A Well Oiled Machine

As part of Pastor Appreciation month our church presented me with a dozen beautiful yellow roses, as well as a card and gift for Michael, on Sunday. Thanks guys, we love and appreciate you as well. 
It was very sweet.  I am reminded of our church family often this week,  as it has prompted dad to sing the, "Yellow Rose of Texas,"  every time he enters the dining room. 
One more unexpected blessing from having Dad live with us. 

Our day progressed like a well-oiled machine. 

Stacia and I had dental appointments at 0830. We made it home in time for Stacia to go work on school, and for Allie  - who had gotten an early start on school - to jump into the car. 

She and I found a secluded spot to continue our Bible study.  

Michael had asked us to be home by 12:30 so he could make it to his appointment. We walked in the door at 12:20. SCORE. 

Stacia and Allie finished school. 

Grandpa asked for a sandwich - seems the breakfasts I make have more staying power than the oatmeal Michael gave him this a.m. He told me he didn't have toast or bacon. ::snort::  He ate and decided to nap. 

This gave me time to lug jars of applesauce and canning supplies back to the basement AND spend 45 minutes on the elliptical. I had just finished when Michael walked in the door. 


An episode of Librarian.

Grandpa and Stacia went to bed.  

Michael met Nolan on the other side of the door when he went to take care of chickens. 

It all worked well - I love days like this. Many of our days are more like herding cats.
