April is nearly over…where is the year going?! 

Seriously, it’s going by too fast. Someone get me off this ride STAT!!! My son has had his birthday, leaves now cover the tree branches, bees are buzzing about, bunnies frequent our yard, and before we’ll know it Christmas will be here and we’ll start the new year. Am I the only one?! 

Ok, I’ll stop complaining, but it really is throwing me for a loop here. And I’ll just be honest with you all, my summer is going to be crazy busy. Lots of wonderful things going on at church this year, to which I feel extremely blessed to be part of since I know there are several other well accomplished and equally capable folks who could do the work that God has called me to do. But since He’s called me to fulfill these specific needs, I am more than ready to step up and do my absolute best for Him! What will that mean on here? Well, all I can do is try and I ask that you all hang in there with me! 

So, an update first…Last week I accidentally left my iPad at church and didn’t get it back till yesterday. I felt lonely without it. Naked at times. Oh how I hate that! Such dependence on a little device…thankfully my Dad was kind enough to let me borrow his device so I could at least manage my NOK FB page and personal FB profile. My Instagram and email though, yowzers! Backed up just a tad 😳 This afternoon I was able to finally get my IG updated, so if you have an account on there, be sure to check @nok_amandagayle. This week I am planning to post my wee little heart out! 

I do have happy news, two weeks ago I fell off the health wagon(that’s not the happy news). Last week I eased myself back on it(partially good news), but this morning after wrecking things I am happy to report I’m down 22 pounds!

  
I’ll take it!! It could be worse, so many praises going up for this small victory! And hey, losing the equivilent of 217 golf balls is awesome. I wonder how many sticks of butter that is?! 🤔 And G-Man is starting the slow wind up of his school year. Today he finished Science and came out passing it with an 87/B+ for the year. Very excited for him! I was the one sweating bullets over here about his final exam, which he passed as well(got an 82). He ceases to amaze me! 

  
And finally got around to getting two big pork butts into the oven. Are they butts or shoulders?! Meh, it’s bbq goodness, who cares! Mom was gracious enough to make extra rub for me while I finished up my school with G-Man. Tomorrow I’ll make a low carb mock potato salad to go with and maybe a side salad. Mmm, going to be good eats!! 

 

Okie dokie, I think I’ve shared enough for now 😁 In the meantime, enjoy the rest of you Monday and hope you all have blessed evening!
