it's a quiet saturday evening, here in our little town ... i'm sitting in leo's big recliner, working on the laptop ... it's so nice to look outside and see the free flowing water - rather than a frozen river - and to anticipate new buds appearing on the bushes and trees - soon ... there are some buds sprouting in the flower garden ... i am always happy to see GREEN ... my favourite colour!
leo's doctors appt. went so very well on tuesday ... again, like the others, this doctor was kind and friendly ... he did go one step further than our other doctors - he suggested that maybe leo might like to see a neurosurgeon again ... leo doesn't think it'll help, but is ok with the idea ... we'll see what develops as we continue to trust God in ALL things ... i love the Lord so much ... :o)
it was a busy week ... i took our car in for an annual check up on thursday ... it was a good 50 minute drive from our place (everything is far, 'cause we live in a little town!) ... unfortunately, i came home with a rental ... :o( ... our car needed some repairs that took time ... i was sort of expecting something ... not because the car was acting up, but because we did some extra giving (by faith), and you know that old saying about no good deed going unpunished ... however - our joy of giving wasn't taken away by something unpleasant happening right after, and we even had to smile because the amount of the car repair was exactly the same as the amount that we had given!!! well there was a 42 cent difference - but what are the odds? the timing of it all was suspect! this has happened to us a number of times, in different areas of our life ... ever happen to you too?
last night we had some company ... they came bearing fish!!! pickerel ... yum ... my favourite ... leo used to catch me a fresh panful whenever i wanted it ... those were our "good cottage years" ... then his health began declining - and the fishing became less and less ... so whenever someone thinks to bring me fish - i am so so thankful ...
just thought i'd chitchat a bit ... and also wish you guys a most blessed sunday .... and week to come!!!

It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want - oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so! ~Mark Twain
