Some happenings....

Image
I have neglected writing for a while.  Not that I have meant to, but other things have kept me busy.

First-our little business is coming along.  Three months ago this is what it looked like....










Now it is beginning to take on our character....

Walls are all wood
Siding has been replaced, furniture has been built, and chairs have been refurnished.  Yeah!!!  Plans on to open by August/September.  Just in time for school--like I need something else during this time.


Week of June 18 was a full week of Bible School.  We had over 100 children each night.  A true blessing.
Me and 'little man' had 19 children in his age group (3/4 year olds)

This week I have had dental and doctor appointments.  I will not schedule dental and doctor appointments in the same week, that is if I can help it ever!

30-Day Challenge

Hum.

I miss seeing my parents at a young age and I miss so many 'things' I did as a kid.

My father passed away at a very young age-47 to be exact.  I miss so many things/talks we shared.

Today so many children do not know how to communicate or even play.  There were so many games I played as a kid that did not require any type of technology--examples_  Kick the Can, Dodge Ball, Red Light Green Light, Mother May I, Red Rover-.  Today as I watch children play-they don't know how.

I also missing actually communicating with a person-not texting or listening to a pre-recorded message.

June 20th  I will be celebrating my 32nd anniversary.



 Oh, I do remember my wedding day.  In this picture, I am telling my father, Are you ready for this?

It was a very hot June day.  The church did not have any AC then.  Every time the windows were open the candles would go out.

My two flower girls-my aunt's daughter on the left-and my uncles's daughter-also named after me on the right.  Both girls did great.

Our reception was held in a restaurant.



I remember telling hub he had sweat dripping off his nose!!



30 Day Challenge-Looking Forward

Looking forward....

Now that I am a little beyond mid-life, I am looking forward to so many things.  I would love to travel-and unfortunately hub is very content staying in our small town.  On the other hand, I want to see the world.

I am also looking forward to our little business adventure-hub and I plan the Grand Opening in September.  A lot of sweat and muscle power has been used on this little adventure.

I am looking forward to writing the last check to colleges for daughters--YEAH!!!  Being debt free would be great.

I am looking forward to the rest of my summer vacation, and along with that the beginning of a new school year.

OCD---

I am about cleaning up a mess.  I constantly am picking up something, sweeping up a mess, cleaning the dishes.  I know many think I am crazy, but I straighten up my house a lot.

A picture I love:

How about two pictures---The first is of my two daughters-I am so proud of all their accomplishments.


The next picture is of the family.  Relay for Life is one of the organizations we truly hold close to our heart since the 'C' word has now become part of our family.

Weekend Rewind

Image
.
The weather did cooperate on Saturday-a no rain day.  It was rained so many days here, and we have not had a rain free weekend in months.  I realized many places may be experiencing drought conditions, but not here.

Our building is progressing-a business venture we have planned.  So Friday we cleaned up a couple of rooms which took hours and hours and much muscle power and sweat.

Saturday the sun was shinning!!  Hub wanted to have shrimp on the grill.




We had a few people over to enjoy the shrimp and other stuff.

Later, hub's mother wanted to come back over.  Hub's mother only weights 90lbs-probably that is stretching it a little, and she is 77 years old.  Her back had been hurting and daughter and boyfriend said they would go and help her to come back over.  This is what I saw when I looked up..

daughter's boyfriend was carrying her.  And he is smiling!!!  :)  A priceless picture.

We all enjoyed the night!

Wishing all a blessed week!

A picture of my friends:


These are my college friends, roommates, and sorority sisters.  Two live in Georgia and one lives in Florida.  Gosh-we still were able to catch up right where we left off.  Much has changed over the years, but I truly love these gals!
