Today has been full of busy work. Good stuff to do but the day seems too short by the end – Bread ministry, staff meeting, School volunteering, picking up grandkids, another meeting tonight.
The longest part of the day may have been the half hour wait to pick up some KFC. I had the kids with me and it seemed like a good idea at the time. Till we had waited over half an hour by the time we got to the window to pay and pick up food only to be informed that if we wanted to we could wait another 15 minutes and then our order might be ready. Seemed a bit much so I declined and headed over to another chicken joint where we got our chicken and were home within 15 minutes. May be the last time I line up at KFC. Meanwhile the kids were super about the long wait in the car and were happily playing with each other. They were very hungry though when we did sit down to eat. Cleaned up their plates in no time.
At the meeting tonight we took on cleaning out a cupboard at the church. Sent a lot of really outdated Sunday School material to the recycle bin. Chucked a few vinyl records of someone telling stories and singing the choruses to go with the lessons. Really dated stuff. But there is some good stuff there too. We just do not have the number of kids of all ages to use the material but if anyone could use it – I would love to pack it up and ship it off to someone who would use it. We have some stuff by Groups, Hands on Bible Curriculum. 1997 that is still very usable. Curriculum plus learning labs full of active things to do. From toddler to Grades 5/6. Say the word, give me an address to ship it to and it is yours! It is not getting any younger!
We also have a couple of sets of curriculum for use with mentally challenged adults – very good stuff. We don’t have a need for this right now and would love to share it with anyone who needs this.
And that has been my day. Tomorrow I will be trying to put together a power point presentation to use at our church’s mortgage burning banquet on Dec. 5. Why didn’t people take more pictures back then? I may have to get creative and take random pictures of construction sites!
