" Soothing Sunday "

Yes indeed it has been a soothing Sunday. When I woke this morning I relaxed with my coffee and read everyone's daily blogs.

Yes I do realize how lovely I am in the morning! I just can't figure out why I am always hearing horses. I should probably see the ear nose and throat specialist.

After my soothing morning ritual I started to get ready for church. As I posted yesterday, we had a student from the seminary school in St. Louis leading our service today. Our pastor and his lovely wife decided that they just had to go and visit their grandson. Isn't that sill

All kidding aside, they deserve a nice visit with their peeps and some quality time with their beautiful grandson. And I think that it is a wonderful opportunity for a young seminary student to have some hands on experience. I'm glad that we can provide that opportunity and grateful that we found someone! And he did a fine job. Very nice.

After church I went to Wal-Mart to pick up a few things.

I can't do without my Sam's Choice coffee in the morning.

Not only would I be unpleasant to be around but for some odd reason, I hear hissing sounds until I have my warm cup a joe in my hands!
So I picked up some coffee and a few other things. Waved bye, bye to Wally World and off I went in my trusty station wagon headed home.
Initially I was going to do a little yard work but it was a little too humid and warm for me today. I have been feeling much, much better today and thought it better to take it easy. Whatever, I mean LAZY !!!

Now anyone that really knows me, knows that I can't completely relax until my house is clean and straightened or I am very, very ill.
So when I got home and put my few grocery items away I took the doggies for a walk. After which I washed the dishes and the floors downstairs. All the while singing
" Don't Ya Want Me Baby?"

Alrighty now I can RELAX! I popped a Marie Callender's Parmesan chicken pot pie in the micro and when it was done I settled in my comfy recliner for some lunch and serious reclining.
Ah yes there's nothing like a full belly, quite house and two cozy doggies to induce a nice little nap!
After my nap I watched the telly all day and all evening.
" I'm a celebrity Get Me out of here!"
" John Q"
" Pursuit of Happyness"
And now " Ice Road Truckers"

Very soon now I am going to walk the doggies, go upstairs, lay in bed and read.
Was I bored watching t.v. all day? Nope.
Didn't I feel lazy just laying there most of the day doing nothing? Nope.
It is very rare for me to be able to sit most of the day and do nothing and I totally enjoyed it!

Diana...What would we do without Wal Mart?? I shudder to think...
Our pastor left this afternoon to go on vacation (Texas) with his family. We will have guest pastors until he returns. I will miss our pastor, but the Lord blesses...."Where two or three are gathered.."
I love the Medusa look on your blog today...reminds me of ME!! What is it with my hair since I've gotten older??!! It does actually hiss at me when I brush it. Thanks for the post....lovely and full of smiles.

Diana, I am laughing so hard here! I needed this post!
You are too funny and I LOVED the pictures and the quotes! Very, very cute! Very, very witty!

I like Wal Mart too but ours is quite a ways away, Kohl's is closer, and we have a Target that is very close to us. I just love those 'everything' stores, and you can get some really nice things there at good bargains. I just got new sheets, curtains, and pillows there last week.

And you didn't sound lazy at all to me! If I get a few chores done each day I feel like I've had a good day!
You sound like you had a much-deserved rest after doing your chores! And after all you've been going through.
I'm glad you seem to be feeling a little better.
I'll keep you in my prayers.
And don't forget to let us know anything the minute you hear. I need to breathe a sigh of relief!

I'm like you with the morning coffee. I just don't feel like the day has begun without it!
Love and Prayers, Eileen

I'm off to do a few chores and have one of those lazy afternoons you speak of...we all need and deserve down time!

Smile and take care!

What a cute post and you photograph sooo well.

If you made me drink coffee, I'd probably look more like the snake lady (Medusa)! But I do need to have breakfast.
You found awesome pictures, Diana and so good to hear you're feeling better.

blessings and hugs,

Hi Diana,
I had a good laugh at your post today, and what a great sense of humor you have. I loved your pics, and the way you told about your day was so unique, it kept me reading and laughing...I felt like I was sitting accross from you with my own cup of coffee, while you described your day... : ) entertaining and witty! Glad you are feeling better too.

Diana said...

Hi Jackie,
I really don't like going to Wal-Mart, it's to much stimulation for my brain all at once!
I get confused, I remember things that I need but can't afford, I buy things I don't need and can't afford, I'm tired right now just from thinking about it!I need a nap!
Any who thanks for visiting my world!

Diana said...

Hello Eileen, You are so sweet with your kind words to me. See what happens when Kate isn't here and I can be creative! Don't tell her I said that,She shoot me one of those " My mother is insane looks!"
We have to drive about 50 miles to get to Target or Kohls. And I don't care for driving that much, so unless my husband is home and wants to take a trip, I'm stuck with Wally World. Thats what all the truckers call it!
The camping trip is over and Kate is still with my son and his family. Maybe they are going to keep her for awhile?

Diana said...

Bernie you will be happy to know that I went to Curves this morning. One day and I already feel the difference! I'm so proud of all that you've accomplished so far! I am going to go tomorrow too, God willing!

Diana said...

Hi Wanda, I hope you are enjoying your lazy afternoon as I did mine. I ended up staying up til midnight watching "Into the Wild" I thought it was great! That young man was a little out of the box but quite amazing as well!

Diana said...

Well Marcy I do think that I could live without coffee but I really do enjoy the taste of it in the morning. I could drink something else for caffeine,But the coffee makes me more beautiful!

Diana said...

Thanks for visiting My World Janine. I hope you're not on hiatus too long as I am just getting into your posts! And I am very partial to journalists! My younger daughter wants to go into photojournalism, wouldn't that be a kick? Two in the same family!
