Today's Blessings

Andy rose and left for work as if it was a regular work day (Praise God from Whom all blessings flow!) so I hopped up to make his lunch and kiss him goodbye.

I had a delightful morning "catch up" conversation with my sweet mother-in-law who is currently in Huntsville holding my newborn niece. (jealous.)

My girls slept until 10ish.

Around 11 we scooted out the door for a girly wedding shower for the lovely Miss Mallie Settle and ate yummy sausage balls and tiny quiches and had some delightful fellowship with lots of friends.

When we left we spontaneously decided to take a little drive over to Pendleton.  We found a little rummage store and ventured in.

I came home with my first set of vintage sheets (3 bucks!) for future quilting projects, a collection of vintage wooden spools for mere pennies and a pair of $1 vintage reading glasses that just so happened to be just my size. 

I am sure that the little store's owner is still scratching his head wondering what he was thinking giving me that little wooden stool for such a steal.  I left dreaming up ideas for how to cover the seat.  ahhhhhh.

We raced back to Anderson to get Caroline to church for a Saturday afternoon practice in preparation for a little DOZ dance they are doing for Worship tomorrow.

Rebecca and I had a little bite to eat together and a sweet chat.  She asked,

     "Momma, when you were little, what kind of house did you want to live in?"

I thought about it and answered,

     "I wanted a little old charming house, to marry someone just like your daddy... and I wanted a girl!... one who I could take shopping and share dreams over lunch."

The sun is beaming outside, but the temp is as it should be this time of year.
We are listening to old Susan Ashton tunes.

My girls are  currently cleaning out their rooms for yard sale junk and singing at the top of their lungs.... I suppose I should get off this computer and go start my own stash!
