I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

24 hours

We had a lovely 24 hrs with Joanne.I picked her up from the bus and took her out to Mums place for lunch.She thought Mums new place was really beautiful.We had a salmon salad and Mum gave me some mags to read..Then we went to the supermarket and got stuff for dinner and headed out to home.
It was freezing cold and rainy..typical springtime! But we managed to walk the track in the paddock between showers and Red dog ran with joy..Joanne was very tired and SO needed a break from work so she recharged her batteries in the fresh country air.We had a nice dinner and she went off to bed early,grateful of a good nights sleep...the next day she did ALL the vaccuming,here and at the other house! James was pleased to have her here and he showed her his new bible..he has 3 now and he compares the different versions..My brother came out to visit and prayed for us all..hes wonderful and a real gift from God.
Took Jo back to the bus next day and James was able to ride along with me.It was a great 24 hrs:)

It's cool that James is comparing the different versions of the Bible... It's interesting to see how different people, at different pints in history, all interpreted the Word a little differently from the original texts! I get a special kick out of some of the "Old Guard" who declare that the only true Bible is the original one... the King James Version. Little do they know!

Hope you guys are doing well... And if you think it's freezing where you are, check this out:

They say we're having an 'El Nino this year. Your Spring is going to be wet and colder and our current Autumn has been wet and strangly warmer.

Sounds like a great time! Thanks for the Magnesium hint, I'm going to try it. I'm still twitching. LOL!
