Thanks to all of you who are taking the time out of your busy day to stop by and visit, First let me say this has been a very blessed and thankful weekend for me, and on this Monday morning I am still overwhelmed with those feelings.
Followers,,,, I love each and every one of you. Some of you are like me,,, you visit and remain silent. Comments are few and far between. I find myself doing the same as I visit with some of you, and I should comment more often. I usually visit early in the morning with good intentions to stop back and comment when I have more time during the day. Unfortunately most days that doesn't happen. And then there are those of you who I can depend on to stop in and visit and always say hello. You are special as well. I feel as if I know each of you personally, and look forward to our chats. I never thought I would have anyone who would want to follow me in my little world when I started blogging. BUT in the last few days I reached the big 200 plus 1 follower. I am so excited!! So stay tuned for a giveaway,,, my way of saying thank you to each and everyone who drops by. Okay... now on to my weekend.
On Saturday,,, Mr. P and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. No,,, We are not really THAT old. We married when I was just 17 and he was 18. Yes, we were very young but guess we knew what love was. Against a lot of odds,,, our love has grown even stronger with each passing year, and God has blessed our little family.
Holly and Kathy had planned a big surprise party. Well,,, Mr. P. and I had planned a little getaway. Oops!!!!!! On Wednesday night when I told Holly we would probably be going out of town on Friday,,, errrrr,,,,,, plans changed. I think I almost gave my child a HEARTATTACK!!!! However I can say things turned out wonderful. I am still on cloud nine this Monday morning. She did a great post on the party, lots of photos so if you would like to jump over and see the photos and read all about it please do. She would love to have you . You can find her here....
After the party, my little family all stayed over at the cabin for a huge slumber party. Nothing like hearing Darbee Rae singing at the top of her voice at 2 am in the morning. Yes, she was still going strong. And after finally getting a few hours sleep, the smell of a big country breakfast being prepared in the kitchen by Kathy. She is and has always been a wonderful cook. We all said our good byes around lunch time and headed home with a heart full of love and lots of wonderful memories.
Our town's fireworks was postponed July 4th because of rain, and it was rescheduled for Saturday evening. As we have done for years, friends and family meet at Holly and Stacys for food and fun and you can view the fireworks from their lawn. This year was no different. After a few hours rest, we headed out for more fun. We were so proud that Maudie got to be there from TN. She missed the anniversary party and it didn't seem right without her and her hubby. We love them so much and miss them since they have moved away.
The fireworks were beautiful and so much fun was had. Thank you again Holly and Stacy for another fun evening.
On Sunday you will find Mr. P. and I in church, however this Sunday he took me on a little road trip. Nothing we enjoy more than riding down the road and talking as we ride toward our destination. A wonderful day spent together.
I know one thing. I am not as young as I use to be. On this Monday morning, I am one happy, but worn out wife and Nana. But no rest today either. Mr. P . has taken a few days off work, so guess where he is right now? Working for Darbee Rae at her
apartment, playhouse. So many of you have ask about pictures. Well, Darbee Rae will be a designer one day. The plain studded walls painted wasn't good enough. She wanted them finished. So today he is putting up walls. She called last night with a list of changes she wants in there before decorating will begin. Poor Papa!!! But he is loving it as he loves that little girl so much. So hopefully I will have photos to share in the next few days.
Well friends, that is just about all I have to share today. Hope you all have a wonderful beginning of the week. Take a blah Monday and make it a fantastic one, Thanks again to all the new followers and to all of you who visit each time with me. You are all special.
Until next time...
