WEEKEND FUN ~ ~ ~
This was our glass collection from that weekend ~ pretty good haul, wasn't it? See all the lucky stones in the middle? I just got some bracelet blanks and I'm going to try my hand at jewelry making ~ just like so many others are doing these days! Almost every craft or art show you go to, is overrun with jewelry ~ mine will be just for fun! If it works out, I'll show you some pictures!!!
Just in case, someone in the area of Port Clinton is looking for a fine leather chair and ottoman ~ here it is!! It's a long story (all of mine are) , but we replaced the upstairs sofa and loveseat ~ the chair didn't match the new set (of course) so we HAD to buy the chair that goes with them! At any rate, this one is in the lower level ~ hardly ever has anyone sat on it ~ and we're selling it and putting the upstairs mis-matchy chair in it's place. Email me ~ email@example.com ~ IT'S JUST LIKE NEW!!!!
Last weekend, we stayed home to gather with Sonny's family in honor of his brother, Paul. They had a bonfire and pot-luck at their farm ~ like they would do on so many occasions ~ and friends and family were together to comfort his wife and kids ~ and each other. It was sad but also Paul would have loved it ~ he was with us in spirit!
We are off for a four-day weekend ~ unheard of for us! Tad will be staying with his sitter for part of the weekend, while we have overnight guests. Yesterday, I took him out to lunch and shopping for cd's and dvd's ~ his favorite thing to do ~ because he hadn't been out in so long and I thought he needed a change of pace. On the way home, I asked him "did you have a good day?" He said " yes ~ it's 'kiss up' Wednesday"! I said 'what does that mean?' He says, in all his wisdom " Thursday, you go to the lake ~ Wednesday, I go shopping ~ that's 'Kiss Up' Wednesday"!!!!!!!!!! I laughed all the way home!!!!!!!!! He may be developmentally challenged but he's pretty darn smart and pretty darn funny!!!!!!!!
I hope somebody's 'kissing up' to you today!!!!!! Have a good weekend ~
