Day 21 of 2013 ... Monday
We had a full day today. We left the house about 8:30am and we just got home ... it's just before 7pm. Always on Monday we meet at the Kingdom Hall for some up-building scripture before working in the Ministry. Today it was sooooo cold. We made a few calls around the community on neighbors that we know are interested in learning what the Bible teaches. Debbie, a friend who worked with us this morning, made a big pot of soup for our friends that are under the weather and we delivered that with some cookies she also made. Our Granddaughter Molly even put a few magazines in a laundro-mat for people to read while they wait for washers and dryers to finish. She didn't get to say hi to anyone this morning, it must have been to cold for people to venture out.
After we finished for the morning we did decide to go to the gym. Sara and Patrick did not go with us to the gym but Debbie did. I found out I can press 90lbs on the machines using my arms but only 35 lbs using my legs. I guess I have better upper body strength than I thought and not so much strength with my legs. I did walk, almost briskly, a quarter mile at a slight incline but I could go no farther. After our breaking sweat we went for the hot tub in the ladies changing room. Oh, Oh, Oh, did I like that!!! I can't speak for Debbie but she seemed to enjoy the hot tub also. We went from the hot tub to the sauna. Warmmmmm. ummmmmm it felt good. My lips are chapped now and I blame the sauna, it was very dry in there.
We were hoping that Dan, Debbie's hubby, would be able to get away from work and the 4 of us could go have dinner in Springfield. Alas, no, Dan had a few more hours ahead of him before he could quit for the day. So Debbie went home. We will see her and Dan tomorrow night at the Kingdom Hall for the Ministry School and our special speaker. We are looking forward to that. Cecil and I had dinner at Fricker's but we did go to the mall first. He wanted a mini recorder from Radio Shack and I needed some new scented body sprays from Bath and Body. I also darted into a store with a big sale. They sold calendars and games. I found a Train calendar for Cecil, A Betty Boop Calendar for Missy and I Love Lucy for Bethy. I also found a few games for the grandkids... Princess puzzle, card game and something else ... it has totally slipped my mind. I'm sure whomever I give it to will love it. We thought of them and I will know which grandchild to give it to when I remember what I bought!
Now we are home. The couch is ready and waiting. I got Cecil's spot ready while he was changing clothes. A few pillows and a blanket. One pillow will be for me when I get there. It is my next stop. I think I will be taking our drug of choice before bed tonight to help with the workout I had today. Our drug of choice is Ibuprofen and He will probably give me a couple aspirins also.
So I will say Good Night because I think I hear the couch calling.
Welcome To What's Up With Me!!
This year I want to get personal, to just talk, I have used my blog for business for so long I have grown tired of trying to keep it up dated. SOOOOOO I thought I would give you pieces of my mind ... LOL little pieces at a time.
Now I will from time to time show you what's new in my etsy.com shop but mostly I just want to relax, unwind or get uptight whatever the day brings. But now I'm going to put into words what I'm thinking, what I'm going through, what I'm happy about.
This may become therapy, way cheaper this way!!!
