6:00 p.m….I can’t even begin to tell you how far beyond tired I am. I haven’t slept much in the last 3 nights. Yesterday I did a ton of shopping.
Then this morning, we left the house at 9:30 for our monthly church workday. The first Saturday in December, we put up all the Christmas decorations in our sanctuary. And we fixed lunch. But since we are also having a special dinner for our pastor tomorrow after the morning service, we decorated the fellowship hall, too. We finished at 2:30, and then I had more shopping to do. Had to run back to Hobby Lobby to get candles for the tables.
When I was checking out at Hobby Lobby, I remembered I had not stopped at the Men’s Wearhouse to get our pastor a gift card. So I had to go back the same way I came. I was so looking forward to coming home and just sitting down.
In a little while, I need to make some gold bows to finish decorating the serving tables. We’ll take some good pictures tomorrow. We won’t have an evening service tomorrow, so Herb can have a day off. Steve and Dave (our youth/music minister) are both going to speak in the morning. And Beth and Laura (Herb’s daughter) are going to sing. It should be a good day.
Steve has been working on a beautiful wood desk set for Herb. It’s a clock, pen holder and paper tray. Brandon made the pen and mechanical pencil to go in the desk set. It is all gorgeous. Herb is going to love it, since he likes wood stuff.
I have to get up early in the morning to bake yeast rolls for the dinner. Beth is making another Snickers pie for the dessert table, and I think I will make some chocolate/caramel turtle cookie bars. And I have to call KFC to order the chicken.
I better get busy. I need to print some pictures we have of Herb over the last 15 years. We are going to display them on a table in the fellowship hall.
My knee feels like there’s a basketball in there.
