Busy as a Bee

Oh, what a busy bee I have been. Working long hours, the past two weeks. Last weekend was busy, but I had time for friends and enjoyed the beautiful "fall" weather we have been experiencing, in the middle of July. I joined in my church's fellowship at a catfish dinner at a lodge on the Ohio river on Friday night. What beautiful scenery. Enjoying God' s masterpiece, the beautiful pictures. Just as Renee's son had described.

School semester will be starting again, and I will have to get back in my routine. I am glad I took the summer off. I worked on my scrapbook, visited with friends & family, and caught up on things around the house.

I miss getting the kids ready for the school year....going to Wal-mart to get their supplies and of course we needed a new back pack every year....going clothes shopping....and trying to get them back in the routine of going to bed earlier.....seems like just yesterday.


  1. Really nice post, Sandy. And thanks for linking to the other blog, that was very thought-provoking too. I'm glad you've had some time to enjoy yourself and I love your faith, it inspires me.
    All the best, Eileen

  2. Time sure does fly, doesn't it? Even though it was hectic, I really enjoyed it. My kids were fun and now they are getting their little ones ready for school.
    That picture you used is just beautiful, Sandy...great choice!
    So good to hear that you have ahd such a fruitful time off period...we definitely need some vacation time ourselves.
    Being involved in church is so therapeutic, isn't it?

    blessings and hugs,


  3. Yes, I am very blessed to have my church, and church family. I am also blessed with great friends and family. Blessings and hugs to you.


  4. Hi Sandy. I wanted to stop in again and see what your summer days have been like. I'm glad that you went to the river and enjoyed food and fellowship. I can't imagine having fall-like weather in July....I only wish for those types of days here. I wanted you to know that I'm thinking of you. School starts for the teachers here in a week. It was supposed to start on Thursday, but our Governor issued a furlough (3 days) for all state employees, so the teachers will lose two days of their pre-planning. I'm retired....but I still work for the school system (testing the potentially gifted students.)
    I will start the first week of August.
    Take care of you, and know that I'm thinking of you.
    Smiles from Jackie

  5. So happy when I read how you spent your July although Fall weather is not good. I am still clutching tightly to summer....not ready to let go just yet. Enjoy your classes Sandy, you are an inspiration....:-) Hugs
