Bring on the weekend!
My husband has left for a guy weekend. He and his brothers are in Dover, Delaware, for the car race. Nothing like announcing to the world that I'm home alone! I almost feel like running through the house with my arms in the air screaming my head off. Don't get me wrong; we enjoy each other's company, and by Monday I will be glad to have him back.
But I have a lot of sewing I want to accomplish. And then there is the wall in the living room that I want to paint barn red. After my wallpaper strip project that resulted in our having to dry wall a room, he's not keen on my home improvement projects. So I waited until he was out of Dodge before I went to buy my paint. I hope it turns out as cute as the picture I saw in Country Sampler (photo not available).
And great news! My husband won a Sony camera, so I have a new toy to play with. If the wall turns out as great as I hope, I can post a picture.
And more great news - my Canadian daughter Mandy and her husband Shane are going to be parents! This little one is due the first part of December, and we are thinking of taking the train the day after Christmas to meet him/her.
So much fun is going lately, and I do appreciate it. Thank you for the kind emails after my Mother's Day rant. It is always a difficult day, but there are many more good days in my life than bad. Weeping may last for the night, but a shout of joy comes in the morning.
