.Dog Days of Summer.

I suppose it is not technically summer, but in our home it is! Cadi is done with preschool and the living is eeeeasy. {grin} Well, that is not really true either. We have been busy, busy, busy here organizing and tagging items for our adoption fundraiser yard sale this Saturday and on Memorial Day. We have been blessed with so many donations!! I keep telling myself that I have to take photos, and I will.... The weather forecast for our yard sale looks perfect, and I have just been bathing it in prayer. I am so very excited to see what God will do, and to come back here and share it with you all on Tuesday.

Speaking of dogs... (remember my title?)

She has made herself at home here. She wandered onto our front porch this morning (and even was upstairs in our house (!!) at one point as I unloaded more donations). I have contacted her vet via the number on her rabies tag, and they are going to hopefully help us find her owners. We should receive a phone call sometime this evening. She is the sweetest, calmest dog - an older dog, I think. Right now, my Cadi is out on our back porch whispering sweet nothings into the dog's ear and patting her lovingly. Jim seemed rather smitten when he came home for lunch as well, and instructed me to lock the dog into our back yard. I have given her cold water and a few slices of bread. Cadi prayed before nap that we could keep her. She has named her Pretty. Oh my.

What kind of dog is she? I thought she may have some boxer in her.

I am feeling as disheveled as this post is becoming. It is hot here - 90 degrees, dry and beautiful. I couldn't be happier. We started our eight hour online training courses for our adoption last night. We have printed out our home study packet and need to jump in. I am nervous about the amount of paper work, but I am also anxious to get things rolling. I have been dreaming of meeting my baby. For a while I had been having nightmares about horrible orphanages, but those have melted into sweet dreams about my child. I am glad for that.

I need to apologize. I did not get a chance to read the Momentous Monday entries yesterday. I feel really bad about that, but I will read them. I love that people participate, and I love reading what you write!! Again things have been busy, busy here. I am also behind on sending thank you emails to those who have donated money and purchased coffee. Forgive me. I am carving out time tomorrow morning. We so appreciate the generosity that has been shown to us. I continue to be amazed. I don't want to seem ungrateful in anyway, because I am most definitely not.

I have not been able to keep up with my emails either, and that really bothers me. I love that so many of my readers take the time to email me. Lately I have been receiving a lot of questions regarding our adoption. To help aid me in answering the questions, I am going to do another question and answer post. I have done a few in the past, and have gotten great feedback. So if you have any questions feel free to email me amomentcherished(at)gmail(dot)com or just leave your question here in the comment section. In a few days I will answer them in a post. I suppose it doesn't have to be about adoption either. {grin}

Alrighty friends, have a beautiful day. You are a blessing.

What a lovely pooch and a nice visitor for the kids! We dog sat a few weeks ago and the kids LOVED it! I enjoyed the doggy too... Maybe someday down the road when the kids are much older we'll get another dog... a little dog.... but for now I'm happy just to watch them once in a while!

Enjoy the hot weather! Looks like it should be a pretty nice weekend for a yardsale! I'm planning on baking my cookies tomorrow for the bakesale! :)

Wow. It is hot in your neck of the woods! It has been in the lower 80s here and I'm already feeling a little too warm. Well, being pregnant makes it different for me, I guess. Enjoy the lazy and not-so-lazy days. Each one is a gift from Him and guided by His hand.
