Off I Go...

Well, today's the day. I'm off to the big city to see a heart doctor (actually he's a professor!) and hoping, hoping, praying, praying for wisdom for him as he evaluates and treats my problem. I don't really know what to expect today, and must admit I'm a little scared. I also find it tricky navigating city roads after living here in our little town for the last 8 1/2 years! If you find a moment to pray for me today, I would so appreciate it.

Big thanks to my sweet friend Petrina for helping me out with the children while I am gone. I'll be back tomorrow morning, but I could NOT have done this trip without her!

Birthday plans are well under way for this weekend / early next week. Saraya is SOOOO excited to be turning 8! I don't think Stuart is quite as excited about turning 32. ;) It gets like that as you get older, doesn't it?

We've managed to fit in quite a lot this week. Saraya has been busy with her contract sheet - and praise God, it's working much better! She has 2 activities left to do tomorrow. I'm really proud of her. The kids had haircuts yesterday morning. And the kittens had their operations - they are in recovery today, feeling very sore and sorry for themselves. We're looking forward to them feeling better. We also found a house we really love.... but more about that later.

I'll leave you with some photos from our week this week. Hope everyone has a blessed Thursday. :)

Both Saraya and Elijah sewed little pouches to keep their money in.

We got our boxes packed and sent off for the Operation Christmas Child program.

And Saraya's been reading. You know, a LOT. These 5 books were chewed through just 6 days. Then she was crying because she didn't have anything to read!! We found a book for that night, but were off to the library again the following day and managed to find "Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator" and some more Famous Five books. Boy oh boy does she love to read!

Dear Saminda,
You will be in my thoughts and prayers today. May God bring you safely back to your lovely family .. I too hate driving in city traffic, much prefer my winding country road that the city people drive at 50 kms on! Praying that the information you receive is helpful and not confusing.
You know I do feel for you when you shared about having to give up chocolate, coffee and wine. There are some very nice 'mocktails' in my new cook book - maybe at Christmas when friends are enjoying a glass of wine you could have one of these drinks in a nice wine glass. Let me now if you need any recipes for them! Just a thought!

Hope your appointment went well. Did you have to go to TPCH? I have some friends who are echo techs who work there. If you did they have some wonderful doctors there.
Beautiful purses. Such great sewing.
And lovely seeing Saraya's reading. LL loves Charlie & the Glass Elevator.
