No Way!

Judi-gmj tells me it's the middle of June. No way!
HOW did that happen?!

There's a chance that getting ready for and putting on the pancake, eggs and sausage breakfast with other FCCLA family had something to do with it.

I suppose it could have something to do with a week of Vacation Bible School. "Rainforest Adventure"--I got to be the song leader again this year--hooray!

Maybe it was all those evenings watching the weather watches and warnings. Both girls were at camp, relatively close to Chapman and Manhattan, when the tornado hit those towns. We were also out of the path here, but we know a student from K's class in Manhattan who lost the roof to his apartment.

Possibly it was those days and evenings shopping for food and supplies, making funnel cake batter and Navajo taco shells, gathering and filling ice chests for cases of pop and bottled water, all for the concession stand we and the other family ran at Summerfest--our small town summer festival one beautiful Saturday.

Making 3 batches of homemade ice cream (two for the youth group's upcoming ice cream social) might have been a factor.

Or it could have been the days the next week baking for the traveling bake sale with the same family, as T and their daughter finished raising funds to go to FCCLA Nationals in Florida in July.

It might have been getting paperwork taken care of for the youth group's YouthWorks! trip. They left yesterday morning, and arrived at Gulf Coast Mississippi late this afternoon.

And maybe it had something to do with keeping up (barely) with laundry, dishes, etc.

No, probably not that last one!


  1. Wow!! and I thought I could fly under the radar. YOu are a buzz saw with all that going on! Take a breath, glad to see you back and will you now relax for one or two ddays? I can smell those Iris!! It smells so much like my mom's yard when I was a kid. It even looks like hers :)
    Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Wow! You have been busy. My June went fast too, but I didn't too much out of the ordinary.

  3. sounds very very busy. I hope you get some relaxation time for the summer at some point.

  4. Judi and Tracy--I'll try.
    I actually do have something going on evenings this week, but it's different, it's fun, it's for me! Will try to post about it by the end of the week. ;)
    Kristina-I'm looking forward to an "ordinary" week, but I'm not sure when that's going to happen, or what that really looks like anymore!

  5. All I can say is that I'd really like some of that homemade ice cream. I can't believe that it will be July next week!

  6. You sure have been busy! The ice cream sounds yummy to me too. Pass some this way, please.

    We need a good kid's worship leader at church. Ever thought about moving to upstate NY?

  7. I'll be glad to save a bowl for you, Kim and Martha!

    New York? Hmmm.... no, can't say that I've ever thought about moving there. :-) I wouldn't mind visiting sometime though!
