I caught up on laundry, prepped for Bible studies, got announcements and bulletin inputs in, did a bit of admin stuff for the studies I'm facilitating, answered emails, posted things for various ministry pages....and BAKED COOKIES! Why would I choose to bake cookies on a day dedicated to getting a good start to the week?
Because this happens at our house tomorrow
These two were a lot of help....of course....well.....
Then I thought we could just do some nice round ones...but again...you know....Christmas Cookies are the thing...and we did make some fun memories. We ended up making 2 pounds of butter worth of cookies. LOL I think the last 4 doz were drop cookies.
We did take time to play today too. I didn't, after all, totally lose my grandma card. We played with these sweet little ones and their mom.
Stacia and I ran to the store for more butter. Arielle and Nolan had Japanese lessons. I got to spend a bit of time chatting with their teacher and a mutual friend at the end of the lesson.
We made more cookies.
I found out we are going to Izaak's graduation a day earlier than expected due to the in-coming storm.
The clinic called. "Maam you came up as one who has not had a colonoscopy. Are you interested in pursuing that."
Shoot - NO!!!!
I was hoping to fly under the radar a bit longer...but when you hit the big 5.0 in the military it's NASTY. I suspect I will have to do this and it really did not make my day.
Arielle requested Yumm Bowls for dinner. I complied; I did add Chicken Fajita meat for the meat eaters in the group.
We were a total hymn fail during our Advent circle. We don't know "Take My Life, O Lord, Renew".....so we sang Silent Night again. We'll know Silent Night really well by the end of this season. ::snort::
That's a wrap. The buzzer went off and the uniform is done....I'm going to BED...at 8:20 p.m. Yes, I am.
Living all of life before the face of God...
