Weekending | Five for Friday

Have you watched Dunkirk at the theater yet?  My family and I saw it a few days ago.  As war movies go, it has very little harsh language or graphic violence, yet tells the fact-based story so beautifully.  The performances by Tom Hardy and Kenneth Branagh were particularly moving.  I highly recommend it! 1.  The last few gladiolus are blooming in my farmhouse junk garden.  They put on such an amazing display this summer, and I can’t wait to plant {Read More}

I don’t normally bite my nails, but I’m in full blown nail-biting mode right now.` Tomorrow my husband and I are meeting the parents of my rock climber son’s fiancee.  I hope my hubby doesn’t pop any off-color jokes, and I hope I don’t talk one hundred miles an hour.  That’s what I usually do when I’m nervous. But I got my hair cut and eyebrows waxed, and bought a new shirt to wear.  So hopefully I’ll look calm, cool, {Read More}

Weekending | Five That Will Make You Laugh, Cry, & Wanna DIY

It’s cold and windy outside today, so I holed up in the house all day packing up stencil orders. When I was sick of looking at packing tape and cardboard boxes, I treated myself to some web surfing and movie watching time. Working on the computer for much of the day doesn’t allow me much time to just play around, so it was a welcome break. Fresh Fruit and Flowers Centerpiece Here are five things I came across that made {Read More}

Weekending | Room Reset and a Rusty Pitchfork
