The Weekend

This has been one lazy weekend! Yesterday the only productive thing I did was laundry - and that was done before 8am! We had absolutely nothing else planned for the day and that's exactly what we did.

There was lots of cross stitching, computer reading, and TV watching going on, but that's it. Oh, and yes, to end the day, we sat by the fire with neighbors for a bit as well.

This morning we got up and readied ourselves to go to early service in anticipation of Russ & Pat getting here this evening. Well, just a half hour before we left for church, Pat called and told Randy they weren't coming because of concern about Tropical Storm Ida. I couldn't believe how disappointed I was!! So, I called back to see if there was any way they could just delay a couple of days and come later in the week. I talked to Russ and he said they were talking about that and would get back to us.

We went on to church and once again, found it to be uplifting and soul-satisfying. The family pastor spoke today and he brought another great message. Yes, I think we've found a home. There is a information class next Sunday and we plan to attend.

Russ & Pat called while we were in church to let us know they decided to sit tight where they are and come here on Wednesday. YAY!!! I am so delighted with this decision. They have become such precious friends and I so want to spend time with them. Now, let's pray that Ida doesn't do anything weird to spoil these plans.

We were going to have Russ & Pat in for dinner this evening so I had planned crockpot enchiladas. Since I'd already had all the ingredients ready, I went ahead and made it anyway. It's been a while since we've had it and I'd forgotten how good it is. :) We ate about 4:30 so that we could be ready for the ice cream social at 6pm.

As usual the ice cream social involves what else? lots of socializing! :) We even had music this evening by some folks in the park. A nice way to end the evening.

Now, we're back home, relaxing in our recliners and settled for the night. The next couple of days will be interesting as we watch Ida's progress.

Until the next time . . .


  1. Glad you found a good church! Those things are hard to come by.

  2. You all stay safe with Ida heading your direction. We are in Pine Mountain, Georgia and we should get some of the results (mostly rain) of the storm but not like your area.
