Hospitality, Friendship, Encouragement

Monday, September 26, 2022



This weekend was filled with a lot of home keeping. 

On Saturday, my guys helped me by flipping our mattress and then we put fresh sheets our big California King bed, put the duvet cover on, and a fallish coverlet. Tim mentioned later how nice it looked.

Watson found it to be a cozy napping spot.

Then Kyle went down to my decor shelves in the basement and brought up my ceramic pumpkins, and my Friendly Village dishes that we use for the autumn and most of winter. Most of my dishes were gifts for my birthday several years ago.

I made Teriyaki Chicken and Rice for dinner, one night and we've been enjoying the leftovers.

Yesterday, after church, we ate subs we made at home, and settled in for a cozy, rainy afternoon. Later when the rain stopped, Tim took Kamryn and Klaire for a hike (Kyle wasn't feeling well). They got a bit wet while out but they had a great hike.

He took this picture on their hike.

Very beautiful.

I hope you all had a good weekend. I'd love to hear about it!


  1. I have long admired the Friendly Village dinnerware. Your bed looks beautiful. I think I'd like to nap there, too. ;) Tim's photo is lovely. So glad you had a nice weekend. Hugs.

  2. thank you for good wishes...


  3. We spent the weekend taking care of our 4 grands that live 5 hours away. The boys are 7 and 9 and are pretty independent, but our granddaughter is 2 and the youngest grandson is 1. We had a really good time!

  4. Oh, yes, I could happily take a nap there on that lovely bed. I don't think I could bear to put my Friendly Village place to put them away...but I do shift from the Christmas look plates to the various other dinner plates. Right now, I have the apple orchard ones showing.

    The most exciting thing about my weekend was making it back to the baseball field Sunday afternoon. That was fun to support Sam and his team. They won the first game and lost the second. Keeps them humble I guess.

  5. Oh you now how I adore Johnson Brothers have a lovely collection!
