This week had a bumpy start, but God is faithful and we know He sent us here for a reason, so we are trusting Him and persevering with faith.
On our way walking to the Monday Morning Meeting where Don opens the meeting with prayer after the Pledge of Allegiance and singing the National Anthem… no led by Don, we saw this tree.Don said the fruit looks like papaya.
Monday afternoon, we met new neighbors, Chuck and Marilyn, who just arrived from Iowa.
These three flags are not far from our park… Mexico, Texas, United States flags. Something about this picture just doesn’t seem right. I’m wondering if our northern states bordering Canada fly the Canadian flag at the same height as the U.S. flag? I’m not at all opposed to visitors flying their native colors proudly, but to have a business here and live here in the U.S…. well, it seems strange to fly their native flag in this manner.
We had a good visit with a few folks waiting in the Main Hall for the mail to be put up.
From there we walked to Carolyn’s ‘house.’ She’s in the choir and didn’t show for practice last Thursday afternoon or for church Sunday. We walked to her place last evening and she wasn’t home, so we needed to check on her. Carolyn lost her husband to a major stroke in July and is still going through the grieving process. I can not believe that I did take a picture of the Shi-Chi puppy she got last evening. Sadie, Sadie, pretty lady, is so tiny and just adorable. She'll be good company for Carolyn. We prayed with her and left after a really good visit. Carolyn is one of those folks that we feel like we’ve known forever. She is from Norman, Oklahoma, and our paths have probably crossed there, but we didn’t know each other before coming here.
I made goulash and pan-fried fresh okra for lunch. Really yummy, if I do say so myself.
Neighbor Bruce Beem stopped to visit awhile. His wife, Linda, works in the office. They workamped at Sunscape one season, so we know some of the same people. It was fun talking to Bruce.
Don made a salad with fresh veggies we purchased this morning and served with leftover chicken breast dish he made last night that was ‘out of this world.’
It was a terrific Tuesday.
