This weekend is full of the best things.

Breakfast this morning with Tim at our favorite place.  

Organizing my kitchen pantry.

Making skinny chocolate.

Making cookies for the family.

Preparing food for our fellowship meal after church tomorrow, and then for an evening gathering at our friends' home.

Dinner prep is going on for tonight as well.  

I'm loving my Pioneer Woman bowls that my sweet friend Amy sent me for my birthday.  There are three colors, red, aqua, and yellow and they each have a unique embossed design on the sides of them!  So cheery and useful!  I love pretty things for the kitchen!  It makes kitchen work much more pleasant, doesn't it?

I hope you all have a good weekend!


  1. Sounds like a great weekend at your place!! Love your cheery red bowl!

  2. I've been thinking of chocolate chip cookies all week. Maybe it's a cool weather thing. Beautiful bowls. I bought her Christmas mini bowls last year. Hadn't a clue what I'd use them for but they just looked so cute.

  3. Yes! Chocolate chip cookies sound wonderful!
    We've packed in some fine activity this weekend, too....and looking forward to tomorrow.

  4. Love the bowls:) YUM to all of the goodies, save me some... please:) Enjoy your day dear friend, HUGS!

  5. I'll be by -- in my dreams -- for a chocolate chip cookie, or two. It's been a lovely weekend. A great Bible study yesterday on Psalm 104. Still thinking about our discussion. This morning I participated in a walk to raise funds for Alzheimer's caregivers and no rain!

  6. Wow...those cookies look amazing. Sounds like you had a ton of fun in your kitchen. Happy Sunday!

  7. I enjoy see the PW things at shops -- I agree it is so pleasant to have pretty things to work with in the kitchen. Sounds like you had a good weekend!

  8. Deanna-I am relatively new to your dear blog and perhaps you have addressed this before but what is skinny chocolate? Sounds intriguing I must say!

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...
