Mother-in-law at the beauty shop
I has a fever Saturday night after attending the District Ladies Auxiliary meeting.  It was low grade and was gone by Sunday morning.  Palm Sunday services were well attended.  Sunday night after the services were over I began to run fever again and did for the next two days.  It got as high as 101.8 and felt miserable Monday.  My Monday did not start off that way however.  My Sunday night fever was gone Monday morning so I went to the nursing home and preached to a good crowd there then went back to the house.  I got feeling poorly and checked my temperature and it was 99.7.  As the day progressed my fever went up and I went to bed feeling like I had the flu.  Tuesday was better with my fever lower.  Tuesday night my fever broke and Wednesday morning I felt better.  With no fever all day I went to church that evening feeling fine.  I broke out in hives and in the middle of the night Janie and I took a run to Wal-Mart to get some Benedryl.  I took some and the hives went away but I was left with a red rash which, thank the Lord, is gone today.  It has been a rough week but I did get some work done.  I am really looking forward to Easter Sunday.  The sermon will be entitled "Guarding the Tomb of Jesus".  God bless you.

Busy Busy

Helped Jason teach a group of French people how to use Skype
At our Spanish teachers house for his daughter's birthday party
Me and James helped do some electrical work at his house
Justin and me working on the lights and plugs for the cabinets
Janie mowing her mother's yard
Visited with my mother
We have had a busy trip to Henderson.  Janie and I mowed three yards in one day.  We mowed my mother-in-law's yard first.  Janie mowed the bulk of it while I cooked lunch for her.  We went to see my mother next and the visit went well but the afternoon for her did not.  After I left they called me to say that mother had gone outdoors without them knowing it.  When they moved her to the secure hall for observation and some testing mother knocked down another patient but did not seriously injure him.  She will hopefully return to her room in a few days.  They have given her med's for her cold and have given her anxiety med's to calm her down.  I don't like to see her drugged.  After our visit with mother we went back to Henderson and Janie mowed the yard at the house and I mowed the yard at the cottage after repairing the lawnmower.  It was off to grocery shop for my mother-in-law and then back to my mother-in-law's house for the night.  We will take her to Tyler today for her hair appointment and then head back to Hillsboro to attend the district ladies auxiliary meeting Saturday morning.  God bless you.

Janie and I have been spring cleaning the past two days.  We stayed in Hillsboro this week after going to Henderson every week for the past 6 weeks in a row.  Janie washed clothes and vacuumed and I helped her re-arrange the bedroom furniture.  We cleaned out our draws and culled unused clothing.
The insurance company that insures our church building has an annual meeting where they serve a big meal and we are going to attend that this evening.  Tomorrow we will be attending a birthday party for one of the kids from our church.  It has been a good week and has gone by fast.  It has been 2 weeks since my last blog post.  I hope to do better next time.  God bless you.
