Happy Weekend


Happy Weekend
 
 

We three are having a late lunch, Mexican, and chilling after that.

CC is preparing to return to her dorm in two weeks and is washing about twenty five loads of laundry.
She just finished summer school online on Wednesday and her making those deadlines made me craziER. College, for me, was a long, long, time ago and in a galaxy far, far away.

Garage sales in the morning for us!
What are your weekend plans?

grace surrounds us

  1. I can't believe school is starting up already. My daughter has transferred to the Univ. of Il. in Chicago and starts in a few weeks. Sniff, sniff. They are getting older {but we're not!!}

    I'm doing laundry like crazy, too. We are leaving for the lake tonight for a 2 weeks stay. I am SO looking forward to it!

    Hope you enjoy your nice lunch and good luck at the sales!!

    XO,

  3. Sounds like a busy weekend at your Casa! Hope the Mexican Food was good and the chillax-in afterwards was even nicer. I'm having cocktails with girlfriends tonight; tomorrow morning my Sunday School class is gathering at a shelter to make a couple of hundred sack lunches for the homeless and I'm overseeing the remodeling of a detached gameroom behind my house into a efficiency apartment for my 21 year old niece who will be attending law school in Houston this fall. Happy Weekend!!!

  8. No big plans at our house. I've been doing a little bit of shopping for my son's apartment at college. He leaves in 2 weeks too. I found some fun retro dishes at the thrift store yesterday and he liked them!
    Have a great weekend!

  10. "She" will be running errands - going to JoAnn's for more fabric because the 40 yards "she" has is not enough. And going to another store for more pillow forms because 30 isn't enough. And then probably some painting of furniture for the show.

    Romeo...will INSIDE napping with an occasion look-see out the window to see "her" sweat "her" chops off OUTSIDE. And of course snacks and plenty of water. It will be an exhausting weekend for Romeo.

    We both hope you have a great weekend. Sounds like you've started it out right with a little Mexican break :)

  14. Sounds like a delightful weekend for you Olive. I went to two estate sales today - empty-handed I came out. Went to cloth store with friend to get 47(!) yards of burlap for table overlays for this wedding that's happening soon around here. That will be our project next week. I'm glad she knows what we are doing because I am very confused about the measuring, etc. Ann

  21. Lovely to have you stop by, Olive! I hope your weekend went well and the garage sale was a success. I've scheduled one of my own for the end of the month...have lots to get rid of, although everything in my studio is staying...LOL!

    Enjoy your family time, and have a wonderful week...:)

  22. They didn't even have online courses when I went to school. Probably because they didn't have computers (well they were invented, just not everyone had one).
