i change by not changing at all

i hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. our was...interesting. we had an awesome pizza night at our casa on the veranda. Saturday the hubby and i went out and had a great time. around 3:30 in the morning we woke up to the sound of rushing water. the water heater for the spare bath is in the attic, and it overflowed. we got the flood stopped in time to watch the ceiling collapse into the bathroom. it made for very little sleep. the good news is very little damage was really done, and now we can gut the bathroom and redo it as we choose. the other good news is that my wonderful hubby was still home. he left for Dallas this morning. the meeting at church on Sunday ended something like this: my hubby stands and says "in light of this morning's decisions i am tendering my resignation effective immediately." my husband has been leading music at the church for about 3 years now. it has been a constant battle. we are now on the search for a new church home. we can see God's work and see where he has brought us from, now we are praying that we can see where He is sending us next. now for picture time.

this is the adorable package we got from bex. well it would have been, but her heiness snatched one of the princess books as i was taking the picture. isn't the robe adorable. it has little frog slippers that go with it.

yeah, that's her showing off her pretty princess book.


did i mention she loves the princess books? in case you couldn't tell from the look on her face.

this is the view from my backdoor. that is the new white fence that enclosed what we now refer to as "the veranda".
the shade covers this side up so it isn't a very good pic. i will try to take a better one soon.
that is our mesclun mix growing in our indoor garden. it is way yummy.
those are the beans that we are growing aren't they pretty.

well, this evening i am going to see Maya Angelou with pattylicious. my mom is here keeping us company "in case i pop". i am so ready to meet this little guy. at most we have 2 weeks, but the doctor is really hoping i pop sooner than later. i need to go water my plants, so more later.

Oh no! I'm glad no one was hurt and little damage was done. Happy you are doing so well. Best to you!

PS - I don't know what's going on at your church but we are stuggling with whether to stay or to go at ours too. It's a hard decisions. Glad you feel at peace.

I'm so glad that the Princess books were such a hit! :-) Glad to hear that nothing has changed with the little guy.
