A new day~

Greetings to you!! It is a brand new day and a new week begins as well. It was a rather sad few days here at times, with the disappearance of our Beloved cat, Koo. I would go out to the stream area behind to house and call out to him...hoping he would come...but he didn't and still hasn't. After talking with my daughter this past weekend, we realize how blessed we were to have had him in our lives, and that we loved him and he loved us....and that it is time to move ahead!

Hubby and I drove off to Orange County on Saturday and he purchased a brand new motorcycle! While I still think they are unsafe...he did this just to take it out for awhile on the weekends to relax! We went to a few antique stores as well, found a lovely footed silver platter! It will be used throughout the year as the centerpieces on the dining room table change along with the seasons. After our shopping and purchasing, we had a delightful dinner out, just the two of us! We came home, put our feet up and relaxed!

Sunday morning came and up for church services....then home to putter around the house. Some items were changed in our master bedroom....pared down accessories and edited a few items, and I am enjoy the newness of it!

Monday morning brought clouds and promises for rain...of which I have seen a few sprinkles so far. Up and ready for the day, I drove to prayer at church then went to Trader Joes to get a few things... a few dollars later and a flower bouquet in my arms, it was time to come home and put food away and bless my humble abode!!!

Dinner tonight is Mexican Chicken Rollups

Beans and a big salad!

I want to thank each one of you for your prayers and well wishes! Blessings to you and yours always....

Oh Mindy, my heart just breaks for you over the loss of your precious cat, Koo. I think only animal lovers can realize how much pets become such an important part of our lives. On a happier note, I just wanted to tell you how much I have missed you and now I am off to catch up with happenings around your home while I was away!!

Mindy dear, I'm so sorry about your kitty. Please be careful on that motorcycle! Your find is very pretty and I look forward to seeing how you decorate with it.

I'm so sorry to hear about your cat. I know that you must be missing him still.
Your silver tray is so pretty, and will be lovely for all sorts of things.

Oh Mindy, what a quote..it just sums up summer perfectly. I love it. I too am sorry about your Koo. I hope she is home again soon.~~we've been busy here...gardening and things. I'm excited that hubby, with my small help..holding the nails!, will be assembing a bench that circles the tree trunk. I've always admired those. I've enjoyed your post alot...have to rush away, hubby is out stacking wood and waiting on me to join him. Blessings to you dear friend.
