Early to Bed.....

Early to bed, early to rise, makes one healthy, wealthy and wise!  Do you remember your mom or dad saying that to you?  Our kids, when they were growing up, went to bed when it was still daylight out.....and the neighbor kids were still playing out.  We had a hectic schedule with Tim driving the kids from Addyston Baptist Church to a Christian School, so they were all up early to get ready!  That didn't change when Tim stopped driving the bus, he was then taking the kids to another Christian school where he worked.  They complained more than once about their lot in life!  :D

Funny thing, at least one of those kids puts their kids in bed even earlier than she had to go to bed as a kid!  :D  I thought of this when Tim went to bed at 8:45 tonight.  As I walked out of the room, he was saying, "What am I doing going to bed at 8:45?  It's still light out!  And, the kids are still out playing!"  We both laughed at the memory!  And, I'm thinking it didn't hurt our kids any at all!

Tim's belly was feeling better today!  And, no fever!  Thank You, Lord!  He got up around 7, ate a bowl of cereal and then came back to bed until I got up around 8:30.  While I was showering, he got dressed and went on over to the church.

I put a big chicken breast in my 3-crock cooker last night with some left over spaghetti sauce I had in the fridge.  Then, today before heading to church, I used another of the 3 crocks to cook some frozen little ears of corn.  Then after church all I had to do was cook a pack of ramen noodles for the chicken.  I added cheese to mine!  It was very good.  Tim only ate about 1/3 of his.  He didn't want to put too much on his stomach, so I saved it for him to eat at some other time.

He went right to bed after lunch and slept until about 3:45.  He had some strawberry shortcake when he got up.  Then he got dressed for the evening services and was back over at the church by 4:45!  Then after church tonight he ate some fruit.  At least he ate something!

I worked on the new church sign since it was nice and cool outside tonight.  Then I cleaned up the kitchen and loaded the dishwasher.  So that job is done!  I despise doing dishes!  But, I'm thankful for dirty dishes because it means we got to eat!  Thank You, Lord!

Well, I didn't take many pictures today, but here are the ones I did take.

Went from a golf ball with a cone head to an umbrealla.

Starlings in the neighbor's yard

Something startled them

But they came right back

Reminds me of the Alfred Hitchcock movie, "The Birds."

Pretty clouds

Beautiful sunset

Well, I haven't done much today, but I think I'm ready for bed!  Night!
