A few weeks ago, we put on a wedding shower for a friend's daughter and Denise, Penny, and I did a skit singing "Going to the Chapel". We decided it wouldn't be complete without wedding dresses. So here are the pictures of us crazy girls! As we were singing, a couple of other friends were on the side holding up visuals. As the song started we walked in like going down the isle, and then did motions during the song. At the end, we got the bride to be up with us, put a vale on her and she sang with us
After a week of fun and relaxation, it is time to come back to reality. Had a great time in Grand Junction last week. I did think of home quite a bit. The morning we left I received a phone call that there was a bad wreck at home. So this was on my mind the whole day, then the next day I received another call about another wreck at home. Needless to say my heart was home with those families.
I spent a day at the spa (relaxing), a day driving through the wine country and orchards(beautiful), and alot of time shopping(exspensive). I am always glad to get home, except when you go back to work and play catch up. Also this week was the start of a Countywide Non-denomination Church Revival that is called "Crossroad Crusade". It is for 5 nights. I was asked about 6 months ago to be Treasurer for the organization. Also I joined the community choir and my church praise band is playing on 2 nights. I play the electric keyboard which I love. So I have been quite busy since I got home.
The people putting on this revival are affiliated with the Billy Graham organization. They have their own people putting it on. Us locals provide the music, place to have it, sound people, etc. I have truly loved singing in the community choir. It is so great to hear all the beautiful voices we have in our community.
The praise band in my church was started about 2 years ago when our new pastor's wife wanted to play more up to date music. She plays quitar and was in a praise band at their prior church. She has all kinds of music. We have about 7 people with us now. The church purchased a Yamaha electric piano (for me to use). It is awesome. It can do anything!
After the busiest month in my office, I look forward to the first of May each year. Not only because things slow down a bit at work, but because I get to travel with my husband for a week of luxery. He is a co-chair for a school for electrical lineman in Grand Junction. So I go along with him, sleep in, lounge by the pool, shop, and just enjoy myself. I really love the alone time in the mall! I eat at the Olive Garden, which he hates. I visit the wineries in the area, and stock up on wine. This is some of the best fruit wine in the world! The evenings are spent with him and all the young linemen from the school. One night they have vendors with booths selling the various items for the job, they also have kegs of beer. Another night a local vendor from Fruita has everyone out to their home for a big bar-q-que, kegs of beer (again). So until I get back, take care!
This last weekend was we went to Bill's folks to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. It was a nice weekend. Instead of taking them out to a nice restaurant we brought the stuff to cook in. We had filets wrapped with bacon, shrimp and the works. I had a pretty cake made, and after supper, a few family came and they opened their presents while we had champagne and cake. It was just simple, but the way they liked it.
Anyway, back to the bikers. Bill's brother is currently working in Alaska and his Harley is in a trailer parked in his folk's yard. His brother specifically asked us to take it out and give it a spin everynow and then. It wasn't complete without his dew rag and leather jacket. It was a little chilly so the jackets felt nice. It was so fun. This is a dream of Bill and I to ride a Harley through the mountains! Maybe someday.
Thought it was about time to update "about me". In the past year we lost our old lab, Gus, so we just have 1 now, Jake. My husband and I love to camp, ride the harley, golf, we are really enjoying the empty nest years. I love to sing, play piano, and Margarita Friday's.
