Good Monday morning to everyone…..
How was your weekend?
The past few days have been wonderful. Different. But wonderful.
Let’s start with some free stuff, shall we?
My friends Jules and Tristen (over at the BrightSide project, which is BRILLIANT) have a free giveaway, today. Go to THIS link, and get a free bottle of Coquette perfume. All you have to pay is shipping! PERFECT, right?!? DO it. Then we can all walk around smelling the same and being fabulous.
I had tea with Mary and she made brunch for us (pictures of her creations are below). It’s becoming quite the weekly tradition for us. A liesurely brunch is just a good thing, you know? Chatting, laughing and the like. And she made homemade lemon curd. It was delicious. In lieu of tea this week, we are going to “bulk cook” and make two meals together, to freeze for dinners. I’ll let you know how it goes!
I gave a sewing lesson this week and realized how much I missed teaching .Afterall, I did go to school for it. I was reminded how fun it is to share knowledge and watch someone learn in front of you.
My friend Noelle and her daugher Mackenzie came over on Friday and we spent some time with “Vivian” the sewing machine. Mackenzie took to sewing very quickly and she completed an entire skirt in her first lesson!! Impressive, to my way of thinking. I enjoyed the evening so much and look forward to teaching someone else soon!
Way to go Mackenzie! I smell PROJECT RUNWAY in your future!
Sean and I took Miss K to Chick-Fil-A for COW APPRECIATION DAY on Friday. If you dressed like a cow, you ate free! How could we pass it up? We met the Jacobs and had a grand time.
Thanks to everyone who has responded to my plea for help with the STAYCATION. I have received emails, calls and props already (G-I think Sean might just want to steal your treats you are loaning us). Not to mention ideas and people willing to help us out with several adventures. It’s shaping up to be a memorable week. With lots of special appearances by friends! There will be FULL photo documentation for each destination–stay tuned!
I find that I’m always thinking about friendship and what makes it, maintains it and keeps it going.
I love this verse and quote:
“I count myselt in nothing else so happy
As in a soul rememb’ring my good friends.”
– William Shakespeare
As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27: 17
The older I get, the more I realize how I need my true friends and how much of a gift they truly are. Their consistency in my life is of much value.
Have a wonderful Monday…..I’m off to get a Diet Coke! (surprise, surprise…)….
***AND…come back tomorrow for a CHALLENGE***
