Mega Week!

It's been a busy couple of weeks -- and the busiest weekend (Kevin and Molly's wedding weekend)
 is to come -- all that begins on Thursday with the rehearsal and arrival of family.


So, what's been on my agenda? Well, getting the house together -- 
and the garden, which is mostly all in pots.


And I have to say, it's looking really healthy! Loving every single flower!


Lizzie watches. She's escaped from the house four times and I know 
she is giving me the evil eye, plotting her next attempt. 

 

I've hit a couple of estate and yard sales, and at one found this lovely white pitcher.


It looks great on the table with my grandmother's china and silver atop a different estate
 sale find, a lovely vintage tablecloth!


I had the great pleasure of hearing Blogger Becca play her handbells at a 
Classical Bells concert. It's a remarkable group with such diverse and 
entertaining music. If you ever have the opportunity to hear them, don't miss it! 
Even better, I got to connect with Becca afterward!


I've been swimming at the pool (and spinning and such). 
But these the photo of these towels were taken at my friend Anne's house, 
when she hosted Cork Poppers.


Speaking of Cork Poppers, look for a post on California Reds sometime soon!
 (They were all good!)


And we said farewell to friend Rhonda, who is leaving our community for 
Washington, DC. Boy, she'll be missed. (And no, we didn't call to 
coordinate wardrobes.)


Yes, it's been a busy couple of weeks. And more to come. 
I'll probably be taking a break from replying to comments for a bit 
(possibly visiting, but I'll try!) and hopefully catch up after the wedding.


Meanwhile, I hope you are having a wonderful week! I know we are!

  1. Your plants look really green and healthy! I love the white pitcher with the china--looks so nice.

    Chase Bird loves to go out on our covered porch and look outside. I'm so afraid he will get out, but so far so good.

    Enjoy your week!

  5. You keep yourself very active, which is wonderful. Spinning AND swimming? I couldn't even make myself take a walk today. But the first week of vacation for me is usually a bit "vague." Happy wedding to your family - I look forward to hearing all about it! (I did reply to your Otsego Lake comment on the blog- YES, I was there!)

  11. Oh, am I laughing! I tried again, and Lizzie, the towels, and the wine bottles appeared. That seems like a sign to me. By the time this all is over, Lizzie, a pool, some towels and some wine may be all you want for a couple of days!
