A Bit Of This and That

I'm sending happy mail today.  One is this darling tea towel to our sweet Maine friend, and one is some flower seeds from my garden.

Yesterday, we had sweet friends over after church.  This family is precious to us, and we always enjoy time with their busy, happy bunch!

Emma riding the horse and baby Rebecca are the youngest in the family.  Aren't they sweet?

Their kids have grown up right alongside our youngest kids.  Kyle is in between the ages of their two oldest, both boys.  They always enjoy time together.

Sarah was away all week at a youth conference in South Carolina, and arrived home yesterday.

She was full of excitement and chatter.  I'm happy to have her home.

We have beautiful weather today, and I am looking forward to a good week.

What's your week look like?


  1. Are you serious?! What have I done to deserve such riches? Oh boy! I'll be sure to keep you posted.

  2. I started early with morning services and a breakfast celebrating a friend's 70th birthday. Can't think of a better way to start a week. Wishing you (more) summer fun!

  3. I love how you are so hospitable! I used to entertain after church quite often. If not for Sunday dinner, then after church on Sunday nights. We would have a large group come and after we ate, we'd gather around the table and play NUTS! Such good memories of some really good times!

  4. Love how people connect in "blogdom." The tea towel looks great on V's stove!

  5. Beautiful towel you sent to Vee! What a thoughtful, lovely gift :-) Hope you have a wonderful day!


  6. The towel is so pretty and it does look so nice on Vee's kitchen stove. So generous and thoughtful of you.

    Loved reading about your hospitality, too. We used to have people in so often. Not as much anymore, but I think we need to remedy that. My daughters are great about hospitality.
