The Week in Review

 Taught Sam how to play chess...

...with help from this wonderful learning set, a gift from Aunt Jenny many years ago.

 Received this amazing care package in the mail, a gift from my sister, Tina. Just look at that lovely hand knit head warmer! She's so talented!

Two cards from Mom arrived on the same day! Don't you love how she embossed and colored those birds? Mom is an excellent card maker!

 An honest assessment of our weekend. Thank you, Sam!

A pile of new magazines...a big splurge.

 More wonderful cards in the mail.

 When a little girl comes to your door selling her homemade cards... better buy one!

Reminds me of another little girl who tried to sell her handmade cards a LONG time ago.

Trying to decide on my next needle art project.

Feeling especially thankful to the Lord for health and healing, family and friends, and the warm glow of this season.

Blessings on your weekend, friends!


  1. A wonderful post! I love his assessment of your weekend!

  3. What a heart warming post! Blessings to you and your family!
    Oh, you are right, those Chickadees are stunning! They are my favorite bird (shhhh, don't let Bijou know)

    1. I love chickadees, too, Darlene! But speaking of Bijou, I need to talk to you about a parakeet that's visiting my bird feeder daily.
