Gathering Graces 11/21/2017

*Christy picked me up this morning and we drove to Coeur d’Alene to get some shopping done.  We stopped at Michaels, where I bought a couple small straw bales to put our Nativity Scene on out front, then to Costco for some major food shopping, and then to Safeway to finish up.  Fortunately it wasn’t too busy in any of these stores.  While in Safeway, a Starbucks employee was handing out coffee samples in the produce section.  I sampled a Holiday Spice Flat White drink, and thought it was very delicious.  On the way out of town, Christy and I went through at Starbucks drive thru and each ordered this drink.  It is not too sweet, and really hit the spot.
*While in Coeur d’Alene, I received a text from Paul.  He had gone to the doctor in the afternoon, and it was determined he has a sinus infection.  He was given some medicine to help clear it up, and told to use the Neti Pot.  I was very thankful that it was not something more serious.  Thanks to everyone for your prayers.  Keep praying for a full and speedy recovery!!
*Upon arrival at home, Cosette and Zoe helped bring the groceries inside, and I started preparing dinner for the “dinner party” we had tonight.  On the menu, Homemade Macaroni and Cheese, roasted broccoli and cauliflower, Italian Salami, Kalamata Olives and Stuffed Green Olives with Jalapenos.  Bill and Debbie are staying at our home a while longer, because they discovered today that their house had no heat because of the house renovations.  Tonight Jazmin Sauer and Sidnee Grubb, and her boyfriend Benjamin Thompson joined us for dinner.  It was fun to catch up with them and see how they are doing.
*We topped off the evening watching an episode of The Golden Girls.  I have been having so much fun watching this show.  Later Cosette and I were able to have another great talk. We talked about kids she went to school with, what they are doing, and how some of them have had some pretty hard things happen to them already since they all graduated from high school 4 years ago.
