How was your weekend? Mine was pretty fantastic!
On Saturday I got to watch my Spartans beat Michigan! Yeah, that NEVER gets old, ever!
I received some awesome mail too.
A very good friend of mine is helping me complete Hocuspocusville (HPV not the virus), by Crabapple Hill. She has exquisite hand work! Wanna see? I need to press it but isn't it fabulous?! Thank you so much dear friend!
I was sent out to do some shopping. They should know better then to send me out to shop!
"Pick up a few things for me will you?" he said as he left to finish the peacock pen.
Sure but don't blame me if other stuff follows me home!
How could I resist this amazing peacock door mat for Long Feather Lane? Obviously I couldn't!
Bed Bath and Beyond, Marshalls, and Michaels, then on to the Salvation Army thrift shop.
Lookie at what I scored!
Shelby wanted one of these for the hot cider for her party on Friday, so of course I had to stop and see if I could find one.
Luckily for me they happened to have one! As you can see it is in the cart!
I did manage to work on this little quilt that I still can only show you sneak peeks of,
but it is ready for gifting! Hallie approved too!
I worked some on cleaning, laundry and such too.
I did get my crayon challenge quilt cut out and some of it sewn too.
More about that later.
I just got a call and we are closing on my dad's house on Wednesday.
It feels good and also a little odd. This is the house I grew up in.
My parents built it and we moved in when I was 5years old.
It is kind of bittersweet to be selling it but also a HUGE relief!
It was the last part of "all things dad" that I needed to do to close the chapter on that part of my life. No more being anyone's daughter.
It is a milestone I am sad to see come.
I miss my dad.
Today also marks the 2 year anniversary of Jack's passing.
I think you have one pet in your lifetime that you have a very special bond with
and for me that was Jack.
I still miss him every single day.
It hurts less, but there is still an empty spot in my heart.
RIP dad and Jack. Maybe you are keeping each other company? I hope so!
