Maybe if I try being depressed the time will not go so fast. Nah, to much good stuff going on to be depressed.
A little update on the results of our church auction. Unbelievable is the only word that comes to mind. People were spending money like crazy. $100.00 for a pound of Bourbon Balls, 2100.00 for a quilt, 37.50 for a pint of my Roasted Tomato and Black Bean Soup, actually that Scotty's soup. $375.00 for a yard decoration of dried up corn stalks, with pumpkin and squash around it. It really was beautiful. People were buying Jam Cakes like they were never going to get another one as long as they live.
It was a perfect day, beautiful weather and all. Our total was right at $9,000.00 dollars. We were all very happy at church on Sunday. It wasn't all about the money. It was everyone working together and having fun, seeing people you haven't seen since last year or longer. Some people I hadn't seen since I was a kid. Old boyfriends from the third grade.
Some guys is introducing me to people I went to grade school with and I didn't even know who he was.
I was so busy visiting I missed 4 items I wanted to bid on. Yes, I live in a wonderful little country community that I wouldn't take anything for. Old Union Christian Church's Lords Auction has been going on each year since 1947. I know this how...because Louise(92) told me so.
Yes I feel good just being a small part of this.
