My saturday night

I'm sitting here in a quiet kitchen waiting for the chocolate chip cookies to finish baking. The two youngest girls are in bed and everyone else is out/away. The two older girls have been working a youth group fund raiser the last two nights. They're selling fresh cookies during intermission at a local dance recital. Apparently this year is the most successful thus far. So much so that they called and asked me to make some cookies for tomorrow's session! So here I sit smelling chocolate chip cookies... and not allowed to taste them --ha! I'm telling myself that I'm better off this way anyhow!! I'm not sure it's working!!(I need every last one I can squeeze out of this recipe as I ran out of sugar and can't make more cookies!) I made the recipe on the Chipits bag which uses 2 cups of flour and is supposed to make 4 dozen cookies. I got 15 cookies out of it!! Okay so they're 3 inches across... :oD
Randal is out doing a local wine tour with the bus... he enjoys this as he is your typical boy that loves big trucks, buses, etc!! lol.. He just does this on the side.... usually works out to about every other weekend... we miss having him here when he's away doing this but I guess every bit helps. His been shuttling people around town off and on all day today and should be getting home tonight at about 1 am. That makes for a long day for him.
Tomorrow is Sunday and I'm on the worship team, which means that we leave the house at 8:30 am... ouch! I guess that's not really that early.. just is for a Sunday. The girls have their fundraiser again tomorrow afternoon and then we have our small group meeting at 5. It's looking like a busy day again tomorrow..
I've been working pretty much every day for the last couple of weeks. It's great exercise doing yardwork. I've been out enjoying the sun and fresh air. And all that fresh air sure makes me sleep well.
I hope you're all having a great weekend. Take care.

They made about $600 over Friday and Saturday night and Sunday afternoon... Not bad when they didn't have any expenses to cover for it! Who'd have thought one could make that much selling COOKIES!?!?! This goes to help them fund events that some kids would miss out on because of family financial situations and sometimes the youth will put something together for a needy family in town.

And what about you........?

You Are Periwinkle

You're very intuitive and sensitive. You often know other people better than they know themselves.
You're also quite optimistic, and you think well of yourself and others. You know your dreams will come true.
