Busy - With a capital "B"

WOW - what a busy week I had last week......and this week is panning out to be almost as busy. My father use to say, "Busy people are happy people." I know we are very happy, so it must be true.
Sunday, a week ago, was of course Easter so after church I prepared a delicious ham dinner with all the trimmings. Suzette brought a delicious grape salad and Marc brought ice cream to have with our Strawberry shortcake. Of course our usual 2 church services and Sunday school.
Then Monday morning I had my woman's home bible study and that night attended a special meeting at another church. I didn't get home until 11 p.m.
Tuesday night I went to my other friends home bible study. I was really torn between going to it and the special meeting but I am one who believes in commitment. Our bible study was awesome and I knew I'd made the right decision.
Wednesday, as always we picked Aric up from school. He & Mickey went to Royal Rangers at our church and Wantha Ann & I went to the special meeting. We didn't get home until 11 p.m. again.
Thursday Mickey finally got to attend the special meeting with me and we took David and Kathy, church friends, with us. We didn't get home until midnight!!! and the meeting was still going and we heard we really missed out on some good stuff.
Friday we picked Oksana & Aric up from school and brought them home with us for the week-end. We took them to McD's for dinner and then left them at home and Mickey & I attended a birthday party for a young woman in our church celebrating her 40th!!! We were home by 9.
Saturday Suzette, Oksana & I had a "girls day out." We all three had pedicures and manicures. Then we went to Ro*n's Ha*mburgers, one of our favorite places, for lunch. Then we went to 6, yes 6!!! different shoe stores looking for hot pink heels for Oksana to wear with her prom dress. She found one paid she "sort of liked!" so we returned home without new shoes. Ginger, even after you reminding me I forgot the camera :o( !!!! But I have a treat below :o)
Grandpa and Aric had their "boy's day" which included a trip to Mc'ds!!!!!!
Sunday was Sunday School and Church, so wonderful to have Oksana and Aric attend with us. Another BIG highlight is my friend Kahri and her 4 children visited our church........YEAH!!!! Her husband, Michael, had to work but next week they will all be there. For those of you who have read my blog long know that Kahri & Michael are good friends from when we met about 4 years ago at the church we use to attend. They have our little miracle baby, who was not expected to live, and is now almost 4 1/2 years old. She is a living testimony to God's healing power and the STRONG faith of her parents.
After church we took the kids out to IH*OP for lunch.
Grandpa had to be "cool" and put on Oksana's sunglasses.
I did get a picture of this wonderful trio.
Dad, Marc, got back to town and picked them up about 4.
Last night at church we had a special singer who performed. He was good.
So not one day last week was it just a "stay at home day"!!! We also had damp, coolish, rainy and stormy days all week long. Friday night we even got out Code Red telephone call that woke us up to be aware of tornado conditions....but it was just a hard rain, wind and hail. All was well.
This week is lining up to be almost as busy......I'll report on that later. Have a great day and forgive me for not making the rounds visiting your posts. I'll get back on track soon.

Hi Susan,
You do sound very busy, but your post is filled with happiness and contentment.
Loved the picture of Grandpa wearing "shades".
These times are precious indeed...

Betty said...

I love the picture of the "cool" trio! :)
And the saying of your dad is sooo true for me too!

retha said...

What a 'cool' grandfather. Not just because of the glasses but more the actual being with the grandchildren!

Sharon said...

It sounds like you were a real busy Bee. I really enjoyed reading your blog and all of your church clubs

God bless.
The cool grandpa is to cute.

Busy times, but sound like good times with your family and church family.
Have a great week,


Mari said...

You did have a busy week! I love the photo of the threesome and I think Grandpa does look cool in the sunglasses! I bet the kids loved it.

Shirley said...

Glad you are doing well - and enjoying yourselves!

Thanks for the "young girl who turned 40" comment. I am 41, so that was sweet to hear :)

PEA said...

Isn't it wonderful to be busy, especially when it's a "fun" busy?:-) Love that picture of Mickey with the kids, he does indeed look very cool! Hehe xoxo

groovyoldlady said... I pointed out in my own post, I too was busy this week. However, I was in bed by 9pm all but one night!!!!

Karen said...

I got tired just reading your blog! It all sounds like fun, and refreshing. I love home Bible studies, they are the best. That is when the Spirit usually shows up in a big way.
btw gramps, pretty cool!

Frazzled Farm Wife said...

A girls day out sounds like so much fun! I should do that with my sisters...we all could use a treat!

Dan said...

I was wondering if everything was ok in Tulsa. Kathy and I were talking about shooting you an email to make sure all was well. Glad to hear it is.

Dawn said...

Take a deep breath! Sounds like good times. I'm busy as crazy, and tired. But there's no boredom!

We're having good revival services this week - refreshing, even though I'm tired when I go.

Brenda said...

A whirlwind week, sounds like!
That's a great picture of Mickey and the GG's. They look like they love their Grandpa!
My house looks like a tornado hit it. We are buried in boxes and shredded paper. Everything is getting loaded on Thursday.
I wish I could just fast-forward to next week when the hard part is over.
God bless.
