Wednesday night we went to a potluck in honor of one of our pastors. October is pastor appreciation month at our church. It was great to be able to show our love and support.
It has been two months that we have lived in our new house. I am slowly adjusting to the sounds of the house and the neighborhood. How the light comes through the windows at different seasons and times of day. Where to shop and then how the store is arranged so I can find everything I need. Where I get my gas, etc. Right now, I miss Golden. I miss the small town feel as opposed to living in Lakewood where it is more big city. As Eric told me, "Mom, you have to give it more time." He's right.
Speaking of Eric, he is going for his Eagle Scout award. It has been a bit of a challenge as he has less than two months to get it all done. We are down to the wire. It has me frazzled, but I am mostly letting his Dad manage it. He doesn't need panic stricken Mom on his case. Eek! I will just be waiting in the wings for when he needs me.
Otherwise, I have been busy visiting with friends, going to Bible study, meeting with another woman to pray for our children, etc. Oh, hubby got a new cell phone supplied by the company he works for since he got a promotion. So with the extra money toward our cell phone budget he bought me one of those new android phones. It seems in my old age I hate change, but I am learning this new phone. Maybe I can be a hip Grandma after all. ;-) (BTW the picture above was taken with my new phone. I even emailed to myself so I could post it on my blog.)
