Hi there!

How was your weekend? It was pretty exciting around our parts and elsewhere.

My fiery SIL Red had a scare that sent all of us to our knees and into action. On the plus side, I got to spend some time with my sweet nieces which included going to Church and getting to meet a friend I hadn't ever met before. Andrea and her husband were in town visiting family, raising funds and bringing awareness to the FOCUS ministry.

Dawn's husband planned the most wonderful surprise to celebrate her 40th birthday. He says that he is so lucky to have her in his life and I think we are lucky that he isn't a selfish man! Thanks for sharing your family with us, Mr. Sun-and-Candlelight! What a beautiful gift it is to the blogosphere.

Michelle apparently thinks that they have no sinks, or dishes, or laundry baskets, or peanut butter in Australia. Yeah. I can't think of anything a spirited little lass like Mary could get into on an island surrounded by sand and water. Maybe she thinks it would be easier to just dunk her in the ocean for a rinse off instead of her preferred splashing in the potty?

And Jennifer created a pattern for the perfect hat. And knowing how cute her little guy is, I can just imagine how cute he looks in that gorgeous hat! Now, If I could just learn to translate from knit to crochet. I'm not bilingual.

And now I am off to convince myself for the twelve thousandth time today that it really is Tuesday and not Friday like my brain wants to believe. Don't you hate it when that happens?


  1. Well I have you to thank for the crocheted edge - the making of which had me in a very *foul* mood while I pondered driving to your house begging you, tearfully to finish it for me.
    I'm so disappointed I missed Andrea again!

  2. Ron and I met Andrea and Charlie last year - they are really passionate people with a love for the Lord! And the missionary work they do through FOCUS, how I wished I had someone to steer me in the right direction when I was in college!


Thank you for sharing your thoughts and yourself!
