Friday Joy

What a week.  Rich with blessings.

I was driving home yesterday from work, thinking about all of this business about the world ending today.  I thought, well, I have had a good life. Full of family and friends.

Don’t get me wrong, I am grateful that we are all still here today.


This week we finally got some proper snow.  In a break from the usual routine, I picked up the girls from the bus stop with a sled and towed them around.  We were laughing so hard that I almost didn’t make it up the hill.

I did some crafting with the ladies.  Katy was taking a nap for most of it, so Lucy and I worked on this felt Christmas tree for her.  Lucy created some lovely angels out of felt.  I was tempted to take my scissors and straighten out some of the edges.  But why?  Lucy was happy with her craft.  I had to let perfection go…once again


I spent a few hours with my fabulous old friend.  I’m so grateful for her.  I’m also grateful that she finally watched “White Christmas.”  I was beginning to worry about her.  She made me some lovely handmade Christmas goodies.  Hooray for handmade!

My brother-in-law learned how to pin to my sister’s Pinterest account, which resulted in the funniest hack ever.  I won’t show you what he pinned because she would be embarrassed.  I thought I would include this pin that showed up the next day on her board.  I’m not sure if she did this or if he did, but it absolutely describes them.
I hope you are all enjoying your week too!
