weekend update ~ celebrations abound edition

this past saturday marked the 1 year anniversary of 'M's surgery...time certainly has flown since that day! in honor of the occasion we had dinner at her house friday nite:

beverages

ming says 'why can't i have some of your chicken?'

the geese are back along with tons of baby ducks...they come running if you step onto her patio!


saturday morning we took a bright and early trip to trader joez to stock up for a couple of months...since it's just too darn hot to do much of anything we hung out inside with all the blinds shut (like a couple of vampires) and read books/worked on crafts...i made 3 mini loaves of blueberry banana bread and 3 mini loaves of mixed berry banana bread to freeze and whipped up some homemade 'chinese takeout' for dinner using a bottle of sesame ginger sauce from trader joez...

since peppers and squash were on sale at the grocery i added lots of veggies to our meal
sunday morning we headed to church for nephew #3's christening followed by brunch at a resturant downtown (no pictures)...on the way to church i took this picture of a welcome sign i made saturday for SIL who just moved into a new house...
on sunday afternoon i raced about finishing a couple of UFOs (UnFinished Objects) including recovering 'M's 2 heart pillows she got after her surgery to help with recovery:
covered/not covered
i got bit by the jewelry making bug (cause i have nothing else to do, wink, wink) and made 2 pairs of earrings:
to round out the weekend i watched a netflix movie, notes on a scandal (i give it 4 stars) and read a book...
this week is chock full of events: today orthodontist appointment, tomorrow morning goddaughter 'graduates' from 8th grade, tomorrow nite book club, wednesday afternoon MIL's retirement party, friday nite dinner downtown at a great italian restuarant...
keep cool!

Sweet Ming. I just want to give him a hug. You had a busy weekend! and going to have a busy week. I just saw your weather pixie...99 degrees! how cow!

I liked Notes on a Scandal too.

I love your earrings. Especially the blue 3 dangled ones. I never would have thought of that idea. Looks great.

I'm upset about no brunch pictures, but I'll forgive you. :)

You have so much packed into your weekend and week. I love the jewelry..good job! I'm so glad M is doing fine and a year has passed without needing any more surgery. I love her cat! We keep all the blinds closed here, too. It really helps to keep the heat out. It's weird to be in the dining room in the middle of the day with the light on.
