Good Weekend, Start of another Week

This weekend was a quiet one for John and I.  Saturday morning we had breakfast with friends, which was really nice because we hadn't seen them in a while.  Then we came home and I started to make some jewelry.  John washed Teddy, our Golden.  In the afternoon we went over to Megan's and went swimming with her until it started to rain.  We visited with them for a bit, which was really nice.  Sunday we slept late (late for us is 9:00!!)  We had a nice French Toast breakfast and then around 12:30 I went to knitting and John went into the office for a few hours.  They have been swamped with work at his office and he has been putting in some over time.  Last night I finished the Flower Vine Vest I have been working on for a while now!!  It looks really nice.  When I get it all washed and blocked I will take a photo of it and post it on here! Now this week I'll be able to plan a new project-I'm so excited.

Now today starts a new week.  I wonder what it will hold-hopefully good things!!  We are still waiting to hear about our mortgage for the new house.  We are also waiting for the builder to change the granite selection for us.  Tuesday night I will be knitting with my knitting friends.  Other than that the week will be a quiet one, atleast for now!

I was on last night for just a little bit and here are some lovely photos I found on there:

 I love this photo!!  What a beautiful place this is.  I wish I was there right now!!
 I'm going to save this photo for after we move.  I have a beautiful china antique chocolate pot about the same height of the one in the picture and I'm going to make a floral arrangement in it!  Just love it and I love the runner on the table.  What  beautiful embroidery on it!!
 I love photos of doors and this old one is a favorite of mine!  Just gorgeous!!
 I love cherries and I love the wire basket these cherries are in!  They look yummy!
 Peaches are one of my favorite fruit and this peach on a toile plate is a beautiful still life!!
Now this picture of the sea is one of the most beautiful I have seen.  Look at all the colors in it!  Nature is a wonder isn't it?

Well I hope everyone has a wonderful, fun week this week.  Don't forget to always stop and take in all the beauty around you!!

Lori-it felt really good to make some jewelry. I am also so glad I got my knitting project done! I have been working on it for a while and it will be nice to start something new! You need to create something soon-it feels so good!!! HUGS!

That is an amazing photo of the sea. I love old doors too, but mine never looks that good.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
