It was such a blessing to hear his words of wisdom again.
He gave me plenty of advice about my new position at Rose Hill as the new Leader of Worship and Music. I am blessed to know such a wonderful man of God.
Thank you, Dr. Smith - for all the incredible things you have done to serve the Lord at Greystone. May you continue to be blessed as you serve Him each and every day.
On Friday I worked at the pharmacy from 3:30PM til closing. I must ask this: WHY MUST IT GET SO CHAOTIC WHEN I ARRIVE!? I know I have asked that question before but...good grief! Anyways, after getting home from working such a crazy shift I hit the sack! I was wiped out! Saturday morning I wake up to the sound of a vacuum cleaner and moving furniture. Why am I not surprised? My mom is a "real mean cleaning machine." Her weekends pretty much consist of cleaning the ENTIRE house. I'm thinking to myself, "Mom, you just cleaned the house like four days ago." She doesn't care...besides, Rollie and Leo have been itching a lot and mom found 2 or 3 fleas on BOTH of them. Yay.....that's exactly what we need in our house: a flea infestation. I had to pack my things to head over to Rose Hill for the weekend while mom shampooed the carpet in both living rooms (told you she was a cleaning machine). While on the way to Rose Hill I got myself a little pick-me-up at Starbucks ;) so what else is new? Hehehehehe. I arrived at my host home around 5:30PM just in time for me to unpack as they were about to head out to a dinner party. A couple of friends of theirs threw a dinner party that evening and they were planning to attend - and I got to watch the house and their little baby, of course. Hehe, my new friend - Tanner :)
We still don't know why his tongue hangs out like that...still absolutely adorable, though.
Sunday was simply AWESOME! We had a great time of worship and fellowship. After the service, the Price family (my host family) and the Pastor and his wife, and myself went out to eat at a nice Mexican restaurant. The Price's daughters came to visit as well. They were real sweet. After we all ate I decided to do some exploring. I took my camera out and went around the front yard and took dozens of pictures. Some of which were simply AMAZING!!! Check these out!
This is the house of a very nice elderly woman living next door to the Price's. Her name is Mrs. Anna Rae Murray. She told me when I first came to Rose Hill she would not mind me staying and visiting with her. In a house like that, you better believe I said YES! LOL!

Check out this HUGE garden spider. Not only was I freaked out (cuz I HATE spiders) but I was also amazed at how close I got with my lens.
Here's Tabatha - the Price family's pet cat just rollin' in the grass and enjoying life
Look at that pose!
She looks like a lioness on the hunt
Here are more awesome pics of that garden spider - this time with a meal
I thought it was so neat how I caught it spinning away
Look at all that silk! I think that is just so cool!
For all you gardening fans out there, these are for you
And one more critter pic for your viewing pleasure
I think it's a gecko :) look at him showing off his pink neck-thingy or whatever you call it LOL!
Well, that's been the story of my life for these past few days. I ended my evening last night with some wonderful hot tea. Mrs. Price is a tea lover :) I had some Earl Grey tea with honey before I went to bed. Tonight we will be having Praise Team Practice at church. YAY, my first practice with the team. Praying this will go real smoothly.
