Daily rain showers have continued to force many changes in plans the last couple weeks. The garden fence is still not up, nor the garden planted. Now scheduled to be done next week, we hope mother nature cooperates because if we need to wait much longer, it will be too late for an ample growing season. The girls, Shirley and Betty, love their outdoor play time but that has been limited as well much to their disappointment
We had family visiting for five days leading into Memorial Day. Though enjoyable some plans were also hampered by weather. The planned outdoor cookout on Saturday was a success much to everyone’s delight. Our friends have two daughters, who loved playing with the girls. Optimal wind conditions also allowed a perfect day to fly kites, which a number of us did with the girls. The youngest, 9 years old, showed us all how it is done as she got her kite up the highest and longest. Weather on Sunday also cooperated making our attendance at the Indy 500 possible. It was a great day, with a good race and the always touching Memorial Day presentation honoring our service people.
The past few days were a little hectic. About a month ago, I volunteered to make an ordination anniversary cake for our Pastor’s celebration. I was originally told to plan on about 100 people. Tuesday night I got a call saying that there were closer to 200 expected. After the initial shock, I knew I could pull it off. A three day baking marathon resulted in two decorated cakes and LOTS of cupcakes filled and decorated with homemade chocolates. Bret helped with the cupcakes and transporting everything to the party. Everything was a great hit. The celebration also included a nice, delicious meal prepared by several parishioners, along with some entertainment by another parishioner. With his parish, as well as a number of family and friends joining us for his surprise celebration, he had a wonderful day. It was a great joy for us to be able to add something special for his celebration for all to enjoy.
