A Great Way To End The Week

Happy Saturday everyone!

It certainly has been a hectic and eventful week for me.

The usual busy routines of daily life . . .

The snow events . . . loss of power . . .

and getting ready to host a dinner party with the loss of one day of prep due to no power,

not to mention the panic of the loss of all of the “dinner food” when the power went out.

But all’s well, that ends well.

As not one, but two lovely blogs featured me this week.

Wow, I wish I had seen this recipe before my dinner party planning!


The beautiful mother and daughter team of The 2 Seasons included me in their fabulous

weekly roundup today. This round up includes everything from fabulous DIY, Events, Home Decor,

and recipes.

Kathy from A Delightsome Life did a surprise feature on me, my family, my home and some friends too!

Pop and Me

Kathy snagged this pic from a post I did a very long time ago.

I had forgotten about this picture of my granddaughter and her “Pop” making a birdhouse at a church

in the neighborhood. A birdhouse that she made and gifted to me for Mother’s Day.

A treasure to this day!

So hop on over to Kathy’s and see what other photos and surprises she had for me!

This has been a great ending to a somewhat crazy, eventful week; however, a good crazy, if that

makes sense!

Have a most wonderful weekend!
