Sunday, April 25, 2010

No time for a picture today. You'll have to follow the link on Monday's entry to understand why.

One guess as to where I am today.

Tuesday, April 27, 2010

Friends brought yummy, healthy food. Such a blessing!

And "Mimi" (my mom) was here today to help. The kids got to spend some time outdoors. Poor mom had to keep chasing the little ones down to keep them from going around to the front of the house and down to the street. Boy, one of these days, we are ALL going to rest so much easier--because there WILL be a fence.

We had a family favorite comfort food for breakfast today. Baked Oatmeal. I intended to post the recipe, but didn't get around to it. Stay tuned. I'm thinking next Wednesday...

I dropped the kids off for their last day of Academy. (Can I get an Amen?) They were so excited today because there would be pizza parties and field day activities and afterwards they would be surprised with going to stay with some friends. (We didn't disclose all the information to them. We know better!) Paul and I are headed out-of-town to Eureka Springs for a couple of nights!!

This was my perch for most of the day. Nothing but quiet.

Saturday, May 1, 2010

It's our last day in Eureka. Paul was done with his conference by noon (yes, it was a working weekend for him), so we headed toward the historic district for some lunch. We caught the tail end of their "Artrageous Parade" and also ate a couple of the most fabulous burgers in all the world! Mine was the "Avocado Pepper Jack Burger," on which there was at least half of an avocado! Mouth-watering doesn't begin to describe it!! If that doesn't put some color back in my cheeks, I truly don't know what will!

After we browsed a few shops, we drove over to
Quigley's Castle. The whole idea of it sounded intriguing to me. I'll have to post separately about it, because I took too many pictures to share here. It was amazing.

Another long week. I keep getting behind in reading everybody else's posts. Thank you, Sara, for hosting...and for keeping the links up so I can eventually get around to every one!

  1. Well.... the last time I drank that much water at one time was for my ultrasound when I was pregnant so that is my guess... What a great week. Hope next one is good too and I am looking forward to the baked oatmeal recipe!

  2. I went back and read about what you've been through recently. I couldn't believe that you were still blogging like usual. I can't imagine the pain of your loss. The weakness, however, reminds me of when our first was born and I didn't know if I'd make it. Jesus arms were very real then.
    May you experience healing and abundant grace this week.

  3. Oooohhhh baked oatmeal?! I've never heard of it (call me lame if you must:) Glad your little man is okay!

    Sounds like you had a great time on your get-away!

    Hope this week is good too! (Ya know, minus the choking!)

  4. Went back and ready about your ordeal and praying for you and your family and knowing that you are lifted up in God's hand.

    That baked oatmeal sounds so very yummy...looking forward to the recipe..we are a oatmeal loving family! So glad you were able for a short get away...that bed looks glorious!

    Hoping you have an uneventful week and get your strenth back (I went through an emergency hysterectomy a year and a half ago so I know how you are feeling)...hang in there.

  5. Praying for you as you lean on God's everlasting arms!

  6. oh Lori, I am so sorry for your loss and what you have been through. But seeing you lean on your Father's strong arms is so inspiring. He is so good.

    Praying for you and sending a ((hug)) your way.

  7. Wow you have been through so much lately. I am so sorry for your loss. I have been there my friend. It is very tough.
    So glad you got time away to rest and just have some quiet time.

  8. You know I'm praying for you!

    We LOVE baked oatmeal here. So yummy!

    So glad you were able to get away and have some quiet time with Paul. And on a silly note, I know you want some color back in your cheeks, but let's not go to the extreme of the picture! :)
    Have a super week!!

  9. I went back to read your other post & totally forgot to come back here. I'm praying for peace for you & your family.

    One of my favorite oatmeal recipes is a crockpot one - made with pumpkin. It's like eating pumpkin pie - yum!

  10. Lori, I am so, so sorry! I pray that you continue to feel physically, emotionally, and spiritually stronger each day.
