Weekend Wrap Up

~The amusement park...hot & sticky. But, oh the fun!

~Working a BBQ fundraiser for a recently widowed woman & her 2 young children...hot & hectic. The reward...priceless.

~Watching one of my favorite movies ever, Pride & Prejudice on tv for the...well, I've honestly lost count. And who wants to count? It's never enough! CJ actually came in and watched the last 30 minutes or so. She fell in love with it, too & even begged me to bring the DVD to the beach next week so she can watch the entire movie. She wants to read the book, so I may look for a young readers' version for her. An Austen lover at 9? One can only hope...

~Staying up late with a good book,Miss Julia Speaks Her Mind. If you haven't met Miss Julia, you should. She's hysterical. I can't wait to raid the library shelves for more.

~And today...worship, reading, napping, dinner on the china, followed by a trip to town for ice cream.

All in all, a wonderful weekend filled with the stuff life's made of. Thank you, Lord. I am blessed indeed.

I really enjoyed stumbling into your blog. I'm taking a class and have to post to 2 blogs (among about 1000 other things!). I am a Christian and loved your music! Thanks!

Don't you love it when life is like that, rich with the mundane. Sounds like a perfect weekend, start to finish.

Sounds wonderful to me!

I also love Miss Julia... sweet and sassy wrapped up into one. Perfect summer reading- think I will look for one of her books today myself.

Have a blessed week!
