Sunday . . . .


Other than going to church yesterday, we had a rather lazy day. We went to church, etc.  visited Ariana and Jose and watched The Theory of Everything in the evening.  Mitzie was even too lazy to play with her squirrel.  She just cuddled it. 


Fell asleep last night to the dulcet tones of Tom Jones wafting through the air from the Chester Racecourse where he was giving a concert.  You could hear him and the music as clear as a bell.  Now being actually able to see him would have been the icing on the cake.  Thunderstorms and all.  We had a few bit cracks! 

And now for some news.  I have decided that at the end of this week I am going to make my blog, this one anyways, closed to invited readers only, so if you want to be able to continue to read me, you will have to e-mail me and request inclusion.  Sorry about that.  I'll let you all know why after the deed it done and I know only people who care about me and people that I trust are reading me.  So if you want to be on my readers list.  E-mail or message me with your e-mail address so that I can add you to the list of approved readers. In the meantime, God bless and happy week.
