Well today is our Friday! Thanks to the Thanksgiving holiday and no work on the actualy Friday...woooot!
Oh we need to let everyone know that this past Saturday we went to this local ministry called Graceworks and it a place where people can donate stuff they do not want or need any longer and also it is a food pantry donation center. It is a great ministry that helps provide for the needy in the area. For the food pantry the months of November and December are their greatest donation times for the entire year. So as a community group we went over there and help sort out tons of food onto the shelves.
What's great is that it was a lot of fun for us even though it took up our Saturday morning and was work, we all had fun in doing it and helped Graceworks in getting organized in getting food out to the needy.
What's even funnier is that I was taking true ownership of some of the sections...example: the Soup section was all divided up into Chicken Noodle(which was #1 soup donated), Tomato, Cream Of's, Broths, then all the Campbells Select soups were grouped together.
Well everytime I came over with soups to put up I would find Tomato in with the Chicken Noodle...so I would then stop everything and organize it all before I started up packing my box of soup cans. I did that with very section I came across.
I just didn't want to do things half right...and it was sad to me when I found sections unorganized and scattered. So for those 2 hours I tried my best to get it as organized as I could. I don't know that it'll make a difference, but it made a difference to me.
Monday night we had our community group Thanksgiving meal...but instead of cooking we all just went to Crackel Barrel. Ha! But it was good. We did, however, all made desserts! So after dinner we went back to our house and had waiting: 2 pumpkin pies, a pecan pie, a chocolate pecan pie (Amy was proud of that one, and it was sooo grood [good and great]), a fruit salad, and homemade banana pudding. Oh man, we fulfilled the Thanksgiving tradition of eating until you're on the verge of it about to all come back up. Ha!
It was all soooo grood!
