The Beginning of Summer

Well, June has come in with a bang! What storms etc., that we have experienced. Now I hear the heat is coming tomorrow and friday. Highs in the 90s. From one extreme to another.

I had my last dentist appointment today for a while. We did 3 teeth. So, now my teeth are all ready for braces! I will be making an appointment with the orthodontist to hopefully see him in July and get the ball rolling on the braces. At my age! Oh well, it will be for the better in the end.

I am working through my soul healing book still as well as a workbook my counselor gave me. There are a lot of feelings and hurts to deal with. Lately I have been in an angry phase, which has not been pleasant for anyone, but I feel like I am coming out of it now. I am grieving for all that I have lost lately. As well as other griefs. So, it's a slow, painful process at times, but I am getting there. I know that God will help me, is helping me, to work through all of this.

I signed up for the Beth Moore Women's Bible study at our new church. I am somewhat excited and nervous about it. I will actually have to introduce myself to people for the first time. But, I think it will be good for me. It runs every Wednesday night from June 18th - August 13th. I will miss the first week because I will be away visiting my family. But, it ends just in time for my new nephew's birth which is after August 13th. So, other than that, it should be an interesting summer church-wise.

I am still involved in my politics. My conservative group is meeting this monday. We are called "Coalition for a Conservative Majority". I think we are in 5 states currently. We are not backing candidates as a group, but are free to do so on our own, which I do. Our group mostly will work on issues that we are concerned about in the conservative community. We are just getting started, but I am excited about it.

I am starting to get my mind geared for school. Classes don't start til Sept 24th, but I have to go to new student orientation here in the next few weeks and register for my classes etc. I am excited about getting back into it and finally getting this degree finished! Working with the different campaigns and going to school in the fall, right in the heat of the battle so to speak, will be a challenge. But, I am looking forward to all of it.

I guess the democrats selected their guy last night. I have heard a lot on the news today about him being the first black nominee etc. I want to remind folks that he is also half white, and muslim. We must consider our options so carefully this fall as we go to the voting booth. I hope that each of you will think long and hard and pray long and hard about who you choose for our next President, in particular. It is SO important this year, that we get it right. Everyone needs to pay particular attention this year as this process plays out. Make a good decision before you go into that voting booth in November.

I hope to get back on my bike after my visit to my family. I will get to swim there, which will be good exercise with my walking. I am also back to lifting my weights. So, we'll give the bicycle a shot when I get back and see how it makes me feel. The oddest things make that surgery area still feel sore. Oh well, all in good time.

Well, I guess that's it for this post. I am cooking supper at the same time and am trying not to burn the meat! Yikes! So I had better go for now.

If you have good weather, get out and enjoy it where you are! God's creation is beautiful and the sun feels wonderful.

God Bless You All.

Summer is all up on us here and so are the storms.

I need to start hitting the gym when I find some free time. As if!

Enjoy your sunshine!

I am trying to enjoy the sunshine. Our heat has been so suddenly intense. It has been so weird going from one extreme to another. Yesterday we had air quality alert, so I didn't go out (have a touch of asthma). Yesterday, today, tomorrow and Monday is supposed to be the worst of the heat. Then a couple of cold fronts are supposed to come through and cool things down next week. I know what you mean about the gym! I have just started back with my weight lifting and other exercises since my surgery (i have been walking). Anyhow, be safe! Love ya.
