Happy Weekend!! Extra happy weekend for me... as Im off until the 30th!! woohoo.. now if I just had something fun planned.. but I dont. I had considered cancelling my vacation because I dont have anything planned, but then when I went to work yesterday, I thought, what am I crazy?? so who knows what I will do for the next 9 days.
I do plan on cleaning my house... my bedroom is a disaster and so is the porch and my craftroom.. so I'll be puttering and playing house. I got out all my seashells and beachy themed things the past couple days. And I put most of my patriotic things away. I dont have alot of of summery themed stuff, but it's still time consuming getting it all out and putting the other stuff away!
Ive been thinking about the big H word!!! HALLOWEEN!! Im thinking about hosting a halloween swap. just havent quite figured it out yet.. I was thinking about a witches hat and jackolantern swap. Maybe I would call it the witches hat and jack swap! Also thinking about a private halloween ornie swap. last night I went shopping with one of my besties and my daughter and we stopped into buffalo stamps where they have some great halloween papers out.. so of course I had to have them. Ive been drooling over them this morning!
So for today, I think I m going to head back out shopping this morning to joann fabrics, as I need some stuff that we didnt get last night. Then Im going to come home to clean up my bedroom! Tomorrow we are going to the "In Jacobs Corner" benefit. Sounds like its going to be a great day of music, food and fun. 7 well known Rochester bands, country and rock music are coming together to honor Jacob and raise money to pay expenses. The kids plan on making a donation to the ronald mcdonald house also. There are tons of baskets of goodies for the basket raffles and who knows what else. Pray for a great turn out please! These people have put their all into this event. I want it to be great.
So one more thing before I go.. I received a unexpected package in the mail the other day from our sweet Renee at vintage mending! she made this wonderful little pillow for me. I LOVE it. right now its on the porch swing. Not sure where its perfect spot is yet.. I'll be moving it around from place to place and will post a pic when it finds its perfect home!
thank you soooooo much Renee!
OK.. I have a bit of a sore throat and head ache.. so off to take some tylenol and head to the shower.
have a great weekend everyone! I'll post lots of pics of tomorrow event. wish you could all be there!
