Today we had to bring the car in for an inspection so around lunch time we got bagels (a treat) and headed out. The mechanic's place was right near snake park so we walked over to eat our lunch and hang till they called us.
A yellow jacket wanted some Formula 50 (my favorite flavor) but we didn't let him have it. Then Esther read to me from "Charlie and the Glass Elevator". And of course the kids had to ride the baby swings. It was fun.
Oh yea, the car failed the inspection!!! It needs some work first. LOL What a life!

There's a song with that title "Tuesday Afternoon" do you know it??? We went to the library today - can you believe I got there before my books were due - unbelievable!! The library may be free but I've paid my dues over and over.

This is honestly my third attempt to get this blog to go in order and I just have no more patience so, enjoy the story and the pictures in any order you wish.
Today we did some cooking and baking. Daniel wanted to make this cookie called "Bittersweet Chocolate and Peppermint Sandwiches" from a Christmas Cookies magazine I just bought. (I must admit I buy one each year - the cookie addition, my one indulgence!!). As you can see the boys were helping me. Esther and Dad were at church. We didn't go because of boy's lack of sleep issues over the weekend.
In pix 2 - Isaiah cracked the egg at the wrong time!!! lol. This cookie had specific measurement requirements - as you see Daniel measuring.

The wedding of Bracey's friend Sheldon was lovely. It began in a rush for me though. Bracey was a groomsman and I had to drop him off at the church at 8:45. He told me the wedding was at 10:30, enough time to go the the drug store to buy nylons, get home and get dressed. I was fast but at 9:58 Bracey called me and said "Laura, I made a mistake the wedding is going to start in 7 minutes". OK, rush, rush, rush. I left the house (without the camera!!!) and got to the church at 10:19. And guess what? The wedding didn't start until 10:45. I went home after the service to get the camera before heading to the reception which was in Queens.
The ceremony was beautiful. The pastor gave a perfect message and charge to the bride and groom. The food at the reception was delicious and the atmosphere delightful. Here are the pictures - enjoy.

We were so blessed by God to see Peter come out of his episode with no foreseen problems we had a candlelight dinner. Thanks Mom and Dad for starting that tradition when I was a young girl. It is so much fun and relaxing. Of course I included a picture of Petey!!!
"God is good, all the time. Put a song of praise in this heart of mine."
