Tuesday I hosted the women's Bible study in our basement. Jo Hershey did a good job on the topic, " Keeper's at home". I wish I had a photo of the table loaded down with all the goodies and surrounded by the 8 lovely women that came.
We had wet burritoes, chips 'n salsa, pink tapioca pudding, gummy butterflies someone had given us, pink drink with sherbet, and fruit pizza made with heart-shaped sugar cookies and drizzled with home made fudge sauce.
Verena made an "awesome" espresso cake and stuck a plastic saw into it for Mahlon. MMM ! good stuff!!!
|Pleased as punch with all the attention.|
On Friday it was party time again. Beings our husbands are on the schoolboard, Beth and I were in charge of the Valentine's party for the schoolchildren.
Beth did most of the planning and decorating and I just helped her. School moms also helped supply the food. We had hotdogs with cheese wrapped in crescent rolls, finger jello, veggie pizza, chips, punch,
After the meal, the teachers and children were divided into three groups, given an item, and ten minutes to make up a commercial.
They did a great job and gave us plenty of laughs. Then of course was clean-up time for Beth and I and she so sweetly stayed and helped me clean church too...What a blessing. On the way home, around 3 pm, I suddenly remembered that I had promised to do baking for a family whose son was getting married on Saturday. So that took up the rest of my afternoon and Jacob so kindly played deliveryman for me after supper.
Saturday I was feeling lazy and didn't get too much accomplished. And Sunday we enjoyed carry-in at church. This week feels pretty empty but I need to get back to my sewing projects.
Adios'...this is Jan signing off.
