And this is what makes me happy…

It was a really good weekend; nothing of huge import happened beyond the long-awaited Homecoming Dance, but it was still a really good weekend. Good speaker meeting on Friday; the man having a really good story to share.  We cleaned ferociously on Saturday morning, and then my friend Jacquie and I helped Hannah get ready for the dance…and later that night I even had time to delve into my new book.  Sunday was much the same, little household chores and more heavy cleaning and then?  For me, a nap, a wonderful nap with both dogs curled up next to me to keep me warm.  We cooked, too, cookies for my part and the yummy bread on Steve’s part, plus steak and potatos.  Later, two long phone conversations and a visit from Steve’s parents…and while I didn’t get to use my new reel yet, well, next weekend, perhaps.  I feel good today, rested and happy, and though I would share with you a few of the things that do make me happy, on a consistent basis.  Plus, of course, pictures of Hannah.  Enjoy!

    • @Tara R., It is amazing how much stress we were under; it was at the time simply something that we HAD to get through, and I think that all in all we coped okay, but I will be the very first to admit that ALL of us just feel SO much lighter now!

    • @Mrs. Ski, She had a really great time; though this morning she said, “My FEET still hurt!” And she had to wash her hair twice AND do a vinegar rinse to get all the hairspray and hair glue out of it.

    • @SJ, I think there are few things in life better than time to read.

      I think she did pretty good for not deciding she was going until a week before the dance, don’t you?

  1. That flan did look delish!! And Hannah is so pretty!! Love the purple! In fact all of the pictures are great!! Glad you got to enjoy your book

    • @Dreamybee, Thank you; and yes, she had a GREAT time!

      We DID get a basset; the picture isn’t that clear because she never stays still when she is awake-so it fits her personality perfectly. My boss was getting rid of her because she needed a LOT more time/attention than they could give her, so since we have a houseful of kids and cats and another dog, it was a perfect fit. She is so much fun!

  2. What great photos. Your daughter looks lovely and I hope she had a good time. And that little basset is a cutie pie. They are great snugglers too when it comes to naps as it sounds like you are already found out. Glad to hear you had a nice weekend.

    • @Mr. Shife, I very sternly told her that if she was going to stay in our family, she had to learn that when it is naptime, that really means naptime; she is happy to oblige, and man, is she sweet! Of course, so far that is the only time she is still…..but she is so snuggly!
