This 'n That

The weekend is here and with it the sun is back out. We needed the rain and got a good soaking yesterday. I've been under the weather for a couple of days (some kind of stomach funk) but am feeling much better today. So today will be a do nothing day (like most lol) to recoup and get my strength back, since I haven't eaten for a couple of days. I got "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" (the original) from Netflex and after I fix something to eat I will settle in and watch it. I've seen it before, but it is such a feel-good movie I wanted to see it again.

I just got off the phone with #1 Son. Looks like I'm gonna have a job while I watch. He wanted to know if he could drop off some work clothes for me to wash for him. He's been working six days a week (second shift) and just hasn't had time to do it. He does so much for me, I sure don't mind doing a little laundry for him. He works for a company that builds stuff for FEMA trailers and they are working as fast as they can to get Texas supplied. This is usually the time of year they slow down, but not this year. He says if they keep up all the over time he will have enough savings to pay cash for a new car (which he has been planning to buy in 2009) and still have plenty of savings for a rainy day. Of course, he'll be completely worn out. lol.

One of the churches here is doing 'home made' TV dinners for $2 each and I ordered $28.00 worth during our Oktoberfest Festival. They are so good. Good old country cooking and much more food than the store bought kind. I can usually get 2 meals out of one dinner. Anyway, they are ready for pick up today so my daughter is going to get them for me. Isn't that a neat way to make extra money for the church?

Ok, rambling is done. Have a good weekend everyone.

Hugs, Joyce

  9. Hope you feel better, Joyce. We've all had that stomach thing here last weekend. It's been cold and drizzling here for a couple of days. Those $2 dinners sound really good and what a darned bargain they are. I would have stocked up also. Hope you have a good Sunday! HUGS

  10. That is a nice way to make money and you know the dinners are good home cooked meals even better. Sorry you're feeling bad hope you get better soon. I'm sure your son would appreciate you helping him out with the clothes if you're like me it's nothing I'm usually not doing much anyway. Well if you don't count tearing the house apart LOL. I have never seen that movie, well someday. Hope you enjoy and get some rest. Sounds like a good blanket day.
    Take care, Chrissie
