Too Busy To Blog
I just realized how busy I have been lately and haven't been able to get any "blog time". We do a fair amount of fund raisers through our church. We have a Teen Dance that we work at once a month all year, and now the Fish Fries. I show up around 2:30 on Fridays to help with the desserts and try to stay for some of the clean up. Then we have a load or two of greasy stinky towels to wash. Thank goodness for Borax.
The picture above is our desserts this past Friday. We have gone back and forth with weather or not to serve homemade desserts. Some years we have and some not. With the economy the way it has been we weren't sure if we would have that many people wanting to pay for the fish dinners, when you can go to McDonald's and get a fish meal for $4 or $5. We decided homemade desserts would be a plus. They were! We have had some nice crowds.
There are so many more charities that need donations right now with so many out of work people. Our funds may start to dwindle quickly.
We are trying to figure out ways for some of the younger women to get involved in charitable work, by making our meetings and activities fun. That is a challenge. So many young women have so much on their plate already, with young children and homes to take care of and after school events. I am afraid it will be tough to recruit some. We'll see.
So this is where a lot of my time has been spent lately. I will get to spend the next two days with Maddie.
I have had an odd thing happen the past 2 days. I have been sneezing like a maniac. Allergies! I usually don't get them. I don't know know why I am this year. We hardly have anything out in bloom yet. Only tiny buds on some trees, so far.
Have a great week!
