2018 March 07 Wednesday in Liberty Hill Texas
37° at 3:00 a.m. so I turned the heater on. That way my bride wouldn’t freeze her toes (and other bits) when she rolled out of bed. Which she did around 6. I, on the other hand, didn’t reawaken until her alarm went off at 7. Even then I was reluctant to get up. Not at all like me to sleep in or for Ella to willing get up before 8. “Freaky Friday”came in Wednesday this week.
We arrived at Grandies* in time to help set things up for the meeting.
Snack table with fruit purchased yesterday.
One of the people (who is member of our church) who is running for reelection to the school board came to speak with us. We had another candidate (who also is a member of our congregation) come speak with us last week.
After Grandies* we were invited to go to Cherry Creek Catfish with friends. However, knowing that we would have a larger evening meal, and in an effort to conserve cash, we opted to go home and eat.
We had stew meat and ground beef that needed to be browned before dividing into portions and frozen. Part of the ground beef was made into loose meat sandwiches (also known as Maid-Rites, Taverns, or Sloppy Joes) for our lunch.
The left leg was aching to the point that, after the meat was browned, I retreated to my recliner and asked Ella to finish bagging and freezing the meat.
Monthly choir party
Once a month the choir (and family) gather to share a catered meal before practices. It’s a great way to pull the choir family together.
And then it was time for the drive home under the western sky.
*Grandies welcomes those 50+ every week with friendship, games and a ministry to connect to others. As a special part of their ministry, Grandies sign and send greeting cards with inspirational messages to those serving in the military, the sick or homebound and church members celebrating happy milestones like birthdays and graduation. Since this ministry started, more than 3,300 cards have been sent!
In the summer, Grandies also work to make available snack packs through Operation Liberty Hill for children who may not otherwise have enough food without school in session. Additionally, they provide meals at Vacation Bible School and host bake sales twice a year to raise funds for their important works.
