I had been called upon to solicit cookies for dessert for this dinner. The original request was for 30-40 dozen. That was easy. I made a few phone calls and had these promised in no time. Last night the committee met and discovered they had sold 500 tickets to this dinner. I got the phone call in the early evening informing me of the numbers. Soooo, this morning found me back on the phone. I less than 30 minutes, I had 90 dozen cookies promised. Where else but in small town America could this happen? We are so blessed to live in this community where people care so deeply about one another.
Jim, who arises much earlier than I, does most of the laundry. I do my very special things that need to be washed according to label directions. (Jim hasn't mastered the art of reading labels yet) But everything else, he takes care of. I am doing my best to keep up, but doing laundry really gets in the way of stamping and blogging. To say nothing of cooking, doing dishes, sweeping, vacuuming and dusting. I can hardly wait for his hand to heal so we can get back to normal around here.
We had a really nice surprise this afternoon when I went to the post office. There was a package from BIL and SIL with our Christmas presents. What fun we had opening the box and then opening our packages. It was like Christmas all over again. We called to thank them and had a happy conversation discussing all the gifts. Lots of fun!!!
So you can see, it's been a great day. Tomorrow I'm off to breakfast with the "Losers" and then to Michael's to spend some of my gift card. I can hardly wait.
He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.
