Saturday Company

Last night Scott and Becky came and stayed overnight.

This morning Bob's toilet broke and he and Scott went up to Ace Hardware and bought the parts and Scott and my brother-in-law Bob installed it.

Later we went to Bartlesville where Scott and Becky did some shopping. Then we dropped them off at Tyro and they went up to John and Leslie's house to spend the afternoon and tonight.

Leslie fixed us all a really gourmet dinner. John grilled some steaks and Leslie made a really special salad and new potatoes. We also had hot bread. I took a cherry pie cake dessert and no sugar added ice cream. Everything was scrumptious.

Slinky was outside until 7:30 tonight and he was really happy to come inside. He is sleeping now in the nice warm kitchen.

Now tonight something is wrong with our shower. It won't work. Bob will have to look it over tomorrow. There's always something. We will probably have to call a plumber for that.

A Huge Thursday

Yesterday was a big day. At about 9:00 I remembered that I was supposed to put an ad in the Journal for the Lenten Luncheons that start on Wednesday. Bob and I quickly drove downtown and I talked them into getting it in tonight's paper as well as Monday. I hope they made it. Then we drove over to meet Jack and Marilyn for our trip to Tulsa. We had a great lunch and attended the class on the book The Last Week, by Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan. It was fine but since it was held in a coffee shop, it was much too noisy for 23 people to discuss a book. Next week they will hold it at the Trinity Episcopal Church there. We will not be able to go. We have Coffeyville Ministerial Alliance and I am secretary/treasurer. Maybe we will get to go the following week. Bob was not impressed but then both he and Jack wear hearing aids and probably missed a good deal of it.

When we got home we just watched TV. Bob had leftovers for supper. I had a bowl of ice cream and called it good.

Slinky woke me up at 12:30 and it took me two hours to get back to sleep and then he woke me up again at 4:00. So I am tired. Scott and Becky will be coming later on this evening. They will stay with us tonight and then go to Leslie and John's for tomorrow night. They will leave early Sunday morning because Becky has a woman coming to Fort Scott look at one of her horses and she thinks she may have a sale.

Family for Dinner

Tonight we will have our grandson over for dinner again. We bought some ham pieces at the market yesterday and I will make scalloped potatoes and ham casserole. We will have steamed veggies with that and coleslaw. I have some mixed fruit and cookies for dessert. Jeromy's wife is in Topeka getting prepared to have their baby. She is using a midwife...which kind of worries me. Marlene is a very tiny person. I worry she may have problems delivering and there will be no hospital and doctor.

I will go to Independence this morning and have my hair done. Then I will pick up Juanita for breakfast. I will try to get home by 10:00, in time for a teleconference for MC3.

After that, I will mix the coleslaw so it can set in the frig all afternoon. Slightly busy day....I expect Marilyn will call sometime today to decide if we go to Tulsa tomorrow. It depends on how Jack is feeling. He is gone to Kansas City today to sit for a case. Jack is a senior judge. He will be back later today. If he is up to staying at home alone, Marilyn and I will go.

Tuesday With My Sister

I went to spend a couple of hours with my sister today. She just gets worse and worse.

t's all I can do to sit there and listen to her rambling on and on about things she's told me countless times. But I have to do it. I will not have her forever and at least she still recognizes me. My brother-in-law needs the break too.

We will go to Independence today and take our daughter to lunch. We did not do that at all last week.

Tonight I have to go give the invocation at the city commission meeting. That will be a challenge. One of the commissioners is very argumentative and hard for the other commissioners to work with. I hope to pray for peace and cooperation between them.

Rev. Dr. Rita Nakashima Brock (part 1 of 2)

more about "Rev. Dr. Rita Nakashima Brock (part 1...", posted with vodpod

Last year in January, a friend and I went to Tulsa to hear Dr. Brock speak. It was a great experience. It was held at the Disciples of Christ church there.

We both bought her book.

It's Sunday!

Well, it's Sunday and we will have church this morning even though it's pouring down rain. The only pretty day we had last week was Thursday. But it has been busy.

I don't know where we will eat lunch today. Maybe Leslie will help us with that decision.

Tonight we have the Living the Questions group at Keith and Joyce's home. I have the program. I guess I will show a Nooma DVD and we can discuss the topic. I have ordered two DVD's to use in the future. One is by Spong and the other has three different speakers. We will show Marilyn's at church school today then I will give it back to her.

I wish we didn't have to go out tonight since it's raining.

Funny thing:

Slinky's bed is here in the kitchen out of the draft from under the back door. He was eating his breakfast and drinking his water and Missy kitty took over his bed. I ignored it since I usually chase her off his bed. Pretty soon, Slinky growled a little and I saw that the cat was still on his bed so I chased her off. Now he is comfortably lying on his cushion. He just wanted me to deal with her. He is intimidated by her...a cat, for Pete's sake!
