A rainy Sunday....a busy Monday

Nothing beats waking up to the sound of pouring rain on a Sunday morning.  If nothing else, it was a great excuse to be lazy all day.  However, Dave shocked surprised me by suggesting that we get out some umbrellas and take our walk outside in the rain! It was actually great getting out there...and, the rain actually stopped midway through.

The rest of the day was pretty much spent doing absolutely nothing at all....just a lot of games.... and a lot of eating! 

Nice.... : )

Monday arrived with a full slate.

First and foremost was the fact that a close girlfriend of mine was in Atlanta while her grown daughter was having a very serious operation.  We all had the family in our prayers as the morning went by....and then felt a huge sense of relief and joy when the news finally came.  The 4 hour surgery had gone well and the doctor was very pleased with the outcome. What incredibly wonderful news to hear...all of our prayers had been answered. 

The next several hours were spent at another Girlie's house where a group of us stamped, stuffed, and sealed about 1000 invitations.  These were beautiful pink invites to a very special birthday celebration this October.  My dear friend, Carole, who is a breast cancer survivor, has decided to celebrate her special day by turning the family store "pink" and having a  party.  That night, she will be honoring her wonderful team of doctors tas well as raising money for breast cancer research.

I can't think of a better or more important way to celebrate one's birthday...
After all  of the envelopes were stamped, stuffed, and sealed, our Monday Mah Jongg group had their game.

It was a nice ending to a great, and busy, day.
