What I've Been Up To

It's a picture-filled post!

First, I started attending a new small group on 9/26 - Wednesday nights from 7-8:30. We meet in a home, which is nice. I prefer that over meeting at the church. More cozy. And, small groups at church meet from 6-7:30, which is kinda early for me since I sometimes don't get off work until 5:30 or later. We're reading and discussing Lee Strobel's book, "The Case For A Creator."

I watched the season premiere of CSI on the 27th. It was intense! I heard Jorja Fox is leaving the show in November. Guess I will have to audition to be Grissom's new love interest! LOL

Our Board meetings were on Friday, the 28th. I'm usually done in afterwards, so I just chilled out on Friday night. I got a haircut that Friday afternoon, but didn't take a picture until Monday. I like my hair short! It's so much eaiser to manage!

On Saturday morning, I attended a Creative Memories Area Wide Consultant meeting from 9-3. We made some pages and borders. Gave us some new ideas for our customers, so that was fun.

Played bingo out of town on Sunday. My younger sister, oldest nephew, my brother, and I went. It was a fundraiser for the
Joubert Syndrome Foundation. My cousin's two boys have this syndrome and they want to attend a conference so the proceeds helped them and the foundation. None of us won anything. Not even a door prize! But we had fun and we helped out with the fundraiser.

I cleaned mom and dad's living room on Monday evening after work. Then mom made dinner - turkey burgers and corn on the cob. YUMMY! When I got home, look what was delivered! A package from!

On Tuesday, I went out for pizza with Vickie and the kids, then to a Creative Memories Unit meeting.

I came home from work on Wednesday, intending to go to small group, but I lost track of time. I started doing stuff around the house because I knew it was a busy week.

Thursday was scrapbooking night. I host Stop, Shop, & Crop every Thursday from 6:30-10:30. It's fun! I have about 4 regulars each week.


I was supposed to babysit for a family from church on Friday. Her husband is in Africa for 6 months with the Navy and they have 3 little girls. Her parents decided to extend their visit, so we postponed until another time. I am still catching up on CSI, so I watched disc 3 from Season 6. That's 4 episodes. I fell asleep during the 4th episode, so I watched that this morning!

Today, I decorated for Fall, did laundry, went to a Boyds Bear event, got some mums, went to the grocery store, and came home and took a nap!

My entertainment stand - 2 pictures. I'm not happy with the arrangement. I may do something different tomorrow! It needs something with some height.

Edited: I switched things around, but didn't take a picture of the entertainment stand. It has the big pumpkin that was on the dining room table.

Here are before and after pictures of my front yard! I didn't do the new stuff - I don't like to sweat! LOL I hired a landscaper. He pulled everything out, laid down some mat thing to prevent weeds (!), planted the new plants (I added some mums today), and added the stones. I love it! And it's so much nicer to look at without weeds!

Tomorrow after church I leave to go camping with my mom! We stay until Friday afternoon. We're camping fairly locally (LOL), so I'll be stopping at home to shower and check emails and feed my cats! It'll be nice just to get away, even if it is supposed to be hot! I can't believe it! It's October and temps have been in the high 80's and the humidity came back today! I was looking forward to cooler weather and campfires! I'm sure I'll have pictures to share so check back next week!

Until then, I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!
