It’s been a busy busy week! I was able to make some salads for some sweet people this week. I made a simple tossed salad, a taco salad, and a chicken mango salad with homemade raspberry vinaigrette. All three were enjoyed by all that tried them.
I was honored to serve in the kitchen at our church conference this week. The staff really protects the volunteers’ time allowing us to be in the services. They have streamlined the process in such a way that we miss little of the service at all. This is contrary to my natural instincts but something I’ve worked towards this week.
The services were absolutely awesome!!! I have come away thoroughly encouraged to pray more, read the Bible more, and worship the Lord more than ever before. I’m excited to see how my life will change in the months to come.
Unfortunately, it is hayfever time in Oklahoma! Ugh! Tiffany got hit with mega-stuffiness early this week; she even stayed home and rested on Tuesday because she hardly slept all night long. I have had headaches this week. I started the week with a sinus headache which finally left before the end of service Sunday night. My days have run together but I had another headache on one side of my head for longer than a day and then a short break followed by a headache for 32 hours. I then had relief for a day and have had to fight all day Thursday to keep it at bay. I’ll be glad to find out the cause of it, as I’m not sure if it is something I’m eating or if it is something in the air.
I’m looking forward to a restful weekend and will be attempting to keep off of my feet because they have been swollen for a couple of days now. I’m used to them swelling up a bit when I’m on them, working as a volunteer in kitchens but this has been odd because when I awoke Thursday morning they were still slightly swollen. Usually they go back to normal overnight. I gave up wearing my normal dress shoes on Monday. Thankfully, I have some nice flip-flops that didn’t bring my outfit down too much.
Mike has been such a sweetie this week. He rubbed my feet twice already. A few hours after I take a shower, my feet get really dry and with them being swollen, he has been a dear and rubbed them with lotion! I’m sooo blessed! He and Sean cleaned up the dinner on Tuesday night, since my feet were swollen and Tiffany wasn’t feeling good. I have some good guys!!! Sean and Tiff had youth night at church Wednesday and Thursday nights, so Mike suggested we eat out so I wouldn’t have to cook. Then last night he helped me make dinner and he cleaned up after dinner while I took a nap to keep that nasty headache at bay; like I said, I’m blessed!
Well, I’ll run for now, busy day ahead. Until next time, God bless,
