I am so glad that it is Friday! It has been a grueling week at work and I am glad to have some time off. I am going to do some cooking this weekend. I am hoping to make BBQ and to bake my Grandmother's Pineapple Upside Down cake. It is so delicious and I have not made it for years! Hope to have a pretty quiet weekend for a change. We have been on the road constantly the last few weekends and I am ready for some R & R! I am going to take Mom out shopping and to lunch tomorrow. But other than that and church on Sunday, I hope to have a nice quiet weekend. I am hoping to work on my Secret Garden project and relax. Til tomorrow~~~

I am starting the Secret Garden Embroidery Project that you can find over at Needle n Thread. Mary and all the others are very far ahead of me, but that is not necessarily a bad thing. If you love embroidery, this a great project. Go over to the website and get all the instructions from Mary. I have the book and materials and I think I will be ready to start transferring the design by tomorrow or Saturday. I am not sure about my colors yet, but I love the way the Mary has done her leaves and vines. I will post some photos along the way to let you know how I am doing. Til tomorrow~~~

What a Great Weekend!

It has been a wonderful long weekend! We spent Saturday in Greenville for Ansley's 1st Birthday Party! I can't believe that little cutie is 1 year old! We had great food and a really nice afternoon with family.
After we returned to Atlanta, Randy and I made Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches and settled in and watched RED 2. Today, we went to breakfast with Tiffany, Parker and Colin. Colin loved the train in downtown Tucker. Our friends, Michael and Jenna own the best home cooking restaurant in Atlanta, Matthews Cafeteria. It is located on Main Street in downtown Tucker, and let me tell you, it is the best food anywhere!
Randy is gone to play golf now, and I am "piddlin", which is my most favorite thing in the world to do. Tonight we are BBQing and hanging out at home! What a great weekend. Thank you to all of service men and women for making it possible for us to do these wonderful things because we are Americans. God Bless all of them! ~~til tomorrow....

I am getting organized!

I know that it looks as if I have been lax in posting the last few months, but believe me, I have a couple of good reasons. I am not going to elaborate, except to say that I have been caring for my Mother and have had some pretty serious health issues, myself. I am going to try and get caught up over the next few days with updating the blog and downloading photos and various things. I need to do several serious updates. ~~~til tomorrow..
