Yard Sale-ing, Etc.

Two friends and I had a yard sale on Saturday that turned out really good. I didn't have any big items but still did okay. One of my friends had some furniture (one piece of which I bought) and made a lot more than I did. We had lots of fun, strengthened our friendship, and made some "mad" money besides. God was good to us and sent lots of people to shop. I was so tired and grimy at the end of the day but being so tired, I sat down and slept. When I awoke, I was still so tired that I didn't have energy to get a bath. ha. Who cared?! It was a wonderful weekend with great services at church twice yesterday and out to eat with the bunch after church for both lunch and dinner. I love my church family! Just wanted to check in but don't have anything more to report. So, until next time, I love you Steve, Angela, Meredith, Ethan, Emily, Mitch, Jawan, Andrew, Luke and Stuart. Mom.

And I did...

I'm running out of creative titles for my blogging, can you tell?!. ha. Maybe I'll have a brainstorm before the next one and it will be more interesting. I've had a busy but enjoyable weekend. On Saturday morning, two friends and I went yard sale shopping, had breakfast at Hardees and afterwards headed out to Tallahassee to the big flea market they have seven days a week. After meandering for about an hour, we went to the Tallahassee Mall, windowshopped, ate lunch, and went to the movie titled "Undecided." It was a Christian movie and was very good. Last night I stayed home and watched the Braves and Georgia Bulldogs play (like last weekend, they were on at the same time so my recall button got another good workout). Both won, so the day was a total success! Today being Sunday, I was in church twice and loved every minute of it. This afternoon, I cleaned out my storage room in preparation for a yard sale of my own this coming weekend. The two friends that were with me on Saturday are also joining in with their "stuff." I'm sure Friday night will be spent with the three of us going through each other's wares to see what we want to confiscate before the sale. I'm so thankful for the blessings God showers upon my life in the form of family, friends, food, home, church, job, and other material things that make life more comfortable. I certainly do not deserve any of them but am so thankful HE loves me in spite of my sinfulness. As I age, I desire more and more to be what HE wants me to be. So, I'll keep trying. Until next time, I love you Steve, Angela, Meredith, Ethan, Emily, Mitch, Jawan, Andrew, Luke and Stuart. Mom.

Labor Day, Etc.

My Labor Day weekend was good despite not having any of my children/grandchildren at my house. On Saturday morning, my friend (Ramona) and I hit the yard sales until about 9:00 a.m. and had breakfast at Hardees as usual. In the afternoon, I went to my great-nephew's 2nd birthday party, watched the Georgia Dogs beat W. Kentucky, and went to the Labor Day Sing at the City Auditorium that night (Gold City, Dove Brothers and Simple Faith). Wow, were they all great!!! Sunday was spent as usual: Church that morning, out to lunch with a group from church, rest in the afternoon, back to church that night, and out to Dairy Queen after church with the group. As most of you were, I was off on Monday and spent the whole day laboring. ha. Vacuumed, mopped, washed dishes, washed clothes, picked up clutter, dug holes and planted two Sago Palms that I bought on Saturday, and topped the day off by watching the Braves shut out the Mets and Florida State beat Miami. (They were on at the same time, but I caught every bat and every play, thanks to the "recall" button on my remote. ha) I talked to both of my girls during the day, and they too were staying home (gas prices almost demand it) and enjoying their families. I didn't talk to Stuart until tonight, but he rounded out the brood and I'm so thankful they all three had a good weekend. So many of my prayers have been and are being answered for all of them. God is good!!! It was work as usual for me today but I enjoy my job and look forward to going. Don't have anything special going on this week or for the weekend, so guess I'll have to conjure up something. So, until next time, I love you Steve, Angela, Meredith, Ethan, Emily, Mitch, Jawan, Andrew, Luke and Stuart. Mom.
