Sending prayers, I hope your daughter feels better soon.

Good morning, friends!

It is a beautiful, cool 66 degree morning here in Eau Claire. With highs in the mid 70's.

Harlowe & I just took a nice walk, and I am looking forward to a day of getting some things done around the house and relaxing after my first week.

What are your plans?

Hope you have a blessed day!!

xx

What fun that was, I am sure! I hope they made a lot of money for the kids!

There is a restaurant about 15 miles from us that does this quite often for different groups/charities.

Last night we knew Pat was going to be there, so we told them we wanted to sit in Pats section when we got there. He had told us about it & told us to come & he would serve us. They kind of spread the word to their family & friends, but the business is just open as usual. He forgot several things & had to come back out- like this meal has 2 sides with it & he only took an order for 1 side, he forgot to ask his wife what kind of salad dressing, forgot to ask my sister soup or salad, etc. We had a ball with him! Good fun, good cause! I bet the kitchen help dreads those nights. Ha ha ha!






Come along!!



I hope your headache never appeared!!! Have a good rest of your day!



AWESOME! This show was on Sunday morning at the lake. Our neighbors 5 yo & 3 yo just love it. They were glued to the tv! And the other neighbors grandson was there too - who is 11 & he said it's his favorite show. Too funny! It was a good one!! Great gift!

She wasn't driving, one of her guy friends was. It wasn't her friends fault, the other car went through a stop sign and t-boned his car. Thankfully no one was hurt. I drove down to where it happened to make sure everyone was alright and to take my daughter home. I'm telling you, these teenage years are wearing me out. It's so stressful. I'm at the point where I don't even say hello when they call me, the first words out of my mouth are "Are you alright?"
Anyway, I have to go food shopping today. I'm happy I made it to my butcher yesterday, so that is off my list. I also need to go to the bank and the pet store. Other than that it will be a typical day, I have laundry and some other chores to do.
It is going to be sunny today with a high of 82 degrees. I wish it were a bit cooler but the humidity is gone, so I shouldn't complain.
I hope everyone is well and has a wonderful day!
Oh my goodness!!! I am SO glad that she and her friend are safe as well as the other driver. Hope today is better!

I have been running around like crazy trying to make sure that I am all packed this morning. I think I have everything (sheesh I sure hope). I have to get going to the airport in about a half an hour and my flight is in 2 and a half hours. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers for a safe flight!

I will catch up with you guys next week after the cruise!

xoxo
