I got up fairly early...shortly before 5:00AM but I had slept pretty well. I got myself ready for church and fed myself and Missy. She wanted to go outside but it is raining and storming again this morning and it's still dark out at 6:25 so she is in on my bed napping.
I have the coffeecake in the oven already so when it comes out and cools, I will ice it with a glaze made of oleo powdered sugar and milk. It is my turn to drive this morning and I will call Phyllis at 8:00 and tell her I will be driving.
I don't know where we will have lunch today. It's been awhile since we've been to "Just Us". Last week 15 of us went to Great China. Before that we went to El Publito.
The coffee cake is out of the oven now and cooling on a rack. When it is cool, I will put the glaze on it. I just texted Bob and also Rick and Carmen. I hope Rick and Carmen can get to church this morning. It is still raining hard.
I will get back to this later...
I just noticed a new photo of my newest great grandchild, Gracyn, and Ginger, my daughter-in-law. How cute!
She is really growing up fast! Look at that smile!
We had a guest at church today and everyone went to welcome him. I got him to sign the guest book and offered to send him the newsletter by snail mail. He gave me his address so I sent him the Sunday newsletter by snail mail.
Our backpack party is on Saturday this week at 6:30. We are to take snack foods for that evening.
We fill backpacks to take to the Caney, Kansas elementary school for kids whose folks cannot afford a backpack and school supplies. Last year we sent 65 backpacks with basic school supplies.
I took some coffeecake and yogurt over to Marilyn this afternoon and stayed and visited awhile. She is having tooth sensitivity.
But now it's 8:40PM and I simply cannot stay up any longer. Missy and I watched a couple of episodes of Big Bang Theory but I can hardly keep my eyes open so I am going to bed. Missy will probably follow me in awhile.
