It is 9:30pm

I am home and settled in now. Being in court for jury was an interesting experience. My name was called twice today but I was never part of the final pick. Now I will not be given the opportunity to serve again for two years.

While it was an experience, it was taxing to pack my stuff for the whole day. I mean I figured it all out but I certainly wouldn't want to do it on a regular basis. Getting off public transit and walking the 1.75 miles home in the afternoon in the heat I think is what really did me in. Praise God He gave me the foresight to pack an umbrella for a bit of shade.

For now I am going to unwind and hit my pillow.

May blessings abound for you in all you do!

Random waiting uppdates

I am sitting here today using my time as best as I know how and waiting all at the same time. It is my honor and privilege to be in a waiting room today with my name in the lottery for jury duty. The day is half over and I haven't been called yet. We shall see.

A judge came in this moring and gave an impressive speech about our importance and vital position as a juror. That even if we arent called, simply having our name in for draw assures that there will be opportunity for a well rounded jury. I believe every ounce of that. I truly do. But I also think it hilarious that the decor mural our chairs are all positioned to view in this waiting room....is an elaborate circus paintjng. Am I off my rocker or is there humor in that?

So this is the first time I have ever tried topost from ny tablet.....

I have to say I have been playing around a lot on my other blog page. Don't know how to attach a link on this so here is the address: apathoffood.blogspot.com

My husband and are are getting healthy and having so much fun in the process. Beteen the 2 of us we have lost almost 30 pounds in the last two weeks. We feel great, are learning awesome things and since we are doing it together its like we are continually on a date. It is too much fun!

Thank You God for Your direction and for helping encourage us in changing our learned patterns and habits. Every day is a new victory to celebrate.
