Monday Musings

What an eventful, blessed weekend we had! 

It started Saturday morning watching our daughter play basketball - a sport neither Burt nor I know too much about.  I played in 5th grade just like Tori is doing, but it wasn't pretty.  I remember getting called for traveling and the only time I made any baskets was when I got fouled and got to shoot freethrows.  My coach was very positive and overall it was a good experience, but I realized that basketball wasn't in my future. :)  It is amazing watching your child learn a new skill!  The first game she was really timid and almost looked scared to get the ball, but in the second game she made 2 baskets and got some rebounds also!  Burt & I were so proud of her!  We celebrated by going to Culvers for lunch (my absolute favorite fast food place) and stopped at Wal-mart to pick up the fixings for a huge batch of creamy potato soup.

Saturday afternoon Burt had 2 roasters full of soup made in about 2 hours!  That man is an amazing cook and I am so blessed to have him!!  He was diagnosed with diabetes in June and he is doing wonderful at adapting recipes to make them "diabetes-friendly".  If anyone would like his recipe I will gladly share it.  Everytime he has made it, we have had guests ask to take some home and want the recipe so it's not just me praising my hubby. :)

Sunday brought Sunday School and worship followed by our annual meeting and potluck.  The annual meeting was completely painless this year!  What a relief!  It's so stressful when you're talking about money with a large group of people as there are always going to be differences of opinion.  There were some questions and comments raised, but nothing earth shattering and the budget passed without conflict.  Everyone enjoyed Burt's soup during the potluck and kept telling me how good it was.  I took great joy in referring them to my husband (their pastor) for the soup as I had nothing to do with it.  A lot of them were pleaseantly surprised to find out how great a cook he is.

After taking the kids to their 4-H meeting, I settled in for an afternoon of NFL football which was interrupted briefly to pick the kids up and then go pick up one friend for the afternoon and then go pick up another friend for the afternoon. :)  So, with each child having a friend over and playing in other areas of the house, Burt & I were able to enjoy the rest of the Packer-Bear game and what a game it was!!!  My favorite play of the game (and maybe the whole season) was the interception by B.J. Raji and his 18 yard touchdown run.  Raji interception and TD  I especially enjoyed his TD dance!  So the Packers will face the Steelers in the Superbowl in 2 weeks!  What really impressed me though was the attitude of the whole Packers team after their win.  Aaron Rodgers gave all the credit to the defense for the win in an interview after the game.  How many quarterbacks would do that?  He is one classy guy and the Pack is one classy team. 

Well, that's my weekend in a nutshell.  How was yours?  Tonight I am looking forward to another webcast by Lysa Terkeurst about her Made to Crave book.  She is an amazing Jesus girl with an amazing message everyone needs to hear!  (I think I said that before, but it's worth saying again)

Happy Monday Everyone!
