May 4 Me Friday & Emotional Saturday

I over slapped Friday morning and did not get out of the house until after 8:00.  I did not even have a song on my mind, put as I was walking through the Metro station, an saxophonist was playing one of my earlier tunes “My Favorite Things” by Judy Andrew.  It was a slow Friday and I new I would not have the grandchildren today, so after work I picked up the car and decided I would have some crabs and shrimps for my dinner.


The crabs were small and the shrimps were big,  It was very good.  I think my son finished off the shrimp I only brought a half dozen crabs, which I ate myself.  What a peaceful Friday evening I had.

Saturday (today) started off at church with choir rehearsal, it was fun and moving.  My dad and I will be doing a duet next Sunday and we will be sing “My Soul Is Anchored In the Lord” by Douglas Miller.  If you do not know the song please listen and see the video below.  This is a very soul stirring video and song.

My Soul Has Been Anchored In The Lord

My nephew from Georgia called while I was in rehearsal and stop my the church.  His girlfriends son goes to Howard University and they drove up last night to pick him up and turn back around and go back to Georgia so it was a fast meeting.  It was nice to see him even if it was for 15 minutes.

After setting at home from running to the store for my mom, I took a little nap then watch t.v.  I was watching the Hallmark Channel movie “Duke” about a man and his love for a dog.  Well would you believe that I was sitting here crying, it just brought back memories of my dear cat Mercy who had to be but to sleep last November.


Oh well, I am up now and it is just 8:00, I think I will go down and do some sewing.  Have a nice weekend and I will post to you by Monday.  No BINGO for me this week, hopefully they will call something on my card.

The Slow Quilter


  1. Oh I'm so sorry about your kitty Mercy - they're really such a part of our family, it hurts so much when they cross over the Rainbow Bridge :( I'm sure my beautiful girl Sneaky met her and showed her around, though! We were able to be with her when she died, so she went to sleep surrounded by her family - that's how I would want to go too :)

  2. I'm so sorry to hear about your cat, Mercy.
    Better luck with BINGO this week.

  3. I was all excited to comment on those beautiful shrimp and crabs until I read about your poor kitty. I am so sorry. I know that is an awful thing to go through. I am really impressed with your May 4 Me progress. Keep going.
