Not a good week for the Rangers! Maybe next year! I guess Academy will have send all those World Series shirts (with the Rangers on them) back. Seems a waste.
Really cool weather is here, and I tried out the heater in my house for the first time---I have never had one that heated so quickly and so warm! Thank you Lord. You knew I needed warmth for my thin blood and quaking bones.
Maddie and I played a game similar to Scrabble last night, and she won--and we had a good laugh when she made up a word to gain points, and I said "What is that?" She pronounced it phonetically and just laughed and said "I made it up." It looked like a Russian version of an English word to me. What a girl--she is way ahead of the rest of her class in a math race too.
And Ella, sweet Ella, was thrilled when I let her make pumpkin cupcakes this morning--she christened my new Kojie apron. Ella loves to cook, and she also got to do another favorite thing: Plant a flower--hope it doesn't freeze. But I think mums are almost industructable.
It is such a joy to be here close so I can watch them grow and change and enjoy life. Maddie hand-printed some Bible verses for me to put on my fridge. She has such a beautiful hand, unlike her grandmother whose handwriting is quickly deteriorating into hen scratching.
When they come, we usually watch the Disney channel, and I am always struck at the insistence of their marketing--always pushing new programs and new products and new stars. No wonder they make billions a year. I rather resent it, although I am glad that there is one station my grandkids can watch anytime of the day and night safely. And I really do like their new program "Jessie".
Today I am going to watch some of the programs I recorded while the Rangers were on--love that DVR.
I just might take time to read a book too. I am anxious to get into Mike Cope's new Megan's Secrets.
