Sunday - March 20th
Sunday we had a wedding at church....after the service. Mr. M.L. and Heather got married. It was such a sweet ceremony and after the ceremony we went to fellowship hall for feasting and celebrating. It was a glorious and fun day! The weather was perfect. After the party they went to Cheeha Mtn. in the Talledega National Forest for their honeymoon. Cheeha is the highest point in Alabama (little note of interest there).

I have been chomping at the bits to share today's pictures with you. I went to Mrs. Shirley and Mr. Denny's house on Tuesday after I got home from school because some of her orchids were blooming and I had asked her to let me know so I could come and take pictures of them. I don't know who was more delighted....me....or her.
This was my favorite orchid. It was like she was posing just for me. Her petals were spread out just perfect and the light was hitting her just right. How glorious orchids are.
Shirley had just added a new fountain to her room. It was seashells...another love Shirley and I share. I love beach motif. What a wonderful afternoon we had visiting in their home and sharing their beautiful stuff. Thanks Shirley and Denny for a great visit.

Getting ready for the big yard sale on Saturday. While Frank was at school, Savannah, Chris, Brian, Kat and I got most of the stuff out of the house and into the carport where we priced it for in the morning. We agreed to all get there around 6:30 so we could get the tables all up, out, set....and ready for customers. I got to sleep at the La Quinta about 11....and a phone call woke me up at 1. It was a wrong number. When my alarm went off a few hours later...I wanted to die. Starbucks saved the day. There is nothing like a good Caramel Machiatto to boast your energy level.
Saturday, March 25th
Frank and Kat sneaking a hug while we were getting the stuff out onto the driveway....and Frank was leaving for Huntingdon. He was going to call us during his lunch break.
During a trip into the house for a break I opened the kitchen window and sneaked a couple of shots of the people shopping. It was a fast and furious day. I have never seen so many people at a yard sale....it was so fun. The result was over 800.00 raised and Kat and Brian's trip is set. Whooo Hooo!
Kat and Mandy at the end of the day. Everything we didn't sell had been packed up and disposed of....and we were all zonked. You can tell both of them are young....they have been up since before daylight and still look fresh and beautiful. Me....that is a different story....and why I am behind the camera!
It was dark by the time we got the sign changed and the bulletins done. When we got back to Rock Mills....we made an appearance at a beautiful 40th wedding anniversary party in our fellowship hall, did the bulletins, changed the sign, ran to Wal-mart for sodas...came home and watched Yogi Bear on TV. It was a cute movie. If you haven't seen it and like a good clean movie, then it is your choice. I am glad I did not pay to see it at the theater. I would have hated to pay that much for it....but then I am a tightwad when it comes to stuff like that. Most of the time I would rather just watch it on DVD at home. We were rudely awaken by the storm siren around midnight. Randolph County was under a tornado warning. This morning it is gray and rainy.....but...God made sure yesterday was beautiful for that yard sale. Have a blessed day!
