A good weekend to be home...

Glad it's my weekend off because I probably couldn't get out of the driveway anyway!

I took this earlier this morning. The horses are taking shelter under some evergreens. Notice the horse on the far right. She's picking her feet up high to clear the knee deep (horse knees that is) snow.

They were having fun chasing each other through the deep snow. It doesn't look very deep in this picture, but in some areas it's much deeper.
This was taken later in the morning when there was a little more light.
Josh, Jess and family made it safely to Berea, Kentucky yesterday where they will be making their home along with Jess's folks and siblings. We're looking forward to seeing pictures of the farm, complete with alpacas! When we get some photos I'll share them here.
It's a nice quiet weekend for us. I'm doing a little house cleaning and making up the sleeper sofa in the back bedroom for Jordan who will arrive from Texas onTuesday night. Bob and I will be making the trek to Minneapolis to pick him up about 9:30 p.m. so it will be late when we get back home. We hope to get in some good visiting until he returns to Texas on the 19th. That will involve another trek to Minneapolis to catch a 6:00 A.M. (!) flight. I've arranged my hours at work so I can catch up on my sleep! (He's worth it!)
I'm also reading through all of the materials from my Long-Term Nursing Care class so I can take my CNA (certified nursing assistant) exam in May. It's been 3 years since I took the course, so I was concerned that I would have to take the class again before I could take the exam, but the instructor said I could challenge the exam without taking the course over. Yea! CNA's don't make that much more than I do right now at my deli job, but I think it would be rewarding work without the extreme responsibilities of a registered nurse. I'm aiming for working in a nursing home or home health, NOT a hospital.
Other than that, I'm getting in some art time and enjoying home life when not working. I'm determined to trust God for that looming student loan, but He can take care of that better than anyone. After all, who, by worrying, can add one cubit to his stature? (Where have I heard that before?)

Oh, and here are two photos I just came across while changing my grandkid photos on the sidebar. See a similarity here?

Starry and Nathan at the zoo...
Audrey (on the right) and her cousin, Cali. (Don't lose your drawers, Audrey!) This is the picture window on the end of Micah and Adam's trailer and Audrey is pointing at the horses in the pasture. I thought these two pics were really cute!
Blessings on your household and may you be filled with shalom! :)
