yesterday i got to talk to my frined Lisa in Illinois for a long time – so good to hear her voice.
and another friend and her kids came over for a nice little playdate with coffee and chit chat
craig brought me a sweet little coffee cup and some chocolate from starbucks – the perfect gift. 2 out 5 kids liked my cake i made for them for Valentine’s but Craig loved it. he said it looked like it was out of a magazine. . . ahhh.
i got some more scrapbooking done again last night. i am on a roll this week! last night i had a moment of joy realizing i could still create pages that were all my idea (not copying someone else’s) and like what i created. that felt really good.
then this morning my friend lynette called and we talked for an hour! it was so nice to catch up.
And tonight my friend Jenny is coming all the way from chicago with no kids to stay for a four day weekend! her husband is so thoughtful to give her the plane ticket for Christmas. Also the perfect gift. (there are many many perfect gifts) we have no big plans other than talking way too much. She may have to help strip wallpaper but she doesn’t know that yet. ha ha
it’s just a happy house right now.
