I Can’t Wait to Tell You…

…everything that’s been going on here! There’s so much to tell and so much excitement and chaos surrounding it.

But I can’t. Yet. But I will soon!

What I can share is that Vacation Bible School was tons of fun, as always, and our director and decorator really outdid themselves this year by transforming our church facility into Ancient Egypt while the children learned about Joseph, his brothers, and how God used one man to preserve a nation. Remember Amy’s Picnic Pretties? She did the VBS decorations, too, and they were amazing!

I can also share that I finally put up new valences in my daughter’s bedroom. She wanted something a bit more trendy and I was able to buy these for less than it would’ve cost me to make them. Yes, they are black & white zebra print, but with her purple purple walls and music decor, which includes a trio of classic symphony album jackets mounted on the wall, it just works! My thought is that if she wants to express herself through wacky valences and purple walls, so be it! It’s harmless fun for a teenager to enjoy. (Did you notice the embellished pencils on her desk?)

You’ve heard me talk over & over about how I enjoy my iced coffee in hot weather. I’ve been brewing lots of strong java in the morning and then chilling it for my afternoon iced treat. I’ve done vanilla-mocha, plain old iced coffee, and even tried a new “Italian Sweet Cream” creamer that I actually really like. The sweet, cold, caffeine has kept me going!

I hope to soon have big news about this little creek at A Chat Over Coffee

I can give you a hint about my big news. It involves this little creek. I’m so excited I can’t stand it! Hopefully I’ll be able to tell you sooner rather than later. Meanwhile, please forgive me if I’m hit & miss because the cause of the excitement has been a little time-consuming.

What’s exciting in your life right now?

I moderate comments manually but will get them posted as quickly as possible. Please keep your comments kind and if you must disagree please do so without being disagreeable. Rude or inappropriate comments will obviously not be published.

  1. Hmm, I can see the coffee and the beautiful day lilies, but I don’t see a stream or the pencils. But my work computer that I’m using now has an old CRT monitor still and the resolution is not the best, though it works for what I need. I’ll take a second look later from home.

      • Ok, I maybe see the creek. It looks like dark mulch under the bushes.

        Exciting in my life right now would be the gardens. We should be able to pick raspberries by next week. We have had a bountiful strawberry harvest, bringing in another 6 quarts today giving us 38 qts total so far. We’ll probably be picked out soon but we’ll have enough fresh to use for desserts this holiday weekend.
