    Grace, describe the taste of Vegemite, please?

    Good morning!

    We're just winding down the day!
    Oldest drove youngest to a church youth meeting.
    Feels good not to have to shuttle.
    It's a whole new can of worry worms, though, lol!

    Tomorrow dh and I drive about 2 hr to the Twentynine Palms Adventist Church, to help our friend w/music.
    He said to have 3-4 pieces ready.
    We have 6-7, just in case.
    Old hymns (Flee As A Bird, Nearer My God to Thee) and a few newer ones, with our little twists added to them.
    We did a little arrangement of Pachelbel's Canon, then led into As The Deer (panteth for the water, so my soul longeth after Thee . . )
    Dh does such a great job on his banjo!
    He's playing an 1889 nylon string classic banjo.

    I must be tired, I'm babbling . . .

    Y'all have a good day!!!

    Well there is about 2 hours left in my Friday but since I am here I will write a little also....I need to be doing something cause I want something sweet to eat and I don't want to. So I ate a spoon full of peanut butter and sat back down to type. My furkids have been out for thier last trip outside and ready for bed.

    I had a great restful day today. I worked 5-12 hour shifts in a row to get five days off but it was worth it. I am feeling so much better now and I still have 2 days left. I have done a lot of things for myself this week. I made some Halloween cards and some scrapbook pages on Wednesday, had a massage and then came home and had a teleconference for the union. Thursday I paid some bills and relaxed around the house and then took my puppy to an obedience class. I stopped at a Nothing but Noodles on the way home and I had some great crab ravoli and it was great.

    Today I worked on the books for the union and tried to straighten out my house a little bit. I got called from work to come in and work this weekend and I said "Absolutely not unless there is another riot."

    The next two days I have things to do for the VFW so it will make a really nice weekend. Lot of relaxation and then I will be ready to go back to work on Monday. I am going to take a little vacation and go to Reno the beginning of the month for a VFW function and have a little R& R for me....

    Will come back later and check the posts. Will keep everyone in my thoughts and prayers. Hope everyone has a great Saturday.

    Well, how to describe the taste, hmmmmm.........
    some say it tastes awful!!!! lol
    But, most of us Aussies raised on the stuff LOVE it!!! lol
    The best I can offer is it tastes savoury, a bit salty maybe.

    So, I read & read & read till I got tired of reading---a Rita May Brown & Sweety Pie Brown book, Good book, but I was getting a bit tired of it all ready.

    So you all guessed it----back to allnurses!!

    I really think I would enjoy Vegemite--I love SAVORY!! Plus, I love trying new things!
    I'm enjoying a giant vodka and tonic right now, & that is relaxing me--more then it should be.

    Morning chats, zoe, bethin, suzy!

    , I'll pass on the vegemite

    Dianah I love those old hymns

    Mary I've read a bunch of Rita Mae Brown books too (like the earlier ones)

    Trying to decided whether I should head off to the inaccurately-named Chicago Botanic Gardens. They're not in Chicago, they're more than 30 minutes north of the city. From where I live on the west side they're 30 miles away (east into the city then north). It's a long drive but this may be the last time before Thanksgiving I'll have time to go, before all the leaves drop.

    I'll probably go...the last two days have primarily been about studying, and I'm getting both bored and a bit lonely. I just got some new film for my camera, so I can put it to good use.
