Tuesday was a day of appointments and our first was with the seniors for a luncheon together. We ate at the “Honey in the Rock Café”, a restaurant sponsored by a church in Augusta. It was cafeteria style and was good, we left full and also satisfied with the friendly fellowship that was involved.

Back home, I had an appointment with the kitchen to make a dessert for our monthly OTP meeting. The particular dessert is called “Blueberries in the snow” and it is as yummy and interesting as it sounds. The Spice had baked me a couple of small angel food cakes the evening before, so with these and great care I constructed the dessert and placed it in the fridge to cool.

Next appointment was to pick-up GM1 from school and get her started on her homework and a short time later I left on my next appointment, to meet and eat with the OTP guys. This meeting was at one of the guy’s homes and the feast of the evening was catfish stew – it was excellent. I think we all consumed at least two bowls – I had two and a half and wished I had room for more.

Between us we ate over half of the blueberry stuff and I brought the rest home – I was not too unhappy about that. It was cool but we ate outside, circled up around an outdoor fire pit, having a great time just watching the fire and laughing and talking together.

I finally left because I had another important appointment – with my bed. The appointment was short-circuited when I sat down in my comfy chair and promptly conked out. I kept the appointment later when I regained consciousness. Wednesday morn I awoke to another round of appointments – the first one being with breakfast and scripture – I kept them and felt better by having done so.

Next appointment was with the collection bins at the landfill – I took our garbage. Next on tap was one with Wal-Mart to pick up some grocery items. After returning home and putting these items up I left on the next appointment – to keep the young ones of NWT (niece with twins).

NWT had an appointment and when I got there the twins were down for a nap and this lessened the energy needs considerably on my part. But upon walking in the door, her young lad was desirous that I should make paper airplanes. This was done and they flew many trips across the den before he tired of this enterprise. Then we went on to dinosaurs, of which he had many.

Then it was to play-doh and he wanted me to make more dinosaurs out of that – like the ones in his book. I did so and although they didn’t look like much to me, he said they were ‘perfect’. After several of these creations, he wanted me to make them each one a fish so they would have something to eat – they love to eat fish – says he.

NWT came back from her appointment, so I left on my next one, which was to go home to sit down for a while. I need to find something to fill my spare time. It is so good to be healthy enough to be involved in many things – God is good! ec
