And can you believe that it's the last weekend of June already.  2015 is half over.  I still keep thinking it is Spring and here it's Summer already.

On Saturday I took Joe to get the picture for his driver's license.  As he was getting the picture taken a lady asked me if she could help me.  I said, "No, I'm just the wife."  "Yes," said Joe, "the cook, housekeeper, laundry person, dishwasher, babysitter, social secretary, and everything else you can think of."  The two ladies started laughing and told him he was right.  That's the job description of a wife!

After we were done we walked down a few stores and went to Dollar Tree.  We were going in to get some batteries and ended up with $20 of stuff.  I got these cute flag plates for Tuesday morning and some red, white, and blue decorations for the tables in church where we have fellowship time before the service.  I also got two bunches of wild daisies that look really real and are now in a vase in my living room.  I've got to get a picture of it for you.

It was drizzling all morning.  When we got done at Dollar Tree we went to Home Depot still looking for the batteries.  (We still haven't found the size we need.  We tried Rite Aid, two Dollar Trees, Home Depot and ShopRite.)  I was able to get wire to protect my lilacs there.  Then we went to ShopRite and did our food shopping.  We really needed to.  By the time we got home the rain was pouring.  It took me a long time to take the groceries out of the car.  We were going to go to Saturday night church but it was pouring so hard we decided to just stay home.

So we went to church this morning.  A lot of people showed up today.  I wanted to show you the Praise Band, but the video is too large to post.  I really have to learn how to post larger videos.

There was an Elder's meeting after church so all the wives had to hang around waiting for our husbands.  We were playing with little  Miss A who isn't so little any more.

Her hands are blurry because she was playing "peek-a-boo" and was moving while I was trying to photograph her.

She thinks she's the queen of the church.  And I guess she is.  Ha, ha!  She's such a cutie.

We didn't get home until 2:30 p.m.  We went and got hoagies for lunch because we were so hungry but then we ate so late we didn't want dinner.  So around 7:00 p.m. I made us some salads.  It had lettuce, tomato, cucumber, peaches, and strawberries with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing.  It was really good.  Then we had ice cream for dessert.

And now it's back to work today.  I'm going to put the car back in the garage today to see if they can find the leak in the hose for the air conditioning.  I sure hope so.



  1. Wasn't that rain something? Really came down! I love Dollar Tree! Everything may be only a dollar,however like you,I always spend more than a dollar. Ha ha! Miss A is adorable! She's gotten so big! What a cutie!

  2. Glad you had a productive weekend, getting groceries, and best of all, finding some goodies at the Dollar Tree. It is dangerous for me to go into one, because I always spend more than I intend to! Hope your day back at work is a good one.

  3. Sounds like an almost perfect weekend to me! Even the rain which sent you home---there's just something about a Summer rain, when you've been out in it and get into the cool house, stripping off those soaked clothes and getting into fresh cottons---comforting and cozy, like a blanket over your feet in your favorite chair.

    We did the Plastic-buying thing yesterday, for the new kitchen---drawer sections and silverware inserts and dishpans and an UNDER CABINET GARBAGE CAN!! I've had the big one right there beside the counter for years, and SO look forward to the serene space and uncluttered look now (though I'll probably toss a few things right onto the floor just out of habit for a while).

    Looking forward to getting all that pretty pink liner into the drawers and shelves, and getting out just the utensils I really want, after years of rambling through the piles of two and three of some things, and totally unable to throw anything away, cause I might need JUST THAT some time. Isn't that just the way?

    Best to you and your Joe! Glad he's feeling like being out and about---that's always a good thing.


    PS did I say they're finished with the KITCHEN!!!!??

  4. Oh that Joe! That was a nice complement towards you.
    Still no air conditioning? Eeeek!

  5. What sweet photos of this little one. She looks like she is always on the move! I have a Dollar Tree close by but don't go very often. I think I'll go look for some of the silk flowers you bought. We find batteries at CVS usually. Enjoy your week sweet friend. Hugs, Diane

    1. I never thought of CVS. We'll try it. Thanks!

  6. Your little princess is adorable!!!
    We really enjoy a good salad and yours sounds delicious!
