Sunday Night Chit-Chat

It's time for the Sunday Night Chit-Chat started each week by Carla at My Half Dozen Daily. The picture I chose this week is of one of a set of cards I made for my granddaughter to give her teacher on the last day of school. I love, love, love the Betsy's Blossoms stamp set and the Floral District Designer Series Paper both from Stampin' Up! This card came from a tutorial I received from my Stampin' Up! upline Linda Gutierrez. I will post more of the cards in this set tomorrow:)

So now, for the Sunday Night Chit-Chat...
I am...

Reading...Whoo Hoo! I finished A Time to Dance and started A Time to Embrace by Karen Kingsbury:) Hopefully this one won't take me as long to read.

Watching...Nothing! Planning to read tonight too, Carla!

Listening to...The wind! It is really blowing today:( And, as usual our bulldog puppy is snoring right beside me while I blog. He is sooo cute!

Baking/Cooking...I was going to make bread but decided to wait till tomorrow. Today I did pick over a gallon of raspberries and put half of them in the freezer! They are sooo yummy! I think I'll make some Raspberry Lemonade tomorrow:)

Happy you accomplished...I am just happy I made it through the week! We were gone all day Thursday for appointments and a Solar Seminar put on by the company my hubby works for (two hour drive to and from). Then we had a college graduation Friday afternoon (1 1/2 hour drive to and from). Finally my SIL's funeral yesterday (3 hour drive to and from). Whew! Lots of sitting in the car:( 

Looking forward to next week...Visit to my daughter and granddaughter:) Precious granddaughter will be seven years old on Saturday!

Thankful for Today...After the funeral yesterday, I am so thankful for one more day with my husband. My SIL was only 56 years old and my brother will miss her terribly. I want to learn to appreciate the little things more.

If you could have just one item off your "wish list" right now, what would it be? Hands down, for me it would be an iPad! It's not on the priority list right now, but I really, really want one. Someday....

Have a nice evening and be sure to check out the other Sunday Night Chit-Chat's by visiting Carla's blog My 1/2 Dozen Daily. I will be back tomorrow for the Happy Homemaker Monday AND some cards to share.


  1. Wow... You've had a busy week! I hope this week slows down for you! Youre so right about appreciating every day we're given on this earth. I love my iPad... Maybe you coud start an "iPad" savings piggy bank? I bought mine used & saved $300!

    1. Great idea about the iPad! I will start my iPad savings today!! Unfortunately, I have one more super busy week then told my hubby I'm going to be a hermit for a few weeks:)
