Weekend in Arkansas

Well, it's been a rather sore but fun weekend.

The sore came in Friday morning as I was walking about about to begin 3rd lap and decided to channel my "Inner Bella Swan" . Tripped and went down, skinning palm of hand, jamming same arm back into shoulder. Skinning knee which has also formed a rather bright bruise.

Got home and did shower and get to work. Spent rest of day nursing knee and packing for weekend. Had to skip walking yesterday.

Left Saturday at noonish for Glenwood, AR where friends of ours - Cindy and David Loven - pastor a church and were celebrating the church's 15th anniversary. We went to attend and help out. Service Saturday night at 6 with reception after and then this morning with potluck after. Last night, just as church began, heavy rain and thunder. Not long into service, Cindy discovered that water was coming into the kitchen area. So her and I and on of the youth were finding any and all available cloths to sop it up. At one point it was at last one inch deep in on area. The church in on a hill side and apparently, the water runs down the side of the hill if the rain is heavy enough which fortunately has only been twice so far this year.

We go back into the sanctuary, sitting in a back pew and their bishop who is visiting for th celebration is preaching and says that when it was time to open the church people came not just to attend but to work as well be it teaching, nursery or "even picking up mops and buckets." We couldn't help it and had to laugh as quietly as we could manage back there. :D

More photos of the celebration Saturday night here and Sunday here.

Now just kicking back relaxing with some crochet for a bit

Somethings You Just Can't Put A Price On!

So we had to make a run to Ft Smith last night for some needed crafting supplies and a few other things. Since Joe works 10 hrs, we stopped for dinner there at an Asian Buffet. When we had come out, a dark green Pontiac Grand Prix was parked on the right side of MY dark green Pontiac Grand Prix. I went to the driver's side of mine and looked over.........


Gas to Ft. Smith: $7
Dinner at Buffet for 2: $17
Watching your husband try to get in and then realize it's the wrong car? PRICELESS :D

OH my!!!

You Are An Exclamation Point

You are a bundle of... well, something.

You're often a bundle of joy, passion, or drama.

You're loud, brash, and outgoing. If you think it, you say it.

Definitely not the quiet type, you really don't keep a lot to yourself.

You're lively and inspiring. People love to be around your energy.

(But they do secretly worry that you'll spill their secrets without even realizing it.)

You excel in: Public speaking

You get along best with: the Dash

Reason #59 Why.....

...I'm Glad I Was An Only Child -- Children's Sermons.

Joe preached at the church I work for today and had to do children's sermon as well. His scriptures were Noah's ark and psalm 46 and his theme was even though God is with us thru everything - even the storms, being a christian still means we have hard work to do. He sits down with the children on the steps at the altar and asks them... "Any of you have animals to take care of?"

They nod and answer with yes
Joe: "Hard work isn't it?"
Again they nod and there are definite oh yes answers again.
Joe: "How many do you have?"
One little girl: "We have some cats and a dog."
One brother and sister "We have 8 dogs"
Joe: "That's alot of work isn't it?"

and goes on with his topic after they agree. As he makes his point that we still have work to do and it will be hard, the sister pipes up with "Does that mean I still have to clean my room?" After being told yes, and laughter, her brother adds "Mom and dad get mad cause she always leaves her clothes on the floor and the puppies go in and poop on them."

From the look she gave him, something tells me we might want to pray for his healing
