That Was The Week That Was…

I’m going to try to ease my way back into blogging on a regular basis.  I think I’ll start with a weekly post, and see how it goes; hence, the title of this post.  By the way, does anybody remember the little news skit that used to come on television by the same title?  I think there was a comedy skit, with that title, included on the show Laugh Inn, back in the late 60’s or early 70’s.

This week started out busy, like Mondays often do.  I cleaned up the house, while my husband, Ed, mowed the lawn.  After lunch, we went over and helped clean the church.  It was our first time being put on a regular “cleaning crew”, since joining the church in February.  Our church has six cleaning crews, with approximately six people on each crew.  January and July will be our cleaning months.

Tuesday was not a typical day because Ed had an appointment with his ophthalmologist, to have a laser procedure performed.  Ed had cataract surgery done about five years ago, but, since then, he’d developed some scar tissue behind the lens of his left eye.  The laser procedure was to break up the scar tissue, which it did.  We didn’t quite know what to expect, but the procedure was quick and painless.

On Wednesday, Ed and I had a surprise visit from our pastor.  (He stopped by to see how Ed was doing after the laser procedure.)  Boy was I thankful the house wasn’t in the mess it sometimes is!  When our pastor arrived Ed was out working in the garden, while I was inside struggling to sew a hook and eye on the jacket of a church dress.  As I struggled with threading the needle and getting the hook and eye straight, I was thinking to myself, Why does everything have to get so difficult when we get older? In the endEd and I had a nice visit with our pastor, and were glad he came to see us.  Our pastor is about the same age as our grown children.  Ed and I are getting old!!!

One thing I’ve discovered about our new church–they like to eat, and they do a lot of it!  Wednesday night was no exception, when someone brought an ice cream cake in celebration of an upcoming birthday.  Will I ever lose the unwanted pounds I’ve gained since coming there?  Probably not anytime soon, since we’re having “finger foods” tomorrow night after church, and next Wednesday is “Family Night” during which we also eat.

I’ve been wanting to go to St. Simon’s Island for the past several months.  I finally got the opportunity on Thursday.  Ed, our daughter, our granddaughter, and I piled into our van and made the two hour trip.  We unloaded and set up our chairs under our favorite oak tree.  About twenty minutes later, it began to rain!  The sun was still shinning while it sprinkled, so we stuck it out until the rain stopped a few minutes later.  The tree shielded us from most of the rain, plus we also covered up with the straw mats we’d brought along.  What a sight we must have been, all covered with those huge striped mats!!!

Finally, after two of those “sunshine showers”, the skies clouded over and heavy rain began.  We gave up and called it “quits”.  By then it was lunchtime, so we rode over to our favorite eating place, “Southern Soul Bar-b-que”.  The place was crowded, but, almost immediately, four bar stools [in a row] opened up so we could all sit down together.  As always, the food was delicious, and by the time we finished eating, the skies had cleared!

We rode back over to “The Village”, toured a few of the shops, then spent the rest of our time under the gazebo beside the water.  Our trip didn’t turn out quite like we’d planned, but we had a good time–and we laughed a lot!  I’m sorry I didn’t take any pictures.  On second thought, I’m not… Our daughter took a couple of pictures with her phone, and they’re awful–at least the ones of me are.  Just think beached whale…and you’ll get the idea.

Today (Saturday) I’m still a bit tired.  So far, I’ve only managed to change the sheets on my bed, then bake a pound cake for tomorrow night’s church supper.  The cake turned out ugly…sigh.  I hate when that happens.  Grandma always said, “ugly cakes taste best.”  If that’s true, this cake should be delicious!

Until next time…

  1. Ugly cakes DO taste good so don’t worry about it. I’m glad you made it to the Island before the summer is over!! Sorry you nearly got rained out but glad you had a good time in spite of the rain showers.

  2. I like your update post. Glad you got to St.Simon’s Island. Sorry about the rain but it still sounded like a good day and a meal at your favorite place is always a nice thing! Glad you are enjoying your church.
