Today at 8:30am is the first time our new group is meeting for the Ruth and Esther Bible study. We have a large group signed up and will probably split the group into 2. David has agreed to be the facilitator for one while Mark will be the other. Our picture appointment is 9:40am only giving us about an hour for the study. The Peoria AC church is doing something a bit different for the directory. Rachel Sauder is taking pictures of anyone wanting their picture in the online phone directory. This needed to be done years ago in my opinion of course there was no online back when we were growing up. Church starts at 10:00am and ends around 1:30pm and the big Bears Packers game doesn't start until 2:00pm. How is that for timing!
A big pan of soup is on the porch keep cool, make that frozen in these temperatures, which will be hauled over to Diane and Mike's. The wild rice still needs to be added but the rest of the ingredients were simmered for a couple of hours and now have had plenty of time for the flavors to blend. It should be delicious!
And now for a laugh before we start the day!
One day my grandmother was out, and my grandpa was in charge of me.
I was maybe 2 1/2 years old. Someone had given me a little 'tea set' as a gift, and it was one of my favorite toys.
Grandpa was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought him a little cup of 'tea', which was just water.
After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my grandmother came home.
My grandpa made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!'
Grandmother waited, and sure enough, here I came down the hall with a cup of tea for grandpa......... and she watched him drink it up.
Then she said, (as only a grandmother would know),
"Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water, is the toilet?"
Disclaimer: This did not happen to me, I would never have given grandpa Meister toilet water. This came from my cousin who probably would have done such a thing!
