Actually there are two parts to this wooo hooo! 🙂
The first one is, on Saturday I went to the farmer’s market with a set amount of money in my pocket. I didn’t really need any veggies, but I live in a house full of fruit bats, so I put a certain amount of money into my pocket, and went to visit my favorite farmers. I came home with:
- blackberries (or boysenberries, I didn’t ask, and can never tell the difference)
- and blueberries
Well, that afternoon a friend of ours that owns a hair salon called and asked if we wanted any fruit. I said “Oh ya! We’ll take fruit….whatever you want to get rid of”. So she shows up at my house a few minutes later with a box full of a variety of peaches, pluots, nectarines and white nectarines! WOOOOO HOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! Now I finally have enough fruit in the house to be able to make some yummy fruity desserts, and it’s not all being eaten by my fruit bats! 🙂 Thank you God for fulfilling that desire for me! 🙂
Another woooo hooooo……..as many of you that have known me in real life or through the internet for any length of time know we are a one car family. D and I have been married for 18 1/2 years, and for most of that time we have been a one car family……and we’ve always been fine with that (and we still are!). But with gas prices over $4.50 a gallon and climbing 5-12 cents a day where we live (in the past week most stations went up 35- 38 cents in one week) driving our mini-van to work is getting VERY expensive for my hubby. So in the past week we started praying about using the money that we have in our savings account to buy a little commuter car for Don to take back and forth to work. On Friday (or maybe it was Thurs?) we both felt a peace about moving forward on this venture. So we started looking at the classifieds, craigslist.com and watching on the streets and in parking lots for cars that are for sale and that we know to be good gas mileage cars. While we haven’t found the perfect car yet, we aren’t “freaking out” about it. We KNOW that God has the perfect car out there for D for commuting to work with. This is the first time that we’ve been able to look for a car and haven’t had to have it right now because our car is dead or dying. It’s so nice to be able to do this in a relaxed manner…..it takes SOOOO much pressure off! Wooo hooo! 🙂 God is good!
