Jesus died for our sins
I lucked out today. I went to the compose pile to get some dirt. I sifted about 50 gal of the VERY nice soil and just as I got into the truck the rain came. I will use the soil for the flower beds. That actually was work.
I dropped off a hot chocolate for our birthday boy, Liam. He claims he is 5 so will go with that. By biking the hot chocolate I got my bike ride in for the day.
After the compose pile I went to REI to get a dutch oven. I got a camping one and am not sure I can use it in the oven. I think I will as I don't want to have 2, one for in the house and one for camping.
I bought 10 red roses and placed them for Gail at Resurrection. I took out all the stakes that held the cover which protected the new grass. I think I may go out tomorrow and do a little work with the sod etc. There were many people out there, I would say maybe a couple of dozen.
I think I have all that I need for Sunday. Well I don't have Gail and I need her most of all but will have to get by without her for now. I of course am talking about her physical presence.
The smell of the rain is so fresh but I forgot to take my white clothes in so now they are wet! We could use much rain and got a tiny bit.
Received the invitation to Abby and Ryan's reception today. It came on a 2 sided card which is nice. The reception is June 5, I do not remember when or where the wedding is. I know it is one of these destination things but can't remember the place.
I am still holding on to my semifast. I am not doing great today but have not eaten anything out of the plan is I am thankful for that. I do think about our Lord more and am much more mindful of the suffering Jesus did for us. It does not give me any idea of the cross but I doubt anything could.
These last few days have been somewhat slow and I am thankful for that. It helps me be more mindful of our Lord when my schedule is not so full.
