The Scenic Route: Daily Life

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

This last Saturday my Mom and I worked at a used booksale which meant visiting with the  few people that came to look (our shift was SLOW because it was the last shift) and having plenty of time to sort through the books to see any caught our eyes.

Earlier in the day we went to Bible study and a few yard sales and I went to the library to pick up the next book that my friend Shauna and I are reading together.

Shauna and I skyped Friday and it was so much fun. It was nice where she lives so she brought her iPad outside and was working in her garden while we chatted. I miss living just one neighborhood over from her, but I'm so thankful for our chats! We're reading Agatha Christie's "What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw" which got off to a roaring start!

Sunday was slow and quiet. I made a coffee cake using several recipes from an old Betty Crocker cookbook that we have. My brother began a LOTR marathon which continued on Sunday morning while I was baking.

Apparently the writing bug bit him because he got out one of the journals he uses to write stories in. While he was busy adding to this one, I came across my sister who was working on an art project.

A few years ago my friend Jeremy taught me the fun that is speed scrabble while we were visiting his family in GA. Fast forward about a year and my friend Ruth introduced me to bananagrams. On Saturday we picked up an old Scrabble game whose pieces are going to be used for games of this.

I was happy to have a willing body to join me in a game on Sunday afternoon. I'm trying to convince my sister that it's fun!

Today marks the last day of my sister being 15!!! I'm pretty excited about celebrating 16 - especially since I know it only BEGINS tomorrow! :)
