Freida, I editted my "do ray mi post"...I somehow thought it was Dar who posted the "deer in snow" avatar...now I see it was you! Good Sunday morning! 46 degrees...doesn't look like we will make it to 49, but the computer says our high will be 47...we'll take it! I helped Lindsey get off to church, Den went to town to get rafter-building supplies and I just had some quiet/devotion time by myself. Beef round steak and potatoes with cream of mushroom soup in the oven; will think of something else to go with it. Rock, I learned a new word today...had to look up duxelle...sounds good as I love mushrooms and shallots! I, like you, would try to ignore the duck gizzards, though I hope you find your extra meds...things like that can be very frustrating. Freida, as I was reading my devotional book and reading aloud the corresponding verses in my Bible...a thought came over me. Would you let me, in a sort of long-distance way, be your voice? I will start a thread over on the worship board...if you would like (otherwise, just tell me "no thanks") you can give me some scripture that you would like to "hear" and I will pledge to read it out loud each day. I know you won't hear it with your own ears, but maybe somehow my voice will find its way into your heart/mind/soul? We can be sort of "penpals", although I'm sure there is probably another word that would fit better I enjoy reading out loud; as a matter of fact, it helps me to stay focused as my mind tends to wander whenever I try to read the Bible or pray. You can think about it and let me know...it won't hurt my feelings if you say no. I'd better get the rest of dinner organized...it's one thing I can do in the comfort of my own home and not worry about feeling like getting "dressed for town" and being "social."
