Writing in the Blog

Man! I really stink at this keeping my blog up! I'm in a creative slump right now, too. I have 2 swaps I need to get ready for so I need to get out of the slump.

Spring semester is done at Columbia College. WOOHOO! It was a rough semester - I took 3 classes. Between the 3 classes, working at BCBSSC, directing 2 Handbell Choirs at Living Springs Lutheran Church, Audrey's soccer games and Evan's baseball games. I was exhausted by the end of the semester.

I met my sisters Pam Deselem and Louella McElhaney, cousins Jo Donaldson and Dee Swager, my mom (Penny Harmer) and my Aunt June Perkins in Virginia a couple of weeks ago. It was a great time. We decided we needed to have an annual event of getting together. Did you know Blacksburg, Viriginia has a 'Fork and Cork Festival'? All the local vineyards were there - and each had around 6 wines to test. What a great time!! Wine and family - not whine and family like when my kids are involved.

We said good-bye to a special lady today, Alma Brantley. She died last Wednesday. It was a great - although long - service. It wouldn't have seemed so long if it wasn't so dang hot in the church. But she deserved a great send off and I think it was fitting.

I'll try to be better at updating my blog. Have a great week!
