Good Friday Evening! - 6/17/11

Good Evening, Dear Friends!

It's been a busy week! At the time of my last post I was awaiting our youngest daughter, Amanda, and her friend, Heather. They were going to visit Prairie State Park, kick around town a bit, then, eventually, end up here for the night...which they did!

We had a great visit and, over supper, I finally got to watch TANGLED! Now...that may not sound like a big deal, but it really is. My daughter...even though she's 25-years-old...loves any Disney princess movie. She and her husband saw TANGLED at the theater, and the night that they saw it she called me and made me promise not to watch it until we could watch it together. That wasn't a problem at all...until one of my 5-year-old granddaughters got it and wanted me to watch it with her. I can't tell you happy she was to find out that I had finally watched it with Aunt Amanda and am now free to watch it with her! LOL!

After watching TANGLED Amanda and Heather and I had an impromptu tea party. Here's a couple of pictures of us enjoying each other's company...

Over the course of the visit the girls and I enjoyed three different kinds of tea...rhubarb cream, blueberry vanilla cream, and Angel's Dream. I made a blueberry/cream cheese coffeecake for dessert. Yum!

The girls spent the night here and left before lunch the next morning. I don't know about them, but I had a lot of fun! It's been a long time since I've got to have 'girl time' with one of my daughters!

The rest of the day Thursday was spent doing school and preparing for our trip to Springfield today and Tony's surgery...which, by the way...went very well! The surgeon was sure that there would be tendon damage, but even she was surprised to find that there wasn't any! The BB was lodged under both tendons and was imbedded in the bone, but there was no damage to the tendons or the bone! The Lord's presence was evident on every front and His peace was upon us today. Please join us in praising the Lord for His awesome provision, His tender mercy, and His never-ending love and care!

Well, Ladies, I am going to close for now. We have another baby shower tomorrow and, of course, Sunday is Father's Day. Now that I'm past Tony's surgery, perhaps I can turn my attention elsewhere. Have a great evening and a beautiful and blessed weekend!

All My Love,


  1. I have not seen that movie, but will look for it. Thank you for the recommendation!

    Is that your house? It is cozy and charming! I love it!
