What a Difference a Day Makes

So yesterday was sunny and a little cloudy. It was perfect for working in my garden.  I love this weather. It feels like the weather when we would go camping up in the High Sierras.  
Here is how the day looked yesterday...
Yes your right. These are not my work clothes. I love the colors in this shirt. They match the Van Gogh I have at the top of my blog.
Anyway, here is how the weather looked yesterday before leaving for church. (above)&(below)
A little cloudy.
You can see it is breezy.
So I wake up this morning to the sound of a HAIL STORM.  Yes, a hail storm. It was raining and then came the hail. I was yelling NO NO NO. Because although I love a good hail storm, I had just planted my baby veggies yesterday. I was scared that they would be pounded and broken.

I really do love this weather but I didn't want my veggies to get broken. Alas they did not. They were stronger than I had imagined. So all is right with the world. I won't have to replant anything. 
On the topic of getting in shape. I skipped my exercise DVD for a few days. I figured that lifting and carrying big bags of garden soil was a workout and then planting the garden. I weighed myself and I have lost 3 pounds so far. I was not so good this weekend. I did eat some chinese food and then after church Saturday night, my sister Susan, Peanut and I went to have some frozen yogurt.
Susan and I were reminiscing about when we were little and we lived with my grandfather. My mom had left my father. Susan was 7 years old and I was 4 years old. We moved in with my grandpa and grandma Jane. We all went into Los Angeles every Sunday morning and spent the entire day at church. In the evening we would leave and always go to 31 flavors for an ice cream cone. I always got black licorice ice cream and Susan would get french vanilla. Yum !!!
So last night we went to Nubi and got frozen yogurt. It was our first time there. It was so delicious. We got Red Velvet cake, and other flavors.
Today Sunday is a good day to get back on track. It is hailing again outside so I think this is an indoor day. Peanut is still in her nightgown and watching a movie.
I will dance in the day, not just the dark!!!
America's Next Top Model NOT !!!!!
Have a great day. Stay warm.
Psalm 32:8-9,  The Lord says, "I will guide you along the best pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you. Do not be like a senseless horse or mule that needs a bit and bridle to keep it under control."

  1. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be tranformed by the renewing of your mind. Romans 12:2
    Like they said in church last night. I am what I am. It is what it is. A good lesson on being happy with ourselves and the way God has made us.
    Wow, we had hail too!! I think you had more. I was out walking and had to take cover. hahaha
    Crazy weather. Glad your veggies are ok. So let's get cozy today. Good day to watch movies.
    Love ya
