The perfect treat!

 When I got home today I was given this by John.


Looks like I don't need anything else - but maybe a spoon!

I bet you wish you were here!

~~This is what summer is all about~~

PJ & Lani

God was watching over my best friend's family!

Diane's daughter's house burned down on July 15.  

We all thank God that no one was home at the time - they were all camping!

Ami-Jo, Jeff, P.J. & Lani lost their home to a catastrophic fire. 

Their home was a total loss.  

I was blessed with the ability to replace just 2 small items for Diane's precious grandchildren PJ & Lani.  

Please keep Ami-Jo, Jeff, PJ & Lani in your thoughts and prayers.

We watched my favorite movie - AGAIN!!

 Would you believe that we watched my favorite movie again...
Poor John - I bet he has had to watch that movie one thousand times!
So what do you think that movie is....

Of course, it is 


I just love the movie.

Well, I know it is late and I best get to bed.  Or should I just think about that tomorrow for tomorrow is another day...

Can't believe it is already Sunday

My long weekend was great, but has come to an end much to quickly.

Yesterday, John and I got out of the house for almost all of the day.  We got some shopping in as well as a trip to the Library (which has always been one of my favorite places).  We even went out to eat - yum!  A great day! 

Today we need to get the house cleaned and the clothes washed for the week.  I have one dress to hem - the hem came out in the wash - and it is my favorite dress for work. 

So once again, time for my second cup of coffee and time to start the day!

Hope you had as wonderful a weekend as we did!

My Mini Vacation - we had a BLAST!

 Diane and I had a Great time in Bangor!

This is a picture of Diane and I on our way home!

We had so much fun!  

I have never gambled before and did not have beginners luck, but I did have a blast!  It was great just getting away with Diane.  I think we need to plan a getaway each summer while she is in Maine.

Now for a few more pictures...

 This is Laney - Diane's granddaughter.  She didn't go with us, but is so CUTE I thought I would just add her picture.

Diane has many more pictures- I will post more when I get them from her!

Now time to get busy and get this house cleaned up!  

Have a wonderful weekend!

Another GREAT Day!

John and I went to the lake with the dogs today.  It is our first time having them in the water.  Well, Daisy loves the water - Sassy - not so much.  Sassy went in but preferred to sit on the sidelines.  I hope you enjoy the pictures!

 Now to finish mowing!

I hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as we did!
