The brunch yesterday morning was so much fun! It was a time for the women from my church and few of our friends to be together and fellowship. The food was Uh-mazin (As my daughter would say.) The conversations were sweet. We absolutely need to do this on a more regular basis.
The most fun part came at the very end when we had to team together to push a minivan that was stuck in the mud. That was a memory maker for sure! I laugh every time I think about it. My husband didn’t laugh when he saw the yard, but it’ll grow back. Right?
Yesterday I also went and got my hair done. I’d take a picture, but I have bed head right now. I got there a little early, so I ran into Marshall’s. I was looking for a napkin holder for my table and I found a nice one. As I was leaving, I found some peacock stuff. I have a peacock bedspread and I have been wanting to work that motif into my room a little more. That is besides the point though, because this was kitchen stuff. However, my bedroom is right beside my kitchen, so I decided to expand the peacock kingdom. I needed something new for my buffet and it was perfect. I did not buy the dishes, but rather a few accent pieces. I came home and set it all up. Joshua was impressed. I told him that they had dishes that I didn’t buy, because we don’t need dishes. To this he replied, “I think we might need some.” We really don’t. I put away all of my breakable dishes a while back and invested in a ton of white corelle. Maybe he is bored with the white. Or, maybe he just likes to spoil me. He’s a sweet and generous man.
This morning we will be going to church. Afterwords my husband will take the two older kids to their “Young adult” meeting, and then he will take my son to orchestra. Meanwhile, my new friend Jeni is coming home with me for lunch and garden planning. We are going to have a big garden here on my farm. We have the space and she has the skill. It should be a lot of fun, and a very productive way to build a friendship.
After that, I am making Pioneer Woman’s baked ziti for our home fellowship tonight.We will stop in at home fellowship for a few minutes, and then we will be off to my son’s concert. Whew! Busy, busy, busy!
Well, that was a whole lot of rambling. Now it’s time to wake some kids up so that some Latin homework can be completed before church. As my friend Elizabeth always says, Onward and upward! Have a great day.
