I made out my to-do list for the day and promptly fell asleep for a couple of hours. I woke up with the phone ringing and my friend, Genny, telling me she and her husband and daughter were at church and ready to decorate for tomorrow. I was NOT ready. I told her I'd be there in 1/2 hour -- and I was. I got showered, dressed and out the door. But I didn't have time to eat. And to tell the truth, I didn't even notice until hours later.
Joe, Genny, Janae and I worked our little tails off getting everything done. But now the church looks beautiful for tomorrow.
|This is the welcome table which is the first thing you see when you enter the sanctuary.|
|We found poinsettias and wreaths to put in the windows.|
|I put tablecloths and candles on the tables for our fellowship time.|
|Here is Janae with the tree. Her dad, Joe, and she did a great job putting it up and decorating it. It looks beautiful with the gold ornaments and gold lights.|
|The communion table with a nativity scene, the Bible, and the advent wreath. I still need to put a white candle in the middle. I have the candle, just not a holder. I'll go to Dollar Tree this week and get something.|
On the way home I got another shot of the sky. It looked like a watercolor.
As you can see it really clouded up.
The trees in the Arsenal really look like November now. No pretty October colors any more
On the way downtown I was commenting how beautiful the skyline was. Joe took my camera and got a shot of it. It wasn't the particular shot I was going for, but it is a beautiful picture nonetheless.
We got down there and got Pumpkin a checkup and his first shots. It didn't faze him at all. The vet has three cats that live there. They are the biggest cats I have ever seen. I got a couple of pictures of them. They are HUGE.
We stopped at Sonic on the way home and got something to eat. Then went home. I had to run to Rite Aid so I did that right away. While I was there I saw the cutest holiday socks. I had to get some. Aren't they great? I think I'm going to go back and get some more. They had so many different patterns.
I had so much more to do today but I fell asleep. But I did a lot.
Yesterday's movie was "Help For the Holidays" (2012). I had seen it before and it's one of my favorites.
Today it was "Mars Needs Moms" (2011). I had never seen it before. I thought it was cute but not wonderful. I did love the animation though. I'm a sucker for anything animated.
And with that, folks, I have to end and get to bed. I won't be able to get up for church otherwise. Have a good night, everyone.
33 days to retirement
No wonder you're tired! You did a LOT! The church looks beautiful & very welcoming. Glad Pumpkin's up to date.That tuxedo cat looks so majestic! And BIG! You're not kidding. I agree,the socks are cute. I like the red & white with the bow. Maybe I'll check them out. I would absolutely LOVE to sit on the porch of that house! Just listening to the water.....birds....how beautiful!ReplyDelete
Wow - you did have a busy day. I know you haven't been feel top notch so am surprised you got so much done. The sky is beautiful and I LOVE the socks. I always pick up socks for my grands for Christmas morning so we don't have any cold feet--the all match, too. lolReplyDelete
Hope you have a blessed Sunday in your prettily-decorated church. xo Diana
ps- those cats ARE huge!
Definitely a busy day my friend! I LOVE the Church decor, just beautiful. I didn't make it to Church today because my Anika is in bed with a busting headache.ReplyDelete
