Out Done By A Senior Citizen (again!!)

Ev and I are putting on our annual seed party tomorrow night. As we are working to have people become more involved in our community, we decided to open it up to everyone and hold it in our community hall.

To get the word out Ev made an announcement in the community league section of the Jasper Place news paper and I wrote an article letting people know what to expect and how much fun we all have.

We wanted to make sure everyone knew about it and decided to send out flyers as well. We had 250 printed up, she took some and I took the rest assuring her that I would easily get the delivered while walking Jada. I'd make it doable by delivering over a few days.

Uh Huh. . .

Easier said than done!
I had now idea how much work it would be to run up and down all those stairs dragging Jada behind! (Although she did get better at it once she realized what we were doing.)
Two days of walking and delivering left me with a huge stack of flyers, sore muscles and a bad case of exhaustion. ( Be nice. . . don't forget about all the chaos going on at the same time!)

Mom phoned me on Friday morning to see how things were going and I whined about how hard things were.

She offered to deliver some of the flyers for me.

I was thrilled!Bold
She was gone a long time. . .
Two hours later she finally showed up, every flyer delivered.
For crying out loud!

My senior citizen mother had delivered more than three times the flyers I had and it had taken me two days to do it!

Mom can out garden, out can (food), and now out deliver me!
Sigh. . . I'm such a wuss.

And Aunty Nancy. . .

Please don't tell her that I called her a senior citizen!!

It's total chaos around here lately.
We've had granite tile put in the kitchen as a back splash ( free leftover tile and flooring is a real perk when it comes to being in the flooring business!)
We were also blessed with some vinyl plank flooring which Morgan and his friend Brad put in to Jesse's room as well as the computer room last weekend.
This meant that everything had to come out of the computer room and is littered all over the house.
To top it all off, Henry decided that things needed rearranging in the living room and the kitchen, which in turn affected the computer room.
It's all driving me crazy!
Henry moved stuff around to suit him and then looked at me full of pride with the awesomeness of the new arrangement.
I, on the other hand looked at it with disbelief and wondered what he was thinking!
Thankfully our friend and neighbour Theresa dropped by with her dog Diesel.
She is a woman of excellent taste.
So at least the living room looks pretty good now.
Sigh. . . .
I'll keep you posted.
Who knows, I may shock myself and post pictures too. . .

Dear Lisa. . .

My sisters and their husbands are on a holiday right now so Lisa gets to celebrate her birthday in fine style this year.

That means however, that I can't phone and wish her a happy birthday this year. . .

So on the off chance that she takes a quick break from all the fabulous fun they are having to check out my blog, I wanted to say. . .

Happy, Happy Birthday!

I pray that God grants you many more wonderful, birthdays and many more chances for us to visit with each other.

Miss you sis.

Love Rosa
(See? I told you I told you I would do a 'Dear Lisa' post just for you!!)
