Sunday's are always busy days with church and I always enjoy it. This week right after the morning service the teen group of the church had an auction. The first annual one and we had a lot of fun.
The main part of the auction were the kids themselves. They were auctioned off to the highest bidder for 8 hours of work. The winner gets a teen for two, 4 hour work days. They will do yard work, babysitting, and things like that. Work and time worked out between the teen and the winning bidder.
They were trying to make money for activities and mission trips.
Ken bid on a teen named John to help take our back deck apart some time in the summer.
There were donated items that were auctioned off too. I made three dozen of those famous chocolate chip cookies and they went for $25. Someone bought them for Pastor Leatherman.
I also donated a baby blanket I made out of weave-it squares. First time one of my blankets ever made money. I was happy that the kids got $85 for it. You can see the blanket HERE.
♡ ♡ ♡ ♡Yesterday morning we did some food shopping and other errands and went to Happy Trails in the afternoon.
Sunday and Monday were beautiful warm sunny mornings for walking and I walked my usual 6 miles. The daffodils are now out around here and the grass us turned green almost over night.
|First Daffodils of the season|
♡ ♡ ♡ ♡This morning it was still warm out at 56 but was cloudy and looked like rain so I took along my umbrella. Didn't bother with rain pants or my new rain shoes because chances were it wouldn't even rain.
I went to the post office first and dropped my mail in the slot. Then just walked around town. Some light showers had me putting the umbrella up and down quite a few times. Still wasn't getting wet feet, but then about a half mile from home, it got very windy and started raining hard and my feet and my sweat pants up to my knees got pretty wet. Still it wasn't cold so it didn't much matter.
I saw a couple of rabbits and heard a woodpecker. I noticed that Saber's dog run got moved way to the back of her yard which I saw on my loop around the ball park.
Didn't see any people out.
I walked 6 miles.
♡ ♡ ♡ ♡The temperature as been falling since this morning and it is now 38 degrees and supposed to go down in the 20's tonight. Only one night though and we should get spring back again tomorrow afternoon.
Took this picture out the window. The chipmunk enjoyed the seeds from the bird feeder.
A happy day to you.
