Frank was gone this weekend. I had the house all to myself. I started out my day by getting a mani/pedi at L.A. Nails right here in downtown Roanoke. There is nothing better than a pamper session. I even paid the extra ten dollars for the deluxe pedi. The deluxe version means you get a salt scrub, a eucalyptus massage...complete with a little reflexology, and then a papaya lotion rub....topped off with hot towels (and were they hot). I think I actually drooled in the chair. My toes are now a really cute cotton candy pink. I even wore flip flops and capri pants all day. It was heavenly! While I was sitting there I began to chuckle to myself as I thought of a comedian I had seen do a skit about a day in the nail salon. I found it especially funny when the manicurist looked at my hands and asked me if I wanted (what sounded like) krickle gel for my nails. After the mani/pedi I came home to tackle my nasty house. I have been busy for the past two Saturdays and not been able to clean like I like to. There is nothing better smelling to me than floors mopped with Fabuloso (the lavender one). I did the unspeakable though...when I got home I ate my bacon/egg biscuit I picked up at BK....another splurge....then sat down and watched a movie about a woman with a mother who had dementia. For the next two hours I was engrossed in the story of what could be my own life. At the end I found myself sitting in the chair sobbing and did not even realize it. After the movie I got up and tackled the house and the more I cleaned the better I felt. By the time Frank got home I was proud of my accomplishments. We went to the church and did the bulletins for tomorrow, went to eat, got gas for my car, picked up a couple of items at Wally World...and came home. What a great day! I hope your day was a good one too. I cannot wait to post my pictures for P365 this week. Be sure and check back with me tomorrow and see what I did with my new camera. I have had a blast this week.
I am a woman who wears many hats and loves them all. I am a singer - I sing with the group Still Magnolias. I was part of the original First United Methodist Church Arbor Praise Team until we moved. After 24+ years of teaching English 11 and Spanish I - II at Benjamin Russell High School I decided to take a job closer to home. I now teach Spanish I & 2 at Randolph Co. High School and Wadley. I thought I was getting close to retirement and looking forward to it, but decided to move my cheese and try something different. I am a preacher's wife and a preacher myself. My husband Frank is the pastor at Rock Mills United Methodist Church and I am the pastor at Midway (Wedowee). It has made our conversations interesting, to say the least.
