last thing I have to say is:  Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to bed, I go!


Until next time...
