Hello, everyone. So nice to see you again. I hope you are having a great day. Here the sun is shining and in the morning it comes right in the front window and into my eyes where I am sitting on the sofa. That is a good thing since it lifts my spirits and makes me feel better.
I am off to Bible Study this morning. Last night I wrote up the handout I am giving today. It is from the YouTube channel The Bible Recap. Although I am teaching from Matthew 11 today, I just began handing out these recaps and so today I am giving them Matthew 2. What an interesting chapter about the wise men! I learned some things and was reminded of others. I hope my class finds it as interesting as I did.
When I went to print my handout and notes for the class, it wouldn't print. It kept telling me my printer was offline. But it wasn't. And I couldn't find out where to fix it even if it was. I had it on my new laptop, so I emailed it to myself and then opened the email on my old laptop that I knew would print it. I finally got it done, but what a time! When Joe gets up today, I will get him to help me add the printer app to the new laptop. I'm no good with things like that.
I went to Shoprite yesterday to pick up my order that I had put in. Because of how painful my legs are, I can no longer walk around a store and get my groceries. But I don't want to pay the $10 charge to have them delivered, so I go to pick them up. Usually Joe goes with me and actually goes into the store to get them. But he isn't feeling well these days so I went by myself. When the girl rolled out the cart with a case of water and three cloth bags (we are not allowed to have plastic bags in Philadelphia) I was surprised. Is that my entire order? I asked her. She said yes, so I said thank you and took it.
When I got to the car and tried to put the bags into the car I understood why it looked like such a small order. Those bags hold a lot and she had packed them full. They were so heavy! They were so heavy that I actually couldn't lift them. One was light so that went in right away. But the other two! I got one of them slid onto the back seat and went for the second one. But I couldn't do it. The cart turned on its side and I dropped the bag. Of course that was the one with the eggs in. Fortunately only one cracked and I was able to save it and eat it for lunch yesterday. But I pulled my shoulder and my back. And I still had to put the case of water into the trunk!
When I got home, I got some tote bags out of the trunk of the car and split up the order. I would put some things in one of the bags and then lift it to see if it was too heavy. Those three bags turned into eight bags. But at least I was able to get them into the house. It took me over an hour to get them all in, but I just took my time. Fortunately my back and shoulder aren't hurting today. Yet. I just got up so who knows.
I need to stop at Rite Aid on my way home today. I forgot to get bread. I thought I had it on my list, but I must have forgotten to add it. Well, only one thing. I might get a few other things while I am there. I have a coupon for 50% off hand soap. We don't need it, but it won't go bad if I don't use it until January.
Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week? How did it come so quickly? I have to get my kitchen cleaned up this week so I can make my pumpkin pies. We are going out to eat with some friends on Thanksgiving, but we want to get a rotisserie chicken the next day and have a little thing with just us. But we have two friends who will be alone that day. So we invited them to go to a diner with us. I am just not well enough to cook a big meal or I would.
And now it is getting late and I have to be off to church. Hope you all have a great day and I will talk to you later.
