It is Sunday morning and I have been awake for about an hour or more now. It is beautiful outside. The sun is shining and the temperatures are sitting in the low sixties. Now if only it would stay like that all day. This is one of those rare Sundays that I don't have to go anywhere. Katie and I went to church last night so that we, I should say, she could sleep in.
Pastor's sermon was very moving and personal to me. They usually always are. Jake and I have commented several times in the past that it feels as if our Pastor chooses his words just for us. I do realize this not to be true as he plans his sermons far in advance, but I think that it is a special gift to be able to make one feel that he is speaking just to you! Just as if you were reading God's word, he is speaking just to us, personally.
After church Kate and I , by the way she hate's when I call her Kate as she likes to be called Katie. I like to call her Kate as that's what I wanted to name her, just Kate! After church Kate and I came home and hooked up the computer again. I have commented to a few of you that we were having mouse problems. None of our mice would work. It was a small glitch that Pastor fixed for us. Thankfully as it doesn't take long for computer withdrawal to set in around here! It is particularly bad for Kate, yes I called her Kate, she's still asleep! But also for me as blogging has become my newest hobby. I cannot crochet like I used to and sewing has become a little to costly for me to keep up with so, I blog. And I clean. Clean and blog, that's what I do.
As I was catching up on everyone's blogs last night I discovered that there are three blogs that I can't make comments on. It has something to do with downloading possible viruses because of the way the comment sections are set up. This really upset me as two of them are my old favorites and the third is a new friend who I've bonded with and really enjoy commenting to. These three blogs are Wanda's, Jerelene's and Terrie's. So I guess if things are set up right, I will just have to email comments to them! I am sorry girl's, but just know that I will read your posts everyday regardless.
After catching up on who's been sick and who hasn't, I retired to my recliner and watched a movie. Kate soon followed and we enjoyed a few laughs together. I don't know why or if it's just my imagination, which I don't think that it is, but Kate and I seem to be getting closer lately. Why in this past week alone she's let me hug her a least four time's! Still no kisses but I'll take what I can get. She reached a point a few years ago where she just stopped giving any physical displays of endearment towards any of us. But it almost seems as if it's starting to turn around. I suppose each individual is different in that respect. Frank and Ginny , my two adult children never stopped hugging even as teens and still do. But Katie is and always has been a very different child , young woman. After she was born there was a while when Jake and I thought something might be wrong with her as she never smiled. Then finally after a few months we would notice tiny little smiles here and there. Relief is what we felt then. I remember Jake and I trying everything to try and get her to smile. So serious was she. We couldn't even get a laugh out of her. Then one day we heard her giggling. It seemed that her big sister who at the time was 14 , was the one that could make Katie laugh. And smile. Funny, it's still that way today sometimes.
Kate is not as serious today as she was back then. As a matter of fact, she is quite funny. Actually witty would be a better word. It has become much easier for me to make her laugh. Especially as I age as she thinks that this is quite hysterical! She is forever pointing out how many times that I repeat myself and how humorous it is to watch me try to walk after I have been sitting for any length of time. Also the fact that my hearing isn't quite what it used to be and that I am more like my mother with each passing day. And to be truthful, I really don't care as I love to hear Katie laugh. She has a great laugh!
Wow I've been on the computer for quite a bit now and it's still so peaceful in the house. I wonder how long it will last! I don't really have any particular plans for the day although there are many things that need to be done. Many projects that I can choose from. What will she choose?
