This weekend brought about the "spring forward" moving our clocks up an hour, this is something I am not fond of. But I'm hoping all of you remembered to make it to church on time for Sunday morning. I've heard on the news of some politicians lobbying for the time to stay the same, I believe I agree because this old body is having a hard time doing all these adjustments, just leave it alone, I hope you agree.
How was your past week? Glad to see all the water going down, was kind of worried after all the rain we got on Saturday. Kenneth, my sister and I was in Owensboro when the downpour came, what a mess trying to get around and do some shopping. We made it and got back home safely. Sure am happy with the warmer temperatures and occasionally the sun shines. I sure enjoy any amount of rays I get. This next week will be spring break for all the kiddo's and school staff, if traveling be safe and hope you have a great time. Allie is on break this week and soaking up the sun in Florida, she says this was a much needed break from school and work, praying for a great time and safe travels back. Sure hope to see her real soon, it has been a while and I really do miss her.
