Not much goin' on.

Upper Deerfield Twp,  NJ

It's been a week since I've posted for as this title says - Not much goin' on.

On Wednesday we were invited to dinner at our friends Bill and Joan.  They also invited our friend Patty.  These are friends from the church we used to attend.  It is always fun getting together.

 During my work world I was a Human Resource Manager/Director/Professional (title depending on the company).  As such I belonged to the largest organization for HR - Society for Human Resource Management based in VA.    SHRM is composed of individual chapters throughout the world.    Our local chapter is HRA of Southern New Jersey.    Since I was in the area, on Thursday Len and I attended their annual Christmas party and auction to raise money for the SHRM Foundation.

We wanted to have the granddaughters over for the weekend.  Daughter Amy asked that instead of meeting us 1/2 way Friday evening if we would come to her house for the day.   She and Scott have been working on their dining room.   She was anxious to get her house in order so asked if Leonard would spend the day installing a door and do the trim and quarter-round around the floor.   Not a problem - he loves doing this stuff.

After the girls got home from school or daycare we took off for NJ stopping at a local diner for dinner.

As always Charlotte is awake before 5.  Abby sleeps until around 6.   We did almost nothing all day Saturday as it was very cold.   In the evening we took a ride looking at Christmas lights.

On Sunday we attended our church and gave a presentation on NOMADS.   Then it was lunch and Abby took a nap. Charlotte and I played games on the computer.  Len started teaching Charlotte how to play checkers.   We took them home meeting, Amy 1/2 way in the early afternoon.

That evening Len and I went to dinner.  A nice, quiet dinner.

Yesterday Len took the truck to get an oil change, etc.  

So, not much goin' on around here.  What about you???  Everyone really busy with Christmas preparations?

Well, if you don't count getting the black tank unclogged and the awning replaced, not much happening around here except the usual "busy-ies." Seems like I'm always running doing something for work or for us. I am doing something for me - started a knitting project, a hat for winter. Knitting is a relaxing thing for me. Sure enjoyed our time together when you were here! Love ya!

Sounds like a pretty nice way to spend a quiet, relaxing week.

Tell Len that if he wants to keep busy just stop in Dardenne Prairie on your way south, I can really keep him busy....Sam's more the electrical type and doesnt do well w/ wood/hammers, etc

Not much going on sounds perfect to me! Glad you are enjoying the grand kids while you are stationary.

Hey Phyllis - we've been very busy traveling as I know you have been reading the blog. Unfortunately I have been unable to post pics very well...between blogger and slow internet, it is about impossible!

Sounds like you are having a good but quiet time! I'm so glad we are not north in the cold!

Take care!

Sounds like you were pretty busy, but a nice, quiet dinner sounds like the perfect way to finish it off!
