Gabfest

Marilyn and I took flowers to the cemetery to put on Mother's grave on Saturday. It was exactly 6 years ago that she passed away. We were so blessed to have had her as our mom. What a lady!

We went to see Aunt Bonnie, Mother's remaining living sister. She will be 90 next month. Yes...90 and she still looks like she's 70.

Chad flew out to Singapore on Saturday evening. I know Marilyn was relieved to have heard from him 24 hours later that he was there safe and sound. He is going to have incredible opportunities over there with his job. Tara has wedding plans in motion for 12-31-11.

We had two great services yesterday at church. Both were remembering 9-11 with special music and messages. (Got to hear Keelie sing once again there last night.)

Jerry is here for another week or so. We are enjoying some stories and food. Thanks, Marilyn, for some meals. (My kitchen is still basically closed--except for the trailer one.)

Work continues around here this morning. I just know it's going to be a very productive week. Hoping the dust settles. HA

Love my family and friends.

I am blessed.

  6. Industrious. That's the word that came to mind as I read through your post. What a fun, though very likely, challenging week.

    Blessings,
