HELLO Monday..........


It's another Monday and that means it time to say Hello to another new week and then some HELLO's from me.......by the way, this is my 750th blog post. That's a lot of writing folks and I've enjoyed every minute it.  Here's to 750 more...............


 HELLO special Mother's Day.....yesterday was not only Mother's Day but it was also the day that our precious Andi Kate was dedicated to the Lord as a part of their church's worship service.  It was so special to share in this occasion and to top it off, she was the only one dedicated at that particular service.  So, she got all the attention! ~smile~
After church we all went to lunch and then they gave me the plaque pictured above.  Is that not the cutest???  I don't know where my DIL found it but I sort of think it might have been on Etsy.  Yes, it will have a special place in our new home.
~~~~~
HELLO to dear, dear friends........this past week gave me the privilege of seeing several dear friends that I haven't seen in quite some time.  Above is my dear friend Diane.  Diane is a true Southern Belle that has the gift of making everyone she meets feel so very special.  She is a Stage 4 breast cancer survivor and a real testimony to God's faithfulness.  What a dear!!! 
Then last Friday a group of us met at a friends house to catch up.  This group has not been together in years and years.  We were all chatting on Facebook about a month ago and decided that we should make the effort to get together face to face.  Dottie (middle in top left and right picture) has been dealing with some tough health issues so we all met at her home.  
Dottie fixed a ham and the rest of us brought the side items and dessert to go with it and   we had the best "hen party" and so enjoyed getting caught up with each other. There's nothing like a girlfriend gathering, that's for sure!
 ~~~~~~
HELLO new house progress.....Yes, siree! the forms went up on Monday and Tuesday and the driveway and patio were poured this past Wednesday.  Glorious day!!!  Now, the ends of the circle driveway have yet to be poured because the culverts had not been put in when the rest of the driveway was poured.  But, those should be poured next week and then we can actually drive on the driveway.
  The wall colors went on this past week and I thought I'd share some of the colors with you.  Of course, it's hard to get a real accurate color through pictures but you can get the "jest" of them. 
This color is Macadamia and it is being used in the living areas of the house and the hallways  All paint is by Sherwin Williams.  As you can see, I went with all neutral colors. 

Here's wishing you a wonderful new week!

  7. If your "Macadamia" is from Sherwin-Williams, that's what we have throughout my house and we love it.
    All of your paint selections are really nice.

    Congrats on all the progress that's been made on your house, and your granddaughters are sure sweet!

  9. Lea, I was doing some blog work tonight as I continue to work on a new site that I hope to have up and running sometime in the next few months. Anyway, you came to mind, and so I went to my Feedly account and this post was top on the list! It was nice to review your blog and catch up just a bit. I've not blogged much in the last 2 years so I've been out of the loop! Your blog design is beautiful and matches you perfectly! Congratulations on your new home!
