How Can We Have
So Many Mondays?
June 29, 2015

Beautiful Crepe Myrtle bush in bloom.
Ron got me up at 6:00 for my allergy shots.  He is so good about that.  Of course he can hear his alarm clock, so he does have an advantage.  After I did the shots, he went back to bed and I started making two batches of Rice Krispie Treats to take to the church this evening.
Some of our class members preparing supper this evening for the VBS workers.
I got the grandchildren up at 8:00 and we had blue berry muffins and cereal.  They all ate well and got ready to go.  While they children played, I sewed the binding on a quilt I have been working on for way too long.  I don't enjoy doing the binding so I seem to get hung up on that step, even if it is the last step.
 Servers this evening waiting for the Bar-B-Que burgers to be brought out for serving.
One of the grandchildren went to the shop with me and three went to my mom's house for the day.  It was about 10:00 when I delivered the children and headed to work.  I had lots to do at the office since I had been out of the office last Thursday and Friday taking care of the grandchildren in McAllen.
 Workers enjoying the evening meal before time for Vacation Bible School
The morning was spent mostly on bookkeeping chores: bill paying, opening the mail, filing some papers, etc.  After lunch I started doing the finishing handwork on the quilt but could not get it finished by the time I needed to leave.
 Here is the finished quilt. 
 All of the picture squares are of cats.
For Vacation Bible School, three of the five children need to be there early each evening.  Tonight our Sunday School class was providing supper to the VBS workers and their children.  We provided Bar-B-Q burgers, potato salad, baked beans, drinks and for dessert, Rice Krispie Treats.  We had a good crowd for the meal and they enjoyed the food.  We had at least 11 from our class there to help prepare the food and serve it. 
 After Grandpa showed her how to fix one door, she did the other one.
I did not help much since I was trying to keep up with the youngest of the grandchildren who are here for the week.  He was on the go a lot.  Actually there was another reason I did not help a lot.  When I arrived at the church, I was getting all the grandchildren out of the car and I guess I used the remote to lock the car before one of the doors was closed. 
 Ron to our rescue
Somehow, that, or something else, messed up the locks.  The two back doors would not close.  The lock would not connect to the post as it should have.  It was hot.  I was tired.  I tried and tried, but finally called Ron.  He gave me one suggestion, but I could not get it to work, so he came to my rescue.  He quickly solved the problem.  By that time, they were about ready to serve the supper.
Placing Rice Krispie Bars on platters, to serve
When all was done for the supper and cleaned up, I checked in the children and headed home to finish that quilt.  Then I took it to a lady who is going to deliver it for me. 
 The back of the quilt
Tonight after VBS, the children's other grandmother picked them up and will keep them until VBS time tomorrow night when she will take them to VBS where I will pick them up when it is over tomorrow night.
Once back at home, just after 8:00, I relaxed and read for a while.  It had been a long day.  


  1. I was panting by the time I finished reading! LOL! Glad I didn't have to follow you around today!

    1. Tiny, I admit, I was very tired. Thankfully Ron let me sleep late and I woke up feeling great! Had a relaxing day at the office with time for sewing. Here, as I write, it is almost midnight and the middle girl is sewing. What a treasure.
