Wednesday, Thursday and Friday were a whole lot of cleaning, washing, taking breaks to watch a show with my girls from time to time. Keeping track of the eagle and watching to see if the eggs had hatched yet or not.
My Prince and the Young Prince went to work each day. The girls and I hung out at the house.
Wednesday night we went to church. My Wednesday night group went well. I love those ladies and I love studying the Bible and learning and growing and just "doing life" with them. It has been an boost in many ways to my spiritual life. The times in both of my groups are priceless.
Thursday night, we met with some friends for dinner at my new favorite local restaurant. We used to go to church with these friends and get to see them all the time. Now we rarely get to spend quality time with them. Both of our families are very busy, and so we wanted to intentionally schedule some time during our break with them. We enjoyed our dinner with them. My sweet friend brought me a birthday present. Her Mom and Dad also came to eat at the restaurant, and her mom brought me a birthday card and a little note pad as well. So sweet! We love their family, and we are so glad that it worked out for us to get together even if for just a little while.
The Youngest Princess had asked if her friend could come and spend the night. So we made plans for that. I had the Youngest Princess take a shower
Friday night, we went to the church for the youth New Year's Eve Eve celebration. The Youngest Princess had asked if her friend could come and spend the night. So we made plans for that. I had the Youngest Princess take a shower, before we left, and while she was taking her shower, I read our chapter to her, because I knew we would be in late that night, and her friend would be here. We finished Anne of Avonlea on Thursday night, so we read the first chapter of Anne of the Island.
I made two cherry cheesecakes to take, and as we were heading out the door, I was trying to juggle the cheesecakes and put on my jacket, and one of the cheesecakes slipped and landed top down on the floor. GRRRR! So we cleaned up the cheesecake mess and headed out the door with only one cheesecake, and some cookies that My Prince had baked.
At the church the teens (and a few adventurous adults) played laser tag. I wanted to play, but I had a really bad headache, so I knew I had better not play and make it even worse. I think the kids had a great time. I took my Dutch Blitz cards and a friend and I helped with the food and then played some Dutch Blitz. Several of the kids played with us as they got out of the laser tag games. It was fun. When it got close to 11:00, we started getting everything all cleaned up.
We came home and got everyone settled and ready to go to bed. I was very glad to go to bed, and hopefully get rid of my headache. I snuggled under my new down throw that My Prince bought me for my birthday and went to sleep.
Oh, and I almost forgot! If you want to watch the eagles with us (spoiler alert, one of the eggs hatched overnight, and there is now a baby eaglet to watch), go to www.swfleaglecam.com. It is really cool to watch. And the little bobble headed baby eagle is adorable!
Until I blog again...
