Helping with the 4 year olds and still have patience & fun! Easy for me. The other lady was pulling & pushing them & chasing them & yelling at them and even licking chocolate off them. She's a child psychologist.

I volunteered at two different libraries this week.
sure does feel good to help. I donated $ to a nephew riding in a multiple sclerosis bike ride and another nephew who has cancer & needed a little extra to go to a special cancer hospital in another state.

Volunteered at the thrift shop. Learned to not speak first, but to listen and chat. There were several regulars. I was told to get to know them. One man even came back and showed us a photo album of his wife-she had died 3 years ago.

went for a walk & saw some friends. I walked with the little one (3 yr old) & got an interval workout! Then we saw another family friend. They kicked a ball around with us. Before I knew it, I'd gone 7,000 steps. My friend said! you went over a mile!emoticon

My friend had a hole in her purse by the handle. I mended it. When I reinforced it with some extra material, I put an extra pocket in it too. I really don't sew, but I think she will like it, since she can't afford a new one.

The thing that motivated me the most for getting rid of things, Edelweiss33, is that we want to move this year. You'd be surprised what you're willing to get rid of when you think you may be moving soon. emoticon

My project for the next couple days will be to stamp some 4th of July themed notecards to send to a group that sends cards & letters to wounded soldiers.

Had a garage sale last weekend, and only sold a portion of the stuff. We were wanting to shed a lot of stuff. I donated boxes of books to the library, boxes of clothing & dishes to the 2nd hand store....ended up donating all the rest of the stuff to a church (who has been having a rummage sale for the last couple of weeks.) It felt good to get rid of what I needed to, plus give to others. None of it was what I would call "junk". We have just lived here several years and accumulated lots of stuff.

Last night, I learned that 30 families were scheduled to attend the command picnic that is today but only 6 people signed up to bring food. I made 2 gallons of homemade potato salad, a gallon of pasta salad and 2 pineapple upside-down cakes. That ought to feed a couple of people....LOL
