This past week was just what I needed. I got some time to rest and relax. I got a little something for myself too.
Saturday, I enjoyed my morning talked with my Love, Jo Anne. It has been stressing being away from her lately with her being sick. I hate not being able to take care of her when she is sick. We are hoping to get the approval this month. It sucks having issues to work out with the government, especially when it should not be as big of an issues as the government is making it. We have no doubt we will work it all out and be together soon.
After talking with Jo Anne, I headed to the Henderson County Friends of the Library Book Sale on the other side of town. This was the first weekend and I normally get books for my personal library on this weekend but I did not see any books on my must have list. I have not decided if I will buy some books this year for my online store or not. I still have a ton of books I need to get working on listing.
Sunday, I woke to go to church but fell back asleep before get up. I hate missing church. My week seems to go better when I start it by going to church. When I did get up, I helped my sister to prepare everything for the picnic her and my aunt planned as a surprise birthday party for my mom. My sister left to head out to Mills River to get setup and meet my aunt and uncle, while I picked up my mom and my friend, Seth. When I was growing up, we would go out to Mills River several times a year. It has been a long time since we have gone out there as a family. My niece and nephews enjoy themselves while we were there. My dog, Rayna, got in the water with no problem. I wish I could take her out more. She stay with us the whole time and not run off. While I was cooking she lay down and waited for me to finish.
After we eat and played in the water, we headed before to my mom's house and had the cake. Mom enjoyed her surprise party and seeing her sister.
