A birthday package to be opened, just waiting for me, when I arrived home from grocery shopping. I love getting surprise packages. who doesn’t?
The tea is wonderful with such a beautiful tin to save after the tea is all sipped up.
A handmade shawl and a Bible Study. Funny when I wrote my list of to do’s at the beginning of the year, having a personal bible study was on that list. I wondered what I would read. I only had one book – the one I’m currently reading A Time To Seek God by Francis Frangipane. I remember thinking to myself just work through this one and let God take care of the next one. So to receive this book was an extra special treat to me. Thank you sweet Mayo’s. You bless me!
I love the color. Perfect!
It is so soft too.
I love how it’s extra thick :-)
You made my day Mayo Family. Thank you for thinking of me and sending a box full of absolutely perfect gifts.
I could have danced all night ;-)
That is our Rosie girl. She loves to dance in the kitchen. She reaches for my hand.
Rosie is Gunnar’s sweetie pie.
My how they have grown.

I love “hug” moments.
And kiss-y moments.
Life is good ♥
Want to know what I’ve been doing all day?
Today I made my Mama’s Red Raspberry Tea. I have been out of it for a long time. I found some today tucked away deep in my freezer. I was so happy to find it. It nourishes my body with lots of calcium which I can tell I really need (my back hurts).
I cooked a Turkey. Tomorrow, after it has cooled, the girls and I had will remove all the meat and store it in freezer bags for meals later in the month.
I mixed up my first batch of homemade shampoo. I’m quite excited. Does anyone else make their own shampoo? How do you like it? Care to share your recipe?
I made Homemade Vanilla Creamer. Oh I cannot wait to try it out in the morning :-)
I read The Princess and the Kiss to Granton this evening. He loves a story before bed. Tonight we read two :-)
These projects have been on my to do list for weeks. They just happened to all get done today. Crossing off my list of things to do always feels good :-)
Want to see what Gracie was up to tonight?
Isn’t that beautiful?! I think she is going to be braiding little girls hair soon. Maybe even mine. I love her energy and creativity. She said it was really easy and only took 962 bobby bins to hold it in :-) haha!
So glad you stopped by for a visit.
