Happy Monday my friends, So how are you all today? Did you have a good weekend? What things did you do? We had a busy weekend but it was good~Saturday we celebrated our guys birthday with a lunch at our daughter's home. As you can see from the photos, Star Wars is big with our grandsons and Mr. B was delighted when he received ax from our other daughters family. The main focus has always been on Mr. B but Papa got some special attention as well. Our afternoon was spent setting up and attending a "Life Ceremony" of our dear friend Barbara who passed several months ago. This was a memorial tribute to her and very touching. Afterwards, we headed to their home and had dinner with the family; again it was good to get to know her daughters and her brother as well as spend some time with her hubby and other close friends. Yesterday we went to the Hydrofoil National Races in our little lake. We had never been to these prior to coming to Colorado-it is like water skiing but you sit on a seat and do tricks, similar to wake boarding. Last night we went to a pot luck for another couple who recently sold their coffee shop.

This week is going to be warm-yippee! The only thing better would be if we had a pool or were on a lake. We are heading to the high country tomorrow to purchase fabric for that special quilt I have planned. The particular store has the best batiks I've ever seen.

What are your plans for the week?

May the Lord richly bless you today as you seek His face.

Hugs, Noreen


  1. What a fun weekend! We headed out with some of the teens from our church to distribute VBS fliers on Saturday. And yes, July in GA is very hot!

    This week will be filled with researching, writing and attending my crit group mtg. Looking forward to seeing God at work!

  2. Wow, what a full weekend. And then you get to fabric shop. Yahoo! Enjoy!

  3. This weekend we went to the lake with some homeschooling families and had a great time. This week were doing school. But the first two weeks in Aug. were taking some time off for camp and vacation Bible school. Have a great week.

    My sister loves making quilts. Make sure you show some pictures.

  4. It was so good to see you again on Saturday Noreen! Very nice to meet your family, you have a beautiful family.

    And just had to say it is probably good that Leif never got together with Mr. B - they would have had WAY too much fun with Star Wars and swords. Leif bought himself a shield at the Renaissance Festival. ;-)

  5. Hi Noreen,
    It sounds like you had a fun and busy weekend. Happy Birthday (belated) to your husband and grandson! Have a wonderful week!! :)

  6. sounds like you had a great weekend. what precious boys!

    i can't wait to see the quilt when you get it goin'!

  7. Aww thanks Miss Noreen! And yes it was obviously Paris!

  8. Pictures, please, when you start your quilt and progress along the way...but you were probably planning on doing that anyway! You always share such great pictures....

  9. Hi Noreen! God bless you and may you have a super week.

    We're moving some pieces of heavy furniture...seems like spring cleaning just so much hotter.

    Going to get my hair cut this week...pray it turns out...and visiting with a surgeon that will operate to take my thyroid out in near future. Exciting huh.

    Thanx for coming by HomeHaven and saying howdy. Good to hear from you,

  10. How darling is he?? My grandsons are really into star wars too. Looks like you are enjoying your summer. I am thinking about whipping out my sewing machines and making a couple of aprons for my niece for her second bridal shower. I don't know how easy it might be though as I had to get rid of my cabinet as there was no where to put it which means setting it up on the kitchen table which wouldn't be a big deal but it is sooo heavy...but I do feel the mood coming on. Have a great week. HUGS

  11. Thank you for commenting and following my blog. I am so thankful I got to meet Debbie. She is a precious Woman of God. I love meeting new, like-minded people and look forward to getting to know you as well.

  12. We just had a couple of dark clouds roll in! YEAH! But no rain. Supposed to heat up again today over 100*. Hot pant pant.


  13. HI Noreen,
    I am so happy to see that you have come to visit!!! I love your visits!!! We go to the farmers market every Saturday AM. We love to buy fresh food that has been grown around here. We have a nice garden too so we eat pretty fresh food!! We have given up salt and sugar and it has made a big difference in our lives!!! It has taken weight off too!! My last visit to the doctor was a big shock to my Doctor. He was very inpressed with my blood work!!
    XOO, Fern

  14. Enjoyed reading about your weekend!
    Hope your husband and grandson had great birthdays!
    It is so hot here and humid!! We have only had a few splashes of rain in weeeks!
    Enjoy your day!
