musical car

Today we have a big juggling of schedules. I have to be at the hospital at 8, M has to be at the courthouse at 10 for jury duty and B, my son has 2 dr. appointment one @12 and 1@1. It was a mad house here for a little while until we got the whole deal figured out.

Can you believe a 19 year old was picked for jury duty? It blew our minds when he got the summons. He has been very diligent about calling in to see if he needs to go and his number was called for today. I will be glad when he and his dad can find a vehicle for M to drive.

Pray for him as he is waiting to see if he will have to serve. God bless you all and hope you all had a happy Easter as we remember the sacrifice Jesus made for us. He is risen, He is risen indeed

Today has been one of the longest days ever. It seems like it should bepast midnight and it isn't even 12 yet. Was busy today with friendship International. Showing ladies how to make a project and having a mistake that you couldn't find is very frustrating. One of the young ladies was making a ripple poncho and we had too many stiches left over at the end of the row. We counted, looked and recounted befor we realized the mistake was at the very beginning and had to rip out two rows of work. When we finally got the count right the project looked right and when we go back next Wednesday, I know that M will have the ponco completed.

I have decided to make some baby booties and have just started the first lacy bootie. I have been trying to make this bootie since the first of the year and have not been successful. However, I am going to make these booties and they will look neat. Thanks for reading if anyone is reading this. Just random thoughts tonight. Bed is calling so off I go.

Just trying to post daily

You know, ducks have it made here in Kentucky. It has rained. It is raining. It will rain. Rain is good Lord, but could we get a little sunshine in between the drops. My drive in front looks like a lake and we are having to park in the yard most of the time because of the water.

I know that this summer I will be looking forward to some rain when it is so hot. Let's just spread it out over the months instead of days at a time. My lilac bush is leafed out and has grown tio about 1 1/2 feet tall. I got this bush for Miother's day in '06. It was accidently cut down that summer. It has been my special project to see this bush grow again to the hieght it was when it was set out. It still has a way to go but I think it is going to make it now. I can't wait to smell the fragrance of lilacs out side my living room windows.

Trying to keep up

I have really let this blog go for awhile. So there is a lot of info to let you know. First my sister had open heart surgery March 4 and came through it beautifully. She is coming back to Louisville today to have blood work drawn and to see doctors Tues. and wed.

I had a blessed visit with the youngest child this past week and really enjoyed the time spent with Lexington grandkids. They are so precious. J is growing up so fast. She is no longer a baby. At 8 she is long legged and into sports. She loves basketball and school. She is reading on a fourth grade level in the second grade. Her Math skills sre up there too. She just gets it. Now H is going to be another story. She is just starting to want to read. She seems to love to write. While I was there she filled a page of paper with a story she copied but that is the beginning of learning writing skills.

Just loved being with them.

My youngest Arkansas grandchild will graduate May 19 and I am hoping to get to go. I want to drive so tomorrow I will wee if my doctor will allow it. I have ,so far, been to every one of the grandchildren's graduation exercises.

Then May 27th the Grandson here will graduate. That leaves only two and they will graduate in 10 years and 13 years. Just some musings from my heart today and so I will leave as life calls me to be about the business of living today. God bless you all
