Busy Week!

Just a quick post to say head on over to Cross Stitch and Cupcakes for a wonderful blogaversary giveaway! And to say that very little stitching is going on right now. Why you ask? Just keep reading!

I am working on boxed lunches for this weekends Garden Week Tour for our county. My ladies group at church is hosting the lunch for the tour, so I have been planning, shopping and will be preparing food for Saturday's tour. I am the food planner/organizer for the group. Luckily we only have reservations for 50 people but will make extras for those that walk in without a reservation. Lucky for me that there are several ladies willing to
help with the cooking, cleanup and handing out on Saturday.

Plus my family organized a 5K Walk/Run to raise funds for "Water for Life" on Saturday morning. Yes, that's on Saturday too! "Water for Life" was created by Sports Outreach Institute to help the people of Gulu, Uganda. After the war in Uganda, thousands of people were displaced in refugee camps living in very primative conditions. Sports Outreach works with the people to educate them on hygiene and health, teach them how to farm to provide food for themselves, provides micro loans for women to start businesses and digs water wells for villages to have clean drinking water. My family is helping out to raise money for the wells. We organized the 5K in memory of my youngest daughter who was killed an automobile accident last summer. While she was at college she participated in well building fundraisers for Gulu so we carry on with the work in her memory. We have over 100 people registered so far for the 5K and are expecting more to register on Saturday. It will be a good day and many people will be blessed with the gift of clean drinking water!

So, you can see it is very busy at my house!

I wish you all have a great rest of the week and weekend and happy stitching!
