Positively Monday

Sorry for not keeping my list, but last week hit me like a freight train. That being said, the week was filled with wonderful things along the way, but since I didn't list them as they happened I can't remember them, so you will have to settle for the biggest positives of the week
.

We were planning on going to Portland to visit Son1's family in a couple of weeks. Instead, he and Pip are coming here for a quick visit, so he can also see my mother and sister. DIL, Mama K, is covered up with work right now and can't come here. I hope while they are gone  she can catch up on her work load plus have a little time to include some self pampering.

I have added incentive now to get Pip's room here finished. It has been tragically languishing and need to be transformed and turned into a girly room. (Since I only had sons I never had anything even remotely prissy in the house)

When we were at the lake place this weekend, we went to a resale shop in the nearby town and found a cute addition for Pip's room and only spent a whopping 25 bucks for it.


Also over the weekend, we hit Dollar General (the lake place equivalent of a small scale Walmart) and found a 6 dollar hot pink dress with glitter embellishments, perfect for a princess. It will be something Pip can use for "dress up" play while she is here and take with her when she leaves.

Mom stayed with us at the lake place over the weekend and for the most part things went well.

Tomatoes are being harvested now and nothing is more delicious to me than vine ripe tomatoes.

My house is a wreck, but I have some time this week to change that. Hope my resolve kicks in!

Hope everyone had a great week filled with wonderful things. Look for them, I promise they are there!

  1. How fun it must be to look for girly things and decorate for Pip. I know you must excited about their visit.

    Ripe tomatoes are not here yet. Actually we've had a few grape tomatoes, but not the big ones yet.

  3. Vine ripened home grown tomatoes are bliss. I scoff them like the fruit they are.
    Have fun letting your girly side loose - and enjoy your time with Pip.

  8. Oh, how fun to fix up a girl's room after only boys for so long! Are you going to do anything to the bench or leave it 'as is'?

    I have tomatoes on my plants but they aren't ripe yet, I can't wait!

  10. Tomatoes already? How wonderful! None ready around here yet but i sure do look forward to them. Getting a little girl's room ready for a visit must be so much fun. I just had the one daughter and she loved dressup clothes so much! And accessories like costume jewelry and a WAND!!
