RIng ~! Ring~! Ring~! it's 3:30 a.m.~!

This morning my cell phone was ringing next to my bed at 3:30 a.m. Couldn't read who was calling and was hoping it was good news.. I answered and it was Dave ~ he was downstairs using the land line.. He said "Come on down , the Royal Wedding is starting"... I grabbed my feather comforter , my phone, my glasses and went downstairs... I made a pot of coffee for us and poured us some of that hot coffee. Can't start my day without a good hot cup of coffee.. I settled down with my comforter and my cup of coffee in my recliner.. I'm so glad he got me up.. It was wonderful to see all the gathering of the people along the streets in London. Lots of flags waving, lots of people excited.. We got to see the whole thing from the beginning to the end...
It was fun to watch all the people arriving to the wedding who had gotten invitations. The ladies hats were fun to see and I wondered how in the world do they keep those hats on their heads.. The best hat was the hat that looked like a deer antlers. LOL.. When I was a small girl ~ women and men always wore hats..especially to church.. I think we should start that tradition back up. Kate and William were such a handsome couple.. Her dress was exquisite and flowed behind her so beautifully. I loved seeing the brothers before the wedding.. William and Harry in their uniforms and white gloves... So handsome. It was a great ceremony and I was so glad I got to watch it on TV, even if it was early in the morning. As we sat in the living room and the sun was rising, we watched the deer jump the fence south of our property. They were so graceful jumping over the fences...It was a great morning ~ watching royalty getting married and to see the love they have for each other. They make a great couple and it will be fun to watch with each new day they have with each other..
Today the sun was shining and it got pretty nice outside. Everything is so green .... With us going to Sweden in a few days ~ Dave is going to have the neighbor boy, Cole Flatland come and learn how to use our lawn tractor so he can mow the grass while we are gone. He is 15 now and well do just fine.. Can't believe he is 15 now, just seems yesterday he was 8... Time marches on whether we want it to or not.
I feel so bad for the people in the South with all those tornadoes. 160 tornadoes in just the month of April... Goodness to be,that is a lot. It's going to be a hard spring.. With all this rain we are getting and the farmers having a hard time getting into the fields to work the ground over and plant the seed. And the fires in Texas and the flooding in Vermont and other places.. Makes a person pray to God a little more . God has a plan and a timetable. Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the Lord's purpose that prevails.. Even when our plans flounder, if our heart's right God will still make things turn out for our good and His Glory. When it comes to God's guidance, here are some thing we need to know: First, ideas go away, but His direction stays. There's persistence in His leading; that's why time is on our side. Second: His direction is impossible to follow without His help. He plans it that way.. Without God you can do nothing.
Third: His direction usually begins with discomfort. Like an eagle that stirs up it's nest..... A baby eagle is shocked when it's mother forces it out of the nest, but that's when it finds it's wings. God Will Surprise You...~ ! He is with us everyday and we just need to pray and keep him close to our hearts.
Have a Tiggeriffic Day~! ta ta for now from Iowa:)

Hope you got a nap today after such an early start. I watched a little this evening and she looked beautiful.

I cried,and I don't even know the couple,but I guess the whole world feels like they know them,their lives have been made so public. I was thinking of Diana, and how proud she would have been.

I couldn't sleep because I was in a hotel in Portsmouth (for work) and the boats were so loud they kept me up. So I watched the wedding live, too, even though that's not my kind of thing. It was still fun to watch.

I got up yesterday around 5 to watch it and loved it--The hates were fun to see too, but what was with that hat that Princess Beatrice had on....

I hope you're having an enjoyable weekend!!! :-)
