Soon, when all the plants are in bloom ( I'll post more pics then ), it will look amazing out here - they really are marvelous plants. Truth be told though; they're not my favorite (shhhh) as they are EVERYWHERE here in Oregon. They even grow wild in the mountains. But, I LOVE plants - love love them - therefore, I will love rhodys! In fact, I am a plant f-a-n-a-t-i-c.
So, my cool man is a busy boy right now preparing stock to ship today. Hes in the middle of keepingworkersbusy-balling-diggin-potting-mud-andofcourserain-to get it all done!
If ya think of it; you could pray that his back holds out for him.
I'll leave you with a picture of the nursery a few years back:
I better run, as I'm supposed to be out there trimming!
Have a great weekend!!!

SO - I wanted to brag about where we went to dinner the other night.
Yup. There it is, and it was AMAZING!
One of them all-you-can-shovel-into-your-gut meals. I would not be kidding you: we ATE. I had so many crab legs, among other things.........the most fantastic food ever!
But the best part was the company.
My husband is my absolute best friend on this earth. There is never a dull moment with him around - he is so much stinkin fun !
And, our dear friends - D & D, you guys are the best! We love you both so much - thanks for such a fun evening.
Ahh yes - life is good. ( and I'm still full! )

I cannot sleep. I always said if (when)I wake up in the middle of the night, I WOULD (will) NOT go online.
Here I am.
Oh well. So yes, I have been awake since 3:00am. I am totally a morning person. But not at 3:00am.
My hunk of burnin love will be getting up here in a bit. I've already made his lunch (yes, and I do that every morning, thank you.) and I just started the coffee........hey, why not?
I had to turn off the stinkin tv; not only is the crud they show sick in the middle of the night (how about all the time) but now is the time they show the sickest, freakiest movie advertisements. yikes.
I also like to use this time to pray. Yes - I wake up and stay up at least a couple times a week.
No use whining about it (you all don't think I'm whining here, do you?) - I'm just killing time. Hey! Throw some prayer requests my way - and in a few nights when I'm up again, know that your helping me pass the time!

Before we start schooling everyday, the kids and I have a short prayer time. Yesterday, we decided that in that prayer time we would start praying daily that God would use each one of us.
Not really thinking to much more about it (more like forgetting!) we went about our day and ended up at the grocery store.
As we are finishing up and heading to the checkout line, an elderly women in a wheelchair scooter, asks us where the english muffins are. I tell her "oh, your just about there, they are right around the corner" and we go over there together (because I needed them too). She then very sweetly says, " I really like the raisin kind" - oh my word, she really was the cutest thing - my daughter runs up, grabs the raisin ones off the top shelf and puts them in the lady's basket. She then turns to me with huge eyes and says " Mom, He did it !!!"
It took a second for it to click what she meant - I couldn't stop smiling the rest of the trip.

Snippet of conversation over the phone yesterday between ah (amazing husband) and I:
ah: 'open your bible and read Luke 9:48'
me: (flipping pages) 'okay' (reads) 'A person will become great as he sincerely and unpretentiously looks away from self to God'.
ah: 'thats not what verse 48 says?'
me: 'oh, I was just reading the notes for 48' (again reads aloud)
' Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For he who is least among you all - he is he greatest.'
me: 'are you referring to this adoption?'
ah: ' have you ever looked at this verse that way before?'
me: (quiet tears) 'no.......'
I have been praying that God would, through my husband, give me answers to struggles that I've been having through this adoption......
I'm sending updated paperwork in today.
