Happy Tuesday!! I hope no one has "melted" in this scorching heat that we are having in Ohio! Lol I'm not complaining though ... but boy I sure wish I had a swimming pool in my yard! :O)
I can't believe it's been almost a week since I've done a post ~ things have been crazy busy around here! Summer vacation is in full swing! Last week I was busy babysitting, trying to get ready to have a yard sale, then actually having a yard sale Friday & Saturday, graduation party, more babysitting, etc etc!! This week is busy again ~ I'm watching my friend's 5 kids most of the week plus Princess a few days too so we've got a house/yard full! Our yard sale was a huge success! I managed to only bring back 1 laundry basket with like 8 or 9 things in it that didn't sell ~ I took ALOT more than that with me, so I was amused!
Today I got a "surprise" package from Linda over @ http://parkersparadise.blogspot.com/. She is such a sweetie! I had mentioned I really liked some bowls she had redone a lil while back & she sent me some along with lots of other goodies! She included a wonderful lil ditty bag (my first!), some battery operated tea lights, a mustard colored candle box, a pocket Kleenex cover w/tissues, some great dish towels, the lil bowls I loved, & a bigger bowl that is awesome too! She outdid herself!! Thank you so much Linda!
I L-O-V-E it all!!
The package arrived about lunch time & my son hollered in that the mail lady had a box for us ( I didn't really believe him ~lol) & all the kids were sooo excited to see what was in the box! It was fun!
Heres a few pics
look @ all those goodies!
my ditty bag :O)
my bowls w/pantry cake from my sis
the big bowl ~ think it might be my new napkin holder ~ we'll have to see how it works out
Now I started this post earlier but got sidetracked (shocker!lol) & had to go outside to see what the kid was all excited about.... guess what was under the hubby's car?!?!
The cutest little kitten ever! He's hurt his paw somehow but he seems to be getting along ok with it. We started to leave for a walk not too long after he came out from under the car to see us & the poor thing started running/limping down the road after us! So needless to say, we turned back & snuggled the new kitty instead. We tried to bring him in the house but our cat Sammy was not amused at all!!! So for tonight we have him locked up in the backyard till we decide if we should try to keep him or not. Cody is already very attached to him ~ he's very worried about him being outside since he's hurt. I tried to reassure him but you know how that goes! Poor lil man! We REALLY don't need/want another cat ~ my mom has been trying to give us one for weeks now but I don't know if I can say no to Cody or this sweet little fur ball! Guess we'll have to wait & see.
Well I'm off to get ready for bed ~ gotta get up at 6am again tomorrow ~ Boy that was hard to do this morning!! lol I'm spoiled ~ I'm used to sleeping till at least 7:45(school days) ~10ish (non school days). I hope everyone enjoys their day!!
