Weekend Rewind

Weekend Rewind
(the continued version)



A fun-filled weekend..continued....oops

Friday was our high school's homecoming.  It was a football game between two big rivals-has always been that way.  Hub and I open the coffee shop after every home football game and this Friday was no exception.  The way the football game was going :(, we both figured we wouldn't have a big crowd.  Wrong-we did.  I thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere of the coffee shop after a football game.  All just come and relax while eating homemade cakes. pies, and of course our special coffee.  It is just a place to recap the game and talk about the week.  Hub and I got home at 1 that morning.  Both of us unwind and then to bed at 2 in the morning.

Saturday was our Community Festival-normally called our Apple Festival-name changed and won't go into detail about that~sigh.  Up at 6 to begin baking rolls-hub and I fixed 90 country ham biscuits.  All had to be cleaned up to get ready for the parade.  Our SCA-Studen…

1. It's fall. Y'all. My favorite season of the year! What's something you love to do this time of year that makes you feel it's officially fall? And unrelated to that, do you ever say-'y'all'?

It certainly feels like fall with our cooler temps these past few nights.  I love decorating our yard for fall-which I did this past weekend.  Most definitely say y'all-I am from the south, y'all.

2. When did you last have a falling out with someone? Has it been resolved?

I can't remember the last time I had a falling out with someone-must be resolved by now.

3. A song you love with the word 'fall' in it's title?
"When I fall in love" the first song that popped into my head.

4. What's something you've recently let 'fall by the wayside?'

Some of my paper work-ugh!

5. When did you last attend an event, read a book, watch a movie, try a new recipe, or visit a shop-town-tourist attraction that fell short of your expectations? …

1. On Thursday we pause to remember a dark day in history-9/11. Will you mark it in some special way?

This day will make me realize how vulnerable we are at any given moment while humbly asking God to forgive our country.

2. Do you ever/still...listen to an actual radio? Watch a videotape (VCR)? Look up a number in a phonebook? Refer to a paper map while traveling? Set an alarm on an alarm clock as opposed to your phone?

Yes, I listen to a radio, matter of fact, just last Friday listened to the football game on the radio, I still look up numbers in a phone book, still use a paper map, and I still set an alarm clock!  Call me ole fashion but I still use all of these.  The only one I very seldom use is the VCR-even though I still have one.

3.  Is it ever a good idea to discuss religion or politics with people you don't know?

I don't mind discussing religion with stranger and I have ocassionally done so.  I would never discuss politics with people I do no know.

4. What's a dish y…

Friday evening was our first high school football game at home.  It was a very hot day.  How hot?  Our school system dismissed two hours early due to the hear-not all classrooms have AC.  Teachers stayed until 3:00-I know some complained, but I on the other hand didn't mind.  I was able to get some teacher 'stuff' done.  Anyway, like I mentioned, the day was hot!  Hub and I planned on opening up the coffee shop after the game for desserts (homemade cakes and fried pies), coffee, and soft drinks.  Around 6:00, the rain came.  Around 7:00 the rain stopped and a gorgeous rainbow appeared in the sky-God's beauty never ceases to amaze me-just hated I didn't have camera with me.  Ballgame began on time and all was good. Hub and I listened to the ballgame on the radio while we did some last minute things. People (not as many as hoped for) came to the coffee shop afterwards.  Mush Much to my surprise, some football players came and ordered pizza.  Yes, …

1.  What's something you wanted to do this summer that you never got around to actually doing?

More traveling-I wanted to see so many places but didn't get around to it-sigh


2. Share a favorite memory of your own back -to-school days as a child.

Being all dressed up in new school clothes and shoes, and anxiously waiting on the school bus while in elementary school. I had missed my friends (would go and spend the summer in Baltimore) and couldn't wait to see them.  The first day of school was always filled with excitement. Later in high school (no such thing as middle school in my day and time), getting all dolled up to see if you could see that special someone you might have had a crush on.  Dashing through the halls trying to find the right class and desperately trying to open your locker without anyone noticing you were having difficulty.
This weekend I visited my high school.  Much talk was centered around-wish we could go back.  I replied, I would only go back if it was…

Weekend started on Friday evening with a 'Ladies Night'-as we call it-at a good friend's house. A long, lost friend joined us from Florida.  This person has had some health issues, and we were all thrilled she could join us.  Much laughter, food, and memories were shared.  When I returned home, hub was sitting outside.  It was a hot August night so hub and I sat and talked until the wee hours of the morning.  Well I did most of the talking telling him about 'ladies night/ A great evening.

Saturday I attend my ole high school for our Shaker Reunion.  The high school is no longer known as the Shakers-consolidation many years ago and for the past four years a bunch of us Shakers have gotten together for a reunion.  Not many people have attended as in years past.:(  Tears were shed as the list of loved ones keeps growing-lives taken away way too soon.

We kept 'little man' this weekend.  His father was playing in a golf tournament, and we keep him …
