Sunday Morning Coming Down
Good Sunday morning to you all, since I've posted, we've had another snow here in North Alabama. It began about 6 PM on Wednesday night and by 10 we had 3 inches. Schools were canceled again on Thursday but by noon the roads were clear and dry. This weekend it has been in the 50s and sunny. I've begun to see more bird activity. The Bluebirds have been flocking to the suet and also checking out the houses. Last night, Honey Bear and I sat outside with a fire in the fire pit just as it began to get dusky dark. We saw the Bluebirds pile into an old gourd we have hanging in one of the pine trees. Guess they are sleeping there. The Chickadees are checking out their yellow box. We moved it from Memphis, we had Chickadees nest in it there. So far, not here. Maybe this year.
Our annual Celebration Day is coming up on the 19th for the club. It used to be called Achievement Day. It is the time we honor all the hard work the clubs in the county have put in during the previous year...Daughter is planning it this year and it will be at her church. Yesterday we went out to find some items for table decorations and goody/treat bags for each place setting. We're expecting about 60 ladies to participate. The theme is "Night at the Oscars" and the speaker, from the church, titled his speech: Best Actress Award: Mary or Martha. I thought that was fitting.
In the meantime, 10 of our club members are going on retreat this week, Tuesday-Thursday. I am looking forward to this. I still have to gather some things to work on while there.
As I mentioned, I had the February club meeting here at my house on Thursday. 18 ladies were present. It was a challenge to fit them all into my living room but we managed.
If you read the Daybook post last week, the picture was of our boxwood by the front walk, with Christmas lights on it and then the 4 inches of snow we got on Christmas Day. I think Kayren's guess came closest.
I have a question for you: "What color dominates your closet?"
Have a great Sunday....I'm off to dress for church.
