Each person should judge his own actions and not compare himself with others. Then he can be proud for what he himself has done. Galatians 6:4

Summer is coming.. this past weekend I could feel it. I had the desire to actually be outside and rake and bring the summer furniture out! Although the grass is still brown and the leaves are wet and everywhere I could see some green sprouting up!! My snapple cap fact tells me that "Your eye expands up to 45% when looking at something pleasing." I wondered if it looked like my eye balls were going to fall out of my head this weekend? In Psalms 19:14 "May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord my rock and my redeemer." I was surely praising him that the weather was getting warmer and that meant that the flowers would be back, the butterflies, and no oil bills!! Today however, it was COLD!! Low 40's but because I have faith that spring and summer will come I started my trek back on our track again! My town has the most awesome TRACK!! Some women find bubble baths to be relaxing.. I find a good walk and a light jog with my MP3 player to be LUSCIOUS!!! The town finally took the chains off the track and it is open to the public... I grabbed my sneakers ( well broken in) and scarf and MP3 player and headed to the track only to find the high school track team down there!! UGH!! Well, I didn't turn back.. I walked with the best of them.. however I didn't jog.. I'm hoping that's for the next time..
Baseball season has officially begun in my home.. Major's for my son.. Varsity softball for my daughter.. and of course... the FIRST RED SOX game tonight played.. me.. NO interest in the Major stuff.. but always willing and ready for the home stuff!! Fortunately for me.. the track and the practice fields are at the same park!! Need I say more..?? Ü Here's a recipe I found on the web.. www.cooks.com Looks yummy.. if you try it .. let me know!!

The warm weather has got me excited too, I can't wait! Softball season will be starting for me in a couple of months. I play on two teams. One in Monroe, and one in Redford with my church. And it's something that I have to do during the summer, otherwise I go through withdrawels. LOL. Then it's soccer for Lexi and T-Ball for Jordan. This summer is going to be busy, but a lot of fun!
