Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters
I'm linking up to Carissa, check out her blog
  1. I can't get my home town (Minot, ND) off my mind. So many people dealing with disaster it makes my heart ache. Many of my high school classmates live in Minot or the surrounding area and have lost so much in this flood.
  2. I'm kind of stressed about the bake sale I'm having on Wednesday and Thursday this week to raise money for this flood. I want to make as much money as possible to donate so I'm constantly thinking of the best recipes, the set-up and what more I can do to raise sales. The office manager told me today that she was willing to front the bill to rent a popcorn machine and charge people 50 cents a bag that would all go towards my fundraiser. I was in shock of her generosity!
  3. On a happier note...I'm so excited for this weekend! We're going to the cabin with Chris's family (mom, bf, sister and her family and bf's kids and grand kids). It will be a busy place, but it will be lots of fun. Also excited to meet a family friend's new baby. He's just over a month old and will be joining us up there.
  4. Speaking of the cabin...all the kids are taking on a meal to make so Chris's mom doesn't have to foot the bill for food, worry about getting groceries, preparing it and washing dishes. We're bringing chicken sliders, coleslaw, baked beans, pasta salad and desert (which could be a wide variety of things). I'm so glad that we can contribute!
  5. I'm so happy for this beautiful weather we've gotten the past couple of days! Finally some sunshine is in the forecast. It's hard to believe that summer is almost half over and the very few sunny days we've had so far!
  6. I'm so happy and proud of my friend Sarah. She just graduated with her masters this past weekend! Her grad party was yesterday and it was great to see her (hardly seen her the past year since she's been buried in books and school work). What an accomplishment and now she gets to finish planning her wedding (getting married in Sept) and looking for a new job. Oh, and she might enjoy some of this summer before all that job stuff has to take place :)
This week is going to fly by and that's just fine with me. I have a ton of stuff to accomplish by the weekend, but I will have a great time doing it all! I hope everyone has a great week!

  1. Your hometown is in my thoughts. That is never fun to hear about and absolutely devastating to watch. Good for you for doing a bake sale! Very smart and that will definitely help out!
