Colander and my mind

Colanders are used in a varity of ways. The main object is to drain what is not needed abe have left only what is needed. I wish my mind could work the same way. Unfortuately for me the holes in the colander that is otherwise known as my mind is just as large as the items I want to keep.

Thursday we were almost on our way when I remember all that I forgot! Now since the things that I had forgot were in plain sight I would think that my dear sweet hubby would pick them up knowing it was something we needed. But as I said "think" I need to stop doing that.

I finally got the mp3 ditigal recorder, (forgot the headphones) notebooks, (thought he had the pens), my crochet something for me to do on the road. And made sure all the doors and windows were locked, emptied food garbage and upplugged all things electrical except for the refrigator.

Any how it was about 10 in the evening when we arrived a the hotel. The hotel was nice but of course I forgot to take pictures of it. I was just happy to arrive. I was tired and he was hungry. Off to Eat and Park for the night meal.

Everyday I forgot something at the hotel. day 1 the forks for our salads, day 2 batteries for the mp3 player which I used to record the sessions, day 3 the peaches for lunch.

Our hotel did have a refrigerator but someone (who's name shall not be mentioned) turned up the refrigeration to high and everything froze! including $13.00 worth of cherries. So the second day the salads were totally wilted and you really should not attempt to eat hardboiled eggs that were once frozen. So that day we went to the rasals roadhouse pizza place and had lunch.

Friday Saturday and Sunday the convention was wonderful. It focused more on daily christian life rather than doctrines. We have 2 new publications and 39 people were baptized.

Sunday when we were checking out of the hotel. I thought I had lost my camera! My husband stood back and watched while I went balastic in my search for it. I found it and never put it down until we got home. I was not losing another camera within 30 days of purchase!

I am slightly confused...how did Domonique get there? I thought she wasn't going?

Also the top one...is that Ray's wife? Or am I imagining things?

That is her mother with Domonique and her little brother. They decided to come.

Yes that is Dee, she was on the otherside of the center so I just snapped her picture.

I tried to get a picture of Ray on the stage but the picture was to blurry to actually see. He was the director of the bible drama.

S Sew Together Session  May 27, 28!
It's great when you are with friends of like mind who love the same things you do.  Well this weekend time to capitalize on that idea.
Time to Sew Together!!
I sent out the invites actually it was a series of text and phone calls and created a buzz for myself that is very uplifting!  I am so excited. 
The way I have envision this;  everyone will come over about 6 to 7 people and bring what ever project they are working on and sew in the same room together.  I just love this idea!   
JN is going to make a apron for her make up job.  She was asked to do the make for the  brothers who will be on screen at our Regional Convention!  I am so happy for her.   AA will be making curtains she is getting things ready  for her redecorating month. She said for us not to look for her in June because that is the time she set aside to redecorate her house and curtains are a big part of it.

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…
