Sunday Night Chit-Chat

My photo for the Sunday Night Chit-Chat is a little "love" I got in the mail from Vicki, my Stampin' Up! upline:) I really enjoy getting "love" in the mail (hint! hint! hint!)! This was a card she made and sent to thank me for being me! How sweet is that?!!! I love what she did with the lace and the circle with the faux stitching. And how did she know I LOVE Rich Razzleberry?!!! Thank you Vicki! You're the best!

Well, it's time for the Sunday Night Chit-Chat started each week by Carla at My 1/2 Dozen Daily. Carla has been busy sewing lately so check in to see all the great things she's been making. I really like the clothes pin bag she made! 

Okay, let's get started. I am

Reading...A new knitting magazine I purchased last week.

Watching...Just finished watching Broken Hill on Netflix. Some beautiful music in this movie.

Listening to...The air conditioner blowing in the background. Puppy is outside so don't have him snoring next to me this time. However, our Great Dane is chewing on a nylabone on the floor near me. Would much rather have him doing that than chewing shoes (his favorite!).

Baking/Cooking...I have had a bad headache all day (better now) so haven't done much cooking. However, I will be baking whole wheat bread when I finish this post.

Happy I accomplished this week...I got several cards made--whoo hoo! The house is clean and the laundry is done:) 

Looking forward to this week...Don't really have anything on the agenda this week. I am hoping to get some apricots picked and dried and a few more cards made to post. We will hopefully be spending a day next weekend with friends and that is always special and fun. They have a girl visiting from Denmark who was their foreign exchange student two years ago. She is so sweet and lots of fun to visit with.

Thankful for today...I am thankful my headache is finally gone! I don't get them often but when I do it's not pretty:(  Not sure what caused it but suspect it was the pistachios I ate last night--too much salt! 

What are 3 RAKs (Random Acts of Kindness) you witnessed this week...

  1. A woman brought a huge bouquet of roses--several colors to distribute to residents in the assisted living facility. She goes from room to room arranging them in a vase for the residents. And these were roses that smell good!
  2. A family that invites people to share their lunch with them after church. They drive their motorhome to church and park it in the parking lot. They always cook enough (ahead) for a small army then invite a few families from church to share their lunch. And the fellowship is even better than the food.
  3. The card I received in the mail this week (see picture above). It just makes my heart happy when I receive a card or letter unexpectedly when I go to the mailbox.

Okay, now visit Carla to see what she has for the Sunday Night Chit-Chat! I will be back tomorrow with another card to show you. It's yet another one I CASed from Dawn Olchefske so check back tomorrow to see which one it is.
