Early Morning

Saturday, March 24, 2012

Lost 2 pounds! Whoo Hoo! Had to get up early to work at Pancake Breakfast. Alarm went off at 4 am..UGH Today I felt like I could have slept in. Set up display for work and then served pancakes, eggs, sausage and beverages. We had way over 1,000 people come through. Worked with co-worker and former co-worker. We had a blast. Better organized this year and it went smoother. Only ate a couple of sausage patties...was pretty tired of the smell of scrambled eggs and pancakes...ick! And normally I like them. Took lunch to hubby and mother in law as they were taking part of community garage sale at her retirement complex. She likes the social interaction.

Now they are closed up and guess hubby and I are heading to grocery stores for both households...ours and Mom. Her foot is still bumbed up....

Off to make the rest of the day GREAT!

Fabulous Friday

Friday, March 23, 2012

Got to walk during lunchtime most of the week...rainy today - we'll see. Wednesday was walking a long the trail and 4 deer popped up...guess I scared them and they scared me. Just love nature and walking during lunchtime seems to calm me and bring me back to center. It ends up being a praise time...oh God this is so pretty, the trees in bloom are so gorgeous. Saw a turtle sunning yesterday, Canadian Geese and ducks swimming on the pond. The red buds are so pretty and so are the bradford pear trees. Thank you God for all the beauty you have created. The birds songs are sweet music to my walking.

Working at the Farm Bureau Breakfast tomorrow. Last year we had over 1,000 people. They charge the price a farmer would get .50 for pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage, juice and coffee. It is a lot of fun. Setting up a display and doing a drawing for work. Hubby can't work it as Mom's place is having a garage sale and Mom enjoys having a table as long as we are there to help her.

Off to make it a great day!

    Nature is a wonderful surrounding for a nice walk. Many times I too, have enjoyed a nice hike with my hubby, especially when the weather was warm, but with a nice cool breeze.
I am glad to see you found a place to get away from the business of work. It is such a privilege to get along with God and to surrender to Him the cares of the day.
I pray that the Lord grace you with strength as you prepare for the breakfast scheduled for your community.
Blessings to you as you continue to meet your goals.

Terrific Thursday

Thursday, March 22, 2012

End of the day at work went crazy. But made it through leaving a little late. Got home and changed for Directory pictures at church. We were early and they had a late show so took us (hubby and I) and then Mom. She looked nice in a pretty rose top that we had purchased for Christmas time. She recently got a perm and hubby took her by the hairdresser and she had time to do Mom's hair and it looked nice for the picture. Hubby also took Mom and she got her driver's license renewed. Just had to take an eye test. Hubby and I were concerned that she wouldn't pass it and that it might upset her that she was really going downhill. She won't drive but just the thought that she now can't would upset her. But we don't have to cross that bridge yet.

We took her to a little restaurant afterwards. She seemed to enjoy it.

Slept a little better last night. Woke up at midnight and turned a fan directly on me. Don't like sleeping that way but seemed to help me sleep until the alarm. So maybe that is some way to help me get through the night better. Think I also need to start wearing ear plugs. Things seem to wake me up too! UGH!

Other co-worker supposed to be back to work today. Her daughter's been sick and then she was sick. Been kinda nice not having her around but at least her attitude is good!

Off to make it a great day!

Middle of the Week

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

Busy day! Hope to get in another lunchtime walk. Woke up early and after an hour of tossing and turning decided to just get up and do something.

Have Church Directory pictures tonight.

Been doing better this week and getting out into the yard a little while each evening.

Working Farm Bureau breakfast Saturday morning. Have to be there at 7 until after 1. Setting up display for work and helping cook and serve the food. Last year they had over 1000 people. We are busy but it goes by fast and is fun. Hubby spending day with Mom as their retirement complex is having a garage sale. She enjoys doing things there IF we do them with her.

Off to make it a great day!

    It was so beautiful yesterday and today, but don't you feel like we've sort of skipped spring and gone straight from winter to summer?

    With those kind of temps I'm sure it will be great. I'll trade you. We have 6c right now. That will probably be our daytime high. It started out nice & sunny but has since clouded over. At least it's dry. Let's me put in a full day in the garden. Enjoy your walk!
