Time just keeps ticking along.  I have so many good intentions, but I just don't have enough time to get all the things that I want to do done...  I have been absent from the blog for a couple of weeks.  In that time, I managed to hurt my leg while playing tennis.  The doctor said that I strained, sprained or slightly tore my calf muscle/tendon.  All I know is there was a lot of pain associated with it.  I couldn't bear weight on that leg very much the day that I did it.  I am now about 3 days out and my leg is feeling much better---thankfully!  I am so ready to get back out on the tennis court, but I know that if I return too soon, I run a much higher chance of re-injuring it...  So I will try to catch up on my blog today to distract my mind from tennis.

Hope your day is going well.

A good week

This has been a good week.  I managed to wog (walk/jog) 8 miles this week....still catching up from when I was sick a couple of weeks ago.  I tried new recipes, crafted, read my Bible, started a new Bible study (Beth Moore's James study) with friends, and I accompanied another friend to Richmond for a dental appointment at Medical College of VA.

It was a wonderful trip.  Girl time talking in the car for several hours there and back was awesome.  And the LORD gave us some great surprises along the way.  The most memorable are the ones at Short Pump Town Center.  It is a huge mall!  My friend had never been there, so she just kept saying, "I can't believe how big this place is."  But we were headed there just for dinner before our trip home.  The restaurant: Maggiano's Little Italy.  I had read online that they didn't have a gluten free menu, but the chef would come out to your table and speak with you about what he could make gluten free for you.  Since my friend and I both have gluten problems, this seemed like a great thing to try.  We also had her 8 yr old little girl (the one with the actual dental appt) with us.  So the trip to the mall started with us getting a great parking spot (first space in the row) in this huge, packed parking lot.  Then we went in, talked to the chef and got a great meal.  But the surprise came in when we both got another helping of our meal choice to go.  And I had gotten a $10 off coupon online before we went.  So...we got a kid's meal and 4 adult meals (2 we ate there and 2 to go) for just under $23!!!  Can you imagine?  And it was so yummy!!!  My friend's daughter had prayed before we left that we would get surprises from the LORD.  And, boy, did HE surprise us!!!

I have seen the goodness of the LORD this week!!!  How about you?  Remember to watch for what HE is doing in your life!
