Sunset and Sleepytime

I got home around sunset time, and the clouds were beautiful! I of course took a picture:

I went to bed early last night. I’m not getting as much rest as I used to. I like being busy, but it’s really cutting into my stare-at-my-phone time. Hehe…

Aloha and Goodbye

Yesterday was my pastor’s last Sunday before he heads to Nebraska for his new Call. It was an aloha theme. Everybody wore Hawaiian print clothes. It was so colorful. It reminded me of church in Maui.

At events like this, Charlene often writes lyrics for well-known tunes and we sing them. Yesterday’s tune was “Aloha ‘Oe”

After the service, we had a luncheon. I should have taken a picture of the crowd, but I was distracted by the lively conversation at my table. I did take a picture of the cupcake table:

Scattered Saturday

I have a bunch of things I want to do in the house, but I keep jumping from one thing to the next, and not finishing anything. Ugh. On top of that, I like to be lazy on Saturdays, so if I sit down, work is over for a little while.

Yesterday I was going to paint, but the walls needed smoothing. Then there was some more patching to do, but I wanted to use some heavier spackle than what had been using, so it was off to the store.

At the store, I remembered I wanted an extension cord so I could plug my phone in while I sat on the couch. I worked on that for a little while when I got home.

When I looked at the clock, it was somehow afternoon, so I took a nap.

Suddenly it was night. What did I do with the day? Sheesh!

Today is a grading day, so I won’t be getting much house work done. Dang. I guess there’s next weekend…

Family Fun

Last night was a “Family Fun Night” at school. I don’t know what other fun nights will entail, but this one was a bingo night.

The eighth graders sold food to make money for a trip to D.C. they (we) will be taking in March, but the playing of bingo itself was free. Prizes were gift cards procured by the PTL.

We played several rounds. It was noisy and chaotic and fun. I was at a table with a woman from Russia and a boy from Spain. Both of them knew what bingo was, but needed a little explanation now and again. It was interesting watching them play. The boy won, which was really fun to watch.

I also won. Woo hoo!

Diagram Difficulties

My religion class lesson yesterday was partially about Venn diagrams because this is how the teacher book filled one out:

It was all wrong. The name of the things you’re comparing are supposed to be at the top. The differences should be in the side sections of the circles. And they didn’t even have anything in the middle part at all.

It bothered me more than it should have.
