blueheartmughalf.jpgThis has been a week where things just don’t go how I thought they might, or how I hoped they wouldn’t (yes, I thought about that wording ~wink~). Things are actually coming together so nicely. Wedding cakes are baked and frozen… ready and waiting for me to frost on Friday and assemble on Saturday. As the wedding day for our friends draws near and we’re making much ado about everything it seems like just yesterday this wedding was a long, long way off.

In the midst of all the hustle and bustle, Wes and I made a quick run up to Canada today to see our new friend in the dental business and lavished him with spending money for Christmas had more dental work done — more stuff that can’t be seen but mattered a lot and bcz we drive so far, I make two appointments and sometimes more for the same day (yes, 6 fillings I’m a glutton for punishment!). One phrase I don’t know if I like hearing… it goes something like this: “At your age, old fillings begin to fail and crowns, too.” They went on to tell me this is the best time to have them replaced. You know… I was thinking: You’re right. What was I thinking. This is exactly what I want to be doing right about now. So.. drill away! In the end… I was happy to know I could say: see you next year!

When we returned home, our children had lots of cleaning and decorating surprises for us. I’ll just say that it’s been many, many years since we’ve had traditional decorations—some years, very few decorations at all—well, by comparison, we sure do, now! It’s really quite fun and a neat change of pace. What’s most important, and the best part of all, is that *they* are sooo pleased and enthusiastic! So… nothing’s the same and everything’s better and the days are sweet around here. This is what I want them to remember and treasure in their hearts… that home is/was sweet.

    Mrs. Spurling,

    Do you have a link for the aprons that you are going to sell? I told my husband I really wanted a apron or two for Christmas but I am very picky. I love the old fashioned aprons that go top to below the knees and tie in back. I can’t stand the aprons that just barely cover the important areas. Do apron makers not know that we have children helping us who grab at our hip area? I have ruined more than one dress because the apron just didn’t cover my hips and my children, who help me in the kitchen, grabbed my dress.

    Can’t wait to see the store. Where will the link for it be? When do you plan on opening it? Looking forward to that!

    In Christian love,
    Mrs. Garcia

    P.S. By any chance will you be selling the Purpose Driven Life? ~grin~ 🙂
