So this weekend has turned out pretty good so far. Yesterday I had a wicked bad headache, and felt awful for essentially having to ignore Ava for a bit. But it did go away and then we were off to the zoo. I decided to walk instead of drive because it really was a beautiful day out. I probably could have picked a better time though. By the time we arrived at the Zoo it was well into Ava's nap time. She was not very happy or cooperative....oh well :)
She slept on the walk home, and yes, I became very sunburned! I know after all my scolding to Larry and putting on sunscreen! I don't know I didn't think I would get sunburned, not that I actually think I have sunscreen...But I did buy some. I'm just glad Ava was covered up enough that she didn't get burnt.
We came home and went to Walmart (after spending $65.01 on Gas!!!!!!!!!) and I bought a barbeque, just a little one that uses those little Coleman tanks. It's so cute and I am very happy with it. I had a tasty dinner of Turkey Burgers, Tinfoil Potatoes and Cesar Salad.
Then Larry and I watched Evan Almighty. I thought it was a good movie, I am partial to Steve Carrel and I actually, despite his last few films, didn't think that he was too much like his Michael Character on The Office. My favourite part of the whole film was when 'God' was speaking to his wife and he said "If someone prays for patience does God grant them patience, or opportunities for them to be patient?"
I thought this was a poignant statement. When we ask for things from God we shouldn't just expect them straight out, we should look for different ways that he might deliver them to us. He might not outright grant us patience, but situations in which for us to use our patience. We all have it we just have to exercise it.
