Click Flash, Click Flash

Precious Husband says he smiles when he sees the flash of the camera going off because it means a new blog post is in the making.  Yes, it is true.  I especially love taking pictures when I see the morning sun spotlight something in my home.  

Have a blessed weekend.

Hot Chocolate

We had all four of our AZ grandkids with us for the weekend and we enjoyed every minute of it of course.  Spaghetti for supper Friday night and hot dogs Saturday night.  Kid menus for sure.  Of course you know the cookie jar was full with fresh chocolate chip cookies which made Pépère happy too.

When we have the grandkids I always make a big deal out of having coffee with Mémère in the mornings.  If it is one child alone I usually bring a tray up and we have coffee (which for them is actually hot chocolate) and goodies in bed but with 4 at once we went down to the kitchen table instead : )

This weekend I decided to start using my bright yellow teapot for their coffee.  I hope it will start a tradition - Mémère's coffee in the yellow teapot.  It was fun!

Fruitful Reading

Would love for you to visit Courtney at  She has a wonderful blog that blesses me in my walk with the Lord.  On Wednesdays she is doing a study on the Proverbs 31 woman which is one of my favorite studies.  Go check her out - today's post is very good.

Table Top Tuesday Vignette

Tuesdays seem to come quickly so I in turn quickly snapped some pictures to share at Marty'sBlog.

Today's pictures are of my hall tree next to the front door. 

The little black hats belonged to my paternal grandmother.  The brightly colored vintage umbrella was Aunt Marie's along with the white gloves.  Aunt Marie was not related by blood only by love and I settled her estate when she had to move into assisted living.

The lamp was a wonderful find at our Salvation Army.

At the bottom is a Thomas Kincaid teapot that says, "home is where the heart is" and I sure believe that. 

 The teacup says "grandmother" and it goes together with the teapot just like cream and sugar.

Home Sweet Home the box says it all . . .

Thanks for coming by.

Monday Homekeeping

By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off.
    --Anne Morrow Lindbergh

Isn't that quote true! To add a note of humor here let me tell you what Precious Husband said this morning.  After eating breakfast and seeing the morning dishes and disarray on the counters Precious Husband turns to me and said, " I don't know how you do it.  Clean the kitchen only to do it again and again and again."  Trying to be an appreciative encouraging wife I came back at him with how he has to go to work everyday, day in and day out and never complains.  "Yes, but I am retiring next year!"

Yep, there is a lot of truth too in the little saying, grandpa is retired but grandma is just plain tired.  But, it is a good tired!  If you know what I mean : )
