Where Has This Week Gone?

Wow, it's been days since I posted on my blog! I have had a very busy week and the blog fell into last place. :) Hopefully, it won't happen too often.

I ended up working Friday and feel like I really haven't had my weekend yet. I normally don't work on Fridays, but occasionally I have to, even though I do not like it. I got a lot done, but then I was behind at home. My Fridays usually consist of getting all the laundry done and housecleaning plus plain old resting. Some Fridays it's just resting depending on how the week went. I did do one load of clothes before I went in on Friday.

Yesterday, I spent the day working on the reception my husband and I are hosting for our youngest daughter and her new husband. They got married about 6 weeks ago on very short notice. Nope, she's not pregnant and this is her first wedding, so her dad and I decided to go ahead with a reception so she would have something to remember. I had lots of details to work out, a food list to make, guest list to get straight and just a ton of other stuff to deal with. Isn't the bride supposed to do some of this? She has just left it with me to work out. She wants certain flowers, well.....calla lilies to be exact and they are oh so expensive. But, I have a dear friend who can get some silk ones which I think we will go with as they won't be as expensive. The florist quoted me $18.00 a flower!! for fresh ones. I love you daughter, but...........that is a little pricey! :) I will be busy with this for a few more weeks also, so the blog might get neglected some days.

I didn't get any sewing done at all this week. I was hoping to sew some yesterday but never got to. I am going to try to at least do a string block later on this evening. I will be having withdrawals son.

One of my other hobbies is genealogy. Well, I got a letter this week from a lady in Michigan who thinks we might be related through my dad's people. She has gotten my curiosity up now, so I am going to be checking that out as soon as I can. I love doing that, but it can take up tons of time to wade through all those records and stuff. Any other genealogy buffs out there?

Cooler weather is on it's way and I LOVE that!! I hate, hate, hate Texas summers! That is why I have land in Colorado and will be moving there when my hubby retires. I am sick of this Texas heat and humidity.

Make it a great day!

Sounds like you've been super-busy,Jan! Maybe the upcoming week will be somewhat quieter? maybe you can quilt? Take care!

Thanks, Nanak for stopping by my blog! I appreciate that! Yes, I have been super busy, but the training is done and the reception is over with, so I get to play now!!
