Then I found this weird sign. As soon as I saw it, I knew what it could be. It's shape reminded me of those old school Hymn boards found in churches.
a stencil and a chalk pencil...
and I had myself a Hymn board. Quirky, perhaps, but I love it. I may wax the finish to give it an antique look. Favorite hymn? I have dozens, choir girl that I was for many years.
Think I'll leave it blank for a while. Dearest suggested Amazing Grace.

Next door in my office...
Collections of glass hobnail vases, mercury glass votives.
We have to plan a shower, a rehearsal dinner and decorate tables for the wedding of Mike and Amanda later this year. So many other decorations and supplies are taking up space here there and everywhere it seems. I know from the experience with Jon and Charlotte's wedding, the time will fly. They have already celebrated their first anniversary!
I got to spend time with both of our boys this weekend. Jon spent the day, lounging and watching movies with his Dad. So good to have him just hanging out. Mike came by the next day and watched football, talked tech with Dad. No Penny this weekend. She had a busy social calendar, a birthday party and play dates.
Even when we can't be together, we still have fun.
I purchased a bag of doll clothes at the thrift, of course,and with Grandpa's help we had a fashion show on Facetime for our girl. I played the song, Girl from Ipanema, (There is no better song for a fashion show.) Grandpa held the phone as I walked all the dolls and animals we have here at home down the catwalk, dressed in the new doll clothes. (The catwalk being the dining room table) Penny and Kristen laughed and laughed. Grandpa thought I was enjoying it the most, which was true. I love to make our girl laugh, I want her to have the happiest memories of her old grandma and grandpa. She loves silly and so do I!
Clarence, my bear, Stitch and Tigger were quite embarrassed, but played along.
Four huge and beautiful blooms.
Today is Martin Luther King Day, he said,
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.
Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that."
Sending love out into the universe,
Praying for Peace.
Enjoy this beautiful day.
