Friday night was the last night of vacation bible school. It was a busy week and I am tired. The kids were great!!! Our theme this year was a western one and it was a hit!!!!
We had our program on the last night. The kids did a wonderful job of singing and saying their bible verses. VBS is so exhausting, but rewarding. You might ask, if I am so tired - then why in the world am I still up at 1:30 am. Beats me, I guess I am just trying to wind down from this last week.
Tonight (Saturday), Ritzy and I have a nephew's birthday dinner to attend. His mom called last week and invited us and told me that he had a request. He wanted his aunt ( Ritzywife) to make him his very own peach pie for his birthday. (from those Porter peaches) It was also hinted at that everyone else wanted some too. So........today i bought 3 pie pans for those pies. That is what I will be doing later in the day. My sister-in-law is serving enchiladas and she asked me to make the pico-de-gallo to go along with the meal. I will be making that as well.
I was talking to another sister and she said that she was about out of peaches and had not put up any. I told her I had not put up as many as I want.......so that means I will probably be making a 3rd trip to Porter in the coming week. Porter is about 70 miles one way. Not too bad of a drive, but it does take some time....
Next Friday is Ritzy and my 27th anniversary. I cannot believe it has been that many years ago since we said "I DO"
We will decide what we are going to do this week.
I am finally starting to get sleepy, so I better head off to bed........
Ritzywife is out........................................
If you don't like hot weather, then you are out of luck here in Oklahoma. This past week we were under an "excessive heat warning" and it still continues into this next week. You can't go outside without the sweat rolling off you in a couple of minutes. Ritzy is crazy and I told him so. Yesterday he was cutting some hickory wood over at my brother's place. He finally called me around 2pm to let me know he was quitting and coming home to mow the lawn. He kept finding things to do outside and I was a little worried. He kept drinking that water tho. Went thru several bottles of water........With all the late rains, the grass is still growing. By now the grass is usually starting to turn brown, but not this year. Ritzy is not going to get a break in the mowing .
He gives the hickory to our neighbor who owns the store/bait shop. He smokes meat nearly every day. We use some when we grill outside. I told him it was to darn hot to be running that chainsaw.
We start Vacation Bible School at our church tomorrow. It goes from 5:00pm -8:30pm every night. I told Ritzy that if he wanted dinner he was going to have to help at VBS. Actually we eat from 5 - 6. I already told the son that he was on his own for dinner this week.
VBS sure makes for a busy week, but it is so funny to watch those little kids.......
I had better get off here and get some rest, cause I am certainly gonna need it, Ritzywife out.......................
