It is supposed to be REALLY cold and icy here this weekend so I am, at this very moment, doing all the laundry up and baking various muffins and making meals to heat up, just in case the power goes out from the ice. I may sound crazy but we have been here before with no power for almost 2 weeks!!! We have electric appliances so I am getting prepared!! (We can use electricity for short amounts of time with a generator. Actually, it's a welder, lol)

Last night, I started a new book. I do not usually have time to read fiction but made an exception because I absolutely LOVE Karen Kingsbury books! In about 3 hrs. (with distractions from hubby and kids, lol) I read the entire book, "Between Sundays"...all I can say is, WOW.. Awesome book. Awesome message. I love books of redemption. There's a story in itself there, maybe someday I will share it. :)

We received an unexpected gift today. Can't say more about it at the present time but wow, God works in the every day. That's all I can say. He truly works. :)

Reading "Crazy Love" by Francis Chan for the third time. Reading it with my hubby this time. Amazing life-changing stuff. Really makes you think and sweat.

Eating a zero candy bar and drinking a Dr. Pepper/ haven't had a coke in 2 weeks and right now it taste so good, I don't care about the calories. That and I have a sinus headache so the coke helps. :)

I have become disenchanted with Jillian Michaels. I still believe her stuff is great and I still do the shred when I make the time but her attitude this season on The Biggest Loser???? Well, let's just say, she needs to can it. There is NO reason to talk to someone like they are trash. NONE. 'nuff said!!

And, that's my list of random for you! Hope you have an awesome weekend!! Praise God for all HE has done in your life....
