Hello, friends. My sister said tonight that I never write in my blog anymore and she is right. I never have time. It is hard for me to write or read other blogs. Not because I am not interested, but I am so busy. And life is not going to get any easier.
Yesterday we had a baptism at church. The first one in about four years. We baptize adults by emersion. Since we do not have a pool, one of the neighbors very kindly loaned us his. We are so happy for Ana.
The two little girls I had in my Sunday School class have been returned to their mother. So there has been no class recently. Last week we had missionaries visiting and they had three little boys. The two older ones went with me into the room and we had the lesson on Josiah. I found that girls and boys are different to teach. Girls talk about Barbies and My Little Pony. Boys talk about monsters and how far a person can spit. Ha, ha!
I couldn't sleep on Saturday night. I had about 90 minutes of sleep tops. Probably less. So I was really out of it yesterday. I went through the day in a fog. I went to bed around 2:00 p.m. and finally fell asleep around 3:00 p.m. I slept for about two hours and felt a lot better. Joe called out and got Chinese food so that I wouldn't have to cook.
I went for my semi-annual checkup with my oncologist last week. Everything is good. No sign of my cancer returning. Good news! So the doctor said since it has been so long, from now on I can come annually. I don't need to see her until next August. Of course if anything comes up, I just have to call her and get an appointment.
I went to the Crafters group at church on Saturday, but I was the only one that showed up. Oh well. I am working on so many crafts at home. I am making another temperature blanket this year. I said I wasn't going to do it, but I did. So much yellow, pink and red in it. Those are the "hot" colors. It certainly shows what a warm year we are having.
I am also knitting a baby blanket for my new little great-grandson that is coming. I have gathered all my left-over blue yarn and am making blocks which I will crochet together to look like a patchwork quilt. The yarn is all different shades of blue and different textures just as if I were using different kinds of cloth. The good thing is that I am getting rid of a lot of yarn. When I am finished, I will wash it before I send it off to make sure everything is clean, soft and fresh smelling.
Besides that, I joined Annie's Attic Farmhouse Craft Club. I get a new craft every month. They are really nice too. So far I have made a beaded patriotic garland and a coaster set. I made a YouTube video about it. Here is the link to it.
Tomorrow is Bible Study. We are starting on Hebrews chapter 5. I was going to do a review of chapter 4 but... I can't find the book!
I can't find a wedding invitation that I have to return either. Oh my! This house MUST get cleaned up. I am so disorganized.
And with that, I have to get going on putting a lesson together. I hope all is well with all of you. August is almost over. So is the summer. Time is flying.
