Today will definitely be a test of my multi tasking abilities. After chores and breakfast the race began !!
I put the first load of laundry in to wash while I started baking my cake layers. Between 5 loads of laundry I managed to finish baking 46 cake layers and get 5 pound cakes in the ovens.
I had worked right through lunch time so after the pound cakes went into the ovens for an hour I ate some lunch and then started month end house cleaning projects as well as regular cleaning. This causes several extra loads of laundry and 2 of them will wait until tomorrow so I can hang them on the clothes line.
By 3:30 I had everything done and was getting ready to sit outside for a little while when daughter came in and reminded me I needed to go to the bank with her either today or in the morning. So I did my sitting in her car on the way to the bank. Got things taken care of there but while we were there she got a call from her banker saying the closing for her house may not happen tomorrow because of an address discrepancy on the sellers realty description which was already supposed to have been addressed but wasn't.
As we came home the realtor called and said they thought they had it solved so we'll see tomorrow I guess.
I did the evening chores and got g-son and headed for Bible School.
Daughters and my class grew again tonight as we now have 11.
And the behavior level went down several levels tonight,probably because each new addition has been male and now they are all competing for the silliness award !

G-son felt better tonight and looked like he had a good time.

The dancing part is still his favorite and there's no stopping him when the music starts.

That's his little behind as he demonstrates his break dancing routine.

And here is yours truly racing in the penquin walk competition ,yeah, our team won !!!!!

On a very sad note tonight God called home a very special angel yesterday.
This man John Crowe was a true soldier for the Lord,he was one of the hardest workers on the mission trips and anything else that went on in the church.
John lost his life in a construction accident in downtown Asheville yesterday. Doing what he was always doing ,working hard.
He leaves behind a true soul mate ,his wife Susan.
Please keep her in your prayers as she seeks the Lord' s comfort in her loss. I'm sure John is up in Heaven looking for a hammer to fix something right now.

I ice 6 caramel cakes tonight and am coughing my way to a hot bath and bed tonight to hopefully get this tickle out of my throat and get another good night's sleep.
It is still very hot and dry but the temperature at almost midnight is 72 which is cooler than it has been.
May God bless our VBS and glow in the glory of it as well as blessing Susan in her loss.
Good Night and God Bless.

Hi Marilyn, I've caught up on your blog posts... Sounds like you are staying VERY busy... Hope your daughter gets that house SOON.

Sorry about the death of John Crowe.. What a shame. I will keep his family and friends in my prayers.

It is hard to lose someone...especially someone so special.

The family is in my thoughts and prayers.
