Most Embarrassing Moment of the Weekend:I put this as my personal Facebook status. Here is what happened... I just felt like all my blogger friends needed to know. Why? Because you need to smile today. And if that is at my expense, that is okay with me! Haha!
THE PARKING LOT SCENE
*Enter Lana and Ben walking across parking lot, Lana holding a small vase of flowers.*
- Truck drives up.
- Lana drops her phone in front of big truck. She hurriedly stoops to pick it up.
- Ben waves a thank-you wave to truck driver for waiting while Lana picks up phone.
- Lana stands up and isn't watching where she is going. Slams into and bounces off of Ben. Water sprays everywhere from vase, wets Lana's phone and shirt and pants and face and hair and glasses.
- Lana and Ben start to laugh and their faces turn really red. They wonder if the truck driver thinks they are an act from the Three Stooges.
*Exit Lana and Ben, Lana covering face saying "I am SO embarrassed for the rest of my life..."*
The Moment I Learned the Most:We planted a few different plants I think back at the beginning of April. One of them was a wisteria vine. I was really hoping to get it to grow along the dog fence to make it look pretty! Well, I waited and watered and waited some more, and nothing. Everyone who looked at it said it was probably dead. So what do I do? I find my Tractor Supply receipt and decide I will just take that little dead twig in and get my money back. So I go out to the twig and start to pull and pull and PULL!! Then snap... out pops the twig. Of course there is a small very ALIVE bit of growth, slowly vining it's way up the dead twig part. Isn't that just how life is? We try really hard to be patient. We wait and wait. But sometimes we can't bear to wait anymore and we rip out that seemingly lifeless last shred of hope by the roots. And of course, we find, it was growing all along. We just needed to have a little faith. Naturally, I felt pretty sheepish. Ben helped me to loosen the dirt and put the twig back in and I watered it well. Maybe it will live! I love gardening because of things like this. God uses his creation to teach his children. Lesson learned. This story applies to my life right now so much that it is kind of scary. Wow.
Funniest Moment:I have been constantly amazed that Mrs. Potts still has all 9 of her babies alive and well, even while free ranging all day around cats and dogs. Well, now I know why. I was watching our little fat calico Siri stalk Mrs. Potts and her chicks. She pounced halfheartedly, obviously not intending to actually catch any of them but just enjoying seeing them run. Well Petrie was having NONE of that. Up he comes, squawking, tail flared, and chases Siri across the yard and into the woods so far I couldn't see them anymore. I just stood there and laughed! What an awesome rooster!
Okay, I think that does it for best weekend moments. Be sure to share a few of yours!
