Old TV Shows...
What do Happy Days, Saved By the Bell, Hawaii 5-0 and Mickey Mouse Club all have in common? They were the themes for our office dress-up day! Everyone was part of a themed team and decorated their cubicles and put together costumes for a fun day. I was even complimented on my costume by some of the regulars at Starbucks when I ran in for a coffee this morning =) Our office was very creative and had costumes ranging from Alice in Wonderland to Detective Steve McGarrett. Lunch was a smorgasbord of 50's, 80's & Hawaiian delicacies followed by some fun desserts and last but not least our Registrar employee appreciation awards. We all had a great time together!

Can you believe it was a year ago today that Grace, Jon, Christine and I were on an airplane headed for Italy! Oh how I wish I was there today...

I Love Traditions!

One of my yearly Fall traditions is picking pomegranates with Charlotte. Saturday afternoon we donned our grubby clothes, work gloves and picked a bunch of these beautiful and delicious fruit. Some of them were quite big this year! After all the picking was done we took them up to the porch and squeezed and squeezed. Grace joined in the squeezing fun too. It's a very messy process but totally worth it! I kept popping those little "jewels of goodness" into my mouth... Mmm so good!!! Charlotte's son Bill even made a pomegranate smoothie for us to enjoy at the end of the afternoon. Can't wait to make the jelly now!

Thank you John!
This week marked our final consulting sessions with John who has been our Banner consultant since the beginning of the whole software conversion process. Has it really been almost two years? We were fortunate to him for this whole journey and will miss him a lot.

Busy week...Another week has gone by in a blur. Last weekend was the big 41 celebration for Timothy and we had a grand time together. From the delicious pandebonos and bunuelos, BBQ, to the fun shopping we enjoyed the time together. Margie had a blast trying on princess dresses at the store! Then it was off for a quick trip to Yuma. I love the time I can spend enjoying great food with great friends. The work week was busy as ever since all of us managers are stepping it up and filling in for our boss. We are hoping someone will get hired soon!!! After all that good food over the weekend I gained a pound but tried to step it up a bit in the exercise department. I have been listening to "Jane Eyre" on my hourly walks and enjoying that a lot. This weekend was a catch up on doing chores and laundry day but my favorite day this week was today. We had a reading service at church today. We are starting a new series on the book of Isaiah at Grace. So our church has reading services where we read entire portions at a time. Today Erik Thoennes lead by reading Isaiah chapters 1-6. Interspersed between the reading were some wonderful songs. A few brand new ones written by our worship leader. I feel so blessed to have such inspiring elders leading us! I think Fall has probably decided to stay. There has definitely been a change in the weather. I will truly miss the sunny, warm summer days... but they will be back again next year.
