I have cabin fever.  It has done nothing but continuously rain since Thursday nightI know we shouldn't complain -- so many people are deep in snow and cold.  We are thankful it wasn't cold enough for the rain to freeze, or we would definitely be in a mess!  This afternoon the rain slacked and we decided to go to Wally World.  It's pretty sad when going to Wally World is your entertainment!  We started at Home Depot.  Last year Home Depot in a nearby town closed and now another nearby Home Depot is closing.  We didn't need anything but just thought we would "look."  Couldn't help but think about the employees who will soon be in the unemployment line.  We then did a little shopping at Wal-Mart.  That's it -- that was our day for the most part.

Our thoughts and prayers have been with my cousin, Donna and her family, this week on the death of her 87 year old mother-in-law, Mildred, in Arkansas.  She was known for her wonderful smile and love for others and will be missed.

My brother should be landing in Little Rock just about now.  Last report I received he had not slept in two days and had made it through customs in Atlanta with all his bags.  I can't wait to hear all the details of his mission trip to India and see the pics.  I know last Sunday he was called on to speak to the congregation of a local church.  I am so proud of him and know he has been blessed on this mission trip and is looking forward to more trips.

We would like to say welcome to our new followers -- there are several -- and we are happy you found us and hope to provide more interesting things on our blog when we once again start traveling.  I am finally feeling more confident about blogging and trying new things.

Since I don't have any new pics to share, I thought I would post one from our trip to South Dakota last year.  

 Chapel in the Hills, Rapid City, South Dakota 

For more info on the Chapel in the Hills, check out our blog post of September 21, 2010. 

Until next time, God bless our family and friends, near and far.


  1. Great picture of the little chapel. Will be watching for a report on your brother's mission trip to India...and pictures!! My thoughts and prayers go out to your cousin.

  2. My sympathy to your cousin on the loss of her mother. A mission trip to India--wow, he must have come home exhausted but with many stories to share.

    I'd like to see that Chapel in the Hills in person!

  3. What a beautiful little chapel. We are also very interested in the mission trip to India so we will be watching too. So sorry to learn of your cousin’s mother-in-law passing way, your prayers will be a comfort to her family.
