So Tired That I Forgot To Tell You.........

Saturday, December 20, 2014

We went to Elizabeth's Christmas Concert at St. Mary's School Thursday night. The students range from 4K to 8th Grade. They were about half way through the singing and the band playing and all had gone without a hitch. Then it was time for the 4K class to do their thing. Most of the students were 4 years old or close to it. A nativity scene was set up with a live cast of little ones. Baby Jesus was in the cradle. Mary and Joseph stood up to sing, when Mary caught her shoe on the cradle which swung back and catapulted Baby Jesus through the air. The second grade class was sitting in the front two rows waiting to sing their song when this happened. One of the little boys jumped up and caught Baby Jesus before he could hit the ground. There was a huge sigh from the crowd and then............EVERYONE BEGAN TO LAUGH!!! It must have lasted a full 3 minutes. Tears were rolling down people's cheeks. When we all settled down, the director of the program said that he had it all on tape if anyone wanted to order one. We ALL laughed again.

If you have ever been to programs where very little children are involved, there is always a good chance that you will be well entertained. We certainly were on Thursday night.

I am off to make cookies with my Grand-daughters............ emoticon

It Is 10 PM And I Am Finally Writing My Blog

Friday, December 19, 2014

I left the house about 9:30 this morning. I stopped at a friend's home to drop off a Christmas present and then drove on to the Hospital for my yearly mammogram. When I was finished with that, my DH and I drove to a city about 40 miles away to have lunch with a couple we used to teach with and then to finish some Christmas shopping. We arrived home about 4 and I proceeded to bake some sugar cookies for Elizabeth to decorate tomorrow. She will share them with her classmates on Monday. I also made two double-batches of two different kinds of Sugar Cookies for us to roll out and frost and decorate tomorrow at our son's home. The girls will help us decorate so I think that I will wear full-body protective gear!!! It is messy, but always fun!!! We are also invited for supper so my DH will join us around 6. Then on Sunday, our DIL, Elizabeth, and I will go to the Nutcracker. Elizabeth's Ballet Instructor is in the production, so we will drive about 45 miles to see her.
I am very tired tonight, so will stop for now and head for bed.
Have a Great Weekend.......... emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hi Patti, emoticon
Sure sounds like it is going to be a really fun and enjoyable weekend! Schools in this area has already started their winter break today.
I am sure I would enjoy the Olbrich Gardens in WI if I ever get a chance to visit.
Take care & God bless you & yours!

Another Busy Day..........

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Today isn't as CRAZY BUSY as yesterday was, but there is still a lot to do. This morning I caught up with my laundry and managed to give our DDog a haircut. This is a job that I don't mind, but our Cairn Terrier HATES it. I think that what he really has a problem with is the sound of the shaver. He definitely shies away from motor noises at all levels. Anyway, I finally finished, and he doesn't look half bad. He is a smart little guy and I think that he has figured out that if he cooperates, the dreaded cutting won't last as long. Yaaaay!!!!! When I am finished Sparking, I want to make a batch of Sugar Cookie dough and put it in the refrigerator to chill while we are at Elizabeth's Christmas concert tonight. We have to be there around 6 in order to reserve a place to sit. Our son is in Minnesota for a business meeting and won't make it to the concert, so we will be in charge of taping it for him. Elizabeth has a speaking part and will be singing two songs, so is really excited!!! She and Nola had supper with us last night, and when she left with her Mom around 8 PM, she ran back to the house and hugged both my DH and me, and told us that she was SO GLAD that we were coming to her concert. It means so much to children to be able to look out into the audience and spot their families looking so proud. She has learned to sign and always signs I LOVE YOU before the music and speaking starts. I love being a Grandmother just as much as I love being a mother..........maybe even a bit more. Those of you who are Grandparents will know exactly what I mean.
I hope you are having a great day.

I'm Leaving Soon..........

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

This is a CRAZY BUSY day. I must leave in just a few minutes for a PT session; followed by lunch with a former college roommate who is on her way to a city about 80 miles North of here and will meet me at a restaurant at noon which is close to the Hospital where I have the session; then it is on to a dentist appointment; then shopping for the ingredients I need to make Christmas Cookies with Elizabeth; then I will pick Elizabeth up from school; and Nola from Daycare; then home for playtime with the girls followed by supper. My DIL will pick them up around 8 PM and I will FALL into bed!!!!! YIKES!!!!!

    Busy days are frantic at the time - and usually joyous in retrospect. Think especially of that special luncheon with that dear friend and then getting the supplies for baking with your family and the closeness of sharing time - and flour and messes - in the kitchen. Be sure to have you DH take pictures. And when these days are over you will have fabulous memories that no one can take from you. These days will never come again. You can always sleep and recuperate later.

I Was So Embarrassed!!!!!

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

I have been doing Spine and Hip exercises twice/day for about an hour each session. This morning, my DH and DDog were out and about running errands, so I decided to take advantage of their absence and do my exercises in the middle of the living room floor where there is more room to stretch out. I was still in my flannel pajamas, but decided to do the exercises and then take my shower. Let me preface this by telling you that we live in the country, at the end of a long driveway, through a woods and at the top of a hill. In other words...........we are remote. I put on my music.........loud.........and began the exercises. My dog is usually my alarm when someone drives up the driveway, but he was gone!!! I am right in the middle of a bridge exercise to strengthen my tusch, when I thought I caught movement. I figured it was just a bird so I carried on. Then I looked up from the height of my exercise to the window and there was a face!!!!! I screamed............he screamed..........and then we both started laughing..........me out of total embarrassment and he out of having caught me in a very unflattering pose!!!!! It was the UPS man. I went to the door and opened it just enough for him to slide the delivery in and then I watched him laugh all the way back to his truck.

Lesson Learned............Exercise in a room without a big picture window............especially when you are home alone!!!!!

Oh well..........we both enjoyed a good laugh to start our day!!!
