TGIM!!! & marilyn & calendar ...

Yikes! It's Monday! That's good because everyone is off to work or school except for me & Izzy so it's nice and quiet in the house! BUT, that means lots of catch up from a busy weekend too! I didn't get to do much on the computer this weekend, I didn't even do weekend reflection/review.

Guess what I got yesterday??? A NAP! Seriously, a glorious, long nap! IT was the highlight of my weekend. I had a little trouble fully waking up for evening services, but it was ministries night which is equal to kind of a women's meeting in the kitchen area... so I took my coke w/sonic ice (rude huh?) and woke up there. I visited with some really sweet ladies I hadn't had the opportunity to meet yet. A widow named Charlotte who was really really nice and Erica who has a cute little baby named Faith. I have actually visited with Erica before, she is extremely friendly.

As promised, here is a picture of the almost completed Marilyn...
She had a great time and I think the Silver Server banquet was a success.










Kim over at Mom's Musings had the fun idea of posting her calendar yesterday so Kim, here's my calendar! I bought this calendar holder at a craft show many years ago and each year enjoy looking for a perfect calendar to put in it... I love calendars too!





My menu... another yikes. I haven't really made a menu or shopped for groceries... I did cook this weekend. (5 bonus pts.) I'll be back later with a menu!

Happy Monday!! I love afternoon naps. Thank goodness I get one now and then with my son who will only take one if we lay down with him. It is rare but I love those snuggly days

Your Amanda is beautiful. (I saw a MM & Audrey Hepburn black & white pics at Target TODAY and thought of her!) Anyway, was this at your new church? And she was involved? So is she liking it there now?

Dena said...

Wow! Amanda looks JUST like Marilyn (that's gonna be trouble!) I hope she had a great time and kudos on the NAP - they are completely underrated as far as I am concerned! We should totally have Siestas!

Wow, I looked at Amanda and really did think Marilyn! Glad to hear you had a nap, you come across as someone who has awesome energy and a great capacity for others. I feel like someone's Great Grandma at the mo :-)

Don't even ask me about my week, or weekend or the way this one's starting out. Sighhhhhhhhh.

We were so busy this past weekend, too, that I so understand not being able to get on the computer!
