Donate to PTO yard sale

Hi!

We’re going from summer to winter in one week, aren’t we? Monday’s and Tuesday’s weather was so nice, a little windy, but nice; now the cold is back. Lots of folks did manage to get their gardens plowed before the rain on Sunday. Reuben Rose even got his potatoes in the ground, I hear.

Waco Elementary PTO will be conducting a yard-sale donation collection Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the old Fire Station Building on Fike Road (behind the school). If you have items that you don’t need anymore, just bring them down where volunteers will sort them and get them ready for sale. You’ll be cleaning out your “stuff” and helping our school and that’s a win-win situation! The exact date for the yard sale has not been determined, but we’ll let you know when (probably in April).

Speaking of school, did you catch our fourth-graders on Channel 18’s Weather 101 segment with Bill Meck last week? Yep, they were on TV! Everyone was so excited (and didn’t they all look so pretty and smart)?

Restoration work is still going on out our way as a result of last month’s ice storm. Road crews, tree trimmers and cable workers can still be seen out and about working on lines, collecting brush, etc. There’s still plenty reminders of the storm-that-was!

Eric Brandenburg was treated to a birthday dinner last Thursday at Michael’s to honor his 35th birthday. Everyone enjoyed their night out and the food was delicious! Lots of Wacoans visit Ravenna we noticed; must be the butter-roll!

Happy birthday wishes go out to Don (and Donnie) Hendrickson this weekend, March 13 and 14, I believe. Jan, we’re thinking of you at this time, and having you in our prayers.

That’s about it for this week. Have a great one! Oh no, I just remembered that tomorrow is Friday the 13th! Stay safe and catch up on that hour of sleep we lost last weekend when daylight-saving time premiered!

  • ‘Thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff comfort me’

    The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
    (Psalm 23:1-6)

  • Katie-Rollins.jpg Paint Lick community Christmas tree lighting is Friday, Nov. 30

    Hello readers, it is a chilly, yet cloudy Monday morning, this Nov. 19. As I look out into the street here above the Friends of Paint Lick building, I see the most incredible little tree that sits alone, just waiting to be lighted for the Paint Lick community Christmas celebration. The small spruce was planted by two gardeners from Baldwin Farms, friends of Hal and Yvonne Davis.

  • Waco Pentecostal Tabernacle fundraiser Saturday Hi!

    Here we are in fall again!

    How do so many leaves fall off a tree and get scattered in so many different directions in one day?

    How many more leaves are still on the tree that will turn and fall and be scattered in the days to come?

    It almost makes one want to wait until all the leaves are off the tree before picking up a rake or broom. That might be better than raking and sweeping each day for many, many days to come.

  • Paula Jones Roadside clean-up set for Saturday How is everyone’s week going? I hope that everyone is having a great one. We have once again had a little mixture of weather, cool, rain, warm and sunshine. One can never tell what the March weather will be. Have you noticed the buttercups blooming? I also saw some bushes and trees blooming. I even saw a redbud tree blooming! There is such beauty in spring as it comes to life.

  • Take care of your community: Don’t litter! Hello readers. The late evening sun is shining through an upstairs window from where I’m sitting and I notice the brilliance of an outer ring that seems to flow toward the creek as it (sun) begins the journey into the night. I do love to just look and enjoy all we have on this Earth to appreciate. It’s always the little things that seem to make up the circle of life. Like the bright yellow daffodils blooming in Mrs. Callahan’s yard and the many buttercups alongside the road — the little things.
