we had almost 30 women at Bible study this morning!!!! yay God!!!! we're beginning a lengthy study on all the books of the Bible. i pray that everyone sticks it out & we have a turnout like that every month!!!! it's gonna take about 4+ years to do this study!!!! wow!!!
one thing we did that was really neat was we went around the room & each lady told who her favorite Bible character was. it was an interesting way to get to know people better. the leaders are going to have a question like that each time - i think that's a great idea!!
after Bible study i met suzanne for lunch at jason's deli. they've made my favorite sandwich a "seasonal sandwich" so it's not on the menu right now. and no amount of coaxing would convince them to make one for me today!!! well, we had a nice lunch anyways & then she took off for lumberton. i'm heading there tomorrow with grandma for my niece's baby shower. i made her gift, but i can't show it yet because i want it to be a surprise. after the shower suzanne's heading back to dallas. i wish we both could have had the whole month off together. she worked at the movie theater so i didn't get to see her too much. i miss her already!!
after lunch i worked in the front yard ALL. AFTER. NOON. and i'm still not completely done with it but i ran out of daylight. a couple months ago i put down winterizer fertilizer. i think the only good it did was produce an abundance of weeds. (makes for a pretty green winter lawn, but it's not what i want!!!!) i raked & raked & raked & pulled weeds & ended up with this:
she's my new lawn mower!!!!!!!!! with the price of gas, it's hard enough to put all that $$ in my car let alone just burning it up in the lawn mower, so last fall when my mower died i got this "old fashioned" reel mower!!!! IT. IS. SO. COOL!!!!! it's really easy to push, cuts FANTASTICALLY & won't cost me a dime from here on out!!!!! (except to get the blades sharpened every once in awhile) i've already used it quite a few times & i love it! it came with a little grass catcher, but i like letting the clippings fall back to fertilize the grass. i want my thick lush grass back so i can mow it!!!!
it's so much fun, i just might mow other people's grass too!!!
i wasn't a finalist in that "best project of 2011" contest, but that's ok - my projects were winners in my book!!!!
