Happy weekend, everyone! It is a beautiful sunny day here in Ohio. After church I stopped at the store, then came home and made dinner - roasted chicken, baked beans, pasta and potato salad.
I got some summer things out of the shed to put on the patio - chimes, garden figurines, things like that. I would do some more yard work and mulching, but I do my best to honor the Lord`s day and not work, so I will get that done later in the week.
By the way, here is a picture of my faux flower arrangement that I said I was making a few entries back:
It`s rather large and simple. I`m happy with the way it turned out, though.
Last night I had breakfast for dinner. I met an old friend at iHop and we chatted forever. Her and I met back in grade school .... 3rd or 4th grade. Wow! I saw her for the first time in years about 2 years ago. Then the other day I received an email from her asking if Id like to get together again. I`m glad I did, as I really enjoyed it!
I finished reading vinegar Hill by Manette Ansay. She`s a very good writer although the book itself was somewhat dysfunctional and disturbing. Now I am reading a new book by one of my favorite authors, Maeve Binchy. The book is called Whitehorn Woods. I love her! All of her books are good. I signed up for this thing at the library where I list all my favorite authors - then when they come out with a new book, one is automatically reserved for me. How cool is that?!
This is a picture I took of Mandy that turned out weird. I am standing outside looking in through the door at her, which is why you see reflections of the patio table and chairs. Mandy looks almost surreal, like a ghost dog.
Cute as a button, that wittle face. Muah. Muah.
Did you hear about these peaceful protests that were going on in cities across America this past weekend where people camp out in parks to protest about people takenout of their homes and forced to live in camps in Africa? My daughter participated in this in Pittsburgh this weekend. They slept in a tent that they made out of cardboard and tarps. She said it was cold and muddy from Saturdays rain, but they had a good time.
Anyhow, I`m off to read journals
Love & God bless,
