Golf Trip......

Accomplished my entire list before Thom returned from his Pinehurst golf trip. He had a terrific time with 23 of his golfing buds. The weather was super hot but they enjoyed the few days away regardless.

Divot and I are glad to have the man of the house back where he belongs......

Sweet, Sweet Days....

Brian enjoyed sleeping in and I had my morning at Miracle Hill. An easy afternoon and a trip back to Gastonia to return him to his mom. Loved my time with Brrrrrian!

Today was a short one at CPC as I was unsure if the Tarantino kids would be here and I unscheduled my afternoon clients just in case. It becme catch up with chore time and a totally quiet evening. 

No alarm tomorrow.......nice......

Weekend Stuff.....

Friday and Saturday were filled with chores and errands. We also manned the CPC booth in the evening at Fairview Baptist Church mission conference.

Sunday the Gastonia crowd arrived after church. We celebrated Aunt Joan's birthday with a great meal and the typical Camp Carney array of summer activities. We closed a full day with a bit of Olympic viewing to cheer on the USA.

Brian spent the night. I arose and went for a haircut this morning.....he is still snoozing away. Fine with me....let him enjoy the end of his summer vacation. Some pool time and I'm sure a few games then dinner out at the Olive Garden (got a gift card).

Thankful he still wants to spend time with the old folks.....

Furniture Bank......

Yesterday was a crazy great Wednesday at CPC. All four of my clients kept their appointments and there were many serious discussions along with many lighter moments of sharing.

Thom had a terrific golf day. I didn't make it home till after 5 so it was a reheated pizza dinner and off to church. Last night was designated to collect household goods for the Corner of Hope ministry and we traveled separately to provide 2 minivans for donations. We filled one but that was still great!

This morning we delivered the items and took a brief tour of the storefront facility. I am hoping we can do more throughout the year and spread the word to provide more contributions of furniture and all sorts of home necessities to those in need....free of charge. Thom left from Inman to attend a day of meetings at CPC. I came back to the house.....lots to do always.

Another blessed Thursday in the books.....

Norm.....

Back to our routine on Monday. Thom spent the entire day taking care of registration and insurance and whipping the new acquisition back into shape. It looks pretty good for a 2001 vehicle with over 200,000 miles on it!

I spent the morning at Miracle Hill. It was Promise Point Store day and we had about a dozen "customers". The ladies especially enjoy "shopping" but our inventory is diminishing quickly and we have been considering ways to expand our item choices as well as increase our funding. 

MOPS steering committee met today and from there I did some catch up food shopping. Thom had a fun morning at Panther Camp then home to chores.

Good week so far......

Full Driveway......

Early service and SS this morning followed by laundry and lawn mowing later in the day.

We became the proud owners of a new (to us) vehicle at about 4 p.m. when our friends delivered it to our driveway. Not a planned purchase but too good to pass up and with Thom's van acting up a bit we thought it might be a good idea. They stayed to visit and it was a sweet time.

So ready for a peaceful evening.....

Music......

Olivia had an A+ performance last night. There were 7 beginner students of both piano and guitar and each played 3 simple selections....very cute!

We were up bright and early for our visitors. We were once again blessed with sunshine although the heat was oppressive.  Almost all the kids caught a fish and we took another float around the lake but most of the day was splashing in the cool of the pool. A full busy day that concluded near 4 o'clock when they loaded up for home. I decided to do my re-clean and finally hit the shower to refresh by about 6. Even managed some bike time for some real exercise.

Feet up soon ......
