Wednesday & Thursday September 8 & 9, 2010


It was cloudy this morning but fairly warm for my walk. The sun did come out and then we had some rain later in the afternoon. A real mixed bag. It's been the same all week.

This afternoon I attended the Volunteer Fair. I registered as a person who is interested in volunteering then went around to the various booths to find out what might interest me.

The first stop was the Gordon Pipe Band. They have need for people to run them back and forth on parade routes, people to carry flags at the head of the parade and such and they also tried to talk me into learning to play the bagpipes. Apparently they teach for free and there's only eight notes so it's not that difficult. Since I already know music...well I took two years of lessons when I was about six. Hmmmm, maybe.....

I moved on to several other booths but the next one that caught my eye was researching genealogy at the Heritage Museum. Apparently people come in with requests to have someone search their family tree - right up my alley!

My next interest stop was at REAL. They are all about recycling. Something else that I'm interested in. There was even talk of crafting. Wow!


Happy Birthday to Me! Too bad the weather didn't cooperate. I woke up to a rainy day so took the day off from walking. I received lots of Facebook greetings and emails. It's so nice to be remembered!

After wearing glasses for over 50 years I decided to splurge today and went and got my eyebrows tweezed. I can't do it myself, it hurts! She offered to wax but I thought this time I'd go with tweezers. They look great!

When I got home I got a birthday phone call from my stepdaughter in Columbus. Thanks, Michelle!

I had put pork tenderloin, veggies and rice in the crockpot this morning so didn't have to worry about dinner. Since Gordon's birthday is exactly a week later than mine (although he's much older LOL) we usually go out for dinner on the weekend between.


  1. Many Happy Returns, Sandra and Gordon!
    You have so many interesting things going on in your community, no wonder you are there.
    I love to hear about it. Thanks.
    Happy Trails, Penny, TX

  2. Sandra,
    On your blogger ID, I noticed that you have some none Blogger blogs listed that you follow. I'm wondering how you did this, and if they show up on your dashboard? I like using the dashboard, but don't know how to get some blogs on there. Can you help me? :)
