I took yesterday off from work. It was so nice to regroup and get myself centered again. Work has been so awful. The kids have been little monsters. The last hurrah before going back to school? I took away computer time from some of them and told others to leave because of their behavior. They, of course, laughed at me and did whatever they wanted to. Oh the joys of being acting librarian while your boss is at lunch.
And then to top it off last Thursday I had a disagreement with one of my employees who is questioning my authority as her supervisor. Now she is not speaking to me nor acknowledging my presence. Needless to say the tension is immense.
So I really needed a day off from work. And yesterday was just what I needed. I celebrated my favorite month of the whole year -- September.
I had plans for the whole day and of course nothing turned out the way I expected. Do they ever?
I began the day by changing out all the towels, washcloths and bath puffs in the bathroom. They went from white to a lovely yellow, gold and green. It looks so nice.
Then it was on to teaching the Ladies' Bible study. Another great study in Galatians. This week it was Galatians 3:1-9 and the topic was faith. Wow! It was so good and I didn't have to run off to work so we stayed an extra half hour just talking things over.
Then Debbie came back to my house and cut about 2 1/2 inches off of my hair. It feels and looks so much better. I am hoping that without all that weight it won't fall out so quickly. I've been getting handfuls of hair every morning when I brush and comb it. Without it being so long hopefully it won't get as tangled.
Joe and I then dropped Debbie off and went to Shop Rite to do our weekly food shopping. It was our usual 2 hour trek though that huge store. But we got a lot of things we needed (and some things we wanted, too). And when I was finished putting the groceries away I took a nice long nap. Ah!!! I could easily do that every day. I always feel so much better when I get up. My energy level is back.
I made our now second annual September first dinner of spare ribs. We don't get them often since they are so expensive, but I am making this an annual thing. We also got some tortellini salad that is store made and delicious. And I put on the plate some of those new Lays truffle potato chips. In my opinion they are the best chips ever made. I had gotten butternut squash soup too, but it was way too hot for it. We had a day with temperatures in the 90s.
We had some pumpkin spice tea that I got in Lancaster in July. It was good, but Joe liked it more than I did. I think it will grow on me though.
We had bought some pumpkin doughnuts for dessert, but were so full that we couldn't eat them. Oh, well, today's another day.
Back to work today and it went really fast. I had some catching up to do and end of the month reports so I was busy the whole day. And since Liz left early, and Boss had to leave at 5 p.m., I was boss for the last hour. Oh the power! NOT.
Tonight was the first Bible Study/Prayer Meeting of the year. I'm glad to be getting back to this even though it makes for a long day.
So it looks as if the Fall things are starting to fit into place. A new month and in three weeks a new season. Although I love Fall, I do NOT love Winter and am not looking forward to that. I will be doing some Fall stuff all month and will take pictures to show you as I go along. Here's to putting away the Summer things for another year and getting out the golds, browns and oranges.
Hope you had a good September Morn. I can't wait to share things with you this month!
