Never thought of party problems

Ally ally ally out come free!

Surprise it's me!

Goodness what a roll.

On Wednesday I had the cakes to make for both adoption day and the birthday. No eggs!
So knowing that dash had already brought in the one egg from the day before I went out to see if there may be a few I could use with some powdered egg white. SEVEN! plus the one I had = 4 regular eggs!
Now Dash either must have missed some or at least one...and all 6 birds laid.
All I have need of :)

Dash is doing better today. He turned 9 yesterday and was so sweet about his disappointments. We opened his gifts in the morning and the appreciation that boy spoke was astonishing more than once. So dear a child he is. Sissy gave him a little guy on a magnetic skate board and a toy ramp for it to play on.
He received a Avitar horse and the lead character with the wolf type creatures. 
Great Movie!

His asthma along with a cold and an allergy shot hit him all at once and I had to bring him home from school.  Being such an active soul we had a hard time keeping him slowed, his peak flow meter (a testing devise) hit 140 and I almost began to panic. We were able to avert the going to ER. A mother of one of the guest even called the next day. Really touched me that she cared so, she was on the phone when I tested and heard the panic tone I was trying to hide in my voice.
From one extreme to another...
We got a call at 7 p.m. last night from a father of another kid.
Wanting to know what the deal was about the party...
These folks never confirmed, I called the teacher of the boys on Friday because I had n way to call his parents. Did all I thought I could to let him know. Never met these folks.
He drove up to the business and gave his son money and pulled away. 
The child had NO WAY TO CONTACT him or his mother.
apparently divorced
The father said that his wife is over protective and he is not, "well I told him I can understand that".
Thinking something so strongly that I do not figure I need to even say it ")
This a lesson that could of been so much worse, Steve too was peeved and we both just could not imagine such negligence.
That kid was at the place of business from 4-7 p.m.!
I guess he never approached an employee (who could of called us).
This is something we did not even think could of been done.

The kid is 8 yrs old and was just dropped off at a curb.
I was up most the night with bad dreams and just almost in tears for the little guy.
I know who he is from my service work in the classroom.
I think if I would of just drove over there to check on all things. Knowing however it is not my error. Still a kid suffered and a tender heart like me is just tore up over it.
Last night Dove held my thumb just like when she was an infant on that train ride home from Russia.
We watched an old star trek show and it had about a planet of people who could have no children.  Really touched the kids. WOW are they endeared to us today. I love holding them because I know all to well this is a flash in time to treasure. I held Dash in my arms at bed time he fell asleep after the show. Came over for a hug and just relaxed himself into my lap and arms. Steve was calling to brush teeth and I just let him sleep there.
I could feel the pour of Love that flame of fire that roars through the soul. I felt it flow through to each of them as I held them. As when the whole of the universe stops for the moment and nothing else exists.
 It was so lovely and peaceful for all of us.

Yesterdays harvest.
Picked a whole bowl full of peas (once hulled)
Broccoli and turnips too, Stir fry tonight.
I got the dahlias in the new flower bed.

 This week I created a bit of art work for a physician as a thank you.
A Gods Eye
Sewed a top for Dove but the little man has the camera making movies all yesterday and this morning. It keeps his busy little mind occupied and his recovering busy body on the slow.
I'll try to do some posts over
here at A Place to Create
Yesterday I attended the American Sewers Guild and renewed my membership.
It was nice to have the motivation to sew.
Seeing my sister is nice. She is not feeling well of now and could use your prayers joined with ours.
I have been giving this some real good use of late.

Today it is raining again and the water tank full up to the brim!
So Steve just put the kiddie pool over there.
Our neighbor behind us removed the beautiful big tree. We are as a lost soul with it gone. We will miss the shade of it terribly came the summer. They have removed almost all of the 10 or so trees in the yard. We are just appalled and grieved too, at the loss of such good life.
My table is still stacked with medical forms for all of the specialist for Dove.
All of the 2009 tax stuff too.
Every moment is so busy right now. Being sick for the 7 weeks at the start of the year really set me back and each day I get a little closet to having my head above water.

Steve's mom had a cataract surgery and all went well.
Steve had an MRI and we have yet to get the results.

Dove goes to the ENT who specializes in pediatric sleep apnea and we will know more there. She may need her tonsils out soon. It that is the solve we do not know as of yet.
Dash and are undergoing allergy injections twice a week as health permits.
Well I have an invitation from my son to have a movie time.
He is making himself some eggs so mom time gotta get over to the stove.

Good day to all of you.
Many more details of provision and interventions.
Got to run

'A woman's heart should be so hidden in Christ
That a man should have to seek Him first to find her.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting 'I'm clean living,'
I'm whispering 'I was lost, Now I'm found and forgiven.'

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak and need His strength to carry on.

When I say.. 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed and need God to clean my mess.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible, but God believes I am worth it.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain...
I have my share of heartaches, so I call upon His name.

When I say... 'I am a Christian' I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Words have power. Here are a few of my favorite sayings.

  • A warm cup of tea is like a cuddle with a friend.
  • The North American Indians have a more eloquent word for ‘friend’ than we do in English. In their language, the word for friend literally means, “the one who carries my sorrows on his back.”
  • Return with Honor
  • The sage anticipates things that are difficult while they are easy, and does things that would become great while they are small. All difficult things in the world are sure to arise from a previous state in which they were easy, and all great things from one in which they were small. Therefore the sage, while he never does what is great, is able on that account to accomplish the greatest things."
  • “Live so that when your children hear these words they think of you… Fairness Caring Integrity Honesty Love Trust.”
  • "O Lord help my words to be gracious and tender today, for tomarrow I may have to eat them."
  • "No man has ever been shot while doing the dishes"

Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
"For the LORD your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song."
