Happy Weekend everyone...
Hope all is well with you wherever you may be..
I have returned home from Shonda's where I had a lovely time..
I have posted a few pics from around her home..
My camera has broken a piece off of it and we spent time trying to fix it with crazy glue but did not have much success..
I had to bring it home and hope dear hubby can do it... smile..
Perhaps my friend, Karen, who blogs
HERE AT MY COLONIAL HOME will notice some of her own wonderful hand work.. smile..
There are a few pics for you anyway..
It is greening up outside a lot the last few days and Spring has arrived.. It rained the whole time I was there ...
I left here very early and picked up a couple of Tim Horton's coffees when I was almost there.. Shonda was already and we took off for Calais, Maine..
We had such fun shopping and enjoyed a lovely Bistro type restaurant that I did not even know was there..
I was so blessed to walk into Mardens and find a new shipment of homespun fabrics in..
I use a lot of this in the things that I make for the shop..
I hope to make some homespun type buntings (my newest like in crafts), cushions, table runners, etc..
They also had the wonderful big containers for $8.00..
We each bought one..
Perhaps a terrarium....ummm,,, not sure yet..
I have been wanting to get a betta fish and put it in one of the bottles along with a bunch of herb cuttings..
We shall see.. smile..
Then we arrived home in time to make supper for the grandsons..
Shonda just cooked up some hamburger and mashed potatoes.. Heated up some frozen veggies.. corn, peas and carrots..
Then layered it in a casserole dish..
First layer.. a can of tomato soup mixed with the heated veggies..
Second Layer is the hamburger cooked up with garlic and onions..
Third layer is mashed potatoes mixed with butter and cream..
Butter the top with a bit of parsley and heat up for half an hour till nice and hot..
It was great to go to Bible Study with her and the boys..
It was wonderful teaching and so nice to see everyone..
We mostly attend their church once we go to the cottage as it is so much closer..
We enjoy attending with her family for a few months as we go with our boys and their families when we are home..
Yesterday morning we just sat around and had coffee and chatted..
We discussed the new plans for the shop and she gave me some of her opinions.. It was great to talk to someone who has the same type of ideas as I do and knows where I am coming from..
Having a work spot at the front of the shop made sense to her so I am hoping it works out.. smile..
She suggested that I start a Facebook page for the shop.
What do you think?
Then, of course, it was good to get home again and see hubby.. I know he missed me..smile.. I must say that I still find it hard to accept that Sammi is not at the door waiting for me, too..
I just read this to Terry and he said to tell you all that he is living the dog's life now..
I would say he has it made then, eh? grin..
Well, sweet friends, thank you so much for your visit and your lovely comments..
You ladies make my heart sing with your kind words..
Take care and we will chat again soon..
