Fast Weekend

Where does the time go?  Our weekend just slipped away.

Friday we did not go back to the YMCA.  We went to a funereal of someone in our church.  Friday night our SS class had a party. Howard started teaching this class in the fall.  It was for people that haven't been in Sunday School.  The class has been going well.  There were 16 of us at the party.  We had a covered dish meal first and then played, Catch Phrase and then had a Swap Party.  We all brought items that were still good, but we didn't have a need for them any more.  We played it like we would a White Elephant party or a Dirty Santa.  It was a fun evening.  We all sat around and shared storied and laughed the evening away!

Saturday, we had some errands to run. We first went to Wood Craft and Howard bought a 14" band saw.  We spent some time there getting what he needed.  Our church is participating in "Buckets of Hope", for Haiti.  We have certain items that we need to put in a white 5 gallon bucket.  It will feed a family for a week.  Our problem is finding white 5 gallon buckets with lids.  We got a lead on where to get some, that I will check on tomorrow. We went several places and they are all sold out.  Our SS class if also putting a bucket together. Larry had given us a coupon toward dinner at Stoney River (steak place).  It didn't open until 4:00 so had to wait for that time to come.  It was a wonderful steak dinner.  We have seasons tickets to Lamplighter Theater and this was the last weekend for "Father of the Bride."  When yesterday got so long we decided we would go this afternoon.  When we got home I remembered we couldn't go this afternoon, so we went last night.  It was a good play.  Some of friends were there, so we sat together.

Today was the usual SS and church.  This afternoon we had a special business meeting at church.  Our building committee  presented the latest plans for our building. Today was the discussion and time to ask questions.  We will vote next Sunday. 

Our snow is all gone, and it was very nice out today.  Won't be long and our bulb plants will be coming up!


  1. Our snow is melting but not gone yet...quite a bit is still around even thought it was in the low fifties today.

  2. I think we got up to 39º today. That seemed like a lot going on this weekend.



Ending 2017

It has been awhile since I have blogged, so I thought I would just do a catch up.  We had Thanksgiving at our house this year  Brett, Lauri...
