A BUSY DAY
Some weeks you just feel that way. After having a fairly relaxing Monday today made up for it. I'm so thankful the rest of the week is slow and I actually have three days in a row where I don't have anyplace to go. Hopefully those days will be rain free so that I can finally get the grass cut and the patio cleaned up. And the plants planted. And the rosebushes pruned. And the weeds pulled. Well, you get the idea.
Yesterday Jenn my cleaning lady came. I told her she is a blessing from God. In four hours she had about a third of my dining room cleaned out. I have so much recycling and trash to put out. Once things are straightened and organized I can keep it that way. But getting it organized is my problem. She even offered to help me paint the downstairs. What a gem! While she worked on that, I was picking up the living room. We talked a little, but basically just happily coexisted with our projects. For the first time in a long time I have hope that things will get better.
Today began with Bible Study. We finished up chapter 3 of Colossians. Only two more lessons and then we are finished. I'm going to do Philemon next and then I want to take a break from the epistles and do a study in the book of Ruth.
After Bible Study Debbie and I dropped off some things at Salvation Army and then headed over to the library. I am donating books from the church library that they are getting rid of. The public library is very happy to get them. And I am happy to see my friends each week.
Lastly we went food shopping at Shop Rite. I had a short list to begin with, but it got longer as I went along. The "Meal of the Week" was turkey taco burgers. It looked and sounded good so we will see. On Tuesdays I get my Senior Discount so that was good too. In all with discount and coupons I saved over $32! Here's my haul for the next two weeks.
I left at 9:00 this morning and didn't get home until 3:00 this afternoon. It was a long day.
For dinner tonight I had a ham steak, mashed sweet potatoes and sauteed Brussels sprouts. It was so good!
Tomorrow morning I am going to (finally) get my hair cut. I am looking forward to seeing Deb so much. No one cuts my hair as well as she does. It is getting long, my bangs are falling in my eyes and I am so wanting to have it looking good again. Here's what I look like today. I just pushed my bangs out of my eyes. I think that may be why I've had headaches lately.
I will show you the new cut tomorrow.
And now I will get off of here so that I can watch "America's Got Talent." I got hooked on it for the first time last summer and I'm so glad to be able to watch it again this year.
