Today was a busy day!

My day started with getting to work a little early and staying really late.I got there early because I had a Book Discussion planned with refreshments and all for the Big Read. The book was "The Maltese Falcon" and I appreciate Jean the sweet lady who came to do it with my Seniors. I am showing the movie Wednesday am -it stars Humphrey Bogart as Sam Spade.
Then I had the usual busy Monday - I love my job.
At the end of the work day we had a fund-raiser dinner for our Meals on Wheels program- that was called The Empty Bowl Dinner-every one gets a ceramic bowl that was made by a local student and we serve soup, bread and water. There is entertainment and a live auction of all kinds of good stuff. The soups were steamy good- Corn Chowder, Seafood Gumbo, Minestrone and White Chili. A good time was had by all and no one should have left hungry -it was all you can eat . Did I mention my feet are killing me and I am tired and it was all worthwhile.
Two prayer requests -my Daddy or Poppy as we call him-he fell and broke his shoulder Sunday :o( and a very sweet young lady from my town who's name is Ashlee had a terrible car accident Saturday and is in bad shape. Please lift them up in prayer -it works! Be blessed!

Hi Lorie,

First off, thank you for visiting me today. I hope you will check out my two past Friday's Show and Tell as I was displaying some pictures made along the way on our two day trip to Huntsville. We went with our local senior citizen group on this trip. That's about the only way we travel any more. Anyway, you are too long to belong to the senior citizens so you must be the director over the center. We have a lady who is over the senior citizen group, but she happens to be a senior herself. She plans all the activities and the trips we take.

I am sorry to hear about your Dad breaking his shoulder. I hope he mends fast, and I hate to hear about the lady getting hurt. I will keep both in my prayers.

Happy belated birthday to your Mom.

Please come back to visit.

No I cannot take credit for the beautiful cakes but they are truly works of art and I love having them on my blog. Be blessed and please stop by anytime and absolutely add me to your favs as I will do the same.

Hugs,
LeAnn :)

I hope your daddy is doing ok. I did not know that he fell.
