Menu Plan - Week 13
This week seemed to be an "off and on" week. One day I would have off and the other it was most definitely on.
I started the week by baking up a storm. I hadn't had many baking days as of late so it was nice to be in the kitchen and my people appreciated it too since we were out of breakfast foods for the most part.
Tuesday, I spoke to a group of young ladies about the realities of finance/budgeting when you get married; I called it "From Dad to Lad." I then had a quick meeting to discuss some upcoming classes that I'll be teaching in conjunction with the Boys & Girls Club's ACE program. That afternoon I had a parent meeting at school and a PTA meeting that night.
That's a glimpse of what I'm talking about with an "Off and On" week; it vacillated all the time.
And don't forget to sprinkle in the knitting, voice, piano, and guitar lessons throughout the week, oh, and Engineer suffering from allergies just to make life a little more interesting.
The school week ended with Engineer and I going to support Diva at PSIA (interscholastic competition). She competed in both Prose Interpretation and Ready Writing. She placed third in Prose Interpretation with her excerpt from The Secret Garden. I felt she should have placed higher as she won her heat in the preliminaries, but then again, I'm a bit biased.
Saturday our church had FreeBay which is like a garage sale but everything is free. :) It was going pretty well until a lady missed the curb and face-planted onto the concrete. Everyone was thankful that one of the event coordinators is a nurse and her husband is a fireman who happened to be working just up the road. The lady was in excellent hands and was being sent off in the ambulance covered in prayer. I do hope she's okay.
That night we had dinner with friends...one of whom also happens to be the French cuisine instructor that my girlfriends and I take classes under from time to time. Dinner was divine; as to be expected. I had never been so glad that I chose to wear a flowy top and leggings to dinner. ;)
This week, the local COTA team is aiming to finish up the campaign - right on schedule.
Please keep the Herman family and our team in your prayers as we sprint towards the finish line.
