Blah....the weather and me

Yes the weather has been blah. It rained and stormed last night. It was so dark outside when Ellen went to school this morning. I felt blah too. Everything bothered me. Hate feeling like that!

Now, as I was heading to make another good cup of coffee (hoping it would chase away the blahs)and to get a big bunch of red seedless grapes to snack on, the sun is peeping through the clouds! For me, that's huge.  Sunny days are good, very good! Some people are energized by rainy days. I am not.


We attended a special banquet Wednesday evening, the UDS Football/Cheering end of season celebration. As always, the room is so energized with these jubilant and special participants. It's always so fun!

Excited Ellen!

Cheerleaders and their helpers

More cheerleaders.
We really enjoyed the food. It was all donated...
Pizza, tacos, beef BBQ, hot dogs, veggies and dip, fresh friut,
Rita's Italian Ice, Antie Anne's soft pretzles, Cinnabons.
Ellen gets her award from the helpers,
Sarah and Molly
Coach Randy congratulates Jennifer for a job well done.
Jennifer was the UDS coordinator for
Challenger Football and Cheering this year.

Another successful season comes to a close. Well done, kids! Thanks to Faulkner Chevrolet and Cargill Chocolate for being major sponsors.


Two little sweeties came while I was writing this. Aidan is waiting for me to finish because we have a cake to bake. Zoe is in need of a diaper change..oh, boy.

Have a great week-end!

Yep, it's blaaaahhhhh up here too. I've been working here at the office all day all by myself, and I'm going stir crazy. I don't usually work Fridays, but I have so much catching up to do after being away.

That banquet looks like so much fun. Yea for stuff like that for your special girl.

One reason I dislike winter is the lack of light! Sun makes me much more cheerful.
Sweet photos of Ellen and the others. So happy she had this opportunity.
Have a blessed weekend.

Rain does that to me too, Not energized at all. Way to go Ellen! Avery's last game to cheer for is tomorrow. It takes a lot of work to teach those girls! Enjoy your weekend dear friend. Hugs

Hi Doris, just doing some catching up on blog posts reading this a.m. Before heading off to NJ for week long stay at my mom's. No rain here, just daytime temps in the 70s and crisps notes, my favorite time of year as it is with so many. Enjoyed the random post and congrats to Eileen on the successful cheer leading season.
