Oh I Wish I Was An Oscar Myer Wiener



Oh I wish I were an Os-car Mayer Wie - ner
That is what I'd tru-ly like to be
'cause if I were an Os-car May-er Wie - ner
Ev-ery one would be in love with me.

Today, after Bible Study I had to stop at the grocery store for milk. When I parked, I noticed that there was an unusual, yet recognizable vehicle across the parking lot. After I got my milk, we went and took a few pictures of and with it. How funny is this?? It was just parked in the back of the lot. There were no workers around passing out free wieners or cute little kiddos singing the Oscar Myer song. However, I'm glad I stopped to enjoy the moment because how often do you see the Weinermobile?!
Note the license plate. Becca, Taeya and Amanda

Our friend Amanda was with us so she joined in the fun.

Life

Lately, things have been challenging in my life to say the least. I have been clinging tightly to the promises in Scripture. One verse that has been encouraging is Deut. 31:8 "The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you; He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged."

Life is often hard and I am so thankful for a loving God who not only cares about the sparrows but cares so much more about those He created in his own image. I am truly blessed to have a personal relationship with my Creator and know that He is trustworthy through the good and the bad and that nothing is out of his control.

Phil and I have been dealing with a property manager at our last place who has been difficult to deal with and has made it very difficult for us to be released from our lease, even though we spent a great deal of time and money finding new renters that she approved. As of this morning, it seems that we will be allowed out of our lease provided that they sign a new lease in the next day or so.

On a happier note, we are loving our new house and are definitely settling in at this point. We had a busy few days two weekends ago as I had some women friends over on Friday while our husbands played poker together, we had a family of six over on Saturday and our pastor's family of nine over on Sunday. I love fellowshipping with others and am so thankful for friends with whom we can share God's blessings. I neglected to take any pictures because we were having such a good time. I had fun planning and cooking the meals. We enjoyed eating Javanese, Thai and Indian food. I really like ethnic dishes :) I have fallen in love with homemade Naan because it's so quick and easy to make. If requested, perhaps I can put the recipe on a future blog post. Let me know if you'd like to try it.

I'll be working on a picture post next with pictures from our first ever camping trip since Phil and I got married 4 1/2 years ago! For now, enjoy some misc. pictures from the past month.

We took Taeya out to Sonic after taking her to the fair. She REALLY enjoyed eating the icecream...all by herself!


This picture was taken prior to the previous one. She's wearing a little less icecream in it.

Here she's eating a snack in our empty condo while I did a last minute touch-up cleaning.
