Thursday Thirteen - #37


I have not posted a Thursday Thirteen in months. So, here are some of the things that have gone in my life since then.


  1. My oldest grandson is in his second semester of his Freshman year of college.
  2. I bought myself a new digital camera - Canon s3 IS. I have truly enjoyed it. I am able to sit in the bleachers and make pictures at the games.
  3. Christmas was spent at home this year with our children and grandchildren coming over. We had dinner and opened gifts. Then they all went home - the older grandchildren wanted to see their boyfriend and girlfriend.
  4. We had a quiet time on New Year's Eve. My daughter's two younger boys were here for a week. Papa shot fireworks with them in the cold air. I stayed in the house. The next day, we all target practiced. I actually hit those little targets every time! So be careful when you come to rob my house. :)
  5. My husband has only got to work one day this year on his truck. Pray for his work! It has really slowed down. We are hoping it will pick up as the weather warms up.
  6. My husband had the flu this year. He was in bad shape for about two weeks. But, we think he will be fine now.
  7. I spent last Wednesday in the doctor's office with my 14 year old grandson. Had to pick him up at school and bring him to town to the Dr. He had the stomach virus and was out of school for the entire week.
  8. I was at my Mother's weekend before last for 3 days. Friday is the day I get my hair done at the beautician's, buy my Mother's groceries and go eat with her. Her septic tank went out. We spent Saturday getting it cleaned out. It still didn't work. We found out we could have had Roto-Rooter first and it would have been fine. We had that done on Sunday and the guy they sent out was not a real professional.
  9. I have been reading a 3 book series from John Aubrey Anderson called The Black or White Chronicles. I am almost through the third book. I highly recommend these books if you like fiction mixed with Christianity.
  10. I went to the first soccer games I've been able to attend last night. Two of my daughter's children are on the Varsity teams at school - boys and girls. They played at the same school. The girls beat 2-0, the first time to beat this school. The boys lost 5-2, and they usually beat them. My granddaughter is a captain of her team. The grandson had been sick the week before and didn't get to practice so we thought he would not play. But, he got to play half of both halves. He was excited and almost made a goal, but let an older player (a friend) jump in and make the play. He wishes now he had made the goal.
  11. I am back to birdwatching again. We have had lots of beautiful birds including a yellow-bellied sapsucker. The Blue Jay, Cardinal, Doves, and mocking birds have been in our back yard feeding already.
  12. I've been meaning to buy pansies to plant at my Mother's and also here at my home. But, i have yet to buy them. Guess I've gotten a little lazy!
  13. I woke up this morning not feeling too good. I had a headache and stopped up head. I slept most of the morning and didn't get on the computer until this afternoon. Hopefully, I'm not taking the flu!

It sounds like you have a full and rewarding family life. How wonderful. :)

I woke up feeling that same way this morning. I had my husband give me to Aleve before he left for work and after I got up I took an allergy pill. It's helped, but my head is sore. Nice day to sit and read TT!

I like your key verse. Welcome back to TT. Lots of flu in our neck of the woods too. Except it's not woods. hmmm.

The Gal Herself said...

Sorry to hear your husband wasn't feeling well. I've heard about a strain of flu that no flu shot can stop. Do you suppose that's what he had? Enjoy your camera and thanks for visiting my TT.

I enjoyed reading through some of your posts too!

Melanie said...

Wow- sounds like you have been quite busy!

Maxine said...

Nice catching up with what you've been doing. Hope you don't get the flu, Barbara! You seem to spend a lot of time with grandchildren. That's so very nice.
I haven't done a Thursday Thirteen in ages either.
Hope you have a good and healthy weekend!

Cindy Swanson said...

Barbara, I enjoyed getting to know you a little better by reading about the latest happenings in your life! You are so blessed to have your grandchildren near you. It sounds like you love it, too. Thanks for stopping by my TT!

damozel said...

I am so sorry about your husband. That must have been terrifying. I'd a million times rather be sick myself than have it happen to mine.

Welcome back and I'm glad things are better.
