Thoughts of Home on Thursday

I'm enjoying this sign from my sweet sister/friend Amy.  She sent it with a precious card for my birthday.

I've been making my birthday celebration/enjoyment last all week so far!  It's been fun!  Today Rachel and I shopped (I have birthday money!) and had lunch out.  With my Chick-fil-A app I had earned a free entree so I ordered that, got my free birthday cookie (which I saved to put in Tim's lunch, and I ordered my iced tea.  I spent a whopping $1.97 for lunch today!  

Emma and Lindsay arrived when the kids were leaving for frisbee.  Lindsay gave her riding lessons, Emma had dinner with Tim and I and then the kids came home with friends to a campfire Tim had built for them.  They roasted some hot dogs and had s'mores, too.

We are thankful to use our home and property to host others and to have enjoyable things for our kids to do with their friends.  It was chilly and clear and the fire was delightful.

My garden is in need of weeding, mulch, and deadheading.  However, there is still beauty to see and I am going to share it with you today. 1...
