any more into a weekend,
Let's see if I can do a quick review...
Friday evening we had Bible Study here.
It was a bit tricky for me because the little dog
that we are keeping was so loud
As soon as our song time was
done and Pastor Mike was ready to start the Bible
Study I ended up leaving the study and sitting
with the dogs.
Otherwise they would have
been just too distracting.
I will be so happy when
our friend gets a new place of her own and takes
this little pup back.
He is fine when it is all calm
and quiet here....
unless Warren or Mikey is in the
but crazy if anyone else comes.
Not exactly suitable for a
place called Hospitality Lane.
But then, I guess we are showing him
However, I am about done with that.
The whole party moved next door to Georgia's
house for refreshments following the Bible study.
That was pre-arranged because of my candle
business in the dining room and kitchen but also
worked out well for settling the dog.
Chelsea had made a brownie mocha trifle which
was eaten up quickly. There was just a tiny amount
left. Given how much she started with
I couldn't believe it!
One young man who is new to the church spent
the night with us Friday night and then hung out
with the boys all day on Saturday.
They had so much fun!
I hear that he and Jonathan were trying
to play Wii golf at 3:00 AM and just could not
sink their putts.
Apparently you lose skill as you get tired....
Chelsea worked eight hours in the bakery on
Saturday so we took advantage of the trip to
get her there and we went to the Cupola Cafe
on Route 30 for breakfast. It was wonderful!
Chelsea had a great day at work.
She LOVES this job.
I hoped she would.
She had some special customers.
Emma and Lindsay Rabe stopped in.
They made her work....
making a smoothie and a coffee drink.
She loved it!
I came home and made up a custom candle order.
A friend of ours has ordered a different candle design
each year for her Bible Study ladies. I always enjoy
coming up with something new and different for her.
But while this year's design is simple and easy I decided
to package it up in a special way.
So that took some time.
Time I enjoyed....just puttering.
Then it was time to feed the boys.
They had been playing hard and just enjoying snacks.
So enchiladas were requested.
I made two for each of them (including a
neighbor boy who had joined in the fun) and put them
in the oven. By then it was time to go back and
pick up Chelsea. So...we left instructions for the
guys to help themselves and headed out.
I wasn't feeling totally comfortable leaving as I
had just told Mikey to "get off the shed roof " and
the guys had a fog machine going and were playing
laser tag. Who knew what other wild ideas they
might hatch.....but Chelsea would be waiting so
off we went.
Sure enough, when we arrived at the bakery our
sweet daughter was waiting on the porch.
Apparently they had made record time in their
But she was happy.
This is a bigger blessing than you can imagine.
I would have thought she would have been falling
over with exhaustion but instead we were able to
go out for dinner and then to Lowe's to pick out
some lights for the bathroom.
One of ours kept
eating expensive halogen bulbs.
So, we found some
inexpensive fixtures that I like
and we are all lit up
Sunday morning found me in the kitchen making
macaroni and cheese to take to our annual Fall
Fest at Creekside Cottage. It was such a blast!
But first I had to make it through church. I got
such bad stomach pain at the piano that I was
afraid I was getting sick. Throughout the day
it came and went but over all I was fine. So
still managed to greatly enjoy the service and our
time together at the Rabe's.
You can read Deanna's post about that here.
After watching my new favorite show,
Undercover Boss, I headed to bed where I
was asleep in record time.
What a weekend.
But, I wouldn't trade most of it!
Just the pain in the stomach!
That is all......
So, I hope you had a great weekend
and that your week holds many special
