Two Parties on One Weekend


How has your week been so far? I'm busy with the preparations for both a family reunion in town and a little baby shower here at my house. Each day this week I did something on my list to pace myself so that I wasn't doing everything all in one day. Sadly, those one day marathons are over. I remember cleaning my entire house in one day in my younger married years - what? Now I do bite sized pieces of cleaning so that I have time to rest. Am I ready? Yes I'm getting there.

Our son and daughter in law and grandson arrive late tonight so I have most of the day to get my tasks done. I'm excited to see them, March was the last time we visited them and helped out with babysitting. 

The Miss Holly photo is her sitting at the top of the stairs waiting for her nemesis (Frodo). She loves to taunt him and scamper away just as he is close to her. My husband gave our Mary statue a cosmetic redo. She had her cracks filled and sanded, then received a fresh coat of paint. She is looking glorious.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.


  1. Cleaning is not my favorite thing so I almost always build in breaks. I hope you have a wonderful time celebrating with your family this weekend!

  2. Mary looks does Holly! Hoping your family has arrived by now and you are enjoying time together. I marvel thinking of my Moms Spring and Fall cleaning marathons. I could not do what she did! Not even in a week!!

  3. Have a fun weekend! Family memories are the best.

  4. OK, so this weekend is the baby shower and the family reunion. I hope you have a wonderful time.

  5. Enjoy your very special weekend.

  6. Hope you had a splendid time with your family.
