As I mentioned in yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, after watching on television, the ball drop in Times' Square, New York City, I placed a roast with seasonings, etc., into my slow cooker and went to bed.
When I awoke early in the morning, the roast smelled great! Because it was done, I removed it from the slow cooker, wrapping it in foil to keep it until, later. By the time I left to go worship, the gravy was wonderfully made, too!
While Sunday morning was the first Sonday of the month, we did not celebrate communion at church. This coming Sonday, I am sure we will. Even so, it was nice to worship my Lord!
After church, I went to the rehab centre where my co-worker/friend C is still a patient at. We had a nice, but short visit. Just long enough to wish him and some of his cronies a very Happy New Year!
Believe it or not, I made my way to the cemetary, where I visited Gordon's grave.
You might be wondering why I would say believe it or not. Well, if you were aware I was having company for dinner about 4:00 p.m. to celebrate the new year, you'd probably laugh at me making all those side trips!
On my way home, I realized that even though I don't drink milk and don't regularly have it in my fridge, I needed it, this day. After all, my granddaughter drinks it, and some of my other grandchildren might want some, even if I did make sure I had soda pop on hand for them and their parents.
Yup! For the first time in many, many, many, years, I was having both my daughters (at the same time!) and their families, as guests for dinner!
After making all those stops, I finally arrived home at my apartment building. Unloading the van, I took all the items up to the party room.
Be still my heart! It was supposed to be open and unlocked for me! But, it wasn't. Unlocked, I mean.
My first thought was GREAT!!! Now, what was I to do? My second thought was there is no way I can seat all my family members in my apartment!
Quickly, I realized that a board member lives nearby. Off I went, knocking on their door. I was told they would go to the office, get the key and unlock the room for me.
Yes, the room had been used the evening before for a New Year's Eve party, but I had booked the use of the room for the Sunday afternoon, so I could have all my family join me for dinner. Whoever finished cleaning up after the party, must have locked it, without thinking.
Okay; off I went to go park my van in my normal parking space. Then, I went upstairs, hung up my coat and carried some items down to the party room.
Thank You, Lord! The door was unlocked and the items I had left outside the door, were placed inside, for me! GREAT!!!
Once I unloaded all the items I carried into the room, I placed those that needed to be refrigerated, into the fridge. Then, back upstairs I went!
Wait until you hear what I needed to do! Please hang in there; see you, tomorrow.
Until next time...
