I have been so busy this summer, there has been little time for blogging and visiting. It seems only yesterday we were waiting for Summer to arrive. Now it is almost over. Our Granddaughter will go back to school this Friday.

In no time Fall will be on it's way!!

I have spent my Summer with many first time experiences.

I went to Camp with a dear friend and 9 young people. I had never been to camp even as a child or youth. I have been married for 35 years and this was the first time I had ever been away from my husband. When one of us goes to the hospital the other sets by the bed and never leaves. This was a learning experience for both of us.

I had a really good time with the young people we took to camp. They are so special and I learned so much from them.

We returned on Saturday and I hit the ground running as Bible School started on Monday. It was a very rewarding week again as the youth helped us in VBS. I got to visit with them some more and get to know them even better. I am here to tell you if these young people stay focus as they are now our church will be in good hands in the years to come. I cannot say enough about this group and their leaders are doing an outstanding job with them.

On Saturday I had to defrost my freezer. As I was finishing with mopping the floor I slipped and fell on my bottom. As I went down I twisted to the right. I waited 4 days and then as I was not getting better went to the doctor. I have an acute strain to the lumbar and contusion and swelling to the right knee. Also I guess due to the pain my blood pressure was 189 over 104. So I must stay off my feet and get lots of rest for ten days. I am to take my meds. and go back to the doctor to see if my blood pressure is down and my back and knee are healing.

This is no fun for me. I do not like to stay in bed. I am a late night person and it is a bummer to go to bed early.

I am not able to set for long at the computer yet. So will be visiting with you a little each day and trying to keep up with everyone.

I wish all of you a very Happy Weekend.

Oh how I loved camp! 4H and Girl Scout!!! Now, you work on getting that blood pressure under control and your bones in proper order, too!!! You'll be back to a late nighter in no time!


Hi Mary, fun for you for awhile!
Maybe you can catch up on some reading or handiwork??
I'll pray for quick healing and for your blood pressure to get back to normal.
Take care!!

You sure were busy, sorry it had to end in bed time, hope you are doing alright. I went to camp once with the young people and my grand-daughter, it was fun and an experience. You take it easy and get back on your feet soon.
