Busy as a Bee~!

Goodness to BEE~! I have been so busy, I haven't even had time to look at my favorite blogs to see what you have all posted.. I really miss all this~! I'm in charge of organizing a Women's Retreat with my friend Holly for our church. We are trying to get the program all set up and we have been searching on the Internet for a good DVD to buy to show to the girls.. This is our 3rd Women's Retreat and we are so excited. Last year we had 23 girls come.. Holly and I are also getting the music picked out.. It's going to be April 15 and 16th.. at a Campfire Camp.. One of the girls offered to plan for the food for Friday night, Sat morning and for lunch.. Oh that was a relief.. We usually do the whole thing ~ invite the girls to come and we serve and pamper them all. This year we have had lots of girls tell us they want to help out... YEAH~! Holly and I try and get things all organized one month before the event.. That way we just have the little things that come up to get done. Our theme this year is "Beautiful".. We have lots of Christian Music with the title beautiful.. We found one Joyce Meyer DVD for Friday night.. it's a funny one..
We try to keep Friday night light and fun and then get serious on Sat..

Leaving Friday morning to go to Barrington, Illinois for our son's wedding.. He is marrying Lisa.. She is a wonderful girl.. I will be staying all next week to take care of grandchildren (3) while they go on their honeymoon to California.. Dave is coming back home on Sunday..with our daughter Tracie and Ben.. He will come back and get me when Rich and Lisa get home. I have big plans for the girls.. They want to learn how to knit.. So I'll be teaching them how to make easy knitted slippers. I'm going to teach them how to make bread, cookies.. We are going to give them to the neighbors... act of kindness projects.

Our daughter Tracie called me this evening. She said on her way to school a deer hit her car. She said she was just fine. The windshield is broken , side mirror hanging and huge dent on the front fender.. She can't get driver door open. She stopped by our house and showed us and a big patch of deer hide was sticking out of the fender.(the deer died) I was just glad she wasn't hurt.. But her little car is a mess.. We parked it into the garage and she took our truck.. Well have to have insurance company come and take a look at the damage.

Suppose to snow tomorrow evening.. not too much just enough to let us know that it's still winter.
Have a Tiggeriffic Day~ Ta Ta For Now...from Iowa

Busy but all in a good way. Congrats on your son's wedding! I'm sure you will enjoy spending time with some of your other grandkids that don't live nearby. I know you must miss them. :)

Congratulations to your son.

Enjoy yourself with the grands. It sounds like you have some great projects planned.

Hitting deer is a scary thing. We drive very slowly when we pass some creeks because we have seen deer crossing the road several times in these locations.

Sounds like your life is full.Mahaska County Conservation does a ladies day out that works with outdoor skills and learning that is a lot of fun. They have archery, trap, GPS, cooking and a list of fun things many have never tried.
