THE SECOND DAY OF THE WORK WEEK AND A VISIT TO THE DOCTOR
I forgot to post this yesterday (or should I say earlier today) so here it is. So cute. I love the Peanuts characters. I hope we can get to the shore at least once this year. I didn't get to go at all last year.
Today was the second day of the work week. These guys are really moving. I think the parsonage is just about finished being painted. They are doing the walls, ceilings, window and door frames and baseboards. I took a peek and it is looking really pretty.
Our new pastor's wife and daughter came to Bible Study this morning. It was so good having them there and they added so much to the discussion. I am excited to have Carolyn there each week. As Joe says, it's great to be with people who are on the same page as you are.
I got lunch for everyone again today. I wish I could have taken a picture of it, but they came in and before I knew it, it was gone. Joe got some tri-colored grapes: red, green and black. They were so pretty in the little container they came in. I try to have fruit each day because the kids that are there love it. A lot of the adults do too. I also got ham, turkey and bologna, American and Swiss cheese. Three kinds of bread too: wheat, white and rye. There was one slice of rye left, a little bit of the lunch meat and cheese and that's about it. One of the ladies said how pretty everything was.
Tomorrow and Thursday I will be taking Joe to his doctor appointments so Jim and Dorothea will be taking over lunch. I'm trying to figure out what to do for Friday. I'm thinking of a hoagie salad, green salad and potato salad. We'll see.
I left early because I had a doctor appointment. I wanted to talk to Barbara (my nurse practitioner) about my latest blood test. It turned out great! Everything was good. But I am having some side effects from a couple of my medications so she tweaked them. I should be feeling better in a couple of weeks.
When I was finished I went back to church and picked up Joe. We are both tired, so we are having a low key night. Just what we both need.
Now it's off to make dinner. Ham steak, sweet potatoes and fresh green beans. Ah, I love summer meals with fresh picked veggies.
