It’s rather rare that I have a quiet weekend. However, that was bestowed on me the past two days while Cerwin, our sons, two grandsons, our brother-in-law, and a neighbor went to West Virginia to hunt deer.
I was so settled into my La-Z-Boy – watching a good Hallmark Christmas movie and engrossed in beating the computer in a match game – that it took me a few minutes to accept Kristen’s invitation to come to their house for Chinese food (from a local restaurant) and participate in their movie night.
Part of me didn’t want to move out of my chair, change my frumpy house clothing into something presentable, and go outside into the cold wind. But I was so pleased to be invited and soon called her back to say that I would accept their invitation.
While Kristen and Jana finished setting the table, I asked Jared if he would play a song for me. He recently began taking piano lessons, and seemed pleased that I asked. He played Deck the Halls – by memory because he couldn’t find his book on a quick search.
Jana and the three youngest boys do not like Chinese, so they had macaroni and cheese. 🙂
Then, even though some of the other planes made fun of him, he signed up for a race around the world. We were sure that he would come in last after he took time to help a plane that was having engine trouble. Then some of the bully planes damaged Dusty – and later he got into some bad weather.
Whoever did the artwork for this movie did a fabulous job of creating talking planes and landscape as the planes went from place to place around the world. We could usually determine where they were by the landscape – and the language accent of the people where the planes landed at then end of each leg of the trip.
You will have to watch it to see who wins! 🙂
Today at church we were blessed by a challenging message from Romans 14, then this afternoon I again settled in to my La-Z-Boy and began writing our personal end-of-year newsletter. Cerwin called after lunch and said they were also blessed by a challenging message at New Hope Church of the Brethren, Dunmore, West Virginia.
It was a delightful weekend.
