Where Have You Been? What Have You Been Doing?

Yes, I did finally get my Christmas stuff packed up and moved to my rented storage area. I did it on Feb. 4th - and just to clear things up - I had taken down the outside decorations and lights quite awhile ago - but the manger scenes and indoor stuff was still up.

On Friday, Feb. 5th, my daughter, her husband and her friend and myself all left at 5:30 a.m. to drive to Washington-Crossing, PA. We were going so we could see my grandson perform the lead in the musical, You're A Good Man Charlie Brown on Saturday. We had so much fun watching his performance! His Dad had gone 2 hrs. early (with a good book) to make sure we got front row seats and we did!

Sunday was Superbowl day and we were crazy watching the game and seeing our favorite team, the Giants, win!!! Plus my daughters and Lindsay organized all the food - guacamole (sp?), pigs in a blanket, twice baked potatoes, and a great chili! It was one of the best played Superbowl games I ever watched.

Monday my daughter drove us all to Secaucus, NJ and we took the train to NYC!!!!! It was a perfect day - sunny - and brisk. Lindsay had never been to NYC so we got to do all the regular stuff - Rockefeller Center with the ice skaters, Tiffany's, seeing the Plaza Hotel and the Empire State Building - a glimpse of Central Park - then we headed downtown on the subway and walked around Greenwich Village/Soho area. We must have walked 10 miles! I loved being back in THE CITY!!! We headed back to Myrtle Beach on Tuesday - stopping at Arlington National Cemetery and then going to IKEA!!! Didn't get back until 11:30 p.m.

So today, Saturday, I basically stayed in all day - cleaning and reading. I've been re-reading the Narnia series and loving it - finished The Horse And His Boy today and it was just a fun read! My sister called me and asked if I wanted to go with her and my Mom to Cheeseburger Paradise for dinner and I of course said "yes!" Great hamburger - fun meal - though my Mom didn't like the music that was playing.

I'm also reading Abandoned To God - Oswald Chambers by David McCasland and it is excellent. It is a borrowed book so I can't make notes of favorite pages in the back of the book like I like to do - so I am filling a notebook with favorites - of course I am practically copying the whole book!!!!

It is late - so much for trying to have an early bedtime!

Psalm 4:8 "In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety."
