Freedom in this country and freedom in Christ!
By 7 p.m. my back, neck and shoulders were hurting and I was so exhausted! I didn't even turn on my tv once I laid down.
By 8:15 p.m. I fell asleep! I was bummed at myself for not staying up and at least lighting sparklers that I've had sitting in a drawer since New years eve! We can kinda see some fireworks from our backyard, but I totally did not feel well.
Friday and saturday....I did some "summer" cleaning...one, sorting papers for recycle and others to the "need to shred" bag! Also, made some oatmeal chocolate chip walnut cookies for the first time! They came out yummy! [i unfortuntaly spaced to take pics, but will next time, because everyone loved them!] I've eaten four so far. Most of them, I gave away to friends. While browsing others reviews on Allrecipes.com, I learned that adding baking powder, or baking powder in general, helps the cookies to rise and not turn out flat and crispy! Wow! I had no idea!
Sunday was the best day of the 4-day weekend. I got to go to church with paco. We had such a good time. I got to hear other's testimonies, which two of them struck me. It was like God knew what I needed to hear. One of them made me teary eyed. I don't remember exactly what was said, but I believe it was divinely planned in His grand scheme of things.
We were laughing, ok, mostly I was laughing at the situation, while we were walking back to my house from the bus stop! Thanks to Paco for maintaining such a positive attitude in such an unfavorable circumstance, especially for the first time we've gone to church together in years.
It was a blessed weekend indeed.
Oh! and I watched Dirty Dancing on Lifetime! a total fave!
