Monday night was my monthly writers group meeting, which was as fun and informative as always.
On Tuesday, I got a good workout at the gym. (Time to attach that tummy and those thighs...and that growing double chin, while I'm at it!) ;)
Wednesday I got to go out to breakfast with my best friend since childhood. She lives in Arizona now, so seeing her is always a special treat. We talked and laughed and ate yummy French toast and talked some more. As always, the visit felt much too short, but it was such a joy to get to catch up. I miss her already.
That night, on the way to pick up Oldest Gal from Youth Group, Middle Gal, Little Gal and I saw a FULL rainbow with another one above it. It was so beautiful! I couldn't get the full arc on film once we'd parked, but here's part of it:
Thursday was another nice workout...working off the aforementioned French toast splurge. ;) It's been so nice to get back to my Skinny Jeans program again. :)
And today I got to visit with another dear friend who has three daughters of her own. Our six girls always have so much fun together. :)
On my way home, I stopped at my P.O. Box for the first time in several weeks and found a few lovely goodies waiting for me from my online pals Treesa and Karina. Thank you so much, girls! Another "Fan Mail Friday" post will be up soon. :)
To top it all off, the weather has been lovely and cool this entire week. The girls and I have been pretending we live on the coast (our favorite place to visit). Today, they all grabbed their pink parasols and spent a good hour stomping in the puddles. Eventually, their play evolved into an elaborate game in which they were three orphans (with almost spot-on British accents, thanks to all those nights listening to Focus on the Family Radio Theatre) searching for shelter in a storm.
The exciting thing is, the week's not over yet! :D Tomorrow morning, Hubby and I will drop the girls off with my parents and head down to Mount Hermon for a concert by Fernando Ortega. :D Fernando has been one of my favorite Christian artists since I was in college, and this is the first time I'll get to hear him perform in person. I'm so excited!! :D
And, of course, we'll have to stop at the Fairfield mall on the way down to check out the Disney Store. ;)
We've decided this is our early anniversary celebration since Hubby won't have time off on our actual anniversary (the 29th of this month). We'll be celebrating fourteen years of marriage. Crazy! Where does the time go?
I'll be back next week to tell you all about my trip. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! :)
